A lot of people are switching from regular water to sparkling water, which is considered to be more of a fad. Sparkling water is just carbonated plain water. It is equally hydrating, but with a ‘kick’! The bubbles in the water tantalise taste buds. But there have been too many controversies surrounding the consumption of sparkling water. Tooth enamel erosion, calcium deficiency and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are said to be some of the harmful effects of consuming sparkling water. But there has not been any scientific study to back this up.
Most of the rumours surrounding sparkling water arise from the carbonated factor. Carbonation leads to formation of carbonic acid in the water making sparkling water slightly acidic in nature. In addition if the water has sodium bicarbonate or any other chemical added to it for slight salty taste it increases the sodium content of the water, which is not good for people suffering from high blood pressure. There are other harmful ingredients like sugar, preservatives, phosphoric acid etc. in other carbonated drinks, which mightn’t be present in Sparkling water et all.
Although sparkling water has not been found to be unhealthy, but we should remember acid in the sparkling water erodes teeth enamel and gas leads to IBS. There are a few other things one must remember before replacing regular water with sparkling water:
- Stomach problems: Though this issue is extremely subjective, affecting some and not all. Sparkling water just has extra air in it. This air can lead to excessive flatulence, burping and bloating in the abdomen for some. However, it will not affect everyone equally.
- Stealthy sugar and sodium: Bottled soda water and tonic water are some types of sparkling water. These are not healthy. Tonic water contains sodium and sugar. If you are observing your sodium intake, then do not drink sparkling water. However, those who do intensive athletic activities, they may opt for sparkling water. You lose electrolytes through sweat. Sparkling water can provide quick hydration.
- Flavours: People who invest in carbonators, get small little flavouring packets. It is advised, for your well-being, not to use these to flavour the water. They are not always healthy as they contain extra calories and sugar. Consuming soda and sparkling water won’t make much of a difference then. Instead of the packets, you can use cucumber, mint leaves, lime and lemon, or any other fruit, to flavour your water. It adds no extra calories and is actually good for you!
You can, indeed, safely replace regular water with sparkling water. It is a fun way to stay hydrated!
गर्भावस्था के पहले तीन महीनों आपके बच्चे के विकास में सबसे महत्वपूर्ण चरण है। अपनी गर्भावस्था के दौरान, लेकिन विशेष रूप से पहले तीन महीनों के दौरान, शराब, दवाओं और दवाओं का उपयोग करने के बारे में सावधान रहें।
इसके अलावा, यदि आपने अपनी गर्भावस्था में काम करने की योजना बनाई है, तो आपको अपने कार्यस्थल का विश्लेषण करने के लिए कुछ समय निकालना होगा। आपको उन गतिविधियों का आकलन करना चाहिए जिन्हें आप दैनिक आधार पर शामिल करने जा रहे हैं, यह निर्धारित करने के लिए कि क्या कोई संभावित ख़तरे हैं जो आपके या आपके बच्चे के लिए हानिकारक हो सकते हैं।
निम्नलिखित जानकारी उन पदार्थों की रूपरेखा देती हैं जिन्हें गर्भावस्था के दौरान विशेष सावधानी बरतने की आवश्यकता होती है:
1. गर्भावस्था में कार्य संबंधी ख़तरे: यदि आपकी नौकरी या पर्यावरण के बारे में कोई चिंताएँ हैं, तो आपको अपने डॉक्टर से उन पर चर्चा करनी चाहिए ताकि वह आपको सलाह दे सकते हैं कि नौकरी जारी रखे या नहीं। यदि आपका काम का पर्यावरण उपयुक्त नहीं है, या यदि काम के दौरान किसी भी प्रकार के जोखिम में हो, अपने नियोक्ता से पूछें कि जब आप गर्भवती हो तो उस समय के लिए आपको वैकल्पिक नौकरी में स्थानांतरित कर सकते हैं।
त्वरित कार्यस्थल सुरक्षा जांच:
- क्या रसायन या तेल की कोई भागीदारी है?
- क्या आप जानवरों के साथ मिलकर काम करते हैं?
- क्या आपके काम में कोई अत्यधिक शारीरिक गतिविधि है?
- क्या विषाक्त अपशिष्ट और आयनियोजन विकिरणों का कोई जोखिम है?
