From the 28th week of pregnancy, the seventh month of pregnancy, the pregnant mother finally entered the third trimester. At this time, the pregnant mother obviously feels more tired than before. This is because the longer and larger the fetus is, the pregnant mother has various discomfort symptoms. Therefore, pregnant mothers need to pay more attention to rest, observe fetal movement, and pay more attention to proper exercise in order to give birth smoothly.
Symptoms of late pregnancy
1. Increased constipation
In the third trimester, the movement of the pregnant mother will reduce the amount of exercise correspondingly, so the activity of the stomach and intestines will also be reduced. However, the amount of food eaten by the pregnant mother will not be reduced. If the food is not digested in time, it will accumulate in the stomach and intestines. In the long run, constipation symptoms will appear. Slight constipation symptoms can be properly adjusted, but if the constipation is serious, you should arrive at the hospital in time Diagnosis.
2. Edema aggravation
In the late pregnancy, the fetus has grown very large, the uterus will compress the pelvic cavity, and the water and sodium in the limbs will accumulate, which will cause edema, which is a normal physiological phenomenon. Generally speaking, the foot, leg and hand edema are relatively obvious. If the leg edema does not exceed the knee, there is no need to worry, otherwise, it needs to be treated in time.
3. Loss of appetite
Many pregnant mothers will find that they eat less in the third trimester, and fear that the fetus is growing and undernourished. In fact, this is because the uterus becomes larger and oppresses the pregnant mother’s stomach. If you eat a little, you will feel full. Therefore, pregnant mothers must pay attention to eat less and eat more meals in the third trimester, and pay attention to adequate nutrition.
4. Frequent abdominal pain
Pregnant mothers in the third trimester often feel abdominal pain, thinking that they are going to have a baby. In fact, this is only a false uterine contraction, not a delivery. Generally speaking, mothers in the third trimester pay attention to rest fully, and the symptoms will be relieved.
5. Serious frequency of urination
With the increase of the month, the head of the fetus will sink more and press into the bladder, and then the pregnant mother will often feel like urinating, which is a normal physiological phenomenon. So pregnant mothers should not hold their urine, especially 1-2 hours before going to bed at night to try to reduce water intake and avoid getting up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet.
II. How to care in the third trimester
1. Pay attention to the frequency of fetal activity
The pregnant mother’s uterus will increase with the growth of the fetus, but after all, the space is limited, and the activity space and frequency of the fetus will also become smaller. This is that the pregnant mother should pay attention to the fetal heart rate monitoring, and timely visit the hospital if necessary.
2. Pay attention to the symptoms associated with red
Before childbirth, you will see red, but it is not necessarily childbirth. If there is no uterine contraction and amniotic fluid is not broken when you see red, you need not worry too much. However, if the red blood is not bright red, and the amount is greater than the amount of menstruation, you need to rush to the hospital for timely diagnosis.
3. Nursing after amniotic fluid rupture
If the amniotic fluid breaks, it needs to be delivered to the hospital immediately. If there is a large amount of active amniotic fluid, more and more amniotic fluid will be left. At this time, the pregnant mother should lie on her back as much as possible, raise her hips, and wait for the arrival of the ambulance. Of course, if there is no abdominal pain and bleeding, you can take a taxi to the hospital, but try to be accompanied by your family.
4. Pay attention to the relief of abdominal pain
Not abdominal pain can be delivered immediately, abdominal pain may be pseudo labor, generally speaking, pseudo labor will be relieved with the transfer of time, and the stomach will gradually become soft. The real labor is the pregnant mother with a hard stomach and regular contractions.
Therefore, pregnant mothers must be prepared for childbirth in the third trimester, and always observe the changes of fetal movements, especially the waiting bag. As husbands, they should also try to accompany pregnant mothers and avoid business trips.
