Will 5 days of taking dilaudid at 35 weeks pregnant cause my baby to go through withdrawal?

Will 5 days of taking dilaudid at 35 weeks pregnant cause my baby to go through withdrawal?

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.

Emergency department doctor gave me dilaudid in my first trimester of my pregnancy, will my baby have side affects?

Emergency department doctor gave me dilaudid in my first trimester of my pregnancy, will my baby have side affects?

No: Rare use of narcotics during pregnancy administered by physician is OK. Becomes more of a problem late in pregnancy if using lots of narcotics as baby can be born addicted and have to go trough narcotic withdrawl, which if you ever watched a newborn do this is a horrible way to start life.

5 months pregnant is there any birth defects or risks of taking dilaudid only a couple times?

5 months pregnant is there any birth defects or risks of taking dilaudid only a couple times?

Dilaudid: Dilaudud is category c, it is not known whether it will harm an unborn baby. It should be used in pregnant women only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. If only used a few times, and in the second trimester, it should be fine as all we have his histories of other pregnant women with similar situations and the babies were healthy, but as stated, no def. Studies.

Risks and birth defects of taking dilaudid/hydromorphone at five months pregnant? Not faily only if needed.

Risks and birth defects of taking dilaudid/hydromorphone at five months pregnant? Not faily only if needed.

Depends on reason: There aren't too many good reasons to be using very potent opioids during pregnancy. If your obstetrician is prescribing and monitoring you, this is probably ok. But in general, less is more. If you don't absolutely need it for legitimate reasons, don't use it.

Hi I have had 2 babies in the space of a year and in the pregnancy my platlets kept going down & now there still going up and down what could cause it?

See hematologist: You should see a hematologist for further evaluation. There are many causes of thrombocytopenia- or low platelets. See a hematologist for a careful history and examination. You could have an autoimmune condition called immune thrombocytopenic purpura- however, other causes have to be ruled out as well that would include pregnancy related thrombocytopenia, vitamin deficiency, other things.

I'm 35w pregnant and my 21m old fell on what i think is my babies head. Could he harm her in there and cause any brain damage to her?

I'm 35w pregnant and my 21m old fell on what i think is my babies head. Could he harm her in there and cause any brain damage to her?

Unlikely: Think of a watermelon in a pool. It bounces around in the water & any direct hit would push it out of the way. Same thing happens in your womb. Babies head is surrounded by water & flexible tissues. Car crash=bad injury but kid bumping yo=not so much.

I went to the doctor at 12weeks 5days pregnant she used the dopplar for a few seconds but did not find the heartbeat, is this normal or do I have something to worry about? At 8 weeks I did have a sonogram and seen the babies heartbeat! i'm nervous cause s

Could be normal : Usually by 12 weeks fhts are heard on fetal doppler. If only a few seconds were tried, it wasn't a very dedicated attempt at listening. It's important to hear fhts both to document a live & healthy fetus and to reassure both mom & OB that all is well. If you have no cramps or bleeding & a nl us @ 8 weeks, you're prob ok. It would have been better though if your OB had let you hear or see the fhr.

Is atopic ezema and asthma in infant cause by diet eg. Seafood, peanut, cold drinks etc during pregnancy?

Is atopic ezema and asthma in infant cause by diet eg. Seafood, peanut, cold drinks etc during pregnancy?

Maybe: A series of studies showed organic milk had healthier fats than conventional milk (more omega 3s, for instance), that the breast milk of women who drank organic had even healthier fat profile than those who drank conventional, & and that the babies born to women who drank organic during pregnancy & nursing had far less eczema. Genetics sets susceptibility, but there are also environmental triggers.

Im 29 weeks pregnant with twins an just had steroid shots for the babies lungs does the shot cause diarehea?

Im 29 weeks pregnant with twins an just had steroid shots for the babies lungs does the shot cause diarehea?

Probably not: Its not listed as one of the typical side GI side effects of betamethasone. However, i suppose it could be one of the uncommon side effects not listed. I usually tell me patients with diarrhea to hydrate and consider taking some immodium or kaopectate (kaolin and pectin).

33 weeks pregnant 2cm dilated babies head is low. I am in extreme pain right now. Feels like my lower uterus ripped. Is this normal? Cause of it?

Not normal: You need to get to the hospital now. Severe/extreme pain is never normal at 33 weeks and it could be something serious like the placenta pulling away or bleeding behind it. Turn off computer and get to er/hospital now!

Causes of lower extremity swelling in someone who injects dilaudid in her thighs?

See a doctor: This may or may not be related to your injection of medication. Things to consider are a cellulitis (skin infection), blood clot in the deep veins of your leg, or just inflammation/clotting of the superficial veins in your leg. Please have yourself evaluated by a doctor asap.
