What's going on when the pregnant belly is stiff and painful? Don’t panic when pregnant, listen to what the doctor says

Many pregnant mothers may appear in the third trimester, some early, this situation will occur more than 6 months of pregnancy.

What is false contraction? How to ease it?

False contractions, also known as protracted contractions, is when the uterus begins to perform pre-birth exercises in late pregnancy to prepare for the birth of the fetus. Especially when the pregnant mother is walking, it will stimulate fetal activity and cause contractions. Mainly manifested as a slight pain in the abdomen that is hard, tight, and stretched, and it is a burst after another, but it is not long, and there is no regularity. Sometimes once an hour or two, sometimes once a day or two, but it will make the pregnant mother very panic. Especially before labor, the lower part of the uterus under the fetal head will cause traction stimulation, and false contractions will become more and more frequent. However, if there are no labor-related signs of abdominal pain and bleeding, nor if it is frequent to every few minutes or more than ten minutes, pregnant mothers should not worry too much.

As for how to relieve false contractions, the main reason is not to stimulate the abdomen, rest more, and do not lift heavy objects. Try not to eat spicy and stimulating food, so as not to aggravate the situation of false contractions. In addition, do not maintain a sitting or standing posture for a long time. When the contraction comes, you can adjust your breathing and relieve it by slowly exhaling with deep breathing.

Matters needing attention in preventing false contractions

My classmates, before the third trimester, they began to have symptoms of a hard belly and painful false contractions. After examination, it was because the uterine contractions caused by too little amniotic fluid. Therefore, the doctor suggested that she drink plenty of water at ordinary times, hoping to grow the amniotic fluid. Therefore, to prevent false contractions, pregnant mothers might as well start by drinking more water, and don't let the amniotic fluid in their stomachs become less.

In addition, be careful when taking a bath during pregnancy. Do not take too long to wash, and do not flush hot water directly against your stomach. Because it is easy to stimulate the fetus and cause contractions. If you are in the third trimester of pregnancy, there is still a taboo, that is the same room. Because the husband and wife are in the same room, it will stimulate the pregnant mother, which will also cause a certain degree of stimulation to the fetus and uterus, which may cause contractions. In addition, if you are a pregnant mother with twins, you should also pay special attention, usually do not move too much, too tired, because the pregnant mother with twins has a heavy uterine load, once subjected to external stimulation, it is more likely to cause contractions.

Therefore, as long as the false contractions do not reach the point of abdominal pain, bleeding, and premature birth, pregnant mothers do not have to panic, because this is a normal physiological phenomenon during pregnancy. What pregnant mothers have to do is to prevent false contractions in advance, pay more attention to diet, safety and rest during pregnancy, relax and greet the arrival of the baby.
