A friend who was just pregnant said: after pregnancy, in addition to feeling physically tired, the whole person’s temper has somehow become bad. He often loses his temper because of a little thing, and he will be sad because of something inexplicable, with ups and downs.
▍ why are pregnant mothers so sensitive?
Pregnancy reactions and changes in social roles after pregnancy are easy to make pregnant mothers have different psychological reactions.
Physiological factors: after pregnancy, there are great changes in hormones in the body, such as progesterone, estrogen and chorionic gonadotropin, which will change the pregnant mother’s appetite, breast and reproductive system. Physical changes will also affect the emotional state of pregnant women, especially older pregnant women who have a history of adverse pregnancy and childbirth are more likely to have adverse emotions such as anxiety and depression.
Psychological factors: some pregnant mothers have great mental pressure, and their will to protect the fetus is significantly enhanced. With the increase of age, the burden of pregnant mothers is becoming heavier and heavier, the action is inconvenient, and the ideological pressure increases near delivery, which will also lead to emotional depression, anxiety, excitement and so on.
In addition to the above two reasons, pregnant vomiting, economic pressure, family relations, poor eating and sleeping are all the reasons for the emotional changes of pregnant mothers. As a family, we should understand the emotional changes of the pregnant mother. The family should be considerate of the pregnant mother and help her alleviate her anxiety and anxiety.
It is often said that “mother and son are connected”, especially when the pregnant mother is in a bad mood, the fetus and baby will be restless. Just like being able to feel the emotional fluctuation of the pregnant mother, it is not conducive to the healthy development of the fetus and the health of the pregnant mother.
