Pregnancy (Definition)

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?

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

Will I be ok to put a permanent colour on my hair being 41 weeks pregnant

Will I be ok to put a permanent colour on my hair being 41 weeks pregnant

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?

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?

Your choice: 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.

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?

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
