Removing swelling during pregnancy, what means more reliable?As they say obstetricians, swelling occur in 60% of pregnant women.They represent the accumulation of fluid in the tissues of the body, which is manifested in the form of swelling in different parts of the body.
How to diagnose
pregnant woman herself can check the presence or absence of edema.Many say that it became more difficult to remove from his finger the ring, and after taking off on your finger for a long time remained a trace of decoration - it is said that the liquid is retained in the body.By pressing a finger on the skin shin can remain long recess - this is called a pasty, mild edema.
reasons why swollen feet during pregnancy are different.It is necessary to distinguish between physiological and pathological swelling.Strict separation between these types of there, so for pregnant women conducted a strict control in antenatal clinics.
Physiological edema - mild, skin pasty brush in the area, ankles and feet.As a rule, a woman they do not bring any inconvenience and do not lead to complications.
Abnormal swelling - this is a sign of preeclampsia, which occurs more frequently in the III trimester.For preeclampsia is characterized by three symptoms - the presence of edema, protein in the urine and high blood pressure (above 140/80 mmHg).With these indicators woman hospitalized in Maternity Department of pathology at the hospital for treatment.There are 4 degrees of pathological edema:
1st - in the hands and feet;
2nd - on the abdomen;
3rd - on the face;
4th - the whole body swelling.
If pregnant suffer from headaches, nausea and vomiting, fever, itchy skin - these are the symptoms of pre-eclampsia (a complication of preeclampsia).Further develop eclampsia, which is a sign of a seizure.
If you have preeclampsia complications need to seek immediate medical attention.To save the woman and the fetus can only be resorted to an emergency delivery.
to pick their own means from swelling during pregnancy is impossible.The antenatal clinic gynecologist may recommend herbal:
- reassuring (to drink 3 times a day for 1ch.l.) or usual valerian tablets;
- for improving kidney function;
- for the normalization of vascular tone.
It should be noted that the evidence-based medicine does not approve such appointments.Swelling in pregnancy remove the home folk remedies rarely possible.
Many people believe that grass is safer drugs.But this is not the case.After 1-2 included in the drug active substance whose properties (including contraindications and side effects) are well known.A grass, which may include a lot of substances that can have a negative effect on the body, no one thoroughly investigated.Yes, and allergic reactions, which are so inclined expectant mothers, has not been canceled.
Sometimes your doctor may prescribe medication formulations such as "Cystone", "Kanefron".They have a diuretic effect, appointed by the short course.In fact, the appointment of such useless.Physiological edema "treat" They do not need to appear again, but the harm from them will not.If the swelling were due to preeclampsia, the treatment is quite different ...
often appointed means to improve the utero-placental circulation - lipoic acid, "Curantil".Assigning them very controversial.Drugs are not the cheapest, but little practical value.Magne B6 can be assigned for the prevention of night cramps, which are often in pregnant women.
Of the more accessible and safe means - an infusion of dried apricots.It is recommended by doctors to take to relieve edema (overnight dried apricots pour boiling water, and in the morning to drink the infusion).
Many believe that if there were swelling, you should immediately restrict fluid intake.This view is erroneous.The volume of liquid in any case it is not necessary to cut, because the body, on the contrary, begin to accumulate more fluid, which is necessary to his birth in the case of a large loss of blood.It should only adjust the power - if necessary, to reduce salt consumption, spices, fried, smoked, pickled food.Eat more vegetables and protein foods.Foods such as celery, parsley, apples and citrus fruits are natural diuretics.More need to eat garlic and onions, they are beneficial to the circulation.
Make emphasis should be placed on the organization of the daily routine.Sleep should last for about 9 hours, it is recommended more walks in the fresh air, light exercise.Several times a day, the woman must take the knee-elbow position for 5-7 minutes.It will also have a beneficial effect on the body, decrease the pressure of the pregnant uterus on the bladder and blood vessels.
When edema on the feet of our grandmothers used cabbage leaves, plucked from the garden.They need to be cooled in the refrigerator and apply to the feet as often as you need it.It is not known if it will so fully and quickly remove the swelling of the legs during pregnancy, but the relief you get - that's for sure.
pregnant woman should monitor the daily work of the organism and all questions contact the obstetrician-gynecologist.
