Vicoden is one of the few drugs that SEEMS to have no adverse reactions to the unborn fetus. However, as with any other substance/controlled substance, it is always better to be safe than sorry and not to take these medications while pregnant. On a further note, Vicoden is a medication designed to …target pain that is muscular/joint/etc.-related. It will NOT help a headache or migraine, and is not designed for that. Not only do I know this medically (my profession), but I have known people to try it -- unsuccessfully. If you are taking Vicoden (or Lortab, Hydrocodone, etc.) for a headache, the only thing it will do is increase your chances of becoming an addicted mother. It is also a depressant; and can cause you to feel tired, unmotivated, and eventually even depressed. For the best possible outcome here, which would be a healthy mother and a healthy baby, skip the narcotics all together. ( Full Answer )
Answer . If the doctor knows you are 30 weeks pregnant and wants to do it, it's probably safe. If you have questions, talk to the doctor and find out if there are any risks and what they are..
Is it safe to go into a public swimming pool if you are 38 weeks pregnant and the cervix is starting to soften?
Answer . Certainly. There is a plug of mucus in your cervix blocking off the path to bacteria then you also have your bag of waters protecting the baby. So go, have fun. Swimming is GREAT for pregnant women.
As sinus surgery is not an emergency I would put it off as the baby is just developing. If you are going through fertility treatment and know the exact date of ovulation you can then know how long you have been pregnant down to the day. this is why Doctors say you are pregnant 38-40 weeks because of…ten they do not know the exact date of ovulation or implantation. there fore you can know if you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. If you have had surgery before a pregnancy can be detected speak with you gynocologist about possible side effects. They will do a test before any surgery to rule out pregnancy. so if you test positive then they will not perform the surgey anyway. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nNo. The chemicals in the dye can get in your blood stream and transfer to your baby. There are other chemicals you should avoid such as splenda.\n. \nDo a google search for things to avoid while pregnant.
Answer . Yes, your uterus grows at approx. one cetimeter per week, but not all babies are born the some size. Plus, it can be affected by the poition of the baby, etc.
Castor oil was used to induce labour for many years by UK midwives. However, results were pretty varied. The castor oil method works by stimulating your bowel, which, in theory, should stimulate your cervix due to it's close proximity. The castor oil WILL cause diahorrea and possibly abdominal c…ramping and you must be prepared to deal with this. The best way to take castor oil is to mix it with orange juice to mask the taste. You should start with 2 tablespoons of oil in a glass of juice. You can up the dosage to around 6 tbsp safely but be aware that the more you use the more dramatic the diahorrea! As a response to the answer below, it has not been proven that walking will start labour. It may speed up labour once labour has started but it will not start labour. Labour may last from a few hours to a couple of days so it is definitely not a wise move to make yourself too tired beforehand. Answer It is a myth that castor oil starts your labour. The only medically proven "wives tale" is sex and walking. Semen has been found to have dilatory properties on the cervix (ie the cervix will dilate slightly and you may go into labour). Otherwise walking can start your labour. I know you want that baby out of there, but consider what is best for him. You will go into labour when he is ready. Be patient. ( Full Answer )
Well if you are 38 weeks and can not feel anything you should NOT try to induce labor. Your baby will come when she is ready,Castrol oil is ONLY used when you are IN LABOR to help make the birth more quick and less painfull. 38 weeks is still two weeks away from your due date, She may be late. My fi…rst was 7 days late, even with contractions and lost plug. They tell you to have sex just before to bring on more contractions but ONLY if your not diolated yet. Also if you are diolated don't get into a bath could bring infection. Hope I could help ( Full Answer )
Answer . your baby is safe from conception to delivery if you eat right well balanced meals, take your prenatal vitamins, and get moderate exercise for 30 min three times a week. See your OB doctor and he will keep you posted. Joymaker RN
yes . yes it is safe to swin when you are pregnant an its good exercise an it will help when youe having the baby it wont hurt as much .
It depends. Is it for the mother or the partner? For the mother, just avoid the abdominal region. Or just avoid it altogether---they're ugly. On the other hand, Russ can safely get one anytime he wants, but I would advise against it. Ugly. Do strongly resist putting one on the baby.
Answer . It is ok to fly, but you will have to check with the airline whether they will take you. Most airlines will not let you fly after week 35 or 36.
it is safe to ride a motercical until you are 5 months gone but the is allways a risk on a motercicel even if your not pregnant my mother was riding a motercical when she was pregnant with my brother
i am 38 weeks pregnant and lost my 'show' yesterday lunchtime. At about 10.30 last night I found I was spotting. I phoned the labour ward at hospital and they said it was normal. So yes, its normal.. However I would advise you to GET CHECKED OUT. Just to be on the safe side.. Good luck!
