I was told I have placental resistance. Is this the same as placental insufficiency? I am a nurse on a medical surgical floor, should I be on bedrest?

I was told I have placental resistance. Is this the same as placental insufficiency? I am a nurse on a medical surgical floor, should I be on bedrest?

Bedrest not helpful: On US, placental resistance to flow is either normal, or increased resistance to free flow of fetal blood may occur, shown by doppler imaging of cord blood flow, reported as the S/D (systolic and diastolic) flow ratio. So long as the fetus continues to grow normally, nothing need be done. Significant slowing of fetal growth indicates a C/S is needed. O diastolic flow requires emergency C-section ...Read more

Nt scan/blood results: 1.5mm; Hcg 1.34MoM; PaPP 0.37MoM; Measures 2 days behind GA (11wks.5d). Mom: 30yrs old. How likely is placental insufficiency?

Low Papp-A: Individual test results must be interpreted by the ordering physician who has all the information and can apply it to the clinical scenario. Low 1st TM PAPP-A levels can be associated with fetal growth restriction later in pregnancies. Typically serial fetal growth sonograms are done periodically throughout the pregnancy to monitor for this. ...Read more

Is female orgasmic disorder treatable with home remedies?

Is female orgasmic disorder treatable with home remedies?

Why are my doctors scared about placental insuffincy if they haven't done a ultrasound to even see and im a type 1 diabetic (well controlled)?

Why are my doctors scared about placental insuffincy if they haven't done a ultrasound to even see and im a type 1 diabetic (well controlled)?

Diabetes in pregnanc: I'm sure your doctors are not "scared", maybe concerned would be more appropriate. Diabetes, as I'm sure you know, affects your blood vessels and therefore your circulation. The same goes for your placenta when pregnant, they're not as efficient as a non-diabetic's. That's why they're likely checking your baby's growth regularly, doing nst's, & recommending delivery no later than 38.5-39 weeks. ...Read more

I have a boil on my bottom which is the size of a 1p coin (2cm) is this treatable at home? If so what treatment can I use? No red skin around boil.

Salt water soaks: You may try salt water soaks but whatever you do, do not try to squeeze or pop it yourself. Take 1 table spoon of salt to a pint (large glass) of warm (not hot) tap water. Soak a wash cloth in it then let it sit on the "boil" for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times each day. This may help. ...Read more

Full placental abruption on way to hospital pushed at home thought bowel movement. He survived but bad labor- is 9 with some behavior issues-related?

Full placental abruption on way to hospital pushed at home thought bowel movement. He survived but bad labor- is 9 with some behavior issues-related?

Maybe, maybe not: Abruption can injure baby by decreasing oxygen and nutrient supply during the increased stresses of labor. The first expected markers for injury would be general instability, low blood sugar and seizures within 24 hours. Developmental delays, a seizure disorder and some evidence of cerebral palsy would also be possible. Behavior issues could be linked or arise from a separate trigger. ...Read more
