I am 35 weeks pregnant, having contractions every 6 minutes for the past 2 days! I am in extremely terrible pain! I feel like me and my unborn baby are at great risk to harm. I know my body, and I know when somethings not right. My doctor refuses to tal
One thing that is positive is that even though you have not been aware of fetal movement for the last two days that your baby has a heartbeat and is alive. Normal fetal heart rate is 120 to 160 beats per minute. Fetal bradycardia is less than 120 beats per minute for 10 minutes or longer. Fetal tachycardia is a heart rate of that is faster than 160 beats per minute for 10 minutes or more. Early decelerations occur when the fetal heart rate is below baseline and return to the baseline by the end of the contraction. It is a normal response. In late decelerations, the fetal heart rate drops well after the contraction starts begins and return to baseline after the contraction ends. There are also variable decelerations. They will normally study the the decelerations to determine if they are normal. If the decelerations are abnormal, they would then take whatever medical actions were appropriate.

35 weeks pregnant, is it real contractions or braxton hicks one every few hours? Hurts so bad I have to crouch over and breath deeply till it stops
Braxton Hicks: You are probably having Braxton Hicks contractions. These contractions can sometimes be quite painful. Make sure that you stay hydrated. Labor pains usually become more frequent and stronger with time. You are considered in labor only when the pains cause your cervix to become thinner and the cervix starts dilating. Call your Doctor if yor have vaginal bleeding, or your condition worsens. ...Read more

Lucky you!: Maybe the position of the baby has changed to make you more comfortable. As long as you are feeling good movement from your baby, all is probably well. It is common to have occasional contractions that come and go as you get further along in your pregnancy. If you have painful, regular contraction more than 6 in an hour or your water breaks, call your doctor or midwife. ...Read more

Lots of possibilitie: Assuming you don't have a placenta previa, brown discharge at 35weeks pregnant is most likely not anything bad - but needs to be reported to your doctor. Some common causes: early ctx's with a little cervical softening or dilation (preterm labor) can cause this; sometimes vaginitis (yeast or bv) can cause; intercourse can cause) - less often: could be leaking amniotic fluid; small abruption. ...Read more
Mucus plug?: Hard to know. I wonder if this might be the mucus plug or "bloody show" which occurs before labor starts. Since brown discharge may be blood, ask your doctor about this, particularly since you are still early. I trust you are not having contractions or other abdominal pain. And I trust that you are feeling plenty of baby movement. Check with your doctor to be sure about this. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
Dilated and effaced: These terms refer to your cervix. 3 cm dilated means that the circumference of your cervical opening is 3 cm. Effacement refers to how flat your cervix is. A cervix can go to 10 cm or "fully dilated" and 100% effaced or "fully flattened". ...Read more

No: Narcotics are not generally thought to be dangerous for development, especially in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Babies in utero can, however, become dependent on such medications. Therefore, the shortest duration of treatment is advised--especially around the timing of delivery. Babies who are exposed to narcotics right before delivery can have (treatable) sleepiness and slow breathing. ...Read more
I'm 35 weeks pregnant and yesterday I started feeling a discomfort in my vaginal area? What does this mean?
Several possibility: Some women will experience pressure in the vagina from the weight of the baby.

Also increased blood flow and changes in the vagina in late pregnancy can cause the vagina to feel a little swollen or uncomfortable. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant. Lately I have just lost my appetite I have to force myself to eat meals/snacks is this normal?
May not be.: The last few weeks of pregnancy the fetal growth is accelerated and you should be eating well. In addition the fetus typically engages in your pelvis and descends from your upper abdomen, so you should expect the stomach fullness to get better soon. If your anorexia persists, mention it to your obstetrician and consider getting a growth ultrasound to make sure the fetus is still growing well. ...Read more
