What are the chances of a miscarriage of a medium SCH that is in front of a 6 week baby with some tissue between. Massive bleeding but has stopped?

Can not quantify: Subchorionic hematoma are quite common in the first trimester. Most will resolve on their own. The miscarriage risk is higher in those with a SCH. It is also higher with advanced maternal age. There is not a treatment to prevent miscarriage in this circumstance. I wish you the best outcome possible. ...Read more

Reflux: in a baby can cause nasal congestion. Have your pediatrician check your baby to make sure there is no structural abnormality. If none, consider that the acid environment from reflux can lead to swelling of the nasal mucosa that will not respond to saline irrigation and suction. An antacid will help. ...Read more

My six week baby has been fuzzy since yesterday & she's been spitting up a cottage cheese type looking milk she's on reflux med don't know what to do?

See you doctor: She may need her reflux meds or formula changed. She might have a condition that occurs at about that age that stops milk from passing from the stomach to the intestine. Or it might be something really simple, like over feeding. The only way to know for sure is to look at the baby and get more details from you about what is going on. See your pediatrician. ...Read more

How soon can I try to get pregnant after a miscarriage 6 week baby ? And can do safe guard intercourse in this time or after 2 week? Or don't? I'm 25

Wait 2 cycles: First of all, I'm sorry for your loss. I recommend waiting until you have 2 normal periods before you try again, to allow the uterus to heal from the miscarriage. It may be a while before you have your first period, as the hormones from the pregnancy have to drop first. ...Read more

How soon can I try to get pregnant after a miscarriage 6 week baby ? And can do safe guard intercourse in this time or after 2 week? I'm 26 old

Ask OB: It really depends on a lot of factors. Your general health, the condition surrounding the miscarriage, did you lose a lot of blood, if you went through D&C. Usually they want you wait to try to get pregnant after two-three cycles, it just means if you're having regular cycles then uterus is ready. Wait two weeks for intercourse with or without protection. ...Read more

My 6 week baby has yellow diarrhea for two days, as of today it's been in every diaper plus diaper rash & blood show from butt cheek i'm worried.?

Normal infant stool: Water, yellow, seedy stool in infants can be watery and frequent and "normal." the diaper rash is due to chemical irritation from the stool and urine sitting on the skin. The blood may be from excoriation or a mild fissure. If your baby is healthy, feeding and growing nicely-don't sweat this. Are you exclusively breast feeding? Check with you pediatrician for support. ...Read more
