Pregnancy Complications

Parent Category: Pregnancy
Ask questions here about reasons for concerns during your pregnancy such as pre-eclampsia, spotting during pregnancy, miscarriages, cramping, etc.
If you cause it on your own it is an abortion unless it is an accident like being hit with a car etc. For abortion you need to see a doctor.
Many people do experience "spotting" at the beginning of theirpregnancy. However, although it is common, it is not a "normal"sign of a healthy pregnancy. Therefore, I would consult your GYN.
Only if they are very bad. Cramps after/during a miscarriage are normal
Not definitely, but it is important that you go to the hospital to get checked out
If you have the most severe form of Spina Bifida, meningomyelocele, there will be a hole in the back, sometimes with bone or just the meninges sticking out of the back at birth. It's pretty hard to miss. If you have the less severe form, Spina Bifida Occulta, doctors often don't know you have it...
The most common one is Folic acid or folate which is a B vitamin.It is also referred to as vitamin B₉.
You can have an ectopic at 3 weeks. I had pain from the day I got pregnant. I felt a constant ache next to my hip bone from conception. I had to have my tube removed because it was not seen soon enough. If you have pain contact your doctor ASAP, it could mean the difference of medicine vs. surgery...
The condition where you need a shunt because of abnormal build upof cerebrospinal fluid on the brain is called hydrocephalus (orcommonly water on the brain).
No, they don't. They can often be because the uterus is stretching to make room for the baby. If they are bad and/or accompanied with bleeding it is important that you go to hospital straight away
Answer . \nAny offensive smell may indicate infection. I recently had a D and C operation and had no offensive smell with next period. Please contact your health provider to be sure.
Bleeding for 4 weeks is normal. If you are pregnant again I can't tell but having unprotected sex means you can be since you are more fertile then usual after giving birth. You have to go see your gyno.
5 week's over for what? (be more specific to get better answers)
Spina bifida doesn't follow a strict inheritance pattern, but hereditary factors do play some role, though it is not completely understood yet. Mothers who have had one child with spina bifida have a 3-4% chance of their next child having spina bifida, while the general population only has a 0.1-0...
Yes it takes about 2 months for the hormones to settle and during that time the test will show pregnant.
Fetal Risk Summary Alprazolam, a member of the benzodiazepine class of agents, is used for the treatment of anxiety. Although no congenital anomalies have been attributed to the use of alprazolam during human pregnancies, other benzodiazepines (e.g., see Diazepam) have been suspected of producing...
Absolutely 100% Yes. If you're pregnant and you smoke weed (or are even around it), your baby could have extremely serious birth defects, or even stillbirth and death. This goes for all drugs, except those prescribed by your doctor (who should be aware of your pregnancy). This type of...
Yes it is normal as long as you don't fill a pad completely and as long as you still feel movement, but if you bleed more than a pad full and it feels like period cramps then you need to see your doctor as soon as possible.
OK there is something wrong with this question because you visited him and he said your uterus was back to normal BEFORE the miscarriage? Jan2 is BEFORE Jan13th!
Miscarriages that occurs in the first trimester is usually due to something wrong with the fetus and in week 6 the heart starts to beat regularly. That could be one reason if there was something wrong with it but the miscarriage could've happened earlier but just hadn't come out yet.
Well what type of tubal did you recieve? There are at least 5 different types and all have different possibilities however being 19 years ago, i HIGHLY doubt they're related.Because after tubal steralization you still have menstration, I really just think it's youre period. Dark blood just means it...
Tylenol has been established as safe during pregnancy. It is notknown to cause miscarriages when taken as recommended. There arevery recent studies that may suggest a link between ADHD inchildren whose mothers took Tylenol during pregnancy, but it is anearly study. They have not yet established if...
Well 2 questions; Your age? If you're under 25, I would definitely not worry about it. Spotting in younger females is extremely common. WHERE is the blood coming from? You say when you wipe so is it coming from inside your vagina or outside? Are you sexually active? Spotting is also very common in...
Maybe you hirt it and now it is bleading alot you need to go to the hospital fast and go check it out ok. P.S. Dr.Health SUP DUDE =)
Spina Bifida occurs when the spinal column and back fail to developproperly. The exact cause(s) of the defect is unknown althoughthere is an identified link in low folic acid has been identified.
i went through the same thing about 2 months ago. i was bleeding very light and they had no heart beat but because i was only 5wks they said that is why they could find the heart beat. i went in a week later and found out i was mis carrying. although it might not be happening in your case it is...
If you are looking for a termination of the pregnancy you have to see a doctor for that.
