觸怒「胎神」致小產?
懷孕是開心事,知道的一刻實在難掩興奮的心情,最想立即將喜悅與親朋好友分享,但老人家說懷孕未滿三個月是「不能說的秘密」,否則會觸怒「胎神」,嚴重更會引致流產!所以孕婦都約定俗成在懷孕初期守口如瓶,以免胎兒「小器」。
從中醫角度來說,懷孕首三個月屬於胎兒不穩定期,亦是流產的高危時期,流產不代表孕婦做錯了甚麼,根據統計,每十個孕婦就會有一至兩個流產,很多流產都在懷孕首三個月發生,多數原因是胎兒生長異常的自然淘汰,所以三個月後才報喜其實有醫學原因,讓一切穩定下來後才公告天下,以免長輩們空歡喜一場。
懷孕初期,孕婦身體剛開始適應孕育胎兒,會出現「害喜」情況如孕吐、頭暈、暈車、噁心等,都屬於正常的生理現象,想紓緩不適,建議少吃多餐,噁心作吐時可以飲用檸檬、紫蘇葉、陳皮的飲品,檸檬的酸味清新開胃,更有安胎止嘔的功效,加上薑片更能和胃。如果症狀嚴重,宜找相熟醫生或註冊中醫師診治。
紫蘇葉酸柑水

做法:材料洗淨,酸柑切半挑走核。鍋中加入適量水,加入紫蘇葉以武火煮滾約5-10分鐘至出味,倒入杯中,加入酸柑及紅糖即成。
Angry ‘God of Pregnancy’ can cause miscarriage?
Getting pregnant is happy news and many want to share the news with family and friends. Older people say it is taboo to announce pregnancy before first trimester is over or you will anger the ‘God of Pregnancy’ and even lead to miscarriage! So most pregnant ladies keep the tradition and keep the secret well for the first three months.
From Chinese medicine perspective, the first three months of pregnancy is still unstable and chance of miscarriage is higher. Miscarrying does not mean the pregnant mother had done anything wrong. Based on statistics, there are 1-2 miscarriages for every 10 pregnancies and most happen within the first three months due to irregular growth of the fetus and miscarriage is a natural process as a result. Waiting three months to announce has medical reasons as that is when the pregnancy is stable and your elders will not celebrate prematurely.

During early pregnancy, the mother is still adjusting and will experience negative things like vomiting, dizziness, motion sickness, etc. All are normal symptoms and to alleviate them, try eating less every meal and have more meals. When you feel nauseous, try having drinks with lemon, perilla leaf, or dried citrus peel. The sourness of lemon can be refreshing and stimulates appetite, and can also stabilize pregnancy and relieve vomiting. Add some ginger slices to warm the stomach. For more serious conditions, we suggest seeking professional medical opinion.
