@ 8 Weeks gestation fetal hr was 175, 17 days later hr is 130 should there be any concerns? this was a vanishing twin pregnancy
I am meant to be 6weeks and 4 days pregnant. Went for a transvirginal scan which only showed a gestation sac and yolk sac no fetal pole. Is this indicating a miscarriage . ?

I am sorry you had such a bad outcome with your previous pregnancy, however if you have a singleton pregnancy next time your risk should be back at baseline (11-12% for the U.S.). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily from now on to prevent sptd. ...Read more

My wife,40,type AB negative blood while mine is type B positive, is pregnant again for 25 weeks. How to prevent and treat fetal hemolytic reaction.

He or she may require exchange transfusions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
