Intrauterine Growth Restriction Gestational Hypertension
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
MF/placental factors: Maternal-fetal and placental etiologies can all cause fetal growth restriction. Severa fetal syndromes can lead to fgr (e.g. Down, patau, triploidy, edwards, noonan's, digeorge). Multifetal pregnancies are at increased risk for fgr; this can result in fetal demise, fetal brain injury, cerebral palsy or even normal outcomes in non-syndromic cases. Placental infarcts, hypertension, lupus: culprits. ...Read more

Hemorrhage, lower then average hormones, fetus smaller then normal, gestational sac 2 weeks behind fetus. Chances of trisomy or other abnormalities?
Maybe,miscarriage is: More likely. Not knowing how many weeks pregnant you are, it's difficult to give you more specific information. Usually the above consistent with early pregnancy loss. It is best to follow closely with Gyn/OB. Also try to avoid air travel or long car rides, trips in remote areas until this is settled. Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more

6w 4d pregnant with fetal pole, yolk sac ...heartbeat detectd...but seems gestational sac is irregular...sign of miscarriage?
Don't worry: The most important thing is that the fetus has a heartbeat. Did they tell you an actual fetal heart rate? Sometimes the gestational sac looks different. There could be a nearby fibroid or subchorionic hemorrhage. Signs of a miscarriage are uterine cramping and bleeding. If you are not having those symptoms I would not worry about this. The sonogram can be repeated in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

A little different: Gestational hypertension is defined as elevated blood pressure in a pregnant patient after 20 wk who does not have previously diagnosed hypertension. Preeclampsia is the same thing with other changes such as protein leaking into the urine, swelling and some blood test changes. Think of preeclampsia as a more complicated version of gestational hypertension. ...Read more
Needs surveillance: When a woman has high blood pressure in pregnancy, it may cause less blood to flow to the placenta. The fetus receives less of the oxygen and nutrients it needs. This can cause the growth of the fetus to slow down. You may need periodic BP check to make sure you dont have any complications and the baby is growing appropriately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The crl & mean sac diameter measured during 7th wk of pregnancy gives fetal age:age from conception/implantation or the gestational age:age from lmp?
Lmp: All pregnancy dating is based on lmp. So even when lmp is unknown the age given by crl assumes when lmp "should have been. Ie about two weeks prior to implantation. So a pregnancy is 40 weeks from lmp and 38 weeks from implantation. All studies, all research, all dating, dating by ultrasound goes by the 40 week designation or from time of lmp. ...Read more
U/s at possibly 7w5d gestational sac and fetal pole measuring at 6w1d but no yolk sac or heartbeat. Miscarriage or miscalculation?
Dates could be off: I would not expect to see definite fetal heart activity at 6wk 1dy. A repeat ultrasound in one week will resolve the question. If the pregnancy is viable there should be appropriate interval growth and definite fetal heart activity. If not, then there had been an early fetal demise. In cases of blighted ovum a fetal pole does not develop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Gestational diabetes is actually caused by the placenta. A hormone called hpl (human placental lactogen) gets released and causes insulin. While the placenta is the underlying cause, gestational diabetes causes changes in the placenta making it function differently. Most doctors will recommend delivery before the due date with gestational diabetes because of this altered placental function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?
Must use averages: I don't believe that any single measurement is most accurate throughout pregnancy. It is usually the averages that are taken. The most accurate measurements are actually in the first trimester in the way of the crown rump length in terms of predicting the estimated date of delivery. ...Read more
