Hair Loss After Pregnancy



Hair loss after pregnancy is extremely common in women. Hair loss during and after pregnancy can be due to hormonal problems. Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they’ve had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. Pregnancy can change the overall configuration of the hormones of a woman in many ways. When hormones change, the hair may become a target for change in some, but not necessarily all, women.

This is due to the rapid growth of the hair cells which reflect changes in the global environment hormone in the body of the woman. When a woman is pregnant, increasing production of sex hormone estrogen, which in turn prolongs the growing (anagen) phase of hair cycle.

During pregnancy, many women find that their hair is much fuller and more luxurious. However, after birth, estrogen levels drop and more hair falling into the resting (telogen) phase. The result is that the hair may fall more, and the rest cycle may last between 2 and 6 months, it may take time to see the return of hair growth phase.

Given the rate of hair growth, approximately ½ inch per month, it may take up to one year before returning hair to its state prior to pregnancy. Before this case, you may think you’re going bald, but this is not the case. For nursing mothers, the rest period may take more than a year, and regrowth may also take a year before returning to previous levels.

Development of Baby in 41 Week of Pregnancy



You may have already had your hospital bag packed and waiting to go for weeks now. But in the slim chance that you haven’t done so, now is the time to do it. Don’t over pack but pack enough to keep you comfortable for at least 3 days. You should have a nightgown, bathrobe, slippers, change of clothes, socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and a magazine or books.

The only left to do is at this point in the pregnancy is to be patient and wait. Some women may try to induce their own labor by going for rides in cars when they shouldn’t or exercising. It is best to just let nature take its course. You are at week 41; you are not going to be pregnant much longer.

You should have already decided on who was going to be in the delivery room with you and who is going to drive you to the hospital and who is going to make the phone calls after your baby is born. You should by now have a girls name picked out and a boys name chosen at this stage. Some women while in the hospital like to write out birth announcements and then send the pictures out at a later date. At this week in pregnancy, you should be taking the prenatal vitamins as well as continue on your healthy eating style. This may be something you want to continue after the baby is born or you are looking forward to a Big Mac.

You may still be able to exercise a little bit at this week, continue to practice the Kegel Exercises. This will help you strengthen your muscles for delivery. At the same time, don’t over do it. You will need as much rest as you can now because your nights of getting 8 straight hours of sleep are a thing of the past.

Baby’s Development

By 41st week of pregnancy, the baby grows completely. Your baby is trying hard to get comfortable by making continuous movements. Your baby is sitting in a cramped position by 41st week and is ready to come out of the womb. The baby is stuck for a long and is waiting impatiently to come out just like you eagerly waiting. By now the baby weights near about 8 ¼ ibs and almost 20 inches long. The baby sleeps a lot as there is no space for it to move. The baby continues to sleep even during the contractions. As the pushing contraction occurs, the baby’s head is pushed downwards and so soon it is over the baby is pushed back. This continues until the baby moves down through the birth canal and remains visible.

As the baby continues to grow it does not find space to move and makes the mother feel heavier. Although the baby adds some weight it manages to move swiftly. All the organs of the baby are matured and the bones become strong. Only the brain and lungs does not get matured completely until the birth of the baby. There is very little lanugo left on the baby’s skin. Some of the lanugo would remain behind the ears. You can continue counting the kicks of the baby. There should be about 10 kicks in 4 hours of time. If you have any concerns related to your baby then you should rush and visit your doctor. On an average the babies are born four days after the due date.

Changes With Your Body

By now the inner part of the vagina may start to sting and burn, this is due to the position of the baby .You will still feel the kicks and all of the baby’s movements by now. Some women may not feel labor pains at this stage so, the doctor may want to do an ultra sound to determine why and they may induce labor in a week or so, if you still haven’t felt any labor pains. The main thing is to still monitor the movements of the baby.

If the doctor decides to induce labor they will give you a drip of Oxyoctin this will help with placing the hormones right into the bloodstream and start up the labor. The only thing that you should be thinking of is preparing for the baby to come home and let the doctor worry about the baby. Now is the time for excitement and not for worry. You should still be consuming a good amount of water and continue to eat small meals.

It is normal to feel frustrated because the baby should have been born by now (at least that is what you are thinking). Every pregnancy is different and every birth is different. Just think that you have had some time to experience pregnancy than other women.

