Depends.: If you leak most often with activities like coughing, laughing or sneezing then you probably have stress incontinence. Leaking with a strong urge on the way to the restroom usually indicates bladder spasms or urge incontinence. Their are other causes of leaking urine. Your doctor can determine the underlying cause and best treatment. You can start the evaluation with your gyn.

Is it normal that my baby only feeds twice a day?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Yes: When babies start solid foods they usually will tolerate about 2 feeds a day. The breastmilk or formula is and should be the bulk of their nutrition. I generally recommend changing to a three meal a day routine when they are closer to 9 months.
A 43-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Dr. Megan Bird

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.

Should I be concerned if my urine is brown?

Yes: Brownish urine may be concentrated meaning that you are not drinking enough water. However, i would recommend calling your doctor's office for a urinalysis to make sure that nothing else more serious is going on.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Should I be worried if I feel my baby move less than 10 times a day?

Dr. Jeffrey Gladd

No: Not necessarily. A lot of times, you are so busy throughout the day that you did not recognize all the baby movement. If this is the case, drink a glass of ice cold water (may stimulate baby a bit more), and lie down in a dark, quiet room. You can now focus on baby movements and should count multiple movements in a 30 minute period. Try to replicate this as best as possible throughout the day.
A 22-year-old member asked:

Should my baby's urine be dark yellow?

No: This suggests most likely that the urine is concentrated and the baby needs more fluids, particularly if the baby is otherwise doing well.
