41 Weeks Pregnant In Children
Within normal: 41 weeks is still within normal, but you should really be asking your OB about this. If you don't have one yet, now's the time! ...Read more
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Depends: If you have a favorable cervix for induction or not. IF cervix is favorable, Bishop score of 6 or more, and if you and the baby are average size, it should go well. I presume you have a vertex presentation ...Read more
Talk to your doctor: If you have any desire to hurt yourself or your baby or anyone else, see your doctor. If you are tired of being pregnant and anxious/eager to have your baby, talk to your doctor. At 41 weeks induction should be considered. ...Read more
Don't do it!!: C-section should be avoided unless your doctor thinks it is medically necessary. Induction increases the risks of needing a c-section, but you you never "choose" this. It is riskier for you and for the baby! ...Read more
41 weeks pregnant. Had a little spotting when I wipe I was told it was normal, a little concerned since spotting has increased. Is this normal?
L;D: At 41 weeks, most doctors would recommend induction of labor to avoid a possible intrauterine fetal demise. While some doctors feel comfortable going to 42 weeks, I think it's reasonable to go to l;d and see if you're dilated and possibly stay at hospital for induction or augmentation of labor. While no across the board consensus on induction at 41 weeks, *most* doctors do induce at this point. ...Read more

I am pregnant (3rd trimester) and find myself stretching/flexing my abdominals. What impact does this have on the baby?
No: Impact on baby. Just keeping you healthy. Don't overdo it! ...Read more
Should be OK:
Being at 41 wk, you are likely pop any second now--your doc probably won't want you to go much longer anyway. Coloring your hair now probably won't harm the baby, but you probably won't be looking your best during and after delivery and so having your hair done after may make more sense. But what do I know, I am a guy! :-)
congrats on the pregnancy and good luck. ...Read more
What to do if I have no problems with my pregnancy but my doctor still booked an induction for 41 weeks (i'm 40+3) what if I refuse to have it done?
But the standard of care is to deliver the baby by 41 weeks. You should either trust your doctor or find one you trust. It appears he is giving proper care. Complications for the baby have been shown to increase after 41 weeks gestation. If you think you know how to better care for your pregnancy (you don't), then refuse his good advice.
This is dexamethasone, a corticosteroid which could be dangerous to a developing fetus, as well as the mother.
Don't take it. ...Read more

I am 41 weeks pregnant. Had a cervical sweep and was 1-2cm dilated. Could I go into labour soon? I am not in any pain
NO!: Do not use afrin or any other nasal decongestant (claritin-d, allegra-d) throughout pregnancy, as it can cause unsafe spikes in your blood pressure, stroke, placental abruption, or even fetal loss! Plain oral antihistamines (not -d), nasal saline spray may be used instead, as may nasal steroids with medical supervision. ...Read more
Unfortunately: Although such tests have been described, they have not been broadly developed because of the resistance against vitamin therapy or prevention. For example, a test called red cell transketolase would show whether you have deficiency of vitamin B1 but I do not know of a laboratory that does this test ...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

Should I quite taking my ADHD medication since I'm pregnant, even though I'm in my 3rd trimester and not worry about withdrawal and coping without it?
Yes you should!: Even in the third semester, medication can be risky. Stimulant medication does cross the placental barrier to the fetus and the best example of the risk is seen in so called "crack babies" who suffer withdrawal right after birth in mothers who continue to use crack while pregnant. You may not worry about your own withdrawal but should worry about the newborn's withdrawal. Do the right thing, stop. ...Read more
