Pregnant, nausea, weight loss. Prescribed Doxinate and Enerzal. Worried

Hello Dr I am 12 weeks & days pregnant. 1st month was peaceful for me but 2nd & 3rd are nightmare. Slightest of smells provoke nausea to me, be it food or humans (I am fighting with my husband frequently over his intimacy to me to help out-ease out me). My weight dropped from 52 (1st month) to 50 (2nd month) to 48(3rd month). Doctor recommended me doxinate & enerzal. My sugar is 74 and blood pressure was 90/60. I am badly worried. Please suggest & guide. EDD is 22 may 13. - naina

Nausea at first few months of pregnancy is a common complaint .Some people may experience exaggerated symptoms. Nothing to worry. Your body is getting adopted for the new comer,that is your baby.Take frequent small meals & fresh juices. Avoid spicy foods. Take medicines as per your Doctor's prescription. Usually nausea of pregnancy will stop of its own , after 12 to 13 weeks of pregnancy. Take care.

General & Family Physician Dr. Vishnupriya Gangavarapu's  Response

I learn that you are 12 weeks pregnant and are bothered by severe nausea. Do not worry too much, as it is a common problem in pregnancy, occurring in about 90% of women. Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, generally begin to appear between 4th and 9th week, peak in the 12th week and decrease by 16th week. But, about 20-30% of women continue to have these symptoms beyond the 20th week. It is also quite common to be irritated with the surroundings and people around you when you have severe nausea. The medications that you are prescribed are a part of your treatment for nausea and vomiting. Your symptoms should subside in about 2 weeks.

Following this advice may help reduce nausea-have adequate sleep, drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, eat frequent small meals, avoid food with strong odors. If you have been taking iron tablets, discontinue and resume them in 2 weeks, as iron tablets can induce nausea. Have protein rich food like nuts in between your meals. Drinking cold beverages reduces the metallic taste in the mouth. Indulge in activities that elevate your mood.

During pregnancy, it is normal for the blood glucose levels to be on the lower side due to hemodilution. In your case, the sugar levels are in the normal range.Blood Pressure of 90/60 is considered to be normal in pregnancy, as a lot of factors cause the BP to decrease during pregnancy. To prevent excessively low BP, avoid dehydration, laydown on your side rather than on the back.
I hope this information helped you. I wish you good health.
