Feels Like Catching A Cold In 3 Months Pregnancy?
Thank you, I want to ask. now I am pregnant with my second child, I have entered 3 months, but my stomach really feels like I’m catching a cold. But there is no nausea. Even though it is orderly, please explain. Thanks again
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the pregnancy hormone can indeed affect the digestive tract too. The hormone progesterone can relax muscles throughout the body, including the muscles in your intestines and digestive tract. This will cause a slowdown in bowel movements and a slowdown in gastric emptying. The wind in the digestive tract that is usually released when farts can also accumulate in the intestine and cause the stomach to feel full and windy. This condition is a fairly common condition experienced by pregnant women and is not dangerous.
Here are some things you can do to reduce bloating in the stomach:
eat less foods that produce gas, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, asparagus
eat less high-fat foods
drink less carbonated drinks or coffee
avoid drinking using a straw
eat smaller portions but more often
eat more slowly and chew food until smooth
avoid eating foods that contain artificial sweeteners
drink in sufficient quantities every day (at least 2-3 liters a day)
do light exercise regularly every day
If indeed the symptoms of bloating really interfere with your daily activities, consult your obstetrician for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
