Pregnancy trimester development

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy trimester development


Avatar n tn Hello, Any sort of medicines especially the antibiotics are not safe during pregnancy especially the first trimester when organ development occurs. Hence you should try for conception only when your doctor has stopped all the medicines. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
475489 tn?1223951882 Conception Another mathematical method where you take the 38 weeks of post-conception development, divide by three, and add two weeks. Here the second trimester begins at 14w5d and the third at 27w3d. Hope this helps Brandi 22.
667409 tn?1309155783 He was stuck for two hours, his shoulders were wasn't pretty. At that time, I *wasn't* diagnosed with gestation diabetes. THIS pregnancy, I have GD. I go every four weeks for ultrasounds to check baby's size. My MD has been saying all along he would likely induce at 37 weeks given the GD and my history of a large baby. SOOOO...I went to an appt yesterday. Saw the nurse practitioner (whom I LOVE and she has been with this MD for ten years). I asked her about getting induced early.
Avatar n tn Bone structure starts in the first part of the second trimester. Its not at all uncommon for babies to not have bone structure in the first trimester. I would not be so hasty to terminate. Give it a couple months to see what progresses of the pregnancy!!!!!
Avatar n tn I am also very distraught that my levels were so bad during the entire first trimester which is the most important for development. What are the chances that this baby will have slower motor development and/or neurological impairment due to this delay in getting it treated. Please help. This is keeping me from sleep and being present with my toddler. I am seeing a therapist to try to work through this but I need more info! Thank you.
Avatar f tn the 1st trimester is the most important for the baby's development. Has she been to the doctor yet? I would encourage her to be completely honest with the doctor so they can provide her with sound advise.
Avatar f tn I have just entered my 2nd trimester. Recently the doc has found that I'm suffering from placenta preavia. Should I also go for down syndrome test to check if my baby development is good and nothing defect is taking place.
Avatar f tn I put your last month period in my phone (I have a pregnancy app on my phone that calculates everything from the first date of your last period, date you convieved, etc) It says you are due March 30, 2012. You conceived July 8, 2011, and your currently 25 weeks 2 days pregnant. I don't understand either since you went to the doctor. Did they do an ultrasound??? I am not doctor, that info is just based on the first day of your last months period. Let me know.
1182418 tn?1292440601 thanks ladies! i did end up switching to a new a military wife so i just assumed that whoever i got at my visits, i had to see. I requested to never see that Doctor again, she was extremely rude and told me i was obese! I will definitely get some nuts to snack on, i never thought about that!
Avatar n tn i read the blogs,mfg info and warnings against pregnancy,the registry and 3rd party opinions. but no where do i see,based on pregnancies "known" to date,what the "likelyhood" that a full term pregnancy will result in birth defects,or that miscarriage will occur.just a lot of extrapolating,pontificating,speculating.after all,this med has been used for some time now,pregnancies have occured,babies have been born(or not).
Avatar f tn Has anyone done the 1st trimester genetic screening? If so what did they do?
Avatar f tn Also the most critical part of the fetal development is in the first trimester. I'm still on the fence but a glass sure sounds nice. But I don't think I will have one.
1446228 tn?1330972286 Anyone do acupuncture through their first trimester? The provider that I see specializes in fertility and was referred to my by my RE when I was going through IVF. Now I am wondering if I should keep going. Thanks ladies!
Avatar n tn It said this is not good and even though we found a HB, that there is only a single digit % chance that this pregnancy will go on. He also told us that if it did, by miracle, go on, that we should consider an amino because of much higher risks of genetic problems. Has anyone had this experience and if so, what was there outcome, both good and bad? My husband and I feel like this is a double edged sword and are heart broken...
Avatar f tn I am on prometrium 200mg 2x a day which is supposed to hold the pregnancy. I feel like I should take another HPT to be sure I am still pg. Is this normal to be so worried or do I need to calm down a little and just relax...I know, I know...probably calm down and relax. Anyones experiences would be really helpful to hear. My RE has me down for an ultrasound next Mon, which I thought was really early. He said they do them at 6, 8, and then I "graduate" to an OBGYN.
Avatar f tn hi there, I'm in first trimester of pregnancy with a tsh level of 2.38 and a free t4 range of 7.2, are both levels normal?
Avatar m tn hi Dr. Prasad, today I almost completed my 9th week of pregnancy. 4 weeks ago my TSH was 17 and FT4 is 1.8. now, the TSH went down but still high; it is 8.27 and my FT4 1.5, my doctor increased the dose in a very strange alternate manner to 250 one day and 200 the next day. My concern is the fetus and its health and development, is he taking his dose from the medication, what if the 1st trimester passed and my TSH remained high.
Avatar f tn The unfortunate few still experience morning sickness late into the second trimester and some their whole pregnancy. Consider yourself lucky to see the end of it. Stay positive:) I know its scary to have no control of what is going on in your own body.
1503874 tn?1312313066 It is controversion whether the 3-D ultrasound is completely safe, and the recommendations that I have seen (from college of radiologists) actually state that ultrasounds (of all types) should be limited to those medically necessary and conducted as quickly as possible to limit the foetus exposure, rather than just to 'take a look', and 3-D ultrasounds seem to have a lot of cautions.
Avatar n tn I, myself, would try not to take anything in the first trimester as that is the most critical time in development but I also do not have arthritis or anything like that. If your OB said it was OK then you should probably trust her/his opinion or call your pharmacist and ask them.
Avatar n tn Hi all, anyone know what supplement that we can take during the first trimester.. supplement that can help to smooth the pregnancy and good for the baby inside (for brain development and so on) thanks.. p/s: this is our first time..
Avatar m tn My concern is the baby and its health and development, is he taking his dose from the medication, what if the 1st trimester passed and my TSH remained high. I am always hearing that since I am under medication with close monitoring no matter the readings are. Please let me know if there is any risk on the baby development and if the dose I am taking doesnt have any impact on both of us.
1310824 tn?1332381229 Development, Gestation, Conception. They give different dates for when the second trimester begins and for when the third trimester begins. Your health care provider might prefer to use the Development method, while another Midwife or Doctor may use the Gestation method. I am sure they do that just to confuse pregnant women. by Development: This uses actual developmental stages to divide up a pregnancy. From LMP to 12 weeks the embryo develops all the major organs and becomes a fetus.
1428239 tn?1333460653 From 27 weeks on the fetus finishes development and prepares for delivery. Here the second trimester begins at 12w 0d and the third at 27w 0d. by Gestation: With this method you take the 40 weeks of gestation and divide by three. Here the second trimester begins at 13w 3d and the third at 26w 6d. by Conception: This method is where you take the 38 weeks of post conception development, divide by three, and add two weeks. Here the second trimester begins at 14w 5d and the third at 27w 3d.
Avatar n tn Hello, Treatment of giardiasis in pregnancy can be difficult. Metronidazole is often avoided based upon old reports of teratogenic effects in rats, although human studies have not documented such risks. If symptoms of giardiasis are minimal, therapy can be withheld until after delivery. If symptoms are bothersome, paromomycin (25 to 35 mg/kg per day PO in three divided doses for seven days) can be used.
