DOCTOR CONTROL You should consult your doctor if you experience a menstrual delay. You should check whether the pregnancy is an ectopic or intrauterine pregnancy. At the 6th or 7th week, you should go back to your doctor to listen to your baby's heartbeat. BLOOD TESTS After seeing your baby on ultrasound, you should have some blood tests to see if you are having a healthy pregnancy. These tests are performed to detect some parasites and germs by blood count. BINARY TEST To find out if your baby is at risk for chromosomal abnormalities (the most common Down Syndrome), go to 11-14. between the weeks you must do a double test. All mothers of all ages should take this test. ULTRASOUND Pregnancy 18th-23rd. You should not neglect the detailed ultrasound scan between A detailed ultrasound scan is used to see if there is a structural disability or physical defect in the baby's body. SUGAR LOADING TEST 24-28 of pregnancy. You should have a sugar loading test between The OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test) loading test with 75 grams of sugar is recommended for all pregnant women. The aim of this test is to find out gestational diabetes that may occur during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes occurs only during pregnancy due to increased hormones. About 6 of 100 pregnant women have this disease. NUTRITION Since the body tends to collect water and create edema during pregnancy, it is necessary to pay attention to salt consumption. Another important issue as much as salt is sugar consumption. It is recommended to avoid excessive sweet foods. In addition, to keep the blood sugar in balance, frequent meals need to be eaten little by little. As the pregnancy progresses and the baby goes upwards, the expectant mother's reflux, burning in the esophagus, intestinal problems and gas complaints increase. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid heavy meals in the following months. EXERCISE The most ideal sports for pregnant women; walking and swimming. However, it is very important that the mother-in-law does not tire herself in both sports. Regular swimming is one of the recommended activities for pregnant women, provided that they are not tired. However, it is necessary to make sure that the swimwear is not wet. Because wet swimsuits can cause infections, which can interfere with internal organs and genital hygiene. One of the mistakes made is to start untested sports during pregnancy. For example, a pregnant woman who has not played tennis before and did not do pilates is not recommended to start these sports during pregnancy. INTERVENTIONAL INTERVENTIONS IN PREGNANCY Interventional interventions such as amniocentesis, alma taking water from the abdomen Kor and chorion villus sampling (CVS) and placenta biopsy can be performed for pregnant candidates. Amniocentesis and CVS interventions that determine 100 percent whether the baby has chromosomal abnormalities. When the result is risky after performing the paired test, 11-14. CVS is applied between weeks. If the expectant mother has neglected the dual test for some reason, she is 16-20. a triple or quadruple test can be performed between weeks. These blood tests may not be as reliable as a double test. If the risk is detected as a result of this, 16.-20. amniocentesis is applied between weeks. According to research, amniocentesis and CVS is not recommended to all expectant mothers because there is a risk of loss in 300. These tests are only applied to risky pregnant women. RISK PREGNANCY People with a systemic disease such as thyroid, diabetes, who had previously given birth to a baby with anomalies, who had a problematic pregnancy, who had a small baby at the previous birth, lost water, had a stillbirth, had pregnancy poisoning, were pregnant or had multiple pregnancies over 40 years of age. are defined as risky pregnant women. If the expectant mother is included in the risk group, she should be followed by a perinatologist. Perinatologists are interested in risky pregnancies as a sub-branch of obstetrics. Perinatologist determines the health status of the baby, the risks of the mother. WEIGHING Pre-pregnancy 'Body Mass Index' of the mother is important in weight gain. In general, overweight women do not gain much weight during pregnancy, whereas the weak ones tend to gain more weight. The standard weight of the pregnant woman should be 11-13 kg. between. When it comes to the end of pregnancy, an average of three pounds of baby, one kilo of water, 500 grams of breast milk filled, and 500 grams of the placenta is. After all, the mother gets 2-3 pounds. However, in multiple pregnancies can be taken up to 15-16 kg. The burden of gaining too much weight can harm the mother. For example, before pregnancy; those who have problems with waist, back, spine and disc during pregnancy increase these complaints. During pregnancy, the anterior burden increases and the center of balance moves forward. This leads to deterioration of the waist and increase the complaints.
