Unfortunately, the universal remedy to combat constipation during pregnancy is not. Start with the diet. Stool formed from the remnants of food, dead microorganisms and fiber. If you have morning sickness, you eat badly and irregularly, you should pay attention to the shelves in the store with natural fibers. Usually it is produced, process pumpkin seeds, or by using cereal plants. Only two teaspoons and a glass of water – after a few hours will lead you to the toilet. In your diet include dried fruits: apricots, prunes, raisins, figs. A good effect is produced by lactic acid bacteria living in yogurt, cottage cheese yogurt. Eat as many vegetables and as snacks use fruits instead of candy or cookies. Don't forget to fill salads with fresh sunflower or olive oil, as it contains substances that naturally stimulate intestinal peristalsis.
Minimize drinking coffee (1 Cup a day), strong tea (it is better to switch completely to green), chocolate (no more than 3-4 pieces a day), white bread (tends to ferment in the intestines causing flatulence), semolina (has the effect of fixing).
If there is a pronounced bloating use flatulence based on simethicone. Online pharmacies you will find a plethora of drugs that differ only in the dose of the active substance and price. Buy most inexpensive and permitted children from birth: "Espumizan L", "cough syrup" or other equivalent. After every meal one teaspoon drip 5-7 drops and swallow without water. The flatulence will leave and not come back.
Drink at least 2.5 liters of fluid. Liquid count: 1 Apple is 100 ml of water, 1 bowl of soup is 250 ml of water, add all the cups of pure water and drink as a tea or cocoa. If the total will be 2.5 liters or more, and constipation continues to look down – increase the amount of cereal eaten in the form of cereals. Diversify the diet of cereals to the maximum: and the child is useful, and your intestines will be plenty to form the feces.
During your movement, the child is also very active, he ceases to press on the same loop of intestine. It relieves tension and improves circulation, absorption of nutrients and peristalsis as a whole. This implies that you need to spend more time feasible active muscle loads. It can be frequent walking and therapeutic exercise, massage, and swimming. Be sure to consult your physician regarding the choice of the number and the level of stress on your pregnancy.
Avoid laxatives from the pharmacy. They can cause threat of interruption of pregnancy. And this is due to the fact that these drugs are designed to strengthen peristalsis, ie reduction of the walls of the intestine and uterus at the same time. However, if we are talking about a cleansing enema before giving birth, a great alternative is to use a simple glycerin suppositories. One candle will cause intolerable attack bowel movements after only 30 seconds after application.
If you have tried all of the above methods, but the problem of constipation is still with you, make a decision to seek the assistance of medications allowed during pregnancy. Please note, these drugs should not cause the contractile actions of the intestines. Their action should be aimed at the dilution of stool and facilitate their elimination from the body. Whatever means you prescribed by a doctor, self check in instructions its mechanism of action. In any case, such instruments should be resorted to only in extreme situations and short-term. Example of drugs: "Duphalac", "Definirla".
Prolonged use of laxatives leads to habituation and to exacerbate the problem.
If the problem of constipation you have had before pregnancy, find a good gastroenterologist and identify the cause of the frequent problems with the chair.
Advice 2 : As a pregnant woman going to the toilet
Such delicate problems like frequent urination and recurrent constipation affect most pregnant women. Usually such challenges are typical for the initial period of pregnancy and her last weeks.
Frequent and compulsive urges to go to the toilet to pee is one of the most important symptoms occurred conception. The reason lies in the sharp increase in the level of the hormone progesterone, which increases blood circulation in the pelvic organs. Therefore, all the organs of the female, located below the uterus, richly supplied with liquid and put pressure on the bladder. In addition, at the initial stage of pregnancy is a major restructuring of metabolism. The body seeks to "well purified" for the upcoming gestation, including using copious urination.
This state lasts for about 3-4 months, after which a frequent desire of emptying the bladder is lost, and metabolic processes return to normal. However, by the end of pregnancy, the problem comes back, because now the uterus greatly increased in size, has on the bladder pressure.
To solve this problem by limiting fluid intake be, as the pregnant woman's body needs water. To reduce the amount of urination is, by refusing drinks-diuretics (like tea or coffee). They contain large amounts of caffeine, which intensifies the processes of urination. Replace tea compotes, fruit drinks, mineral water without gases, i.e. drinks, not having a pronounced diuretic effect. Try to always be in the immediate vicinity of the toilet to not hold back natural urges.
Another problem pregnant women are periodic constipation. They can be caused by different factors: intra-abdominal pressure, which acts on the intestine; decrease peristalsis (this measure is necessary for the body to prevent miscarriage), the influence of progesterone, slowing down the activity of the large and small intestines. Constipation during pregnancy is much easier to prevent than to treat. To avoid them will help balanced diet rich in fiber (grains, fresh vegetables and fruits), plenty of fluids and physical activity.
