PREGNANCY

Ques. 1 What are the general symptoms that should be taken care of in pregnancy?
Ans. During pregnancy: it is very important for the mother to maintain good health, otherwise it could affect her as well as her baby.

The most common symptoms during pregnancy are:
(a) Nausea
The majority of women experience nausea and vomiting during the first three months of pregnancy. Approximately 14 to 15 weeks. Nevertheless, these symptoms disappear after the fourth month but in few cases it may even persist for long time. The increase of hormones such as progesterone and estrogen is probably what causes nausea. When arterial pressure goes down it can also produce nausea.
The following indications can help you to control nausea-

  • Have small and frequent meals instead of a few big meals.
  • Exercise daily.
  • Relaxing. Resting and the intake of minerals and water.
  • If you can’t control the nausea do not prescribe yourself any medication, your child’s health is at stake; consult your physician.
  • Since nausea generally occurs in the morning, eating a cracker or a piece of toast before getting up is recommended.
  • Try not to eat sweets or food high in fat.

(b) Backache
This can be due to several reasons:
(1) If your pregnancy is about to come to term, excessive weight can tear ligaments in the column causing some pain. Use a girdle for support.
(2) A back problem.
(3) Uterus size can press a nerve such as the sciatica nerve and cause pain in the lower part of the back.
(4) If pregnancy is less than 3.5 months and there is vaginal bleeding or pain in the lower part of the back or abdomen it is urgent that you see a physician.
