When morning sickness ends in pregnancy
Pregnancy is very good news for virtually every female. However, with its offensive with many of them starting to happen quite strange things. Pregnant ladies begin with a disgusted look on those products that are previously loved. They can irritate any smell, even quite pleasant, and being in a stuffy room can lead to fainting. Such an incident is called toxemia in pregnancy. When ends and the why begins is a condition knows, not every expectant mother. Let's deal.
Morning sickness — what is it?
If you consistently have morning sickness and not only do you feel General weakness and adequately respond to familiar odors, it is likely you are pregnant. Of course, to confirm this condition should visit the doctor or buy a test, but the signs are pretty true. The main signs of toxicity are as follows:
- nausea and vomiting
- increased salivation
- persistent weight loss
- a keen sense of smell.
Also sometimes it may appear itchy skin and various dermatoses. The most severe form lead to osteomalacia, asthma pregnant, tetany, and acute yellow liver atrophy.
Almost every woman is experiencing this condition, is very interested in the question of whether the toxicity end in itself or it needs to be treated. Before talking about the ways of exposure and treatment, it is worth to elaborate on the reasons for and timing of toxicity.
When it happens well-being
Many women, planning a pregnancy in advance of beginning to be interested in all the subtleties of this condition. First of all, they are, of course, would like to know what month ends the morning sickness, but it is more important to be ready for the beginning of poor health.
Deterioration of health of pregnant women is early and late. Early toxicosis is most often seen at 4-6 week of pregnancy, and in special cases even in the first week of conception. However, this excessive early morning sickness, doctors not associated with the physiological condition of women. Most often the reasons are psychological: she worries too much because of the unprotected intercourse, she jumps of arterial pressure, the result is a nervous nausea.
The real toxicity is most often manifested in the first trimester of pregnancy. In the later stages women may experience this condition again. In recent months this condition doctors often did not refer to toxemia, and preeclampsia in pregnant women.
It is a mistake to assume that if a girl is pregnant, it definitely will be sick sooner or later. This statement is fundamentally wrong. The lack of morning sickness — the same physiological norm, as well as its availability. There is a significant percentage of women do not experiencing any negative feelings. Unfortunately, the percentage of winners is pretty small, so let's talk about when starts and when ends morning sickness for the first and last trimesters.
How many suffer?
In principle, the exact date is rather difficult to determine. Here all very individually. Some ladies can observe at only a slight nausea and dizziness, others are forced to request a room in the hospital. The same picture and the timing. Start discomfort usually occurs in the fifth week and ends at 12-13.
When does morning sickness first trimester in pregnant women occurs quite pleasant in terms of feel-period. It's such a natural break that allows you to recharge and experience the joy of future motherhood. But after three months things can change. Toxicosis in last time often occurs much harder and the consequences more dangerous for mom and baby.
In addition to all the previously mentioned symptoms, added edema, high blood pressure and painful heartburn. This condition may continue until the birth, so when the morning sickness ends at this time, the young mother feels happy twice: the baby is with her and all these terrible condition behind.
Why manifests the toxicity is still not known. It is logical to assume that this state is generated by a hormonal change in the body of the expectant mother that is essential for the correct development of the fetus. Of course, when morning sickness ends, which is a relief, but probably if I had known accurately the reasons for its appearance, unpleasant sensation at all could have been avoided.
Today it is well established that the toxemia most often affects young ladies with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, thyroid gland or liver. Also suffer is likely to have smokers, and those who work a lot and often feels nervous overstrain. We can highlight several factors that contribute to the manifestation of toxicity:
- the presence of chronic diseases of any kind
- genetic predisposition
- psychological components
- a very early pregnancy.
The vast majority of doctors believes toxicosis normal condition and advises to just endure this period. Of course, if you just become a little more irritable all the time or want to sleep, there's nothing dangerous. But what if you suffer from uncontrolled exhausting vomiting or you are rapidly losing weight in a time when it needs to dial?
The consequences of toxicity
So, we found out, when it starts feeling unwell in pregnancy and when morning sickness ends. Now let's talk about why it is not necessary to suffer and to wait, just be sure to tell the doctor about their feelings.
The result of severe toxicity may be the liver or kidneys. Because of the frequent retching in the body of the expectant mother is disturbed electrolyte and water metabolism, toksycznych pregnant often there is a smell of acetone breath. For the same reason a woman's body loses the right amount of vitamins and minerals, causing likely to develop osteoporosis often there are cramps. Because of bone fragility, frequent fractures, even at low loads. The lack of calcium and other minerals also leads to destruction and loss of hair and teeth.
Morning sickness with twins
Multiple pregnancy often gives the expectant mother a lot more problems and discomfort. This is due to the fact that mothers expecting twins and moreover triplets, the concentration of hormones in the blood even higher. So when the morning sickness ends (and this happens usually at 16 weeks), the future mother is waiting for a double (or triple) relief. However, the case and such exceptions when a woman carrying not one fruit, do not feel any discomfort.
What the doctors advise
All doctors treat morning sickness in different ways. Basically, the treatment methods are divided into four groups:
The first option is the most popular in severe cases. It is understood that all medication, except, perhaps, vitamin complexes and "shpy", toxic and dangerous. But sometimes without them can not do. In severe cases pregnant certainly placed in a hospital and carry out all activities under strict supervision of a physician. In this article I would like to leave specific names of drugs used for treatment, because they can be prescribed only by a doctor. In 99% of cases medical treatment is quite successful, completely or partially removing the symptoms of morning sickness.
The second treatment option is homeopathy. This method is the most harmless for the mother and for the child, because the drugs are selected individually, taking into account all the features. This treatment virtually eliminated the side effects or an accidental overdose.
Aromatherapy. Widely used for the treatment of morning sickness peppermint oil. Quite a few nights in a row to place beside the bed the handkerchief with a couple of drops of this oil morning and painful vomiting becomes weaker. Also, I use oil of ginger. If you feel sharp discomfort, place a large hand ginger oil, RUB and inhale slowly and deeply several times. Nausea recede.
Most progressive treatment of toxemia is immunochemotherapy. It's a procedure when a woman is under the skin on the forearm injected purified lymphocytes from her husband (sexual partner). The effect occurs most often in a day. Carry out such treatment only in the hospital environment after a thorough examination of the partner on a variety of infections: HIV, syphilis, hepatitis C and V. it Should be noted that the method is quite dangerous, despite investigations, there is still a risk of infecting the mother or/and child one of these diseases.
In addition to these methods, some doctors also used acupuncture, hypnosis and other unconventional methods.
