Recent Question

(M2.OB.90) A 41-year-old G1P0 woman arrives for an initial prenatal visit at 8 weeks gestation dated by last menstrual period. This was an unexpected pregnancy, so she is concerned about drinking her usual glass of wine every evening as well as her advanced age. Her past medical history is significant only for an unrepaired ventricular septal defect that results in cyanosis with moderate exertion. She also reports that she and the father have relatives with cystic fibrosis. What in this patient's presentation would prompt you to advise her to electively terminate the pregnancy?