What To Expect

If you happen to develop a vaginal discharge that smells foul inspite of a normal delivery of the baby, then you must visit your doctor as there might be some serious problem. Only about 5% of the babies are born on their actual due dates. The other pregnancies that go post pregnancy date are so because their dates are not calculated correctly. You do not have to worry about the delivery as it would its way.

You can keep a track of every week of your pregnancy and treasure these days. You need not worry as many women pass their due dates. If the due date passes, then artificial induction methods could be used for labor. You can also go for some non-medical techniques. However consult your doctor before going through any techniques at home for getting labor started. A non-stress test would be helpful as you would be assured of baby’s good health. You might get your labor pains anytime and you would end your waiting. You need not worry and just relax and wait for the baby to arrive.

Keep Taking Good Care of Yourself

It’s often hard to keep a positive attitude when you’re overdue. but don’t give up yet! Maintain good nutrition, and keep up your fluid intake. If you can do so without any problems, get some mild exercise, like walking or swimming. You may feel better if you continue your pregnancy exercises.

The following exercise is easy to do, no matter how big you are. Lie on your left side on the floor or bed. Elevate your head with a pillow. Bend your knees, and pull your arms close to your body. While inhaling, reach your right arm over your head as you fully extend your right leg, leading with your heel. Hold for 3 seconds. Exhale as you return to the starting position. Do four times on each side; it helps stretch back muscles.

Rest and relax now because your baby will be here soon, and you’ll be very busy. Use the time to get things ready for baby so you’ll be all set when you both come home from the hospital.

Tips/Advice

Remember the day is coming when the baby will be born. The baby is just as anxious for it to be born as you are. Nature has a way of taking its time when it is something that you have waited for the past 9 months. But rest assured the baby is coming and soon you will be holding the baby you have felt kicking inside you.

Cervical Mucus Is A Sign of Pregnancy?: Helpful Information



If you have been trying to get pregnant, you may be monitoring your cervical mucous. When you are approaching ovulation, you may notice your cervical mucous starts to change. As you get closer to ovulation your cervical mucous will become egg white looking and stretchy. Then after you ovulate your cervical mucous will begin to dry up. But what happens if you are pregnant? Some women notice changes in their cervical mucous when they are pregnant and others do not or if they do, they don’t notice it during early pregnancy.

Cervical Fluid During Pregnancy

Women may notice an increased cervical discharge when they are pregnant. Leukorrhea is a whitish colored vaginal discharge that women often see during pregnancy. The higher levels of estrogen produced during pregnancy cause the cervical glands to secrete more cervical fluid. It may become more noticeable as a woman gets further along in her pregnancy and is most common in the third trimester. However, some women may notice leukorrhea in early pregnancy.

What Type of Cervical Mucous Could Be A Symptom of Pregnancy?

Some women notice an increase in cervical mucous during early pregnancy. It is helpful to know what your typical cycle is like. If you normally have very dry cervical mucous and notice an increase in cervical mucous before your period starts, this could be an indicator that you are pregnant. However, as with any pregnancy symptom, it is not necessarily meaningful. Keep in mind that some women notice changes like breast tenderness, frequent urination, or increased cervical mucous even when they are not pregnant. Still if you ask women who have been pregnant before, many of them describe seeing creamy cervical mucous or sticky cervical mucous during the early part of their pregnancies.

While this pregnancy symptom may not give you a clear indication of pregnancy, you may want to monitor your cervical mucous at the end of your cycle. Many women find it difficult to distinguish between normal cervical mucous and pregnancy cervical mucous. If you have been pregnant before it may be easier for you to tell if the cervical mucous you are seeing resembles “pregnant” cervical mucous. Either way, watching your cervical mucous may help you to determine what your own body’s natural patterns are. And, if you have been experiencing other pregnancy symptoms like breast tenderness or nausea, the added symptom of increased vaginal discharge may be a predictor of pregnancy.

Hair Styles For A Round Face



Sometime you will not have another chance to make new experiences, so it is important to make sure that your appearance is great.

