Be safe. ...Read more

Ive had 3 miscarriages.. I'm currently 8w3d pregnant.. am I at a higher risk to lose this babe too?

Yes: Unfortunately, you are at a higher risk. We test patients with your history for clotting disorders (PAI-1, MTHFR, factor V Leiden, protein c deficiency, protein s deficiency). If a patient tests positive, we treat with blood thinners (heparin or enoxaperin). This has yielded great results in our practice. Also, checking for uterine problems with ultrasound.

Pediatrics only.  Feel rushing fluids and gurgling in 6wk babe.  I hv very fast milk she drinks 90 gulps in 90 seconds and full.Causing peristalsis?

Normal:-) : 6 week olds have very loud gurgly tummies. I call them "volcano belly". This is normal and is not related to the speed of your milk flow, though yours does sound fast. Persistalsis is the term for the normal movement of the intestines. So yes, the milk is causing peristalsis because it is supposed to. If your baby is gaining weight easily, relax mama and enjoy your 90 second speed feedings. ...Read more
