Lazy To Work While Pregnant?
I’m a 23 year old woman and I’m about 6 weeks pregnant, before I got pregnant I liked to drink coffee to avoid drowsiness and laziness, and after I got pregnant I didn’t eat it, so I was often sleepy and lazy to do activities, especially after eating, what’s the solution? Thank you
First of all, I want to thank you for asking questions on HealthReplies.com. I will try to help answer your question,
Complaints of weakness and drowsiness and lazy activity that you experience after not consuming coffee suddenly is a natural thing. You need to know beforehand that coffee is a source of caffeine which serves to stimulate the nerves. This is of course if someone is used to drinking coffee and depending on caffeine intake it can cause symptoms. These effects of caffeine dependence usually cause symptoms within 12 to 24 hours of stopping intake i.e.,
2. Easily Tired
3. Difficult to concentrate
However, usually these symptoms will only persist for 2 days to 1 week, therefore this is not something to worry about and of course it takes patience to stop the caffeine dependence. Because during pregnancy coffee consumption is very risky to cause anemia, miscarriage, low baby weight and complicated births, it is very important for you to stop your coffee consumption. If it is still difficult for you, you can reduce coffee consumption in pregnant women to a maximum dose of 2 cups of coffee or 200 mg of caffeine in 1 day.
Here are some tips that you can do,
1. Try to replace your coffee consumption with fruit or vegetable juice
2. Enough rest
3. Try doing regular exercise to avoid thinking about coffee
4. If your symptoms are getting worse, you should consult a doctor so that further examination can be carried out.
