Electrophysiology of Fetal Arrhythmia (fMCG)
Fetal research and clinical practice has been hampered by a lack of suitable investigational techniques. Currently, ultrasound is the only widely used method of studying fetal anatomy and physiology, but it has significant limitations for assessment of cardiac rhythm. The proposed study will allow the investigators to evaluate fetal magnetocardiography (fMCG) as a new tool for the study of normal and abnormal fetal heart rate and rhythm.

• uncomplicated pregnancy at gestational age >12 weeks
• pregnancy complicated by abnormal fetal heart rate or rhythm or risk of abnormal fetal heart rate or rhythm at gestational age >15 weeks
• uncomplicated pregnancy <12 weeks gestation
• pregnancy complicated by abnormal fetal heart rate or rhythm or risk of abnormal fetal heart rate or rhythm at gestational age <15 weeks

Chronic Hypertension and Pregnancy (CHAP) Project (CHAP)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a blood pressure treatment strategy during pregnancy to achieve targets that are recommended for non-pregnant reproductive-age adults (<140/90 mmHg) compared ACOG- recommended standard during pregnancy (no treatment unless BP is severe) is effective and safe.
12 Years and over
Inclusion Criteria:1. Women with chronic hypertension in pregnancy with new or untreated chronic hypertension, blood pressure 140-159 systolic or 90-104 diastolic OR known chronic hypertension on monotherapy and taking any antihypertensive and blood pressure ≤159/104 (including those with blood pressure <140/90); 2. Singleton; and 3. viable pregnancy <23 weeks of gestation.
Exclusion Criteria:1. Blood pressures prior to randomization ≥160 systolic or ≥105 diastolic (with or without treatment); 2. Patients currently treated with >1 antihypertensive medication (more likely to have severe chronic hypertension); 3. Multi-fetal pregnancy; 4. Known secondary cause of chronic hypertension; 5. High-risk co-morbidities for which treatment may be indicated:
• Class C or higher diabetes mellitus
• Chronic kidney disease
•including baseline proteinuria (>300mg/24-hr, p/c ratio >0.3, or persistent 1+ proteinuria*) or creatinine >1.2. *If a dipstick value at screening is more than trace, a clean catch or catheter urine should be obtained and re-tested by dipstick. If this shows trace or absence of protein, the patient is included. If it again shows 1+ protein, the patient is excluded until a 24-hr urine <300mg/24hr or p/c ratio is <0.3.
• Cardiac disorders: cardiomyopathy, angina, CAD
• Prior stroke
• Sickle cell disease; 6. Known major fetal anomaly; 7. Known fetal demise; 8. Suspected IUGR; 9. Membrane rupture or planned termination prior to randomization; 10. Plan to deliver outside the consortium centers (unless approved by the Clinical Coordinating Center) or unlikely to follow-up in the opinion of study staff or previous participation in this trial; 11. Contraindication to labetalol or nifedipine (e.g. know hypersensitivity); and (12) Current substance abuse or addiction (cocaine, methamphetamine) *The minimum age varies by center

PROMMO Trial: Oral Misoprostol vs IV Oxytocin (PROMMO)
This is a prospective, randomized trial looking at the ideal method of labor induction for women with prelabor rupture of membranes and an unfavorable cervical Bishop score. The study will compare oral misoprostol and intravenous oxytocin.

A Dose Escalation Trial Evaluating Safety, Efficacy, and Pharmacokinetics of TransCon CNP Administered Once Weekly in Prepubertal Children With Achondroplasia
The trial is a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, dose escalation trial of weekly TransCon CNP administered subcutaneously in prepubertal children 2 to 10 years old, inclusive, with Achondroplasia.

Caregiver willing and able to administer subcutaneous injections of study drug
Exclusion Criteria:1. Clinically significant findings at Screening that:
• are expected to require surgical intervention during participation in the trial or
• are musculoskeletal in nature, such as Salter-Harris fractures and severe hip pain or
• otherwise are considered by investigator or Medical Monitor/Medical Expert to make a participant unfit to receive study drug or undergo trial related procedures 2. Have received treatment (>3 months) of human growth hormone (hGH) or other medications known to affect stature or body proportionality at any time 3. Have received any dose of medications intended to affect stature or body proportionality within the previous 6 months of Screening Visit 4. Have received any study drug or device intended to affect stature or body proportionality at any time 5. History or presence of injury or disease of the growth plate(s), other than Achondroplasia, that affects growth potential of long bones

Obstetric Liposomal Bupivacaine Via Surgical Transversus Abdominis Plane Block for Post Cesarean Pain Control (OBLiBupi)
This study seeks to identify whether the addition of liposomal bupivacaine to regular bupivacaine and saline administered via surgical transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block will reduce the cumulative opioid dose in the first 48 hours after cesarean. 60 women scheduled for cesarean at Unity-Point Health Meriter Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin will be enrolled and can be expect to be on study for up to 6 weeks post-partum.
