Gentamicin Dose: The correct volume to draw up in the syringe is 0.875 ml. Be sure that you have a syringe that is calibrated in units small enough where you can accurately measure the correct dose. Your pharmacist should be able to help you purchase the best syringe for this dose.

Dr. Anna Barbieri

At every visit: You will have your blood pressure checked at every visit. It is normal in pregnancy to see your blood pressure decrease in the second trimester and then slowly rise. Blood pressure measurements, especially in the second half of pregnancy, are important in identifying women with gestational hypertension and/or preeclampsia, conditions that can significantly impact both mother and baby.
