Immediate evaluation: You need immediate evaluation to see if the baby is still alive and if you are starting preterm labor. If the baby is alive, and you are starting contractions, medication can be given to stop the contractions. Further, you need to get out of the situation where you and your baby are being abused. You need to put that baby first right now and get out of that situation. Tell doc your circumstances! ...Read more

22 weeks pregnant baby moved very low and not moving much should I be worried?

22 weeks pregnant baby moved very low and not moving much should I be worried?

Well?: Not really. This is just the time you start to feel movement so it can easily be percieved to be decreased. Secondly, god forbid, there is a problem the baby is non viable (could not survive). Don't panic, the incidence of fetal death at 22 weeks is low and the percieved lack of fetal movement is high at this gestational age. Low fetal movement later in pregnancy is more worrisome. Hope it hlps. ...Read more

Night owl: This one's a night owl. No worries. Never go a whole 24-hours without feeling the baby move. Additionally, trust your maternal instinct. If you feel something is not right; best to get it checked out. Sounds to me like all is well though. ...Read more

Is 1.5cm dilation at 22 weeks pregnancy is Cervical incompetency? Usually heard that cervical dilation at 20-50mm is incompetent. What is true?

Controversial topic: Premature cervical changes (dilatation, shortening, funneling, softening...) are difficult to measure and to interpret. Sonographic or clinical exams of your cervix are very variable, very subjective, not accurate nor reliable predictors of premature labor or preterm delivery. Consult a knowledgeable MFM doctor regarding accepted criteria for "cervical insufficiency". Your risks at 22wks. Seem small. ...Read more

Will taking 1 hit of meth at 18 weeks pregnant show up in babies meconium at birth in 22 weeks? Never used again? She will be tested, along with baby.

Meconium: Think. Where will it all go, or `accumulate? But In Meconium which begins to form, I believe around 12 th or 16th wk. Drugs can be detected in Meconium by second trimester. If you stay clean and your UDS continues to be negative, they may not test Meconium.
But are you asking this question for yourself or for your Baby, that little helpless, precious being expecting all protection from Mama. ...Read more

I'm 34weweeks pregnant and my baby is measuring at 31weeks had a ultrasound today and my baby is moving but his diaphragm isn't moving up and down?

Baby needs: Congratulations, not much longer. You will not see your baby's diaphragm move during an ultrasound because the baby does not actively breathe at this stage.
