Hello Velia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
At the beginning of pregnancy until the age of 20 weeks is indeed a vulnerable period for complaints of nausea, vomiting, which even can cause disruption of food and drink intake because at this time pregnancy hormone (beta hCG) is being produced in amounts high enough so that it can stimulate complaints of nausea, vomiting.
At the time of gestational age has entered the age of 20 weeks and above, generally complaints of nausea, vomiting that arises again is not caused by pregnancy hormones because at that gestational age, pregnancy hormones have been maintained in stable amounts.
Complaints of mul vomiting and shortness as you feel may be triggered due to increased stomach acid, dyspepsia syndrome, gastrointestinal infections, side effects of drugs consumed or due to the growing size of the uterus so that it starts to push the digestive organs around it.
If this complaint is felt so disturbing that it makes it difficult for you to eat, drink or rest, then it is advisable to check the complaint further to the obstetrician to be evaluated so that it can be determined what is the cause and what therapy should be given to you. In addition, the examination is also recommended to monitor the condition of your fetus.
In the meantime, keep your food intake so that it is always nutritious enough and balanced every day. Make sure you get adequate fluid intake at least 2 liters a day, increase your intake of vegetables and fruit, get adequate rest and avoid excessive stress / fatigue. You are also encouraged to continue taking drugs / supplements recommended by your obstetrician and avoid taking other drugs without clear advice from your doctor.
If the complaint causes you to not be able to eat or drink at all or very little, it is advisable to immediately go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital for immediate treatment.
I hope this helps.
