Nausea during pregnancy. When and how can we fight them?

Nausea and vomiting are considered specific signs of pregnancy. Morning sicknesses are very common during pregnancy, 9 out of 10 pregnant women suffer from them! The good news is that most women have nausea only in the first part of pregnancy and get rid of them after 14 weeks.

Most pregnant women begin to feel full of the morning woes of week 6 of pregnancy. The nausea is sometimes accompanied by episodes of vomiting and a feeling of fullness and abdominal bloating.

Nausea can prevent you from feeding properly. Although they are called mornings, nausea can occur throughout the day and especially in the afternoon. It fights crumbs by eating small amounts of food more often. Choose fresh and healthy foods. Avoid heavy fats and foods. Cold and salty foods help you reduce the intensity of your nausea. Do not take nausea medicines, some of which can be dangerous to your baby. If you have frequent episodes of vomiting and cannot eat or drink water properly, talk to your doctor.

Most pregnant women get rid of morning sickness after the first trimester of pregnancy, from week 14. For some, however, the problem persists throughout pregnancy.

Pregnancy morning sickness is considered a good sign by doctors. They indicate that the level of pregnancy hormones is high enough for the baby to develop normally. There are also happy cases where hormone levels are optimal, but without the mother feeling nausea. Some pregnant women have a high tolerance and do not feel nausea during pregnancy.

Nausea is aggravated if you are tired, hungry, stressed or suffering from anxiety. If you have twins or triplets you may have stronger nausea, vomiting often because you have higher levels of hormones.

If you vomit several times a day and you cannot eat or drink anything without vomiting you should consult a doctor because you may have a severe form of pregnancy, known in medical terms as pregnancy hyperemia. Pregnant women suffering from hyperemia require special treatment and hydration infusions.

Morning sicknesses are quite difficult to prevent. You can first try to lessen the factors that worsen the symptoms. Do not get too tired at work or at home, relax as much as possible and seek answers to questions that bother you to prevent anxiety.

Eat a little and often and try to avoid foods that lower your appetite. These are usually fatty, fried or very spicy foods. Maintain your hydration level by consuming cold water, lemon juice, mineral water, teas, etc.

Many pregnant women easily tolerate yogurt, citrus and salty foods. Foods rich in vitamin B6 seem to reduce the feeling of nausea in pregnancy. Remember that as the weeks go by and you are approaching the second trimester of pregnancy, the grief will diminish and then disappear completely.
