Filed under: O&G — Tags: — admin @ 10:00 am

Hope you have enjoyed the funny waxing story that we had posted earlier. If not this is Funny Waxing Story.

Today we are going to discuss a very important topic.

Working out is good for everybody. It is very much advisable. I am yet to face any particular side effect of exercise or any contraindication of exercise.

So we can safely tell anybody to do some physical exercise. But the problem arises when some one is in a very special situation. The situation that we are talking are evident form my title of the post.

Hence it is quite natural for any expectant mother who is undergoing pregnancy to be apprehensive of the exercises that she is going to do during this time. Moderate amount of aerobic exercise can be helpful in dealing with the insomnia during pregnancy.

First and foremost it can be safely stated that physical activity in terms of aerobic exercise can definitely be done. Of course the strenuous heavy exercises  are to be discouraged due to the potential fetus-maternal risks.

Hence it can be summarized that the pregnant woman needs to do moderate amount of exercise that too aerobic ones during pregnancy. Physical activity is needed.

Of course pregnant women who are having medical contraindications should not do exercise.

One of the obstetrical contraindication of exercise is ante partum hemorrhage (APH) . In case of APH doctors advise to take complete bed rest. Even hospitalization is warranted.

Hence in summary, for the healthy growth of the baby and mother aerobic exercises under the guidance of qualified personnel brings about desired effect. But as with any other medical condition this can very well lead to catastrophic outcomes if sufficient care on the part of doctors and the pregnant lady herself has not been taken.

Insomnia In Early Pregnancy

Filed under: O&G — Tags: — admin @ 10:00 am

In our previous discussion about pregnancy we dealt about certain signs and symptoms of pregnancy. In this article we are going to learn and discuss about insomnia in early pregnancy times.

It is quite a normal incidence. It is quite bothersome for the early expectant mother, but to know how to get rid of it we have to learn the causes of it.

1.Frequent urge of urination

This is well known fact that due to increase in the size of the uterus the bladder gets compressed. Hence the capacity of the bladder gets quite small. Hence the frequency of urination increases.

This typically happens in the first trimester. Which is about 10 weeks after fertilization and around 12 weeks after last menstrual period. After 12 weeks of last menstrual period the enlarging uterus becomes a  pelvic organ and this urge and increase in frequency stops. The enlarging uterus is not problem any more. The fundal or upper part of uterus grows more hence bulk of the uterus goes towards the belly button.

Solution: Non actually. It will go after 12 weeks.

2.Constipation and Heart burn.

Digestive system slows down. Food remains for a longer period in the stomach hence reflux occurs which leads to heart burn.

Solution : Eat small meals frequently. Take antacids after consulting your physician.

The list is long. But I had to cut short.

Take Care.

Pregnancy Symptoms Week by Week

Filed under: O&G — Tags: — admin @ 9:09 am

For pregnant ladies, having a weekly guide may be a nice tool to watch the baby’s growth. This often typically helps in determining the various symptoms that happen at positive pregnancy stages.

Since the baby’s growth manifests from week to week, it might be a sensible guide for each expectant mother. The whole pregnancy is split into three trimesters created of forty weeks. Pregnant women would possibly be guided by week knowledge on how the baby should seem at completely different points. If you noticed that there is something wrong on what the baby must be like, you must immediately consult a doctor to administer the required medical attention. Let’s take a peek at some major changes that you must expect from your baby throughout the forty weeks of pregnancy.

Primarily, the first pair of weeks count the period from your last menstruation to the actual conception. The conception refers back to the time when the sperm was prepared to fertilize the egg. When the third week ends, the fertilized egg becomes an embryo. Meanwhile by the fourth week, nausea could begin to manifest. The fifth week signals the formation of the baby’s organs, when heart beats of the baby begin. By week seven, the dimensions of the baby doubles. On the ninth week, the gender of the baby will be determined already.

The second trimester, meanwhile, covers weeks fifteen to twenty six of the pregnancy. The organs improved. By week seventeen, the baby starts to blink and swallow. This stage is when the eyes and ears begin to function well. During the last trimester the senses of the baby develop. By week twenty seven, the baby can have a heap of movements at intervals the wombs. By week thirty four, the baby starts to develop their immune system. Most babies are born during the forty week, however the number might extend for up to two weeks.
