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

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.

37 weeks & 2 days pregnant, feeling urinating like pressure in abdomen. I mean full bladder lik feeling. But when urinating it was small amount only. Why?

Late Pregnancy: This is both common and obvious. Not sure why the question. Your uterus is so big that there is little room for your bladder. When the bladder cannot expand well then one has to pee more frequently. Normal. ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks pregnant having a lot of back pain and short sharp pains in abdomen baby dropped last week could I be going into labor?

It's possible: Braxton Hicks contractions are "false" labor, which is when the muscle fibers of the uterus begin practicing for the real deal. It's annoying for sure, but also reassuring that your body is just getting ready. Make sure you're following up with your care provider for exams to confirm. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and did a scan that says fetal abdominal Ascites and bilateral fetal scrotal hydrocele were noticed?

I am 37 weeks pregnant and did a scan that says fetal abdominal Ascites and bilateral fetal scrotal hydrocele were noticed?

Here are some...: I would no jump into the conclusion by the one ultrasound image; it is reasonable to wait and see with repeating another ultrasound in 4-5 weeks for comparison as long as fetal growth and your healthy state in line with a normally expected pregnancy and since it is hard to do anything about it if any fetal congenital abnormality has formed. More? Ask your obs-gyn doctor for detail. Best wish... ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant and each day my tummy has been rock hard. What does this mean?

Contractions: When the muscles of the uterus contract, this causes a sensation of 'hardness' in the abdomen. These are likely contractions. There can be preterm contractions (these do not cause the cervix to open), and preterm labor contractions (these cause the cervix to open). Make sure your doc knows about these and if necessary, checks your cervix to make sure you're not dilating. ...Read more
