Many mothers-to-be experience vomiting during early pregnancy, and may occasionally feel a burning and painful stomach, which may aggravate the vomiting reaction and make them feel uncomfortable.
This is because after pregnancy, because the body secretion of a variety of hormones increased, gastrointestinal smooth muscle tension was affected and decreased, gastrointestinal peristalsis decreased, gastric acid and pepsin secretion decreased, lower esophageal sphincter tension of mothers-to-be also reduced, so acid secretion reflux to the lower esophagus It causes a burning sensation or pain in the stomach or esophagus. If the expectant mother has already suffered from chronic stomach disease during pregnancy, it may become serious during pregnancy.
So, how to deal with the symptoms of “stomach pain” in early pregnancy? You can try the following several ways.
1. pay attention to rest after meals.
At noon, many people take a lunch break immediately after lunch. But when the expectant mothers are just full, do not lie down and rest immediately. Because when full immediately lie down, the food in the stomach may be refluxed through the esophagus, causing a burning sensation of the esophagus, but also may make the stomach acid, it is easy to cause stomach pain. My mother would take a walk after lunch, and rest in about 20-30 minutes. Walking is an excellent exercise during pregnancy, not only conducive to blood sugar control during pregnancy, but also conducive to the development of the baby.
2. pay attention to diet control.
Pregnancy does not require major supplements, coupled with expectant mothers will have vomiting reaction, eating high-nutrient food may not be able to be well digested and absorbed. Therefore, it is recommended that pregnant women eat lighter, with appropriate meat, eat less hot and sour, fried and fatty food, in order to avoid causing excessive gastric acid or indigestion. It is recommended that mothers-to-be eat less and more meals in the early pregnancy, which can also reduce the burden on the stomach and avoid the onset of stomachache.
3. pay attention to sleeping posture.
If the stomach feels uncomfortable when sleeping, mothers-to-be can also try the side sleeping position, because the body is relaxed when sleeping, reducing the pressure on the stomach, alleviating stomach discomfort.
Mothers-to-be also need to be aware that if recurrent stomachaches or stomachaches are serious enough to interfere with normal work and rest, they need to go to a hospital and consult a doctor about whether to use some gastric mucosal protectant or antacid to treat stomachache. Medication during pregnancy should be cautious. Do not use your medicine on your own.
