Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy, especially due to increased production of the beta-chorionic gonadotropin (beta hCG) hormone produced by the placenta, can indeed make a mother experience severe nausea and vomiting. Usually, this complaint will feel most severe in the early days of pregnancy until it reaches its peak after the age of the womb reaches 12-20 weeks. After that, complaints will generally improve, but can also come back later when the size of the womb begins to enlarge and compress the stomach.
Excessive nausea and vomiting during pregnancy are often not dangerous. However, if the frequency is very frequent (more than 5 times a day), and occurs continuously, then you should not let it drag on. It is feared, this condition can impact on the lack of nutritional intake that reaches your fetus, thus inhibiting its development. Not only because of hormonal changes, excessive nausea and vomiting is also feared to indicate a disease, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), gastroenteritis (digestive infection), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) , to other viral or bacterial infections. These conditions may cause you to experience burning sensation, pain in the throat, and excessive production of saliva.
Usually, in conditions that are suspected of being severe, your doctor may also direct you to undergo a complete laboratory examination, ultrasound, or other supporting tests. In this way, the doctor can decide what the best treatment you need to go through, for example by administering drugs, or maybe also by more stringent observations in the hospital (inpatient). Therefore, before the complaint gets worse, try to check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician.
The following initial handling is expected to ease your complaint:
Forced to eat, although a little, but often Look for a varied diet and you like it, so that your appetite increases Consume first food that is easily digested, for example porridge, food soup, not too spicy, sour, fatty, especially if it contains a lot of gas Do not get used to lying down after eating Avoid using clothes that are too tight in the stomach area Build a positive mind, multiply relaxation and meditation to calm yourself Avoid indiscriminate drug consumption without doctor's advice Don't get used to eating snacks indiscriminately intersperse your meal with fruit consumption so that stamina is maintained Sleep and wake up regularly every day Drink plenty of warm water Hope it helps yes ..
