If i am 14 weeks pregnant will my baby measure at 12 weeks or 14 weeks based on ultrasound.

Same thing, 14 weeks: if your pregnancy is dated correctly from your last menstrual period, and if the ultrasound is also interpreted correctly they will both say 14 weeks. You do not adjust the ultrasound for the 2 "extra" weeks from the last menstrual period. ...Read more

34 weeks & signs of pre term labor @ 31 weeks.  Last week was 3.5cm dilated 25% effaced.  Got steroids at 31 weeks. Belly is rock hard. Concern?

Preterm labor: IF you are 34 weeks and already dilated to 3.5 cm then you are at very high risk for preterm labor. It sounds like your doctor is aware of this since you already got steroids for fetal lung maturity. If you are uncertain as to your plan of care please contact the doctor taking care of you for clarification and instructions on dealing with preterm labor. ...Read more

Bleeding whole pregnancy. At 7w I measured 6w and the gestational sac was small At 8 weeks 6w6d, the sac is 2 weeks behind. Heartbeat 154 Miscarriage?

Bleeding whole pregnancy. At 7w I measured 6w and the gestational sac was small At 8 weeks 6w6d, the sac is 2 weeks behind. Heartbeat 154 Miscarriage?

Not necessarily: The sac is not 2 weeks behind, what you give is 1 week 1 day behind. This is 1 week's growth over 1 week. No one can say online whether your pregnancy is normal or not, but this looks likely normal to me if this was a spontaneous conception. The 154 heart rate is perfect. Stay calm and keep your upcoming visits, good luck. ...Read more

Maybe contractions: could get stronger and closer or sometimes go away if they get stronger and the same frequency or closer together for a few hours then call your OB, if your cervix has changed that means early labor , at 36 weeks as long as you and baby are OK no one is going to encourage your labor ...Read more

21 weeks pregnant cervical length was 39.8 mm 2 weeks ago today it's 36.1 mm is this okay?

Normal values for cx: The cervical length decreases during the course of pregnancy. Both values are well within the normal range for 19 and 21 weeks of prognancy. If the cervical length falls below 25 mm before the end of the 28th week, there is an incresed risk of pre-term delivery and your obstetrician will monitor you more closely. ...Read more

Not really: Each pregnancy is independent event.

Midway: At 12 weeks the top of the uterus is at the level of the pubic bone. At 20 weeks it's at the level of the belly button. At 16 weeks it's in between the pubic bone and the belly button.
