You're fine.: Every woman and their baby begin to show at slightly different times. It does depend a little on your body shape. You should start showing within a few more weeks. Many women would be jealous that you are not showing. Congratulations on becoming a Mom! Enjoy these moments!

I am breast-feeding and am interested in doing a figure competition. How can I prepare for competition without affecting my milk supply?

I am breast-feeding and am interested in doing a figure competition. How can I prepare for competition without affecting my milk supply?

Nurse, pump, exercise: Human breast milk has a high % fat, so nursing is like a small, daily liposuction. Don't take your diet down to unsafe levels. Exercise more, and nurse more. If your baby is full, and you desire to express more milk, you can use a breast pump. Get enough rest. Expect to be tired. As long as you are patient, you will see good results. I have had several patients go through the same experience.

Is it true that lead doesn't cross placenta until 12 weeks?

Is it true that lead doesn't cross placenta until 12 weeks?

Probably harmful: Exposure to lead is probably harmful to the formation of the placental cells as well as the developing embryo and fetus. Since lead is a heavy metal, it may remain in placental, embryonic and fetal tissues for months to years and cause permanent and often irreversible damages.

What does it mean at 12 weeks if dr says I have a low lying placenta?

What does it mean at 12 weeks if dr says I have a low lying placenta?

Low "lying" placenta: The placenta is developing very close to the cervical opening, and is not "truthful" (lying) as it will usually migrate upwards further into the uterus as the baby grows later in the pregnancy. If it remains in that location, bleeding may result.

No: There are many myths about gender and various signs, heart rate, string test, etc. None have any value. An ultrasound around 20 weeks can usually provide dependable gender identification.

Besides pregnancy a lot of other conditions can cause missed period like stress, hormonal imbalance, excessive weight loss and exercise, thyroid problem among others,

How come ultrasounds done at 6-8 weeks are considered more accurate than 12 weeks?

How come ultrasounds done at 6-8 weeks are considered more accurate than 12 weeks?

Less variability: There is very little difference in size between different 6-8 week embryos. Therefore there is less uncertainty of their ages. The further along the pregnancy gets, the greater the manifestations of individual differences. So a fetus that will be 9 lbs at birth will look bigger than one destined to be 6 lbs.

Your OB doc: Should have told u taha is normal as long as it is not called a low lying placenta which I assume it is not.
