What are my chances of a successful pregnancy with hba1c of 72?

What are my chances of a successful pregnancy with hba1c of 72?

Your diabetes will have to be managed carefully during your pregnancy, and your doctors will likely try to get your a1c even lower--e.g. Mid-6 range. ...Read more

What are the chances my child will be born with chromosomal abnormalities? I was told my unborn child has echogenic bowels, that i tested higher for the risk of Down syndrome and as a carrier of the cystic fibrosis trait

What are the chances my child will be born with chromosomal abnormalities? I was told my unborn child has echogenic bowels, that i tested higher for the risk of Down syndrome and as a carrier of the cystic fibrosis trait

There : There are several ultrasound findings that can suggest down sysndrome, and echogenic bowel is one of them. There could be other explanations for that finding, though. It sound like you will need some testing to find out what's going on. The two tests used most commonly are amniocentesis and chorionic villous sampling. Each has its own risks and benefits, so you should discuss them with your obstetrician. I would suggest that you do this sooner than later, and regardless of whether the outcome might lead you to terminate the pregnancy. ...Read more