hi, my waters started leaking at 24 weeks, i was kept in hospital for 3/4 days and it stopped. i was given antibiotics to fight infection and steroid injections to strengthen my little boys lungs. i am now almost 2 weeks on and no baby but yet he has a very strong heartbeat and he kicks me almost al…l day long. i am still being monitered weekly but as long as my baby is safe there is no need for me to deliver him yet. But i do understand every case is not the same, you just got to rest up and take the doctors advice and take it as easy as possible. ( Full Answer )
Congratulations on your pregnancy.. Don't use castor oil to try and induce labor as the side effects are not worth it, plus there isn't any actual proof that is will work.. If you are looking for safe and effective, painless way to induce labor at home then maternity acupressure may be for you.. …Check out this website, http://yourmaternityresource.com/category/maternityacupreesure/. I bought the book, only $29 and it worked great, well worth the cost of the book.. I was 41 weeks along, the best part it actually helped reduce the pain of labor and it was well worth the cost of the book to finally meet my beautiful baby boy. I would suggest that you check with your OB/GYN before trying to induce labor at only 39 weeks though. ( Full Answer )
\nI will avoid answering the question by saying that the reason why physicians use caution when prescribing nitrofurantoin for use in pregnant women at term is because of the possibility of affecting the newborn's bilirubin and hemoglobin levels. Bilirubin is a break-down product of hemoglobin, the… molecule that carries oxygen in the blood. Bilirubin levels rise in newborns after birth. This is normal and reflects the destruction of fetal hemoglobin, which gets replaced by adult hemoglobin during the first few weeks of life. If the bilirubin levels rise high enough, the baby will be have a yellow hue to his skin. This is called physiologic jaundice of the newborn. It is both common and harmless. If the bilirubin levels are too high (rare), however, brain damage can occur.\n. \nNitrofurantoin crosses the placenta and may accelerate the process destroying fetal hemoglobin in the newborn. This may cause the bilirubin levels to rise too high or the level of hemoglobin to fall too low. This potential is greatest when the nitrofurantoin level in the newborn's blood is high _and_ the baby is born at that time. Since nitrofurantoin (instant release form) leaves the mother's blood quickly (approximately 50% every 20 minutes), very little medication is left in the blood after 2 hours for transfer into the placenta. I have no information on how quickly nitrofurantoin is cleared from the newborn's blood, but, very rapid clearance into the amniotic fluid (where the baby may re-ingest it, however) and/or back into the mother's blood is probably what occurs. Thus, there is probably a small window of time during which the risk of nitrofurantoin use for the newborn is greatest (for example, administering the medication late in labor). \n. \nA quick search on pubmed.gov yielded only 1 case report on this topic: Bruel H, et al. "Hemolytic anemia in a newborn after maternal treatment with nitrofurantoin at the end of pregnancy" Arch Pediatr. 2000 Jul;7(7):745-7. The article is in French, but this doesn't matter to me since I can't access the article anyhow. The abstract only states that the mother too the medication "in the last month of pregnancy," which is less than helpful.\n. \nIn summary, I have no idea if the medication is safe or not, but I strongly suspect it would be hard to cause any real harm to a newborn with this medication under normal circumstances (eg, the mother has functional kidneys). It probably will cause _some_ measurable change in fetal hemoglobin/bilirubin levels, however, whether or not this _actually_ matters is the real question. This is probably why physicians prescribe this medication even late in pregnancy. ( Full Answer )
Generally yes. You must listen to your body and stop when you get tired. Do not over exert yourself as you need your energy at this point in your pregnancy. Excessive exercise may put you into labour which is generally safe after 37 weeks. This is, of course, assuming a normal health pregnancy. To b…e sure, you should check with your doctor or midwife who knows your personal history. ( Full Answer )
If by sick, you mean nauseated ... it'll get worse. But Dizzy is something to see your OB man about, could be dehydration, or together they might be flu. Don't ignore it.
The baby's movement slows down because he/she is getting bigger and has less room to really move freely around anymore.
Yes....babies born between 34-37 weeks generally do fine if there are no other health problems. They may need to go to special baby care unit for stay as sometimes they may have a few shot-term health issues, but they usually do as well as full term babies.
Possibly, but you might just be having a large baby or have more amniotic fluid than usual. Or the measurements might not have been accurate
Talk to your Dr. to get the go-ahead and have a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) do the treatment. Otherwise No.
Yes it is, you can go on water slides for up to 10 weeks in your pregnancy.
\nIt is important that you always check with your doctor first. If you haven't been running throughout your pregnancy you shouldn't start now, however if you have been running all along it should be safe--but check with your doctor first so s/he can make sure your health is ok. If you do run, make s…ure you stop if you have any pain. A good alternative is swimming, walking or bike riding. ( Full Answer )
It can't be. You would feel the baby moving and you would have a noticeable bump.
Maybe you are anaemic. Talk to your doctor or midwife about it next time you see them. Have a lie down and drink some water. Take it easy, basically
braxton and hicks contractions are usually to blame. I would make an apptmt with my obgyn, though, to ere on the side of caution. Take care T. Hawk
yes it is. You can't say 'yes' unconditionally. It is best to consult a doctor before getting pregnant at a slightly advanced age. Every woman's body is different. Yours is most likely fine, but do get personal advice.
