Hello Ms. Seriandani! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The current gestational age of the mother is already in labor. Labor begins when there is an opening in the cervix. Childbirth is only said to be active if it has opened 4 or more. To wait from opening 1 to opening 4 at the first delivery can take up to 2 days. In the second and subsequent deliveries, the time required can be up to 24 hours. It is better for you to increase the number of ways to speed up the opening and descent of the baby. Eat as usual so that you have enough strength to strain and your uterus has enough nutrients to contract. Don't reduce your food. If you are sick, eat a little, but often. Also watch for contractions (or tightness) in your uterus. Record the time of contraction and note how many seconds the contraction occurs. If the contractions are more frequent (more than 3 times in 10 minutes) and the longer (40 seconds or more each contraction), labor will be closer. Pay attention if there is already a strong urge to chill as you want to defecate. Come to the hospital immediately if you experience this. Immediately also come if it starts to come out of water from the vagina that can not be held. Your amniotic fluid may have ruptured if it did. The release of blood mucus during labor is normal and not dangerous. However, if there is a lot of blood coming out, you should immediately go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Make sure all your needs and notes during pregnancy are prepared by you to be taken to the hospital. The results of the last ultrasound during the third trimester by an obstetrician can be very helpful in determining whether there are possible complications during labor. If it has been 48 hours (if the first delivery) or 24 hours (if the second delivery is) or more since you were first said to have opened but you have not experienced a strong sense of eagerness, keep coming to the hospital.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
