What can be done about nausea and vomiting?
Usually, nausea and vomiting resolve on their own after the fourth month of pregnancy. To reduce nausea and vomiting, avoid fatty foods and coffee. Eat often but in small portions. Consult a doctor in case of severe and repeated vomiting, since this condition can be so severe it can require in-patient treatment. With careful implementation of your doctor’s recommendations, problems with severe vomiting can be avoided
What is normal weight gain in pregnancy?
During pregnancy, you should gain no more than 10-12 kg (about 350 g per week). Check your weight regularly. As a rule, weight gain starts around week 20. Eat regularly, without overeating and reduce your consumption of salt, sweets and spicy foods, that help limit your fluid intake. Add protein food to your diet (veal, chicken, fish, lentils) not fatty food.
I am pregnant and have a profuse discharge. Is this normal?
Under the influence of pregnancy hormones, vaginal mucosa cells are renewed rapidly and the dead cells are removed from the body in the form of a thick white substance. The discharge can be profuse or in small amounts. So long as it’s not accompanied by burning, itching or an unpleasant smell, and it doesn’t contain blood clots, the discharge is normal. However, it is necessary to consult a doctor to exclude leaking amniotic fluid, threat of termination or fungal and other infections.
