Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
It is normal to feel anxious prior to giving birth.
I would recommend speaking to your doctor regarding seeking therapy prior to the delivery so you can be as calm as possible during the delivery
The best method for giving birth is in the hospital with nurses and doctors nearby.
I would recommend an epidural and possible a morphine pump at bedside for pain. The anesthesiologist at the hospital will discuss what's best for you.
Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
It might be a good option depending on the status of your current pregnancy and how the baby progresses during labor. I would bring it up to your doctor at your next visit to get his/her opinion.
It is very important to drink at least 64-100oz of water daily.
Limit caffeine, juice or energy drink intake.
I would ask your doctor to prescribe something for the nausea to allow to increase your fluid intake
I see. That is usually pretty effective. It might not hurt to try an alternative at this point.
How about doxylamine?
I can confidently say that there's almost nothing left for you to try. I feel bad saying that but you really have tried them all!
I would agree. Zofran tends to work best for most of my patients.
Please don't forget to leave a rating, thanks!
Is there anything else I can help you with?
