Im 39 weeks pregnant and get lower belly cramps, rectum cramps as well. Soon after I let gas out, the.cramps then go away. Is it early signs of labor?

Pregnant women at term get all sorts of strange sensations. Its sometimes hard to sort them all out; however, labor pain isn't usually associated with gas.

If some one 35 weeks pregnant uses cocain one time at 35 weeks how long will it take to get clean. ? And what are the chances of baby coming out dirty

Pregnancy & "coke": I wish this question was about the drinking kind of "Coke" (soda pop), but unfortunately the use of cocaine (one time?) during pregnancy has a severe impact on fetus & mother. Getting "clean" means no further use of the drug and indeterminate liver/kidney excretion rates. The treating OB MD must be informed immediately of cocaine use as the fetus may have withdrawal signs at delivery. ...Read more

16 weeks pregnant and have severe nausea and vomiting and at the ER, passed out took samples but no IV fluids, shouldn't we be hooked up to IV?

Depends...: It all depends on how dehydrated they estimated you were. If they thought that you could go by with oral fluids only most likely they understood that the best treatment option was just that. If you persist vomiting and not tolerating even small sips of liquid might be time to go back for reevaluation. For now try very small sips of fluid and maybe dry crackers to help your stomach feel better. ...Read more
