Alternate Consumption Of Pregnant Milk?
Good afternoon …. I am 5 weeks pregnant. And lately my appetite has become very reduced, even though I am forced to eat, I still cannot consume much, only very little. Therefore, I chose to increase other intake with pregnant women’s milk.
Hello Mrs. Dhesty! Congratulations on the pregnancy. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Nausea and vomiting in pregnant women often occur from weeks 4 to 7 and persist until weeks 12-14. Nausea and vomiting can occur both during the day and at night. Apart from being pregnant, it is also important to pay attention to whether there are other diseases that cause nausea and vomiting, such as stomach disease, urinary tract infections, or diarrhea. If the nausea and vomiting experienced is very severe, this nausea and vomiting is called hyperemesis gravidarum. In hyperemesis gravidarum, pregnant women experience dehydration (characterized by dark yellow to brown urine) and weight loss. Pregnant women with hyperemesis gravidarum should be hospitalized.
Food remains the main source of nutrition and cannot be replaced only with milk for ordinary pregnant women. Pregnant women who experience nausea and vomiting are advised to eat small amounts of food but often, for example, eating a few spoons every 2-3 hours. Choose foods that are high in carbohydrates but low in fat, such as potatoes, rice, or pasta. Mothers can also choose biscuits or crackers as a snack. Avoid foods with strong odors. If you keep vomiting after eating a little or vomiting that you experience interferes with your daily activities, you should immediately see your obstetrician. The doctor will examine you and give drugs to reduce nausea which are safe for pregnant women. Mother also should drink more often. Avoid drinking too much at once as it can trigger nausea. Drink little by little but often (every 10-15 minutes). You can create reminders to drink on your cell phone. Lack of drinking when nauseous and vomiting can cause you to become dehydrated which is dangerous for your baby. You can alternate your meal schedule by consuming milk for pregnant women. You can choose any trademark you like and you can change these brands as long as all the brands you choose are registered by the Food and Drug Administration (BPOM).
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
