Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy week by week baby center


1432741 tn?1300202363 INTRODUCTION This week your baby is undergoing some extraordinary changes and developments. The head, heart, spinal cord, and some of the larger blood vessels begin to form. As these blood vessels form, the heart begins to pump fluid through them, and your baby's first red blood cells are created. Your baby is about 7 - 9 mm or 0.27 - 0.35 inches in length, (approximately the size of a grain of rice), and weighs about 1/30 of an ounce - less than a breath mint.
Avatar n tn I am now almost 30w and about 2 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. Anyway I did not pass my one hour test but I passed my three hour test. I have heard of this happening alot. Why did they test you so early? Most of the time you don't get tested unter between 26-30 weeks depending on the doctor. I was tested at 26 weeks.
Avatar f tn Over the last few days I have noticed a small lump or baby like structure on my lower abdomen when I touch it and it is growing and moing to the center lower stomach. This is my first pregnancy. Is this my uterus or baby or something to worry about? It is now a little smaller than my palm?
178295 tn?1196989533 He's not genuinely concerned of his patients only how well his clinic is doing in terms of numbers of people he can get through the door, he is rude and patronising, charges a fortune if you're from out of the country $1,000 to get monitored initially, doent look at your faxed results and someone got back to me a week later by that stage it was my day 15!!
Avatar m tn Ultrasounds between 18th to 26th weeks of pregnancy are most accurate to decide the sex of baby and also depend on the expertise of the ultrasonologist. Amniocentesis can determine the sex as early as 9th-11th week. So if in doubt, you can get another test at some other center. Take care!
Avatar m tn Every pregnancy and situation is so different. I've heard of women having perfectly healthy babies. Here is what I learned when I became a volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center... A doctor came in and spoke with us and said that when the fetus is 8 weeks old is the point in which long term affects of alcohol and drugs will take their toll. At 2-8 weeks of development is when their organogenesis occurs (the layer of the fetal pole where the organs will begin to form and grow).

414635 tn?1272221293 Wow this week is flying by. Nothing much to report here. Mady is taking 5 or so steps then realizes we are not helping her and then she dives down to the floor. It is sooo cute the face she gets when we get excitied when she takes her 5 or so steps though. Pure pride. We are pretty much weaned of all nursings except for when Mady feels the need to be comforted. Then she yanks my shirt down. It is pretty funny.

Avatar n tn It has been hard to find out a BlueCrossBS accepting medical center in our area that can terminate if we are advised by doctors. Please do let us know in the forum what you find out.
Avatar f tn The baby classes place called me to tell me that i need to start classes next week. I forgot to call and cancle them after i lost the baby. She told me she would call me back in a few weeks to reschedule for the new baby.
Avatar n tn on my second u/s we still didn't see anything so I asked the doctor to go ahead and terminate the pregnancy, because its so hard for me to have all the symptoms of a real pregnancy and knowing that there's not a baby growing inside of you. My doctor said he couldn't do it until we had a second opinion so he schedule an appointment for me at my local hospital for another u/s. At the hospital they made two u/s, one was vaginal and the other was on my tummy.
Avatar n tn this is my second pregnancy i had a m/c my first pregnancy at 12 weeks... im crossing my fingers to see something next week...

