Is it normal to feel your baby move at 13 weeks pregnant with your first child?

Is it normal to feel your baby move at 13 weeks pregnant with your first child?

Doubt it: Most mothers with prior experience will perceive their baby by 16 weeks, while 1st timers usually take longer. At 13 weeks they are active, but weigh less than 4 oz. How you would distinguish its movements from that of random bowel gas migration is hard to say. There may be a bit of anticipation involved. ...Read more

Unclear: There is no reason why anyone in general, at 12-13 weeks pregnant should change anything about their work status, because they are pregnant..... unless the nature of the job is going to be potentially hazardous to the health of the pregnancy. For example, working with radiation, chemicals or in situations that require heavy lifting, etc. Tell your superiors that you are pregnant! ...Read more

13 weeks pregnant, can I take canesten oral capsule?

13 weeks pregnant, can I take canesten oral capsule?

No.: Do not take Clotrimazole in pregnancy (class c - animal side-effects noted). I cannot think why anyone would prescribe Clotrimazole in pregnancy - seek a second opinion for your condition.
If you are talking about oral fluconazole, it may be taken as a one time 150 mg dose with appropriate counseling (fetal risks exist). Prefer topical treatment for yeast vaginitis! ...Read more

I am 13 weeks pregnant and my baby is head down already should I worry?

I am 13 weeks pregnant and my baby is head down already should I worry?

13 weeks.: For this 25 yo female at 13 weeks gestation with fetal head down. The fetus will continue to move and rotate inside the uterine cavity which is also very crucial in the development of the muskuloskeletal system. The position and presentation gets steady from 36 to 37 weeks gestation in preparation for onset of labor. Thus there is nothing to worry about now. Good luck. ...Read more
