Laying on your back while pregnant.?
Q: So…..went for my non stress test yesterday and ended up in labor and delivery for observation several hours later. Here is what happened….I went in they first did a ultrasound….I asked them if I could please lay on my side because I start blacking out if on my back..(found this out during ultrasound 2 months ago) and they let me do that. Next I went to do the non stress test ( where they put belts around your belly to monitor the baby (babies in my case) heartbeats and contractions). I asked the nurse if I can please be put on my side for this and she said first lets put the bands on you and see if we can pick up heartbeat then we can move u more to your side. So I was not even slightly reclined in the chair when I felt it coming. My hearing went, my vision went out, my blood pressure plumeth and the babies heartbeats dropped as well. Next thing I know their are nurses everywhere oxgen tanks, fans…everything. I finally became stable as well as the babies and they then kept me on the machine for 1 hour or more to ensure the babies where stable. Well the little girl was not moving as much as her bro on the heart monitor so they became considered. They ended up running more test and sending me to the hospital for overnight observation. I was at the hospital for 6 hours when they realized everything was good with both babies and i and discharged me. Ok long story I know but, it was crazy………Here is the question? Has anyone had something similar happen to them…with the whole blacking out thing? What will they do when I have my c-section? if i can not be put on my back with out this happening?
A: As a Labor and Delivery RN for 12 years and having had 3 C-sections of my own, I will say this…..you will be wedged on your side on the OR table. You will feel like you are falling off, but a strap will keep you secure. The wedge is slight and is usually under your left side, to tile the uterus off of the vena cava. There is no need for general anesthesia with anything but the most emergent C-section….otherwise, you run the risk of your babies needing major resucitation at birth and your recovery will be impeded, as well. It wouldn’t matter if you were under general or not, if you’re lying on that blood vessel, it’s slowing the blood return and a general anesthetic won’t stop that from happening. Hang in there and best wishes!
2 questions. 1.) What position is your baby in when they give him/her immunizations? 2.) Pain management use?
Q: 1.) I came across an article today on Bump.com (http://pregnant.thebump.com/new-mom-new-dad/baby-basics/articles/vaccinations-what-baby-will-need.aspx ) and the picture of the baby being injected is on his/her stomach. All of my daughter’s immunizations have been given while she was lying on her back on the exam table. I think it might have been easier on her if they had given me the opportunity to lay her on her stomach because she wouldn’t see what was happening. BTW, I tried to have her given the shots while my she was nursing but the nurse told me that the office policy was that the baby had to be on the exam table, for safety reasons. (That was just one more thing that really turned me off to that doctor.) My daughter is on an alternative immunization schedule so she only received the 4 main infant vaccines thus far. I chose to do only 2 at a time so maybe the nurse thought since it was only 2 it would be easiest to just have her laying on her back, I don’t know. My daughter is now 15 months old and I have since changed Peds (for numerous reasons) however she hasn’t had any more shots since we switched so I don’t know if this new office does it the same way and I haven’t thought to ask yet. So what position does your Ped/nurse put your baby in when they give the immunizations? On tummy? On back? Seated? Do they allow you to nurse during the shot or only afterward? 2.) Also, have you ever used any pain management techniques? I know there is a cream called EMLA (http://www.drugs.com/pro/emla.html ) which is basically Lidocaine and another topical that numbs the area where the shot will be given. I haven’t used it yet but I am considering it. Has anyone else used this or another method for pain management for their child? I know it can also be used before a circumcism so the newborn doesn’t feel the pain of the cutting.Thanks in advance for your answers!Yes, Avary’s a little toughie too. She screams when they first do the injection but I pick her right up and she’s fine. I just don’t want her associating the doctor’s office with all negative thoughts. I know even pets that get shots at the vet get so worked up and scared when they know they are going to the vet. My cat starts meowing so loud as soon as we get to the door. He knows what’s coming. EVen if it’s not a shot visit, he freaks out. I just don’t want Avary to have that anxiety whenever we have to go to the ped. Thanks for all the great answers!
A: 1. Our children have all received their shots (as infants) laying on their backs on the exam table or being held in a cradling position by my husband or myself.I understand that some doctors do permit the baby nursing while receiving the shots, but many do not as a safety precaution. They can request that the child not be fed atleast 1-2 hours prior to coming in to get the shots to reduce the chance of aspiration (A infant patient may aspirate for example by accidentally drawing material from the stomach into the lungs due to crying). Understandibly you want to have her as calm and comfortable as possible prior to the shot but aspiration is definitely something to avoid. Nursing her immediately after the shot to help her calm down is a safer approach. She will know that mommy is right there to help her & will probably forget about the shot as soon as she feeds.2. As for pain meds we have always used either infants Tylenol and/or Ibuprofen, depending on age. Here in the states you have to get lidocaine with a prescription so we order ours from Canada where it is OTC. I have never used it for the vaccinations but may now that you mention it 🙂
Baby name game.. ( A lot of Details!) Number 2!?
