35 weeks pregnant.U/S shows cord around baby's neck.OBGYN said baby is fine and doesn't seem too concerned.Could cord strangle the baby before birth?

Ultrasound: First question, why US at 35 weeks? Have there been problems with pregnancy? This is not uncommon and not real risk for child at this point. Not much room in there at this point to move around. At delivery very common to find cord around neck. Usually very easy to deal with. I would not worry. Hope this helps. Good luck with rest of pregnancy (the hard part now at this phase) and the deliver ...Read more

Baby girl born yesterday 6pound and 12 inch head circumference. Is her head fine I was told during pregnancy that she might have microcephaly?

Baby girl born yesterday 6pound and 12 inch head circumference.  Is her head fine I was told during pregnancy that she might have microcephaly?

Head measures small: Her weight is right around the 5th percentile for a newborn but her head is well below the 3rd percentile. The first head measurement after birth is difficult to rely on as there are things like "molding" (shape changes) from passing through the birth canal to consider.This info has to be put into context with the help of your pediatrician. They are there to assist you, don't hesitate to ask quest ...Read more

38weeks pregnant,my baby is in postion head down, but she si looking up,how can i help her to turn her head and look down , cuz i wana a vaginal birth?

Vag. birth is likely: The "head down position" or cephalic/vertex at 38 wks improves your chances of a vaginal birth. "Her looking up or looking down" at this time is not of great importance. Her position when you go into labor, not now, may affect the progress of your labor and your chances of giving birth vaginally. Think positive. The odds are in your favor. ...Read more

Will a pregnant woman or her baby get sick if she does painting during pregnancy?

If you must, use of a mask during painting is suggested. Be sure the room is well ventilated during and after painting, and if possible use low-fume and rapid drying materials. Also, be sure to avoid direct skin contact with the paint as much as possible. ...Read more
