Toxicosis in pregnant women: types, causes and ways to overcome

 

A great time of pregnancy is associated in women with joy, trembling, small experiences and ... toxicosis.

Let's start with the fact that not all expectant mothers face this “terrible beast”: a lot depends on the preparation for conception and the characteristics of your body.

It appears, as a rule, because of our wrong way of life and nutrition, a crazy rhythm of work and unfavorable ecology. Women living in the villages, spending the whole day in the open air, are much less susceptible to this trouble than the residents of big cities.

Types of toxicosis

Yes, yes, this trouble is also of two kinds, and we ourselves are not happy about this.

Early toxicosisoccurs, as a rule, in the period up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. The first month you just enjoy your new state (or remain in the dark of your happiness). But the next 8 weeks, when the endocrine adjustment of the body occurs, leads to nausea and vomiting.With a normal pregnancy, this happens.no more than 2-3 times a dayand ends by 12-13 weeks (but not everyone is so lucky).

If signs of toxemia appear much more often than normal, it means that the pregnancy is more difficult than we would like. So, consultation with a doctor is a must.

Late toxicosis(preeclampsia) occurs in only 7-16% of cases, but it is considered more dangerous to the health of the mother and baby. Therefore, immediately go to the doctor for directions for examination and advice. May occur as early as the 20th week of pregnancy.

Causes of toxicosis

There are several answers to the question: “Why does he appear?”Psychologiststhey say that women in the first months cannot accept a new life situation, therefore the body is trying to reject these changes.

ImmunologistsThey believe that the cause of toxicosis is the immunological incompatibility between mother and baby, and over time, the female body adapts to the little life inside it. We are also nervous because of lack of preparation for future motherhood, we suffer from chronic diseases and depend on the amount of the hormone HCG (chronic human gonadotropin), a high level of which can also lead to toxicosis.

There is also a theory that the sufferings from toxemia are inherited (from mother to daughter) or arise because of the age “after 30”. But they are not 100% proven.

Means of struggle

First you needtake your new positionlike a huge happiness that happened in life. It happened, no matter whether you are ready or not. Just accept this gift from above, allow yourself to be pregnant. You'll see: the calmer and more optimistic you are about pregnancy, the easier it is to endure a period of toxemia.

Observe the daily regimen and nutrition.. Walk at least half an hour a day. In the morning, don't get out of bed right away, but eat a handful of nuts or cookies, which you put on the bedside table in the evening. Remember that food must be easily digestible and fortified. Snack more often - let it be dried fruits, a slice of lemon, nuts, they will help get rid of nausea. After a meal, allow yourself to lie down for a while. Alkaline mineral water helps some expectant mothers, and in the morning on an empty stomach you can drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of honey and lemon juice. Mint will be a good helper.

Medications. You can use only some drugs, and then only on prescription.Another doctor may recommend immunocytotherapy, when the blood cells (lymphocytes) of the husband are injected into your forearm skin. But before the procedure, the husband will have to be examined for the presence of various infections. After such an injection, the well-being of the expectant mother usually improves after 24 hours.

Elena Berezovskaya, gynecologist:“During pregnancy, you can take only one drug that does not harm the child and will help from toxicosis - this is Diclectin. It contains doxylamine succinate and vitamin B6 chloride. You can try to use vitamin B6 itself. Pregnant women can be advised to eat cold in a half-sitting position, in small portions and more often. ”.

Folk remedies

Honey. Traditional medicine says that this healing product will help to deal with signs of toxicosis. It contains many vitamins, microelements, fructose and glucose, which are easily absorbed by the body. It is recommended to take 1 tbsp. spoon on an empty stomach.

Pumpkin. You can drink pumpkin juice or pumpkin broth with lemon juice.

Coal. It is recommended to take not the usual activated carbon, and wood. Of course, to find one in the modern world is quite difficult.If you are very tight from toxicosis, take coal in 1-2 tablets 30 minutes before a meal. But they should not get involved in it, because it absorbs not only toxins, but also useful substances from the body.

Citrus. Freshly squeezed juice from oranges or grapefruits can also be used as medicine. 300-400 ml of juice per day is enough to replenish the body with vitamin C, fructose, minerals, enhancing the effectiveness of enzyme systems that release the body from toxic products.

Dried fruits. Broths of prunes and dried apricots without sugar (it is decoctions, not compotes) perfectly help alleviate the symptoms of toxicosis (for 1 liter of water, take 200 g of prunes or dried apricots).

Mama Marina from our forum thinks so:“Toxicosis cannot be avoided. It may simply not occur due to the nature of the organism, but you cannot influence it. You can only facilitate the flow of toxemia. For example, breakfast in bed, drink plenty of non-carbonated mineral water, do not eat spicy, greasy and fried, eliminate all annoying smells and other factors. My personal miraculous way is work.During these 8 hours I was like a cucumber, and in the morning and in the evening I turned it inside out. ”

Cranberry. Make juice: 150 g of cranberries, wash, mash, squeeze the juice through cheesecloth. Fill the remaining pulp with hot water and boil for 10-20 minutes. Then strain the resulting broth, stir it 100 g of sugar and cool. Pour berry juice into the drink and squeeze a lemon. When you start nauseated, you need to drink slowly and in small sips.

Rosehip. Prepare the infusion in advance of 1 tablespoon of hips, filled with two cups of boiling water, heat for 15-20 minutes in an enamel saucepan with a lid in a water bath, then leave for an hour in a thermos. Drink 2-3 times a day after meals for half a glass of warm infusion with a teaspoon of honey.

Traffic problem

If you are swayed in transport (you need to somehow get to work), travel only in the front seat of a car or bus (minibus). Look ahead to the road, no need to look back or look through the side windows. In order not to exacerbate nausea. Take one of the infusions / decoctions / juices prepared in advance in a thermos and drink them in small sips during the trip.

How to prevent toxemia

To reduce the risk of collision with the problem of toxemia is possible only in the period of preparation for conception. Resolve all your health problems as soon as possible, and try to use homeopathy or herbal medicine. Get rid ofbad habitsincluding stop drinking coffee and tea.

Nutrition before pregnancy should also be correct. Exclude from your menu: smoked meat, canned food, spices, spicy, carbonated drinks, foods with GMOs, dyes and other additives.

Play a sport, but not for a week, and then throw, but regularly. This will improve the cardiovascular system and activates the metabolism. Remember about the mode of the day and diet - get enough sleep.

Another opinion. Some scientists say that early toxicosis is useful for expectant mothers, because nausea and vomiting help the organisms of a woman and her baby protect themselves from harmful microorganisms and toxic substances. In addition, the Americans conducted a study that showed that toxicosis protects the child from injury, and mother - from miscarriage.

Try to avoid toxemia, and if he came, do not worry, he will soon cease.
