The transition from not being pregnant to becoming pregnant is certainly a big process for most women.
Physical changes from previously not pregnant to pregnancy often bring significant changes. Of the many changes, generally mood swings and everything that is experienced by pregnant women tends to lead to things that are quite annoying.
It is different before you became pregnant, during pregnancy you may experience several things and make your body feel more sensitive than usual. This is generally a normal condition and is experienced by most pregnant women around the world. This condition is generally influenced by hormonal fluctuations in the body of a pregnant woman which makes her mood and response to something more sensitive.
Your body during pregnancy will try to adjust its condition to the presence of your little one in your uterus. Generally, this condition causes your body to experience several pregnancy complaints as part of its adjustment process.
Some signs such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness and so on may be a pregnancy complaint experienced by a woman. It’s just that, there’s no need to worry when you experience this condition. Because in general, this does not require treatment by a doctor, but will heal or disappear on its own.
Conditions of pregnancy complaints, such as nausea and vomiting, generally make pregnant women lazy to eat or even not excited when eating food. It’s just that eating in this case is the only nutrient and nutrient intake for your body. The baby in your womb will only grow and develop if they get the nutrition and nutrients they need. When you refuse to eat, this condition means that you are blocking the intake of nutrients needed by your little one.
For this reason, you should try to keep your body getting good nutrition and nutrition. This is of course done to support the growth and development of the baby in your womb so that it can run well.
Well, talking about pregnancy complaints. Apart from some of the complaints above, generally the body of pregnant women is also susceptible to disease attacks. This is because the condition of the immune system tends to be more vulnerable and fragile during pregnancy.
Lack of vigilance in maintaining hygiene or health will probably make disease easier to attack in pregnant women. Especially for those who have a history of asthma, less slick conditions or attention to maintaining health and avoiding the body from allergen sources will make their bodies more susceptible to asthma. So what is asthma? Check it out below.
What Is Asthma?
Asthma conditions are generally a disease that is most often experienced by many people. This condition makes the sufferer find it difficult to breathe because the lungs are disturbed.
This disease condition is a long-term or chronic type of disease of the respiratory tract characterized by inflammation or narrowing of the respiratory tract. In the end, this condition will cause the breath to feel more tight when the asthmatic patient wants to breathe.
However, in addition to signs of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, other signs that can also be felt by asthmatics include chest pain, coughing or even wheezing in certain conditions that may be experienced by people with asthma.
This disease is generally a relapse. Worse, the recurrence can occur anytime and anywhere so it is difficult to predict. In addition, there are also asthma that recur as part of an allergen reaction. People who have an allergic reaction to an object may experience asthma as part of the allergic reaction.
The types of allergens that can cause this condition to occur include pollen, cold air, air pollutants, road dust, motor vehicle / car fumes and many more.
The Dangers of Asthma in Pregnant Women
Asthma is not a health condition that can be underestimated, especially if this condition occurs in pregnant women. Pregnant women who experience asthma should get help immediately, because otherwise the impact will be quite dangerous, both for the health of the mother and the safety of the baby in the womb. The effects of the dangers of asthma for pregnant women include:
If the mother experiences shortness of breath or difficulty breathing air properly, this will automatically make the mother experience lack of oxygen. Worse, in this case it is not only the mother who experiences a frightening impact. But also the same thing will be experienced by the fetus or baby in the womb. For that, you should immediately overcome this condition so that the impact is not worse.
Stunted Fetal Growth
Fetal growth will be able to run well as long as everything it needs is met properly, including oxygen. Lack of oxygen or obstruction of air circulation experienced by pregnant women will hamper the baby’s development. As a result, this condition will possibly trigger premature birth in the baby and even the possibility of being born with a low weight will be quite worrying.
Making Morning Sickness worse
Shortness of breath that arises from asthma symptoms may make pregnant women feel more nauseous. Because basically, shortness of breath itself is accompanied by a feeling of nausea. Conditions like this if you do not immediately get the right treatment will probably make you even more troublesome.
Can Pregnant Women Use Inhalers?
Well, one way to deal with asthma conditions experienced by many people is to take advantage of the use of inhalers. There are currently two types of inhalers available, namely inhalers that are used to treat asthma and relieve shortness of breath. This tool is generally a type of shortness of breath reliever during asthma that looks like a suction tube.
Meanwhile, the next type is the type of preventive inhaler or inhaler inhaler which is used to loosen the respiratory tract (nose) by inhaling the aromatherapy contained therein.
It’s just that, the question here is whether pregnant women can use these inhalers?
A new study shows, babies born to mothers who during pregnancy use inhalers to treat asthma (glucocorticoids inhalers), are at risk of experiencing endocrine disorders and metaolism.
This research conducted in Danish Birth Cohort to more than 65,000 pairs of children and mothers from the beginning of pregnancy until the little one enters the age of children. About 94% of these people do not have asthma during pregnancy. Meanwhile, as many as 6% were diagnosed with a history of asthma. Meanwhile, the average age of children is around 6 years, with an age range of 3.5 to 9 years.
Use of type inhalers glucocorticoids inhalers during pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk of disease in children, except for the presence of endocrine and metabolic disorders.
It’s just that, the type of glucocorticoids inhaler is an asthma solution that is recommended to be used during pregnancy. Although research has found an association between inhaler use and certain disorders. It’s just that, it doesn’t show cause and effect.
So basically, looking at the conditions is quite confusing. Pregnant women are advised to consult their doctor first when they want to use the type of asthma medication that will be consumed or used during pregnancy. This of course aims to avoid risks or t
hings that are not desirable to occur from this condition.
