Pregnancy after birth, symptoms of which then are introduced into confusion as possible, as well as the usual offensive planned pregnancy. However, many women miss the fact of conception Conception, ovarian cycle, fertilization and genetics of a child  Conception, ovarian cycle, fertilization and genetics of a child

Pregnancy after birth

The menstrual cycle (monthly appearance) is restored and a half - two months after delivery, provided that the woman does not breastfeed. This means that women, respectively, and restored fertility (ability to conceive). Although some experts believe that ovulation Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?  Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?
 And hence fertilization can occur during the first two weeks after birth, pregnancy is hardly possible. Even if the sperm and fertilized the mature egg, the path to the implantation of it is closed (the endometrium in the postpartum period is an open wound, therefore, there are no conditions for the attachment of the egg).

Many women believe that breastfeeding is a reliable measure of protection from pregnancy is not desired. Undoubtedly, in many respects they are right. But the pregnant woman, breastfeeding may under the following conditions:

 . This is due to the fact that the hormones of pregnancy significantly alter the formula of breast milk for the baby and it will seem bitter. Some women may simply ignore the child's behavior, but the combination of this feature with the other time to think about a possible pregnancy.

  • Reducing the amount of milk produced

Of course, the reduction in milk production may be associated with other problems (stress, maternal disease, chronic fatigue), but this feature also can not be discounted in the case of suspected unexpected pregnancy. It explains symptoms similar to those that the body evenly distributes its resources on existing child and unborn.

  • Hypersensitivity breast

In the postpartum period, especially during lactation, a woman is very difficult to determine the cause of breast tenderness. Mammary glands are "poured" nagrubayut and become painful. Also, there is irritability nipples. Undoubtedly, this is probably indicative of a breast disease such as mastitis, and can be a sign of pregnancy.

  • Manifestations of early toxicity

A characteristic feature of pregnancy, after birth, regardless of whether a woman breast-feeding or not, are the symptoms of early toxicity. As you know, this condition characterized by nausea Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system  Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system
   and vomiting, reduction or lack of appetite, change in taste preferences. Although, of course, similar phenomena may occur after eating of spoiled food or as a result of gastrointestinal diseases.

  • General malaise

Fetal malnutrition - how terrible such a diagnosis?

July 29, 2010

 fetal malnutrition
 Normal birth weight ranges from 2,500 to 3,600 grams. If the baby is born at term, but weighing less than 2, 5 kilograms, then say that the baby is immature, ie during pregnancy was observed fetal malnutrition. What is that terrible diagnosis: "fetal malnutrition"? How to deal with it and whether you can avoid it? Answers to these questions are looking for many expectant mothers.

Fetal malnutrition, or it is also called intrauterine growth retardation (VZRP) - a slowdown in the natural growth of the fetus when the fetus fetometricheskie figures do not correspond to a given gestational age.

 Fetal malnutrition - how terrible such a diagnosis?

The causes of fetal malnutrition

The reasons, which can lead to intrauterine growth retardation are many, and all of them can be divided into three groups. That is, the causes of the mother, the placenta and the very future of the baby.

 Fetal malnutrition - how terrible such a diagnosis?

The reasons of the mother

The reasons of the mother - is its chronic diseases and complications of pregnancy:

  • continuous threat of termination of pregnancy;
  • chronic diseases of the mother (renal failure, cardiovascular system, endocrine pathology);
  • Pathology of pregnancy (gestosis, hypotension);
  • infectious diseases of the mother (chronic tonsillitis, carious teeth);
  • poor diet pregnant Pregnancy and Nutrition: dangerous products  Pregnancy and Nutrition: dangerous products
  • hazards (industrial hazard, smoking, alcohol);
  • Women younger than age 18 and older than 30 years.

Causes from the placenta

Causes from the placenta touch her illness or injury:

  • placental abruption or injury;
  • inflammatory disease of the placenta (placenta);
  • infarcts of the placenta and premature aging;
  • incorrect placement of the placenta (placenta previa).

Causes from the fetus

Reasons for the part of the fetus can be caused by fetal malformations Fetal development - week after week  Fetal development - week after week
 And multiple pregnancy:

  • multiple pregnancy;
  • fetal abnormalities;
  • fetal infections (toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus infection).

Clinic fetal malnutrition

Depending on the cause, duration and severity of its actions, as well as the duration of pregnancy, during which time she began to manifest itself, fetal malnutrition is divided into symmetric and asymmetric shapes. By the degree of lagging development of the fetus on the intended duration of pregnancy release:

  • 1 degree - the gap is not more than 2 weeks;
  • 2 degree - the gap to 2-4 weeks;
  • 3 degree - the gap of more than 4 weeks.

The symmetrical shape of malnutrition

The symmetrical shape of malnutrition usually begins to develop early in pregnancy. It manifested in uniform lag in the development of all organs of the fetus. The causes of this form of malnutrition are chromosomal abnormalities, poor diet woman, fetal malformations.

The asymmetric shape of malnutrition

Begins to develop this form after 28 weeks of pregnancy, is characterized by uneven development of various organs of the fetus. For example, brain, limbs and skeleton corresponds to the period of pregnancy, and parenchymal organs (kidneys and liver) are lagging behind in development.

Diagnosis of fetal malnutrition

First of all, suspect the lag in the development of the baby, the doctor can and should be engaged in surveillance of the pregnant woman. With this purpose, each time at the reception, it produces a certain circumference of the abdomen of a pregnant woman and a height of standing uterus. When fetal malnutrition, these data will not be consistent with the parameters specific to a particular stage of pregnancy. But the measure may not always reveal the intrauterine development of the fetus, since the thickness of the subcutaneous fat of the anterior abdominal wall, the amount of amniotic fluid and physique of all pregnant women are different.

A more accurate diagnosis of fetal malnutrition produced by ultrasound, especially in the dynamics of approximately 2-3 weeks. In the US, it is determined fetometricheskih data, ie measurement of the length of the limbs, head and abdominal circumference fetal determination of the amount of amniotic fluid.

Treatment of intrauterine growth retardation is strictly individual and depends on the cause, caused it. Firstly, the correction is made pregnant chronic diseases. Second, the normalization of the supply of the future mother. The diet should be present animal proteins and carbohydrates. Many pregnant misunderstood the question: "Is it enough to eat you? "They believe that a plate, for example, pasta, for breakfast and then for lunch and dinner is consistent with the notion of adequate food. And they do not know that must be present in the diet of dairy products, meat, fish, chicken, and fruits and vegetables.

Furthermore, appointed tocolytic (relaxing the uterus), medications, vasodilators (to improve the utero-placental blood flow), drugs that normalize blood rheology and vitamins. Antihypoxic drugs are also needed (because the child does not receive funds in addition to nutrients and oxygen more), and tools to improve metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting

However, fetal malnutrition - is not a sentence. Timely initiation of treatment and compliance with the doctor's recommendations allows you to achieve good results and reduce fetal malnutrition to zero.
