Why am I feeling baby movements very low as in my pelvic region during 26th week of pregnancy? Anterior lying placenta. First pregnancy.

Baby location: At 26 weeks gestation the very top of the uterus (fundal height) should be about 6 cm above your belly button. That means the baby will be laying pretty low down since you are only in the 2nd trimester. You can have your doctor verify for you at your next visit. ...Read more

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

Signs of preterm labor i'm 24 years old and 27 weeks pregnant. I think i'm having normal aches and pains of pregnancy, but need to make sure. 

Braxton hicks (5-6 a day)
hip pain (constant)
heaviness in abdomen and thighs (off and on for weeks now)
sharp

All : All of the above symptoms you described are common at your stage of pregnancy. However, my rule of thumb for any pregnant patient is to contact your ob/gyn if you have any concerns, even the slightest. You can call your doctor's office 24/7 and there will always be someone on call to take your call. If you have any of the following signs of preterm labor present to OB triage right away: contractions that occur every 10 min. Or more frequently leakage of fluid or blood from your vagina increase in pelvic pressure intense backache cramps( like your period) best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy! ...Read more

I'm 38 weeks pregnant but the fetus head measures at 33weeks and fetus stomach measures 37weeks and 5days as of jan 14 what's does this mean?

I'm 38 weeks pregnant but the fetus head measures at 33weeks and fetus stomach measures 37weeks and 5days as of jan 14 what's does this mean?

Probably normal.: The fetal head measurements are notoriously inaccurate near your due date, as the baby's head is engaged in your pelvis and appears smaller than it actually is. The abdominal circumference is normal, so i would expect normal growth. Relax, follow your obstetrician's advice, keep all your prenatal care appointments and best of luck for a smooth delivery soon! ...Read more

I am 33 weeks pregnant and for the last 3 days, my stomach goes hard as a rock periodically throughout the day. Also less baby movement. Frightening?

Go to the Doctor: Please. Get to your OB today. Do not sit at home and wait. It is too early to have your baby. As much as I am sure you would like this to be over this is too early to be messing around with possible early labor. ...Read more

Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.

Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.

Yes and no: Your fetus's activity pattern will vary hour to hour and day to day - much like anyone's activity. Of course, the absence of fetal movement is very worrisome. A decrease in usual fetal activity day after day can indicate that your baby is having some significant problems. This should be evaluated by your caregiver immediately. In general, if your baby moves more than ten times/hr it is doing well. ...Read more

I am petite 5,3 inches and pregnant with twins and 12th week of my pregnancy and not showing yet are my babies ok? 9 week ultasound showed both baby

I am petite 5,3 inches and pregnant with twins and 12th week of my pregnancy and not showing yet  are my babies ok? 9 week ultasound  showed both baby

It's OK: You are just through the first trimester. Even with twins, they are still very tiny at this point. Perhaps your uterus tips back just a little bit, so you won't show as early. I have no doubts you will start to get big very soon. With a twin pregnancy, they'll be watching you closely and making sure the babies are growing fine. Enjoy another week or two until you start getting big! ...Read more
