I’m 33 weeks pregnant. This is my second pregnancy after cesarean. Last week, the amniotic fluid had leaked due to the effect of vaginal discharge u0026amp; have often felt heartburn, backache, back, vagina u0026amp; like someone poked his shoulder. This week feeling sick to my stomach, backache, back, vagina, tight stomach u0026amp; the caesarean scar is getting more painful u0026amp; more often it can come in an hour or so, even though you have taken heartburn painkillers, you still feel it. How about this??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In women who have a history of previous cesarean delivery, the appearance of pain in the lower abdomen during pregnancy is generally a normal thing due to excessive stretching in the area of the post-surgery. After surgery, the wound in your uterus and skin will be replaced by scar tissue that has less elasticity. Therefore, if there is a large enough strain, for example when pregnancy has entered the third trimester, it will certainly feel pain.
Pain and heartburn that starts in the lower abdomen, waist, back, to the vagina accompanied by a sensation like something is poking in the pelvis may indicate that your fetus has descended into the pelvic inlet. This condition is very normal to occur at the age of 8-9 months of pregnancy in women who have previously been pregnant (multipara). It could also be that this complaint gets worse due to false contractions (Braxton Hicks).
However, if the complaint is accompanied by a very frequent tightening sensation, the intensity is very intense, and the duration is prolonged, then you should be alert, it is feared that this indicates that your labor is coming soon. Moreover, if you have also experienced seepage of amniotic fluid.
Check your complaint directly to a gynecologist for further evaluation. Normally, labor occurs after 36 weeks of gestation or more. So, if the pregnancy is still possible to maintain, the doctor can prescribe to you several types of drugs to reduce contractions while waiting for the maturation of the fetus in your womb. However, if it is judged that childbirth will produce a better impact than maintaining a pregnancy, then preterm labor may be preferred for the safety of you and the fetus you are carrying.
At this time, you should do first complete rest (if necessary, bed rest). Don't do strenuous activities just yet, calm your mind, and wear loose and comfortable clothes. Avoid having sex first. And compress the abdominal, waist, back, and vaginal areas that are painful and heartburn using warm water.
Hope it helps ya..
