Question: Hi Mam, I am 7 months pregnant and I have lot of swelling in my feet what precautions need to be taken care of?
Yes dear its common I had it 5 months onwards.
Keep hydrated, elevate feet while sitting or sleeping, get up and walk for few mins after every hour, daily massage (light) of legs below knees by someone or buy a foot massager, while sitting constantly wiggle the toes. It's all about improving circulation!
Hope this helps!
Question: My fluid level is very high 20...from 6th july I will enter in 8th month.. what precautions to be taken..my tummy is little down side...
Answer: Hello! In most cases, polyhydramnios or excess amniotic fluid is harmless, but it does have the potential to cause serious pregnancy complications. But in severe cases, there are certain risks, including:
Excess fetal growth
Placental abruption (the placenta detaching from the wall of the uterus before you give birth)
Umbilical cord prolapse (the cord falling out of the vagina before the baby)
In such case try to take rest as much as possible.
If you feel breathless:
try and avoid climbing stairs as much as possible
do household chores in small bursts, and take your time
if help is offered, accept it, and get plenty of rest
It may be that you have heartburn because your uterus is pushing against your stomach. To ease this:
eat small amounts regularly
try not to lie down straight after a meal
don't eat just before going to bed
don't eat or drink anything which makes your heartburn worse, such as spicy food
try to sleep propped up in bed
ask your doctor for an antacid prescription
Polyhydramnios will probably make you feel anxious. It may also make you feel on the large side. But there are ways to lessen your anxiety:
Gather as much information as you can, as early as you can, at your antenatal classes.
Find enjoyable distractions. If you're too self-conscious about your size to go out, invite friends over, or catch up on DVDs.
If you have polyhydramnios and notice new symptoms, or if your existing symptoms become worse, call your doctor or go to your nearest hospital immediately.
Question: Haii now I am 8th month pregnancy last week I went monthly checkup in scanning report doctor told me I have posterior low lying placenta what is mean by low laying placenta what precaution should be taken plz tell me
Answer: Even at this stage, the placenta may still move up in time for your baby to be born. If the placenta covers your cervix at the end of your pregnancy, your baby's exit route through your vagina will be blocked. The placenta may be partly covering your cervix or completely covering it.Your care will also vary depending on whether you've had any bleeding or not. If you've had no bleeding, you'll probably be able to stay at home. You may be advised to avoid having sex for the rest of your pregnancy. If you start bleeding before you're due to go to hospital, go straight to hospital so that the bleeding can be monitored. When it stops, you may be asked to stay in until your baby is ready to be born. If the bleeding doesn't stop, or you go into premature labor your baby will need to be born by c section.
You can't do anything to change the position of the placenta. But you can make sure that you stay healthy and well. Eat plenty of good nutrition particularly those that are rich in iron. .
