You are admirable: I genuinely admire your courage and honesty. We all make mistakes and I am very proud of your asking for help and guidance for your baby. Great step forward! your ob/gyn is a great resource to answer this, and will not (hopefully) be judgmental. You also want your doctor to know so they can take great care of you and your baby. Please never hesitate to ask for help. Better days ahead! ...Read more

3rd pregnancy, 27 weeks along and I look and feel as tho the baby's has dropped. Is this possible. Should I be worried?

3rd pregnancy, 27 weeks along and I look and feel as tho the baby's has dropped. Is this possible. Should I be worried?

Normal: Angie, The sensation of the baby dropping is not unusual for a 2nd pregnancy. However, if you note any abdominal tightening/cramping, change in discharge, bleeding/spotting or leakage, please get immediate attention. The main concern would be for preterm labor, but this is unlikely if your first pregnancy progressed to term without problems. Hope that helps, Dr. S. ...Read more

Once diagnosed w/gestational diabetes at 27 weeks, can you reverse it during pregnancy and reverse how fast the baby is growing to normal rate?

Once diagnosed w/gestational diabetes at 27 weeks, can you reverse it during pregnancy and reverse how fast the baby is growing to normal rate?

Diabetes: The diagnosis of gestational diabetes is difficult (even though it should be easy). It is possible, based on a 3 hour glucose test to test positive on monday and, if repeated, test negative on friday. If you consistently run high glucose levels then you need to modify your diet and sometimes be on medication. Diet can often reverse the high sugars but you need to still check glucose levels. ...Read more

At 27 weeks pregnancy i had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

At 27 weeks pregnancy i had a blood test for rhesus c. They found cold antibodies. They say this can do no harm to my baby, but what does it mean for me?

Basically nothing: It may perhaps be a bit trickier finding the best donor blood should you need a transfusion, but there's enough c-negative blood available. Consider autologous donation should you be planning surgery -- always a good idea in any case. Congratulations on your upcoming delivery, and best wishes. ...Read more

Hello im 27 weeks pregnant  and baby movement has slowed down alot in last 2 days . Should i be worried?

Probably not: Your perception of fetal movements as well as their character/quality may change as the pregnancy progresses. Ask your Obs or midwife to instruct you about recording "Fetal Kicks" and when to seek additional screening by ultrasound or FHR monitoring/NST. If you are worried or have had a complicated / "high risk" pregnancy, call your doctor or visit your hospital OB-ER /Obstetrical Eval. Unit ...Read more

32 weeks, second pregnancy, I am feeling baby move very low down and feeling sharp pains with the movements. Is this normal?

32 weeks, second pregnancy, I am feeling baby move very low down and feeling sharp pains with the movements. Is this normal?

Possibly: Pregnancy can cause all these symptoms. However I would suggest a urine test to rule out a simple urinary tract infection. I would recommend calling your OB for a visit or going to the emergency room to check you and your baby before anything else is done! Good luck. ...Read more
