If I got pregnant while taking klonopin and Prozac can it hurt early fetal development even if I stop as soon as I find out?

If I got pregnant while taking klonopin and Prozac can it hurt early fetal development even if I stop as soon as I find out?

Possibly: Neither of these medications have been found to definitely cause fetal problems, but the FDA advises caution in pregnancy. I suggest you discuss this with your OB/GYN ...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

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

Is it safe to have an appendectomy in 2nd trimester of pregnancy? What is the success rate? Do they calm the fetus down prior to the procedure.

Is it safe to have an appendectomy in 2nd trimester of pregnancy? What is the success rate? Do they calm the fetus down prior to the procedure.

Overall yes but: Any surgical procedure, ideally , should wait until after the baby is born. Surgery, even simple surgery, carries risks to both the mom and fetus. However, if the appendectomy is truly needed then proceed. ...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

I'm 7 weeks pregnant. What causes fetal heart rate to drop from 122 BPM to 81 BPM in two days after pregnancy looked great?

I'm 7 weeks pregnant. What causes fetal heart rate to drop from 122 BPM to 81 BPM in two days after pregnancy looked great?

Hard to say: This question is difficult to answer, because we aren't typically measuring the fetal heartbeat over extended periods of time at this gestational age. Possible technical error . There's not much to do ---> continue to watch the pregnancy. It's normal for fetuses to have cyclic drops in their heartbeat. You may want to consider closer following and possibly an echocardiogram later in pregnancy. ...Read more