1276121 tn?1420864200 If I don't have an appointment with them by 12/20 then I'm to keep my appointment with Dr Lynne on 12/20. 12/14 ultrasound done by surprise at imaging center but the tech would not say much. I saw baby and heard the heartbeat, she would not say what the hr was though. I also saw on the screen that the measurement was 8w5d. 12/20 follow up with Dr. Lynne for ultrasound results which he said everything looked great.
Avatar f tn The good thing is it works in weeks not months anymore and you are usually undetectable by week 4. Good luck with your treatment. Hopefully this is the the end for us. Watch how great you will begin to feel from this medicine. It is a miracle worker, its just too bad it is so expensive and not everyone has access.
Avatar f tn anyone familiar or heard, know, experienced taking subutex while pregnant? i am now on 1mg per day and there is limited studies. please help.
Avatar f tn I'm 18 and have a nine week old son, I freaked out my entire pregnancy wondering if I was ready because I certainly didnt feel it. I even thought about adoption right up until I had him. The day I had him chnaged my life. Each and every day I love him even more. I couldn't imagine life without him. It's a natural thing to be a mum .
Avatar f tn My husband's insurance won't kick in until November, and it won't cover my pregnancy. So, we need as many LOW COST options as we can get. Please help!
1900462 tn?1352778902 Alright so I've been reading up and researching and I really want to either do a home birth or give birth at a freestanding birth center.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if I'm still in shock or if I'm in denial but I'm just having a really hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I'm pregnant and that in 24 weeks there is going to be a baby in my arms that is mine. I have always been up in the air if I wanted kids and was honestly leaning more to the "no" side... this pregnancy was a complete surprise and not what we were trying for at all. My boyfriend is so excited and can't wait to be a dad.... me on the other hand.
1684282 tn?1505701570 What if a woman gets addicted to drugs or alcohol while she is young and foolish? Can she still have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby? I get asked these questions very often from concerned women who either want to get pregnant or are already pregnant and want to know the consequences of their mistakes. We all know that our actions must bear consequences, but our children should not be the ones bearing the brunt of them.
Avatar f tn She had been taking Depo shots every month the entire pregnancy (remember, she didn't know she was pregnant) and she had a very sweet, healthy, but TINY little baby boy. That being said, you need to get a preg. test (though late in pregnancy some women's HCG levels dip). The only way to know for 100% sure you are pregnant is to see a doctor and to get an ultrasound. You could also have fibroids and be mistaking it for pregnancy. So definitely get a test, then let us know what is going on!
174267 tn?1220408828 The sac was still growing - showed that I was in my tenth week but the baby still showed 6w 3d, no change since in size since the may 5th ultrasound. I waited 9 hours in the hospital to be told that I could wait 6 - 12 hours more for surgery or opt to come back for a scheduled surgery on Sunday. Plus there was a chance that the doctor who did such a bad job on my tubial ligation 12 years ago would be the one performing the surgery if I waited. We chose Sunday.
9663463 tn?1407529154 People think I'm being selfish about my pregnancy because I don't like them touching me or just going out and getting the baby things.
4232443 tn?1352837570 I then went to this Christian pregnancy counseling center because I didn't know what to do, I was in college, waitressing, and knew I couldn't support my baby. But after I met with the woman and cried with her for hours, I knew everything would work out just fine. I told my baby's father first, then my best friend, who will be the godmother.
394881 tn?1200943412 i was about to type the same thing as DSYBAHENA....Is that a picture of you? If it is then you are pregnant and pretty far along i would think. If your period is 3 weeks late then you can take a test now and it will show an accurate answer.
Avatar m tn every 4 weeks until the 28th week of pregnancy then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks then once a week until delivery At each examination, your weight and blood pressure are usually recorded. The size and shape of your uterus may also be measured, starting at the 22nd week, to determine whether the fetus is growing and developing normally. During one or more of your visits, you'll be asked to provide a small urine sample to be tested for sugar and protein.
Avatar f tn Im 34 weeks today. Im 17 years old (i know i shouldve waited, but plz dont judge), with no support. Yes, i live with my boyfriend who has a really good job that pays well, but he hasnt gotten our unborn daughter (Aria) anything (my due date is December 20). Ive been tryna get a job since a month before i turned 15, but no one will hire me bc ive never worked before. My mother gets an SSI check every month, but always uses all of it before her next check comes through. && my grandmother?
147172 tn?1226761778 They can and should help you and if you are honest there is less chance of you getting into trouble and having your baby taken away. If you are so late into your pregnancy that stopping isn't an option, take as little as possible, pray and talk to your dr. Hopefully, it won't be an issue. I do need to say though that although the pregnancy is obviously important, you need to have some sort of a plan for after the baby is born.
