What Is The Reason They Buzzed My Belly When Pregnant Did The Baby Hear It
For stimulation, Yes: Your doctor may want to assess the well being of your baby by performing a fetal non stress test (many reasons). This test should show the baby's heart rate to increase at least 15 beats over the baseline for 15 seconds x2 in 20 minutes. When this does not occur, sound or "buzzing" is done to stimulate (startle) the baby. If the heart rate increases by 15 beats then > 90% the baby should be ok. ...Read more

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
I'm 16 weeks pregnant. I can usually push on my stomach where the baby is and it not hurt. When I laid down tonight it did. It doesn't feel the same.
Painful uterus: Contact your OB about your symptoms as soon as possible. Your uterus should not hurt when it is touched. She will do a pelvic exam to rule out premature labor (cervical dilation or shortening). She will also do a sonogram to see if you have any fibroids which can be painful. She will also measure the amount of amniotic fluid inside of your uterus to determine if you possibly have an infection. ...Read more

My hubby sometimes accidentally hits me in the stomach/uterus not hard but to the point where i get really worried is my baby okay? I'm very worried:(
OB: Would suggest talking to your ob. Even if the fetal movement are ok, they may have to review the pregnancy with an ultrasound. If this 'hitting accidentally' has been multiple times, would suggest getting help from spousal abuse team in social services or mention it to the doctor you see. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Like a full bladder: Your baby is sitting in your uterus which is behind you bladder. It is the beginning of feeling like you have a full bladder all the time. You have ligaments that are starting to get stretched out and you are getting a little crowded in there. Enjoy becoming more aware of all the little (and big) changes coming your way. It is an amazing experience so let your OB know your worries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 13 weeks pregnant and every time we hear the baby's heartbeat it is in the middle of my pelvis behind my heartbeat. What does that mean?
No significance: exactly where your heartbeat is in relation to your baby's heartbeat does not really have much significance and can be completely normal so long as it is in your pelvis. as your pregnancy gets larger, the fetal cardiac motion will become more prominent and easier to detect and distinguish from your own heartbeat. Everything sounds about right here, best of luck. ...Read more
When i lie down and my face is up on the bed, the fibroid in me shows like pregnancy but when am up it normal. My question is why that?
Effect of gravity: When you lie down, gravity pulls at the sides of your abdomen, flattening your stomach. You also relax your abdominal muscles. When you stand up, gravity pulls all of your organs towards your feet, and you tighten up your abdominal muscles, "hiding" your fibroid. Also, it is possible that what you think is your fibroid is really something else (abdominal wall hernia). Show it to your doctor. ...Read more

Not normal: No, this is not a common occurrence and can be very serious, requiring surgery. It can be due to a number of things, more commonly due to spontaneous rupture of surface varicose veins on the uterus or sometimes a uterine artery. Other causes are possible too- did they give you any indication at all where the bleed was coming from or suggest treatment to correct it? ...Read more
My baby is 6mth i just noticed she doesn't flip from her back to her belly anymore she used to do it all the time. Is this normal? Should i worry?
Very normal: She can see less of the world on her belly, so stays on her back to find out what is going on. Soon, it will occur to her that she can creep or crawl from one place to another on her belly, and then she will start to flip that way again. Keep giving her lots of floor time so she can practice the transitions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You may be at risk for depression and this is something i would see your ob/gyn about. It's common to feel overwhelmed when pregnant. Sadness and crying won't hurt baby, but untreated depression could. See a md. ...Read more
My right ovary hurts during sex it is like an aching feeling when my partner is all the way inside it hurts to the point that we have to stop why is this happening should I be concerned?
Need Exam: You need an exam, it may be an ovarian cyst or even endometriosis. Usually if we can reproduce the pain on exam, we can narrow down the possibilities. Laparoscopy is recommended if a diagnosis is difficult to make, a pelvic ultrasound is also very helpful. See your doc or gyn if your pain persists. Take good care of yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
