When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Do multiple pregnancies present higher risks than singleton pregnancies?

Do multiple pregnancies present higher risks than singleton pregnancies?

Absotutely: Every risk in a singleton pregnancy is higher with twins. Risk of miscarriage, genetic abnormalities in a child, and even though small, the risk of one baby not surviving. Risks to mother of hypertension and diabetes are much higher. And the risk of early delivery is much higher. Even though twins generally do well, many twins do not. So it is always medically preferable to have a single pregnancy. ...Read more

Hemorrhage, lower then average hormones, fetus smaller then normal, gestational sac 2 weeks behind fetus. Chances of trisomy or other abnormalities?

Maybe,miscarriage is: More likely. Not knowing how many weeks pregnant you are, it's difficult to give you more specific information. Usually the above consistent with early pregnancy loss. It is best to follow closely with Gyn/OB. Also try to avoid air travel or long car rides, trips in remote areas until this is settled. Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more

A little early: It sounds like your sonogram showed a very early pregnancy. Since no baby was seen there are two possibilities - too early to see or a miscarriage where the baby did not form. The sonogram will needed to be repeated in 1 -2 weeks to find out which is correct. ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more

1. Does gestational diabetic causes c section? And early delivery (before due date)

1. Does gestational diabetic causes c section? And early delivery (before due date)

No and Yes: Having gestational diabetes does not mean that you will have to have a cesarean section. Lots of gestional diabetics deliver vaginally. Important to control your blood sugar because uncontrolled diabetes can lead to large babies which do need a cesarean. All gestational diabetics on medication typically deliver by 39 weeks or undergo induction at 39 weeks. One week prior to one's due date. ...Read more

What is the incidence of mixed delivery (one twin delivered vaginally, one twin delivered via c-section)?

What is the incidence of mixed delivery (one twin delivered vaginally, one twin delivered via c-section)?

About 4% but rising: The most common reasons for c section of a second twin are heart rate problems and the baby coming down in a position other than head first. Many doctors used to be willing to deliver a second twin either butt first or by the feet, but few still have much experience in doing this. There is also a risk of injury to the nerves of the arm or learning disability in any baby that is born breech. ...Read more

What are the main differences between singleton pregnancies and twin pregnancies?

What are the main differences between singleton pregnancies and twin pregnancies?

Twice as many babies: Because the number of babies is doubled, the uterus grows larger faster; this will typically lead to a premature delivery at <37 weeks. There are also increased risks of pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia. Delivery route can also be affected if the first twin is not head down. If the first baby is head down, then a vaginal delivery of both twins can usually be performed. ...Read more

Lam pregnant at 28wk. gestational by twin one is cephalic and 2nd is breech..can delivered normally?

Can't say now: There is time for both to change presentations which may alter delivery plans. There are also a number of potential problems with twin pregnancy that can come up urgently and require change of plans. Only half of twin pregnancies make it past 36 weeks and most of them require C-section delivery. If all things become favorable you might deliver from below, but don't expect it. ...Read more
