Migrated pregnancy

What you need to know about a delayed pregnancy?

A pregnant pregnancy is what?

If the woman's uterus is immature at the term of 40 weeks, in most cases it is possible to talk about pregnancy overdose. Migrate is called pregnancy, which lasts 42 or more weeks. That is, as soon as the pregnancy period "exceeds two weeks more than the normal period, you have to resort to certain measures. According to the existing statistics, the number of pregnancies transferred ranges from 4% to 14% of all.

Babies born after the due date have clear signs of overripe. The skin of these children is usually wrinkled and dehydrated, the fingernails are too long, on the body - the absence of original grease and a thin fat layer. In almost all cases, the patient has hard cranial bones, as well as a narrow fontanel. Since all this time the fetus is growing, and the place is getting smaller, it becomes cramped and it often turns out that these children have a "studded" ear or "unfolded" foot. During the ultrasound examination, the signs of placenta aging are very clearly visible when overtaxed. They show that the placenta can no longer cope with the needs of a growing child. In children born after 42 weeks, 2 to 5 times more severe lesions of the central nervous system occur. As a rule, given the high incidence of complications for the baby, doctors do not wait until the period reaches 42 weeks, and the delivery is already on the 41st.

But to make the right conclusions - a delayed pregnancy or not - it is important to know the exact date of conception, because without this it is simply impossible to correctly calculate the expected date of birth. Consequently, a woman and her doctor may think that the term has expired, although in reality it may not be so. This especially applies to women who are under the heart of a large child and who do not know the exact date of their last pre-pregnancy menstruation. In such a case, there is a great risk that the ultrasound unit also mistakes in the calculation of the PDR.

There is a test to determine the readiness for childbirth. It is called mammar. The meaning of it is as follows: a woman must sit or lie in a comfortable position for her, relax. Nearby should be a clock. A woman should irritate her own nipples and areolas with her fingers for 1 minute every 3 minutes. In total it is necessary to make about 5-6 approaches. At the same time, the second hand should be on the stomach to track the bouts. If the first 3 minutes from the beginning of irritation of the nipples there are the first contractions, and in 10 minutes there will be at least three, - the test is positive. If this did not happen, and a woman is already 40 weeks old, the test is negative and indicates a pregnancy overdose.

Factors and causes of a premature pregnancy

There are certain risk factors in which pregnancy overtesting is most likely to develop.


  • later puberty of a woman;
  • violation of her menstrual function;
  • Significant metabolic disorders;
  • endocrine diseases, thyroid problems;
  • inflammatory (especially chronic) diseases of the genital organs;
  • gestosis (toxicosis of the second half of pregnancy);
  • infantilism;
  • already suffered childhood infectious diseases;
  • Serious mental trauma.

In addition, if a woman has a history of abortions or abortions, the probability of late delivery during subsequent pregnancy is significantly increased.

By the way, sometimes birth does not begin because of psychological reasons. For example, the various fears of mom. This is especially true for those women who throughout the pregnancy have directed all their efforts to maintain a pregnancy, with a high probability of its disruption. As soon as the first contractions and tension of the smooth muscles of the uterus begin, the woman's consciousness, as a matter of habit, begins to block the labor activity.

What is the danger of a delayed pregnancy?

Late childbirth is not just a "delay" in the time of meeting a mother and child. This is a real threat to the health of both the first and second. The fact is that when the pregnancy is overdone, both the quantity and the composition of the amniotic fluid vary. As a result, the risk of intrauterine infection is significantly increased. In addition, the fetus lacks food. Therefore, the smaller the amount of amniotic fluid, the worse for a baby.

We already briefly called one more danger, which is that a toddler can be very large in both weight and size. Furthermore, the lateral cranial bones of the child are stronger and, accordingly, less pliable. Rodnichki and sutures also narrow. As a result, the baby's headit will be harder and harder to go through the mother's birth canal, it will be difficult for her to adjust to the shape of the mother's pelvis. Absence of "front waters", when the bubble tightens the head of the child, slows the opening of the cervix and slows down the birth in general.

As you know, the older the baby, the more mature his nervous system. And this means that for him, the state of oxygen starvation, which arises as a result of the passage through the mother's birth can become more dangerous. Hypoxia of the fetus can manifest itself not immediately, but in the future, in a few years, by health disorders. Such children are much more likely to get sick than their peers born on time, and may also lag behind in mental development.

Yes, and my mother, if the pregnancy is carried over, it is not easy. The risk of various complications increases substantially. At first, a fairly large child can cause injuries to the uterus and tearing of the perineum. Secondly, the child can get stuck in the birth canal during the passage. In such cases, an emergency cesarean section is used. Third, with a pregnant pregnancy, there is a real risk of bleeding after the baby is born.

Well-being is not always a signal about a problem

And it's true, do not get upset if the expected date of delivery has already come, but the kid never leaves his "house". It may well be that this is normal for you. The fact is that for every woman there is an upper limit to the normal period of childbirth. This is due, first of all, to the duration of the cycle of menstruation. For example, if the cycle is more than 28 days, then pregnancy in excess of 40 weeks is quite normal for such a case. And the longer the cycle (from the beginning of one month to the beginning of the next), the calmer it is to react to the repetition.

By the way, sometimes those kids who are in the first trimester of pregnancy are subjected to some kind of external influences (for example, viral infections). In such cases, the kid seems to "get" what he did not have at the beginning of pregnancy.

Moreover, if in the family of a pregnant woman there have already been cases of repetition, it is likely that in her case this is only a hereditary predisposition to exactly this biorhythm in the intrauterine development of the baby.

Migrated pregnancy: what to do

If the pregnancy is really delayed, the doctor, based on the results of a woman's examination and her state of health, will take action. The very same woman can also help the baby "stir." For example, now long walks, gymnastics, swimming, walking on the stairs of the high-rise building will be very useful in all senses. Sex can be especially useful.

If the cause of psychosuppression is psychological - it is worth turning to a competent psychologist.

If there is no reason to worry about the baby's health, according to the medical conclusion, then do not worry. It is better to get distracted and do not get hung up on the fact that the baby was supposed to be born three days ago. It will be useful to form a wardrobe for the baby, if this is not done until now. It would be nice to go to visit, because very soon a woman (up to a certain time) can not afford this.

If the medical examination indicated that there are serious complications (the presence of meconium in the amniotic fluid or the deterioration of the child's heartbeat), resort to urgent medical intervention. As a rule, first resort to drug stimulation of the onset of labor.
