Scramble represents a reduction of the walls of the uterus for a few seconds, increasing and relaxing the tension in the abdomen, which at such moments, some women think of the stone. The training contractions, or Braxton Hicks, may start from the 11th week of pregnancy and last until its end.
To distinguish false labor from childbirth, remember some of the characteristic features that you can define yourself:
weakness; indolence; irregular; short, significant period of time between contractions; no rhythm; the termination when you change the position (to turn from side to side, stand, walk, etc.).
It is difficult to establish the nature of the fights just feels, so take the clock and track the duration of each bout and the interval between them. Take a warm, but not hot bath or shower: Braxton Hicks contractions subside, and generic increase. Drink water or tea, take a walk in the fresh air: the training bout will calm down.
If Braxton Hicks deliver you inconvenience and discomfort in the abdomen, take Nospanum or candles with papaverine: they reduce the increased tone of the uterus and shown to pregnant women in any trimester. Against the background of their reception false labor will stop, but the generic will develop.
The most reliable criterion of distinction of training fights from the real thing – the opening of the cervix, but it can be defined by just a physical examination. If the nature of the fights makes you doubt, visit an obstetrician-gynecologist, watching your pregnancy.
If you don't feel training fights, don't worry: this is normal as the body of each woman is individual. In addition, they can manifest in various ways, for example, pain can arise in the abdomen and in the lumbar region.
Remember that Braxton Hicks – normal physiological process, and treat them calmly. But if they bother you, consult a doctor to take care of oneself and prevent premature birth.
In the case where the intensity of the contractions increases, they become painful, regular intervals and at least 10 minutes, spotting, pain in the sacrum and loins, go to the hospital: chances are, you have to start at birth, and your baby will soon be born.
