QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I'm a bit concerned because my physician forgot to make me my appointment. to come in and do the testing for Down Syndrome (via a blood test, if I recall correctly) and now he says its past the time frame I can do so.

I am 26 weeks and did have my normal 20 week / second ultrasound done and they said everything looked good, no abnormalities, etc. However, I can't stop thinking that I should have had the blood test as well just to clear the air.

Possible Genital Warts during Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I had a prenatal exam today where my doctor did a Group B Strep culture and told me that I had what looked like genital warts to her but that there was only one there.

As far as I know, it hasn't there when I've gone for PAP smears and this is the first time it was noticed. The last time she had me in for a PAP smear was way back in like February or March.

She asked me if I've noticed it or if my boyfriend has noticed it and neither one of us have. If either of us had noticed it, one of us would have said something.

Scared and confused...
