Gestosis during pregnancy

Previously, I never thought that during pregnancy you need to consider how much water you drank per day. And not only water, but also all the fluid that enters your body during the day. And this soup, and tea, and a tasty juicy apple. At the 38th week of pregnancy, my supervising doctor diagnosed gestosis and urgently advised me to go to the antenatal department.

What is gestosis?


Gestosis is late toxicosis, which usually occurs in the second and third trimester of pregnancy (after the 28th week). It manifests itself in the form of swelling of the hands, feet and face. And when you press your finger on the swollen skin for some time, traces remain. In me, it manifested itself as swelling in the legs.

As many doctors say, preeclampsia is cunning. The future mommy feels very good, sometimes a small swelling sometimes appears: the wedding ring has become poorly removed, and my favorite shoes are not worn on swollen legs.

And it seems to be okay, because with the kidneys, according to the test results, everything is fine, the head does not hurt, the weight is gained gradually. But the danger is that with the appearance of edema, edema also appears on the placenta on the arms, legs and face, which leads to a lack of oxygen in the baby.

How to resist preeclampsia?

Faced with this problem, I was seriously scared, because I didn’t want to go to the hospital, but the future was worrying about the baby’s health. Pregnancy is still the first, and I reacted with all responsibility to this case.

I have studied many sites on the Internet and for myself I realized that there are several forms of gestosis: dropsy of pregnant women, nephropathy and pre-eclampsia, eclampsia. My preeclampsia belongs to the first form of complications, so there was no need to take coordinated measures for its treatment.

After writing a few useful prescriptions, I consulted a doctor, and later applied them to myself.

Diuretic teas are excellent decongestants. In the nearest pharmacy, I purchased lingonberry leaves, which are well removed fluid from the body. It is very easy to prepare the broth: 2-3 teaspoons of the leaves of the cranberries are poured with 2-3 cups of boiling water, after which the mixture should be boiled for a couple of minutes.

Another effective way to combat swelling is massage. Fortunately, I have a caring husband. I understood that the most with a big belly, it is not easy to reach the swollen legs. And he took this responsible matter on himself.

Later I tried to drink less liquid at night, I ate a lot of vegetables and fruits, did not lean on sweet and salty, and also tried to walk more and not sit still.

That’s how I struggled with preeclampsia during pregnancy. Have any of you encountered the same problems? And how did you cope with this ailment?
