Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
To support the growth of the fetus in the womb, there is a placenta (placenta). Apart from being a place for blood supply and nutrition from mother to fetus, this placenta is also responsible for producing pregnancy hormones, one of which is beta chorionic gonadotropin (beta hCG). The production of this hormone usually increases in the early days of pregnancy, and reaches its peak at weeks 12 to 20. This hormone plays a major role in triggering nausea, heartburn, and vomiting in pregnant women. An empty stomach when fasting can worsen this complaint.
If you don't experience severe vomiting (more than 3 times a day), your appetite is still normal, and the fetus in your womb is developing well according to its gestational age, then your condition is most likely not dangerous. However, if the nausea and heartburn are very disturbing, you still need to get it checked by a doctor. It is feared, the discomfort that arises will trigger an increase in the production of stress hormones which can stimulate uterine contractions. In addition, in some conditions, severe nausea and heartburn can indicate a medical disorder, for example:
Grape pregnancy (hydatid mole), where the fetus does not form in the uterus, but instead appears small cysts filled with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which is an increase in the return of stomach acid to the esophagus, causing irritation of digestive infections, for example due to Salmonella, rotavirus poisoning, malabsorption, or gastritis intolerance (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), gastric ulcers, and so on. With a direct doctor's examination, assisted by blood tests and ultrasound, doctors generally can provide the best treatment according to your condition.
Currently, you can resolve your complaint with the following efforts:
If the complaint feels very heavy, you don't need to force yourself to fast. Eat small portions so that it doesn't trigger nausea, but increase the frequency of your meals (for example, to 4 to 5 hours) so that your nutritional intake is still fulfilled Compress the sore gut area with warm water Do not eat near bedtime, at least give a break of 2 to 3 hours. Elevate your head and chest while sleeping, for example by using a higher pillow Calm your mind, get used to positive thinking, try all the best for your womb Avoid taking drugs carelessly during pregnancy, except that is prescribed directly by the doctor
