Will 5 days of taking dilaudid at 35 weeks pregnant hurt my baby?

No: Narcotics are not generally thought to be dangerous for development, especially in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Babies in utero can, however, become dependent on such medications. Therefore, the shortest duration of treatment is advised--especially around the timing of delivery. Babies who are exposed to narcotics right before delivery can have (treatable) sleepiness and slow breathing. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant I poked my belly button on metal door jam did I hurt my baby ?

35 weeks pregnant I poked my belly button on metal door jam did I hurt my baby ?

Probably not: Your baby is well protected by your skin layer, uterine layer, and amniotic fluid. A bump from a door jam is unlikely to generate enough force to cause damage. However, go to l&d if you have decreased fetal movements, cramping, pain that is increasing, or any vaginal bleeding. Even though unlikely, an abruption (placental separation)is what we worry about from any trauma. Check with your OB too. ...Read more

Im 35 weeks pregnant and I have a chronic pain in my back my obgyn gave me 5 mg of oxycodone and i been taken them here and there will it hurt my baby?

Im 35 weeks pregnant and I have a chronic pain in my back my obgyn gave me 5 mg of oxycodone and i been taken them here and there will it hurt my baby?

Typically No: Occasional usage of opioids typically is safe during pregnancy. There is always a risk to the baby, but usually early on in development. The big deal happens if you are continuously taking pain medications especially at higher doses. When you deliver your baby will be dependent on these opioids and could precipitate a withdrawal syndrome that might need to be monitored in the nicu. ...Read more

I'm 35 weeks pregnant but ultrasound shows babys head at 36 w , abdomen 34, femur 33weeks 5 days... Should i be concerned ? ?

No: All of those datings are within the margin of error for 35 weeks. Dating by measurements in the third trimester is quite unreliable and as you see with your baby, can vary by several weeks either way. Congratulations, and you are almost there - get lots of rest and pamper yourself before your time is up! ...Read more

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and in the past week my baby has suddenly been having hiccups at least once a day...And past cple days its been 2 to 3 times a d?

Normal: It is ok that your baby has hiccups and sometimes the rhythmic movements are not hiccups but just baby moving. Ther are no known abnormalities associated with this phenomenon. It is reassuring that your baby is active and if the activity suddenly solows then that is something to be concerned about and you should see your doctor and have fetal monitoring. ...Read more

One : One thing that is positive is that even though you have not been aware of fetal movement for the last two days that your baby has a heartbeat and is alive. Normal fetal heart rate is 120 to 160 beats per minute. Fetal bradycardia is less than 120 beats per minute for 10 minutes or longer. Fetal tachycardia is a heart rate of that is faster than 160 beats per minute for 10 minutes or more. Early decelerations occur when the fetal heart rate is below baseline and return to the baseline by the end of the contraction. It is a normal response. In late decelerations, the fetal heart rate drops well after the contraction starts begins and return to baseline after the contraction ends. There are also variable decelerations. They will normally study the the decelerations to determine if they are normal. If the decelerations are abnormal, they would then take whatever medical actions were appropriate. Did they diagnose you with braxton hicks contractions? If so, make sure you are hydrating well. You may need to lie on your left side when you have the contractions. Try not to let your bladder become full. ...Read more

I just started taking insulin at 35 weeks pregnancy.  Will it do any harm to my baby?

Helps/not harms baby: Insulin (i) carries glucose through cell walls so its can be used. The (i) u take/make stays in your body controlling your blood sugar while baby actually begins to make its own during pregnancy. If your blood sugar level stays too high, baby makes xs (i)& puts away the xs sugar as enlarged organs. At delivery babies xs (i) can drive their blood sugar down to 0 & require iv's.Keep your level nl. ...Read more
