Will The Doctor Strip My Membrane At 39 Weeks
Im 38 weeks pregnant, will a exercise ball help me go into labor? What are the chances of a membrane stripping at 39 weeks work also.
Bouncing can help: You could also do pretend jump roping for a total of 60 minutes a day in 10 minute sessions. Eating eggplant can be a help. Stripping membranes is not a good idea unless the cervix is effaced completely and beginning to dilate since it can cause rupture of the membranes and a need to deliver in 24 hours to prevent infection. ...Read more
My 1st pregnancy at 28 weeks i was effaced 90% 3/4 dilated put on bed rest. With this 2nd pregnancy will i be dilated faster and have the baby early?
Depends on the dr: New protocols using tunescent ( local) anestheisa obviate the need for pre op blood work providing a good and complete history is obtained.. ( no history of bleeding disoroders, platelet problems etc) and good general health and no history of reactions to local anesthesia in the past ( ie during dental procedures). In those cases patients don't routinely need pre op blood work. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

I suffered pprom at 16 weeks in my twin gestation and lost my boys at 25 weeks. In my next pregnancy should my cervix be stitched/sewn?
Not necessarily.: It depends on your other obstetrical outcomes too; your history does not mean you have an incompetent cervix that merits cervical cerclage placement. I am sorry you had such a bad outcome with your previous pregnancy, however if you have a singleton pregnancy next time your risk should be back at baseline (11-12% for the U.S.). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily from now on to prevent sptd. ...Read more

How doctor determine the minimum rate on my pacemaker? at the beginning, my base rate is 60 bpm, but then changed to 70 bpm. Why?
Depends: In general the rate of the pacemaker is set depends on the condition that requires the need for the device .So if the heart is slow causing symptoms then it is set at a higher rate than the baseline ,and can be adjusted as needed. Or if the slow heart predisposes to frequent premature beats or attacks of rapid heart beat then it is set even higher.The rate it is set is arbitrary and changeable ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If im taking a pregnany test at the doctors and pee some of my urine into the toilet then.into the cup will the results screw up?
No prob: You may have been asked to provide a "mid-stream urine specimen" on a previous occasion, when the doctor was making sure you didn't have a bladder infection. This technique washes out the urethra from contamination and gives a more accurate answer. If you're checking for pregnancy, initial-, mid-, or late-stream urine doesn't matter; because the pregnancy hormone HCG is all mixed in there. ...Read more
