Yes: Internal monitoring requires that the bag of water is broken. If it is intact, the doctor will break the bag of water with a tiny plastic hook. If contractions need to be monitored, a small plastic tube (iupc) is slid into the uterus, it gets squeezed during contractions and monitors intensity. If the baby needs to be monitored a small heart rate monitor is attached to the baby's scalp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does internal fetal monitoring cause the baby to feel any discomfort? One was placed on my baby during l & d.
No: We can't ask the baby if he or she feels anything so it is impossible to answer. But, the monitor wire is only attached to the skin of the scalp and does not extend any deeper.

Durning my first ultra sound there is no heartbeat or fetus, I am about at 7 weeks, what's happening? I am 20 years old and very healthy
Hi. : Hi. This clearly is concerning for you. If it was a transvaginal ultrasound, a gestational sac might be visible at 5 weeks of gestation and the yolk sac would be seen shortly thereafter. Using the same type of ultrasound the fetal pole is often seen about 5 Â½ to 6 Â½ weeks. There might be a fetal heartbeat at that time. If there isnâ€™t a heartbeat and the fetal pole is not seen, the transvaginal ultrasound can be repeated in 3 to 7 days. By week 7, a heartbeat would be expected. You need to ask your doctor for an interpretation of the ultrasound results. Causes could be that the conception dates are off, a miscarriage, a blighted ovum or an ectopic pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more
