Universal mystery: Since the advent of time itself, mankind (&womankind alike) have wanted a way to initiate labor "naturally". Your induction will use a drug called Pitocin.

Can going on walks while 35 weeks pregnant cause uterine tetany and deprive the baby of oxygen?

Can going on walks while 35 weeks pregnant cause uterine tetany and deprive the baby of oxygen?

No.: Uterine tetany is usually related to Oxytocin administered to augment labor after labor induction.

There have been ruled out already, I presume. Actually walking will increase blood flow. ...Read more

Separation anxiety: Sounds like separation anxiety which usually escalates around this age in a normal child. You can try finding distractions for her and place her in a safe area (pack and play, crib, playpen) while you go do what you have to do. Most babies who cry but are not hungry or hurt will be ok if you don't rush to console them immediately. If possible, try to get a friend/ family to help give you a break. ...Read more
