Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy month by month fetal development


Avatar n tn I have a healthy 16 month old and had a perfect pregnancy with him, right down to the delivery. I really want to have more and so freaked out by my recent miscarriages. I too want to start immediately ttc, my question to you ladies is, to the women who got pregnant right after your unfortunate mc,(I'm very sorry): ) did you guys take your bbt or use ovulation sticks or did you just happen to get pregnant on that lucky day, whenever that was? how often should we try?
Avatar n tn I am 33 weeks and for the last month or so, about 1-2 times a week, I feel these weird movements. Sometimes it feels like she's vibrating or something. I hate to even say it, but it feels almost like she's shaking like somebody having a seizure would. It creeps me out. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
Avatar n tn I couldn't help but feel such depression sweeping over me. This is my second pregnancy. My last pregnancy had ended in a miscarriage last year and I was about 5 mo. The doctor did a vaginal u/s. She told me that she found the pregnancy sac, and she could somewhat see the yolk, but she said that she didn't see the fetal pole. I'm quite concerned, because I really want this baby badly. I'm scared of losing the baby.

221025 tn?1332558946 Why is it medically performed in the first trimester? To confirm pregnancy and help rule out ectopic pregnancy by locating a probable position. If the stress of it is just too much that you feel you have to rent one and hear that heartbeat for yourself or you will go crazy - then that is up to you - but just understand that it is not absolutely without its risks. When they developed x-rays, it took them years to find out it caused cancer.
Avatar f tn I had my first US yesterday. According to my LMP, I am 7 weeks, 3 days. The ultrasound measurements indicate an age of 5.5 weeks to 6 weeks of age. The doctor was concerned by this, and by a "low heart rate". Although a bit hard to see, we could see the baby's heart motion as it was beating, however they did not pick up heart tones and did not estimate a heart rate. The yolk sac was there, and the gestational sac looked "a little crinkly" according to the doc.
Avatar n tn I am doing one this coming Monday, but in the meantime, I have all day morning sickness and have just started throwing up as I did with my last pregnancy. I had a normal pregnancy with my 18 month old daughter with the same type of morning sickness, so I am hoping this leaves me hope. Has anyone else been diagnosed with no fetal pole but also morning sickness that is not going away? I would appreciate any feedback.

Most of the major trials and studies even when administered by drug comanies or teaching hospitals, receive the bulk of their overall funding from the NIH. These are the realities and politics of the situation according to my analysis.
Avatar n tn Week 6 Gestational Age (Fetal age 4 weeks) 5 ½ to 6 ½ weeks is usually a very good time to detect either a fetal pole or even a fetal heart beat by vaginal ultrasound. The fetal pole is the first visible sign of a developing embryo. This pole structure actually has some curve to it with the embryo’s head at one end and what looks like a tail at the other end. The fetal pole now allows for crown to rump measurements (CRL) to be taken, so that pregnancy dating can be a bit more accurate.

Avatar n tn I found out I have a rare form of hypothyroidism in my 8th month of pregnancy. I was given levothyroxine by my endocrinologist and told that the hypothyroidism wouldn't affect my baby...but everything I read online says it affects their mental capacity. Since they didn't find this out til my last trimester I'm scared about how this baby will end up. Has anyone found out late in their pregnancy and still had a normal child? Also, I never had any symptoms of this...
Avatar m tn Protein may indicate preeclampsia (a condition that develops in late pregnancy and is characterized by a sudden rise in blood pressure and excessive weight gain, with fluid retention and protein in the urine). Screening for diabetes usually takes place at 12 weeks for women who are at higher risk of having gestational diabetes (diabetes that occurs during pregnancy).