Because whatever the mother puts in her body will be transferred over to the baby. The umbilical cord is like an extension cord dining from the mother to the baby transferring blood oxygen and sustenance. So when the mother takes the drugs they enter her blood stream and will be pumped to the baby...
My levels went down and now went back up. My doc said it is definitly not a normal pregnancy. So I really don't no right now what is going on. I've heard it could be possibly a ectopic or molar but I'm not sure. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. Good luck to you, I wish you...
Yes. A congenital defect is one the baby is born with, so spina bifida is a congenital defect.
Call your obstetrician's office first, unless they provided otherparameters in advance. They will likely want to know what thetiming is between cramps and they will advise you about when tohead to the hospital. Labor doesn't always start with the water breaking. For me, laborlasted only 6 hours and...

Maybe you have a infection in your boob or something go see a doctor about it
It is when a woman loses a fetus before birth. It can range from spotting to extremely heavy bleeding and may be quite painful.
can progesterone 100 mg make you bleed? I am 60 yrs. of age,,and change of life...
You Should go to your doctor to get a check up, but its nothing urgent. yellow discharge could just mean an infection. stomach pains in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy is also very common. just go get a check up :)
No test tube babies can be just as healthy as a normal born baby.
Yes, this is called a heterotopic pregnancy. It is extremely rare, on the order of 1 in 30,000 to 50,000 pregnancies. On the other hand, heterotopic pregnancies are more common in those with assisted reproduction, up to 1 in 1000 pregnancies.
It differs A LOT when it comes to showing between women, just like all our bodies look differently. I know every woman wants a little bump but for some it doesn't show until the second trimester.
Yes, as it is possible after only a few hours.
Clumps that resemble blood (like the kind you get on your period) may just be excessive blood that did not come out during your cycle. However, If the clump was discolored (white or gray) then there is a possibility that it is a miscarriage. You need to see your doctor if there is any sort of...
Folic acid anemia is a known risk factor for neural tube birthdefects.
Answer . I am sorry, I doubt you are pregnant. You may have been pregnant and had a very early miscarriage but if you have now stopped bleeding I don't suppose you will ever know.
I believe the it is most common for a miscarriage to occur between the 6th and 13th weeks of pregnancy.
I Am 35 Weeks And Got Light Pink And Yellow Discharge, Does It Mean Am In Labour?
My understanding is that it needs to remain abover the coverline in order to sustain a pregnancy. If it drops too much, it can indicate a shortage of progesterone, and that would need to be addressed asap for the pregnancy to continue (shots, or pills?).
Of course if you are pregnant and still having heavy periods it's always best to discuss this with your doctor. I am not positive on this, but I believe it's still possible you can have the baby. We/our bodies are all a little different - some women have a couple periods after becoming pregnant,...
With no bleeding or mild spotting, you could just be having growing pains. Your uterus is going to be growing very fast. I would suggest if you feel uneasy you see your doctor, seeing those 2 little hearts beating will make you feel much better.
No, Spina Bifida is a neural tube defect.
No for the baby to get addicted it has to be the mother who drinks alcohol so the through her the baby gets it.
Yes i have! It is VERY painful! My body forced its self into pre-labor! I have my son without any pain meds due to a miscarriage during that time!
you really can get pregnant at any given time even if your on your period its rare but can happen...
Answer . About half of all early miscarriages happen because of a problem in the way genetic material from the egg and sperm has combined during fertilisation.. Imbalances in pregnancy hormones, problems in the immune system, and some serious infections (not minor coughs or colds) are also...
There is no treatment or cure for this. Physical treatment can be used: closure of the defect in the first 24 hours, medications, and physiotherapy.
In my opinion, the best support you can get if you or a familymember was born with Spina Bifida is from closed groups onFacebook, just search "Spina Bifida" and you will find them. I aman adult that was born with Spina Bifida and the best support I'vefound is in closed Facebook groups (they are...
The chance to still be pregnant after a D&C is very slim but you can however be pregnant again.
Yes if you had sex before your period came back. But remember that it can take the hormones almost 2 months to settle and during that time you can have pregnancy symptoms and show positive on the test.
I think any type of bleeding signals a trip to your doctors office for an ultrasound in your early weeks in pregnancy. I read so many online blogs about spotting while being 7 weeks pregnant and it gave me hope and made me optimistic. I had my first ultrasound when I was 6 weeks 5 days pregnant and...
You can have a small amount of spotting when an egg implants. I would take a pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant.
The exercise will have to be quite extreme for that and if you go too far you will feel sick since your body will protect the fetus first. Diet pills can harm the fetus but not necessarily make you miscarry. Either way, if you are just worried about your pregnancy you should know that no one should...
