In this article, we describe what happens to women during pregnancy, including visits to a doctor, ultrasound examinations, and health checks on mothers and babies.
How Often Will I Need to Visit my Obstetrician and Gynecologist?
Pregnant patients need to:
- In the first 28 weeks, once every four weeks;
- Every two weeks, between 28 and 36 weeks;
- Until 36 weeks after she gave birth, every week, the reason was that things changed much faster.
Remember, a normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks, which is about 280 days.
Why Taking Prenatal Vitamins is Important?
Congratulations you are pregnant! The first thing we want to protect your baby is to start prenatal vitamins. They are different from the regular multivitamins you can buy on the market. Because they contain less vitamin and mineral content and concentration than the conventional products usually obtained by pregnant women who are not pregnant.
The purpose of vitamins is to provide you with all the minerals and vitamins you need without overwhelming the baby and possible side effects.
Most prenatal vitamins carry iron, so it is important to add Pauline saturated fatty acids (we call them ordinary DHA) because they help develop the baby’s body.
When Will I Have my First Ultrasound?
During pregnancy, there are very interesting signs of development. For example, usually we can see the baby for seven weeks with about 600 ultrasound machines, sometimes earlier, sometimes even later, but we can expect more or less time to see the baby.
Then, if you have an ultrasound for any reason, and earlier, don’t be surprised and don’t worry about whether they can recognize the embryo. In about ten weeks, we will be able to use one of our manual Dopplers-those small amplifiers-which are in the pocket during regular visits-to listen to the voice of the baby.
Twelve weeks is a very interesting time, because the first time the baby listens to music is when we advise all fathers to calm down and get close to the mother, because the baby is familiar with a boy and a tone. In this way, in a truly worrying, very confusing, and changing baby after childbirth, the baby will be able to recognize the boy, and the baby may be at ease and count when listening to the father’s voice again.
What Tests Will Be Done?
We like to perform many tests in the early stages of pregnancy because it helps us identify things that need to be changed and can better protect the baby and mother.
There will be some tests in the blood, such as tests for infectious diseases, including hepatitis, syphilis, HIV, etc. But we also want to collect some urine samples, because we want to look for drugs that are potentially toxic to babies, or urinary tract infections that may cause rupture of membranes or premature birth.
In addition, some patients may need a Pap smear, if not, they have not been done in the past three years or so.
I would also like to add that blood samples are also important for checking blood levels.
The type of blood should also ensure that the difference between the father and mother does not pose a danger to the baby, and also check that the immune antibody system may pass through the placenta and interfere pregnancy.
Genetic Screening Process
Between 11 and 13 weeks, we encourage all patients to undergo genetic screening for the first repair. The purpose of developing this test is to identify babies who may have chromosomal abnormalities, as well as pregnant women who may be more likely to develop preeclampsia growth restriction, return to the label or even fetal death in the second trimester. Under normal circumstances, we will give you Take blood from your finger and ultrasound after about 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Fortunately, most babies will be completely normal, but your screening results are abnormal. This does not mean that your baby has these abnormalities, but it is recommended that you should perform more tests to try to confirm or rule out such abnormalities. The possibility of abnormality. Normal thing.
