How Do We Know That Birth Is Coming?

Every expectant mother imagines the day she will give birth and what her birth will be like. What should be found in the delivery bag is investigated and the delivery bag is prepared months in advance. In order to get through the birth in the most comfortable way, we need to learn the signs of birth. Pregnancy usually occurs between 270-290 days. So what are these signs of birth?


Prints Are Reduced

When your body is prepared for childbirth, the baby settles into the pelvis and makes you feel lighter. The pressures in the chest and abdomen are reduced, making it easier to breathe.

The expectant mother continues to gain weight during the entire period of pregnancy and it is quite normal for her to be able to take up to 11 to 16 kg by the time of birth. A few days before the birth, the expectant mother may feel that her weight gain has stopped and even “weakened” 1-1.5 kg. The decrease in weight is one of the symptoms of the upcoming birth, and the reason for the withdrawal of these bloatings is the decrease in the amount of water around the embryo.


One of the main signs of real birth coming is contractions. Contractions will be longer and stronger as we get closer to birth. It is difficult to see if contractions are real or wrong contractions.

False birth contractions may occur more frequently in the days before birth. During such pain, your wife gets heavier and hardens like a stone. Usually contractions do not cause pain, but pains can occur in the lumbar area of expectant mothers who have little time to give birth and the lower part of the abdomen. The main difference between contraction pains and the actual pains is that they are not regular and should pass when they change the state of the body. But it would be wrong not to care about them because one day contractions can turn into real pains.

Real Contractions

  • If it happens weeks and earlier, it could be an early pregnancy signal.
  • Convulsions are regular and times increase.
  • They start from the lower abdomen and spread to the groin area.
  • Contractions don’t stop and don’t decrease.
  • Cervical changes occur.

False Contractions

  • They start in the second trimester and are common in the third trimester.
  • It’s irregular and doesn’t increase over time.
  • It is a generalized abdominal jam.
  • Disappears with any movement.
  • There’s no cervical change.



Cypress changes

These changes are the opening of the uterus, the uterus, the birth of the baby. The following changes to the cervix signal worker:

  • Thinning of the cervix: The cervix thins and expands, indicating that the lower part of the uterus is ready for birth.
  • Opening of the cervix during childbirth (expansion): The cervix opens up to about 10 cm, but maximum expansion occurs just before birth.
    Changes in the cervix can only be noticed in the form of softening, thinning and enlargement of connective tissue during the check-ups of the obstetrician. After your doctor observes changes in your cervix, it will inform you about when the birth will take place.

Engagement Arrival

Among the most basic signs of birth are “engagement”, indicating that the pregnancy is about to end and the baby is about to be born.

During the pregnancy process, the cervix is kept closed with a substance similar to the pelte that prevents infections from infecting both the uterus and the baby. As birth contractions begin to increase, the cervix expands and this peltemsi substance is excreted. The engagement occurs in the form of either bloody/brown or pink current, as the expectant mother may notice.

The arrival of the engagement does not mean that the birth will be immediately. Usually within 1-7 days of engagement, the birth takes place. However, if you notice this current in 32-34 weeks of pregnancy, you should go to your doctor.

Arrival of Water

This symptom, which is considered as “my water has arrived” among the public, is one of the most important symptoms that proves that birth is approaching. The arrival of water occurs when the amniotic sac in the mother’s name is torn and the fluid comes out of the vagina. If this sac is torn small from the upper areas, the water may come in the form of a leak, and the expectant mother may interpret it as leaking. This liquid can sometimes come too much to pour out of a glass. In both cases, it is advisable that the mother should go to the hospital immediately. Only 10% of women experience this sign, while the rest live during childbirth.



In the early stages of childbirth, the body secretes prostaglandins that soften the cervix and suppress the uterus. In addition to this secretion, the body also stimulates bowel movement. Increased bowel movements result in the emptying of the intestine to make way for the baby. This is one of the early signs of childbirth. Most women may experience constipation during pregnancy as a result of the pressure of the growing uterus on the intestines and different reasons. As the birth approaches, you can suddenly go to the toilet multiple times a day, make your large toilet and notice diarrhea-like symptoms in your body. If you have had your large toilet several times before birth, it will be useful for you to share it with your doctor or midwife. This will affect the decision of prenatal doctors to enema you. However, since diarrhea can be dangerous during your pregnancy, you should share this situation with your doctor if necessary.

Snow Fall

One of the first symptoms that comes to mind when it comes to birth symptoms is the condition of “the baby to go down”. This condition, which occurred especially in the last month of pregnancy, is also called “abdominal fall”. This is actually the case when the baby enters the channel, which it has to go through in order to be born. With the baby entering the canal, expectant mothers who usually have their first pregnancy may feel a relief, easing in recent weeks.

In this case, your baby is in the most comfortable position for childbirth. As soon as the foetus’s head descends into the small bowl, it is possible to feel a slight downward fall in your stomach. Usually in women who give birth for the first time, the abdomen drops in 34-36 weeks of pregnancy. There are some symptoms for us to understand the fall of the abdomen. If you start breathing more easily, if you can put your palm between the chest and abdomen, the pressure on the urinary sac increases and if you start going to the toilet more often, you can understand that your blood drops in those moments.

Relaxation and Back Pain in Joints

The hormone relacsin secreted during pregnancy helps to soften and loosen your bonds. That’s why starting 29 weeks, your body will become more fragile. One of the symptoms indicating that the birth is approaching is back pain. During this period you may experience ambiguous, mild but disturbing back pains. These pains can last for days and be cut off. Other signs may or may not accompany these pains. These pains are similar to the back and back pains you experience during the menstrual process, and when they rest, change position or take a warm shower, they can pass. When you start experiencing these pains, you don’t have to panic because the real labor pains are regular and rhythmic. These pains increase with an acceleration that increases the intensity and intensity.


Increase in Energy

Shortly before the start of childbirth, expectant mothers may feel full of energy. One of the most common habits among mothers during this period is to do prenatal home cleaning. But it would be quite dangerous for you to use this energy given for childbirth to clean the house from top to bottom, wash curtains and wipe the windows. If you’re a little while away from giving birth and you feel energetic, you should keep your energy a little more and rest. Remember, you’ll need a lot of energy during childbirth.

Frequent lyinting

As a result of the baby entering the canal and printing the bladder with the approach of childbirth, the mother may feel the need to urinate frequently, as well as observe a softening in defecation due to changing hormones are among the signs of giving birth.

In healthy and singudes, the signs of childbirth are especially 38. must be expected after weeks and followed by the mother candidate. Sometimes 38. In the weeks before the week, birth symptoms occur, but the expectant mother does not take these symptoms into account because there is still a lot of time for childbirth. If you’re on the 40th day of your pregnancy and 41. If there are still signs of birth during the weeks, don’t be afraid and don’t think your organism is not prepared for birth. Remember, every pregnancy is unique. The lack of birth symptoms mentioned above does not mean that in any case your pregnancy will last a long time and the birth will be difficult. In situations like this, take your head away from bad thoughts and focus on better thoughts. Try to be happy. Imagine that you’ll get your child back as soon as possible and take precautions ­čÖé
