Palm sweating: There is a condition called hyperhidrosis which can lead to swelling of the palms. This has to do with sympathetic nerve chain. I would advise that she be evaluated by a thoracic surgeon, as there are procedures can be done to help with this problem.

A member asked:

Is it normal that my baby only feeds twice a day?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

Yes: When babies start solid foods they usually will tolerate about 2 feeds a day. The breastmilk or formula is and should be the bulk of their nutrition. I generally recommend changing to a three meal a day routine when they are closer to 9 months.

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.

Should I be worried if I feel my baby move less than 10 times a day?

Dr. Jeffrey Gladd
Preventive Medicine 20 years experience
No: Not necessarily. A lot of times, you are so busy throughout the day that you did not recognize all the baby movement. If this is the case, drink a glass of ice cold water (may stimulate baby a bit more), and lie down in a dark, quiet room. You can now focus on baby movements and should count multiple movements in a 30 minute period. Try to replicate this as best as possible throughout the day.

Brain fog: Brain fog is a real symptom that can have many causes. Sometimes it is due to illness or hormone fluctuations commonly seen in women in the years before and during menopause. Mood disorders such as depression can cause this symptom. Keep a journal concerning your activities , what you eat and the brain fog days and see if there is a pattern.
