Hello Ny.Lusiana Ayu, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. The state of an ongoing pregnancy will cause some changes in your body, ranging from hormonal changes to changes in the size of the uterus that gets bigger along with increasing gestational age. In hormonal changes, it often causes several complaints in pregnant women, such as mood swings, changing appetite, nausea and vomiting, and so forth. Whereas the change in the size of the uterus will usually cause several complaints such as back pain often aches, chest tightness, breathing becomes often panting and short, feeling easily full when eating, often urinating.
If referring to your case, a 24-week pregnancy is an already enlarged pregnancy, the size of the fetus and the enlargement of the uterus will encourage the diaphragm / dividing cavity of the abdominal cavity and thoracic cavity where this will make the breath begin to loose, so that breathing is easily panting and breathing like tightness, the urge also causes the stomach to become depressed so that it is easy for stomach acid to rise into the esophagus when stomach acid production increases so that it will cause complaints such as heartburn, nausea, and stomach feeling full easily, other than that the size of the fetus will cause a burden on the abdomen, so that the spine will support the heavy burden so it will easily feel sore and tired.
So it can be concluded that the condition that you are experiencing is still normal and reasonable because of the increasing gestational age. However, it never hurts if you consult directly with your obstetrician to consult the complaints you feel. In the meantime you can do a few simple things to reduce the appearance of your complaints, namely:
keep maintaining your food intake so that the nutritional needs of your fetus are still met avoid consuming tea, coffee, soft drinks, food too spicy, sour and oily avoid excessive physical activity try to get enough rest so that your back pain is somewhat reduced if your back is too sore you can apply eucalyptus oil and do the massage slowly so that your back muscles relax a little. Thus we can convey, hopefully the information from us can be useful for you. Try not to consume drugs without consulting your doctor first. thanks.
