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

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and feel vibrations/twitches in my stomach. Is this normal? Do babies have seizures inutero??

Likely hiccups: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach to the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth. Once the child grows longer & the stomach can drop away from the diaphragm the frequency declines. It bothers mom's more than the baby.Not a seizure! ...Read more

I hit my belly lightly and i am six months pregnant. did i harm my baby?

Unlikely: Highly unlikely that you harmed your baby with a light "hit" to your belly. Nevertheless, if you have any cramping or bleeding or leaking of fluid; if you are not feeling your baby move, then you need to contact your OB to be seen and evaluated. It would be best to call your OB and discuss with her/him what exactly happened and if you need any type of monitoring. ...Read more

Nutrition/exercise: A good nutrition plan (diabetic diet is good) and aerobic exercise is going to be your best option. Having an 11 month old can certainly tie up your time and energy, but start finding those times and increase to 4 or more times a week to exercise and eat healthy. You should eat a minimum of 5 time a day. I like the 1500 calorie flat belly plan. ...Read more
