Ultrasound result: single live intrautrerine pregnancy,presently cephalic,20weeks and 5days gestation,oligohydramnios fetal ascites..what can i do

See perinatologist: Its frightening to have an ultrasound that gives news that isn't perfect. Oligohydramnios means that there isn't enough fluid around the baby. You can help make more fluid by drinking lots and lots of water and getting enough rest. You need to see a perinatologist to find out why. This is a doctor who concentrates on complicated pregnancies to find out why. Best Wishes! ...Read more

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Can a pregnant woman's mood affect her fetus' development?

Can a pregnant woman's mood  affect her fetus' development?

Metaphysical questio: Your question is metaphysical and i cannot answer to those ramifications. I will say, though, that maternal sorrow, anxiety, depression, stress do affect the pregnancy adversely and increase the risk for small babies, preterm birth and cesarean section. A healthy, optimistic mood is essential in all aspects of life, including reproduction! ...Read more

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 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  . ?

Not necessarily: While it is possible that you are having a miscarriage, it may be that the pregnancy is just too early to see the fetal pole on US. Rescanning you in a week should reveal what you are looking for. In the meantime, watch for signs/symptoms of miscarriage - cramping, bleeding, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

8 weeks pregnant ultrasound showed 4 weeks.fetal pole n yolk sac not seen gestation sac seen  is everything alright?its my first baby

Most likely, YES: Ultrasound is superior to your period in dating early pregnancy. A gestational sac is the first sonographic sign of pregnancy and appears about 4 1/2 weeks. Next is the yolk sac at about 5 weeks. The fetal pole with a heart beat at about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. So, yes, it appears your pregnancy is progressing normally. ...Read more

I suffered pprom at 16 weeks in my twin gestation and lost my boys at 25 weeks. In my next pregnancy should my cervix be stitched/sewn?

I suffered pprom at 16 weeks in my twin gestation and lost my boys at 25 weeks. In my next pregnancy should my cervix be stitched/sewn?

Not necessarily.: It depends on your other obstetrical outcomes too; your history does not mean you have an incompetent cervix that merits cervical cerclage placement. 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.

Rhogam: Your situation describes Rh incompatibility. You are positive and she is negative. She should have received the Rhogam injection immediately after her previous pregnancies or even before miscarriages. If any of your previous children already had hemolytic reactions, that means your current child is at higher risk and will need to be monitored closely. He or she may require exchange transfusions. ...Read more

Having 7 drinks in two days, while 4 week pregnant. Would it cause alcohol fetal syndrome?

Having 7 drinks in two days, while 4 week pregnant. Would it cause alcohol fetal syndrome?

No: Fetal alcohol syndrome has only been associated with much heavier drinking than you describe. We advise avoiding alcohol (along with many other things) simply because we cannot predict the effects with certainty and do not want to take unnecessary chances. At this very early stage the effect, if any, would more likely be to short circuit the pregnancy entirely. ...Read more