2. लंबी अवधि के लिए खुद को ज़्यादा गरम न रखें: गर्भावस्था में आपके शरीर को गर्म करने से आपके बच्चे को विशेष रूप से पहले त्रैमासिक में हानिकारक हो सकता है, हालांकि कभी-कभी लंबे समय तक गर्म स्नान ठीक है, लेकिन नियमित आधार पर लंबे स्नान या सौना आपके पेट के ऊष्मायन के कारण हो सकता है और आपके बच्चे के विकास में महत्वपूर्ण गतिविधियों को बाधित कर सकता है।
3. यात्रा: असल में, आपकी गर्भावस्था के दौरान यात्रा में कोई समस्या नहीं होती है मुख्य बात जो विचार में आती है वह है, जब आप यात्रा के दौरान बिल्कुल भी नहीं हिलते हैं और सिर्फ दृढ़ता से बैठते हैं। चरण के दौरान निम्नलिखित बिंदुओं को ध्यान में रखा जाना चाहिए:
- सातवें महीने के बाद गर्भावस्था में विमान से यात्रा न करें।
- कार या ट्रेन द्वारा लंबी दूरी से बचें लंबी अवधि के लिए किसी स्थिति में प्रतिबंधित न होने का प्रयास करें।
- यदि आपको अंतरराष्ट्रीय स्तर पर यात्रा करना है, तो अपने डॉक्टर से इसके बारे में बात करें।
- 2 या 3 पहिया वाहन से यात्रा करना उचित नहीं है।
- आरामदायक जूते पहनें
4. गर्भावस्था में व्यायाम: यदि आपके पास एक सामान्य और सीधी गर्भावस्था है, तो व्यायाम केवल सुरक्षित ही नहीं बल्कि अनुशंसित है। बस किसी भी चिकित्सा चिंताओं के लिए पहले अपने चिकित्सक के साथ चर्चा कर लें।
नियमित शारीरिक गतिविधि अत्यधिक वजन को रोकने में मदद करती है और माता के रक्त शर्करा के स्तर, जिससे एक मुश्किल जन्म की संभावना बढ़ सकती है, को बढ़ने से रोकती है।
5. गर्भावस्था में भोजन: गर्भावस्था आंशिक रूप से आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को दबा देती है, जिससे आप खाना-संबंधी बीमारियों जैसे लिस्टरियोसिस और साल्मोनेला के प्रति अधिक संवेदनशील हो सकते हैं। हालांकि ऐसी बीमारियों से गर्भपात और समय से पहले श्रम जैसी जटिलताओं का सामना नहीं करना पड़ता है। लेकिन इसके परिणामस्वरूप उल्टी या दस्त आपके बच्चे की जरूरतों के पोषक तत्वों को प्राप्त करना कठिन बना सकते हैं।
खाद्य सुरक्षा चेकलिस्ट:
- सभी मांस, मुर्गी और मछली को अच्छी तरह से पकाना।
- जांच लें कि मांस खाना पकाने से पहले अच्छी तरह से डीफ़्रॉस्ट है या नहीं।
- सिर्फ पेस्टाइज्ड डेयरी उत्पादों को खाएं।
- संसाधित डेली-मीट और सॉफ्ट चीज से बचें।
- कैफीन या संबंधित उत्पादों को न लें
- शराब और तंबाकू के सेवन से बचें

A blood clot (also called a thrombosis) is a mass or clump of blood that forms when blood changes from a liquid to a solid.
The body normally makes blood clots to stop the bleeding after a scrape or cut. But sometimes blood clots can partly or completely block the flow of blood in a blood vessel, like a vein or artery. This can cause damage to body organs and even death.
Most women with blood clotting conditions have healthy pregnancies. But these conditions may cause problems for some pregnant women. In severe cases, they can cause death for both mom and baby. But testing and treatment can help save both you and your baby.
If you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant and have had problems with blood clots in the past, tell your health care provider at a preconception checkup (before pregnancy) or at your first prenatal care checkup. Also tell your provider if someone in your family (your parent or a brother or sister) has had problems with blood clots. This means the condition may run in your family.
What problems can blood clots cause during pregnancy?
If you have a blood clot or a kind of thrombophilia called antiphospholipid syndrome (also called APS), you may be more likely to have complications that can affect your health and your baby’s health, including:
- Blood clots in the placenta. The placenta grows in your uterus (womb) and supplies the baby with food and oxygen through the umbilical cord. A blood clot in the placenta can stop blood flow to your baby and harm your baby.
- Heart attack. This usually happens when a blood clot blocks blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Without blood and oxygen, the heart can’t pump blood well, and the affected heart muscle can die. A heart attack can lead to lasting heart damage or death.
- Intauterine growth restriction (also called IUGR). This is when your baby grows poorly in the womb.
- Miscarriage. A miscarriage is when a baby dies in the womb before 20 weeks of pregnancy.
- Placental insufficiency. This is when the placenta doesn’t work as well as it should so your baby gets less food and oxygen.
- Preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a condition that can happen after the 20th week of pregnancy or right after pregnancy. It’s when a pregnant woman has high blood pressure and signs that some of her organs, like her kidneys and liver, may not be working properly. Some of these signs include having protein in the urine, changes in vision, and severe headache.
- Premature birth. This is when your baby is born before 37 weeks of pregnancy.
- Pulmonary embolism (also called PE). An embolism is a blood clot that moves from where it formed to another place in the body. When the clot moves to a lung, it’s a PE. PE can cause low oxygen levels in your blood and damage your body organs. It’s an emergency and a leading cause of death during pregnancy. Signs and symptoms of PE may include:
- Trouble breathing
- Fast or irregular heartbeat
- Chest pain
- Feeling anxious
- Coughing up blood
- Stillbirth. This is when a baby dies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
- Stroke. This happens when a blood clot blocks a blood vessel that brings blood to the brain, or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts open. Pregnancy and childbirth cause strokes in about 8 in 100,000 women. Stroke can cause lasting damage to the body or death.
