Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

At 27 weeks pregnancy I had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

At 27 weeks pregnancy I had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

Basically nothing: It may perhaps be a bit trickier finding the best donor blood should you need a transfusion, but there's enough c-negative blood available. Consider autologous donation should you be planning surgery -- always a good idea in any case. Congratulations on your upcoming delivery, and best wishes. ...Read more

I have a cough at night, I was at doctor and I am taking some medicine, but while it will work can cough harm baby? Pregnant 27 weeks

I have a cough at night, I was at doctor and I am taking some medicine, but while it will work can cough harm baby? Pregnant 27 weeks

Possibly reflux: If you are coughing only at night it is possible that you're having reflux. Reflux is very common when you're pregnant with stomach juice coming up from below and into your throat causing the cough. The cough by itself won't hurt your baby but if you're not getting a good night sleep that's a problem. Try sleeping in a semi-sitting position and not eating or drinking anything for three hours before you go to bed. ...Read more

I'm 27 weeks pregnant what's kick count mean??

Checking on baby: Between 18 & 25 weeks of pregnancy, sometimes later, most women will begin to feel the baby moving: kicking, rolling, twisting, turning, etc. Counting how long it takes for her to make 10 movements can be used to monitor the baby and potentially identify any problems early. It should take 2 hours or less. Count at the same time of day, when the baby is active. Make sure he is awake when you start ...Read more

Enjoy.

Iam 27 weeks pregnant and I feel my baby everyday but sometimes more sometimes less. So I want to know what is normal at this stage.

Comletely normal: I am not as active one day to the next. Also, depending on how the baby is positioned one day to next, you may feel them a lot one day, and barely notice the next, especially at your stage. As you get another 6 weeks along, then they are big enough that every move is felt, so enjoy these mild reprieves for now. When at your next OB appointment, talk to him/her about fetal movement counts. ...Read more

I'm 27 weeks and 4 days pregnant, and I'm feeling tired mostly always, I have two smaller children too, but I'm tired most time is it normal?

Yeppers: Total bummer trying to be a mom with 2 little ones and one on the way. When you're pregnant, your blood volume increases, so the serum to red blood cell ratio drops a little. Translation: a functional anemia. You might have sleep apnea as well if you are overweight on top of being pregnant. What is your Mallampati score (look up diagram) & do you snore? Get a sleep study. CPAP may help. ...Read more

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I do not feel the baby move consistently and definitely not 10 times an hour like I've read. Is this cause for concern?

I am 27 weeks pregnant. I do not feel the baby move consistently and definitely not 10 times an hour like I've read. Is this cause for concern?

Fetal kick counts: Fetal movement is one of the only ways to determine fetal well-being in between your prenatal visits. Babies move in cycles. They are not active all the time. If you have never felt 10 movements in an hour, that's less worrisome. We worry more when there is a change in movement, a diminishment. As your baby grows, the movements will become more obvious. I recommend kick counts starting at 28 wks. ...Read more

Hi I'm pregnant with my first child and I'm 27 weeks and I still haven't felt her move. Through the rest of my pregnancy would I still know when I go?

Time to re-check: You should feel fetal movements on a regular basis by this point. I would schedule an office visit where they can perform an ultrasound and assure fetal well being. ...Read more

3rd pregnancy, 27 weeks along and I look and feel as tho the baby's has dropped. Is this possible. Should I be worried?

3rd pregnancy, 27 weeks along and I look and feel as tho the baby's has dropped. Is this possible. Should I be worried?

Normal: Angie,
The sensation of the baby dropping is not unusual for a 2nd pregnancy. However, if you note any abdominal tightening/cramping, change in discharge, bleeding/spotting or leakage, please get immediate attention. The main concern would be for preterm labor, but this is unlikely if your first pregnancy progressed to term without problems.
Hope that helps,
Dr. S. ...Read more

I'm 27 weeks pregnant. Why doesn't my fetus move thatmuch? Is that normal

I'm 27 weeks pregnant. Why doesn't my fetus move thatmuch? Is that normal

Probably OK - but...: At 27 weeks our concern for fetal well-being is low, because most common pregnancy problems do not arise until after 32 weeks. Having said that, please talk to your obstetrician to determine if a fetal biophysical profile and/or growth/fluid assessment is warranted even at 27 weeks, depending on your risk factors. ...Read more
