Moms and their views always causes me a lot of positive emotions and quiet tenderness.They are so funny and majestic with their bellies, and these tummy grows new life.Watching on a pregnant woman, I do not consciously think of myself.Once I had the same round and important.Only it was oh how long ago!In the last century!But I remember everything very well, like my son, not 20 years, but only just 1 month.
I have not said in vain "in the last century," No one then rushed to the future mothers.There was no program "Partnership in childbirth", video manuals, training courses for childbirth, to tell the truth, literature, literate, and that was not.No we are not talking about the fights and attempts in pregnancy than they are different.When can we expect their appearance, how to behave during them.The most "valuable" advice could give a mother, aunt, grandmother or older sister, it was based only on their personal experience.And talk about it, it was not accepted.As a result, every pregnant woman has give
not knowledge can lead to various complications such as his mother's side, as well as from the child.Not long ago gave birth to my dear little sister, I was ready for this event, "shod" various literature, including his personal and professional experience.The kid was born without complications and healthy.I will try here to tell all and dispel irrational fears expectant mothers.
What fights and attempts, how do they differ?
contractions are regular contractions and the characteristic of first stage of labor, their task is expulsion of the fetus from the womb.The process is fairly complex and is caused by the same biochemical changes.The emergence of labor indicates the beginning of the birth itself.
throughout pregnancy hormonal changes a woman's body several times.At the beginning of produced substance responsible for the continuation of the pregnancy is progesterone (a hormone of the corpus luteum).Toward the end of pregnancy, the placenta and the baby's pituitary gland begin to produce the hormone oxytocin, which causes contractions themselves.Under its action occurs contraction of the muscles of the uterus, the disclosure of her neck up to 12 cm increase in uterine pressure.This leads to the opening of membranes and rupture of membranes.Since the birth process proceeds normally.
If a woman is ready to become a mother for the first time, the bout lasted about 12 hours, all that time, more than a pathology.For those women who are expecting the birth of second or third child this time is reduced to 4-5 hours.
Attempts This is the second stage of labor .Their early accession to the clashes said contraction of the muscles of the anterior abdominal wall and diaphragm, and some other muscle groups.
There is one important difference between the attempts by labor.Contractions process is not controlled, a woman can not influence their beginning, duration and interval.In attempts to some extent, the woman may be affected, if necessary, it can enhance or omit them.But it should be done only under the clear guidance of the doctor or you may harm your baby or yourself.There are situations when the baby's head is rising, but the "blow" the woman behind the attempts can not, we must give it time to rest.Then attempts delayed.Or head newborn already outside, and the neck and torso still inside the woman, it is necessary to strengthen attempts, or the baby may die from strangulation.Therefore, a woman in labor should be carefully and strictly follow the team medical staff.
What is true and false labor, and how do they differ?
False labor occur in pregnant women before 20 weeks.And are not we all.Display a sense of fossilization of the uterus, which is characteristic of pain there.This feeling lasts about one minute and repeated no earlier than 4-5 hours.They are, if you like a bit or take a warm bath.Why do they appear, no one knows, perhaps caused by the process of smoothing the cervix before birth.Another name for the false contractions - Braxton Hicks, who first described them.
true battle, their appearance indicates the beginning of the birth itself.There are several symptoms unique to them: at regular intervals, a gradual increase, and between them there is always an exact interval.At the beginning of the intensity of pain during labor is not very pronounced, the interval between them can be about half an hour of duration of about 5-10 seconds.Gradually, the pain intensity increases, and the interval between contractions is reduced.The most intense battle there before pushing.
How to help yourself during tribal clashes?
First, do not fear them, and prepare for the event.Attend various training courses for childbirth.There expectant mothers will learn to breathe correctly.
Once into labor do not need to lie down, and to move more it accelerates the cervical dilatation and shorten the process of childbirth.
Focus, listen to yourself and your baby, get a position in which you and he will be comfortable.You can lie down, sit, stand on all fours, on his heels and dance.No one would never blame you for extravagance.
Between contractions, give yourself a rest, lie down, or "pretended to be asleep."
Stroking her fingers in the lower abdomen and the sacrum during a fight will move it less painful.
With the start of the next fight can press your thumbs on the iliac bone from both sides of the front of the protruding spot.
In addition, during the fights themselves in a woman's body produces substances painkillers the process of childbirth and labor.This explains that in the intervals between contractions, the pain disappears.And after the birth of these substances help to "forget" the process of childbirth.Otherwise, after the first birth, no woman to agree to give birth again.
Lovely pregnant woman, and attempts to fight it is a great work of both, but the greater part rests on you, and you must make this effort and help the baby to be born.After all, you were waiting for the meeting of 9 months!
