D/w your doctor: Follow up with your doctor/ob- you need to have your iron and folate (folic acid) level checked and if they are low- definitely need to get replacement. Your thyroid medication dose may also need to be adjusted down slightly. Also, you need to take prenatal multivitamin one a day. I don't know what is inside the macal vip- but I assume it is vit c mainly. Discuss further with your ob. ...Read more

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

At 28 weeks pregnant why is fetal heart rate 88 BPM why could this be...?

At 28 weeks pregnant why is fetal heart rate 88 BPM why could this be...?

Your heart rate: How was this heart rate taken? 88 is too low to be a normal fetal heart rate, the range is roughly 120's -150's. If the reading was with a doppler or stethoscope, it is likely that they picked up your heart rate and not your baby's. Give your OB a call for clarification. ...Read more

If I took indoethacin in my last weeks of pregnancy, should the fetal heart rate be monitored on a daily basis?

If I took indoethacin in my last weeks of pregnancy, should the fetal heart rate be monitored on a daily basis?

Depends: Indomethacin taken frequently over a long period of time can cause a transient change in the fetal heart circulation (in doctor speak it closes the ductus arteriosus). Small doses for only a few days, which is usually the only thing we would do, is not particularly dangerous. Check with your doctor on why you are taking it and whether monitoring is needed. ...Read more

What is the percentage of having a successful VBAC after 1 c-sec no complications with 1st pregnancy. C-sec due to non reassuring fetal heart rate?

What is the percentage of having a successful VBAC after 1 c-sec no complications with 1st pregnancy. C-sec due to non reassuring fetal heart rate?

Almost: The same as before. Since the first cs was for heart tones and not failure to progress, you should have a 80 +\- percent chance of having a successful vaginal delivery. Find an OB who has a low CS rate. Not total CS but For a woman's first CS. My primary rate is 14 percent. That means for a woman with no prior CS, she has an 86 percent chance of a vag delivery. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm 5 weeks, 3 days pregnant and an ultrasound showed a fetal heart rate of 104, which the technician said was low. Should I be concerned? Thank you.

I'm 5 weeks, 3 days pregnant and an ultrasound showed a fetal heart rate of 104, which the technician said was low. Should I be concerned? Thank you.

Fetal heart: The normal fetal heart rate is considered 120-160, but lower rates above 100 can be normal. A very low heart rate on an ultrasound at 5-6 weeks is worrisome for an impending miscarriage. There is nothing you or your doctor can do about this. The best thing for you to do would be to get weekly ultrasounds for the next 3-4 weeks to make sure the pregnancy is progressing normally. ...Read more

I'm 7 weeks pregnant. What causes fetal heart rate to drop from 122 BPM to 81 BPM in two days after pregnancy looked great?

I'm 7 weeks pregnant. What causes fetal heart rate to drop from 122 BPM to 81 BPM in two days after pregnancy looked great?

Hard to say: This question is difficult to answer, because we aren't typically measuring the fetal heartbeat over extended periods of time at this gestational age. Possible technical error. There's not much to do ---> continue to watch the pregnancy. It's normal for fetuses to have cyclic drops in their heartbeat. You may want to consider closer following and possibly an echocardiogram later in pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and so far I've only seen my normal family doctor. He check fetal heart rate but that's it, should I be seeing anyone else?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and so far I've only seen my normal family doctor. He check fetal heart rate but that's it, should I be seeing anyone else?

I suggest "yes": Unless your family doctor has an active obstetrical practice - delivers babies and sees patents for prenatal care - you need to start seeing an OBGyn or provider who doe these things. In some communities family docs do obstetrics, but unless yours is one of them, you now need an OB doctor, not just a "doctor." Good wishes. ...Read more

7 weeks pregnant spotting for 5 days had ultrasound on day 3 of spotting, fetal heart rate 154, could this still be a sign of miscarriage?

7 weeks pregnant spotting for 5 days had ultrasound on day 3 of spotting, fetal heart rate 154, could this still be a sign of miscarriage?

Possible: While noting a viable (presence of fetal heart beat) intrauterine pregnancy is reassuring, a subsequent miscarriage is still possible. Risk of miscarriage depends on women's age, increasing with advancing maternal age. Important to note that bleeding during pregnancy is not uncommon. However, best to notify your ob-gyn if heavy bleeding and/or significant pelvic pain. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: abnormal fetal heart rate?

What is the definition or description of: abnormal fetal heart rate?

<110, or >160 bpm.: After the first trimester, the fetal heart rate should fluctuate between 110-160 beats per minute. Arrhythmias (skipped beats, tachy-/brady-arrhythmias) account for most pre-labor abnormal heart rates. Intrapartum fetal heart rate depends on fetal oxygenation and placental perfusion and is used to prevent death of brain injury during labor. Decelerations may be early, variable or late. ...Read more
