Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Nausea, vomiting during young pregnancy is normal. This condition is called morning sickness. Where, this condition is caused by high pregnancy hormone (HCG) in the blood. This hormone stimulates an increase in stomach acid levels and affects psychologically. So that pregnant women become sensitive to the smell, taste and no appetite which increasingly causes an increase in stomach acid production. The condition causes symptoms of nausea and vomiting.
If the nausea and vomiting experienced by pregnant women occur all day until they become dehydrated, which is characterized by dizziness, weakness, rarely urinate, dry skin, and palpitations, then immediately consult with a gynecologist. So that further inspection can be done. Even if necessary the doctor will do blood and urine tests to see signs of dehydration or electrolyte disturbances. In addition, the doctor will conduct an ultrasound examination, to see the condition of growth and development of the fetus in the womb. This condition, called hyperemesis gravidarum. As for handling, is to provide a replacement fluid that contains electrolytes and sugar if needed. Then, vitamins (especially B1 and B6) as well as dietary supplements and anti-emetic medications. Pregnant women in this condition, generally will be advised to undergo treatment in hospital.
Meanwhile, mothers can try to relieve nausea at home by consuming warm ginger. Eat small but frequent portions. Avoid spicy, pungent and greasy foods.
The spots experienced previously, can be normal. Where the condition is caused by fertilized egg cells sperm sticking themselves into the endometrial lining of the uterus (implantation process, this is a normal process). Mother can rest without worrying too much. However, if bleeding occurs from the birth canal (not spots), reduce activity and then immediately consult an obstetrician.
Thus hopefully useful.
