What causes premature birth? How to prevent premature birth in late pregnancy

Nan Nan is the export manager of our company and is 28 weeks pregnant. On this day, she was receiving foreign customers in the company as usual. During the meeting, she felt that her lower abdomen was repeatedly softening and hardening, and she also had bouts of back pain. She thought she was busy in the meeting and was too tired, so she didn\’t take it to heart and just wanted to end the meeting early. Finally, the meeting was over. At this time, Nannan\’s soreness started to attack every ten minutes. Seeing her uncomfortable appearance, an experienced colleague reminded her, was she about to give birth? Nan Nan said, \”No, I\’m only 28 weeks pregnant?\” \”Is she going to give birth prematurely?\” Before Nan Nan could react, her colleague immediately drove her to the hospital. When she arrived at the hospital, Nannan\’s cervix had already been dilated eight times and she was about to give birth. In less than an hour, the baby was born, but weighed only two pounds and could only be placed in an incubator. Now the baby has been in the incubator for 5 weeks and has not yet reached the discharge standard. The cost is also very expensive, the most expensive one day costs 9,800 yuan. Premature babies not only cost a lot of money, but also require extra effort in their later upbringing. It can be said that premature birth is very harmful to the fetus itself and the family. Therefore, it is important to prevent premature birth during pregnancy. Some friends may ask, what counts as premature birth? Generally, the birth of a fetus between 28 weeks and 37 weeks of gestation is called premature birth. A baby born before 28 weeks is called a miscarriage, and a baby born after 37 weeks can be considered a full-term baby. So, how to prevent premature birth in the third trimester of pregnancy? It is important to do the following things well. It is very important to have prenatal check-ups on time. I remember when I was pregnant, I went to the hospital to set up a check-up, and the doctor told me to have prenatal check-ups on time, especially in the third trimester. After successfully passing several important prenatal check-ups in the first and second trimester, it is not that you can feel at ease. After 28 weeks of pregnancy, you should have prenatal check-ups every two weeks, and after 36 weeks, you should have prenatal check-ups every one week. Expectant mothers should not take prenatal check-ups lightly. Although each check-up is just a simple routine, if there are no problems, it’s okay. If there are problems, it’s life-saving straw. Pay attention to a balanced diet and avoid harmful foods. Expectant mothers should maintain a balanced diet and should eat more protein-rich foods, eat more fruits and vegetables, and drink more water. Improper diet can easily induce uterine contractions and lead to premature birth. Such as: tobacco, alcohol, coffee, longan, cold food, spicy food, etc. For the health of your fetus, just bear with it as much as you want. Do not touch or stimulate the abdomen. Do not go to crowded places or go out during rush hours. There is a risk of falling if someone touches you. Especially when going up the stairs, you must pay attention to walking steadily step by step and do not pick up objects or high objects to avoid touching your abdomen. If you accidentally fall, you must go to the hospital for a check-up in time to make sure the fetus is safe. Sometimes a fall will cause labor pains, but it will not cause miscarriage or premature birth. If there are no abnormalities after 2 to 3 days, everything is fine. This is because the amniotic fluid plays a role in relieving emergencies and protecting the fetus. Do not let the abdomen become tense for a long time. Standing or squatting for a long time will increase the abdominal pressure and put pressure on the uterus, which may also cause premature birth. Especially expectant mothers with uterine insufficiency must pay attention. Pay attention to rest and maintain a happy mood. Mental stress such as uneasiness during the first delivery can also cause premature birth. Pay attention to keeping a happy spirit. Mild fatigue can also causeFor premature birth, expectant mothers should pay attention to avoid lack of sleep and excessive fatigue. In short, sleep well and maintain a calm and calm mind to welcome the arrival of your baby. Conclusion: Finally, I would like to remind expectant mothers that in the third trimester of pregnancy, if you notice abdominal pain, discharge, bleeding, etc., seek medical attention immediately. This is also an effective way to prevent premature birth. In short, if you do the above five points, smart babies will choose to come out to meet their parents at full term.
