34 weeks pregnant today. Measuring "low amniotic fluid". Baby is measuring 5 pounds, likelihood of complications of delivered now? Induction? C-sec?

34 weeks pregnant today. Measuring "low amniotic fluid". Baby is measuring 5 pounds, likelihood of complications of delivered now? Induction? C-sec?

Depends: Depends on how low the AFI (amniotic fluid index) is and how compliant you are with NSTs. You should be resting on your left side, getting NSTs and maybe even biophysical profiles. If a smoker, stop immediately. Your fluid may rebound if you follow this plan. At 34 weeks there is about 5% chance of long term newborn complications and the c section risk depends again on how low the fluid is. ...Read more

Don't Give Up!: You should get the advice of 2 specialists: a fertility specialist to check if you have any antibodies, coagulation disorders, hormone problems, fibroids, etc that are complicating your pregnancies. Just in case, you should consider consulting with a geneticist (it would really help if the miscarriages were genetically tested). ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant w/twins, have been on bed rest for 10 wks. The wt of babies last wk was 5.6lbsand 6 lbs. If induced at this stage will babies be ok?

Define OK ??: If your question is primarily that of survival, outlook is good.However, at 36 wks there is a 50% risk of premature lung disease, more for male infants than female.Successful treatment is the usual outcome at this stage, but the longer you can stay pregnant, the better your chances of avoiding neonatal intensive care for the babies. ...Read more

Mom is 5'4 gave birth to a 5.10 pds baby. Mom Gained roughly 22 pds. Is baby in danger to any probs bc of low birth weight? He looks VERY tiny

No: His size is still very normal even if he looks tiny. He will pick up his weight so fast now that he has brought himself into this world. I would probably feed him on a regular 3-4 hour schedule until his weight is over 8 pounds. ...Read more

I've had two pregnancies that ended in which both babies heart just stopped beating one at 23 weeks one at 27 weeks. Im 10wks pregnant now will this repeat?

I've had two pregnancies that ended in which both babies heart just stopped beating one at 23 weeks one at 27 weeks. Im 10wks pregnant now will this repeat?

Not necessarily: You most probably would have an another preterm baby, because the probability with having two prior preterm deliveries is getting higher. But it is not necessarily that the cause of preterm delivery would be the heart issues, unless you have a family history of it, or prior babies had the inherited heart diseases. You have to have a close follow up with your obstetrician anyway for that reason. ...Read more

24 weeks pregnant and haven't gained weight rather i've lost 2kg from my pre pregnancy weight, doctors says the baby is growing at normal rate. normal?

Yes: but make sure you eat correctly and avoid too much weight loss. Through the course of your pregnancy you will increase your weight. Please note that a growing baby needs lots of energy and if he/she does not have enough through the nutrients you give, he/she will resort to using your supplies.. so please eat healthy but enough for both of you. ...Read more

Suffered frm rupture at the fundus at 24 weeks, had to deliver my baby thro c section. What are my future chances for a normal pregnancy. ?

Pregnancy: After ruptured uterus, I am sorry for what happened to yourself, it depends on the site and extent of the rupture, and how it healed, you can still conceive and probably have an uneventful pregnancy, but you need to be under close obstetric supervision all through, with high risk obstetrician, (maternal fetal medicine specialist), and delivery would most probably be elective C. Section, good luck ...Read more
