So I have retroverted uterus is that mean ill miscarry 8 weeks pregnant i thought uterus that flipped backward we call tilted so asked abt it before but?

Alignment of uterus: The alignment or tip of your uterus does not put you at increased risk for miscarriage. If that were so, we would warn all women with a backward or retroverted tilt that they were at increased risk. They aren't. It's a normal variant in the human population. You have no reason to worry that a retroverted uterus increases your chances for miscarriage. ...Read more

34w pregnant and having sharpe to dull pains on left side all day. Is this normal or should I call my dr?

Maybe normal: It could be round ligament pain if associated with movement, but it could also be other things like a kidney stone or gas. Even though its the weekend, your OB provider probably has an answering service. I would call the office and discuss your pain. ...Read more

An unknown bug is biting me in my room I need to treat room or call exterminator I am pregnant what can I use or they use?

An unknown bug is biting me in my room I need to treat room or call exterminator I am pregnant what can I use or they use?

Need to identify bug: First that's biting you. If it's a bedbug, it's treated differently than for example, a cockroach. So, if you call an exterminator, they are going to ask you what type of bug is biting you. If it's a spider, that's handled completely differently too. So before you do anything, identify the bug(s). Also, let the exterminator know you are pregnant, so they can use nontoxic, perhaps sticky pads alternative. ...Read more

If i had herpes while pregnant would my doctor call me?

If i had herpes while pregnant would my doctor call me?

Herpes simplex: I would imagine that your doctor would let you know if they felt that you had been tested antibody positive so that there would not be transmission of the virus to your baby during passage through the vagina at time of delivery, but do not know if that is a universal standard of care. If you have had prior genital herpes you should discuss this with your obstetrician. ...Read more
