What is a "Wet Reading?"

Jane Foley's picture


Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I was just wondering what a "wet read" is during a prenatal ultrasound? I am going to be having another ultrasound in 2 weeks to check size and date, as my son is measuring almost 4 weeks large and no possible miscalculation of dates, but they have also requested a wet read and I can find no information on it. Any help would be appreciated.


Will Snoring Affect the Baby?

Dear Midwife,
My wife is 36-weeks pregnant. She generally snores at a medium sound level while sleeping. I haven't told her yet thinking it might hurt her feelings. Her snoring absolutely does not disturb me.

My concern is regarding the unborn baby. Will the noise disturb the baby in any way, say health wise, mental development, his hearing capacity or otherwise?
