I don't think so.: Mention your concerns with your oby. The low grade fever and the fast fetal heart rate likely is from the uti. The antibiotics should take care of the infection.Take care and god bless u and your child! http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/m/pubmed/23761161/http://www.Medindia.Net/surgicalprocedures/caesarean-section-types-and-indications.Htm.

Yes: This is a class c drug so there are some possible effects on the fetus. However, if you are on this drug then not taking it while pregnant can cause more problems for the baby. You should never stop this class of medications without taking to you infectious disease doctor first. It is vitally important that you stay on your meds so that you stay healthy and the baby does not become infected.

Observe: Sometimes, eating too much or new foods can cause stomach ache. Your stomach ache may be related to your food intake or it may be related to your pregnancy. You can observe for a few hours and see if it resolves or is associated with diarrhea. If it resolves, all is well. If you have vaginal bleeding or persistent/worsening abdominal pain, see a ob-gyn to make sure you arent having a miscarriage.

A 24-year-old member asked:

I experience a lot of stress, anxiety and panic. I've been checked out (blood, thyroid, x ray, EKG, urine) for palpitations and the doctor says it's anxiety. What should I do?

Anxiety: If there is no physical cause then this is psychological. Make sure you are not using recreational drugs or alcohol as these can cause your symptoms. Call your doctor for a referral to psychiatrist that can determine the cause of your problem and treat you properly. No matter what be sure you are living a healthy lifestyle.
