Gestational diabetes acquired later in pregnancy is typically not associated with fetal deformities, but can also cause problems such as a big baby or problems with the amniotic fluid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several mechanisms: Severe high blood pressure can cause the heart to perform less efficiently causing "cardiogenic pulmonary edema" and the release of chemicals which promote inflammation ( cytokines) cause the capillaries ( tiny blood vessels) in the lungs to become leaky causing "non cardiogenic pulmonary edema) both mechanisms can be at work. ...Read more

Bleeding and Cntrxns: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri. Follow w/ US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

High BP, trauma, ROM: Abruptio placentae (formal term) occurs when there is separation of placenta from the wall of the uterus. The diagnosis depends on there being a normally placed placenta (eg, not one covering the cervix). There may or may not be bleeding early. Common causes include high blood pressures, trauma to the abdomen, rapid loss of amniotic fluid (eg, in cases of multiple pregnancy or excess fluid). ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
