However, most women are going to have at least one ultrasound at 18 to 21 weeks, the ideal time to evaluate for normal fetal structures. There will likely be additional sono's if there is a problem with the size of the uterus (abdominal measurements), gestational diabetes, elevated blood pressure, etc. ...Read more

1 y old baby was exclusively breastfed till 10 months. Still bf but refuses solids. Eats minimal amount. No weight gain for 2 months. What could be done?
I would suggest supplementing with formula and discussing a nutrition evaluation with your PCP.
Very often poor weight gain may be due to a decrease in caloric intake. I would also suggest reviewing the results of her Newborn Screening panel, including a CF screening test. Offering a variety of baby food and reintroducing the same food multiple times is important. ...Read more

My baby is 16 months old and I'm still nursing. For the past month I've notice weight gain. I weighted myself and what was on the scale was unbelievab?
Excess calories: Initially, an 2 month old infant may drink 32 oz of breast milk daily, and your calorie needs to maintain weight are even greater than during pregnancy. Usually an infant will decrease milk intake when eating solids, and a lot of "nursing" after 10-12 months is comfort nursing, so milk production goes down and your need for calories decreases. You gain wt if you are eating the same as before. ...Read more

I'm 5"4 127lbs and this is my first child and I am 25 weeks should I be worried about my babys weight gain because im not showing big for 6 mnths?
1-2 ultrasounds help: An ultrasound study of fetal size knowing LMP helps. A baby is not considered to have growth restriction until very small (usually <10th %ile compared with others the same age). Having 2 ultrasounds can show the trend for fetal growth. Expectant mothers might want to take a look at my guides, including the one on ultrasound and this one on first pregnancy: https://www.

47 years old, weight gain of 7.5 lbs in one week without changing eating habits and swelling of ankles have taken pristiq (desvenlafaxine) for 4 years?
Baby was born at 40 weeks weighting 7.9 pounds and 20.5 inches I had her two month appt and she's weighting 9 pounds height 22 inches. I am breastfeeding but I am extremely concerned about her weight gain. Is that normal?
Maybe. Maybe not.: It all depends on whether or not the baby is happy and eating well, with normal poops. The baby's pediatrician can graph the measurements on the growth chart, from the visits after leaving the hospital, at about 2 weeks, at 1 month, and at 2 months. That would be enough measurements to get an idea of the rate of growth. Happy, well-adjusted babies are usually ok... but can weigh again in 2 weeks. ...Read more

Need to know I am a 41 year old female I started my period three weeks ago went thru the normal 5 days then I started spotting. Yesterday I restarted what is like my period I have sore tingaly breast specially the right one, weight gain, headachs, emotion
If: If a patient has spotting and the symptoms described, and there is any possibility of pregnancy, then a pregnancy test should be checked. Sometimes other hormonal fluctuations (from physical stress on the body, weight (too high or too low)) can cause abnormal spotting. Perimenopausal patients get spotting at times though 41 would be considered very young for that. If spotting continued of the patient had other symptoms, then the patient should see their provider for an evaluation, and also to be sure that their pap is up to date. ...Read more

Before giving any medication to your 6 week old baby, I would advise calling your primary care provider. Infants of that age don't clear medications at the same rate than adults or older children. So avoid giving your infant any over the counter medications (like benadryl) until you seek further medical care.
Hives are in general red or pink bumps or welts due to release of histamine. They are usually itchy. They can be caused by an allergic reaction to food, drugs, insect bites or even exercise-induced.
