My childbirth went smoothly, and it may (pay attention to the wording, maybe) has something to do with the two habits of drinking more water and walking more. Of course, everyone is different. These two habits of mine can be summarized as: maintaining the original lifestyle habits, exercise style, and following the doctor’s advice. Drink plenty of water. I am a buffalo and can drink water very well. After pregnancy, the bottled mineral water was carried to the house by boxes and boxes. My husband was wondering why the water at home was consumed so quickly. After pregnancy, the blood circulation of expectant mothers accelerates, and the demand for water doubles that of ordinary people. Therefore, it is very necessary to intake water at the goal of 8oz/240ml per hour during the day. For more than 500ml bottled water like this, quantified it is exactly half a bottle per hour. 8oz This is the amount of drinking water prescribed by the obstetrician, which is an average level. If you were a buffalo before pregnancy, it may be more than 240. If you don’t drink much water before pregnancy, maybe the amount will be less? Anyway, follow the doctor’s advice. I remember that I told my other pregnant friend about the amount of water she drank. She lamented that the doctor was very good and quantified the amount of water she drank instead of just telling pregnant women to “drink more water.” Therefore, it is recommended that mothers-to-be check with the doctor how to “drink more water” during the checkup. After all, it seems common sense to doctors, and ordinary people may really be blind spots. In addition, drinking water is not only “water”, but also includes the water in the diet, such as the intake of water in fruits and vegetables, such as the intake of water in milk, beverages, and soups. Therefore, don’t think that 8oz of water per hour will be squeezed into the water, but you can disperse the drinking water into the following pattern: wake up at 8 o’clock in the morning, a glass of water, almost 200ml. For breakfast at 9 o’clock, there must be more than 200ml of milk/porridge. 10 o’clock fruit, drinking water. Replenish water at 11 o’clock. Lunch at 12 o’clock, basically with the water of the meal can be satisfied. Fruits, snacks, and beverages at 13:00 (if you have the habit of drinking coffee, a small amount of daily coffee is also allowed for pregnant women). Replenish water at 14:00. 15 o’clock fruit snack, milk, etc. Replenish water at 16 o’clock. For dinner at 17 o’clock, there must be enough water with the meal. Fruit supplement at 18:00, water when taking vitamins during pregnancy, etc. Replenish water at 19:00. 20 o’clock milk. Get hungry at night and add milk to the meal. Roughly speaking, the time to replenish water is about 4 times. As long as the mother-to-be remembers to drink up to two times between work in the morning and afternoon, it can basically meet their own physiological needs. Drinking plenty of water has played a key role in my smooth delivery. Because during the 36-week birth check, the doctor told me that I was still in the breech position and I needed to check the baby’s position every week and intervene appropriately. If the head cannot be turned upside down before delivery, a cesarean section is necessary. Interventions include drinking plenty of fluids in the last few weeks of pregnancy to ensure that there is enough amniotic fluid in the uterus, so that the baby in the older months has enough space to move around. (You don’t need to drink as much as I do in the small month, because too much amniotic fluid in the early stage may also be a cause of the baby’s breech position) More “baby lying” chest-knee lying position is said to provide enough space for the baby to promote The baby turns around. Similar to this, three foreign doctors suggested that I could try Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion to try to reincarnate. It was really recommended by foreign doctors. I was also shocked at the time. This topic will not be discussed in this article. Since the 36th week, I have increased the amount of water I drink, and really went to acupuncture (acupuncture point in the little toe). Then I poked my ass down when I was fine… Fortunately, there was no one else in the house at the time, and I didn’t have to worry about my face. Then on a Thursday morning more than a week later, I was woken up by the intense activity of the baby in my stomach. At that time, I had a hunch that the baby turned around! Sure enough, for the next birth check, the doctor happily informed me that if there is no accident, I don’t need to consider a caesarean section, and the baby is waiting for delivery! Walk more. I am not a person who loves sports, but since I was young, my family has a traditional project: walking together after dinner. You can talk while walking, from 7 o’clock to at least 9 o’clock. The result: I can walk very well. Although it is a small body with small arms, calves, and not much strength, but the legs are very strong, it really depends on walking! After high school, this program was cut, but after pregnancy, in order to increase the chance of having a childbirth, my husband accompanied me to pick up this tradition again. Walk outdoors on sunny days and walk indoors on rainy days. The expected delivery date is September, and the weather is suitable. The parks, paths, supermarkets, and shopping malls near my home have left me and my husband. Even if the false contractions in the third trimester of pregnancy become more and more frequent, you have to take a break after a few steps, and your feet are swollen by two sizes, and your husband wears socks. Under the premise of ensuring safety, he insists on walking every day. . (The topic of false contractions appeared in the comments, and by the way, I posted an article about false contractions from babycenter that I personally translated, for reference only) Dragon Mother Raising a Baby: What is “false contractions”? What precautions? How to effectively care? Later, I bought 41 socks for 38 feet, and I wore them just right. One day when we finished shopping in the supermarket, the black uncle who checked the list at the door unexpectedly said to us: “See you tomorrow.” Finally, I wish you a good pregnancy!
