The hard life of a pregnant woman. Rarely meet a future mother, who would not have suffered from this disease for at least a couple of weeks in all 9 months.But with this phenomenon, despite its popularity and even routine, it is possible and necessary to fight. And in order to know how to deal with toxicosis, you need to determine the causes of its occurrence.
There are early and late toxicosis, each of them has its own characteristics and causes.
Early toxicosisusually suffer before 12-13 weeks of pregnancy: nausea, vomiting, especially in the morning, in 50% of women, it also passes by the time of the first movement of the fetus. This condition is the norm, it faces more than 80% of all pregnant women in the world. So you're not alone in your "happiness."
“The appearance of toxicosis in early pregnancy is often associated with gastrointestinal problems in a woman. When vomiting pregnant women should consult a doctor, because there is a threat of an increase in acetone, you may need treatment in the day hospital. In case of nausea, especially in the morning, it is necessary, without taking a vertical position, to drink or eat something: cold tea with lemon, peppermint candy, a crouton of white bread.It is also worth adjusting the diet: there is often, but in small portions, do not overeat and do not go hungry. Homeopathic remedies have proven themselves in the treatment of early toxicosis: drops, pills, ”- Alla Lazarevich, obstetrician-gynecologist, City Clinic.
Late toxicosis- quite another thing, it is attributed already to the pathologies of pregnancy. If a pregnant woman is at risk, for example, she has a kidney or cardiovascular disease, then when they are registered and in the early stages of pregnancy, doctors will take into account the possible appearance of late toxicosis and carry out timely prevention. Late toxicosis is a very dangerous thing, it is a direct threat to abortion. Sometimes this toxicosis can last until the birth, but when it can begin, it is very individual, and from the 23rd week it happens, and later, from the 34th week. Given the high risk, treatment of late toxicosis most often requires hospitalization.
“Sometimes the cause of late toxicosis can be an acute respiratory viral infection during pregnancy, in which case a woman should monitor her health and in time pass all routine checkups and get tested.Pregnant women at risk should keep a diary, record the data necessary for doctors, regularly measure pressure, monitor the condition of the child. This should be done in the following way: during the daylight, at least ten fetal movements must be heard. If you are not sure, or missed, then from 6 to 9 pm, not on an empty stomach, you should feel at least 6 perturbations. If you manage to count less - contact your doctor as soon as possible ”, - Alla Lazarevich, obstetrician-gynecologist, City Clinic.
Whatever the causes of toxicosis, it is easier to prevent than to treat it.
