Im 29 weeks pregnant, fetus too small?(2 lbs.) should I be worried? My 1st baby only weigh 5lb.10oz at 36 weeks?

Had a medical abortion at 14 weeks. 3 weeks after , 2 hpt were negative. However, i feel "gassy" in my stomach. Baby kicking? Continuing pregnancy?
1st, why RU gassy?: Feeling gassy may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, pelvic pathology outside the gut, maybe stress. ...Read more

Wouldn't worry: The babies system extracts what it needs from your blood & such activity does not have a significant effect on the circulating oxygen level. If you advance it to the point you hold it until you pass out every hour it might have a little, but even that is likely to have minimal effect if rarely done. ...Read more

Depends on situation: Light housekeeping should never cause any harm to the fetus.

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and feel vibrations/twitches in my stomach. Is this normal? Do babies have seizures inutero??
Likely hiccups: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach to the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth. Once the child grows longer & the stomach can drop away from the diaphragm the frequency declines. It bothers mom's more than the baby.Not a seizure! ...Read more

Hard to be sure: The antibodies built during pregnancy are pushed into baby at a level higher per pound than she retains. That said, all such antibodies begin to age out and become less effective with time. By 3-6 mo there is little if any left. Since there are always a few more flu strains circulating than the ones they can put in the vaccine, it is important to avoid exposure as the primary form of prevention ...Read more
