Ask your OB please: Normal range 120-160-170 your OB can do an ultrasound with a biophyscial profile and a monitor strip called an nst if necessary to make sure everything is ok, what would be more worrisome would be if the ht rate keeps increasing , so call your OB any serious problems at this point in your pregnancy- u would need to be delivered. ...Read more

37 weeks and my fetus had dropped but I still feel so breathless?

37 weeks and my fetus had dropped but I still feel so breathless?

Breathless: At 37 weeks, even with descent of the fetal head into the pelvis, the body of the fetus is still occupying a large part of your abdomen, and restricts the full movement of the diaphragm muscle, preventing full respiration (limiting oxygen from getting into your blood stream. This causes shortness of breath and is very normal at this stage of pregnancy. ...Read more

What should I do? I'm 37 weeks pregnant and unfortunately I still need  to abort the fetus. What should I do? hope you could help my worst problem please

Too late to abort: 37 weeks means this fetus is fully (or almost fully) mature. Any attempt to abort this pregnancy at this point risks major problems for you as well as the death of a baby. You need to arrange for the completion of this pregnancy. If you cannot keep the baby, then you need to arrange for adoption. You need to see your physician (obstetrician) and a social worker for help ...Read more

At 37 weeks pregnant TSH is 5.5 and 3t4 is .77 how does that effect my fetus?

At 37 weeks pregnant TSH is 5.5 and 3t4 is .77 how does that effect my fetus?

It is probably ok: A slightly elevated TSH indicates mild thyroid failure. Early in pregnancy, even that can affect the fetal development, although changes are probably minimal. At the 37th weeks, the fetus has a fully functioning thyroid, so that slight hypothyroidism in the mother is not expect to cause any effect. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks pregnant. Fetal weight is 3.054kgs. Am 5ft and 56 kgs. I had a previous c-section (reason cpd) 7 yrs back. Wat are my chances for vbac?

Not very high.: Go to: https://mfmu.Bsc.Gwu.Edu/publicbsc/mfmu/vgbirthcalc/vagbirth.Html on the basis of the information you provide your chance of successful trial of labor (vbac) would range between 45-62%, depending on your race/ethnicity. I would prefer pre-labor repeat c-section if your chance of vbac is <65%, especially if you are not planning to have any more pregnancies. Talk to your obstetrician! ...Read more

Is it possible for fifth disease to be transferred to a woman's fetus in the 3rd trimester?

Yes: If the mom has her primary experience with this virus at any point in pregnancy, the fetus can become infected. If it happens, the most disabling effect seems to be it's effect on the babies blood forming activity. If it slows it down or stops even briefly, the fetus may not be able to keep up with the metabolic demands of growth & a condition called hydrops can result. ...Read more
