Causes of suspended belly

There are actually many shapes of pregnant belly, including big and small, pointed and round. Some people have very high pregnant belly, and some people have very low pregnant belly. Many people also use the shape of their pregnant belly to guess the gender of their baby. There is a kind of pregnant belly that is so big and pointed that people who don’t know it are surprised when they see it, and some people even envy it. Seeing this big and pointed pregnant belly, I felt that I was definitely going to give birth to a big fat boy, or maybe twins! Seeing Ya Ya\’s mother say this, you must have guessed that things are not that simple! That’s right! First of all, the gender of the fetus has nothing to do with the size and shape of the pregnant belly. Secondly, this shape of the pregnant belly does not necessarily mean twins, but may cause pregnant women to be unable to give birth naturally. This kind of big and pointed belly is often called \”floating belly\” because it looks exaggerated, as if it is floating in the air. However, this is not a professional medical term. What\’s going on with the suspended belly? The characteristics of the suspended belly are very obvious. It looks like a \”cone\” from the side, which is very different from the normal hemispherical pregnant belly. There is almost no flesh on the waist of the pregnant mother, and the entire belly is forward, and the pregnancy cannot even be seen from the back. As the baby continues to grow, the mother\’s abdominal muscles will stretch. However, due to factors such as excessive weight during pregnancy, large fetal development, and excessive amniotic fluid, the two rectus muscles in the middle of the pregnant mother\’s abdomen are abnormally separated. At this time, the pregnant mother\’s belly will appear particularly pointed and protruding. To give a simple example, there are gaps between muscles. Imagine your husband\’s 6-pack abs (if you don\’t have one, just imagine the male god\’s), is there a concave line in the middle? And when a woman\’s belly gets bigger day by day, the gaps between muscles may also be \”stretched\” open. This situation itself is normal, but when the distance between the abdominal muscles is greater than the normal distance, the shape of the pregnant mother\’s belly will undergo this wonderful change. Is it difficult to give birth naturally with a \”suspended belly\”? Although in most cases now doctors will first consider allowing mothers to give birth naturally, doctors usually recommend caesarean section for pregnant mothers with this kind of belly shape, mainly due to these two considerations: 1. It is difficult for the fetus to enter the pelvis, which is usually found close to the expected date of delivery. The pregnant mother\’s belly moves obviously downward. This is mainly because the fetus is slowly descending into the basin in preparation for delivery. However, for pregnant mothers with a \”suspended belly\”, it is difficult for the fetus to enter the pelvis. On the one hand, if the pregnant mother has too much amniotic fluid, it will cause the fetus\’s center of gravity to be unstable. On the other hand, if the fetus is too large, it is also prone to cephalopelvic asymmetry. The fetus entering the pelvis is a signal of normal delivery. If it is delayed and unable to enter the pelvis, the labor time will be greatly increased if the baby is forced to have a normal delivery. Sometimes it may be necessary to use forceps or even undergo an antegrade cesarean section to deliver the fetus. 2 Pregnant mothers can’t exert themselves. As mentioned above, the direct cause of the floating belly is due to the separation of the vertical muscles of the abdomen, which makes it impossible to support the fetus, making the pregnant belly look convex and pointed. Separated abdominal muscles will not only cause lower back pain, pelvic floor dysfunction (causing incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse), but also greatly weaken the strength of the abdomen. Not only will daily activities and labor be limited, but also during childbirth. It’s also hard to work hard.Naturally, high-intensity physical work such as vaginal delivery is not suitable for this type of pregnant mother. How to avoid \”suspended belly\”? In order to avoid this situation, pregnant mothers should remember the following: 1. Control weight: If a pregnant mother cannot control her weight with a balanced diet, she is very likely to have an oversized fetus or even a macrosomia. If it is too large, it will put a greater burden on the abdominal muscles, and it is easy to cause abnormal separation of the abdominal muscles. 2. Regular exercise: Exercise can not only prevent abnormal separation of abdominal muscles, but also help correct this condition. The abdominal muscles have been better exercised and strengthened, and they will naturally be able to better adapt and adjust to the growing pregnancy belly. In addition to regular walking, swimming, yoga and other exercises, special attention should be paid to pelvic floor muscle training, such as Kegel exercises. It is recommended that pregnant mothers continue to practice during pregnancy and postpartum. What does the shape of a pregnant belly mean? When many pregnant mothers are concerned about the shape and size of their pregnant belly, they are basically researching the gender of the baby. But in fact, the shape and size of the pregnant belly can provide intuitive feedback on many problems. Mothers, stop focusing on baselessly guessing the gender of your baby! The shape of the pregnant belly is not static, and may also change due to factors such as the position of the fetus and the amount of amniotic fluid. Some pregnant belly are normal, but some may also indicate the existence of certain risks, so looking at the pregnant belly is also a must for mothers. Class. 1. Small pregnant belly: A small pregnant belly may be caused by oligohydramnios or insufficient amniotic fluid. You can check it through ultrasound. If there is nothing abnormal after the examination, pregnant mothers don’t have to worry. Because the average index of amniotic fluid in normal pregnancy is higher in the second trimester and relatively lower in the third trimester. Therefore, the size of the pregnant belly will also undergo some small changes according to changes in the amniotic fluid, which is normal. 2. Large pregnancy belly: If the pregnancy belly is large or growing rapidly. On the one hand, it may be a normal manifestation of some multiparous women. It may also be a sign of polyhydramnios and an oversized fetus. 3. High pregnancy belly: Usually pregnant mothers who are tall or exercise regularly, have good muscle tone and abdominal muscles, will have a relatively high pregnancy belly. In most cases, this is a normal phenomenon, and regular prenatal check-ups are enough. 4. Low pregnancy belly: Generally in the third trimester of pregnancy, you will find that the pregnancy belly moves downward, indicating that the baby may be about to start. However, if the pregnant belly moves downward but there is no sign of delivery, it may cause pressure on the pregnant mother\’s lower back and pelvic pain. At this time, you should always pay attention to the changes in the body and seek help from a doctor if necessary. 5. Wide pregnant belly: This situation occurs more often in twins, but it may also be due to an abnormality of the fetus. The fetus is almost lying horizontally in the pregnant mother\’s belly. Abdominal color ultrasound is still needed to rule out this possibility. Because sometimes pregnant women who are overweight may also cause their pregnancy belly to look wider. In addition to knowing the meaning of different shapes and sizes of the pregnant belly, pregnant mothers should also observe the changes in the pregnant belly at any time to facilitate the understanding of the baby\’s development in the belly. Pregnant mothers can compare the development of the pregnant belly and the fetus according to their gestational age. Oh the size.
