33 wks pregnant irregular painless contractions,positive ffn test, 1 CM dilated, baby well into pelvis, 6th pregnancy,will i give birth early?
Hard to say: The fetal fibrobectin test is much more predictive of the real condition, or the truth, when the test is negative, than when it is positive. A single positive ffn test result is not highly predictive of preterm labor and delivery, and since you are probably not in active labor from irregular contractions, it's hard to answer your question with confidence. See your OB regularly as directed ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi Dr, after almost 6months after premature delivery I feel weaker than I used to before pregnancy. Is it normal?
No: You may be tired from doing your usual chores and looking after a baby. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. ...Read more

Iron, folic acid: Foods that are high in folic acid, iron, and calcium to start are good. NUTS have great minerals. Focus on fruits, vegetables and vary them. I like to say eat your colors of the rainbow. Think broad. Great resources include the CDC and mypyramid.gov for basic food nutrition. Good luck and rest up! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do people in the U.S. need medicine to have a safe pregnancy/delivery when women in other countries can do it without any doctors or medicine at all?
Can be done, but...: 100 years ago, 1 in 4 women in the USA died in Childbirth. Now, the rate is .28 per 1000. This is due mostly to the availability of doctors, blood, antibiotics and c/sections. Its true that women in, say, Sierra Leone, frequently give birth without medicine or doctors but the maternal mortality rate is 40 times higher (11 per 1,000 women). It can (and is) being done but carries some risk. ...Read more

Can the delivery part of the pregnancy be similar from one baby to the next? I had a great one the 1st time i'm scared its going to be bad 2nd time..
Normal worries: I'm sure you hear some horror stories from well meaning friends but take heart.You proved you could get through it once, which means your body can actually do it. Most have a shorter labor with 2nd deliveries. There is never any guarantees that some unexpected thing can show up but as long as you get good prenatal care and behave yourself you have done all you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
