Nausea Continues At 5 Months Of Gestation?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. when the first trimester I often nausea and vomiting, stepping on the 4th month I did not experience nausea anymore. But stepping on the 5th month I was nauseous again, plus every time I was exposed to sunlight in the morning or afternoon. My head immediately dizzy and my body became weak and sometimes shortness of breath too. Is that okay with my pregnancy? thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nausea and vomiting are one of the most common symptoms in pregnancy. This can occur due to the influence of hormones in pregnancy, stress factors, increased nose sensitivity to odor, or because of other medical conditions such as infections and stomach acid disease.
Most commonly, the nausea only lasts for a maximum of 20 weeks or 5 months. However, a small proportion of pregnant women can continue to nausea after that, even close to delivery. So assess whether this is a dangerous condition and needs to be treated or not, not from what gestational age you are experiencing the condition, but from other aspects.
One aspect is the severity of nausea itself. How many times you have nausea in a day, and whether the nausea is vomiting or not. When you vomit, how many times do you vomit, whether only occasionally or indeed often so that a lot of fluids and nutrients come out of your body. Other aspects can be assessed from whether you have a fever, low blood pressure, pale, fatigue, tightness, or other disturbing symptoms.
It's easy, if you can still do your daily activities or deal with nausea well, then that can be normal. But if it gets very annoying, then there might be certain diseases that need to be treated. For that, check yourself to the obstetrician to ascertain his tendency through digging history, physical examination and support if necessary. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, to cope with nausea in pregnancy you need to rest more, avoid sharp odors such as cigarette smoke, consume food in small but frequent portions, reduce physical activity, do not think of the nausea, consumption of ginger and other warm drinks, avoid lying down after eating, brush your teeth and rinse after eating, and don't forget to drink a lot to avoid dehydration during pregnancy. So, hopefully answering your question.
