Pregnancy Contractions: When to Call the Doctor
Sometimes the labor process can take a great deal of time before a woman is ready to deliver her baby. Because of this, it is not advisable to call the doctor at the first sign that a woman is going into labor. Instead, the woman should wait until she develops a few of the following symptoms.
One of the most common signs that a woman is going into labor is that her water breaks. It is also likely that she will have a ‘bloody show’ before she begins labor. This is in response to the body preparing for giving birth. The cervix will begin to thin out, which causes the mucus plug to become dislodged.
Contractions are also a way to tell if you are in labor. However, it is possible to have contractions before you actually go into labor. These are referred to as Braxton hicks contractions and are usually felt closer to the end of a pregnancy. Timing your contractions is the best option when you are deciding if it is time to call your doctor.
Your practitioner will give you instructions as it comes closer for you to deliver. They will inform you when you should call your doctor when you are having contractions. More than likely, they will request that you call your doctor when your contractions are a certain amount of time apart. The exact timing will depend on your circumstance.
Pregnancy Contractions: When to Call the Doctor,
Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
