29, 30, 31, 32 weeks of pregnancy
If before pregnancy was associated with an increase, with a sultry June, when everything starts to ripen, the eighth month or 32 weeks - it is moderately rainy August with juicy tankers fruits andready to harvest an abundant crop grown during the summer months.
What's going on with the baby
Light baby is already fully matured.Formed the so-called "surfactant layer" - the lipid (fat) film covering the inside of the lungs and alveoli with a thin, one-molecule layer, allowing the baby to breathe normally.
in obstetric literature, this is called the "lungs of 1-2 degrees of maturity."If no lipid layer normal breathing impossible.If it is, the newborn's life threat is greatly reduced, even with minimal care (compliance and optimum temperature elementary hygiene) guaranteed the normal development of the child in the future.
Kid weighs 1600-2500 g for mom is a significant weight, she feels every day, and a length of 40.5 cm. Scarce move actively, and you, as before, mark the intensity of his movements.But the nature of the perturbations are likely to become slightly different.In place of the wild somersault and coups came pushes and kicks elbows and knees.This is natural, because the fruit is already large enough and in the uterus it closely.
Now you do need to monitor the state of the child, "counting" these movements.Any increase in activity or, conversely, its decline suggests some "failures" of the child.At the end of the eighth month of a little man already has quite a decent view of the environment that surrounds it.
We are accustomed to think of the uterus as an absolutely dark place, but in reality it is not.The light level in the uterus is strongly dependent on the lighting environment in which there is a pregnant woman.So your kid familiar concepts of light and darkness.In the womb the baby is getting crowded, and it may already be turned head down in preparation for birth.
What's going on with my mother
At this time, significant changes occur in the mother's body.Ogrubevayut and grow a little nipples, breasts poured.The baby grows and compresses your internal organs, causing shortness of breath and frequent urination.There may be cases of urinary incontinence - should you cough, sneeze or laugh.In this situation, you should go to the toilet more often, avoid constipation and try to regularly do exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor.
Lying on your back, bend your knees, resting on the floor.Lightly tighten, as if holding urination.Now imagine if you have something to draw in, and continue rhythmically to do it: voltage - pause, more stress - pause, the maximum stress - stop.Repeat 10 times.
Having mastered this simple exercise, run it as often as possible, at least 3-4 times a day.It can be done at any time and in any position: lying down, sitting or standing.Exercise is very useful to you in the second stage of labor, since the ability to relax the muscles of the pelvic floor will facilitate the passage of a child between the pelvic bones and reduce the risk of fractures.
lurk there in the eighth month of any complications?Certainly.So watch out for their well-being.It consists not only of the common indicators - appetite, sleep, mood, which is undoubtedly very important, but also of those called objective criteria, the most important of which is the tone of the uterus.
vast majority of women felt the tone of how dragging pain in the abdomen - is uterine contractions.Normally, they may be the case, especially when intense movements of the child.But in any case should not be permanent, and the more amplified.If this happens, immediately contact your doctor.
With 32 weeks of pregnancy the baby quite ready for the birth and can without a mother (perhaps with a little help from medical staff) to become an independent little man.Now you can with great certainty to determine when the fetus is asleep and when awake.
Most pregnant women feel that the child is sleeping, when the mother is active, and vice versa, too animated at night.But it says only that when my mother is, she feels the movement of the child more clearly.
Have you ever noticed that after a meal, even a very moderate in the stomach at times felt a noticeable weight and some discomfort.What to do?For a start you can try to eat vitamin salad "Whisk".Take raw beets and carrots, rub them on a coarse grater or grind in a food processor.Add the coriander, lots of garlic, a few drops of fresh lemon juice or a vegetable oil or soy sauce.
In the eighth month of pregnancy, women often experience difficulty breathing.The reason is that the growing baby presses on the diaphragm.Relief comes about a month before birth, when the baby's head is lowered to the entrance to the pelvis.
Shortness of breath may be caused by anemia, so try to relax as much as possible.Feeling short of breath, you need to sit down on a chair or just on his heels.At night, place them under the head of another pillow.If shortness of breath will intensify, consult a doctor.
noticed bleeding from the vagina, you should immediately lie down and call a doctor.After 28 weeks this may indicate that the placenta bleeds.Possible cause - detachment of the placenta from the uterine wall or low position, in which the placenta covers the cervix.
The placenta provides the fetus vital activity, so if it is threatened, your doctor will most likely give you a referral for hospitalization and the hospital have to lie to the birth.If you have lost a lot of blood, you can make a transfusion, and childbirth is likely to accelerate stimulation or cesarean section.But if minor bleeding occurred a few weeks before the expected birth, the doctor may decide that you should wait for the natural onset of labor.
Do not worry if the proposal will be followed until delivery to lie down in the nursing home.This is good.Estimate ahead of a year of trouble and sleepless nights, and now you offer a week-long or two-week vacation!Agree, as the saying goes "without looking!" Let the family will work - prepare things for the future of the children of the place for you, renewed and confident in the future.
