Will My Doctor Induce Me At 37 Weeks If I Have Irritable Uterus
I had an irritable uterus throughout my entire1st pregnancy. I was just wondering how likely it is to happen again with the irritable uterus?
No: An irritable uterus is one that can be contracting, but is not the same as preterm labor. Preterm labor means the cervix is opening and that is threatening for you and the baby. Preterm contractions are when the uterus contracts but the cervix doesn't open. It can be VERY hard to distinguish the 2 from patient perspective (I had them same in my pregnancy). See doctor or L&D! if worried though! ...Read more
22 weeks pregnant, emergent cerclage at 21 weeks.Almost whole pregnancy when i change positions i often feel tightening.problm?is it irritable uterus?
Close monitoring: An emergency cerclage is an extremely high risk procedure. Very close monitoring by your doctor is warranted. Please clarify the plan of care with your Obgyn as to how you should proceed. Often these cases are managed with bedrest at home or in the hospital. Serial sonographic cervical lengths are done. Sometimes medications are used to calm the uterus. ...Read more
I get Braxton Hicks contractions when I bend over... is that a symptom of an irritable uterus? They occur very often although without a set frequency.
What is an irritable uterus and how its contractions are different from Braxton Hicks contractions? Can either efface or dilate my cervix? I'm 33w5d.
Same contractions: Braxton Hicks contractions indicate the level of sensitivity(irritability) of the uterus to the agent(oxytocin) that can cause labor. The difference is the frequency, intervals, and duration of the contractions that will eventually be progressive enough to produce changes in the cervix-AKA active labor. ...Read more
30 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby. Loose stools for 2 weeks and feel like I need to go all the time. Also have irritable uterus should I be concerned?
Taking care w/ baby: Given that you have a baby-on-board, I would be proactive about getting you treated. You should go to the doc and get a diagnosis for the diarrheal illness. With some history, exam and lab tests, there should be some 'road map' to follow. Pregnancy causes your immune system to weaken, and you don't want things to get out of hand. I hope you can get seen TODAY. Take care. ...Read more
Small pieces of mucus plug lost, diarrhea, increased intensity of contractions (diagnosed w irritable uterus), 35 weeks. early signs of labor?
5 more weeks: it is not uncommon for attraction to begin starting at 32 weeks and they may not be a true sign of labor, rather the might just be practice contractions or whatare called Braxton Hicks contractions. Just because you lose some mucus, does not mean you will go into labor because your cervix will keep on creating mucus. call the hospital though, for regular painful contractions or loss of fluid. ...Read more
Indication: The key for induction of labor is indication. If there is no obstetrical indication, hospitals that adhere to the "Keystone Measures" will not permit induction before 39 completed weeks.
