Yes, babies can be: born with teeth, and some infants do cut their first teeth by 3-4 months, although 6-9 months is more common.

Dating is not exact, so still possible, especially with only a 2 week difference. ...Read more

Is there any lifestyle choices i can do to make my fetus not turn out to be a fussy/irritable infant? He's very active at 27 weeks. Anything i can do to calm and ease him?
No: The only cause and effect evidenced by medical study that causes a fussy/irritable baby is the effect of drugs like cocaine, heroin and caffeine. Even a stressed out mom does not cause a stressed out baby since the physiological effects of maternal stress are transient. The good news; active infants at 27 weeks gestation do not predict actual infant behaviou after birth. Good luck! stay happy. ...Read more
I've had two pregnancies that ended in which both babies heart just stopped beating one at 23 weeks one at 27 weeks. Im 10wks pregnant now will this repeat?
Not necessarily: You most probably would have an another preterm baby, because the probability with having two prior preterm deliveries is getting higher.

You have to have a close follow up with your obstetrician anyway for that reason. ...Read more

How long is an infant protected from the flu shot given to a pregnant woman in the 3rd trimester? I got the 4 virus version.
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

3rd pregnancy, 27 weeks along and I look and feel as tho the baby's has dropped. Is this possible. Should I be worried?
Normal: Angie, The sensation of the baby dropping is not unusual for a 2nd pregnancy.

The main concern would be for preterm labor, but this is unlikely if your first pregnancy progressed to term without problems. Hope that helps, Dr. S. ...Read more
