I am 27 weeks pregnant. Can I travel in car for 4 hours continuously?

Please don't : I betcha even if you wanted to, you are going to have to stop to pee. Regardless, you want to get out and stretch your legs every 1-1/2 hours or so. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

At 27 weeks pregnancy i had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

At 27 weeks pregnancy i had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

Basically nothing: It may perhaps be a bit trickier finding the best donor blood should you need a transfusion, but there's enough c-negative blood available. Consider autologous donation should you be planning surgery -- always a good idea in any case. Congratulations on your upcoming delivery, and best wishes. ...Read more

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I do not feel the baby move consistently and definitely not 10 times an hour like I've read. Is this cause for concern?

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I do not feel the baby move consistently and definitely not 10 times an hour like I've read. Is this cause for concern?

Fetal kick counts: Fetal movement is one of the only ways to determine fetal well-being in between your prenatal visits. Babies move in cycles. They are not active all the time. If you have never felt 10 movements in an hour, that's less worrisome. We worry more when there is a change in movement, a diminishment. As your baby grows, the movements will become more obvious. I recommend kick counts starting at 28 wks. ...Read more

L&D Now: All of the possibilities need medical attention. Go straight to l&d to rule out preterm labor, make sure your baby is ok and then (if everything is normal) they can figure out what else is going on. Infection, intestestinal or bladder problems, or abruption (placental separation). Please get checked. ...Read more

I am 27 weeks pregnant and i was wondering when about is the normal time for a baby to turn?

It can vary.: Before 36 weeks the baby can change positions quite a bit. After 36 weeks more babies will be found in the head down position but some still change after that time. If your baby isn't head down and you are close to your due date your doctor should discuss this with you. ...Read more

I am 27 weeks pregnant and I've gained a total of nine pounds during my whole pregnancy. Is this bad?

I am 27 weeks pregnant and I've gained a total of nine pounds during my whole pregnancy. Is this bad?

It depends: Recommended weight gain during pregnancy depends on your pre-pregnant weight, more specifically bmi, a measure of weight and body type. If, for instance, your pre-pregnancy bmi is in the normal range, then the recommended weight gain at 27 weeks would be about 15 lbs, but if your bmi is in the very overweight range then a total weight gain for the entire pregnancy might be only 5-10 lbs. ...Read more
