Stomach Feels Tight And Feels Like Urinating Continuously When 37 Weeks Pregnant?
I am currently 37 weeks pregnant. But 2 nights my stomach feels tight and sometimes it becomes hard and the urge to urinate is getting higher. So that makes me uncomfortable and hard to sleep. Is that a fake sign of contraction? Because considering the age of my pregnancy is still 37 weeks. thanks.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Is this your first pregnancy?
The complaint that the mother feels, seems to be a fake contraction. These contractions will disappear when the mother does activities, such as leisurely walking. The more often the mother walks casually, the better it is for fetal progress to descend into the pelvic door and false contractions will become less frequent and even disappear.
At the gestational age of mothers who have been waiting for this day, it is natural that mothers feel often want to urinate. This is because the fetus moves down and down into the pelvic door, as a result the fetus will press on the mother's bladder. So, even though the mother's bladder is not full, the urge to urinate will be natural to the mother, the more gestational age the more disturbing it will be.
The actual contraction of the uterus is characterized by low back pain radiating to the placenta that is getting more frequent and stronger, accompanied by the discharge of mucus mixed with blood. When there is a sign of phlegm coming out mixed with blood, the mother can already come to the delivery place for further examination.
Mother do not give up, if there are no signs of childbirth (ie, mucus discharge in the direction or out of water), keep routinely and make relaxing walking activities become more frequent. This is very helpful to speed up and simplify the labor process.
Besides that, don't forget to control the health workers where the mother plans to give birth every Sunday (once a week yes ma'am) until delivery occurs. This time is the most appropriate time for health workers to consider a good way to give birth to mothers. Do not forget the mother to increase daily nutrition for the mother to undergo labor, especially if later can undergo a normal delivery, then this provision will be needed. Enough rest, because when the labor process will arrive, maybe it will take mother's time to rest. You can read about things that you have to prepare before the maternity process arrives in this article.
Thus hopefully useful.
