Is it normal to get piles in the 3rd trimester?

Is it normal to get piles in the 3rd trimester?

Common: During the third trimester, women have increased urinary frequency due in part from pressure of the uterus/baby on the bladder. While they are trying to get the last minute tasks accomplished, this is "inconvenient" and many deal with this by cutting back on their fluid intake. Frequent urination is much less inconvenient than constipation and hemorrhoidal flares, drink more fluids! ...Read more

If it has been more than a couple of hours since you felt your baby move, try eating a snack or drinking juice, often this will make babies more active.

I have hydrocephalus and am in my 3rd trimester. Is it possible for the shunt to malfuntion then go back to normal?

I have hydrocephalus and am in my 3rd trimester. Is it possible for the shunt to malfuntion then go back to normal?

May be intermittent: A vp shunt involves tubing that goes from the ventricle to a valve above the ear and then along the neck and chest and into the abdomen. This tubing curls in the abdomen and drains the brain fluid there. Obstruction can occur anywhere along this route. The obstruction may be intermittent. X-rays can look at the tubing, and taping the valve can be sure it is working. Get a thorough checkup. ...Read more

Is it normal for morning sickness to return again in the 3rd trimester. Does this mean you are having a girl?

Is it normal for morning sickness to return again in the 3rd trimester. Does this mean you are having a girl?

Yes and no: Nausea often returns in the third trimester usually because the enlarged uterus causes the stomach to be displaced and sometimes compressed. The speed at which the stomach empties is also decreased in pregnancy resulting in nausea. As for the gender, it does not play a role in these symptoms and can occur with either male or female fetuses. ...Read more

Is measuring a week ahead in the 2nd and 3rd trimester normal? What causes that? Neither me or my fiance are very tall.

Is measuring a week ahead in the 2nd and 3rd trimester normal? What causes that? Neither me or my fiance are very tall.

Normal: This amount of difference in pregnancy measurements is entirely normal. In fact, it doesn't even indicate well the size your baby will be. Even ultrasound scan measurements can easily be off by two weeks on the measurements in later pregnancy. It sounds as if you are perfectly normal. Shorter women often measure a little bigger since they have less room to hide the baby in and thus appear bigger. ...Read more

Im in my 3rd trimester & have been experiencing increased pain in my pelvic & hip bones. My dr says this is normal, but how can I ease the pain?

Im in my 3rd trimester & have been experiencing increased pain in my pelvic & hip bones. My dr says this is normal, but how can I ease the pain?

Pregnagncy belt: This pain is common, caused by the joints being more lax in pregnancy and not easy to relieve. Some patients find wearing a pregnancy belt helps because it stabilizes the pelvic bones. Also stretching, yoga, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice and heat may help. You may wear the belt at night also or prop lots of pillows around and between your legs and hips. Hang in there...Pregnancy only seems like forever! ...Read more

Im in my 3rd trimester & I have notice that when im sleeping on either side my arms go numb, & I have been having some leg cramps. Is it normal?

Staypuff marshmellow: At this stage in pregnancy you are carrying a heavy child, and an enormous amount of circulatory fluid and extra blood so when you sleep on your arm, it too "goes to sleep" from the pressure and temporary obstruction of circulation and nerve compression. Use pillows liberally and change positions often to avoid the problem. ...Read more

Is it safe to take baths in the 3rd trimester?

Is it safe to take baths in the 3rd trimester?

Of course....: Sounds like a great way to relax. I'd take advantage of the opportunity now, as similar escapes with a small child, or a toddler, or a school age child, or a pre-teen, or a teenager will be few and far between, and in each case for different reasons. Enjoy this while you can, then enjoy all the joys of parenting to come. Congratulations and cheers to you.... ...Read more
