Will carpel tunnel syndrome harm my baby at 36 weeks? Or can I wait for delivery to get treatment or will symptoms resolve after birth?

Will carpel tunnel syndrome harm my baby at 36 weeks? Or can I wait for delivery to get treatment or will symptoms resolve after birth?

Kenalog (triamcinolone) inj / splint: The treatment will not affect your baby.At 36 weeks pregnancy, you only have another 4 weeks to go ; the carpal tunnel symptoms can be best addressed conservatively by using splints and/or kenalog (triamcinolone) injection.After delivery, the symptoms will usually resolve as the excess water weight decreases.Only a small precentage of women need to have their pregnancy induced carpal tunnel addressed surgically. ...Read more

My baby born at 36 weeks and know he's 10 weeks old. He doesn't smile yet. Is that normal?

My baby born at 36 weeks and know he's 10 weeks old. He doesn't smile yet. Is that normal?

Should be soon: Infants born at 36 weeks and later are often only very slightly delayed (if at all) in their developmental milestones. Giving the benefit of doubt with a corrected age of 6 weeks, your baby should start to smile, laugh, follow gaze to midline and hold the head up at 45 degrees over the next 2-3 weeks. If not, see your pediatrician for assessment. ...Read more

Is this serious? My baby is still breached at 36 weeks?

Is this serious? My baby is still breached at 36 weeks?

Not really...: A breech baby simply means that the baby is bottom down instead of head down. This doesn't affect the baby until its time to deliver. Because delivering the bottom first is more risky to the baby, most Ob/Gyns will recommend a c/section or an attempt to turn the baby around. C/Sections are very safe for you and for the baby. Best wishes! ...Read more

My baby is measuring to big @36 weeks. What are my chances of having a csection? Is it normal for the baby to measure bigger?

Your OB doctor may: Check to make sure you haven't developed gestational diabetes if your fetus is large for gestational age. (s)he may also do a fetal ultrasound to look for "cephalo-pelvic disproportion", (baby's head size too big for your size) ; then discuss the safest delivery option for you ; your baby. ...Read more

My baby weights 2900 grams at 36 weeks of pregnancy. I have GD but controlled by diet.i'm small,158cm, and wonder if vaginal birth is for me or not?

My baby weights 2900 grams at 36 weeks of pregnancy. I have GD but controlled by diet.i'm small,158cm, and wonder if vaginal birth is for me or not?

Probably: Vaginal birth is dependent on many factors in the mother, the baby and the passages ( your pelvis and the power of contractions), generally speaking you would be a candidate for vaginal birth, but your obstetrician would better assess that and during labor many factors contribute, wish you an uneventful pregnancy and labor and a healthy baby ...Read more

The Doc knows best: Trust that the OB caring for you is aware that you are developing a complication of pregnancy. Your baby will be delivered either by inducing you or C-Section if there are signs of either significant fetal distress or if the baby and you will be safer if the baby is delivered pre-term. The gender matters as well. Male babies do better if allowed to get to 36 weeks or later. Ask OB what the plan is ...Read more

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

Extremely: No doctor should consider this based on current guidelines. You should be evaluated for causes of a large infant. Elective delivery should not be performed prior to 39 weeks. Estimated size is not an appropriate indication for early delivery due to the inaccuracy inherent in estimating fetal weight. Size may be considered when deciding the route of delivery. ...Read more

At 35 weeks and 6 days pregnant I have a painful pressure. What complications may occur if my baby were born between 36-37 weeks instead of full term?

At 35 weeks and 6 days pregnant I have a painful pressure. What complications may occur if my baby were born between 36-37 weeks instead of full term?

Probably will be OK: Most babies born between 36-37 weeks will be fine. A small percentage of babies can have problems with breathing room air, maintain their body temperature, remembering to swallow when they suck. They're at greater risk for jaundice which can require special lights to resolve. Just because you're having pressure doesn't mean you'll deliver early. Make sure to eat, drink lots of water and rest. ...Read more

I am 38 .i have triplets pregnancy for 7week.I'm worried this situation. is that possible that three babies carring for 36 weeks.

Yes: Most will end up in labor earlier and deliver by urgent C-section, but some get lucky. I had one mom carry to 37 wks with triplets & all did well. Just make sure you maintain good communication with your delivery team so they can work with you to get as far as possible. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I just listened to my babies heartrste on the packet fetal doppler I have at home and it read 194. Should I be concerned?

Heart beat accelerat: When the baby moves at this point of the pregnancy, the heart rate goes up. This is called an acceleration and is a good thing. It should settle back down soon afterwards to the normal range. If it stays elevated and you are having pain or fever, you should contact your OB right away. ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant w/twins, have been on bed rest for 10 wks. The wt of babies last wk was 5.6lbsand 6 lbs. If induced at this stage will babies be ok?

Define OK ??: If your question is primarily that of survival, outlook is good.However, at 36 wks there is a 50% risk of premature lung disease, more for male infants than female.Successful treatment is the usual outcome at this stage, but the longer you can stay pregnant, the better your chances of avoiding neonatal intensive care for the babies. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and feel vibrations/twitches in my stomach. Is this normal? Do babies have seizures inutero??

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and feel vibrations/twitches in my stomach. Is this normal? Do babies have seizures inutero??

Likely hiccups: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach to the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth. Once the child grows longer & the stomach can drop away from the diaphragm the frequency declines. It bothers mom's more than the baby.Not a seizure! ...Read more
