Decreased Fetal Movement 26 Weeks
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
Movement fine: It may be an increase in movement, or it may be the baby is getting big to that point where you can really feel every litle thing he/she does. The baby may also be getting into that final position for birth. Too little movement is concerning, but "too much" not a problem. ...Read more

11 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound showed baby measures perfect, heartbeat and limb movement. What are the chances of miscarriage from here onwards?
Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.
Yes and no: Your fetus's activity pattern will vary hour to hour and day to day - much like anyone's activity. Of course, the absence of fetal movement is very worrisome. A decrease in usual fetal activity day after day can indicate that your baby is having some significant problems. This should be evaluated by your caregiver immediately. In general, if your baby moves more than ten times/hr it is doing well. ...Read more

6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. US showed gestational sac and fetal pole shown, no heart beat. HCG decreased from 17407 to 10943. Is this a problem?
Yes: I am more concerned with the falling HCG than the lack of Fetal heart at 6 wks. If the dates are wrong, the fetal heart beat may not be visible. This can be checked by repeating the U/S in two weeks. Falling HCG is abnormal at this stage of pregnancy. I recommend you have it rechecked and the U/S repeated. The image is of a 6 wk preg. See how small the fetus is. It is easy to miss a heart beat ...Read more

Single intruterine fundal gestational sac is seen with no detectable fetal pole development at 7 weeks 4 days will the baby survive looks like 5weeks?
Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more
Possibly: These are possible pre-cursor symptoms to preterm labor. Preterm labor typically feels like menstrual cramping, or like someone is tightening a belt around your uterus. If you're worried, a cervical length ultrasound or check from doctor can rule this out. Given that the baby is quite pre-term at this point, it never hurts to go to l;d to be evaluated in the event that it is preterm labor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Small pieces of mucus plug lost, diarrhea, increased intensity of contractions (diagnosed w irritable uterus), 35 weeks. early signs of labor?
5 more weeks: it is not uncommon for attraction to begin starting at 32 weeks and they may not be a true sign of labor, rather the might just be practice contractions or whatare called Braxton Hicks contractions. Just because you lose some mucus, does not mean you will go into labor because your cervix will keep on creating mucus. call the hospital though, for regular painful contractions or loss of fluid. ...Read more
No: The perception of decreased fetal movement needs investigation. The most common method to evaluate fetal well being is the biophysical profile which is an ultrasould test that evaluates fetal breathing, fine motions, gross motions and amniotic fluid volume. A non-stress test is done which evaluates the babies heartrate pattern. Two points are awarded for each item and 8/10 or 10/10 is reassuring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
