Maybe


We don't know how much alcohol it takes to affect your unborn baby. Because of this the recommendation is no alcohol while you are pregnant. But cheer up; an occasional glass of red wine can be beneficial if you are breastfeeding!

Yes


First you need to confirm the gestational age to rule out wrong dates. If the gestational age is correct but the baby weight is less than the gestational age then we call it is intra uterine growth retardation. There are so many causes. If the cause is treatable that is fine. If not then it is a problem. Consult your OB physician.

Before having a baby, see your dentist. Dental infections are more difficult to treat when pregnant.

You used a lot of question marks without actually asking a question. You should be able to feel it when the baby's head drops into position. This can occur as early as 32-34 weeks but it does not necessarily mean you will deliver early. It usually engages at 37-38 weeks.

Busy babies


This is a common finding and felt to represent fetal activity as early as 12 weeks. (more room for somersaults) I have had a patients with as many as 5 wraps do well, but needed a c-section delivery.I would not expect baby to unwind (less room now), and many are delivered below with only 1 wrap.Have a well monitored labor and be ready if a c-section is recommended early in the process.

Hi,


Hi, I think it is very important to ask your obstetrician what she or he is referring to. On the one hand, it could be that your fetus’ head is small enough that it might allow the delivery to go more easily. Regarding head size, find out if the doctor is referring to a circumference that is on the low end of normal. Also, be aware that the measurements taken in utero may not be exactly the same as when the baby is measured at birth. There is a genetic component regarding head circumference. In other words, a number of members of a family may have a small head and are completely healthy with normal intelligence. This is called benign familial microcephalus. Before you start worrying about whether this is a defect, please sit down and talk to the doctor and ask for an explanation. Ask your doctor is there is a concern regarding your baby's head or if she or he is simply notifying you that the baby's head may be small.
