Pregnancy ailments

  1. Being pregnant does not only have nice sides. It also brings various physical discomforts. Pregnancy ailments are almost impossible to prevent, but there are a number of tips on how to deal with them.

Nausea

  1. Stay in bed in the morning and have a biscuit with a cup of tea. Eat a small amount of food and drink plenty of water or tea several times a day. Carbonated drinks, such as spa red, can also help.

Heartburn

  1. Heartburn is one of the most common pregnancy ailments, about 70 percent of women suffer from it. It often occurs at the beginning of the pregnancy, but as labor approaches, it is a common complaint. Chewing raw almonds is a tried and true home remedy for heartburn. Changing eating and drinking habits can also provide relief. Medicines that neutralize stomach acid and may also be used during pregnancy are available at the drugstore or pharmacy. To be sure, always check the package leaflet before use.

Constipation

  1. Because your intestines work more slowly, you can get constipation. Do not use laxatives, but switch to fiber-rich food. For example, eat bran, wholemeal bread, raw vegetables and nuts and drink fresh orange juice. If a high-fiber diet does not help, you can use lactulose or another stimulant (in consultation with the chemist or pharmacist) or contact your doctor.

Iron deficiency

  1. A lack of iron can make you feel lethargic and tired. You also often see paler than normal. In that case, eat iron-rich foods, such as spinach, muesli and apple syrup. Be moderate with 'iron eaters' such as coffee and tea. Some women benefit from an iron-boosting herbal drink (drug store). The doctor can also help. The drugs of the latter often cause constipation.

More vaginal discharge

  1. As long as the discharge doesn't get a strange color, smell bad or cause irritation, nothing is wrong. Preferably do not use pantyliners, but cotton underpants that you change regularly. If the discharge becomes discolored, smelly, or irritated, you could have a yeast infection. Then consult your doctor.

Bleeding gums

  1. Brush your teeth extra carefully. Floss between your teeth and use a toothpick. You can also ask your dentist for special treatment to prevent bleeding.

Dizziness

  1. Take enough rest and be aware of a possible iron deficiency. The midwife usually tests this.

Muscle cramps

  1. Try to relieve the cramps with a warm bath, a glass of milk (calcium) or stretching exercises.

Fatigue

  1. Get plenty of rest. Try to make time for an afternoon nap. Especially when you are on leave, this should work.

Sore breasts

  1. Some women like to put something warm on their breasts, others prefer an ice pack.

Mood Swings

  1. Don't be ashamed if you don't cry or laugh about anything. It's the hormones and it's all part of it.

Pelvic Pain

  1. In case of pelvic pain, see a physiotherapist as soon as possible. Exercise is necessary to keep muscles in strength and prevent muscle weakness. Rest is important to spare bands and hairstyles and thus to prevent worsening of complaints. It is very important that you take care of yourself. Do not go to extremes, but lie down when your body asks and rest when you feel it is necessary.
