Is it not safe to sleep on your back while pregnant? I'm 30 weeks!

Is it not safe to sleep on your back while pregnant? I'm 30 weeks!

Puts pressure: Sleeping on your back drops the weight of your baby right on your aorta, which can lead to decreased blood flow to the lower part of your body, including the uterus. Best is for you to tip even so slightly to the left side, which shifts the weight of the baby off that main blood supply. You can also actually sleep on your side, placing a pillow between your legs to reduce stress on your back. ...Read more

I am 30 weeks pregnant, is modge podge safe to use for my crafts?

Sounds safe...: Some websites say that modge podge is a pva glue (polyvinyl acetate) and say it is similar to elmer's white glue. If true, the glues are non-toxic when used properly. That means they don't have the toxic fumes that some strong glues have. So, one doesn't have to worry about inhaling bad chemicals. Still, it's a good idea to wear disposable gloves when working with glues. ...Read more

Bed rest etc may help slow the process, your OB should aware o ...Read more

I am 30 weeks pregnant & tested positive for gbs 2 weeks ago. -- if I test negative at my 36 week appointment, what does that mean?

No need 4 penicillin: If you were positive at 28 weeks and gbs negative at 36 weeks you would not need any antibiotic prophylaxis in labor. The one exception to this rule is if you had gbs in your urine previously; in this scenario, you need no further gbs screening, because you need intrapartum penicillin anyway. ...Read more
