I am 15 weeks pregnant my friend is 6 days farther along then me and is way bigger than I am does this mean I am carring in my back?

I am 15 weeks pregnant my friend is 6 days farther along then me and is way bigger than I am does this mean I am carring in my back?

No...: Every baby develops differently and every woman shows differently...Even between pregnancies. For example, women with stronger abs will generally show less, and later. 2nd pregnancies usually show faster and more. As a general rule, the top of the uterus (the inside "bulge") will be around the belly button in most women about 20 weeks. Don't compare yourself, however, as everyone is different. ...Read more

I'm 15 weeks pregnant can I drink soda???

Caffeine & Pregnancy: The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends moderate caffeine intake during pregnancy, under 200 mg/day (make sure you know how much you drink). However, you should consider switching to coffee and never drinking soda- it is bad for you and your family in the long run and contains too much sugar, which can affect your baby. Good luck.

Sleep in pregnancy: Unless you are suffering from depression or have a rare condition like narcolepsy, extra sleep of 8-10 hours in early pregnancy is fine. Your body is undergoing several changes which can cause fatigue in some patients. Make sure you are taking prenatal vitamins with 1 gm of folic acid and are not anemic. Best wishes. ...Read more

If I'm 15 weeks pregnant, does that mean I conceived 15 weeks ago?

If I'm 15 weeks pregnant, does that mean I conceived 15 weeks ago?

No, usually: Obstetricians count from the first day of the last menses even though conception occurred on day 14 (in ideal cycle). We do this because most women know the last menstrual period but most do not know the day of ovulation and conception. In your case, you likely conceived about 13 weeks ago. Many of my infertility patients who track ovulation do know that day and we use it. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am 15 weeks pregnant they found lots of sugar at my 1st appointment no sugar in my 2nd appointment and very very little in my 3rd. What could that b?

I am 15 weeks pregnant they found lots of sugar at my 1st appointment no sugar in my 2nd appointment and very very little in my 3rd. What could that b?

Diet: Do you mean sugar in your urine? Or you took a screening test for diabetes? Sometimes both can be affected by what we've eaten that day. The screening tests typically require a confirmatory test, so that test makes up for fact you may have had higher blood sugar levels when you took the random 1 hour glucose test. If in your urine, talk to doctor about risk factors for diabetes. Good luck! ...Read more
