Opening 1 But There Has Been No Development In The Birth Canal?
Afternoon, I am pregnant and the gestational age is more than 4 days from HPL, now while my condition is open 1 tp already 3 days there is no development, and my midwife said midwife is on the left side of the birth canal, is it possible to have an induction or wait until age 41, thanks …
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. In your condition, what you need to make sure of is your first pregnancy. If it is a second, third or so on pregnancy, opening 1 which is much earlier than other deliveries is normal, and indeed cannot be used as a benchmark whether labor is really close or not. Another case if this is your first delivery. If it has been opened 1 and there has been no progress at all for 3 days, then further checks need to be done.
So what you need to do now, if this is your first pregnancy, immediately consult a gynecologist. This is because further examination needs to be done to ascertain the condition, whether the baby has dropped or not, how is the fluid in the body, is there a sign of infection and various other factors. But if this is the second pregnancy or more, may wait until the age of 41, then consult a gynecologist. Do this every week. Let your obstetrician determine whether you really need to be induced or not.
In the meantime, just take care of your health, avoid cigarette smoke, take light walks, and start preparing the equipment you want to carry if at any time there are stronger labor signs. So, hopefully answering your question.
