I am 37 weeks pregnant and having a lot pain in pelvis area when I am lying or try to stand having lying down, lost mucus plug 2 days ago. Explain?

Normal Changes: Early labor or late pregnancy, one of the changes that occurs as your infant drops is the loosening of the pelvic girdle. One of the hormones produced in pregnancy allows this to happen otherwise it would be very difficult to have vaginal deliveries. If the pain is severe, get checked to make sure you're not in labor, try a support garment and hang in there; so far it sounds normal. Take care. ...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

I am 37 weeks/4 days pregnant & had my bpp done today. I was told my baby has dropped. How far should the fetus' head drop into the pelvis before labor?

I am 37 weeks/4 days pregnant & had my bpp done today. I was told my baby has dropped. How far should the fetus' head drop into the pelvis before labor?

All the way: When you start labor, the baby's head will eventually drop fully down into the pelvic bowl, which is the entrance to the birth canal. This will be happening over the next several weeks.

You should have your "go bag" packed and sitting by the door. It won't be long now! :-). ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant, and having pain in my lower right side right around my hip from about mid pelvis into my lower back. Not contractions?

Probably normal: It is common for women in late pregnancy to have all kinds of mechanical pains in the low back, large joints like your hips, knees, etc. Uterine contractions can also cause low back pains or pains that radiate into the back but meaningful contractions are usually 30-60 seconds and come at some interval. These complaints sound more mechanical than contractions. ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks pregnant with vaginal burning and pelvic pain as well as what seems to be occasional vaginal leaking, is this normal?

No.: Pelvic pain in pregnancy can be normal due to requirements of your hip bones to shift to support the weight of your growing baby. Vaginal burning however is never normal and in the setting of vaginal leaking needs to be evaluated by a doctor. Your pregnancy is at risk of the bag of water breaking and that actually increases the risk of an infection that affects your baby. ...Read more

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
