The Cause Has Not Felt A Contraction At 40 Weeks Gestation?
I want to ask. If the thought affects the pregnancy contraction, the thing is, I keep thinking, how come there are no mules2 even though it’s been 40 weeks?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. In short, the mind will not affect pregnancy contractions. Regardless of whether you experience stress, anxiety, fear, sadness or no burden of mind whatsoever, contractions will still move at their own pace.
Then with respect to your condition, what you need to know is that the birth of a baby usually occurs at 40 weeks. With your gestational age being 40 weeks, contractions can come at any time and you have to start preparing by putting clothes and all the items you want to take to the hospital in a small bag or suitcase that can be taken at any time when signs labor occurs.
Meanwhile, if there are no changes in the next few days, check with your obstetrician to find out whether there is a possibility that your pregnancy this time needs to be induced or encouraged. This is important because if the baby is too long in the womb there are many risks that can be had. Among others are:
Lack of oxygen
Swallow or breathe in your own stool
Reduced amount of amniotic fluid
Difficult to pass the birth canal
Growth slows down or stops
Having fetal distress
A fetus dies in the womb
Therefore, if indeed you are encouraged induction, you should stick to it. The method can be to break the membranes on purpose, inject hormones or give you medicine, and if that doesn't work, a cesarean will be performed.
Meanwhile, you just need to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular breaks, a little walk every day, avoid cigarette smoke, manage stress well, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
