Increased Fetal Movement 34 Weeks
No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more
Movement fine: It may be an increase in movement, or it may be the baby is getting big to that point where you can really feel every litle thing he/she does. The baby may also be getting into that final position for birth. Too little movement is concerning, but "too much" not a problem. ...Read more

Single intruterine fundal gestational sac is seen with no detectable fetal pole development at 7 weeks 4 days will the baby survive looks like 5weeks?
Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more

34 weeks pregnant today. Measuring "low amniotic fluid". Baby is measuring 5 pounds, likelihood of complications of delivered now? Induction? C-sec?
Depends: Depends on how low the AFI (amniotic fluid index) is and how compliant you are with NSTs. You should be resting on your left side, getting NSTs and maybe even biophysical profiles. If a smoker, stop immediately. Your fluid may rebound if you follow this plan. At 34 weeks there is about 5% chance of long term newborn complications and the c section risk depends again on how low the fluid is. ...Read more
Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.
Yes and no: Your fetus's activity pattern will vary hour to hour and day to day - much like anyone's activity. Of course, the absence of fetal movement is very worrisome. A decrease in usual fetal activity day after day can indicate that your baby is having some significant problems. This should be evaluated by your caregiver immediately. In general, if your baby moves more than ten times/hr it is doing well. ...Read more

What causes a subchorionic hemorrhage? Started at 13 weeks and lost baby at 16 weeks. Passed large clots at 15 weeks & 10 hours before miscarriage
That can be difficul: To say. A placental abruption is what this is called when it happens later in pregnancy, usually due to trauma. Your loss is classified as a miscarriage though it did happen later than usual. The bleeding can be like a chain reaction, blood, cramping then more tearing away. There is a good chance u will be fine with the next pregnancy but review this with your doctor. There may not b a gd answ. ...Read more
