Ob/Gyns say the best prevention this flu season is to get vaccinated. Deadlines are piling up at work. Your older kid signed you up for a dozen items at the school holiday party. Your younger kid’s daycare has informed you that a stomach bug is going around. Your Christmas shopping list doesn’t have a dent in it. You’re stressed to the max. We’ve all been there. Then, you wake up one morning and realize… you don’t feel good. Your body aches, your head hurts, you’re tired, you’re coughing; and you probably have a fever, but you’re too exhausted to check. During the busiest season of all, you’ve got the flu. Then, regret sets in. If only you’d have paused a moment to get that flu shot. “But, my schedule was so busy!” That was true. But if you’d have stopped to get that flu shot, you might not be missing work or calling in reinforcements to get the kiddos where they need to be. And the school holiday party? Well, the husband’s going to have to grab packaged cookies for the win. Instead of this scenario, AWH Dallas and its healthcare professionals encourage women to take a break and get […]
The symptoms of stress in females, and ways to stay healthy. November 6 is National Stress Awareness Day, and while stress affects us every day of the year, it’s important to take the time to understand how and why. Stress is the body’s reaction to challenge or change. A small amount of stress can be used for motivation for some people, but chronic stress can lead to quite a few health problems. Chronic stress can be caused by a variety of things, however financial worries, traumatic events, and an overwhelming schedule are some of the most common causes. Women are more likely than men to experience more severe side effects from stress such as depression and anxiety. There are many more side effects from stress, including headaches, chest pain, fatigue, irritability, overeating or undereating. Stress can also cause increased PMS symptoms and irregular periods. The American Heart Association offers numerous tips for stopping stress in its tracks so women can catch their breath, put things into perspective and get on with their days with a healthy approach. The organization’s suggestions for alleviating stress include: Take a few slow, deep breaths until you feel your body un-clench a bit. Walk away […]
Learn the signs and symptoms of labor, so you’re ready to head to the hospital and meet your baby. It’s almost the end of the episode. The friends have all made it through the funny argument and everything is back to normal. Out of frame, the pregnant friend says, “Guys? Guys?” and they all turn to her laughing, because what could possibly be the problem? They made up! They’re all friends again. It was just a misunderstanding. What does the over dramatic pregnant woman want their attention for? “I think my water just broke.” Everyone looks at each other. And roll credits. If you were born in the 80s or 90s, television taught everyone that when your water breaks, you’re about one half-hour episode — including a frantic, hilarious car ride — away from being a mother. We’ve all learned that’s what “going into labor” means, but there is a lot more to it than television has led us to believe. In casual conversation, going into labor encompasses everything that happens as the body prepares for birth until the baby is born. For medical purposes though, labor is considered the active preparation and act of childbirth. Much of what we […]
