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

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I'm 35 weeks pregnant with twins. Was having pretty strong contractions sitting in my chair so I went and laid down and they stopped. Babies moved all night long which they don't typically do. Am I getting closer to labor?

I'm 35 weeks pregnant with twins. Was having pretty strong contractions sitting in my chair so I went and laid down and they stopped. Babies moved all night long which they don't typically do. Am I getting closer to labor?

Labor with twins: Well, you are getting closer to labor and delivery because you are 35 weeks pregnant. A term pregnancy even with twins is 40 weeks. Twins are most frequently born between 35 and 37 weeks gestation. So you are close. ...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

I'm 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?

I'm 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?

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

I am 35 weeks pregnant and had two abortions and one induced abortion at 5 months due to holoprosencephaly child that was very painful want to know how much painful this time ll be to deliver a baby and whether baby will come on time or earlier?

I am 35 weeks pregnant and had two abortions and one induced abortion at 5 months due to holoprosencephaly child that was very painful want to know how much painful this time ll be to deliver a baby and whether baby will come on time or earlier?

Labor hurts: Most women find labor a lot of work and painful. They are blessed with selective forgetting since most are willing to do it again later. Your history of prior abortions will have no particular impact on the process. Labor will start when it decides to. Only about 5% deliver on their due date while 80% + deliver within 2 wks of it. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant got a growth scan done. Baby is measuring right but weight wise is small. He only weighs 4 pounds 13 ounces is this bad?

Need more info: Is the 35 weeks gestational age a good number? Were there earlier scans in the first trimester? Was the amniotic fluid amount normal? Does the mother have pregnancy induced hypertension? Does the mother smoke? Most important, was the abdominal circumference measurement done correctly? Small errors in the abdominal circumference measurement can affect the estimated weight greatly. ...Read more

I'm a little over 35 weeks pregnant and my baby doesn't move near as much as she used to. I might feel 3 kicks a day, if that! Is this normal?

Daily quickening: You should feel your baby kick every few hours at 35 weeks, so three times in a day is probably ok, especially if your recent ultrasound was normal and your ongoing monitoring shows no concerns. You should be checked by your obstetrician. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant, had a growth scan and everything measured on time and correctly. The fluid level is good but baby only weighs 4 pounds 13 ounces bad?

Probably not bad: Sonograms are not very accurate at estimating the weight of an unborn baby. If you are healthy, eat a well balanced diet, have been gaining weight and have had an uncomplicated normal pregnancy and your counts of your baby's movements are good, there is little cause for alarm. Another growth scan with amniotic fluid index BPPand estimated fetal weight in 2 weeks may be all the reassurance you need ...Read more
