What is going on with you?
You deserve another positive reinforcement - you're moving to the third trimester of pregnancy! It's time to find out about a birth preparation course, especially if this is your first pregnancy. The course is an excellent support group and an opportunity to reduce childbirth concerns. If you are feeling weak, dizzy and pale, a blood count should be sent. These effects may indicate the development of anemia - iron deficiency. The development of the fetus and the placenta in the mother's body increase the demand for red blood cells and are based on iron as the most important building block. Low iron consumption can cause depletion of the mother's reservoirs and anemia. Therefore, it is advisable to be careful about consuming iron-rich foods or consuming iron supplements during pregnancy. It should be noted that this phenomenon does not immediately jeopardize the mother and the fetus, but it is advisable to show vigilance to prevent other complications.
The "almost fainting" phenomenon that sometimes occurs during pregnancy can be explained by low blood pressure in the first few months, a phenomenon that goes away later in pregnancy. Women with a natural tendency for low blood pressure can certainly faint during pregnancy. The weakening of the muscles around the blood vessels causes a sudden change in posture, such as getting out of bed, or a quick change from sitting to standing up, there is an escape of blood from the head. This can cause weakness and even fainting.
Therefore, it is advisable not to hurry but to get up from a sitting or lying down position slowly and gradually. If you feel like you're going to pass out, sit back, and bend your head down between your legs. If that doesn't help, lie down, raise your feet above head height, and ventilate the room. That way the blood will return to the brain and the feeling will improve soon.
Also, do not stand for a long time in one place or be found in hot, cramped places. Failure to do so can cause weakness and fainting. Fatigue and weakness are an integral part of pregnancy and are normal symptoms. Usually, the feeling of weakness and fatigue go away by the 14th week. In any case, you should not be relieved of loss of consciousness and the doctor should be contacted for clarification.
What goes through your embryo?
For the fetus, the estimated weight according to embryo growth curves in Israel is about 900 grams. Of course, this is only an estimated weight, and the weight varies between male and female fetuses (larger males) as well as genetic data and more. Its length is now 36 cm. This is the week when the fetus begins to swallow amniotic fluid. He is already sensitive to sounds, his eyes open and he can already distinguish between sweet and salty. His breathing movements are increased and his body movements are also felt.
Eating: Today's diet doesn't start, not tomorrow either
You are gaining weight, the new clothes too are already pressing, when weighing in with a pregnant nurse you see a weight that you have not been alive. You are pressing. Maybe an exaggeration, so no! This is not the time to diet. Eat healthily and give up some sweets and fats.
If you eat too little while pregnant, the fetus may not get everything it needs - this is obvious and this has implications for the development of the fetus during pregnancy, but far-reaching theories suggest that this will affect his health as well as an adult. The fetal environment trains the fetus to cope with uterine conditions and similarly it will continue outside it. For example, if the fetus's liver in the uterus has learned to cope with food deficiencies through proper regulation of cholesterol production, then in a mature state it will not be able to cope with the excess cholesterol state.
You must be sighing, always guilty mother. So in order for the complaints to not start already in the womb, it is important to maintain a healthy and healthy diet and not to diet.
