What does it mean if a baby has a PDA?

What does it mean if a baby has a PDA?

Below: The ductus arteriosus (DA) is a normal blood vessel that connects two major arteries — the aorta and the pulmonary artery — that carry blood away from the heart in a developing fetus. The DA diverts blood away from the lungs, sending it directly to the body. The lungs are not used while a fetus is in the amniotic fluid because the baby gets oxygen directly from the mother's placenta. When a newborn breathes and begins to use the lungs, the DA is no longer needed and usually closes during the first 2 days after birth. But when the DA fails to close, a condition called patent (meaning "open") ductus arteriosus (PDA) results, in which oxygen-rich blood from the aorta is allowed to mix with oxygen-poor blood in the pulmonary artery. As a result, too much blood flows into the lungs, which puts a strain on the heart and increases blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. Treatment The three treatment options for PDA are medication, catheter-based procedures, and surgery. ...Read more

What does it mean when the baby drops? I heard that this is a sign that labor has started, but what does it mean?

What does it mean when the baby drops? I heard that this is a sign that labor has started, but what does it mean?

Your : Your fetus’s head tends to hang out in the upper part of the pelvis until the baby gets close to labor, at which point, the fetal head drops into the lower part of the pelvis. The doctor or midwife can feel this on external exam, because the head is no longer wobbling around above the fetal bone but has dropped down below it. It can also be assessed on pelvic exam as “station, ” meaning how far down the baby has dropped. You may also be able to tell if the baby has dropped because your belly may change shape. So what does it mean if the baby drops? Usually it means the baby is getting ready for labor, but the amount of time between when the baby drops and when labor begins varies. If the baby drops prematurely, you may be put on bed rest, but that still doesn’t mean labor is inevitable. However, when the baby drops at full term, in combination with painful contractions that become regular or a broken water bag, the time is coming. Keep in mind that mothers who have given birth many times may go into labor without having the baby drop until the cervix is almost fully dilated. But if the baby drops and it’s your first, it’s a good sign that the time to meet your baby is approaching. ...Read more
