Hello im 27 weeks pregnant and baby movement has slowed down alot in last 2 days. Should I be worried?

Hello im 27 weeks pregnant and baby movement has slowed down alot in last 2 days. Should I be worried?

Probably not: Your perception of fetal movements as well as their character/quality may change as the pregnancy progresses. Ask your Obs or midwife to instruct you about recording "Fetal Kicks" and when to seek additional screening by ultrasound or FHR monitoring/NST. If you are worried or have had a complicated / "high risk" pregnancy, call your doctor or visit your hospital OB-ER /Obstetrical Eval. Unit ...Read more

At 27 weeks pregnancy I had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

At 27 weeks pregnancy I had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

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

I am 27 weeks pregnant and for over a month now I've been having braxton hicks, cramping, and odd baby movement. What can this be?

I am 27 weeks pregnant and for over a month now I've been having braxton hicks, cramping, and odd baby movement. What can this be?

See an Obstetrician: Feeling Braxton Hicks are normal. It lasts about 30 seconds & may feel once or twice an hour. Make sure you know the difference between Braxton Hicks with labor contractions & other complications. Abnormal baby movement (? fetal distress due to low amniotic fluid) needs to be evaluated. Any cervical dilatation? Call your obstetrician. I wish you a good luck with your pregnancy:) ...Read more

Is it normal not to feel movement for a couple of hours late in the 3rd trimester?

Is it normal not to feel movement for a couple of hours late in the 3rd trimester?

Yes: You should feel your baby move every day. Babies have sleep cycles and you may not feel them move while you are sleeping. If it has been more than a couple of hours since you felt your baby move, try eating a snack or drinking juice, often this will make babies more active. If you are still not feeling movement you should call your doctor or the hospital to listen to the baby's heartbeat. ...Read more

28 weeks pregnant. Back to work after long break and don't notice much movement during day. Kick count is 10 kicks in 15-30 min. Should I be worried?

28 weeks pregnant. Back to work after long break and don't notice much movement during day. Kick count is 10 kicks in 15-30 min. Should I be worried?

No: If you can get to 10 in less than an hour, that's as reassuring as you can hope for at home. To be doubly sure, call your doctor and he/she will likely want to listen to the baby's heart rate for 20 minutes. This is called a Non-Stress Test, and if normal would predict less than 1% chance of fetal demise in 4 days. ...Read more

I'm 27 weeks pregnant. Why doesn't my fetus move thatmuch? Is that normal

I'm 27 weeks pregnant. Why doesn't my fetus move thatmuch? Is that normal

Probably OK - but...: At 27 weeks our concern for fetal well-being is low, because most common pregnancy problems do not arise until after 32 weeks. Having said that, please talk to your obstetrician to determine if a fetal biophysical profile and/or growth/fluid assessment is warranted even at 27 weeks, depending on your risk factors. ...Read more