- Thrombosis. This happens when a blood clot forms in a blood vessel and blocks blood flow. It most often happens in the deep veins of the legs but can be in other places of the body:
How are these conditions treated?
Your provider may use tests like ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (also called MRI) to find out if you have a blot clot or clotting conditions. Ultrasound uses sound waves and a computer screen to show a picture of your baby inside the womb. MRI is a medical test that makes a detailed picture of the inside of your body. These tests are painless and safe for you and your baby.
If you are pregnant and have a clotting condition, you may need to go for prenatal care checkups more often than women who don’t have these blood clot conditions. At these visits, your provider checks your blood pressure and can use other tests, like blood tests, to monitor your health.
Your gynaecologist also checks your baby’s health in the womb using tests like:
- Ultrasound to check your baby’s growth and development. She may use a special kind of ultrasound called Doppler to check your baby’s blood flow in the umbilical artery, a blood vessel in the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord connects your baby to the placenta. It carries food and oxygen from the placenta to the baby.
- Fetal heart rate monitoring (also called a nonstress test or NST). This test checks your baby’s heart rate in the womb and sees how the heart rate changes when your baby moves. Your provider uses this test to make sure your baby’s getting enough oxygen.
A blood clot occurs when your body sends cells, called platelets, to interrupt the stream of blood. Typically, this happens when you have a cut, to keep the damage from draining consistently. During pregnancy, your blood will probably cluster as a defense mechanism against losing an excess amount of blood during the process.
Signs and Symptoms
Women have a tendency to be more sensitive and risk-prone of potential difficulties while they are pregnant. Despite the fact that blood clots are far-fetched, there are a couple of signs that can demonstrate the possibility of a blood clot. These include:
- Swelling or pain in one leg
- Pain that increases when you walk
- Veins that look bigger or more swollen than usual
Different components that can additionally raise your odds of growing profound vein related blood clots in pregnancy include:
- Being thirty-five or older while pregnant
- Pre-pregnancy blood clots outside of pregnancy
- Being overweight
- Having a cesarean conveyance (C-section).
However, there are certain solutions to every problem. In order to get rid of blood clots during pregnancy or prevent them from happening, these are the possible solutions:
- Continue moving: In case that you are overweight and inactive, it will affect your blood-stream and increase your risk for profound vein clots in pregnancy. So, remain active and keep up a healthy weight. If you must be on bed rest because of a damage or inconvenience in your pregnancy, your specialist may endorse blood thinners as a careful step.
- Get up during travel: Flying alone is a risk for clots; so pregnant women need to be very careful about that. In case that you need to fly, get up and move around consistently and do a lower leg exercise while you sit. Do a similar thing in case you go for a long journey or have to travel fast.
- Wear pressure tights: Since they enhance the flow and lessen swelling in the legs, pressure tights can bring down your danger of profound clots in pregnancy.
- Drink loads of water: Remaining hydrated during pregnancy forestalls clots by keeping the blood from getting too thick.
The reason pregnant women need to be aware of the connection amongst pregnancy and clot risks is that an untreated clot can possibly break free and go through the circulatory system. The fear is that it will move to the heart or lungs and cause a pneumonic embolism, which can lead to death. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Do you have Mood swings before periods?
It is possible that like millions of women worldwide, you could also be suffering from PMS or Premenstrual Syndrome.
PMS is diagnosed if a woman persistently (more than six months) seems to be suffering from a group of symptoms. Mood swings, irritability, feeling of loss of control, bloating, headaches, breast pain etc are part of the symptoms.
These symptoms appear a week or ten days before the onset of periods and subside when the menstrual bleeding starts. The first two weeks from the onset of periods are relatively easier and symptom-free.
7 tips to reduce your mood swings:
1) Well, the first thing to do is to tackle the situation head on rather than feeling helpless over the whole situation. Stop blaming other people in your life like your husband, brother, children or mother-in -law for your mood swings.
Accept that this situation happens to many other women like you and you are not alone.
2) Try practicing relaxation techniques like Meditation, Yoga, deep Breathing exercises and Pranayam. It helps you give greater insight, to calm down and reduce the extent of swings.
3) Chamomile tea and Supplements contain Evening Primrose oil which is available over the counter may help to soothe frayed nerves.
4) Eat a healthy diet and avoid high salt and sugar containing foods. Include fresh fruits and salads in your diet. Your diet should contain enough vitamin B,D, and calcium. If you are not sure about the diet, you could take supplements for a few days and see if it makes a difference.
5) Exercise regularly, even if it is for 20 min a day. Get outdoors and try to get the benefits of early morning sunshine.
6) Get enough sleep and listen to the signals your body sends you about fatigue and rest. Allow your body to rejuvenate and renew.
7)If nothing works and your mood swings threaten to upset your social or personal lifestyle, please consult your gynecologist who may want to prescribe pills to tackle the whole situation. Anti-anxiety drugs sometimes help to correct the balance of a chemical called serotonin.
