More than average: The average weight gain during pregnancy is 25 pounds. But of course, this is for women that start at an average weight. Your weight is low, but close to 'ideal' when based solely on your height. A 25-35 pound weight gain will be your goal. Unless your doctor has placed you on restriction or you have had recent vaginal bleeding/cramping/rupture of membranes, sex during pregnancy should be fine.

A 19-year-old female asked:

I am about 4 to 5 weeks pregnant i've been bleeding for a week already. I have no cramps nor blood clots . I went to the doctors yesturday and was told there was an egg sac but they couldn't see anything inside of it. The doctor told me I may be too early

Correct!: This early in pregnancy makes it difficult to discern whether it is a developing fetus in the egg sac or a "blighted ovum" of a possible miscarrriage. The "tincture of time" will tell the difference. Be patient as mother nature works on her own schedule.

A 21-year-old female asked:

2 days late for my period, used condom with pull out method, could I be pregnant?

You might be: Condoms are not very effective by themselves because there is leakage around the base or they may leak. The pull out method is also very unreliable. We call people who count on the pull out method 'parents'. Check a pregnancy test in a few days. Check again 3-4 days after that as well to be sure.

A 21-year-old female asked:

2 days late for my period, we used a condom and he pulled out while still wearing it before ejaculating can I be pregnant?

Check a HPT: 2 days-late is common and so it is difficult to tell. You may want to do a home pregnancy test which is easy to do, fast, and quite accurate. If negative, waite 5-7 days and repeat and if still negative, likely it is negative. If positive, congrats and good luck.

A member asked:

What does a negative pregnancy test look like ? Are both lines dark ? I took the equate one from walmart (walmart brand) and I was curious if it was a false negative or if it was too early my period isnt due for another 2 weeks

It depends: Each test is different. Most tests show two bars as positive. The package will tell you the best time to take a test. Typically mid void first thing in the morning. The closer to the time of expected next period is best.
