Third Trimester Symptoms Not To Ignore

third trimester symptoms not to ignore

Hi moms, before delivery or welcoming your little one, definitely moms any question. Roughly what third-trimester symptoms not to ignore. We will discuss this in detail. Surely many moms have entered the third trimester. They are already about to give birth, waiting for their little one. There may be questions about what can happen in this third trimester.

What problems do mothers often experience in the third trimester?

The third trimester is the period between 28 weeks until later moms give birth. Usually, in the third trimester, several conditions may be found quite often. And need to be the attention of all moms, we will discuss the following information:

  • The first is bleeding
  • The second is hypertension
  • The third is premature rupture of membranes and premature labor
  • And the last is what if the fetal movement is reduced.

What causes bleeding in the 3rd trimester and how is it different from childbirth bleeding?

In general, there are two causes of bleeding in the third trimester, namely placenta previa or a placenta that is located below or may cover the birth canal. The second is placental abruption or the placenta is detached from where it should be attached.

Placenta previa is possible if moms doing ultrasound regularly can tell. Her placenta under her placenta closes tired born or not yes. If for example placental abruption or placenta, after all, there are usually risk factors. So he rarely suddenly detaches himself.

But usually accompanied by hypertension, maybe after a fall or an accident. Or maybe you have a blood clotting disorder or for example a fever bloody. It can trigger the occurrence of detachment from the placenta.

Second, it is characterized by the presence of considerable bleeding from the vagina or the genitals. And typical placental abruption is usually the stomach is also very sick. If there is placenta previa there is usually more blood bleeding fresh color. But in general, there is not much pain compared to placental abruption.

Whatever causes third-trimester symptoms not to ignore. The bleeding condition was not normal. Unless you are about to give birth. Sometimes some moms are about to give birth there are contractions there is little blood coming out maybe we still think of bleeding during childbirth. But there is bleeding before 37 weeks or prematurely. Should go to the doctor to be checked. Are there any abnormal conditions in the placenta that cause bleeding?

If you have hypertension before delivery, what are the risks that can occur in your pregnancy?

So if for example, moms have hypertension which is marked by pressure blood is more than 140. Or below it is more than 90, we put it in the category it’s called hypertension in pregnancy.

When accompanied by a leak of protein in the urine we call proteinuria. Then moms are called experiencing preeclampsia conditions.

Preeclampsia or hypertension is dangerous in the third trimester. Because if we don’t handle it well it can happen complications in the mother, including seizures or eclampsia. Can experience stroke and blood clotting disorders, liver disorders, and in babies it can experience growth retardation. Then until the death of the fetus in the womb.

So if for example there are mothers who have hypertension, of course at any time at the time of control, his blood pressure will be checked by a doctor or by a midwife. It should be noted and if there is an increase in blood pressure should consult a gynecologist. And a thorough inspection that maybe moms will be asked for tighter control to be monitored his blood pressure. While being given blood pressure-lowering drugs by his doctor.

What risk factors cause hypertension?

In general, stress may affect. For example, anxiety or difficulty is sleeping. Then there is overactivity. May increase blood pressure.

But in this hypertension condition, we are measure it several times. It means that not from one measurement, the mom just arrived, then they were tired after taking public transportation, for example, the tension rises, we will definitely be asked to rest first and then we will re-check. If it is still high, then we say hypertension if it has been measured twice, the blood pressure is still high.

What are the steps to prevent hypertension in the third trimester?

To prevent it is actually best with regular control. To check blood pressure. Because we can’t prevent hypertension definitely by way of example sleeping a lot. Then reducing salt does not also reduce the risk of hypertension. Because hypertension can be said like there is a talent from the beginning of pregnancy that is only seen at the end of trimester 2 or during the third trimester.

So the point is good control and in general, it is a habit to live a healthy lifestyle of course. Not only for hypertension but for pregnancy health in general. Must eat ok then sleep enough, exercise enough that’s all take effect.

The thing that worries moms in the 3rd trimester is the rupture of the membranes, what are the symptoms that moms can feel?

If we talk membranes rupture. Then there is a rupture of the membranes, yes indeed time is before delivery. And there is premature or premature rupture of membranes labor or normal PROM.

Premature rupture of the membranes is the discharge of water that you may not be able to prevent cannot be held back. Suddenly came out a lot of water or may seep constantly. And it can be accompanied or not accompanied by contractions.

Well, if for example, something like that happens, it’s like peeing a lot, you can’t hold it. Yes, or panties suddenly wet. Immediately must be checked by medical personnel for checked whether it is indeed a ruptured membrane. Or maybe there is a condition others such as a lot of vaginal discharge. It must be distinguished.

What should you do if you experience premature rupture of membranes?

If to ask the amniotic fluid we cannot predict when it will occur. The point is that during normal conditions the membranes will rupture before delivery or at the time of delivery. If there is already a contraction, the membranes rupture, it is a normal rupture of membranes, any time before that we call it premature rupture of membranes or prom. If it occurs before 37 weeks then we call it premature rupture of membranes which is preterm or we also call it PPROM.

Another problem that can occur in the third trimester is premature birth. What are the causes?

So the causes of premature labor are many. So we divide by two prematurely it can be spontaneous premature. It means that because there are risk factors, for example, there is an infection. Or her belly is stretched big in a twin pregnancy.

The presence of amniotic fluid broke prematurely earlier. She was able to give birth spontaneously prematurely. So if for example, during pregnancy there is vaginal discharge, there is an infection urinary tract, there is inflammation of the gums.

It all had to be treated because the inflammatory condition and infection can be a risk factors for preterm labor.

And the second type of preterm labor is indeed done by the doctor. For example, there is a condition that the baby’s movement is reduced prematurely. Or their conditions of hypertension or preeclampsia that are severe enough to require him to born prematurely. The second, of course, there is a medical indication of Her doctor.

What are the criteria for preterm delivery?

So for preterm labor is birth before 37 weeks zero days. So before 37 weeks, we call it premature or preterm. After 37 weeks is enough time or we call it to term.

When to worry about fetal movement

How do we know the normal movement of the fetus in the womb?

So for fetal movement usually during the third trimester moms may have started to count the movements of the fetus by the doctor.

In general, the baby’s movement is once per hour. At least once per hour or about 10-12 times a day while you are awake. So if for example, the baby doesn’t move or for example, the movement is slightly reduced. Try rocking moms first, try sitting and holding her stomach to feel the fetal movement again.

Whenever moms feel the movement of the fetus is reduced or not as active as usual. Immediately go to the hospital to be examined by a doctor. So don’t hold back, don’t wait, especially if the baby hasn’t moved for a few days. Of course, we don’t want that.
