What to do when your pregnant wife is sweating?
Sweating is a normal physiological response in pregnant women, as the body’s metabolism and hormonal changes can increase the body’s core temperature. Some women may experience increased sweating during pregnancy, particularly during the first trimester. This is due to hormonal changes that cause increased blood flow to the skin.
In general, sweating in pregnant women is caused by increased estrogen in pregnant women, leading to hyperreactive adrenal function, causing strong sweat secretion. Pregnant women also have increased basal metabolic rate during pregnancy, increased blood flow to the skin, and thus sweating more.
During sweating, metabolic wastes such as sodium chloride, potassium chloride, urea, and lactic acid in pregnant women are excreted. Therefore, hyperhidrosis during pregnancy is a protective physiological response that is good for your health.
The following methods can make your wife feel refreshed!
1. Prepare cooling supplies
Prepare a small water spray for your wife, so she can use it when she feels hot.
2. Can’t be too cold
The indoor temperature is best kept at around 25 °C, and the outdoor temperature can only be about 5 °C difference.
3. Diet adjustment
To ensure adequate nutrition, you can prepare your wife with light but nutritious foods such as meat, eggs, beans, vegetables and some seasonal fruits.
However, if the sweating phenomenon is particularly serious, it is necessary to go to the hospital for examination.
