Pregnancy 1st Trimester Care - Movement, Weight & Decoding Tests
Jan 24, 2022, 3:00 pm - 3:55 pm
In the first trimester, a lot of women face problems with digestion, loss of appetite, nausea etc. which may be hormone-change related. Here are some solutions that can help you deal with these. While the exact cause of morning sickness is not known, it is most likely caused by agents secreted by placenta. Also, the increased levels hormones in pregnancy can slow down digestion. This may lead to acid reflux, heart burn and indigestion which can cause nausea and vomiting. Also, an empty stomach may trigger nausea.
Few Important Things To Keep In Mind
Have carbohydrate rich foods like cracker, biscuits or a dry toast first thing in the morning to reduce the feeling of morning sickness
Eating small, frequent meals helps in getting over nausea and also heart burn and other gastric symptoms. A large meal can also cause a feeling of heart burn
Don't drink water with meal. Keep a gap of half an hour before and after the meal and drinking water
After eating your meals, keep sitting to let gravity help in keeping the food in stomach. Stand up slowly and avoid lying down
Avoid brushing teeth immediately after eating and eating foods cold rather than hot (cold foods have less odour) also sometimes helps in this condition
Try taking your vitamin supplements at night time and a small snack (cracker/biscuits etc) if you wake up during the night. This might help prevent nausea in the morning
You need to consult your gynecologist if these symptoms get worse, or you feel weak and dehydrated, or if you are losing weight or passing less urine (less than three times a day).

Hello Doctor! This is my 35th week of pregnancy and it's my third pregnancy. Unfortunately I lost my second child due to some complications during birth. I conceived after a gap of 11 months after I lost my second baby. Can I have my third delivery normal? Will I have to wait until the end moment to find out if it's going to be a c-section or a normal labour?
