You'd be amazed...: The majority of 24 week infants now survive, especially if they make it through the first 48 hours of life. That's not to say they may not have significant problems with breathing, feeding, development, vision. You also don't say 24 weeks and how many days . 24 weeks 0 days is worse than 24 weeks 5 days - at that stage of the game, every extra day makes a difference.

Our first daughter was born 8 weeks premature 7 years ago. What are the chances of having another premature birth?
Chances of partial placental previa at 18weeks being dangerous? Chance of fixing itself by ultrasound in 4 weeks?
Depends: At 18 weeks, it's definitely within the realm of possibility that the partial previa will move out of the way. If you had a complete previa then chances quite low, but with a partial, chances are on the higher side. It might not be completely out of the way in 4 weeks, but maybe by 32 weeks. Be sure not to have sex and report any bleeding to doctor or go to the er. Good luck! ...Read more
Had 2 babies in my early 40's. Read that increased risk of breast cancer for 10 years after birth. How much of a risk ? Breastfeed both.
Good ; bad news: Waiting until age 40 to interrupt the menstrual cycle with children does increase the risk of breast cancer for women in general.(bad news) the good news is that having a child decreases that risk for you compared to women who have never had children. Nonetheless, check your breasts monthly for "lumps." so that you can be around for high school graduation ceremonies for both of those children. ...Read more
Twin demise: The effect on the remaining twin depends upon whether they are fraternal or identical twins. With identical twins, the death of one can cause the death of the other and has been associated with mental retardation in the remaining twin.

My friend used meth 1 time at 18 weeks pregnant, very small amount, will it show in babies meconium at birth, if she delivers at full term. in 22 week?
Meconium starts : forming between 12-16 weeks. The Chicago-based lab we used when I worked for the NV State Health Division claimed that their assay could detect illicit drugs in meconium used 6 months prior to delivery. A temporary decrease in oxygen from a "hit" of meth may cause permanent damage in some areas of the fetal brain. Encourage her to 'fess up, for her baby's sake & to get addiction counseling. ...Read more
What are the chances of miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat of 131 at 6 weeks 5 days when the embryo isn't growing properly only at 6 weeks 2 days?
Low: Actually a fetal pole measuring 6 weeks 2 days when you are 6 weeks 5 days pregnant is fine. Babies come in all sizes -plus or minus 5 days measurement (ahead or behind) is fine. Also not everyone has 28 day cycles and if you did not ovulate on day 14 of your cycle, dates may be measuring a little off. Were you told this was abnormal, because I do not think it is, unless i missing facts. ...Read more

Depends On Control: There is no single digit answer you can apply to an individual patient. One brazillian study in 2011 found that 14% of 400 women delivered prematurely, but the rate really depends on how well the mother controls her disease, other issues like preeclampsia, and the reason for delivery (poor control can cause other problems for the mom/baby that could require a cesarean section before 38 weeks). ...Read more
