Ultrasound: First question, why US at 35 weeks? Have there been problems with pregnancy? This is not uncommon and not real risk for child at this point. Not much room in there at this point to move around. At delivery very common to find cord around neck. Usually very easy to deal with. I would not worry. Hope this helps. Good luck with rest of pregnancy (the hard part now at this phase) and the deliver Read more

Giving birth @35 weeks is it safe?

Giving birth @35 weeks is it safe?

Not really: All this depends on why you are delivering at that time. If you have nothing better to do and your pregnancy is normal, delivering then puts your baby at risk of breathing issues and increased risks, such as nicu care, infections, cerebral palsy, etc. But most babies at 35 weeks do fine eventually, so if there is a medical reason (high bp, broken water bag, etc) to deliver, it is safe enough.

What's the cause of brown discharge at 35 weeks pregnant?

What's the cause of brown discharge at 35 weeks pregnant?

Mucus plug?: Hard to know. I wonder if this might be the mucus plug or "bloody show" which occurs before labor starts. Since brown discharge may be blood, ask your doctor about this, particularly since you are still early. I trust you are not having contractions or other abdominal pain. And I trust that you are feeling plenty of baby movement. Check with your doctor to be sure about this. Lgromkomd. Read more

Therefore, the shortest duration of treatment is advised--especially around the timing of delivery. Babies who are exposed to narcotics right before delivery can have (treatable) sleepiness and slow breathing. Read more
