What is the normal heart rate for a fetus at 37 weeks. My daughter's heart rate has usually been 130-140 max. Now its 160-163. ?

Ask your OB please

Heart
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

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

It is probably ok

Thyroid_stimulating_hormone_-_blood_test
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.

That baby is growing fast and taking energy from you. Sleep and rest up for your new baby.

Found out i had chlamydia when i was 37 weeks. Took antibiotic and now i'm 39 weeks. Should it be gone and effects on fetus in case of labor.

Yes and None

Antibiotic
The chlamydia should be gone within a few days of treatment. If you do still have chlamydia it is not likely to affect your labor. Almost all babies are treated after delivery to prevent the most likely problem that chlamydia would cause, an infection in the eyes.

I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. The hospital i went to shows no signs of a fetus. My hcg levels are normal and i have ultrasound pics from my doctor.?

???

Pregnant
Don't know what you mean "hospital shows no signs of a fetus". An ultrasound was done showing an empty uterus? "HCG levels are normal" - what does this mean? HCG is not elevated, i.e., consistent with not being pregnant? If elevated, what's the level? Simply because you have sono pix from your doctor at some point doesn't mean you're still pregnant, but need more information.

Want pics of fetus week by week?

Not possible

Anatomy
Whereas it would be great to be able to see a fetus develop week by week throughout pregnancy, it just isn't feasible. Insurance companies will not pay for the ultrasounds and doctor's offices are primarily focused on the diagnostic aspects of ultrasound. Anticipate a possible dating scan, 18-20 week anatomy/ level 2 scan, then depending on clinical picture a scan in the third trimester.

Dr. Janis D. Fee answered:

Can a 9 week fetus look 7 weeks?

Maybe but not likely

Female_health
You have to understand that the usual way to date is weeks from the menstrual period, which is presumed( but not always )2 weeks from conception. But, if a good ultrasound is done AND the first third of pregnancy, it should be accurate to within 5 days, not 2 weeks off! If within 5 days, they way still go by the menstrual period or probable date of conception... Talk to your OB! Hope this helps.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Do all fetus look the same at 7 weeks?

Yes :-)

Female_health
That's a great, and interesting question. Having performed hundred of ultrasounds at this gestational age, I have to say, they pretty much all look alike. Unfortunately the magnification abilities of most ultrasounds are limited, so even if they looked different I wouldn't necessarily be able to detect. Interesting question though!

Is normal not to see a fetus at 5 weeks ?

Yes

Premature
At early 5 week ultrasound you may only see a gestational sac, nothing more.
