Ways To Speed Up Labor?
Afternoon .. I was pregnant in the UK 37w2day .. 4 days before I had rhythmic contractions every 5 minutes continuously. After I checked, the opening was 1. Katany waited for 2-4 openings and had to wait 1 week at least 3 days. While the contraction has no pause at all like going to haud and wanting to defecate … but the opening stage there is no progress so I can’t sleep because of the continuous contraction until now. R n How do I fix it? Meanwhile, the delivery team told me to come back after the discharge / mucus mixed with blood came out. But at this time I haven’t experienced it yet .. how did I get stressed because I couldn’t bear to endure so long.
Hello Rully Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normal delivery is a process in which the cervix or cervix opens and thins then the fetus will descend at birth. Then enter the stage of childbirth where the fetus and amniotic fluid are pushed out through the birth canal. The process of childbirth usually occurs at 37-42 weeks of gestation. Contractions are a sign of the start of labor. But often found false contractions or can be called Braxton Hicks. Some other signs that you should look out for about signs of labor include:
The existence of false contractions: when there is false contraction the stomach will tighten and feel lost and arising. The force of this contraction will be weaker than the original contraction. False contractions can last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, so it is necessary to distinguish them from the original contractions which will usually appear stronger and usually appear continuously not disappearing when you are resting and in a relaxed position.
Back pain, abdominal pain or cramps
Rupture of amniotic fluid: usually described by the discharge of water from the birth canal, this sign is the most common sign of childbirth that most pregnant women notice. Besides that, the discharge of water will be accompanied by contractions
Thick mucus mixed with blood from the birth canal
Changes in the cervix: on examination the cervix will soften and become elastic
Contractions that occur earlier than 37 weeks are usually false contractions. The original contractions will usually be felt after your womb is over 37 weeks. Seeing that your womb has passed the age of 37 weeks, you need to pay attention that these contractions are indeed original contractions. Plasu contractions are temporary in nature. If you have experienced frequent and frequent contractions that are getting worse and then marked by the thinning of the cervical wall and the cervix or the cervix is opening, this is one of the labor processes.
The opening is about 1 cm, meaning that the cervix that opens the size reaches 1 cm, for the arch opening of the cervical wall will be thinner and the cervix opens up to 10 cm. However, if your pregnancy is your first pregnancy, a 1 cm cervical opening cannot guarantee that you will soon give birth, in some cases it may take a few days for the next opening. In theory, the process will take several hours which can be divided into 4 processes or times:
Stage 1: is a process that begins at the opening of the cervix due to the interaction up to complete opening or 10 cm. This process is further divided into the latent phase, namely the cervix opens up to 3 cm which occurs for 8 hours, then the active phase when the cervix begins to open from 3 cm to 10 cm and the contractions will get stronger and last up to 7 hours. However, that time cannot be used as a standard because it will be different for each pregnant woman. Or the time needed to complete opening is approximately 15 hours, if this is your first pregnancy the process can take up to 20 hours or more. Some important events that occur during the 1st stage are a sign or the process that you have entered the labor process, namely the discharge of mucus that can be mixed with blood, the discharge of water that indicates the rupture of the amniotic fluid, and the cervix or cervix that is thinning and opening.
Stage 2: is a process that starts from complete opening (10cm) until the baby is born which can take 1 to 2 hours
Stage 3: is a process that starts after the baby is born until the placenta is born, usually lasting less than 30 minutes
Stage 4: is a process that starts at birth of the placenta until 2 hours postpartum.
Discharge of water or discharge mixed with blood from the vagina is usually a sign that you have experienced a rupture of the membranes which is an important event that occurs during the 1st stage of labor, this sign usually indicates that labor has occurred and usually this labor will occur 24 hours after the water has broken. Therefore, if this complaint is marked you must immediately rush to the nearest hospital.
Sometimes it can be difficult to detect a break in your water. Rupture of membranes is often not realized by pregnant women, especially if you have just had your first pregnancy, some people will experience rupture of membranes such as water coming out of the birth canal which is quite a lot even dripping to the feet, but in some people the rupture of membranes is only felt a little and it only drips so that it is often not realized that the water is amniotic fluid. Therefore it is important for you to know the signs of amniotic rupture:
Dripping amniotic fluid: rupture of the amniotic fluid is felt as warm water dripping from the birth canal and foam down to the feet. Pants that suddenly feel wet are also commonly experienced by pregnant women when they enter the labor process.
Popping: the breaking of the amniotic fluid in some women will feel like a pop
Flowing: some pregnant women will experience heavy rupture of the membranes such as pouring and immediately wetting the feet and floor.
Rupture during sleep: some pregnant women will experience a break in the water during sleep, and realize that when you wake up there will be a puddle of amniotic fluid, or often wake you who are asleep
Therefore, the breaking of the amniotic fluid is a sure sign that you will soon give birth. If you feel this condition, stay calm and immediately rush to the birthing center or hospital nearest you. Although a 1 cm cervical opening does not always guarantee that you will soon give birth, if you feel contractions that are getting worse with a strong intensity and frequency that are getting more frequent, especially if the pain bothers you, you should be able to consult your obstetrician or midwife again. who already took care of you before. Because if it bothers and makes you stressed it is also not good for the health of your pregnancy.
