Increased Fetal Movement 39 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
No: The perception of decreased fetal movement needs investigation. The most common method to evaluate fetal well being is the biophysical profile which is an ultrasould test that evaluates fetal breathing, fine motions, gross motions and amniotic fluid volume. A non-stress test is done which evaluates the babies heartrate pattern. Two points are awarded for each item and 8/10 or 10/10 is reassuring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. US showed gestational sac and fetal pole shown, no heart beat. HCG decreased from 17407 to 10943. Is this a problem?
Yes: I am more concerned with the falling HCG than the lack of Fetal heart at 6 wks. If the dates are wrong, the fetal heart beat may not be visible. This can be checked by repeating the U/S in two weeks. Falling HCG is abnormal at this stage of pregnancy. I recommend you have it rechecked and the U/S repeated. The image is of a 6 wk preg. See how small the fetus is. It is easy to miss a heart beat ...Read more

It is normal: It is normal to have mold spotting during first trimester. Bed rest is recommended for some time. If it is associated with pain or cramping or excess bleeding do not wait to see your obstetrician for comprehensive evaluation . ...Read more
Fetal heartrate measured btwn 132-180 during transvaginal ultrasounds Btwn weeks 6-9. An abdominal scan measured 158 at 9 weeks. Cause for concern?
No.: The normal range of fetal heart tones is 110-160 beats per minute. If sustained >160 it is called fetal sinus tachycardia and merits evaluation with biophysical profile and clinical examination. The most likely explanation is that you caught the baby during a reassuring acceleration from wiggling around in utero. One has to exclude the possibility of non-reassuring fetal heart tones though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably: If your afi is < 5, yes. If it's borderline, between 5-8, it should be strongly considered unless your cervix is unfavorable (difficult to induce d/t being closed, thick, and/or firm). If they wait, you also need a normal non-stress test (nst) or biophysical profile (bpp). If your afi > 8, it's ok to wait. Discuss this with your OB & make sure you understand "kick counts" & when to go to l&d. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
