Signs Of Preeclampsia And How To Relieve Constipation.

According to oxfordastronomy , during 26 weeks of pregnancy your blood pressure may be increasing slightly, returning to regular intervals prior to pregnancy. (From 22 to 24 weeks, blood pressure dropped a bit.)Although preeclampsia occurs mostly in the last quarter, this is a good time to raise awareness of the signs of this dangerous situation that occurs in 3 to 7% of all pregnancies. Among the signs that should be aware of include the hands and face swollen, a sudden increase in weight (due to fluid retention), blurred vision, seeingspots, sudden severe headache or persistent or pain in the upper abdomen. To track hypertension or protein in urine in pregnancy, routine queries the doctor controls the existence of pre-eclampsia, but contact them immediately if you have any of these symptoms between appointments. Early identification of preeclampsia is essential for your health and the baby. Suffering from constipation? This is a common complaint. Half of pregnant women feel a slowdown of intestinal operation. Theorigin of this congestion is the slowing of the digestive system and the compression of the weight of the uterus on the rectum. Iron supplements may also contribute to the problem.


What are Braxton Hicks contractions?

Braxton Hicks contractions are just a version of the pregnant uterine contractions involuntary light that most women feel in daily life, according to Dr. Mark Taslimi, professor of obstetrics and Gynecology at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Involuntary muscles such as the uterus, heart and intestines contract regularly without the person even realizes. When the uterus gets larger, the contractions are more obvious, given that move a greater muscle mass. Unless the contractions become frequent and occur at regular intervals, there is no real reason for concern.

What They Say

“When I tell people how long I’m pregnant, they say, ‘ My God, alone? ‘ I had evenasked me if I was going to have twins! “— Catherine

“Sometimes I keep the blah-blah-blah romantic around the pregnancy – everyone says that pregnant women are beautiful, that this is the most magical time of my life, etc. I’ve never felt less attractive. I keep hearing about women who ‘ love ‘ beingpregnant and I can’t help being perplexed. I don’t believe I’m the only woman in the world who isn’t exactly loving the experience. “— Laura
