Abdominal Shape Is Not Flat And Not Round When Sleeping On Her Back At 39 Weeks Gestation?
Hallo..I was pregnant 39 weeks if I sleep on my back, my stomach is not flat and not round .. while the baby’s position should be facing the back, but it feels like I’m continuing to follow the direction of my sleep … Is that reasonable ??
Hello Eka, Thank you for the question.
Under normal conditions, babies can indeed move freely in the womb. Because it is protected by enough amniotic water, the baby can move freely. The position of the baby can also vary, starting from the head below or above, sideways left or right, or horizontally (horizontal), especially in the first and second trimester of pregnancy. Babies can move and change positions in the uterus. However, as the baby ages, the space for movement will be increasingly limited and usually when reaching the third trimester of pregnancy, the baby's movement will be more limited. In general, the baby's head position will be below when entering the age of 32-34 weeks of pregnancy. There is nothing you need to worry about the position of the baby in the womb at this time even though the baby's position can determine the method of labor later. Please keep monitoring your fetal movements. Please maintain good health by taking adequate rest for 7-9 hours every day, consuming nutritious food, increasing consumption of water, managing stress well.
If you feel reduced fetal movement, this condition needs to be aware of so you are advised to immediately see your obstetrician for further examination and treatment.
Please also recognize signs of childbirth such as abdominal contractions that become more frequent and stronger, discharge of lenders mixed with blood, or rupture of amniotic fluid. If the birth sign appears, please visit your nearest hospital immediately.
Hopefully this information helps you.
