Want pics of fetus week by week?

Want pics of fetus week by week?

Not possible: Whereas it would be great to be able to see a fetus develop week by week throughout pregnancy, it just isn't feasible. Insurance companies will not pay for the ultrasounds and doctor's offices are primarily focused on the diagnostic aspects of ultrasound. Anticipate a possible dating scan, 18-20 week anatomy/ level 2 scan, then depending on clinical picture a scan in the third trimester. ...Read more

Can a fetus develop a cleft lip after 21 weeks? Just had my 35 week ultrasound and there's a big line in the upper lip in her face pictures. Worried

Can a fetus develop a cleft lip after 21 weeks?  Just had my 35 week ultrasound and there's a big line in the upper lip in her face pictures.  Worried

No: The direct answer to your question is no. Cleft lip is a defect of development that occurs early. It is typically discovered at your 20 week ultrasound, and if good pictures were obtained at that time, then you have little to worry about. It is not something that can occur at 35 weeks, but would conceivably be discovered at that time if not seen earlier. ...Read more

I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. The hospital I went to shows no signs of a fetus. My hCG levels are normal and I have ultrasound pics from my doctor.?

I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. The hospital I went to shows no signs of a fetus. My hCG levels are normal and I have ultrasound pics from my doctor.?

???: Don't know what you mean "hospital shows no signs of a fetus". An ultrasound was done showing an empty uterus? "hcg levels are normal" - what does this mean? Hcg is not elevated, i.e., consistent with not being pregnant? If elevated, what's the level? Simply because you have sono pix from your doctor at some point doesn't mean you're still pregnant, but need more information. ...Read more

Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Not sure: Generally, nine days after an embryo transfer, you draw your blood for a HCG level. Most clinics do not measure estrogen. If the results are low, it is generally indicative that you may not be pregnant. At our clinic, even if the levels are low, we repeat them in 3-4 days, "just to be sure". Sometimes, but not often, low e2 or HCG levels can result in a good pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

40yrs.Old, pcos, 1st IVF cycle w/genetic testing. Four day 5 embryos - all chromosomally abnormal. Worth another try? 39 eggs were retrieved, 19 fert.

Talk to the prenatal: Genetic counselor at the fertility clinic. Age-related odds are greater than 50% that each of your embryos has aneuploidy, an abnormal number of chromosomes, many of which either won't implant or wion't be carried to term. Age-related risk of having a child with autistic spectrum disorder is also high. Discuss options with your tac doctor to make an informed decision. It's a personal choice. ...Read more

What are the effects of general anesthesia from surgery on a four week fetus?

What are the effects of general anesthesia from surgery  on a four week fetus?

Unknown: It is hard totellwhat the effects might be because no one will do a study on pregnant women. In general, it is best to put off any elective surgery and anesthesia until pregnancy is over. If you can't for some reason, the anesthesiologist will select the agents and techniques least likely to cause problems. ...Read more

A tick bit me and believe it was a deer tick  but it was still flat compared to the pictures of an engorged tick. Red spot where the bite was with a faded pinkish ring around it i'd say it he whole area was the size of a knickle and four days later its al

Tick bite: There are several infections possible from a tick bite. Most are concerned about lyme disease. Small chance of infection if you removed the tick within 48 hours of attachment. The typical sign is the reddish spot where the tick was surrounded by a larger red ring that usually is very much larger than a nickle. See doctor if you have fever with headache and muscle and joint pains. ...Read more

My quadruple test reveal a trisomy 21 chances 1:2309..and my age risk is 1:1416...nt measuresha 2mm at 12week 2 days...chances of trisomy 21 in fetus?

Low: All of these tests are screening tests meaning they tell you if there is an increased chance versus decreased chance of your baby having down syndrome. Based on the Quad result having less likely chance of downs than your age and a normal NT measurement, there is a very low likelihood of the baby having trisomy 21. ...Read more

Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child? .

Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child?

.

Possible, unlikely.: Maternal anemia is grossly overdiagnosed during pregnancy in the U.S.; british studies have proven that the best maternal hemoglobin is 9-11 g/dl as a nadir around 28 weeks. If you are in that range you and the baby are just fine. I would get concerned if this gets below 8-9 g/dl and try oral iron supplementation. Consider electrophoresis if never done before to exclude hemoglobinopathies. ...Read more

Need medical visit: You need a thorough evaluation by an OB/Gyne doctor. At that visit you can discuss what options are available to you. You can check out your nearest Planned Parenthood clinic and they will also be able to advise and assist you if seeing your regular doctor is not an option.

Lmp-8th mar, bfp-7th apr, 28 day cycle, early us on 17 apr -embryo viability inconclusive and growth is 4+/5 weeks. Gsac, ysac present.Gsac-8x7x7.Is good?

Needs follow up: In some cases the viability of the pregnancy cannot be confirmed by ultrasound until 6 weeks from the lmp, or even later. The size of the gestational sac is not the most accurate way of documenting a live pregnancy. Only by visualizing the fetus with a vaginal sonogram and seeing (or hearing with doppler) the fetal heart beat can one confirm if viable. ...Read more
