Pregnancy (Definition)

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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I have a thinned out uterus and 9 weeks pregnant. What do I need to avoid.?

Thinned Uterus: It sounds like your uterus is not tolerant of stretching to full term as it is. And if your doctor has been able to see first-hand that your uterus is thinned out, you have a distinct advantage in knowing the possibility of rupture does exist. Many women do not have this warning and have lost, not only their babies, but their lives. You need to be followed very closely by you doctor.

I feel pressure in the middle and sides of my back 9 weeks pregnant no ectopic thing but I have retroverted uterus pain started yesterday am I miscarryi?

I feel pressure in the middle and sides of my back 9 weeks pregnant no ectopic thing but I have retroverted uterus pain started yesterday am I miscarryi?

Not likely: Those are not really signs of a miscarriage. This early the only way to know if everything is ok is to be seen by your doctor. A retroverted uterus should not have anything to do with things at this point. Many pregnant women complain of pressure and discomfort.

Hi! I am 32 years old & 9 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby. (3 were c-section). 1st visit to gyno revealed a 2cm cyst in uterus. Is it very serious?

Hi! I am 32 years old & 9 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby. (3 were c-section). 1st visit to gyno revealed a 2cm cyst in uterus. Is it very serious?

No: Let your track record speak for itself! If you've had 3 healthy pregnancies in the past, statistically for your young age group you should be fine. You need to follow up with your doctor regularly to make sure the "cyst" doesn't enlarge. As long as you feel fine, good weight gain and baby is growing well, don't go looking for a pandora's box to open. When diagnosis becomes clear, your OB will help.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and have had vaginal bleeding due to a blood clot near uterus. Can being sexually aroused hurt my baby or cause me to bleed.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and have had vaginal bleeding due to a blood clot near uterus. Can being sexually aroused hurt my baby or cause me to bleed.

No, see OB.: Sexual arousal or even having sex will not harm the baby. Sex may cause complications in case the placenta is low in the uterus. Occasional mild bleeding in pregnancy is not uncommon. If is persists, you should consult your OB. I trust that for the sake of your and your baby's health you are seeing an OB.

I am 9 weeks pregnant, my ultrasound reveals retroverted uterus, no embryonic development. My doctor said it's blighted ovum. Is it 100% accurate?

I am 9 weeks pregnant, my ultrasound reveals retroverted uterus, no embryonic development. My doctor said it's blighted ovum. Is it 100% accurate?

Likely correct: If the ultrasound was performed with the endovaginal probe, a viable pregnancy would easily be confirmed. The absence of embryonic development is either from blighted ovum or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy.

Spotting: Spotting can be a sign of pregnancy, so you might want to take a home pregnancy test. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck!

I am between 5- 6 weeks pregnant. Had u/s no baby. Hgc 2400. Said my uterus is not thick. Is this normal?

I am between 5- 6 weeks pregnant. Had u/s no baby. Hgc 2400. Said my uterus is not thick. Is this normal?

Not normal: If the HCG is 2400 and they don't see anything in your uterus you need to see your doctor. It's possible you are having a miscarriage. It's also possible you have an ectopic pregnancy. That's when the pregnancy is not in the uterus where it is supposed to be. Your doc will do blood tests and help figure out what is going on. If you have bad pain or cramping go to the hospital.

I had my stillborn on 9/6/14 and I am 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I delivered at 32 weeks due to plencta pulling away from the uterus. Chances now?

I'm so sorry: I'm so very sorry that happened to you. That must have been devastating emotionally to go through. Placental abruption is rare, but can occur again. I would have an extensive conversation with your ob/gyn about why you might have had the abruption in the first place (high blood pressure? medications? Car accident? Clotting disorder). If there is anything that can be prevented, you'd want to kno

My wife is in 9 months of pregnancy her uterus has not opened for delivery, is it normal?

My wife is in 9 months of pregnancy her uterus has not opened for delivery, is it normal?

Yes: When it is time for the baby to come the cervix will soften and open and thin for the birth. Relax and enjoy the time before the baby.

See specialist: Consider seeing an MFM (maternal fetal medicine) specialist. They can take more detailed look via ultrasound and make recommendations if they think you are at risk for preterm labor. After delivery and postpartum period, consider a hysterosalpingogram (x-ray study of uterus and tubes) or MRI. Your reproductive specialist can schedule these. Ask your OB to get records from your infertility dr.

Possible pregnancy if the result is from 0.78cm Triple Line Endometrium to 0.9-0.95cm Hyper-echoic Endometrium? Uterus:Anteverted 3.6x3.1x3cm

Possible pregnancy if the result is from 0.78cm Triple Line Endometrium to 0.9-0.95cm Hyper-echoic Endometrium? Uterus:Anteverted 3.6x3.1x3cm

Maybe: The thickness of the endometrium does not tell you if you are pregnant or not. You can only diagnose pregnancy by ultrasound if you see a gestational sac with a pregnancy inside. Very early in pregnancy ultrasound won't see the pregnancy. Its better to do a pregnancy test (urine or blood) if you want to know if you are pregnant. Best wishes!
