Is It Dangerous To Eat Jackfruit When You Are Pregnant?
I was 12w pregnant, last night I accidentally ate jackfruit vegetable. The effect was nausea, lots of belching, and my stomach didn’t feel good. Is it dangerous for my fetus?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In fact, as long as you are not allergic to jackfruit, consumption of jackfruit during pregnancy is not a dangerous thing. However, often, jackfruit is processed using enough coconut milk. Most likely, this is what triggers your complaint at this time.
Excessive consumption of coconut milk in some sensitive people can trigger an increase in stomach acid so that it triggers nausea, bloating, frequent belching, stinging, tightness, lumps, heat, and other uncomfortable sensations in the stomach. The condition of you who are pregnant, where pregnancy hormone production increases at a young gestational age, can further aggravate this complaint. Plus, the growing size of pregnancy can push your stomach and bring out more striking discomfort. Other factors, such as psychological stress, fatigue, improper eating patterns, side effects of medications, etc. can also make your complaints worse.
As long as the intensity of your complaint is mild, often this condition is harmless and does not interfere with the health of your unborn baby. However, if you feel a complaint that is very disturbing, or accompanied by massive vomiting, severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, and other severe complaints, we suggest you not let it drag on. It is feared, your complaints are aggravated by digestive infections, intestinal inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, poisoning, etc. that need to be treated immediately by a doctor. If this is the condition that you are experiencing, get yourself checked by a doctor or obstetrician so that you are given the correct treatment.
Here are the initial suggestions you can apply:
Drink plenty of warm water
Eat first food that is easily digested, for example, a sauce, soft texture
Don't over-consume bersantan, spicy, sour, or also contain a lot of gas
Do not also consume food or drinks that are not hygienic
Warm compresses on the stomach that feel uncomfortable
Get more rest
Do not carelessly take medication while pregnant
Hope this helps ...
