35 weeks pregnant, having cold & feeling sharp pain in my abdomen while coughing. Is it normal? Or should I contact my ob? Thanks for any help.

Contact OB: This does not sound terribly concerning, but not knowing anything about your history, I would think that it would be reasonable to contact your doctor.

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Worsening: Worsening abdominal pain during pregnancy is a reason to call your ob/gyne doctor or go to the emergency room. There are many benign things it could be: muscle cramping, ligament pain, kidney stone, intestinal problem or it could be something more dangerous. You should be seen as soon as possible to rule out a problem with the baby.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant but ultrasound shows babys head at 36 w, abdomen 34, femur 33weeks 5 days... Should I be concerned? ?

I'm 35 weeks pregnant but ultrasound shows babys head at 36 w, abdomen 34, femur 33weeks 5 days... Should I be concerned? ?

No: All of those datings are within the margin of error for 35 weeks. Dating by measurements in the third trimester is quite unreliable and as you see with your baby, can vary by several weeks either way. Congratulations, and you are almost there - get lots of rest and pamper yourself before your time is up!

Prob. Muscle spasm: Pl check with your OB if pain recurs or u notice any bleeding, who would probably order a routine US to make sure the growing fetus is doing OK.

CALL YOUR OB NOW!!!: U shoudl have already called you ob, u need evaluation, if you were my pt I would send you staright to the labor room for evaluation, u need to make sure u are not in premature labor and everything is ok inside the uterus with the baby and placenat don't delay.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant pain and cramps in lower abdomen and back. Hurts very much when I walk changing positions dosent help> can it be labor? Help pleas

Possibly labor: Lower abdominal cramps or back pain at 35 weeks pregnant could be early labor. If it doesn't go away quickly, or with changing position, it sounds like time to go to the hospital.

I am 35 weeks pregnant & have a dry non productive cough, sore throat & sore chest can I take musinex dm & cepacol at the same time?

I am 35 weeks pregnant & have a dry non productive cough, sore throat & sore chest can I take musinex dm & cepacol at the same time?

Check with your doc: Pregnancy is always a tough issue. We do not want to put the child into danger. Mucinex (guaifenesin) and cepacol will probably not help much anyway. Hall's are over the counter and probably ok.

35 weeks pregnant, horrible lingering cough from bronchitis. Nothing seems to help, doc out of town, any advice on what to take? Been 4 weeks.

35 weeks pregnant, horrible lingering cough from bronchitis. Nothing seems to help, doc out of town, any advice on what to take? Been 4 weeks.

Z pack: If it were me I would seek out another clinic or physician who can prescribe a z pack or similar medication for the bronchitis. Pregnancy lowers your immune system, and if you've been suffering for 4 weeks, it's time to add an antibioitic. Maybe even a little steroid. I'll let your primary care doctor be the judge of your prescription, but defnitely be seen and get a prescription.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and I have had a cold for the past couple of weeks and just the past few days my cold has went away but the cough stayed...

Not to worry.: If you had cough and cold, you probably have a virus infection. There is no cure for this type of infection. The cold is gone so you are already getting better. Cough might take a while to go away. As long as you don't have fever and chest pain, don't worry. Due to your pregnancy avoid any type of medicines if you can.

35 weeks pregnant: Not uncommon at 35 weeks. Hopefully you see your obstetrician regularly to discuss this. If not please make an appointment or at least call the office. Ps: my twin granddaughters, now age 7, were delivered very early and very small, and are doing just fine - great girls and your baby will have good care at delivery and beyond.

I am 35 weeks pregnant and about two weeks ago I developed a really bad cough. It's been getting worse and nothing helps. Should I be worried?

Unlikely: A viral infection has been very prevalent this winter. You may ask your doctor if they suggest antibiotics. Most likely it may need to run its course over a couple of weeks.

35 weeks pregnant. Previously diagnosed with bronchiectasis. Now having strep throat and coughing with green mucus. Wondering if dtor's prescrip of co azithromycin250 mg for 5 days can treat both?

35 weeks pregnant. Previously diagnosed with bronchiectasis. Now having strep throat and coughing with green mucus. Wondering if dtor's prescrip of co azithromycin250 mg for 5 days can treat both?

Depends....: If the bacteria causing the strep throat and bronchitis are sensitive to the azithromycin, then it will treat both. But, because of the bronchiectasis, you may have some lung bacteria that may not be sensitive to azithromycin. So, if the green sputum persists, or if your symptoms worsen, see your doctor again. You may need a sputum culture to find out what bacteria are causing the bronchitis!

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and only at nite is my pelvic area very sore when I move or if I get up u have to limp is this normal what is going on?!

Normal: The baby places pressure on the blood supply to your legs and pelvic region, and also causes decreased return of blood to the heart. This causes swelling of the pelvis, hip, and back pain. Please try laying on your left or right side instead of your back. Good luck.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant I have a sore throat my body sore and im having pains in my stomach im baily eating and have a headache what do I do?

Arrange for eval: The vague collection of symptoms you cite could be a virus or strep. If you've kept up with your fluid needs enough to pee at least every 6 hrsyou can wait & arrange to see your pcp or OB tomorrow. If you feel rotten & dehydrated see someone sooner. In the mean time try sips of cold fluids & something light like noodle soup. You need some energy.
