CAUSE TAKE BED REST DURING PREGNANCY

CAUSE TAKE BED REST DURING PREGNANCY
Illustration
In Pregnancy, every woman want everything going to be normal and healthy. The majority of pregnancy women could do all daily activities without worry to get problem for the pregnancy. For new pregnancy, some woman still doing they dialy activities, depend of what the activity, this could make some problem. The third trimester of pregnancy woman have more percentage go into pre-term labor. There are also some complications for pregnancy woman for higher rist for preterm birth:

  • Previous pre-term birth
  • Dilated cervix
  • Expecting twins, triplets or more
  • Preeclampsia
  • Abnormally shaped uterus
  • Preexisting medical conditions
  • Placental problems
  • Problems with the amniotic sac or amniotic fluid
  • Previous miscarriages or abortions
  • Infections

If pregnant woman develop a high-risk complication and signs of possible pre-term labor, such as a dilated cervix, your doctor may request that you stay in bed. The bed rest can be ‘partial’, it mean you need to spend part of each day laying down and resting. You would need to reduce the activities and take it easy. Or bed rest can be ‘complete‘, it mean you need to be laying down at bed for all times. The complete bed rest can even mean hospitalization but this also can be done at home. Your doctors also will recommend total, therapeutic bed rest, because it has several specific benefits.

Total bed rest decreases pressure of baby on the cervix and reduces cervical stretching, which may cause premature contractions and miscarriage. It also increases blood flow for the placenta, helping the baby receive the maximum nutrition and oxygen possible. This is particularly important if the baby is not growing as rapidly as should be. Bed rest can sometimes result in improved blood pressure and decreased swelling. Laying down, particularly on your left side, improves blood circulation to your heart, uterus and to your baby.

Kind of Bed Rest

There are several kind and gradation degrees of bed rest type, so it is important to know what your practitioner means by bed rest

  • A decrease in your activities. This might mean taking a break from exercising or sex for a few weeks.
  • Taking a break. With this type of bed rest, women need to be able to sit down and rest. This might involve taking a leave from work or getting backup help with the care of children at home.
  • A few hours of bed rest each day. Resting on your side increases the blood flow to the placenta, which may be beneficial if a baby isn't growing well.
  • "House arrest". A stricter type of bed rest, where women are essentially confined to the home, with activities limited to puttering around and mostly resting. I call this level of bed rest "house arrest."
  • Strict bed rest is prescribed in some cases, which essentially means lying down all day. Getting up might be limited to going to the bathroom, taking a shower, and preparing a simple meal. The strictest forms of bed rest are usually done in the hospital, with a bedpan instead of bathroom privileges and all personal care provided by the hospital staff.

While bed rest, your muscles will lose tone and your joints may begin to ache. Try to change position, from one side to the other, every hour or two. This will decrease discomfort in your hips and lower back. You may find it make more comfortable using pillows to support the abdomen, back, head and shoulders. Do not lie flat on your back, except for short stretches to ease cramped muscles. Limited the exercise in bed also will help your muscle tone and circulation, but do not start doing sit-ups or stretches before talk and discuss with your doctor.

Whether you are restricted to bed rest at home or in the hospital, you should arrange your room so that all of your necessities are within arm’s length. If at home, set up one room where you can rest undisturbed for as long as you are restricted or confined to your bed. Organize everyday necessities within reach as well as amenities that will keep you occupied and help make your days more pleasant.

This is a good time to catch up on letters, reading or putting your photos into albums. Take up a hobby such as knitting, embroidery, or drawing. Organizing a daily schedule , without being too rigid, may also help you feel better psychologically and physically. Divide each day into scheduled periods: a time for telephoning your office, speaking to friends or relatives, reading, watching television, paying bills, and being with your other children. Take pictures and keep a diary, because someday you’ll want to retell the story of this incredible pregnancy when your baby is old enough to understand.
