Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Hi, is it possible to have an labor pain even if i had abortion on the 9th week of pregnancy? (01/27/13) have lots of pain for 2days now.

Hi, is it possible to have an labor pain even if i had abortion on the 9th week of pregnancy? (01/27/13) have lots of pain for 2days now.

Not labor pain: The pain you're experiencing 8-9 months after an abortion would not be related to that procedure. However, your pain does need investigation. I suggest a visit to your primary care physician or obgyn. If the pain is very intense -- go to er since it's saturday. Be well. ...Read more

Is constant pain in lumbar left side normal in 40th week of pregnancy? No signs of active labor. Pain doesn't allow for waking and sitting.

Not normal but seen: Constant back pain limiting basic activities of daily living (e.g. Walking or sitting) isn't normal; not even at 40 week of pregnancy. The weight gain, the "basketball" & surge in hormone preparing pelvic bones for delivery may contribute to the problem. Constant severe activity limiting pain should be discussed with ob. C-section is considered as the condition may interfere w/ vaginal delivery. ...Read more

I go to hospital in 34 week than doctor says baby head is down now I am 39 week pregnant but not start labor pain can baby change position these days?

Breech: Rare to have the baby change from vertex to breech at 39 weeks. Not a lot of room for baby to move at this time except you have a lot of amniotic fluid around the baby which will expand or create a lot of room for baby to flip from head down to buttocks down. It is expected that labor pain will start anytime. If not after 41-42weeks most places in the usa will induce. Good luck. ...Read more

I am having period like cramps and I am 36 weeks pregnant but when i go to labor and delivery thy say I am just dehydrated could it be real labor pain?

YOu should: Be discussing this with your OB ! the only way to tell is to get on monitor either in your ob's offcie or the labor room, if u were my pt and u are not in labor i would offer to induce u at 39 weeks the earliest time it is acceptable to do an elective induction, i frequently do that and my pts are so happy they don't have to suffer any more, it is safe and works 99% of the time when I do it. ...Read more

Depends: Livigen is iron and frolic acid and would be fine in a normal pregnancy. The abnormal lab values are concerning and I would need to know why they are elevated to say for sure that anything is safe. Good luck. ...Read more

36w4d pregnant. Pret. Labor stopped @ 33 weeks. Severe menstal like cramps for the past 5 hours with pain in lower back and hips. What could this be?

Labor: Sounds like it could be onset of labor.

I'm 33 weeks pregnant ..my husband is away i need to know signs of labor so he could be here by the time of delivery ?

Rhythmic contraction: Rhythmic contractions which are timed in decreasing intervals of less than 10 minutes. I am surprised that your treating OB MD has not addressed this topic with you already. Good luck with getting husband home in time as sometimes the baby takes the "express train". ...Read more

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and can't hold my bowel movements for that long with bad camps and lower back aches is this a sign of early labor? Oh I'm just g

No: It is simply the pressure of the baby upon the coon and rectum and does not represent early labor. If the abdomen is "tightening" in response to the "backaches" rhythmically and can be timed, then those may be early labor contractions. ...Read more

Im 33 weeks pregnant. And im on lovenox (enoxaparin). My ob told me if i go into labor before my scheduled csection they would have to put me to sleep. Why is that?

Epidural hematoma: If your blood is overly thinned you would have a chance of epidural hematoma which could have devastating effects on your health. Lovenox (enoxaparin) is more difficult to reverse than heparin, but it's easier to use. I'm surprised you have to come to healthtap to get an explanation of the treatment regimen your doctor gave you. You should be able to ask your doctor these questions, but i'm glad to help out. ...Read more
