My Pregnant Body - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 28 - OB Visits and Fetal Monitors

Starting next week, you will probably visit your OB more frequently as he or she keeps a closer eye on your progress in case you go into early labor.

Although your baby could survive if born today, the longer he or she stays inside you, the better. Be aware of the warning signs of preterm labor, including menstrual-like cramps; a low, dull backache; pelvic pressure; abdominal cramping; increase or change in vaginal discharge; and uterine contractions every 10 minutes or more. If you notice any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately.

If you were tested for Rh factor earlier in your pregnancy and you don't have it (are Rh negative) but your baby does (is Rh positive), your doctor will probably give you a vaccine called Rh immune globulin this week and again after you deliver. This will help prevent potential health risks your baby faces, such as jaundice and anemia.
