37 weeks pregnant 2 and a half CM dilated having bad pelvic pain is it normal also having stomach ache bad like if i need to go to the restroom?

37 wks pregnant: At 37 weeks, the fetus settles into the upper birth canal, and presses on your colon, causing pain and the feeling of needing to have a bowel movement. This is exaggerated if you are also constipated, a common condition of pregnancy. See your obstetric provider and get a mild laxative preparation. Dilation at 2.5 cm is also an indication that the presenting part of the fetus is low in the canal. ...Read more

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

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
