Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Reason for checking: I suppose the answer would vary depending on why it was checked. If there were certain symptoms or problems then the tests need to be analyzed in that context.

I am 37 weeks pregnant. I took a home drug test for THC and test positive. What does the state of mo do if I give birth and my baby and I are positive?

I am 37 weeks pregnant. I took a home drug test for THC and test positive. What does the state of mo do if I give birth and my baby and I are positive?

Sure is!: You are carrying and feeding a rapidly growing human being inside you! In addition, moms usuually become somewhat anemic during the latter stages of pregnancy, so this leads to easier fatigue as well.
