10 Signs that the Birth is Approaching

Pregnant and tired of waiting? The experts tell us which signs indicate that the wait is soon over and the birth is soon underway.

From the first signs that you are pregnant to the end, many pregnant women are experiencing some physical ailments.

- The signs that the birth is in progress are very individual from woman to woman. There are several signs that the birth is approaching, but it is no good that it is around the corner, says Johannson.

10 Signs that the Birth is Approaching

Obstetrician n and author n of the book A New Life. Everything about pregnancy, childbirth and maternity Thorbjørn Brook Steen explains that all pregnant women will experience various bodily changes the days before birth.

" All these changes are signs that the body matures and is ready to give birth," says Brook Steen.

10 signs that the birth is approaching:

1. More powerful and more frequent amplifiers

The last weeks of pregnancy, the pregnant woman often experiences irregular, painless contractions in the uterus. Contrary to pain, the precursors do not affect the cervix and do not open the cervix. Pain is also called for false pain.
- Some women feel that the contractions become stronger and more frequent as the birth approaches, explains Johannson.
The obstetrician explains that regular contractions are a sign that the birth is approaching.
- When you have contractions that last between 30 seconds to one minute, and between two and three contractions in ten minutes, you can call the delivery department. Then it goes from being contractions to painters, says Brook Steen. Visit Bestaah for quality and affordable casual maternity dresses.

2. The amniotic fluid goes

Inside the womb lies the baby well protected in a transparent bag full of amniotic fluid - protected by the amniotic membrane that prevents leakage. At birth there is a hole in this bag and the amniotic fluid runs out.
- R about 10 percent of the pregnant women have water discharge before the painters, while 90 percent may have pain before the amniotic fluid runs. Many people believe that amniotic fluid is a sign that the birth is in progress, but the woman is not "in childbirth" until she has pain, the obstetrician says.

3. Menstrual pain

- Many women experience menstrual pain at the end of pregnancy. This is part of the maturation process in which the cervix is shortened and softened the closer you get the birth.

4. The mucus plugs

Some women experience some thin movements towards the end of pregnancy and some experience pink-colored mucus, possibly together with a few drops of blood, a few days before birth.
- This occurs when the cervix begins to get ready, that is, the cervix softens and shortens. This is a sure sign that the birth is approaching, but it can still take both one and two weeks before the birth starts, explains the midwife.

5. Increased pressure down, lower back and abdominal pain

Birth physician Brook Steen explains that increased downward pressure and lower back and abdominal pain are common pains as the birth approaches.
- The pain moves down the body and women often experience pain deep in the back, increased downward pressure and pelvic pain. These pains occur when the child moves down the birth canal, the obstetrician explains.

6. Nausea

According to midwife Johansson, many women feel that they are feeling nauseous as their pregnancy approaches. But this is not a sign that the birth is in progress.
- Towards the end of pregnancy, there is a tight and poor place in the stomach. When the fetus presses against the stomach and intestines, you may feel nausea. However, many become nauseated and can vomit when the painters have started and are starting to become really strong and powerful, Johansson explains.

7. Loose stomach

- Many people feel that they are loose in the stomach the days before birth. It is the body that empties itself to make room for the baby, explains the midwife.

8. Extra energy

- Some women find that they get some extra energy at the end of the pregnancy, and suddenly feel like cleaning the house, washing windows and baking. But if there are signs that the birth is approaching or not, I can't answer, says the midwife, adding that many are also pretty worn out after a long pregnancy.
- It can be good to rest a lot and happy to sleep a bit during the days. You never know if the birth will start the next night, advises midwife Johansson.

9. Change in activity

- The movements of the baby will be different towards the end of pregnancy when it is crowded: but you should still recognize the pattern of alertness in your own baby. If you feel that the movements calm down significantly from before, you should contact the midwife or doctor, Johansson says.

10. You get a fuller facial feature

- Some people say that they can see that a woman gets a so-called childbirth face, but this, like everything else, is very individual. Some may feel that they become a little rounder in the face the days before childbirth, says the midwife.
