Would a D&C be performed if a mother is miscarrying at 37/38 weeks pregnancy? And if so, how soon before the patient is discharged?

Would a D&C be performed if a mother is miscarrying at 37/38 weeks pregnancy? And if so, how soon before the patient is discharged?

Term pregnancy: At that point, the pregnancy is full term and will be "stillborn." A sad situation and I feel for her.
She will likely have her labor induced and deliver vaginally if possible. The length of stay in the hospital will be similar to one for a regular birth. This assumes the mother doesn't have a complication such as an infection. ...Read more

This: This is something that should be reported to your doctor right away. You could be dealing with preeclampsia, which is defined as high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a woman who previously had normal blood pressure.
Nausea and headaches are both symptoms of this condition. This is a very serious issue and you need to be evaluated immediately if you have not done so already.
I hope you and baby are well.
All the best. ...Read more

Hi I'm 38 weeks and 3days pregnant to be exact, through out my 2nd and 3rd trimester I've had bad nausea this week is really bad, why?

Reflux: The further along you in your pregnancy the higher likelihood of reflux which can lead to nausea. As the baby grows, it pushes on the diaphragm which can reduce the stomach size and can the symptoms you describe. Eat smaller meals more frequently to alleviate some of your symptoms. Try Tums (calcium carbonate) as well. Feel better. ...Read more

I'm 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I'm experiencing nausea and loss of appetite. I'm eating because I know I have to. Should I call my dr?

Schedule check up: If you are nauseated the continuing to eat is probably not going to help. Schedule a follow up appointment to make sure everything is normal with your blood pressure. If so your doctor can give you some nausea medication to get you through the very short amount of time left being pregnant. ...Read more

I am 38 weeks pregnant and for some reason I like the smell of rubbing alcohol. It does help me when I am nausea or dizziness. I heard it could harm?

I am 38 weeks pregnant and for some reason I like the smell of rubbing alcohol. It does help me when I am nausea or dizziness. I heard it could harm?

Pregnant: alcohol: Rubbing alcohol, like any hydrocarbon liquid, if overdone can cause fainting and other serious problems. Just well ventilated areas and casual smelling of rubbing alcohol should be safe, but if dizziness occurs, you have done too much of it! It will not harm the pregnancy at 38 weeks, but if you faint, trauma from the fall could injure yourself and potentially at least, your baby. ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant with nausea, back cramps and gas, could it be signs of labor?

38 weeks pregnant with nausea, back cramps and gas, could it be signs of labor?

Could be...: If the back cramps become regular and progressively stronger, these symptoms would be compatible with labor. Start timing, lay back and relax in between. If the pain is continuous and not intermittent like early labor, then you need more urgent evaluation as this would not be normal at this point and could point to a problem. ...Read more

I have terrible acid reflux causing nausea and vomitting and I'm 38 weeks pregnant I have tried milk, Zantac, (ranitidine) thumbs and nothing helps. Normal?

I have terrible acid reflux causing nausea and vomitting and I'm 38 weeks pregnant I have tried milk, Zantac, (ranitidine) thumbs and nothing helps. Normal?

Normal: At 38 weeks the baby is pushing on all the internal organs, especially the stomach and it's contents. Try eating much smaller meals and stay upright for at least an hour after eating. Hard but worth it. Tetralac, and antacid, has seemed to help my pregnant patients more than others and is safe to take. Elevated the head of the bed, it may also help. Congratulations and good luck. ...Read more

Should I wait to take another pregnancy test I took one yesterday afternoon and it was negative. Butt im having nausea and headaches and spotting?

Should I wait to take another pregnancy test I took one yesterday afternoon and it was negative. Butt im having nausea and headaches and spotting?

Maybe later: If symptoms are related to menses or pregnancy: home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon. A urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. A woman can repeat the test if she did the first test too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Hi I am 15 days late on my cycle, have high nausea increased CM and headaches but 2 negative HPT. Is it possible for me to still be pregnant? Confuse

Not likely: If you did the test correctly, at 15 days after a missed period and it was negative, you are not pregnant. You may have hormonal disturbance that is causing these symptoms. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

If I had sex on the 3rd and my cycle is due today could I be pregnant and if so when should I test I have be having headaches nausea back pains and cr?

If your period: If you had sex on the 3rd and your period is due today, that means you had sex in your most fertile time. If your period doesn't start, check a pregnancy test tommorow and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days to be sure. Your headaches, nausea, backache, and cramps could be due to pregnancy or could be something else. Hope this helps. ...Read more
