It’s Been An Opening 2 Since 37 Weeks Pregnant But The Opening Has Not Increased To 38 Weeks Of Gestation?
Good evening, I am I am 23 years old, now I am pregnant with a child 3. Well, this is like a story, when last Sunday I felt my waist + intense mules and I checked that there was already an opening 2 and at 37 weeks gestational age 3 days, until now I only feel the stomach tight and just the waist that has not come out of blood mucus or amniotic fluid is now my pregnancy age 38 weeks 2 days. How is that? Do I need to check myself at the hospital, or is it true that if the opening is the former first child with the second problem because I was the first child induction and the second is not? Please the information, Thank you
Thank you for the question.
After delivery, the portion of the cervix will close immediately, so it will not cause the opening to last until you are pregnant with the next child. As for low back pain, heartburn, and tight stomach that you feel can be part of the signs of labor, but it can also be just a sign of fake contractions. Usually, if this complaint is part of a sign of labor, the opening will increase significantly, accompanied by the release of blood mucus and amniotic fluid from your genitals. But indeed, in some cases, uterine openings may also not increase significantly, and other signs of labor do not appear even though it is near or even past the HPL (day of birth forecast). Not yet known exactly what affects this difference.
With regard to your condition, if your back pain, heartburn, and tightness in your stomach is very intense, unbearable, and appears very often, you should immediately consult your doctor or obstetrician, yes. In addition to carrying out an internal examination to check the opening of the uterus You, the doctor will generally also conduct a supporting examination, such as monitoring the fetal heart rate, fetal movements, your uterine contractions, your vital signs, and many other health indicators. That way it can be decided, is it enough to wait for the birth mark to appear on its own, or to induce labor, even cesarean section.
For now, don't panic yet. Compress the stomach and waist area that you are not comfortable with warm water, do not carelessly sorted. Drink and eat enough for your energy. Regulate your breath well, relax yourself like walking a lot, doing pregnancy exercises, or meditating. Don't push until it's been recommended by your doctor.
Hope this helps ...
