Pregnancy (Definition)

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.

Braxton hicks: Most likely they are practice contractions. I used to get them every time i stood up from a sitting position. Baby starts to move lower and reposition for labor which puts pain on your back. Good luck and congrats!

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.

Due to gall stones in neck position 9mm size with 37 weeks pregnancy. How to reduce sgot sgpt levels to perform cesarean as billirubin is ok?

Due to gall stones in neck position 9mm size with 37 weeks pregnancy. How to reduce sgot sgpt levels to perform cesarean as billirubin is ok?

Quoting merck: "Gallstones appear to be more common during pregnancy. Pregnant women who develop gallstones are closely monitored. If a gallstone blocks the gallbladder or causes an infection, surgery may be necessary. This surgery is usually safe for pregnant women and the fetus." http://www.merckmanuals.com/home/women-s-health-issues/pregnancy-complicated-by-disease/liver-and-gallbladder-disorders-during-pregn

Has anyone ever heard of the drug terbutaline for pregnancy?

Has anyone ever heard of the drug terbutaline for pregnancy?

Stop contractions: Terbutaline is a drug used most often to help stop the smooth muscle tightening in an asthma flare up if other meds are not working. It has been used to stop smooth muscle tightening produced by the uterus undergoing premature contractions. If you can stop the contractions, u may avoid premature birth. Before terbutaline, ethanol (IV) was used but had many undesired side effects for mom/baby.

If Each 5 ml contains:50mg glyceryl guaiacolate,50mgpotassium citrate,1.5mg terbutaline sulphate,14mg diphenhydramine hydrochloride.Safe for pregnancy?

If Each 5 ml contains:50mg glyceryl guaiacolate,50mgpotassium citrate,1.5mg terbutaline sulphate,14mg diphenhydramine hydrochloride.Safe for pregnancy?

Depends: The most susceptible time for the fetus is during the 1st trimester. After that, most allergy medication or cough medications are likely safe. Diphenhydramine has been associated with a slightly higher risk to develop cleft palate when used in the 1st trimester although the incidence is still very low.

I'm 37 weeks pregnant now and I felt a sharp pain in my upper right back since I was 35 weeks and I can still feel it now? What should I do?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant now and I felt  a sharp pain in my upper right back since I was 35 weeks and I can still feel it now? What should I do?

How bad is it?: As long as it isnt associated with any other symptoms, it's likely a pulled muscle. Let your OB know you are having this problem. They'd want to know.

I had my first child at 37 weeks is it possible to make the second one at 37 weeks? I am 37 weeks pregnant now and already lost mucus plug.

I had my first child at 37 weeks is it possible to make the second one at 37 weeks? I am 37 weeks pregnant now and already lost mucus plug.

ASK YOUR OB!!!!: You are not suppoose to induce or encourage labor at 37 weeks unless something is wrong because while that is considered term, the lungs are not always mature at 37 weeks, if you go into labor your self or your water breaks that is fine, if you want to stimulate contractions you should wait at least another week and call your OB for recs, i tell my pts certain things but you need to ask your ob.

I have the same hard lump in my breast in the same spot as when I was pregnant with my 19 month old I'm 37 weeks pregnant now. What could this be?28yo

I have the same hard lump in my breast in the same spot as when I was pregnant with my 19 month old I'm 37 weeks pregnant now. What could this be?28yo

Do not guess: Finding of a new mass in the breast especially if one sided, hard and persistent should prompt an urgent thorough history to assess the risk of cancer, and an examination which should always be followed by diagnostic imaging. Facilitate early detection by taking advantage of your breast self examination and seek a consult for proper assessment of your finding. Take care

Spotting.: Spotting or bleeding during pregnancy is one of those things that most obs want to know about. It could be harmless spotting, but you definitely need to let your OB know about this asap.

Any risk for clots for me or the baby??

Factor V Leiden: Carriers of the Factor V Leiden mutation are at elevated risk of pathologic clotting complications. This is why you are being treated with medication - Enoxaparin. Follow your doctors instruction for use. Typically this is continued for 6 weeks after delivery but individual cases must be managed by a doctor.

37 weeks 5 days pregnant, lost plug today been having back pain to now where i can't sleep, baby not meeting movement criteria... Labor? 6th baby

Go to hospital: Back pain that severe to the point you can't sleep can be a symptom of labor or something called an abruption (where placenta starts tearing away) and is not to be second guessed. Go to hospital now!

37 weeks pregnant and for the past 2 days now I've been having alittle of brownish/pinkish discharge? What could this be?

37 weeks pregnant and for the past 2 days now I've been having alittle of brownish/pinkish discharge? What could this be?

Hi: It may be nothing but I would let your Ob know. If your placenta is close to the opening of the uterus this could cause some bleeding. He would know this from one of your ultrasounds. If so this could be of concern. Otherwise if you have a fever and pain you also need to call them.

I am 37 weeks pregnant. He is head down but not engaged can he turn his position after 37 weeks. Or he will remain head down now.

I am 37 weeks pregnant. He is head down but not engaged can he turn his position after 37 weeks. Or he will remain head down now.

Possible.: It is possible to turn at any time, but certainly less likely as one gets closer to delivery and there is less room to turn. Can depend on how many previous pregnancies, if it is a multiple gestation, etc.

I am 37 weeks pregnant, last night and throughout the night i ended up having brown, watery discharge. Stopped now. Should i just ignore?

I am 37 weeks pregnant, last night and throughout the night i ended up having brown, watery discharge. Stopped now. Should i just ignore?

No.: You are close to term, so this is no time to ignore anything. Having said that, the main concerns would be cramps, pain, contractions, bloody or tissue discharge, not feeling the baby move, etc. My sense is that this is not serious, but you should contact your ob/gyn and not ignore it.

I am 37 weeks pregnant and have been using methamphetamine. If i was to quite now would it show up in my baby's system?

I am 37 weeks pregnant and have been using methamphetamine. If i was to quite now would it show up in my baby's system?

If they look for it: It is hard to remove all traces from a babies system but the sooner you stop, the less likely they will look for it. You baby is making poo that has traces in it, their hair if tested will show it, the urine may show it if you use within days of delivery.
