Due to gall stones in neck position 9mm size with 37 weeks pregnancy. How to reduce sgot sgpt levels to perform cesarean as billirubin is ok?

Quoting merck: "Gallstones appear to be more common during pregnancy. Pregnant women who develop gallstones are closely monitored. If a gallstone blocks the gallbladder or causes an infection, surgery may be necessary. This surgery is usually safe for pregnant women and the fetus." http://www.merckmanuals.com/home/women-s-health-issues/pregnancy-complicated-by-disease/liver-and-gallbladder-disorders-during-pregn ...Read more

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Reason for checking: I suppose the answer would vary depending on why it was checked. If there were certain symptoms or problems then the tests need to be analyzed in that context. Simply looking at only these numbers with no context they do not appear particularly abnormal for the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. The doctor who ordered them will be in the best position to interpret them. ...Read more

Be Patient: At 37 weeks, you should not be in a rush. Some babies are still finishing their lung development at 37 weeks. Hang in there and be patient for the next couple of weeks and let nature take its course. Blessings, ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and i'm 3 CM dialated and 70% effaced does this mean i'm gonna be having my baby soon or could it still be weeks to come ?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and i'm 3 CM dialated and 70% effaced  does this mean i'm gonna be having my baby soon or could it still be weeks to come ?

Could be anytime!: By that, i mean that you could go into labor tonight - or you might still be pregnant a month from now! certainly, the fact that your cervix is 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced (thinned) is evidence that your body is getting ready. I had one woman who was 5 cm dilated for several weeks! everybody thought that baby was just going to fall out! so do the best you can to be patient (!); time will pass. ...Read more
