Harbinger of genera in second-generation: what you should know about them
Future parents sit on websites and forums for moms, learn tons of information provided by the media, share their experiences and fears, ask thousands of questions about pregnancy and childbirth. For the sake of truth it is worth noting that those who are preparing for this role not for the first time are puzzled no less.
If you are one of them, then your body has remembered the previous experience, so ordered mother nature. You already know what awaits you - at the psychological level you are ready. However, as you know, twice in one river you will not enter. Whatever you have in the childbirth account - it will always be an exciting and unrepeatable event. And you probably remember your first harbingers of birth. Either way, consciously or subconsciously, you draw an analogy with the first time. And do you know that the precursors of childbirth in second-rate can differ in their unobtrusiveness or weakness of expression?
What you should pay attention to?
First, listen to your feelings and watch. It is not a fact that you will immediately notice how the organism conducts an intensive preparation for the process of procreation. However, the precursors of childbirth in the secondborn, you can still recognize if you are careful.
If you watch for changes in your weight during pregnancy, you will probably notice that they have stopped gaining weight, and maybe dropped to 2 kg!
Often a woman who is preparing to become a mother is not the first time, is actively engaged in family affairs, so she is not particularly affected by such changes, but these phenomena also take place.
Irregular uterine contractions
Since your body has already experienced the process of childbirth, the uterus is more elastic, because she already has the experience of a phenomenon in the light of a baby. In this regard, such harbingers of labor, such as irregular uterine contractions, may remain unnoticed by you. If the first-borns begin 5-7 weeks before the coveted date, then the second-born may appear much later. If this occurs shortly before the expected date, you can easily confuse them with fights and hurry to come to the hospital, because there is an opinion that the second birth - fast.
You probably remember how in the first pregnancy your belly was watched not only by you, but by the whole family, friends and acquaintances. Perhaps, this time you will have to wait for this moment almost before the onset of labor.
When the child moves to the pelvis, there will be relief of breathing, but there will be pain in the lower back and a need for frequent visits to the toilet room, because the baby will put pressure on the walls of the uterus and, accordingly, on the organs and parts of the body that come in contact with it.
The process of separation of the mucous plug (possibly with blood veins) in the first pregnancy could last for a couple of weeks left before delivery. Now it can happen in a couple of days, and a couple of hours before the "hour X".
Uneven fetal movement
As practice shows, these precursors of childbirth in second-rate, as in principle and in the first-born, not every future mother can designate herself.
Contractions and the passage of amniotic fluid
This is the immediate beginning of labor, and you are already aware of how it looks. That's only from the fact that you have a pain threshold, it depends how soon you notice these pulling and rolling waves of pain in the lower abdomen. Also in a second-rate contraction period usually lasts two times less than the first time, but it also passes more intensively. Because of this, rapid delivery is possible. If the last time there was an amniotomy (in other words, a puncture of the bladder), then the passage of amniotic fluid can become a surprise for you. You will not ignore this event. In this case, as with bouts, it is necessary to go to the hospital. Here you can not go wrong - the birth began!
It is worth remembering about such changes in the body that tell a woman about the approach of labor, like pressure in the perineum, chills, frequent emptying of the intestine and maturation of the cervix. The gynecologist will inform you about the latter after the examination on the armchair. Now you know which harbingers of birth are worthy of attention!
Is it necessary to repeat that every pregnancy is unique and unique? Probably not! Accordingly, the precursors of labor in the second-born may radically differ from those during the first childbearing experience.
Happy birth to you!
