There Are No Signs Yet Of Giving Birth?
Sorry .. I want to ask, my wife last checked Monday said the midwife has opened 1 but has been open for 5 days now .. Every day consulting the midwife and always told to wait patiently … While the HPL on April 22 this. Previously on ultrasound he said guy. If the baby is really long …? .. And this is the second child, before the girl child and her birth was fast .. I’m confused .. Please give me enlightenment … Thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. For women who are pregnant with their first child, opening 1 usually indicates the time of delivery is near, but for those who are already pregnant the second and so on, opening 1 can occur well in advance of HPL. So opening is indeed one sign that labor is imminent, but not the only one.
Among the signs that labor is imminent are the more frequent and regular contractions, the rupture of amniotic fluid, the discharge of blood and mucus from the vagina, and the mother feels she wants to push. So it is clear if all the signs are not there yet, even though it is open 1, it is not certain that labor will take place immediately. Especially with the HPL which is still April 22, it means that your baby is not supposed to be born.
So here you do not need to worry, your child is not difficult to be born, but it is not the time yet. Our advice, do not just check your wife to the midwife, but also to the obstetrician so that if there are certain abnormalities, can be treated immediately. In the meantime, you should prepare a bag containing all your wife's equipment to carry at any time if your wife feels the symptoms that we convey, and ask your wife to take a light walk to trigger labor. So, hopefully answering your question.
