October 31, 2013
Frequent urination — one of those symptoms which the woman can test throughout the entire period of pregnancy.
How the frequent urination at pregnancy is shown?
The frequent urination at pregnancy begins to be shown at the woman from first weeks of incubation of a fruit. Sometimes on this symptom future mother notices the first signs of pregnancy. Already at the beginning of pregnancy frequent desires are felt even if the bladder at the woman is not crowded. In the first trimester future mother visits a toilet very often. The quantity of desires gradually decreases on the term about 16 weeks of pregnancy. However by the end of term, in the third trimester, the frequent urination disturbs again the woman as her uterus strongly increases and puts the considerable pressure upon a bladder. When there comes approximately the 38th week of pregnancy, the frequency of urinations can decrease a little.
At each woman at pregnancy this symptom can individually be shown. At some pregnant women the frequent urination is observed for all nine months, and, changes in the frequency of campaigns in a toilet are swept aside practically in the first days after conception. It is necessary to remember also that this sign can be present also at an extrauterine pregnancy, and also in the first weeks at the stood pregnancy. For this reason it is important obligatory to visit the doctor and to make sure that incubation of the kid takes place normally.
Very often the woman notes that she should wake up several times at night to visit a toilet. The reasons at pregnant women of such phenomenon speak simply: liquid which collected in a day owing to hypostases departs at night.
In spite of the fact that the frequent urination during pregnancy is noted at most of women, some future mothers nevertheless do not note such symptom throughout all term. It also is norm option.
Why the frequent urination at pregnancy is shown?
It is necessary to understand accurately that the speeded-up urination during incubation of the kid is fraught only with discomfort, but does not exert a negative impact on health of mother and future child. Getting rid of urine, the organism removes toxins, thereby, preventing their negative influence.
Basic reason on which the woman suffers from too frequent urination from the first days of pregnancy are serious changes in its hormonal background.
In the first month of pregnancy in an organism active production of hormone which is called the chorionic gonadotrophin of the person (CGP) begins. Under its influence the urination raises.
The organism of the pregnant woman contains a large amount of liquid. During incubation of a fruit approximately blood volume increases by 50%. Besides, amniotic liquid is constantly updated. As a result, kidneys of the pregnant woman function much quicker, and frequent desires to an urination are inevitable.
One more reason which forces future mother to visit very often a toilet, this increase in pressure of a uterus at a bladder. Women who have weak muscles around an urethra can even have an urine leak. As a rule, it occurs at a strong tension — when the woman coughs, sneezes. Leak of urine is more often observed pregnancies in recent months, and also in the first weeks after the delivery. To prevent this phenomenon, follows at the first desires to surely visit a toilet.
Approximately by 4th month of pregnancy the quantity of desires to an urination can decrease by some time as the increased uterus gradually moves to the center of an abdominal cavity. Pressure decreases till that time while the uterus does not begin to fall to a basin gradually.
How to facilitate a state at a frequent urination at pregnancy?
The woman has to show consideration for daily quantity of campaigns in a toilet. If at future mother the speeded-up urination is not observed, then she should think of whether she uses enough liquid. Daily future mother for normal functioning of an organism needs to drink not less than eight glasses of water. At a lack of liquid of an organism and, respectively, to a rare urination the risk of development of infectious diseases of an urinary system sharply increases.
To reduce the frequency of urinations, future mother has to switch off those drinks which contain caffeine from the diet and, therefore, have diuretic effect. It is necessary to drink the main amount of water in the morning and in the afternoon, and it is better for pregnant woman to limit liquid reception in the evening. It is worth limiting in an evening diet and that food which contains a lot of liquid: these are soups, fruit. In the course of an urination it is necessary to bend forward that the bladder was released completely.
Doctors advise the pregnant woman whenever possible to sleep several hours in the afternoon. Such mode will promote rest and will allow the woman to wake up less often at night because of emergence of desires to an urination. The pregnant woman should not keep from an urination if she feels desire to visit a toilet. At continuous abstention the bladder stretches, and also sphincters are weakened that is especially shown after the delivery.
If at an urination the discomfort, gripes, burning appears, then it is necessary to report about such symptoms to the doctor surely. As alarming signs it is necessary to consider also emergence of blood in urine, desire again to go to a toilet at once after an urination. Such symptoms are shown at infectious diseases of urinary tract. This bacterial infection at women develops very often. In the absence of treatment the illness can provoke a renal infection and premature births.
At once after the delivery the frequent urination can proceed for several days as the organism gradually gets rid of excess liquid. Approximately in a week the condition of the woman is normalized.
