Stomach Often Tight During Pregnancy Has Passed From HPL?
Afternoon … I want to ask … I was containing 9 months … doctor’s estimate was born on 20 yesterday but the day was also born but I like to feel a tight stomach that feels pain … but it appears and when the stomach feels tight I can stand the mules. … how could I be born … is that a sign that it won’t be long before I approach labor?
Hello He Ru, thank you for the question.
Mature babies are born at 38-40 weeks' gestation. The doctor will determine the estimated date of delivery based on your LMP (the first day of your last menstruation) and based on the signs of fetal growth through physical examination or ultrasound. Keep in mind that the estimated delivery is only an estimate. The exact date the baby will be born certainly cannot be predicted. Babies can be born prematurely (before 37 weeks) or can be born more months (41-42 weeks).
The symptoms that you feel may indeed be related to the process of preparation for birth. Abdominal cramps and tightness will become more regular. If you have regular contractions, you can be sure that you are entering labor. Contractions are also generally accompanied by discharge of blood from the vagina.
If after passing 40 weeks or past 41 weeks the baby has not yet been born, then you should immediately consult a doctor who treats. The doctor will check the condition of the fetus. If the fetus is indicated fetal distress, or premature rupture of membranes and dryness, or umbilical cord twisting occurs, fetal presentation is not normal, the uterus is not strong enough contractions, then the doctor will follow up. Follow-up can take the form of labor induction with oxytocin infusion, or cesarean surgery if it is felt that the condition of the fetus or mother is threatened.
Mothers can try pregnancy exercises, or walk, to help contractions to be more regular. Ensure adequate nutrition and adequate rest so that the mother's strength is strong enough when it's time for the baby to be born. Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