Avatar f tn OMAHA — Abortion rights foes emboldened by a new Nebraska law that restricts late-term procedures based on the disputed notion that fetuses can feel pain after 20 weeks are pushing for similar legislation in other states, particularly those where Republicans won big in November. National Right to Life held a strategy conference this week in Arlington, Va.
Avatar n tn I am sorry you are going through this. First of all, is your cycle every 28 days? IF not then it's normal to be off on your dates. My cycle varies 35-40 days so I ovulate a week to 10 days later. I know your confusion on dating your pregnancy. If you have read this thread you will see I went through similar scare. when I went back @7w 6d I did have a heart beat of 151. now I have to go for a level 2 u/s in 2 weeks due to "globular" looking fetal pole instead of linear...
Avatar n tn Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, HEPSERA should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed and after careful consideration of the risks and benefits. Pregnancy Registry To monitor fetal outcomes of pregnant women exposed to HEPSERA, a pregnancy registry has been established. Healthcare providers are encouraged to register patients by calling 1-800-258-4263.

Avatar n tn In fact, I have a close friend who bled nearly 5 months of her pregnancy. My own mom also bleed right through pregnancy, and, well, here I am! Unfortunately, of course there is always the possibility that something is not right. However, it is your job to eat right, rest, and try to stay positive.
Avatar m tn - Empty sac, no heart beat, no sight of fetus. By 30mm or 8 weeks, MUST see heartbeat. If not its an abnormal pregnancy. 90% confirm blighted ovum. Miscarriage might happen at anytime.

Avatar n tn may vary despite being on the same dose. Elevated TSH levels are sometimes associated with fetal development problems, there are few studies that are well-designed that address this issue; however, one study suggested slightly lower IQ scores for offspring of hypothyroid women. In your case I would consider going back on Synthroid (stay consistent with brand) at a dose between 125-137mcg/day and TSH as well as T4 should be measured every 6-8 weeks during pregnancy.
Avatar n tn They need to be on a high salt, high fluid regimen. Their pregnancy should go well but should be managed as a high risk pregnancy by their obstetrician. During their delivery, their physicians need to ensure that they are volume expanded and like other high risk deliveries, they should not have to undergo prolonged labor. Finally, I tell them that they should be aware that they may feel worse in the puerperium (after their delivery) when their symptoms may return.
Avatar n tn I'm a Juvenille Diabetic, but had gotten my blood sugars running great. Yesterday was the last day of my period so I'm hoping to be pregnant by next month. Of course I'm worried something will go wrong, but I try not to think about it. It's perfect timing for me to have another child, because I will be finishing nursing school in May. Just keep my family in your thoughts. I wish everyone luck on having a baby. May God Bless!
Avatar f tn I did a lot of preparation with the charting, like 4 months of keeping track of things. Then we got it on our first try. I consider us very lucky because it's not always that easy for most, but I believe that all my prep work played a big part in our success. And yes, it is very important to be relaxed when trying, and not just for the sake of conception, but it's also important for your marriage.
Avatar n tn I'm having severe anxiety borderline panic attacks in public with severe trembling all over and headaches. I'm concerned for fetal development though, and would cut off even sooner if it weren't for seizure risk. Fortunately, I'm a teacher and off this summer, so I can be a bit of a hermit while I tear free of this drug. Wish I would have tried to go off when i first started trying to conceive. Good luck to you all!
Avatar n tn My question is, what kind of complications can I expect due to the poor control before pregnancy, and how can I prevent or help these problems with tight control during pregnancy? My Dr was unable to answer some of my questions and wants me to see my OBGYN, but I am not able to see him for another week. My Dr today asked me if I planned to "go through with it". Of course I want to, but are my risks going to out-weigh the chances of a healthy child?
Avatar n tn I just had it checked by a nurse 2 weeks ago and she gave me a pregnancy test then and said it was negative. I don't know if I can handle this thing for 5 years. But I got pregnant on the OrthoTricyclen and I didn't like the patches. I had the shot for 3 years and they told me I couldn't do it anymore.
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03).
Avatar n tn is it normal to get a negative pregnancy test 24 hours after embryo transfer?
