Pregnancy in itself is a wonderful time, but because of its duration, each future mommy falls into demi-season: a period in which the probability of catching an acute respiratory disease increases.
Since the embryo is a foreign body (sorry for the roughness of speech), for successful pregnancy and not rejecting it by our body during pregnancy, Mommy’s immunity is reduced. Accordingly, in addition to the baby, you can easily pick up unnecessary problems.
In general, it is believed that due to the placental barrier, the risk of infecting the baby is minimal, but again, in the case of a normal pregnancy. Thus, with the threat of detachment of the ovum or placenta, while smoking, the likelihood of intrauterine infection increases.
The term matters
The gestational age at which the disease occurred also determines the outcome of the disease. It is believed that in the case of acute respiratory infections for a period of up to 4 weeks there is a high risk of losing pregnancy, from 4 to 12 weeks there is already a risk of further development of a baby with disabilities.
After 12 weeks, due to the fact that all vital organs are formed, the risk of such horrors is already minimal, but again, no one 100% can exclude intrauterine infection.
Of course, you can get sick at any time without any consequences for the baby, and you should not panic if the situation has already happened.
What to do
Since pregnancy does not involve throwing tons of pills and drugs, you need to turn to the reserves of your own body and safely take a hospital even with the slightest signs of an acute respiratory disease. Fortunately, now doctors go to meet expectant mothers and easily sign sick leave.
So, rest … In order to cleanse the body and help it fight against acute respiratory infections, you need plenty of drink. It can be cranberry juice, cranberries, various dried fruit compotes. By the way, lingonberry has an excellent diuretic effect, accelerating metabolic processes, eliminating possible edema.
If necessary, the use of drugs, you still need to follow only the instructions of the doctor and do not self-medicate.
It is a very important aspect of the life of a pregnant woman. After all, better to be safe.
I remember when I just got pregnant, we had a brutal flu, and ORZ compared to it was just fun. I used to smear myself and nowhere (now there are a lot of such ointments for different places), I just drank a lot, took vitamins, walked (where there are fewer people, I have a park near my house), ventilated the rooms.
And then there is a great way to disinfect the air in the rooms. Of course, I do not promise the effect of quartz treatment, but I survived that fierce winter thanks to him without any signs of ARI and ARVI.
We take a whole orange and weathe it with chopsticks with carnations. It turns out a cute hedgehog, from which the juice gradually evaporates and, together with the clove, remarkably aromatizes the air, killing microorganisms.
Such a hedgehog can stand for a long time, as long as nobody eats it. Once I came to work in the morning, I found cloves and orange skins neatly folded in a pile on a table … As it turned out later, the boss simply lingered at work the day before and wanted to have a bite.
I wish you all unlimited health!
