Diarrhea In Pregnant Women?
I’m a 20 year old woman, I’m currently pregnant, but I’m currently burping a lot, and this morning I had a lot of loose stools and I was cold too, is it dangerous for the womb? I really haven’t eaten this morning until noon
Thank you for your question
Burping occurs because the body is trying to get gas from the body naturally, where this gas arises as a result of the digestive process of food or when air is swallowed through the mouth and enters the digestive tract (aerophagia). In addition, many things also cause air to enter the body, such as eating too fast or talking while eating or because of consuming foods and drinks that trigger belching (nuts, bananas, soda drinks, alcoholic beverages, foods that contain a lot of sugar). , flour and fiber). You also need to remember that this burping can also be caused by an anxiety disorder. During pregnancy there can be suppression of the digestive organs so that the size of the digestive cavity is narrower than it should be and causes the digestive cavity to be easily filled with digestive gases compared to conditions before pregnancy. This will cause you to burp more easily than before you got pregnant. Inflammation of the stomach due to late eating can also cause the formation of excessive gas in the stomach organs so that you are easy to burp. So indeed things related to the occurrence of burping you should avoid (other than pregnancy). To determine whether there are certain conditions that cause you to burp, then an examination must be carried out by a doctor (gastrointestinal examination). So it cannot be concluded directly whether this condition is dangerous or something that is not dangerous. But usually burping is nothing to worry about.
Regarding diarrhea during pregnancy or when not pregnant, it is actually a harmless thing as long as it doesn't cause you to become dehydrated. Dehydration will occur if you experience liquid bowel movements quite often and do not get enough fluid intake (water or ORS) to replace the fluids that come out when you have diarrhea. So you should consume enough fluids to prevent dehydration. If dehydration continues, then your body's circulation will be disrupted, you can experience a drop in blood pressure, so you can experience cold or other body function disorders. Remember, that the need for blood supply (blood circulation) during pregnancy is not only for your body but also for the needs of the fetus in your womb. So if you are severely dehydrated, this is also likely to cause disturbances to your fetus. To ensure the condition of your fetus, you should do a pregnancy examination and a pregnancy ultrasound examination.
Hope this answer helps you.
