My babies heart rate was 170 beats/min in 8 weeks 6 days, 166 in 13 weeks 1 day, 137 in 25 weeks. By this can I able to know the gender of the baby?

No: Heart rate isn't indicative of baby's gender, careful ultrasound exam or even more invasive procedures like CVS would tell, I can appreciate social implications, better wait though or resort to ultrasound, wish you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy infant of any gender ...Read more

What causes a baby to be born at 25 weeks?

What causes a baby to be born at 25 weeks?

Sometimes necessary: In rare cases, the expectant woman is very ill from preeclampsia, maternal condition, etc or is in unstoppable labor or at risk from infection or bleeding, so needs delivery to preserve the health of her and often also the baby. In other cases, the condition of the fetus is deteriorating so delivery is carried out to prevent further harm or death. This is a very difficult decision by expert team. ...Read more

Born 3mths. Premature. I had kidney issues up until age 6. I was on kidney meds but grew out of it. I'm 26&want babies. What's my chance of Preeclampsia?

Born 3mths. Premature. I had kidney issues up until age 6. I was on kidney meds but grew out of it. I'm 26&want babies. What's my chance of Preeclampsia?

Depends: If your kidney function is totally normal (tests can be done to check this) and you have no blood pressure issues at all, then the chance of getting preeclampsia should be about the same as that of the general population, which is approximately 15%. See your doctor to have kidney function and blood pressure assessed before you start trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

I'm 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

I'm 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

5'4 and 115 pds, thin frame size 2, just found out I'm having twins. Will I have a problem carrying babies to term? Chances of babies born small?

5'4 and 115 pds, thin frame size 2, just found out I'm having twins. Will I have a problem carrying babies to term? Chances of babies born small?

Maternal age: It is really important to choose an Obgyn and begin your prenatal care. All twin pregnancies are high risk. Your age of 39 also makes the pregnancy high risk. Your small stature is not likely to be an issue increasing risk but of course each case needs to be managed individually ...Read more

I had an ultrasound today at 8 weeks 3 days pregnant, the babies heart rate was 172 bpm is this normal? And a good sign of survival?

I had an ultrasound today at 8 weeks 3 days pregnant, the babies heart rate was 172 bpm is this normal? And a good sign of survival?

Normal HR: Normal heart rate at around 8 weeks. A normal HR at 8 weeks is a good sign but is not a good predictor of long term issues/survival. Take good care of yourself and work with your OB/GYN closely over the coming months and ask lots of questions. A new baby is an both an exciting and scary time. Good luck. ...Read more

Survival possibility of b positive father and o negative mother babies?

Survival possibility of b positive father and o negative mother babies?

Seldom a problem: With regular prenatal care this combination is seldom a problem. The bigger threat is unrecognized rh sensitization/ reaction in baby & preventive care using Rhogam during and after pregnancy if needed has dropped the frequency of rh disease significantly. B to o issues occasionally cause a moderate jaundice problem that needs monitoring but I've never seen one produce a major problem. ...Read more

I'm 25 weeks and 4 days pregnant my baby weighs 1.2 kgs does this mean she'll just be a big baby or is this a health risk?

Needs monitoring: Larger than average babies are a concern although they may be perfectly normal. Don't jump to conclusions at this early stage because estimating weight can be very imprecise, but it is something to recheck as you get farther along. ...Read more

25 weeks how much of a reduced movement from baby should I be worried about I still feel him move here and there but not as much should I be worried?

25 weeks how much of a reduced movement from baby should I be worried about I still feel him move here and there but not as much should I be worried?

Not necessarily: Fetal movement changes as the baby gets bigger and has less room to move. Counting kicks is one of the ways to assess fetal well being. To do this, pick a time of day preferably after a meal and lie down on your side and count the number of times the baby moves in 30 minutes. If it is decreased, eat or drink something cold and sweet and count for another 30 minutes. If it remains alot less call MD ...Read more
