If you have received a recommendation from an experienced obstetrician that you should go to the hospital in advance, the best solution is to follow the advice of a professional. Apparently, he has some reasons for such decisions.
However, if you decide to trust only your own feelings, then it's still not necessary to delay with the appearance in the hospital, especially if the symptoms of close births are already clearly pronounced.
It is quite likely a rapid labor activity, and this can happen even with the woman giving birth for the first time, and one should not allow this important process to occur in the vehicle.
General signs of the genus
A sign, for example, is that the breathing of a pregnant woman is noticeably relieved, but the pressure on the bladder and rectum is increased, urination is much more frequent, the stomach is clearly lowered, indicating that the baby's head has dropped into a small pelvis. Although this occurs a few weeks before the onset of contractions, but this is to some extent the landmark of the time when it is better to go to the hospital.
Among similar signs are mucosal and leucorrhoea that appear on the underwear, the release of gelatinous cork begins. can be observed and the discharge of blood mucus due to the separation of the cervical closure of the uterus, although a small part of it. The woman starts to be pursued with sleep disorders and anxious sensations.
Preparatory fights can be observed already in three days are observed. They are light aching pains that are felt in the pelvic area and lower back.
They are called "false" fights, and their difference from the present lies in the absence of a clear periodicity, while a decrease in the time interval is not yet observed, even on the contrary, the intervals between these fights can become larger. When walking, these "false" fights usually disappear, the same happens when you change the position of the body or receive a warm shower.
When to go to the hospital?
The time of the trip to the hospital is determined by real contractions. Initially, they are light and short, come on regularly, but over time they lengthen and intensify. If the amniotic fluid has not passed, then at the first birth, you can still stay at home until the fights begin to happen with a frequency of ten minutes.
However, with repeated delivery, you should not pull. At the very beginning of the bouts should be sent to the hospital. And if the waters are gone, then in the absence of labor in the hospital, it is necessary to go now.
There are two signs indicating when to go to the hospital as soon as possible. If a woman has amniotic fluid left, and if there are actually strong contractions. Duration of fights - no more than one minute, and the interval between fights - no more than seven minutes.
To make a trip to the hospital, it is preferable to call an ambulance, and personal transport here is not the best solution. Especially, it is relevant in the city, where there is a great risk of getting into the railway traffic jam. Estimate the route mentally, and try to avoid the passage of railway crossings, which can also be "stuck". In addition, in the "first aid" there is also a professional physician who is trained to take delivery in an emergency situation. There is also all the necessary medicines and equipment designed for such cases. No matter how enthusiastic a loving husband may be, he is unlikely to be able to provide you with the same help. After childbirth on the road, this is really a critical situation, and emergency doctors are specially trained and, working with a woman giving birth, they will not lose their heads.
