Therefore, some pregnant mothers will worry: is sweating severe because of physical weakness? Sweat and will not lead to loss of nutrition, affecting the baby? Today we are going to talk about the topic of perspiration during pregnancy.
Why does pregnant mother sweat?
During pregnancy, sweating is not a physical phenomenon, but a normal physiological phenomenon. The reasons are as follows:
The metabolism is strong during pregnancy.
After pregnancy, the mother’s metabolism will be stronger than before pregnancy, so the skin will emit more heat. Basal body temperature will be higher than before pregnancy, heat resistance is worse than before pregnancy, slightly active is easy to sweat.
Increased food intake
In order to get better nutrition for the baby, pregnant mothers will eat more food, coupled with increased progesterone secretion, maternal fat and blood circulation will increase accordingly, resulting in the body’s basic temperature rise, sweating more. Especially when the weight is overweight, sweating will be more serious, which is also related to eating too much.
Lack of exercise
Maybe it’s to reduce the harm to the baby, or maybe it’s because of the heavy physical burden during pregnancy. Many mothers don’t keep the habit of exercising. Therefore, as long as the movement is a little bigger, sweat is dripping. The pregnant woman with weak constitution is more obvious. In fact, as long as a moderate increase in some sports, improve physical fitness.
Potential problems of calcium deficiency
Usually sweating is normal, and it doesn’t need to be too intense. But there is a case of sweating should be noted, that is, pregnant mothers lack of calcium! Pregnant women need a large amount of calcium, pregnant mothers are easy to lack calcium. When the pregnant mother is short of calcium, the decrease of blood calcium concentration will cause vegetative nerve dysfunction and cause sweating. This situation needs attention, because calcium deficiency during pregnancy will not only affect the health of pregnant women, but also affect the growth and development of the baby. Therefore, mothers with hyperhidrosis can consult an obstetrician and gynecologist to determine whether they have calcium deficiency.