Q: 1.)Your 13 years old. Your mother,Cindy Jane Montreal, and your father, Russel Gene Carver, have just gotten a divorce. You feel lonely and you are terribly upset. You cannot be alone anymore so you rush over to your boyfriend, Dillon Raymond Ceverren’s house. You two end up making love. 3 weeks after this happens, you start to throw up in the morning. You freak out because you may be pregnant. You call Dillon and he takes you to the store to get a pregnancy test. (Dillon is 15) You go into the bathroom and take the test. The test says positive. You are very upset. Dillon suggests its a faulty one and that he could take you to the doctor to get a test done. He takes you in and they check. You are pregnant. You have never been more upset in your life. How will you tell your parents? They would be soooo upset. Dillon takes you home. You tell your mother, because your father has already moved out. She slaps you right across your face and calls you names that no mother should ever call their children. She makes you pack some of your stuff, and she kicks you out. She tells your father and he says he is not going to deal with you. Dillons parents understood. They were not angry. You stay at his house through your whole pregnancy. You call his parents mom and dad. Since you are very skinny, the baby will be small as the doctors tell you. They say there is barely any room in there! You give birth a week before you are due. Dillon and his mother are with you when you delive. You deliver normally.The delivery has taken a toll on your body. You are tired and run down. The baby is a beautiful little girl. She looks like you and Dillon and soo many ways. She has Dillons light blonde hair, and you deep blue eyes. She weighs in at 4 pounds 9 oz. What will you name her?2.) You are 17 and Dillon is 19. You live with him in his 2 bedroom apartment. Your mother barely speaks to you. Dillon has his high school deploma and is taking online college to become a Mechanic. You are still attending high school and getting straight A’s. You and Dillon decide you are going to have a romantic night together. Well the condom slips. You bet that you are going to get pregnant again, and you are right, You find out 2 weeks later that you are pregnant. 4 months into the pregnancy, the doctor finds another baby! You are expecting twins! You and Dillon are the happiest! At 6 months along, you are put on bed rest. You will be missing the next 4 months of school. You know you will have to take your Senior year over again and you are not happy. Your bed rest was very boring. You could barley even ever get up without Dillon yelling at you to lay down again. You know its for the best. Now your 9 months pregnant and 2 weeks over your due date. They decide that the babies cannot stay in there much longer so they induce you. You are in labor for 23 hours before you give birth. You deliver vaginally. The twins are two little girls. They look almost exactly alike. They both have light brown hair and light blue eyes. One of then is 5 pounds 13 oz and the other is 6 pounds 1 oz. What do you name them?3.) Your now 22. Dillon is 24. Your first born little girl is 8 years old and your twin girls are 5 years old. You and Dillon plan on having one more. You and Dillon go away on a vacation to Las Vegas and you come back pregnant. You are sooo happy, and you say this is the last one. When you are 5 months pregnant, the doctor spots two other babies. He says that they are too small since he just noticed them and they most likely will be stillborn. At your 8 months check up, the doctor finds that one of the little babies has died. It was too small The doctor said by the looks of it, the only one that will survive is the baby that we first noticed through all of this and the other one will die. You give birth at 9 months, almost a week before you are do. The doctors say that you should deliver vaginally because the other little baby wouldnt survive even if they did a C-section. You sadfully agree. The first baby that comes out is the main baby, that you have noticed throughout the whole pregnancy. Its a boy! He weighs 7 pounds 1 oz. The second one that comes out is the still born that died at 8 months in the womb. It was a boy. He only weighed 1 pound 1 oz. The 3rd baby was a little girl. She only weighed 1 pound 2 oz. She died 2 hours after birth. What would you name those 3? The one that survived has dark blonde hair, almost brown. You were satisfied with him, because he is the one that you felt kick through the whole pregnancy.4.) It’s been 4 years. Your now 26 and Dillon is 28. He is now a mechanic. You first born girl is 12, your twins girls are 9, and your little boy is 4. You decide that you want to adopt from a mother who is pregnant with twins. She is Korea. When she is 8 months pregnant, you fly down to Korea with all the children and stay with her until the twins are born. 3 weeks later, she gives birth to a Boy and a Girl. The little boy