Just give it 18 more days if nothing happens you should go to the doctor and if the doctor says just wait have laxitives it really helps and also having lots of green tea. or eat curry and have sex I've heard its ment to wrk really well Disregard all of the above. At best it won't do you any good,… at worse it can cause serious complications. I know what could be done, but you don't need to do it. Go, as soon as possible, to a good Ob/Gyn clinic and get them to tell you if (A) you should be helped to deliver now, or (B) why you should not do so. (Daddy of 8) ( Full Answer )
i am and always have been that why they want you to take prenatel pill to boost your levels you should be ok just intake this with iron after i had my son the came taking my blood cuz it was low just make sure they know that you are enema
If you are around 8-9 months pregnant, your water may break and you wouldn't realize it, so swimming whilst pregnant isn't the best idea.
You get stretchmarks because the skin is streched out a lot under a short period of time. After the baby's born there's no reason to stretch it out. So no, you wont.
Sure it is! The water provides bouyancy which supports you and makes it a very safe exercise to do while pregnant!! Swimming in itself is a low-impact exercise, meaning it is easier on the joints as well as your whole body.
It's probably just the muscles tighten when you cough. Same thing happens when you aren't pregnant but then you don't have a baby in there taken up space. Go to the doctor and ask what cough medicine you can use.
relax and let nature take its course,38 weeks is not to early to go into labor
Hi! First Congratulations on making it this far. For each woman the signs of labor can be different. But no matter what stage in your pregnancy, there are some common signs to look for that can signal labor has started or is impending. However, none of these can say just when you will go into labor!… Bloody show/ Loss of mucus plug Water breaking Contractions that are stronger, last longer, and rhythmic Sometimes loose stools or diarrhea Small amount of weight loss (some women will lose 3-5 pounds of water weight) Over all flu like symptoms The 'nesting' instinct: sudden urge to clean with a burst of energy.. Baby engaging in the birth canal/increased pressure As I mentioned before, it's different for every woman. Some have all of these symptoms and some don't have any at all. If you are concerned about going into labor or that you might be in labor call your local hospital and speak with Labor and Delivery or contact your OB/GYN, or midwife. They are the best judge on what you might be feeling and experiencing! Good luck! ( Full Answer )
A pregnancy is 40 weeks and no one knows when they will go into labor. It can happen fast or slow.
Not much. Most damage to the baby has already been done. It is likely to beborn underweight, and will probably lag behind the developmentcurve for at least the first year.
Likely expected backache associated with carrying your child to term. Try conservative measures like heat packs, positional changes. Delivery likely curative.
Your baby is approximately 15 inches and about 2-3 pounds! your babies eyes are partially open now and can blink! His eyes also have color now!!!
Its very common during pregnancy for a woman to get a bladder or UTI (urinal track infection) Tell you doctor as soon as possible! it can spread to be a kidney infection and they can be deadly.
I've tried it all... my #1 recommendation is walking. Lots of walking! Castor oil only messes you up, sex can soften the cervix, but walking helps everything right along :)
This is a very situational issue. I would ask your doctor first because he/she would know the specific circumstances of your pregnancy. Swimming, way out in the ocean, I don't know that I would recommend. Standing out there in the water would be fine. But if you are on a rocky beach and the waves co…uld possibly sweep you under, or throw you against the rocks I wouldn't get too far out in the ocean. If you are on a solid sand ocean, no rocks at all and CAN swim then you should be okay. But most doctors wouldn't advise you even traveling this far in to your pregnancy so make sure you have cleared this with your doctor as well. ( Full Answer )
It could be false labour other wise known as braxton hicks contractions or you could possibly be dealing with the real thing. If you have 4 or more of these pains in an hour, have any type of unusual vaginal discharge, have lower back pain, increased pelvic pressure, or notice the cramps get more fr…equent, rhythmic, or painful. Call your dr immediately as these could be signs of actual labor. ( Full Answer )
im not sure it is complete safe but i dont see why its a problem
Yes swimming is excellent when pregnant and a exercise you can do all through the pregnancy. It wont harm you or the baby in any way.
Don't risk your health and the health of a baby on stuff you got off the internet ! People who don't know what they're talking about will tell you all kinds of things. Don't listen to it. A real doctor is the only place you can get an answer that you can trust.
unless you are having a problem pregnancy and have been advised to the contary it should be okay to mow the grass as long as you take care e.g. take a few rest breaks if you have a large area to mow, don't attempt it at the hottest time of day, stop if you feel tired or ill dont over exert yourself.… ( Full Answer )
For almost any pregnant woman the most visible symptom on the 38th week of pregnancy is the grown stomach. By the 38th week of pregnancy most women have quite a big stomach which also can be seen on the way the walk.
