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

Is it normal for my left side of my head just to go numb for like 10 mins nd feel dizzy i mean im 7 months pregnant nd its the first time happening?

Not really normal: Vague symptoms but I certainly wouldn't call them normal or expected in a pregnant woman. Do you have a history of migraine headaches or something along those lines? Any nausea/vomiting associated with these feelings, light or sound sensitivity? If I were you I'd let the OB/GYN know what's going on and get a neurology consult done just to be crystal clear on your symptoms and what they could mean ...Read more

I am 26 weeks pregnant, I've had high blood pressure this entire time and a few days ago the left side of my face went numb, what is wrong with me?

See your doctor: Isolated facial numbness may not be a serious problem, but high blood pressure during pregnancy can be a sign of a very serious complication. Please see your doctor to get your blood pressure rechecked and to have a urine test for protein (both are indicators of developing pre-eclampsia or toxemia of pregnancy), and a neurological exam to diagnose the cause of the facial numbness. ...Read more

18 weeks pregnant. Sudden extreme weakening & numbness on left side face & arm.  No racing heart or breaths. Symptoms subsided after an hour. Anxiety?

Evaluation: I would discuss these symptoms with your doctor. My concern would be a transient ischemic attack. The mechanism, if it actually occurred, would be a paradoxical embolism from your pelvis. This requires a patent foramen ovale in your heart and be could be detected with echocardiography, which you should have. Migraine equivalent (even without headache) is another possibility. My best wishes to you ...Read more

I am 32 weeks pregnant and lately I been feeling a tingling sensation in some of my fingers when I shower with hot water and some feel numb like a weird sensation, or if I'm resting my head on my arm. Is this normal?

Can be: numbness in hands and fingers very common in pregnancy. As long as you do not develop weakness or clumsiness in your hands, would not be worried. Almost always resolves after pregnancy. Any issues with vision change, increased tingling, increased blood pressure or significant increase in swelling (ALL women have some swelling but a sudden or significant change) you should see doc asap. ...Read more

Take a test: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I am 25, female, the past few days the left side of my face will go numb and tingley for a bit. Why?

Many possibilities: This could be a problem in the nerves of your skin related to some local skin issue, possibly a dental problem, it could be related to a temporomandibular joint disorder, or this could be related to a more central problem such as trigeminal neuralgia-it doesn't sound typical for this. You should see your doctor and have it evaluated. ...Read more
