Have you ever experienced such an experience? Suddenly, the lower body suddenly feels moist, and often wonders if you have broken water?
Breaking water refers to the exudation of amniotic fluid from the uterus and usually occurs before or during childbirth.Water breaking is a normal physiological phenomenon. It is generally divided into two types: high water break and low water breakthrough.Generally speaking, high water breaks are more difficult to discover than low water breaks, and the danger is even greater.After the high level of water is broken, the amniotic fluid flow is small and the speed is slow. It is often misunderstood by pregnant women as leakage or secretions, increasing the probability of hypoxia and infection in the fetus.However, it may also lead to some complications, such as infection, premature placenta, etc.Therefore, pregnant women should recognize the feeling of breaking water in time and seek medical treatment in time.
When the water is broken, the pregnant woman may hear a "啵", and then the lower body will flow out of the transparent liquid that is colorless, tasteless, and non -sticky.The difference between amniotic fluid and urine is that amniotic fluid is like a faucet that can’t be closed, it can’t hold it.
Let’s introduce three points below:
1. The amount and persistence of water breaking.
The amount of water breaking is usually more than leaking or secretions, and it continues to flow out.The amount of leakage or secretions is generally small, and it will stop or decrease over time or posture.If you feel that your lower body is moist, you can wipe it with a sanitary napkin or paper towel, and then observe for a while to see if there are still liquid flowing out.
2. The color and odor of water breaking.
The color of broken water is usually colorless or pale yellow, and sometimes it may also have bloodshot or white floccope.The smell of breaking water is generally a faint sweetness or tastelessness, unlike the osmosis with uric acid, nor like the secretion has a sour odor or fishy smell.If you feel the lower body is moist, you can use a sanitary napkin or paper towel to absorb some liquid, and then observe its color and smell.
3. The time and reasons for breaking water.
Water breaks usually occur before or during delivery, and may occur early due to external force, infection, and placental abnormalities.Loosterity or secretions may occur at any time, which is related to factors such as pregnancy, exercise, diet, emotional and other factors.If you feel the lower body is moist, you can think about the time and cause of the occurrence, whether it is likely to break water.
The breeding of amniotic fluid means that the baby is about to be born, but there are some risks, such as infection and hypoxia.Therefore, after the amniotic fluid is broken, go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible, do not delay time.Generally speaking, the amniotic fluid can last for a maximum of two days. If it has not been launched for more than two days, the doctor may give you a needle -producing needle or caesarean section.Of course, the specific treatment method should be comprehensively judged according to factors such as your gestational week, fetal conditions, and amniotic fluid conditions.After the amniotic fluid is broken, keep calm, do not panic, use sanitary napkins or adult diaper to catch the flowing amniotic fluid, observe the color and smell of amniotic fluid. If there is abnormalities, tell the doctor in time.
The above is the feeling and recognition method of breaking water. I hope it will be helpful to you.If you are sure you have broken water, please seek medical treatment immediately and follow the doctor’s guidance.If you are not sure if you break the water, please contact the doctor in time and check the relevant examination.I wish you a healthy baby!
