When you are pregnant your body is in constant changes, things like the volume of blood risen up and the movement of your organs to accommodate your growing baby, are done on a routine basis.
Your body undergoes tremendous changes while you are pregnant, so side effects are guaranteed. This is a summary of some of the most common pregnancy symptoms and how you can deal with them.
EVERYTHING MAKES YOU NAUSEOUS:
Avoid having an empty stomach. Eat small meals and snacks, and avoid fried, spicy, or high-fat foods. Maintain a pleasant and cool body temperature; too much heat could make you nauseous.
Cut back on caffeine, which will benefit both you and your baby. Caffeinated drinks will make you urinate more often. Keep in mind that, from time to time, when you sneeze or laugh, you may have some urine leakage. It is best to carry some protectors in your bag just in case.
YOU ARE TIRED ALL THE TIME:
Rising levels of progesterone in your body are to blame for drowsiness. Get plenty of rest, exercise every day, and be sure to include enough protein and iron in your diet.
YOU FEEL DIZZY
Mild dizziness is common. To avoid them, you can try not to stand for long periods and try to get up slowly after lying down or sitting down. If the dizziness is severe and you have abdominal pain or bleeding, see your doctor immediately.
Because baby is getting heavier every day, your back will need some love. Get a massage from your partner or a professional, and use heating pads or ice packs to soothe the pain. Avoid platforms and wear low-heeled shoes for now.
PAIN IN YOUR LEGS
Stay hydrated and exercise regularly to avoid leg cramps. Since they often appear at night, stretching your calves before bed can help. Do you have a cramp? Massage your leg and apply a hot towel or hot water bottle to relax that sore muscle.
