Is there something wrong with my baby? My ob is sending me to mfm.

Not necessarily: In many practices it is customary for the OB doc to follow the pregnancy and the mfm to do the ultrasounds as a routine. The mfm can also be there for the OB if there is a problem so best to ask your OB to sort it out. ...Read more

Is there something wrong with me? My ob is sending me to mfm.

Ask your OB: Many times you're sent to high risk specialist for a higher level ultrasound, to address genetic concerns, or to follow up on a possible abnormality on a previous lab test or ultrasound. Some obs send patients for routine evaluations of advanced maternal age (ama), hypertension, diabetes, or if on chronic medications. Ask your ob, it may be routine for their office. Good luck & enjoy your baby. ...Read more

I'm 35 weeks and 6 days. Baby weights 6.6.Lbsis that mean my baby is big? My ob send me to the hospital to check my bby date and weight don't  add up?

Not necessarily big: This doesn't necessarily mean that your baby is big. In the last trimester, ultrasound readings are just approximate measures and can be off +/- 1 pound. Typically, by 36 weeks, the average baby will weight almost 6 lbs. ...Read more

Is there anything that can cause my ob to send me to the hospital for delivery?

Is there anything that can cause my ob to send me to the hospital for delivery?

Pregnancy delivery: There are any number of things that would have the OB send someone to the hospital for delivery. If their exam showed that the cervix was dilated to a certain stage and the patient is at the due date, if there is leakage of amniotic fluid or a non-stress test shows that the baby's heart tones are concerning. Any of these would have the OB send the patient in to the hospital for delivery. ...Read more

Went to ob doc today told him about arm numb and chest pain sending to cardiologist.  Wants a full work up.  What does that consist of?32 wks preg

Screen & in-depth: Cardiologist will take a thorough history, do an exam, check an EKG, and likely look at an ultrasound of your heart to see how it is functioning. May check blood work. If any of the above concerning, will discuss with you risks/benefits and timing of further evaluation of your heart (but this step uncommon in 20-30s pregnant women). ...Read more

Can preganacy cause numbness in arm and side face also around lips and nose? Had MRI mra CT EEG all normal. Ob and neuro send me to eachother.Worried

Being Pregnant: I would say that yes, this is normal. There is a lot more blood flowing in your arteries and heart and pregnancy is tough on the body. I remember my wife had several occasional odd symptoms like this. If both the neurologist and the OB have found nothing bad in their evaluations of you then breathe, relax and worry a bit less if you can. ...Read more

12weeks UTS,Ob said I have 1 empty sac, it could be VTS. had earlier scan at 8 & 10 weeks -1 sac & 1 baby only. what's the empty sac?

What else did: the OB say? If there was a fetus in the gestational sac at 8 and 10 weeks, and there is no longer a fetus visible in the sac, there is a problem with the pregnancy, assuming they got a good look at the sac. An empty sac may mean loss of the pregnancy. But talk to your doc about it, it doesn't make sense that he/she would just tell you there is an empty sac and leave it at that. Take care. ...Read more
