Is There A First Opening At 37 Weeks’ Gestation?
37 weeks’ gestation, is there a first opening?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, in the final weeks of pregnancy when approaching labor, the cervix or cervix will become increasingly soft and thin and will eventually experience opening. Opening of 1 to 2 cm can occur several weeks before labor actually occurs. The cervix will not open larger unless labor contractions (contractions that get stronger, more regular, and more often) have begun to occur. Generally in the first pregnancy, the opening of the cervix will only occur when labor contractions have begun, but the opening 1-2 cm that occurs before labor contractions begin (even a few weeks before the time of labor) is also a normal thing to happen.
If at 37 weeks of pregnancy you have experienced a 1 cm opening, then this is normal. If you experience a rupture of the membranes or your membranes leak (seep) before you experience labor contractions, you feel your baby's movements diminish, there is very much blood coming from your vagina, or you feel your stomach very tense and hard (contractions occur continuously and do not disappear arise), immediately go to the hospital.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