A friend of mine has a perfect round face. It also has thin hair so it does not grow much longer than an inch or two past her shoulders. In a conversation with her advice, my thing was that the most appropriate style of classic cut Bob, just below the chin. From the beginning, my friend considered this haircut is very boring, but day-to-Bay; she realized that it is not.
There is much she can do with this cut. It can flip it, flip it under the terms of his in the middle of his side, Tuck hair behind both ears and just one and carry it in several ways. It can also scrunch it and let it dry curly, mousse it, a part of it, etc…

One day she meets the perfect hairdresser with great talent and imagination. Barber makes a couple of strategically long layers in the back. She showed her how to tease this section, spray it, and then gently comb over it to create a lifting force to win her back. This great trick added an additional half inch of height, which was very good performance thinking that she is only 5 feet. Probably, the words can not explain enough, but this trick in combination with more layers of conical forward seems to elongate her round face and make it a more oval shape.

Baby Skin Care Problems and Solutions in Winter



After the early months of babyhood have passed the skin of most children has a more than adequate layer of fatty ‘padding’ which gives it a beautiful smooth appearance, often described as having the quality of ‘purity’. All the functions are very active, and because the stratum corneum is functioning effectively the skin is very well hydrated. Indeed, by and large children skin is the healthiest we ever see.

Winter can be a very harsh time for an adult’s skin but for babies it can be extra harsh. Your baby’s skin is very sensitive and you will need to take extra care for your baby if you live in a cold environment. Winter time weather could cause irritation and your baby’s skin to dry out. It is easy for the moisture in their soft skin to disappear. Cold wind has a way of depleting skin of its moisture and elasticity. There are certain things that you will want to do to prevent this from happening.

Skin serves many purposes for the human body, including regulation of body temperature and protection from the elements. During the months prior to birth, the mother’s womb is performing these tasks for the baby. But at birth, the baby’s skin is preparing to take care of these important functions on its own. An infant is born with the skin fully developed as a barrier, or protection, from the outside world unless he is premature. However, some portions of the skin are not fully mature at birth. There are some simple things you can do to keep your child’s skin as healthy as possible.

Skin Problems in Winter:

Babies may be particularly prone to dry, irritated skin in winter. A number of factors play a part:

Central heating tends to make the atmosphere dry, and can dry out your baby’s skin. Your baby’s hands and face are particularly prone to getting cold. This can cause dryness and chapping. Wind, as well as cold, can cause chapping. Fortunately, simple measures can help to keep your child’s skin in tip-top condition:

•Don’t bath your baby more than every 2-3 days, and keep bathtime short.
•Don’t bundle your child up too warmly. This can make him sweat, which can irritate the skin.
•Remember that the difference between outside and inside temperature is greatest in winter. Lots of layers of thin clothes will allow you to adjust his clothing to keep him at the right temperature.
•Never wear wool next to the skin.
•Use lots of unscented emollients, applied frequently during the day, if your child has dry skin.
•Rinsing clothes thoroughly, and using a fabric conditioner designed for sensitive skin if you use one, are all the more important at this time of year, when your baby’s skin may be irritated by other things.
Baby Skin Care Tips for Winter:

•It’s advisable not to make your baby take bath daily as there is less humidity in air and daily exposure to water can make the skin more rough and dry. Even if you daily do it, restrict the bathing time to just 2 or 3 minutes.
•Use baby lotions containing greasier contents and massage it on their body immediately after bath and try to maintain a cozy temperature in your room, especially at that time.
•Don’t over dress your baby with woolens, as he/she may sweat internally, clogging their sweat pores and develops red rashes. Just try to cuddle them in soft fur like clothes for a soft touch to their skin.
•Your baby’s skin can be oily or dry. For dry skin, give a massage of warm unscented oils and for babies having oily skin, a moisturizer massage is sufficient as more oil will give rise to acne.
•Use mittens and head covers (hats, caps and hoods) for your child’s winter wear. These will help protect the delicate skin on hands, face and head. Consider using accessories, including stroller that has covers or blankets to shield against wind.
•During winter time, go for creams in place of baby powders in his or her diapers. Creams form a protective layer that protects against friction, moisture and discomfort.
•Babies are vulnerable to frostbite as they rapidly lose heat in cold temperature and their lips tend to dry badly developing into painful sores. To prevent it, always apply lip care jelly for babies within a period of 2 to 3 hours.
•Also apply a light coat of petroleum jelly inside baby’s nose, as harsh cold air can induce dryness in the nose and can result in bleeding at times. Check that your baby doesn’t rub his or her nose.
•Make your baby drink an average amount of lukewarm water to keep the skin hydrated from within.