Answer . i believe it all began in transilvanya with the vampire king count Dracula NOOOOO! I am Romanian (Transylvania is merely a region of Romania) and a folklorist and I an tell you that vampires are NOT part of our mythology. We DO have legends about a sort of undead (mischievous and/or...
The word is from Latin ( peri + geo = close + Earth) The point in the orbit of the Moon, or a satellite, where it is closest to the Earth.
call your doctor... as helpful as answers in this forum might be don't rely on it for your baby's health if something serious could be wrong. note: I don't know anything about this, i dont know if this is normal or a problem, just go to your doctor.
\n. \n Answer \n. \nNo, because you aren't the only one who has to go through that. If he's on TDY or over seas, or even on an excercise it's completely normal for him to have to work constantly. My dad had to leave me when i was two weeks old for a tour over seas for a year. this guy loves you...
It can take a couple of months until the period comes back or you could be pregnant again.
Spina Bifida is a neural tube defect.
i had a miscarrage a little over a month ago, i didnt even know. but apparently, if you have had morning sickness it will go away even before you hit the second trimester. and the doc asked if i had pains too. i didnt have any of these, so i guess you dont reall know till you get the 12 week scan. ...
Technically, a second-trimester miscarriage is a loss that happens between 12 and 20 weeks. A pregnancy loss after 20 weeks would be classified as a stillbirth or a neonatal death. A number of factors can lead to second-trimester miscarriage. Some miscarriages diagnosed in early in the second...
Though he's barely the size of a kumquat - a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom - and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs...
Answer . If your period was not due for 2 weeks, it sounds as if you had some ovulation spotting, which is completely normal and might or might not happen every month.
Answer . \nInadequate breathing. If you don't get enough air then your whole body stops. When this happens just stop for a minute, catch your breath(don't stop too long) and get going!
No. It takes a fertilized embryo to produce the trophoblastic tissue required to implant successfully into the uterine endometrium. Also, without increasing levels of HCG, the endometrium sloughs off (called "having your period), taking the unfertilized egg with it.
Hi, I had an Ectopic pregnancy and my right tube was removed.This was my first pregnanacy and I was devastated with the experience.. Doctor suggested me to avoid pregnancy for at least 6months..So waiting for That now..
I know of no birth defects associated with diet pill use, but know two things: 1) As soon as you discover you are pregnant, you should stop taking all over-the-counter medicines until you first talk with your doctor and get his okay. 2) No one who is pregnant should be taking diet pills, so don't...
yes . 14-month old boy was diagnosed with four congenital heartdefects. He was admitted into the children's hospital where doctorsknew immediately that the boy would need surgery. Surgeons realizedthat creating a 3D model of the boy's heart would help study thedefects and save the boy's life. Doctor...
You can contact Planned Parenthood and discuss your options with them and they can redirect you to the person or clinic depending on what you choose to do. If you do choose abortion you have to do it at a clinic. See more info in related link below.
Yes teenage girls can bleed during pregnancy as well as adults can.If you think you may be pregnant best thing to do is get a test.
It increases the risk but there is no sure way it will. When pregnant they suggest Tylenol if you are in pain. If you need it often you need to speak to your doctor.
So many drugs are blamed as abortion causing agents. But they do not cause abortion without seriously doing harm to the mother. Only abortion pills which contain mifepristone and misoprostol are used to cause abortion in early pregnancy.
Not the baby in the fallopian tube but you can have another baby. The baby can't come down to the uterus and keep growing and if it stays in the tube the tube will burst and you can die.
Early pregnancy symptoms: . Abdominal cramping . Breast tenderness . Nipple tenderness . Food cravings . Nausea or vomiting . Headache . Tiredness . Dizziness . Missed period

Yes, if you did have one they should check so everything is out so you don't get infections.
I don't know when this happened but always when in pain like this and the miscarriage is over go see your doctor.
sometimes mild cramps are said to be your insides moving around getting ready to make room for you little bundle but if you aren't sure i'd give your midwife or doctor a call, they'll always be happy to put your mind at ease! xx
Yes you can have a miscarriage at 4 weeks I have hade a miscarriage at 2 weeks.
During a miscarriage at the 12 week point you can see large clots (that look much like raw liver) and you can also see the baby's body. The baby will look somewhat grey (hence the term grey matter). You should bleed for a few days. At first the bleeding and cramping might be severe but if there are...
I'm no doctor but I'm sure this is placenta previa.... have you been told this is happening to you? my mum had this with my little brother, there are varying degrees of the condition, best case - they keep an eye on you and you carry on as normal, worst case you may have to have a c-section .........
Exercise is actually good when pregnant and if you have started miscarrying it will take it's time and you should let it. Don't force it.
If it did, it would be listed on the label.
