Why is My Cervix Open During Pregnancy
Why is my cervix open during pregnancy It normally opens during the start of labor. I'm not in labor, nor should I be. When the cervix opens and shortens early in labor or contractions before you are supposed to have the baby, that is called an incompetent cervix or cervical weakness. And unlike the muscles in the pelvis I've been doing those exercises for so I do not pee every time I sneeze after having the baby, no one has told me what I can do to control this. If you think the cervix is opening during the second trimester, you want to go to the.
Doctor to get it under control. What could a doctor do If you are in early labor, you may get progesterone, get told not to lift anything or have sex, be put on bed rest or even surgery to sew it shut. That does not work well when it is straining to open. And what about steroids That is done when they do not think the kid can be kept in, so the steroids force the lungs to develop faster. So much for using steroids to strengthen that critical muscle. There are conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure that raise the risk of early.
Cervix dilation. Depending on your situation, it may be as simple as getting prenatal diabetes under control. I do not have diabetes, and I do not have that high blood pressure preeclampsia condition that can trigger early labor. If you have preeclampsia, you probably won't go into early labor but they will induce it or do a Csection so it won't kill you. What causes the cervix to open early In some cases, it is linked to infection. Whether the cervix opens because of the infection or infection is caused by the open cervix.
It is supposed to be closed to protect the baby. The baby is at some risk if the cervix is open, but the baby is at high risk if your water has broken. I do not think that's happened. Why does this happen In some women, the cervix is just shorter than average and or weaker than it should be. That's the typical cause if you've had prior second trimester miscarriages. I have not. The risk of an open cervix goes up if you get pregnant before the first kid is walking.
Is it Safe to Fly During My First Trimester
Is it safe to fly during my first trimester It is normally the third trimester when they say not to fly, or rather, OMG, please do not have the baby on our flight. I'm way before that point. Then you have to decide if you want to board the plane while stocking up on barf bags because motion sickness plus morning sickness equals misery. I have dealt with motion sickness in a car. At least planes have barf bags built in. Yeah, but you cannot pull over to throw up outside. And there may not be the facilities.
To let you barf in peace in the bathroom when ten other people need to pee. I do have to pee a lot. That's actually easier to handle these days, from pads in your panties if you leak when you sneeze to screaming pregnant woman coming through, everyone get out of my way. I do not leak when I sneeze. That you'll probably deal with after you have the baby. Someone told me that the risk of medical complications like miscarriage go up when on a plane. A pregnant woman's risk of blood clots is six or seven times that of everyone else,.
So your risk of deep vein thrombosis and blood clots is way higher. You can solve that by getting up and walking around. In fact, regular trips to the bathroom by definition reduce that risk. Your odds of blood clots are worse if you're on a really long flight over 12 hours. What about the risk of miscarriage The odds of that are about the same on the plane as off the plane unless you literally get hysterical and melt down. The only thing that would set me off is a screaming baby flight.
It only seems like all the babies on board are screaming when you're stuck together inside an echoing metal tube. That is what they call it when a dozen baby girls come back at the same time with adopted parents they do not know on planes with air pressure changes on a twelve hour flight. It gets your blood pressure up. If you are suffering from high blood pressure, blurred vision and other symptoms of preeclampsia, you should not get on a plane in the first place because there's no medical help readily.

OR PHYSICIAN This is Jasmine, and she's here for a Csection for twins. KAREN This is one of the most rare type of twin pregnancy. DR. DIAMOND Knife, please. So we're at the uterus now.
Why is My Pregnancy Bump So High
Why is my pregnancy bump so high Wait a couple days, and it will probably be low again. I've heard carrying high means it is a boy. And there's a fiftyfifty chance that's true. So why is it high The kid is growing, and since the pelvis is not going to get much wider, the kid's mass goes forward. He's been growing an ounce or more each week, but the bump seems much higher than before. So he was sideways last week, so you looked like you were wide, and now he's head first,.
And the bump is high. I do not think he's head down yet. When the kid is flipping, you'll hear that carrying wide means it is a girl while narrow means a boy, but when the kid is high, you're by default narrow. Unless the kid is at an angle. They should keep flipping and turning until they are head down. Or rather, ideally so you do not have breech birth. That would literally be a pain in every sense of the word. Remember that carrying high just means the most protruding part is under the abdomen.
