Isn’t pregnancy the best time of a woman’s life, with all the pampering and indulgence she receives from her partner and family? Well, though most women carry their pregnancy without any problem, some do experience certain health issues. Pregnancy related issues can occur to anyone, irrespective of caste and creed, even royalty is not spared. Her Royal Highness, Kate Middleton struggled with a severe form of morning sickness. She overcame it and is now a proud mother of three beautiful children. Yes, pregnancy related health issues can be resolved with right treatment. 

Common health troubles during pregnancy

Nausea: Also known as ‘morning sickness’, nausea can actually occur at any time of the day. If the vomiting becomes severe, it may lead to dehydration.

Indigestion & constipation: Indigestion occurs in 80% of women during pregnancy. Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can cause constipation. Since constipation can cause hard, lumpy stools and straining, it may cause piles, which will in turn lead to discomfort and pain.

Backache: Another common problem during pregnancy, backache occurs when the body’s ligaments become softer as they stretch to prepare for labour. This strains the lower back and pelvic areas, which causes backache. The extra weight of your uterus and the increasing size of the hollow in your lower back also add to the problem. 

Changes in hair and skin:  Hair fall is common during pregnancy. It occurs due to decreased levels of oestrogen. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can also make the skin darker.

Mood swings: Did you know that hormones affect your emotions too? This is the cause of ante-natal depression when you feel sad all the time for weeks or months during your pregnancy.  You may experience irritability, lack of concentration and restlessness. You may also feel anxious.

Other problems during pregnancy may include cramps, swelling, high blood pressure, anaemia and urinary tract infection.
