The appearance of the first-born in the family - an unforgettable experiencefor all its members, especially for the baby's mother, has experienced a different kind of excitement, pain and discomfort. Over time, tribal and other pain superseded tender feelings to the baby, and at some point, there is at first shy and then, perhaps, the persistent thought of another child.
Every mom knows that the most exciting andthe most important moment of the entire period of pregnancy - is labor. Perhaps calling this period "moment" was not quite right, because it has its own duration, individually for each woman. But the beginning of this process can not be overlooked. Especially if it is the second birth. How do you know - when it began as the starting second birth?
At the final stage of pregnancy is quiteunderstandable desire of pregnant women to predict how it will happen a second time. Analyze previous generations always helpful. If they are accompanied with some surprises or complications, then your conclusions will help to avoid their recurrence. And if all goes well, you should do the same. Participation of physician in the "strategy" of development is appropriate - together will create a more robust action plan.
How will it be and what to expect?
Start of the second birth
During the second pregnancy and second generations have their own characteristics, because mommy body has experienced the moment of the peak, so familiar with all the changes throughout the process.
Note!New generations will be different from the first.
The pregnant woman's body for childbirth preparationIt is under the control of female sex hormones. As we know, the main hormone of 9-month period - progesterone. It creates a normal tone of the uterus, promotes the production of cervical mucus, ensures the successful development and growth of the baby, it determines the required content in the blood of oxygen and nutrients, as well as the delivery of this valuable material to the baby. But somewhere in the two weeks prior to delivery there is a change in hormonal levels of women: progesterone yields its leadership to another hormone - estrogen, which has to perform a very different mission. It's time to prepare a way out into the world a baby. And hormone successful and very much in time to deal with it:
- The very beginning of labor - it is genericcontractions that are felt as a result of nerve impulses. A nerve impulse occurs when estrogen concentration reaches the desired concentration.
- In the first stage of labor estrogen provides elasticity and permeability of the birth canal. After all, it depends on them, how active the first stage of labor revealed the cervix.
- In the second stage of labor duration bearing-down period depends on the elasticity of the vaginal walls and their ability to stretch.
Childbirth - a reflex process, complicated and dependentregulated by the nervous system and hormonal. Quest, which is a contraction of the uterus, uterine nothing but a reaction to the irritation of the nerve endings in her walls. At this point, the nerve segments allocated active substances that promote new, next uterine contraction. And this circular chain continues till the end of childbirth until your prenatal treasure is not "climbs" out and notify their cry.
Precursors of birth
To know in advance how to begin the second birth,it is important to familiarize yourself with the main "signals" of their approach. These signals are detected, starting from the 32 th week, and become unbearable just before the delivery itself. Consider them.
When I dropped belly
Belly down. Normally, the stomach falls, starting with the 36th week. But we give birth a second time! The child in this case is in no hurry to go down, and sometimes makes it just before birth, finally giving mom a little more freely breathing - the diaphragm is no longer experiencing the baby calf such pressure as before. For this reason, it becomes easier and your stomach - rarely makes itself felt heartburn. At the bottom of the uterus the baby reduces its activity - it closely, his head is fixed, it can only move the arms and legs. But breech fetus omission belly there.
Spreading the pelvic bones
The bones of the pelvis move apart. Aching pain on this brightevidence. There is a stretch of the sacroiliac joint, which is derived from the fact that potyazhelevshy baby descends lower and lower. Pain in the lower back can reduce swimming and special exercises.
Swelling and cramps
There were swelling and cramps. The reason is the same - the kid fell down the abdomen. His head presses on the blood vessels of the pelvis, and the vessels meet the cramps and swelling of the legs.
"False" contractions. Starting from the 30th week, a pregnant body canexperiencing Braxton-Higgs, who is also called "false" contractions. A clear manifestation of their case, usually for 2-3 weeks before delivery. Multiparous women are more likely to experience Braxton-Higgs, while at first birth, they may remain completely unnoticed. So call them a sure sign of the beginning of the second birth is hardly possible.
Feels like contractions B-X are very similar to conventional(True), bout, with the only difference being that the frequency of these struggles - constant: every 20 minutes, uniformly strengthening and lengthening the duration. Contractions Braxton same-Higgs occur at a constant dynamics (without reinforcement and extension in time) and repeated after different periods of time: the 10 minutes, then 30, then 15, then 20 minutes. They usually last for 2-3 hours, and may be renewed every day (in this case, consult your physician). The main difference contractions Braxton-Higgs that their activity does not lead to cervical dilatation.
Note!It also happens that the battle B-X gradually transformed into real battle with the inherent regularity and characteristic dynamics, a smooth transition into the regular labor.
'False' bout suggest "training" the muscle tissue of the uterus. Why her and not try your hand in front of responsible work in the last week before the birth?
Passage of cork
The mucous plug is moved. The phenomenon is very insidious and individual: it can happen directly before the birth, and 2 weeks prior to them, but more often - 4-5 days before birth and continue a couple of days. It represents detachment of mucus (perhaps as a clot with different hues - red to whitish) and often indicates that delivery can begin at any time.
Amniotic fluid poured out. This suggests that the onset of labor canhappen in the next day. In the bladder, is typically contained 800 ml of the clear waters with white patches, but in some cases their volume may reach 2-3 liters. The greenish hue of water indicates the presence of hypoxia (oxygen deficiency) the fetus.
According to the way nature intended (and maybeThe Almighty, because the birth of a person - it is a sacrament, a person eludes) fetal bladder to the amniotic fluid is opened, since the middle of the 1st stage of labor. The cervix is half opened, and in this she helped fetal bladder. But if the bubble is opened that can occur on their own, the amniotic fluid flow freely out of the vagina. This may not be preceded by any sensation (bout attempts, the urge to urinate).
Note!For the baby remaining in the aneroidspace for discharge of amniotic fluid, a sharp change of environment - stress. In addition, the membranes are always protected the fetus and uterus from infection is therefore a waste of amniotic fluid increases the risk of getting an infection.
Hence, waste water, or partialleakage should be a signal to the urgent appeal to doctors. Test results on the leakage of amniotic fluid will be given after only 15 minutes. But most importantly - you'll be under the control of doctors!
Birth pangs of the second birth
Well, the most important thing. Regular contractions. Of course, the fight - a classic labor. Vtororodyaschim women there is no need to explain what a real fight, which takes place through:
- in the I stage of labor: cervix to exit her baby;
- in the II stage of labor: the movement of the baby through the birth canal, and in fact his birth;
- in the III stage of labor: the birth of the placenta - is separated from the uterine wall placenta, which comes along with the remnants of the umbilical cord and membranes.
Duration of true contractions in early labor10-15 seconds, at the end - about 1 minute, the pain in the process of development of labor increase. The interval between the true contractions gradually shrinking - from 15 or more minutes to 2-3 minutes.
Thus, repeated births occur quickly first. But it is necessary to know that only in the case if the second child is born not later than 5 years and if the cervix between births was not exposed to radical surgery. After all, any interference can prevent it from behaving as intended.
