Why am i losing my appetite at 29 weeks pregnant?

Why am i losing my appetite at 29 weeks pregnant?

Abdomen is full: This would be a question to address with your ob-gyn, who knows you much better than we on healthtap do. Please don't delay. Sometimes increasing uterine fundal height can compress other abdominal organs, so that only smaller meals are tolerated. Still, getting good nutrition is important for you and your baby now. ...Read more

I am 28 weeks pregnant and I am 1cm dilated what do I do?

Increased rest: You are by definition a "high risk" pregnancy because of your age alone. You should avoid straining, squatting, bearing down or any hi impact exercise. Increase time off your feet. Consider shortening your work hours and ask your OB about referral to a "maternal fetal medicine" specialist for further advice. Tho this may be normal if this is not your first pregnancy, i would take every precaution. ...Read more

I am seeing little black floating things and I am nearsighted. What are they?

I am seeing little black floating things and I am nearsighted. What are they?

For how long?: Depending on how long you have had floaters and how irritated you are by them will lead you to go see an opthalmologist. Possible er causes: retinal detachment, or retinal loss, or bleeding within the eyes. But those would be an emergency and i don't think you would have time to ask online. Unless you had them but never saw a dr. For comfort, slightly darker eyeglass lenses may help. ...Read more

I am pregnant 34 weeks now. First, should I stop taking calcium supplement?Second I have been lately feeling pain in my tummy it's like pressure.

I am pregnant 34 weeks now.        First, should I stop taking calcium supplement?Second I have been lately feeling pain in my tummy it's like pressure.

Listen to your body: Calcium supplements can cause constipation which can cause pain. They are not necessary. If one avoids sugar, salt, and fat and eats wholesome vegetables and high quality proteins one gets the correct nutrients. If having dairrhea calcium is probably not the cause of pain. Pressure could come from gas. A tea made with 1 t of thyme leaves steeped for 5 minutes and strained might help. ...Read more

I am 4 weeks pregnant. I was on 750 mg of Depakote for migraines. I stopped immediately. I am very concerned. Any advise or positive info?

I am 4 weeks pregnant. I was on 750 mg of Depakote for migraines. I stopped immediately. I am very concerned. Any advise or positive info?

Likely okay: Depakote is a known teratogen and can cause congenital malformations as you probably read, in a developing embryo/fetus. If you are 4 weeks pregnant, organs have barely started to form, and you'll likely be okay. Be sure to take 800mcg Folic Acid and speak with your doctor right away so that he/she can add some extra ultrasounds to check for any problems. In addition, may see geneticist to discuss. ...Read more

I am 40 years old but I have fibromyalgia .I am takin Effexor (venlafaxine) 75 could I have a baby ? Please advise? Would i be worse?.

Several issues: The effexor, (venlafaxine) as most ssri meds is a category c med meaning no evidence of harm has been found during fetal development, though animal testing may suggest some. Pediatricians like to be aware of rx as these kids can have subdued reactions at birth.I'm not aware of any effect your fibromyalgia would have on the baby & how pregnancy would effect your disease can be addressed by your rheumatologist. ...Read more
