How to deal with edema at low pressure

The change in the hormonal background that occurs inthe time of pregnancy in the body of a woman, affects, among other things, the force of blood pressure on the walls of blood vessels. In the first trimester, the blood pressure of the expectant mother is usually lowered, although not necessarily. This is the norm, but nevertheless there are frames beyond which low pressure represents a threat to pregnancy, the baby and the generic process. Therefore, if you are inclined to lowered pressure - be on the alert.

Causes of depression of pressure during pregnancy

As we said at the beginning of the article, the mainthe cause of hypotension during pregnancy is a change in the hormonal background. The natural decrease in blood pressure in the first trimester has a specific function, conceived by nature: in conditions of the formation of new vascular networks, this condition is more beneficial for the body. Therefore, uniquely, hypotension in the early stages is better than hypertension.

But low blood pressure can also be a symptomone of the serious diseases. For example, this figure falls with peptic ulcer. infectious diseases, allergic conditions, adrenal insufficiency or thyroid gland and other diseases. Therefore, it is important to inform your doctor that blood pressure has dropped. In addition, arterial hypotension often accompanies toxicosis in the early stages of pregnancy due to constant vomiting.

Signs of low pressure in pregnancy

Different women experience certain signs of low blood pressure, but most often they accompany each other:

  • nausea;
  • weakness;
  • drowsiness;
  • fast fatiguability;
  • dizziness;
  • darkening in the eyes;
  • noise or ringing in the ears;
  • a feeling of lack of air;
  • fainting.

Norms of pressure reduction during pregnancy

Normal arterial pressure outside of pregnancyranges from 90/60 to 140/90. For everyone it's their indicators, in which a person feels good or normal. But during pregnancy, as we have said, they can change in one direction or the other. An acceptable fluctuation is the change in blood pressure to 10%. If the pressure has fallen more, it should already be raised.

Many women believe that low blood pressurepregnancy is not dangerous, if they do not lose consciousness and can move independently. But the danger of the condition lies in the fact that at low arterial blood pressure does not circulate well to the placenta. and the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the fetus slows down. That is, the child experiences a deficiency in them, placental insufficiency develops with all that follows. And in the postpartum period, difficulties associated with low blood pressure may appear. Therefore, even if your pressure has usually been lowered, you should not allow a strong fall during the gestation period.

How to deal with low pressure in pregnancy

In no case do not resort to pharmacydrugs to increase pressure without consulting a doctor. For example, the same Eleuterococcal increases not only blood pressure, but also tone, including the uterus. Therefore, it is better to do with improvised means: sweet black tea with lemon, tomato juice, parsley greens - everyone is helped by something of his own.

Some advise to eat salty or drinkcoffee. As you know, with salty during pregnancy you need to be extremely cautious, and caffeinated foods and drinks (including coffee, teas, chocolate) should not be carried away. Therefore, the most reasonable thing is to consult a doctor about any of these recommendations.

But that's exactly what will not hurt, but will only go tothe use of a pregnant woman with hypotension - the optimal regime of the day, a sufficient balanced diet, adequate rest, walking outdoors. If you do not have contraindications, sign up for aqua aerobics or other exercises for pregnant women. But do not refuse to walk in walks. And you will notice that this really works!
