A "bruit" or blood flow noise can be heard over narrowed arteries of the kidneys or other pelvic organs in some. It will always match the pattern of your own heartbeat. A fetal heart beat, if audible, will have a separate pattern & generally run much higher than yours. ...Read more

No correct answer: Children with down's syndrome have certain features that are indicative while in utero. Weight is not one of them.

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least. Very nervous?

I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts. C-section is often needed. ...Read more

Wake up when I hear my toddler crying during sleep, should I go to him?

Wake up when I hear my toddler crying during sleep, should I go to him?

It depends.: If your child isn't waking up during these episodes, he may be having night terrors.

If he has a habit of waking and then crying, as long as he has no medical cause for this, it's best to see if he can put himself back to sleep. His doctor can advise. ...Read more
