Therefore the most correct will be to address to the gynecologist who supervises your pregnancy. Only the doctor will be able to estimate correctly your condition and to allay all fears by performing diagnostics. The doctor can also prescribe the correct treatment when necessary. It is necessary to know that hard stomach, which is periodically observed during pregnancy, might indicate uterus hypersthenia, and it is pregnancy pathology as is well-known to many women.

Usually uterus hypersthenia is faced by future mothers during the second and the third trimester of pregnancy. pains of various etymology arising around uterus. Sometimes these symptoms demonstrate just habitual tiredness and all that is necessary in this case is to spend more time in horizontal position and to have a rest. But if pains have periodic character and don t pass after long rest, then it is already an alarming call for the pregnant woman that it is necessary to visit the doctor. At hypersthenia uterus begins to contract often much earlier the necessary term and it may lead to miscarriage.


Pregnant women who have such diagnosis in the medical record need more attentive supervision by the gynecologist. Early contractions of uterus and its hyper tone lead to disturbance of blood circulation, and also to precocious aging of placenta and as a result, can provoke oxygen starvation in fetus hypoxia. Women can have different causes of hypersthenia. The main of them are: various stresses which accompany the woman in much of everyday life, including pregnancy period;
hormonal failures, bad immunity, endocrine disorders; underdeveloped uterus. Excessive physical activities can also provoke hypersthenia of uterus. Therefore if you want to give birth to the healthy child in time, you must avoid excessive physical activities, such as power trainings with lifting of weights, running, fast bicycling, and so on. Moderately active sports are perfectly suitable for pregnant women. Ii might be, for example, swimming or yoga for pregnant women. Remember that physical activity provokes uterus contractions and brings it into superfluous tonus. Don t ever tire yourself out by getting overstrained.


If during training you feel discomfort, it is worth stopping. The most correct in this situation will be to consult with the doctor. He will make the decision on what type of physical activity you are allowed to carry out. And in the case of pathologies, sports activities may be forbidden for the pregnant woman at all. Timely visiting an antenatal clinic will help you to bear and give birth to the healthy child. That is definatly Braxton hicks contractions. It is your uterus practicing getting ready for labor. It's happened to me with all 4 babies. This is baby#5, haven't got em yet but I'm only 18wks. I know I started to get them before 24wks with my last baby. I actually carried him all the way to my scheduled c-section date. It really helps to drink a glass of water they say to ly down on your left side. The left side is better because for some reason ther's more blood oxygen going to the baby. If they continue and get closer together stronger, you might wanna start timming them on paper if they are consistant, you need to call your Dr. just to make sure it's nothing more.


With my third, after I hit 28wks I kept going into preterm labor. I really didn't feel it everytime, but these contractions would get stronger closer together, I would call the Dr. go into the hospital and yup I was in early labor! They would give me shots of turbutiline, they'd stop. I'd stay in the hospital for 24hrs for observation and as long as everything was fine, i'd go home. They also have this test, it's like a pap smear it takes an hr. to get the results and it will tell your Dr. if you're gonna go into preterm labor within 14days. I carried that baby until 35wks, he wanted out. He was small 4lbs,14oz he was born with underdeveloped lungs, so they had to transfer him to a childrens hospital about an hr away. they gave him 2 doses of a medicine called surfactant(it helps the lungs develop) he only needed 2 doses and they are aloud four. It is a natural substance that is produced in utero at the end of preganacy. I took him home when he was 2wks old he's never had any develomental delays. Don't wanna alrm you, just keep track of them as you get further along. Good Luck!
