Stomach Aches And Back Pain When 38 Weeks Pregnant?
My doctor is pregnant 38week 2 days ago I feel a stomach ache and abdominal pain and waist please explain and it has been 10 days I have started feeling heartburn because of tiredness pulkam whether it can affect amniotic fluid
Maybe what you mean is that you are worried that your heartburn can cause the amniotic membrane to burst early, right? In the late trimester of pregnancy, when the gestational age has entered 37 weeks, the pregnancy can be said to be mature. That is, the birth process can begin at any time since entering the week. The fetus is mature, so the function of its organs should be ready to begin life outside the womb. Naturally, in late pregnancy there are many fake contractions or muscle cramps and muscle aches, especially lower back muscles, waist, buttocks, pelvis, and lower abdomen. The size of the fetus enlarges rapidly, the position of the fetus that is increasingly entering the upper door of the pelvis, and maternal hormonal changes, will cause pressure and contraction in the back muscles, abdomen, and pelvis.
You do not explain what kind of abdominal pain you feel. Generally abdominal pain due to fake contractions, can be felt like pain like CHAPTER or pain during menstruation, but maybe with a more tangible intensity. Pay attention to the pain and heartburn that you feel. Is it followed by tightened abdominal muscles, does it happen more and more regularly? If so, then maybe you have already begun labor.
If abdominal pain is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, then stomach pain may be associated with digestive disorders such as gastritis. Watch for abdominal pain to improve or worsen when the stomach is filled with food.
Premature rupture of membranes is a condition in which the membranes rupture before entering labor, so there is a risk that the amniotic fluid will dry up and can cause fetal distress. Premature rupture of membranes is generally felt as discharge from the vagina, without the feeling of wanting to urinate, the fluid continues to seep, and the fluid has a distinctive odor of amniotic fluid.
Please check with your obstetrician if you are worried. The doctor will assess whether the pain you feel is a fake contraction or pain due to digestive problems. In the meantime, you should get enough rest, sleep 6-8 hours a night. You can still do your daily activities, but avoid activities that are too heavy. Make sure your fluid and nutrition intake is optimal, so that your energy reserves are sufficient for the labor process.
Hopefully this answer can be useful. Regards.
