I have a history of hypoglycemia, should my baby's heart rate be checked twice weekly at 32 weeks?

High BS--yes, low--? There are guidelines but no simple answers. An OB care provider who examines an entire OB and medical history plus results of blood tests and prenatal diagnosis and ultrasounds and who knows about the physical findings (weight, bp, etc.) is the best person to determine who needs fetal monitoring, when it should be started and how often it should be done. The same applies for biophysical profiles.

I have been goin to da doctors lately checking on my baby girl im almost 32 weeks pregnant and my baby heart rate 200 and im a little scared.?

Not normal. Assuming you do not have a fever, a fetal heart rate of 200 BPM is not normal. We call this fetal tachycardia. You should have an official electronic fetal heart rate tracing done asap. You may also need a fetal echocardiogram and possibly a consultation with a maternal fetal medicine specialist. Read more...

Better late. There are risks to your baby from tobacco use during pregnancy.

Certainly will help. I'm not going to lie to you - you baby has been exposed to a lot of toxic chemicals for 32 weeks. But just as quitting helps you within 15 minutes of quitting, quitting at any point provides a better outcome for the baby. Better oxygen getting to baby within hours of quitting. Chemicals out of baby's system starting within days.Great that you want to turn your life into healthy one for you & baby! Read more...

What are hypoglycemia's effects on heart rate and blood pressure?

Hypoglycemia. Low blood sugar may cause palpitations or fast heart rate, and causes a weak, shaky feeling. Blood pressure may go up (due to heart working harder with stress) or down (due to overall weakness effect) or remain normal. If someone feels like sugar is low and unable to test right away, it's safe to eat/drink extra to bring sugar up than to wait and risk passing out, etc. Read more...
