Basically nothing: It may perhaps be a bit trickier finding the best donor blood should you need a transfusion, but there's enough c-negative blood available. Consider autologous donation should you be planning surgery -- always a good idea in any case. Congratulations on your upcoming delivery, and best wishes. ...Read more
Should I quite taking my ADHD medication since i'm pregnant, even though i'm in my 3rd trimester and not worry about withdrawal and coping without it?
Yes you should!: Even in the third semester, medication can be risky. Stimulant medication does cross the placental barrier to the fetus and the best example of the risk is seen in so called "crack babies" who suffer withdrawal right after birth in mothers who continue to use crack while pregnant. You may not worry about your own withdrawal but should worry about the newborn's withdrawal. Do the right thing, stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Iam 27 weeks pregnant and i feel my baby everyday but sometimes more sometimes less.So i want to know what is normal at this stage.
Comletely normal: I am not as active one day to the next. Also, depending on how the baby is positioned one day to next, you may feel them a lot one day, and barely notice the next, especially at your stage. As you get another 6 weeks along, then they are big enough that every move is felt, so enjoy these mild reprieves for now. When at your next OB appointment, talk to him/her about fetal movement counts. ...Read more
