In the first 3 months of pregnancy, around 80% of pregnant women may experience morning sickness with symptoms such as nausea and vomiting. During pregnancy, waking up in the morning can become a nightmare because of the nausea and occasional vomiting. Do not use medication without consulting your doctor. First of all, evaluate this situation with your physician.
Find out what makes you nauseous and avoid smells and foods that cause nausea and vomiting. Try different foods and drinks to see which ones relieve your symptoms.
Identify the foods that work best for you. Instead of eating too much at every meal, eat small portions regularly throughout the day. Eat easily digestible and low-fat foods such as bread, rice and pasta, or try a high-protein snack such as hard cheese.
Avoid fatty, spicy foods and vegetables that cause gas. Avoid fast food and fried foods.
Drink at least 2.5 liters of water daily to meet your daily needs.
If you experience symptoms of morning sickness, try to take your pregnancy supplement at night, this may help.
Heartburn As your gestational week progresses, heartburn and heartburn are common due to the pressure your growing baby puts on your stomach. It can become unbearable towards the end of pregnancy, especially in the 3rd trimester. Try these tips to see if they give you relief: Eat regular, frequent but small meals instead of eating a lot at once to avoid overloading your digestive system. Avoid fried, spicy or rich-complex foods that can upset your stomach. Drink less fluids with your meals to avoid bloating. Drink more water between meals instead. Stand up after eating and do not lie down for a few hours. Regular walking will help. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Sleep with one or two pillows or raise the head of your bed so that your stomach is lower than your head.
Constipation: Hormones released during pregnancy and reduced physical activity can cause constipation. Do not take any treatment on your own unless your doctor advises you to do so. Keep in mind that staying hydrated is especially important; adjust your diet and lifestyle. Eat plenty of high-fiber foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Dietitians recommend eating about 30 grams of fiber each day. Drink plenty of water to help cleanse your body. Exercise regularly – a daily light walk can be helpful. Pregnancy Pilates or regular training can be good.
Cravings and aversions: Pregnancy is such that even your favorite foods may taste different to you for a while. Your taste buds can also change during pregnancy. You may find that you can’t get enough of certain foods and can’t stand others! You may have incredible cravings for strange things and disgust for your favorite things. Talk to your doctor if you are worried, but remember that this is normal!