But you do not know if that's a butt or a head. So this week he's headbutting your diaphragm and next week kicking it, both of which are high if you're protruding a lot. I do seem to carry higher than my friends. First, the degree to which the pregnancy sticks out is related to how good a shape you're in. Not 300 pounds such that you cannot tell that I'm pregnant. If you had six pack abs before pregnancy and stayed in that condition, you'd protrude less than those who were not. Second, if this is the second pregnancy or later, the uterus.
Is stretched out, so the kid sticks out more. So I could carry high because I do not carry it as well. Or you may not have as long a torso, so you seem to carry high because the kid is just sticking out more. Like almost everything else these days. The belly bump could look high due to your outfit. You could also seem to carry high if you are wearing low rise jeans with a belly band instead of a flowing maternity dress. The only thing a fashion change means is that no one can tell anything except that I'm.
Will I Deliver Early With My Second Baby
We just found out that I'm pregnant again. Will I deliver early with my second baby Was your first baby a preemie Yes. He was two months early. Part of the answer depends on why you delivered early. If you have a problem like an incompetent cervix, you are at risk of premature delivery with every baby. I'm not incompetent. I'm a good mother. That's a reference to the muscles holding in the child, not your ability to raise it. Though I do now question your vocabulary. Our firstborn is already chatting up a storm. I told him there was a baby in my tummy, and.
He lifted up my shirt and asked where it was. Like mother, like son, I suppose. If you smoke, you're at risk of early delivery. I don't smoke anymore. Then your risk of early delivery is reduced. Did you have preeclampsia No. The doctor is screening for everything. Preeclampsia can make you go into labor early, or the doctors may deliver you early just to prevent major complications for you. I know multiple births increase the risk of early delivery. But this is an only child, well, second child. Because your firstborn was premature, the odds of the second being early are higher.
But there are other things that increase the risk, like being diabetic, some types of STDs, being underweight, extreme stress and trauma. I try to avoid major drama. If you got pregnant less than six months after your last birth or miscarriage, this one is at risk of coming early. I thought having kids close together made things easier. Having one baby within a few years of the prior one means you'll have faster labor, because the muscles are still primed to pop out a kid. Too close, and your body hasn't.
SelfTest for Thyroid Problems
Hi I'm Dr. Allen Peters, Physician Healthy Aging Expert from NourishingWellness and I'm here today for About to share with you how to do a SelfTest for Thyroid Problems. This is a very simple exam which I do on every patient that I see, and you can do on yourself. You put your head back and feel for the thyroid cartilage. You feel both sides of the cartilage, and you might feel a small amount of soft tissue. You can exaggerate the tissue or exaggerate the thyroid cartilage by swallowing several times. If you feel more than a small amount.
Of tissueIf you feel a swelling or lumps or bumps this may be indicative on an enlarged thyroid or thyroid nodules which could be benign or malignant. If you do feel something large you should see your doctor. If he or she agrees the next step is usually getting an ultrasound. Now I want to mention that there are also some lumps behind the cartilage on the side of the neck, and these are just lymph nodes. I'm talking about the actual thyroid cartilage itself and the gland that is right there in.
That particular area. By the way, I want to emphasize that you could have an abnormal thyroid without being able to feel anything. It can be either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. So if you are having symptoms of an increased metabolic rate like high blood pressure and palpitations and anxiety and nervousness to a great degree. Or if you are having slow down symptoms of slowdown metabolism like being tired and fatigued and depressed and low blood pressure and low pulse rate and constipated and hair falling out, then you may have thyroid disease even if you can't feel anything abnormal. So under those conditions.
What is a HighRisk Pregnancy
To try to figure out if you're highrisk or lowrisk is sometimes quiet difficult. The reality is that there's always a gradation and many women will think that they're highrisk simply because they're over 35 for example. Age puts you at more risk. We have a lot of women who are in their late 30's and early 40's that have absolutely normal pregnancies but you are at more risk of having more complications if you are at what they call advanced maternal age, so over the age of 35. Coming in and assuming that you're too highrisk is probably.
Not a great starting point. Have a conversation with the provider that you've chosen and they'll help you sort out if you really are too highrisk for their particular clinic. Many women who are highrisk know that they are. High blood pressure is a common one. Women that have had prior csections are more highrisk. Diabetes can also be a complicating factor. If you have underlying diabetes it can require a lot more monitoring throughout the pregnancy and sometimes even early delivery. Obesity can put you at more risk more risk for needing.
