What does it mean if a woman measures 29 weeks when she is only 27 weeks pregnant?
"Measuring 29 weeks" implies that the patient measures 29 centimeters, or roughly 9 centimeters above the umbilicus (belly button). Measurements can be off by a few centimeters without any cause for concern--2 cm off would not prompt most physicians to change any treatment plan. The concern becomes if the patient is measuring a large number off; this can mean the baby is either very large or very small (depending if the number is higher or lower than expected), which could prompt the physician to order an ultrasound to give a better estimate of how large the baby is. Where I practice, most insurance companies will not pay for an ultrasound with the diagnosis of LGA (large for gestational age, meaning a much larger measurement than expected) unless the patient is measuring at least three centimeters more than expected.
The measurement also needs to be considered in the context of the whole patient; if the patient's diabetes screen was negative (diabetes can lead to larger babies) and there are no other concerns during the pregnancy, an isolated measurement that is somewhat more than expected doesn't mean as much as it would in a higher risk pregnancy.
Also keep in mind that measuring is somewhat user-dependent; not all physicians measure the same way, so what is 29 weeks to one may be 27 to another.
Don't forget of course that 29 weeks pregnant is actually 27 weeks from conception.
The measurement is made from the top of the pubic bone (more or less the bikini line) to the top of the uterus, and is most accurate when done each time by the same person as each person may do it a little differently.
It is the trend which is most important as a big baby will be big all along and a small baby is small all along, a sudden change in size is more important.
Not necessarally, this could mean that she has had a child and is still nursing or previously had a miscarriage or stillborn. A woman can produce milk for as long as she is nursing a child even if it is only once or twice a day. If you think a woman is pregnant because she is producing milk then she would be between 13 - 26 weeks which doesn't mean that she is going to…
Well that could mean a multiple of things If you are a woman, it could mean that you're pregnant or for either genders, it could mean you want to get pregnant, know someone who is pregnant, or you just have a fetish for pregnant women in your dreams... (just kidding) My advice, Get to know your woman friends better, talk to them and see if they're thinking about having a baby... and if you are…
If the stomach of a woman has bulged but the woman is not pregnant is it necessary or compulsory she would be pregnant some 2-3 years ago by 2-3 months and then aborted the baby?
No it doesn't. During pregnancy a woman has a increase in vaginal discharge, not a absence in it. ++++ Well, yes, it could be. After my period, around my ovulation time, I had very little discharge (if anything). I believe it was because the egg took and became fertilized. I am now 1 week pregnant, and still have very little discharge. Everyone is different.
No typically the heart does not start beating until 6 weeks, but the way pregnancy is measured at "2 weeks pregnant" you aren't even pregnant yet, since most women ovulate 2 weeks after the first day of their last menstrual cycle. That would be when you are two weeks pregnant when you are just ovulating. So if you mean can you hear the heartbeat two weeks after you find out your are pregnant then yes…
A qualitative hCG test detects if hCG is present in the blood. The result is either positive or negative. You have had a quantitative hCG test (or beta hCG) which measures the amount of hCG actually present in the blood. A beta hCG level of 21,941mIU/ml means you are over six weeks pregnant or if you know you are less than 6 weeks, pregnant there is more than one embryo.
