Is It Dangerous To Go Through A Bumpy Road During A Young Pregnancy?
Good morning .. I want to ask .. I have only been pregnant for a week .. Then I have to go to work in a village .. The village is very damaged and rocky roads .. Automatically my stomach is shaking .. Will it endanger my womb? .. Thanks
Thank you for the question.
The first trimester of pregnancy (1-3 months) is the most vulnerable gestational age for you to overact. Because at this age, excessive shaking, including due to driving on damaged and rocky roads, can trigger uterine muscle contractions. This uterine muscle contraction, if mild in nature, may only make your stomach feel cramped to the waist, without any other annoying complaints. However, if the contractions are very intense, then it is not impossible you will experience a miscarriage. Your risk of miscarriage will be greater if:
You have a history of miscarriage or premature labor in a previous pregnancy
You have a history of recurrent spots in your current pregnancy
You have an abnormal cervical or uterine shape
You have a chronic disease that is not controlled during pregnancy, such as hypertension, heart problems, or diabetes
You have an infection during pregnancy, which spreads to the uterus
Your fetus has certain genetic disorders, and many other factors
Without checking directly your condition, of course it is not our authority to declare whether or not you are traveling under these conditions. Therefore, you should first check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician, yes. Safer, you only go when indeed the doctor said it was safe for you to do so. If not, postpone or prevent your departure first.
Hope this helps ...
