Why stir the fetus? How often stirs fetus? Deviations.

Why stir the fetus?First distinct fetal movements, as a rule, women feel closer to the second half of pregnancy, and multiparous feel them before mom expecting her first child. This is due to the fact that giving birth women already know what those feelings, and women, pregnant for the first time may initially confuse fetal movements while they are still not sufficiently intense to peristalsis, flatulence or abdominal muscle contractions. In addition, multiparous anterior abdominal wall is stretched and more sensitive. Fuller women feel fetal movements later than lean.

Thus, during the first pregnancy women feel first fetal movements, usually between 18 and 22 weeks (typically 20 weeks) and can sense motion multiparous future baby had 16 weeks. When expectant mothers begin to feel the movements of the kids, they have a lot of questions and doubts: how often should the baby move? intense enough, he moves? Keep in mind that every baby is different and develops at their own pace, and the rules relating to fetal movements are quite a wide range.

The nature of fetal movements

The first trimester. In the first trimester of pregnancy is most intensive growth of the unborn child. First, a group of cells divided rapidly grows and turns into an embryo, which is attached to the uterine wall and begins to grow, protected by the amniotic fluid, fetal membranes and the muscular wall of the uterus. Already 7-8 weeks during the ultrasound can be fixed, as the moving limb of the embryo. This is because his nervous system is already mature enough to conduct nerve impulses to the muscles. At this time the embryo is moving erratically, and his movement seemingly meaningless. And, of course, it is still too small, and the perturbation is too weak to be felt.

The second trimester. By 14-15 weeks of pregnancy, the fetus has grown and his limbs fully differentiated (acquired habitual to us the form and shape of the hands and feet), movement became intense and active. During this period, the baby floats freely in the amniotic fluid and is repelled from the walls of the uterus. Of course, he is still very small, so weak and the repulsion of their future mother is not feeling well.

By 18-20 weeks the fruit grows, and his movements are more pronounced. These first light touching pregnant woman is described as "fluttering butterfly", "swimming fish." With the growth of the fruit sensations become more distinct, and 20-22 weeks, as a rule, all pregnant women clearly feel the stirring of their child. In the second trimester, expectant mothers may feel "bumps" the kid in different parts of the stomach, because it is not yet to take a position in the womb, and it is enough room to roll and rotate in all directions.

So what do the children while in the womb? According to observations made by ultrasound, unborn children from there are many different occupations: they drink amniotic fluid (ultrasound seen as moves while the lower jaw), Pivot, Suchat legs, handles may bow legs, sorted and grab the umbilical cord. With increasing gestational age baby grows and becomes stronger. Mild tremors have replaced strong "kicks", and when the child turns over inside the uterus, outside much like the stomach changing its configuration. At the same time the mother can face the fact that her baby "hiccups". At the same time the woman feels like a child flinches at regular intervals. "Ikatelnye 'movement due to the fact that the fetus swallows amniotic fluid rapidly and the diaphragm begins to actively decline. Such movements are reflex diaphragm attempt to push the fluid. It is completely safe and is the norm. The absence of "Icahn" is also a variant of the norm.

Third trimester. By the third trimester, the fetus can freely flip and rotate and takes 30-32 weeks a permanent position in the uterus. In most cases it is head-down. This is called cephalic. If the baby is placed down the legs or buttocks, it is called breech. With cephalic presentation active perturbation felt in the upper abdomen, and if pelvic, on the contrary, they feel in the lower divisions. In the third trimester of pregnancy may also notice that your baby has a certain cycles of sleep and wakefulness. Expectant mother already knows what position the body when the baby is more convenient, because when my mother placed in an uncomfortable position for the child, he will definitely know about it stormy intense perturbations. When a pregnant lies on her back, the uterus exerts pressure on the blood vessels, particularly those for which the oxygenated blood to the uterus and to the fetus.

Closer to leave perturbations are felt mostly in the area to where the baby's limbs, mostly in the right upper quadrant (as in the vast majority of the fetus is head down and back to the left). Such shocks may even cause the expectant mother pain. However, if you lean forward slightly, then the baby will stop pushing so hard. This can be explained by the fact that in this situation the blood flow is improved for more oxygen to the fetus and it is "settles".

Shortly before the birth the baby's head (or buttocks, if the fetus is in the breech position) is pressed against the entrance to the pelvis. From the side it seems that the stomach "down." Pregnant note that before the birth of the fetus motor activity decreases. The reason is that at the end of pregnancy, the fetus is already so large that it is not enough space for active movement and if he "dies down." Some expectant mothers, by contrast, point out an increase of motor activity of the fetus as a mechanical limitation of motor activity of some kids, on the other hand, meet a violent nature of the movement.

How often stirs fetus?

Character fetal movement - a kind of "sensor" of pregnancy. By the way the intense and often felt quickening, can indirectly judge whether the pregnancy proceeds safely and how it feels to malysh.Priblizitelno to 26 weeks, the fetus is still quite small, expectant mother can celebrate long periods of time (up to days) between episodes of fetal movements. This does not mean that the baby is not moving as much time. Just a woman may not notice some perturbations, because the fruit is still not strong enough, and the expectant mother is not well learned to recognize their child's movements. But with 26-28 weeks, it is believed that the fruit must move 10 times every two to three hours. Obstetricians have developed a special "calendar fetal movements." During the day, the woman counts the number of times shifted her baby, and records the time when there was every tenth stirring. If pregnancy seems that the child has calmed down, you need to take a comfortable position, relax, eat something (it is believed that postprandial motor activity of the fetus grows), and for two hours notice how many times during this time the baby moved. If there are 7-10 perturbations, then nothing to worry about: all is well with the baby. If the mother does not feel perturbations baby for 2 hours, it should be like, or up and down the stairs, and then to lie. Typically, these activities help to intensify the fruit, and the stirring resumed. If this does not happen to be in the next 2-3 hours to see a doctor. The character of perturbations is a reflection of the functional state of the fetus, therefore it is necessary to listen to them. If the expectant mother has noticed that in recent days the child began to move less, you should also consult a doctor to see how the baby is feeling.
