Dangerous If Prolonged False Contractions While 39 Weeks Pregnant?
I want to ask, now my obstetrical age is 39 weeks, and last week I often felt abdominal pain like menstruation, the pain sometimes disappeared sometimes came, when I brought the midwife he said the opening was not long, after that I often felt stomach pain sometimes if the baby’s motion feels sharp, and the stomach feels too … Is it okay, if the contractions are fake too often, lastly the word control of the midwife is told to stimulate the breast so that the baby is born fast, please explain thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. False contractions are a normal part of the course of pregnancy. A person may experience fake contractions much earlier than the time of delivery. This is not something you need to worry about, because fake contractions also function to ripen the cervix to prepare your body for labor. So there is no special treatment for the condition of false contractions, however often they are.
What you need to consider is whether the contraction is accompanied by you feel a fever, discharge smells of odor, unusual vaginal discharge, the pain is very unbearable, bleeding or other complaints that are very disturbing. If so, then there could be certain diseases or infections and you should immediately consult a gynecologist. In addition, it should also be noted, given the age of your pregnancy that is nearing labor, whether contractions become more frequent, more regular, the distribution of contractions begins to expand from the lower back and spread to all parts of the abdomen, contractions worsened by moving or walking, or followed by discharge that is suspected to be amniotic fluid, because this could be a sign that labor is very close. If this happens, may be checked again to the midwife, or directly to the obstetrician.
Then regarding breast stimulation or nipple stimulation, this method even though it looks simple and can be done by anyone, in fact should not be done without doctor's supervision. The safer advice and the higher success rate is to have sex. In most pregnant women, after having sex, the distance to delivery is no more than 1-2 days.
In essence, you don't need to worry, get enough rest, prepare everything you want to carry in a small suitcase, and have your pregnancy checked out once a week. So, hopefully answering your question.
