False Contractions Are Rarely Felt At 36 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
. I am 36 weeks pregnant … In fact, I rarely feel fake contractions … Fake contractions I often feel even at week 35 … I wonder why? While my legs and arms start to swell
Hello Dudeliany, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
False contractions are actually harmless and there is no specific reference when they should be felt, but if they appear they can be started since the second trimester of pregnancy and more often are found at the age of the third trimester of pregnancy.
This contraction is thought to occur to help increase the flow of the placenta inside the uterus. This contraction can also be triggered by several other factors such as:
Very active fetal movements
There is a touch on the mother's stomach
When the bladder is full
After having sex
If you believe that the contraction you are feeling is a fake contraction, don't worry and try doing things like:
Change body position
Drink or eat
Take a shower using warm water to help provide relaxation to the mother
If you are not sure, plus your gestational age is getting closer to the day of delivery, you should consult the complaint further to the obstetrician to ascertain whether the contraction is a false contraction or a labor contraction, especially if accompanied by other complaints such as water discharge- water or bleeding from the birth canal.
I hope this helps.
