I always feel my baby moving in my womb & this morning & I didn't feel anything at all. & press down on my tummy to feel the heartbeat &theres nothing?
Lay down and recheck: Lay down for a while and drink fluids, maybe some juice that might perk the baby up. Of you still don't feel movement, call your OB. ...Read more
Motherf Nature: The baby is provided with oxygenated blood from the mother through the umbilical cord. He/she does not need lungs at this stage, only after birth. ...Read more
My wife is 32 weeks pregnant. Reading online that the baby should react to sound in the womb. Our baby has not react/move to sound.?
Did you ask wife?: Most pregnant women do detect fetal movement in general and not always to sound at 32 weeks gestation and if not, it would be a concern to be addressed to her OB MD for additional testing. ...Read more
Likely your own beat: If you hear a rhythmic beating sound over your lower belly, try to see if it always beats at the same rate as your own heart. A "bruit" or blood flow noise can be heard over narrowed arteries of the kidneys or other pelvic organs in some. It will always match the pattern of your own heartbeat. A fetal heart beat, if audible, will have a separate pattern & generally run much higher than yours. ...Read more
No fetal heart beat: Yes. The fetal pole is seen before fetal heart tones. At about 6 weeks the fetal heart tones are seen. Ultrasounds before this time may not see fetal heat tones. ...Read more
I'm 7 weeks pregnant my first ultra sound is this Monday can I possibly hear the babies heart beat? And if not when's the soonest I can hear it??
Heartbeat: The baby's heart starts beating at the 6 week point, and it may be visible on ultrasound somewhere between 6-8 weeks. It can be heard on doppler somewhere between 10-12 weeks. ...Read more
Fetal Heart Beat: At about 5 weeks gestation, your baby's heart begins to beat. Even though you can not hear the fetal heartbeat until week 9 or 10, ultrasound is able to see a beating heart much sooner. An ultrasound can pick up the heartbeat as a 'flicker' in the chest as early as four weeks after conception (6 weeks pregnant from last menstrual period). If it is not seen then fetus may not be alive. ...Read more
I came to a doctor today and she made an ultra sound on me, she said I had a dry fetus in my womb. What does it mean?

Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy.?
Fetal doppler...: ...Can detect any movement of blood in the body, but with a false pregnancy, all the doppler rhythms should be at the same rate as the woman's heartbeat. Fetal heartbeat tends to be much faster so if you find that, the pregnancy is probably real. ...Read more
Do ob or gyn do doppler ultrasound or ultrasound scan when a pregnant womb visit their clinic. I want to know as worried of no heart beat after six wk?
Either: Most can do either. If heart motion visualized on "regular" ultrasound, then not an issue. If heard with fetal-doppler, then can count rate. Tell your OB about your concerns. ...Read more
No: They tend to grow at a pretty normal rate prior to birth. Deficiencies in linear growth will eventually occcur in the average ds kid as they grow older. However, some maintain a relatively normal rate of growth, dependingg on other factors affecting their health. ...Read more
Takes $$/effort: If the woman's ovaries remain, these can be stimulated to make eggs. At the appropriate time these can be removed and placed in storage. The fathers sperm are added to create embryos which can then be placed in a a surrogate woman who carries the pregnancy.This requires a fertility center with the technical skill and local /national laws that permit the procedure. It is not always successful. ...Read more
From inside?: We know the basic structures are formed by 12 weeks, but are not sure when they can actually process the sounds like you do to consider it hearing. We know they respond with behavior changes when music is played and sent through the tummy. Babies also will recognize moms voice soon after birth. Since they don't remember back that far we can only speculate. ...Read more
No correct answer: Children with down's syndrome have certain features that are indicative while in utero. Weight is not one of them. In utero weight is dependent on so many factors including maternal factors that fetal weight cannot be used with any accuracy. In my experience, children with Down syndrome often weigh similar to their siblings in utero. ...Read more
Not specifically: Ds infants can have any of the sporadic issues that affect non ds infants, like esophageal atresia, where the swallowing tube is not hooked up, or urinary tract defects, both of which can lead to poor amniotic fluid production. ...Read more
Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least. Very nervous?
Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around. The hiccups are unrelated. I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts. C-section is often needed. ...Read more
Is it normal for babies to hiccup a lot in the womb? My baby does it a lot I'm 33 weeks and all my prenatal stuff was ok and his heart rate was 140s
Yes that can happen: And hopefully the cnadian system will allow u to have another us 34-36 weeks that is an important one cause it gives an est fetal wt, checks the fluid and position of the baby, all of my obs always get one at that time. ...Read more
How long does marijuana stay in a babies system that is still in the womb in the poop pee and blood?

Thc is stored in placenta and other fat. ...Read more
13 weeks preg, using at home Doppler, heartbeat sounds normal at one spot but then sounds like it’s thudding hard, something wrong with the baby?
I hear this ringing sound for like two seconds almost every month in my lifted ear only could it be my unborn child's heartbeat I'm hearing I need phe?
Tinnitus: 2 seconds every month seems like a rare event to me. It's unlikely that ringing sound is fetal heartbeat. If worried, time rate of ringing sound. Fetal heart rate is 120-160 beats per minute or 2-3 beats per second. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/tinnitus/basics/definition/con-20021487 for more info. ...Read more
I went in for a 6 week ultra sound expecting to see my baby s heartbeat until this ultrasound we had only seen one sac that sac now showed a beautiful beating heart t 105 I was measuring 6 weeks 4 days however the tech also found another sac considerably
Early pregnancy: At 6 weeks pregnant ultrasound is still very limited. We should see a gestational sac and hopefully a fetal pole. This is right on the cusp of when we can see a heart beat. So, a heart beat of 105 is still reassuring. In the next few weeks, baby grows a lot! The next ultrasound (even at 8 weeks) will be even a better and a nice fast heart beat (120 - 180) if all is progressing normally. ...Read more
6 weeks: 98-99% of normal pregnancies will reliably have heartbeat detected at 6 weeks EGA (meaning form the last period, not from conception) with vaginal ultrasound. A small number of normal pregnancies can register a heartbeat in the 5th week, but it's not common. Good wishes. ...Read more

Really dizzy & this weird sound in my right ear. It's feels like I am hearing heart beat but it's a muffle. Like when you listen to a baby's heart beat?
Vertigo: Sounds like you have developed vertigo, and I think likely from fluid on your ear. This explains why you are hearing your heart beat and the fluid will cause a pressure change that can refer to your balance gland. Get checked! ...Read more
