What is the standard blood sugar level for a pregnancy of 5 months. Specially for dinner and lunch and with how much time difference.

What is the standard blood sugar level for a pregnancy of 5 months. Specially for dinner and lunch and with how much time difference.

90-130: The "usual" blood sugars in pregnancy are the same as in non-pregnant people, but pregnancy increases the risk of diabetes. If this occurs, it is called gestational diabetes. In pregnant women with diabetes we generally aim for pre-meal numbers in the range of 90-130 if we can get there without risking low blood sugars. If the woman is not on insulin, it's fine to be lower. About 6 hours btween ...Read more

Most stay unchanged: How large is your ovarian cyst? Most resolve after 13th week , but if you still have it at 20 weeks it should be checked regularly for growth.

If you develop symptoms of pain due to the cyst or if the cyst significantly grows then you might need surgery to remove it. Most surgery is done prior to 20 weeks. ...Read more

Can be: but with your history you need to be followed with ultrasound. Have you had one yet? 5 weeks is usually early, but it's not too early to begin ruling out ectopic (assuming that hasn't been done already.) Good luck. ...Read more

Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.

Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.

Depends: Whether you can keep your wonderful news secret will depend on how you carry the baby. For some, "flowy" tops are all that is needed to look the same for months, while others seem to grow straight out and show at 3 months. I suggest simply not offering the news, and if anyone is bold enough to ask, answer with something vague like, "why, do I LOOK it?" Good luck!! ...Read more

Arnica is considered homeopathic therapy, and there is not much (if any?) reliable scientific data; and without good data, physicians can't safely recommend its use in pregnancy.

Pain killers and meth and pregnancy.. My friend stopped at 5 months pregnant is that still going to cause problems?

Yes, most likely.: Meth, is a drug that is toxic to the heart, kidneys, brain, and spinal cord. And the baby is developing these. Infants born can have low tolerance for touch, light, noise. And they can have learning, and behavioral problems that can last long term... ...Read more
