I am 20 weeks. My baby bump doesnt seem to be growing and baby movements are VERY sporadic at best. Should I be concerned?
Fetal movements: First detection of fetal movement ranges from 13 to 25 weeks. It may not be felt until 18 to 20 weeks in some first time mothers but might be felt as early as 13 to 16 weeks in some. Some women are just starting to have quickening at 20 weeks. So, I wouldn't be so concerned this early on. Your physician would let you know if there was a problem with growth. Congratulations and stay well. ...Read more
My almost 6 month old did not do the typical 4 month sleep regression. Is that normal too or should I be worried about his development.
Myth?: The "4 month sleep regression" is described as a dramatic change is sleep schedule that is not a part of typical development and is not a "typical" phenomenon at all. I would not be worried about your child's development based on his having a stable sleep pattern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If there is extra fluid around the baby at 31 weeks and the baby is a big baby should I be worried? My doctor told me not to worry but i still am.
Not sure: There is a lot of history we need here... Is this your first? Are you rh negative in blood type? And do you have diabetes? These and other questions may indicate if extra fluid or large baby size is an issue. If the child is just in the upper percentiles and there is generous amniotic fluid but everything else looks ok, it probably is. If there are risk factors, then get a complete explanation. ...Read more

Hard to say: In early weeks, babies can go though a transition pattern called periodic breathing. This is the system figuring out how fast/deep to breathe during the varying states.(sleep/rest/feed/active) It can be fast panting or s;ow deep, there can be a short pause up to 10 sec. By 6 weeks this is usually less noticeable, but occasional pauses can remain. If you think your doc is clueless,get a 2nd opinion ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im almost 38 weeks pregnant is it normal for my baby to have hiccups alot? Or is it something I should be worried about?
Quite common: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach with the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth. Once the child grows longer & the stomach can drop away from the diaphragm the frequency declines. It bothers mom's more than the baby. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
