How long can baby live in womb after water breaks?

It depends on may things, if you have a high leak the membranes may seal and the pregnancy can continue. If your membranes are ruptured after 12 hours there is a fear of infection setting in, dangerous to both the baby and mother - you must be closely monitored for fever, pain and fetal distress. Another thing doctors look at is the cause of premature rupture as an infection is sometimes the cause, in that case antibiotics will be given and you may need to be induced or delivered by Cesarian Section to prevent further complications.

Can a positive and a negative have children together?

There is not enough information in the question to directly answer it.

If the question meant to say "Can two people with RH+ and RH- blood type have children?" the answer is twofold...

If the mother is RH+ and the father is RH-, there will be no problem.

If, however, the mother is RH- and the father is RH+, then the mother's body will attempt to reject the fetus. This is often not a problem for the first child, but it is a life threatening problem for the second and subsequent child, because the mother's body remembers the "foreign organism", and is better prepared to fight it the second time.

If the doctors know about the RH incompatibility in advance, then they can often treat the mother to help reduce the chance of problem.

How can you make yourself smaller if you are 14 and 5' 9'' and you want to be 5' 5''?

The only thing that can be done is to surgically remove four inches from each one of your legs. You don't want to do that. Being 5'9" isn't so bad.

AnswerMy daughter could have written the above answer.

She was 5'9 at 14 and hasn't grown much more. she is now 18 and 5'10.

When she was 14 she was the tallest in her class. Now some of the girls and most of the boys have caught her up.

She loves being tall. Her main problem is finding trousers to fit her 36" legs. I wish I had such a problem.

^^ Why on earth would you want to be smaller when you are 5'9"?! I understand that being so tall might get you unwanted attention or bullying, but I'm 5'2" and would literally kill to to be a couple of inches taller!! I wouldn't be so drastic if i were you. Being tall can really help you out sometimes you know. Spot a tastey looking cheesecake on that top shelf? Can't reach it if yer 5'2"! Think about THAT!! lol. Rant over.

What are the chances of complications during pregnancy if mother has B negative blood group?

Complications arise in pregnancy when the mother is Rh negative and her partner is Rh positive. If he is Rh negative there will be no complications from Rh incompatibility (hemolytic disease).

While the mother's and baby's blood systems are separate there are times when the blood from the baby can enter into the mother's system. If the baby is Rh positive the mother will react by making antibodies to the Rh factor, when this happens the mother is said to be sensitized. Once the mother is sensitized she will always have antibodies, these antibodies will then attack an Rh positive baby's blood, causing it to break down the red blood cells and anemia will develop. In severe cases the baby may need a blood transfusion at birth to replace the damaged cells.

The best treatment for hemolytic disease is prevention, your doctor will most likely order an injection of Rh immunoglobulin (RhIg), to be given at around 28 weeks.

Once the baby is born a blood test will determine if he is Rh positive or negative. If the baby is Rh negative nothing further is needed, if he is Rh positive you will be given another injection of RhIg to protect any future pregnancies. Each pregnancy and delivery of an Rh positive baby will require repeat doses of RhIg.

You should also receive RhIg following a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or induced abortion to prevent any chance of developing antibodies.

Should you get pregnant again in a high risk situation?

The doctor will give advice case by case. Everyone is different and have to follow their own head on this one. If you desperatly want children you might be ready to take the risk but if you already have children at home, leaving them would feel unfair.

Can you hold someone's uterus if they are bleeding during childbirth?

No the uterus is lodged in the pelvis - even during childbirth - the exception being after a cesarian section - the doctor may pull the uterus out during the repair after birth. If bleeding should occur massaging the uterus may help slow the bleeding.

In the recovery room following delivery a woman may need a fundal massage to stop bleeding, this is done by firming rubbing the woman's lower abdomen at the top of the uterus.

Are there are problems with pregnancy's that can result in death of the mother that are detected on the first scan?

Usually the conditions that can kill the mother is not from the fetus but continuing the pregnancy leads to her not getting the treatment for something she has will kill her so therefor an abortion is necessary. A pregnant woman should be offered a dating scan when she is 10-13 weeks and 6 days pregnant. You can see a ectopic pregnancy but they have usually already been revealed due to pain and fever by then. An ectopic pregnancy will kill the mother if not aborted.
