Is it because the big moment: your baby wants to come to the world! For many women, the contractions start with mixed feelings is connected especially with the first child. Yay, let’s go! Help, it really go? And how long will it take?
That can give you but no one say, because every birth follows its own rhythm. But most likely, you have enough time to drive without any hustle and bustle in the clinic.
In my experience it’s good expectant mothers to remain as calm as possible. Certainly you discussed in the antenatal classes, suggesting that it is not only to practice labor. Take for example a warm bath, to find out if there really are opening labor: let warmth and relaxation the contractions do not fade away or are even stronger, then your baby has given the go-ahead. Are you sure that the contractions are regular? Then tell your partner or the person who accompanied the birth the best once. You can call also your midwife and consult again with her.
Of course you can also just drive to the clinic if you prefer. Labour are staffed around the clock with doctors and midwives. You will first examine these on all cases. In order to assess the situation, doctor or midwife will provide some questions: mainly due to the regular or growing pains, you suspect that the birth has started? Have you noticed if already amniotic fluid goes down with maternity shoes from Justinshoes? A CTG is usually made to record the heartbeat of your baby and the uterine contractions. An ultrasound will help to determine the size of the baby and to determine the amount of amniotic fluid. You can also be to clarify whether the placenta (placenta) works fine. The physical examination also shows whether the labor already are effective on the cervix and push ahead its opening.
Is sure that the birth has started, it depends on how you feel. Not all mothers directly control the delivery room, which has often time. Perhaps you want to bring your belongings in the room once. Or a little running around with your partner, take a bath… Just, do what helps you to draw strength for this unique experience: the birth of your child!
Tip: Please try never to go when no one is even with the car in the hospital! The risk of injury is too great, a sudden, violent contraction can distract you. Call a taxi or, if you prefer, an ambulance.
How to Recognize the Contractions?
A doubt recurrent among mothers is: how are the pains of the contractions of labour, and what are the tips that help to identify the moment in which the baby is close to birth.
The contractions of labour correspond to a feeling of tightness and relaxation of the uterus, accompanied by pain or just a mild annoyance. The movement occurs with the purpose to dilate the walls of uterine, assisting the exit of the baby to the birth canal when it is close to the birth.
The contractions of the uterus may manifest itself in different moments of the pregnancy. However, when they appear at the end of the pregnancy, represent one of the main symptoms of childbirth.
HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE LABOUR CONTRACTIONS TRUE FALSE
Contractions may occur from time to time in the course of the pregnancy, the difference is that these cases are not painful, contrary to what happens in relation to that indicate that the time has come for the birth.
The contractions of false can occur after a busy day, and with excessive efforts on the part of a pregnant woman. It is important that the woman remains relaxed, relax and hydrate the body with water intake.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CONTRACTIONS OF LABOUR
Pregnant women who tend not to feel contractions, they will easily identify the moves of uterine that indicate the birth. In this case they are:
The contractions correspond to a feeling of tightness (the uterus hardens for about 30 seconds and then relax), and abdominal pain similar to menstrual cramps with a pain that radiates throughout the abdominal area.
The contractions of labor are regular and progressive, increasing in frequency, intensity and duration throughout the process of dilation of the cervix.
The increase in the frequency and intensity of the contractions has as goal to open the cervix up to 10 cm and push for progressive and systematic examination of the baby to the outside.
When it reaches the 3 – 4 cm dilated, it is considered to be in labor. Now, already in the hospital/maternity, will have to wait until you get to 10 cm dilated, at which time the baby’s head is already visible and if you start the next stage of birth: expulsion of the baby.
THE 3 PHASES OF THE CONTRACTIONS OF LABOUR
The first stage of labor is more prolonged and of variable duration consisting of 3 phases:
- Latent phase: begins with the appearance of mild contractions with an interval of 10 to 15 minutes among themselves and with the duration of 15 to 20 seconds. At this stage, may reach 3 – 4 cm dilated.
- Active phase: descent of the fetus is continuous, with contractions lasting 30 to 45 seconds in intervals of 5 minutes. Reaches 4 cm to 7 cm of dilation (at this stage it should already be in the hospital / maternity).
- Transition phase: contractions lasting 60 to 90 seconds, and a great desire to make the effort. Reaches 10-cm dilation.
The time duration of each of these phases is highly variable from person to person. In addition to the circumstances of each birth, their duration also varies for the women who will be mothers for the first time or who have had children previously.
HOW TO KNOW WHEN TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL/MATERNITY
When you start to feel contractions, record them to get an idea of how they appear. When the contractions become regular (about 3 contractions every 10-15 minutes), it is time to go to the maternity / hospital.
If you notice loss of amniotic fluid, may be a sign that there has been rupture of membranes. In this case, you should go to the hospital, even if you do not feel contractions.
If you have blood loss vaginal, you should go immediately to the hospital, regardless of gestational age.
