I am 37 weeks pregnant, last night and throughout the night i ended up having brown, watery discharge. Stopped now. Should i just ignore?

No.: You are close to term, so this is no time to ignore anything. Having said that, the main concerns would be cramps, pain, contractions, bloody or tissue discharge, not feeling the baby move, etc. My sense is that this is not serious, but you should contact your ob/gyn and not ignore it. ...Read more

Hi: It may be nothing but I would let your Ob know. If your placenta is close to the opening of the uterus this could cause some bleeding. He would know this from one of your ultrasounds. If so this could be of concern. Otherwise if you have a fever and pain you also need to call them. ...Read more

At What Interest???: A little blood is the price you pay now and then--and as the blood ages in there, it'll get darker. As long as it clears-up in a day or two, no prob, but if it persists or increases or causes pain or smells bad then get someone to take a look and make sure the price you paid was at a market rate and not a down-payment on something worse, like a small laceration or an infection.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Reason for checking: I suppose the answer would vary depending on why it was checked. If there were certain symptoms or problems then the tests need to be analyzed in that context. Simply looking at only these numbers with no context they do not appear particularly abnormal for the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. The doctor who ordered them will be in the best position to interpret them. ...Read more
