things you should know and prepare when you are 7 months pregnant

Entering the age of 7 months the development of the fetus is nearing perfect. At the beginning of the 7-month pregnancy your fetus can weigh more than 1 kilogram with a length of about 38.6-39 cm. In this last trimester, the fetus will become very active. This movement is also useful for detecting whether your baby is healthy or not.

Unlike when you are 6 months pregnant, the nutritional needs of the fetus at this time reach its peak, so the mother must consume enough nutritious food containing calcium, protein, folic acid, iron, and vitamins.

Embryo growth
The importance of regular monitoring of the condition of the fetus to see whether the fetus in the womb develops according to gestational age or not. The following are fetal developments that must be known by pregnant women when their womb reaches the age of 7 months, including:

  • His sucking ability is growing. The fetus can often suck its own thumb.
  • Her lungs are growing rapidly. The new fetus will breathe after reaching the age of 36 months.
  • The bone marrow has taken over the liver to produce red blood cells.
  • The size of the head has been proportional to its size.
  • Hair on the head starts to grow more dense than before.
  • Fetal genitals have begun to be seen, but not yet clearly confirmed.
  • The baby's head is generally under position ready to be born.
  • The head and the bones harden along with the development of the brain, lungs, and muscles.
  • Baby's skin from day to day will look more smooth. Lunago on his body eventually began to disappear.

Changes that Occur in the Body

One change that can be felt when entering 7 months of pregnancy is difficulty breathing because the uterus is pressing and the fetus's weight increases. But this condition will subside when the baby is in a ready position to be born with the head down.

In addition, some pregnant women also often feel cramps, especially at night. These conditions make it uncomfortable and cause frequent conditions of difficulty sleeping. This is one factor why you can feel more tired. If you experience insomnia that feels very disturbing, you should consult your doctor to get the right treatment.

The following are some of the other changes that can be experienced by 7 months pregnant women, including:

  • The body will produce various hormones that can cause the joints to loose. This condition causes the legs to become larger so you might need to change shoes to a larger size.
  • The enlarged uterus makes pregnant women feel back pain and quickly become sore. In order to make back pain worse, pregnant women are advised not to sit too long and do not wear high heels that make the condition of back pain worse.
  • The breast gland begins to produce breast milk (ASI)
  • Swollen feet during pregnancy can cause varicose veins.
  • What Should a 7-Month Pregnant Woman Do?
  • Examination performed at the age of the womb entering the age of 7 months aims to determine the position of the fetus in the womb. Usually the fetus has a changing position, sometimes the position is good and normal, but sometimes the position is breech.

That is because the head of the fetus has not entered the pelvis. If it has entered the pelvis, the position of the fetus will not change just to wait for the membranes to rupture.

Consult the doctor immediately if you experience the following conditions:

  • Severe itching. Itching that exceeds reasonable limits can be a symptom of a rare liver disorder, namely obstetric cholestasis.
  • Preeclampsia or high blood pressure during pregnancy. High levels of protein in the urine and high blood pressure are a sign of preeclampsia. This condition can be life threatening if allowed to develop.
Meanwhile, constipation is one of the common disorders that can occur at 7 months of gestation. If you experience this disorder, here are some tips to prevent it:

  • Consume enough mineral water, at least 10-12 glasses a day.
  • Consume plenty of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables.
  • Limit consumption of iron supplements.
  • Limit consumption of laxatives to treat constipation.
  • Regular exercise at least three times a week can help launch a bowel movement.
Although the delivery process will be carried out 2 months later, there is nothing wrong with you starting to prepare all the needs that will be taken to the hospital. Consult with a doctor or those who have already undergone this process so that you are better prepared to deal with it
