I am 13 weeks pregnant and my baby is head down already should I worry?

I am 13 weeks pregnant and my baby is head down already should I worry?

13 weeks.: For this 25 yo female at 13 weeks gestation with fetal head down. The fetus will continue to move and rotate inside the uterine cavity which is also very crucial in the development of the muskuloskeletal system. The position and presentation gets steady from 36 to 37 weeks gestation in preparation for onset of labor. Thus there is nothing to worry about now. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 34 weeks pregnant and my baby is already head down and the fundus measured 40cm is that normall?

No.: You have a size-dates discrepancy from your description. Your doctor/midwife should refer you for a maternal-fetal medicine ultrasound and consultation to determine what is causing this; it could be a fluke from excess maternal abdominal wall thickness, or true due to a large fetus, too much fluid in the pregnancy sac, uterine fibroids or fetal anomalies such as hydrops or sacrococcygeal teratoma. ...Read more

We have a cat and are wondering the things that we need to look out for now that we are pregnant. My cat sleeps above my head as of right now?

Cat Litter: The concern for having a cat in pregnancy is a parasite they carry called toxoplasmosis. This is enhaled by a mom from dried feces in soil or litter. Most house cats have never killed or eaten a mouse or rat so are at very low risk. I recommend letting someone else empty the litter and wearing a mask and gloves if gardening where cats may go. Usually not necc to get rid of the cat. ...Read more

I just found out I m pregnant and I deal also with aniexty and I have been having strange tingles on the top of my head. I'm not sure what it is?

Stress: When we become stress we can hyperventilate. This causes the blood ph to change which affects the nerve conduction, hence the tingling. Lack of certain vitamins can cause this also. Ask yourself what being pregnant means and how it will affect your life. Get prenatal care. Best of luck with your decision. ...Read more

So by my daughters head being small (in size) is there any possibility that it will grow at normal size later on in my pregnancy? Help and add details

So by my daughters head being small (in size) is there any possibility that it will grow at normal size later on in my pregnancy? Help and add details

Hard to say: There are normal infants that have small head size & this usually matches small body size. That kid would be expected to retain a small but normal head size at birth. Normal head growth reflects the need to accommodate the growing tissues inside. If something like the Zika virus injures the tissue, the head becomes abnormally small while the body remains normal. ...Read more
