Depends: Many cases of hives are self limited and do not last more than 6 weeks. If they last more than 6 weeks , they are considered chronic which may or may not go away. Whether it will disappear depends on the cause although most do go away after a few years.

A 31-year-old member asked:

If I took indoethacin in my last weeks of pregnancy, should the fetal heart rate be monitored on a daily basis?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in

Specializes in Gynecology
Depends: Indomethacin taken frequently over a long period of time can cause a transient change in the fetal heart circulation (in doctor speak it closes the ductus arteriosus). Small doses for only a few days, which is usually the only thing we would do, is not particularly dangerous. Check with your doctor on why you are taking it and whether monitoring is needed.

Yes: Anyone who has breastfed knows that it can be very demanding. Sleep deprivation is common for new moms, especially those who are breastfeeding. Keep breastfeeding, though..It is really the best gift you can give your baby. Get anyone willing to help you to give you a hand so that you can catch up on some sleep. Sleep deprivation can certainly cause headaches and depression.

Probably not much: The endocarditis needs to be treated properly with antibiotics. Anticoagulant therapy is controversial but warfarin is most used.

That's a hard one: If you are looking for a carved in stone #, i won't give you one. It depends on your current weight, the weight you've gained so far in your pregnancy, the severity of your diabetes etc. Your best bet would be to talk it over with your nutritionist, who should help you make out a plan and suggest a menu or two that you may follow.

No: Cetirizine is also marketed with pseudoefedrine, which can be a stimulant in some people. Avoid zyrtec-d.
