Second Trimester

Membrane Fusion

Jane Foley's picture


Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hello, I would appreciate your advice, I had a 17 week ultrasound to have an amniocentesis done but the doctor couldn't do it as he said the "membranes had not fused yet" he did not explain anything.

Is this unusually late for them to fuse? i.e. I wondered if this could indicate a problem. I don't know how common this is. Thank you

Hello, my name is Gidget, I'm from Hastings-on-Hudson, NY and I'm having my baby boy on July 8th, 2009 and I'm so excited. I am new to this website, but I love it so far. I did join it so I can meet new people and make some friends since I really don't have any. You know, and what better friends to make then other mothers to be? Maybe we could help each other, or someone can help me, since I'm 20 years old, this is my first child that I'm having and I'm honestly very nervous. But what do you expect.

2 before 20

So my first pregnancy was when i was 15 years old and it was during my sophomore year of high school. not really my fault or anything, just put myself in a bad situation but hey couldn't change the past. but i found out my child was gonna be a boy and i was happy. when i was 16 i had him. he was due may 1st but he came 2 wks and 4 days early. it was apr. 13th 2007. he was 7lbs 6 oz and 20.5 in. long. i named him trentyn xavier. his labor/delivery was really easy, only about 5 and a half hours long and with no pain meds and vaginal, with an episiotomy. i gained about 45 pounds with it.

Tummy measuring bigger than normal

I went in for my 24 week check up last week and when my ob/gyn measured my tummy it measured in at 29 weeks. This is my second pregancy and my first pregnancy was naturally conceived faternal twins. I have had five ultrasounds and they all show one baby at normal size, but it has been feeling like twins since my fourth month. However, I've never been pregnant with just one so I don't know if what I am feeling is normal for one.
