What causes nausea and headaches during early pregnancy?
It is normal.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
It is normal to have nausea and headache during early pregnancy.
Normally, nausea subsides at the end of the first trimester.
Sometimes, in some women as the uterus grows and enlarges in size, it puts pressure on the stomach and other organs, leading to acidity and nausea again.
Simple remedies will help you -
1. Eat home made, fresh, bland food. Avoid spicy, oily , greasy, fried or stale food. Avoid eating outside.
2. Instead of 2 big meals, have 5 - 6 spaced out meals.
3. Take lots of water, buttermilk, coconut water, nimbu pani etc,
4. You can take Sinate - OD tablet, this is needed just once a day, early in the morning, it will help your nausea.
5. You can take Pantop - D tablet twice a day to combat the acidity.
6. Before sleeping, take a glass of chilled milk at night.
7. Sleep with pillows propping up your head at night.
8. After any meal, avoid lying down or sleeping for atleast 2 hours.
9. Avoid stress or worrying, as it compounds the acidity.
10. You can add simple items like lemon,cinnamom, ketchup to your food instead of chillies and spices to alter the taste and improve your nausea.
