May deliver early: Call your OB and he/she may say you should be on bed rest in hospital under close observation. The good thing is that your child is almost fully cooked (36 weeks). The longer your child can stay in your oven the better it is. In hospital the child's heart can be monitored and if labor starts too early they can try to stop it. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

36 weeks pregnant 2 1/2 cm dialated lower back pain?

Ok: This sounds like a very common scenario in a near-term pregnancy. The limited information you've provided is not necessarily a sign of impending delivery but could be depending on how quickly things are changing. Certainly though, your obstetrician is the only appropriate person to give you a proper assessment here. Don't be afraid to ask him or her! ...Read more

Anemia of pregnancy: Pregnant women are anemic for two main reasons. The elevated levels of female hormones during pregnancy cause water to be retained thus diluting the red blood cells in the blood resulting in HGB's of 10.0 =/- 1.0. The other cause is iron deficiency. There are several forms of oral iron. Also increase your consumption of iron containing foods. Your anemia will resolve with your delivery in 4 weeks. ...Read more

I am 36 weeks pregnant and at minus two...What does that mean?

No worries.: It means that the baby's head has not yet applied well to your pelvis - which is a good thing (head feels like it is ~2 centimeters above your ischial spines, which is the base of your bony pelvis). Keep up with all your prenatal care appointments - and best of luck! ...Read more

Mucus plug: It sounds like you have lost your mucus plug. This happens as the cervix begins to thin, relax and shorten in preparation for delivery. This does not necessarily mean delivery is eminent. It may be 2 weeks or more before actual labor begins. If you notice any loss of fluid, bleeding or pain, it is time for an evaluation. ...Read more

Need appt!: May be a number of things but at this stage in your pregnancy you need to be checked asap! Infections in the mother can lead to preterm labor and delivery - like a urine infection. Stay hydrated and get into your MD tomorrow - if rapidly worsens go to the hospital ER to make sure the pregnancy is not at risk. http://www.webmd.com/baby/tc/preterm-labor-cause ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks 2 days pregnant with twins and my legs are swollen from my upper thighs all the way to my toes. It hurt to walk and bend my knees.

I'm 36 weeks 2 days pregnant with twins and my legs are swollen from my upper thighs all the way to my toes. It hurt to walk and bend my knees.

See your OB: You are probably seeing your OB weekly now, and they should be monitoring you for toxemia. If you are not developing it, this is exaggerated pregnancy swelling, due to the enlarged uterus carrying twins. You need to elevate your feet as much as possible. Drink lots of water to flush your kidneys. If you have access to one, just floating in a pool can lift the babies up off your pelvis. ...Read more
