Nausea, Vomiting But Increased Appetite During Young Pregnancy?
HealthReplies.com, I am currently 7 weeks pregnant.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Morning sickness is a common symptom experienced by women who are pregnant in the first trimester. This condition is not dangerous as long as the woman can still eat and drink in sufficient quantities to meet the nutritional needs of her baby. Different from its name, morning sickness does not only strike in the morning, but can strike at any time including at meal times. This condition is very likely to make you not eat in sufficient quantities at regular meal hours, so you often feel hungry outside your mealtime.
Women who experience morning sickness are advised to eat whenever you feel you can eat. Even so, you still need to control the amount of food that comes in and also the type of food you eat. Pregnant women do not need to eat double the usual amount of food. In fact, in the first trimester you don't need extra calories to support the growth of your fetus, so you are better advised to eat some of your usual meals. Also pay attention that you continue to eat foods that are full of nutrition and avoid eating foods that are high in calories but little nutrition such as sweet cakes, or chips. It is very important that you pay attention throughout your pregnancy to prevent excess weight gain during pregnancy. As long as the amount of food you can still control, eating out of meals you can still do and will not affect the development of your fetus. During pregnancy, you must consume pregnancy vitamins to meet the nutritional needs of you and your baby. Control regularly to your midwife or obstetrician to ensure the health of you and your baby throughout your pregnancy.
