Can a steroid shot make you go into labor?
The steriod shot was only a preventative measure for the baby - it was to help boost the baby's lungs in case of a premature birth. The shot isn't any good after a few days and there will be no traces of this in the mother or the baby. If she goes into premature labor again - she will get another one. I have given birth to four children - all of which I was complete bedrest and took oral medications to stop and prevent early labor. With my first, my water broke at 33 weeks and thanks to the sterioid shots she lived. The other three were full term babies despite the shots. good luck to your friend
I am 33 weeks pregnant having diarrhea, lower back pain, and nausea?
So i went to the hospital yesterday and they checked me and gave me fluids to rehydrate, when the nurse checked me she was like oh my... and then said never mind. I said what? and she said that the babies head is so low that she thought i was going to be 5 cm dilated but i was thick and closed. So just to stay off of my feet and do whatever i can to keep the baby in as long as possible but that if i feel ANYTHING at all to come back cause he is so low. So all day today i have done nothing but sit on my butt and drink water and nap. I have so much pressure and no contractions. i reached up to see if i could feel my cervix and it is right at the opening of my vagina and i can get a finger tip in. should i go get checked again considering that yesterday she said i was thick and closed? This is my third baby in a little over 3 years i should know what i am doing by now i would think! not so much
Green and clear discharge at 33 weeks pregnant?
It is probabaly your mucous plug. During pregnancy, your cervix secretes mucous which forms a thick mucous plug. This plug forms on the cervix and it’s purpose is to prevent any bacteria getting into the uterus – like an added layer of protection for your baby. The mucous plug (medical term is operculum, i.e. plug in opening) is usually is cloudy or clear in colour, thick and sticky – some women describe it looking like a glob of semen or ‘snot’ or a mix of both! When your cervix begins to thin and dilate at the end of your pregnancy, there may be some slight blood loss due to small capilaries breaking from the movement. The blood then gets caught up in the mucous and this is why it’s also called ‘a bloody show’ as the mucous becomes blood stained. During the last couple of weeks of pregnancy or up until labour itself, the plug will start to come away so the baby can pass through the cervix. Some women do not even notice their plug expelling as there is already an increase in normal cervical mucous due to hormones. The mucous plug often comes away like a continuous stringy discharge – sometimes it can actually resemble a plug. Some women do not see their mucous plug until well into labour
33 weeks... Possible signs of early labor?
I am 33 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and lately I have been having severe pressure which I know is very common in this stage, but like I said its severe. when I urinate I feel the urge to push even well after im done and over the past few days we have noticed I had dropped, my belly was sitting mid-belly now the top is at my belly button, and when she moves I can feel her on my hips. My braxton Hicks are very intense and have severe pressure with them also..sorry if its all TMI but I dont know if im just beeing paranoid or maybe things could be starting. I go to the OB-GYN on Thursday so I'll talk to him then but thought I would get other opinions in the mean time..Thanks in advance..
33 weeks pregnant how much more to go?
If you are confused, you're not alone. While some people talk about pregnancy being 9 months long (divided into three trimesters), most health care providers refer to pregnancy as being 40 weeks long, starting with your last known menstrual period (LMP). A normal pregnancy lasts 280 days from your LMP which is about 266 days from conception to birth. The first two weeks of your pregnancy includes the time of your period, ovulation and fertilization. Conception occurs approximately 14 - 16 days after the first day of your period. Your Estimated Due Date: Tuesday, July 10, 2007 Estimated Conception: Tuesday, October 17, 2006 You are: 33 weeks pregnant. About 7 weeks remaining. http://baby2see.com/development/index.html Good luck
33 weeks pregnant, losing my mucus plug, fingertip dilated, no contractions, will i go into labor soon?
It really depends on how much of the mucus plug you lost. You can be dialated from weeks 30 and 32 and stil make it to week 37. If you lost just a little bit...dont worry about it. If it was all of it, it can be within the next week or two. You may wanna try bedrest if this is your situation, and avoid activities, such as walking and cleaning, in order to keep the chances of contractions lower. Let the hubby/bf do the house work....They are all good for sumthin...lol. Just kiddin ;) Good luck and know that if you are to go into labor early, your baby's chances of survival are like 95%, so your little one should be fine either way, but still want a healthy baby.
How many months is 34 weeks pregnant?
As much as people are dismissing this question as obvious, it's actually more complicated -- or at least ambiguous.1. What do you want to mean by saying that you're, say, two months pregnant? I feel like that should reflect "I got pregnant two months ago." However, one could also count from the start of your last period, which is how the number of weeks counts.2. How many weeks are in a month? A lot of people say 4, but this isn't true. An average month has 4.35 weeks (365 days / 12 months per year / 7 days per week.With those two definitions agreed upon, this will compute the number of months: # months = (# weeks - 2) / 4.35.Therefore, 34 weeks is 7.36 months pregnant. A different set of assumption could also lead to different answers, such as:7.8 months (if pregnancy starts from the start of the last cycle and there are 4.35 weeks per month)8.5 months (if pregnancy starts from the start of the last cycle and there are 4 weeks per month)8 months (if pregnancy starts from conception and there are 4 weeks per month)Some people might even add a month to each of those, as they might not distinguish between "in the 8th month" and "8 months pregnant".Again, it's really a matter of definitions. The 7.36 answer corresponds most directly to how months since you got pregnant, which is logical to me. Some of the others lead to weird things, like saying you're 10 months pregnant on your due date.
Why am I cramping at 33 weeks pregnant?
Cramping is normal almost through out pregnancy , especially if you are carring twins .The uterus being a muscle when you carry out some activities ,like sex,or carry too heavy objects, or a full bladder, you can have cramps.A urinary track infection as well can cause your uterus to contract and cause you a lot of cramps.If you have had or have uterine fibriods , you may experience a lot of cramps as well.But at this stage of your pregnancy you maybe having the famous braxton hicks contractions .They are most common at night and you may think you are in labour but you are not. They will disappear if you maybe change positions in bed , take a walk or drink a lot of water/fluids may help.If at 32 weeks your baby has not yet assume its birth position, that is, head facing down and its trying to do it now at 33 weeks it will cause you a lot of pains and cramps. My first baby turned at 34 weeks , it was terrible. I had a lot of cramps and pains because he was already too big to turn .I used music to make him turn because the Dr told me to prepare for a c -section already , that my baby is late settling into position with face down in preparation for delivery.Cramping that should worry you :Bleeding , or just a pink discharge is never a good sign .5 or 6 contractions within an hour should be a call for concern this could be a sign of preterm labour.Abdominal pains as well can be a sign of concern . If your cramping should continue its better you see a Dr.
I am 33 weeks and dialated fingertip length and effaced 50% what does this mean?
All it means is that your cervix is starting to efface and dilate a little bit. Your cervix can take weeks to fully efface and dilate. All you need to do is make sure that your bags are packed and that you're familiar with the signs of labor and call your doctor for any questions regarding your symptoms. Then it's a waiting game. Effacement in itself is not a predictor of when labor is coming. All it means is that you are getting ready for labor.
