COVID 19: We have to do the best that we can to socially distance from all of those folks. I am only going to places if I really need to. Wash hands (or use sanitizer) often for at least 20 seconds. Wash hands before touching eyes, nose or mouth. Use a cloth cover over mouth & nose when around others. Stay home as much as possible. Avoid sick people. Distance at least 6 feet from others.

In how many days will my milk supply come in?

1-10 days: Your pre milk or colostrum is probably already in, but your full milk supply can take a few days or more especially for the first time mom. A baby's cry, suckling, and holding your baby are all stimulants to your milk "letdown". Other factors which may help with your milk release is good hydration, good eating habits, drugs and sleep. Supplementation with formula can help in the meantime.

A 27-year-old member asked:
Why is it necessary to get so many ultrasounds in pregnancy/

It isn't: In an uncomplicated pregnancy, repeated ultrasounds aren't necessary. A 1st trimester sonogram is best for confirming the due date and number of fetuses while fetal anatomy is best assessed in the mid to late 2nd trimester. Additional sonograms may be recommended if complications such as hypertension, diabetes, or pre-eclampsia arise, but for the uncomplicated, low risk patient, 2 should suffice.
