1st Opening At 38 Weeks Of Gestation?
I want to ask … my pregnancy is 38 weeks, I checked the opening by my doctor to find out the position of the baby’s head … now the doctor said it was opening 1 … but I came home … but I have arrived this afternoon there are still spots … now what if that’s the case, there are still spots until this afternoon … and may not if it’s already opening 1 … can I have sex with my husband to speed up the contraction process?
Normal gestational age ranges from 38-42 weeks. From the situation you are experiencing, 38 weeks of gestation is a sufficient gestational age. 38 weeks of gestation may be followed by early signs of labor, such as more frequent abdominal tenderness, bleeding from the vagina, or an opening has begun.
Opening 1 at 38 weeks is a common thing to happen. Likewise with blood spots or mucus that comes out of the birth canal. If you want to have sex, then you can do it. But it is recommended that sperm be removed outside the vagina because in some instances sperm can cause stimulation or contractions in pregnancy. having sex is not a definite guarantee for a quick labor.
therefore, you can wait for the opening process to happen by itself. The opening tends to take longer in the first pregnancy. Re-check with a gynecologist if mules is getting more frequent.
