QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I'm 31 weeks pregnancy. My weight and blood pressure are fine.

Of late I have started feeling tingling and numbness in my middle three fingers of my right hand. I was asked to get a neurology opinion in which they have found decreased sensory and motor conduction along the supply of the median nerve.

I'm worried. Can you tell me the treatment for this?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
This is my first pregnancy, I am 36 weeks pregnant. During the ultrasound iat 32 weeks it was detected that the fetal abdominal circumference was towards lower side but my ob/gyn said that it was above 10th percentile so not to be tense but to keep a track on growth I should repeat a scan after 3 weeks.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am 35 weeks pregnant. I am not a high risk pregnancy and have not had any bleeding or heavy discharge.

I am having abdominal pain moderate to severe on the right side which seems to subside when I lay down on my left side. I can not lay on my right side without severe pain returning. It seems to feel like a tearing pain then begins to cramp. I also feel stabs of this pain when I am standing up or sitting up. This pain came on suddenly and is going on 24 hours.

Could there be something wrong that is not associated with the pregnancy?
