Pregnancy (Definition)

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can i eat pine apple during pregnancy? Iam 12 weeks pregnant

Can i eat pine apple during pregnancy? Iam 12 weeks pregnant

Yes: Yes there is nothing wrong with eating pineapple during pregnancy. Fruits and vegetables in general are good things to eat in pregnancy. I would just advise that if you're going to eat the skin of the fruit (like an apple) then wash it first. A pineapple's skin is removed so it's even more protected. ...Read more

26 day cycle but ovulate late, had menses; then spotting weeks later. TCD is 36 mm, @ 28 weeks since spotting. 36 is where I think I am, mw disagrees.

Early exams best: Dates can be very unreliable so we use lots of other markers such as the size of the uterus at an early exam and hearing fetal heart tones with a fetascope at 20 weeks but an early ultrasound is the most accurate. Your midwife is undoubtedly basing her judgement on many such things and I'd trust her judgement. At any rate, you have almost finished the marathon that is pregnancy so congratulations ...Read more

17 weeks pregnant. Is 1 cup of coffee a week ok? Prior miscarriage in June. 35  years old. Healthy.

Decaf O.K.: Decaffeinated coffee is best as the caffeine in coffee can speed up the fetus' heart rate which is already 120 to 160 beats/minute normally. Faster fetal heart rates can actually cause cardiac arrests just like in adults. ...Read more

Lmp 9/29/16. 30 day cycle. I had to ovulate early, got pos. pregnancy test 10/24/16.  When did I ovulate? How many weeks am I?

Last period: The weeks of gestation are calculated from the date of your last period not from the time of ovulation. Take todays date and calculate back to the first day of your last period. That is how many weeks you are. Later on a sonogram can be done to confirm the accuracy of the calculation. ...Read more

Should I take a HPT?

Too soon to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Fasting is high: When i follow patients with blood sugar issues i counsel them that the fasting should be less than 100 (some say 90). After meals i eecommend: 1 hour less than 140 or 2 hours less than 120. Your 130 value is at the higher end of my comfort zone. Discuss these values with your obstetrician. ...Read more

Can a pregnant women at 31 weeks eat sushi?

Can a pregnant women at 31 weeks eat sushi?

Sushi & pregnanc: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more

Check Thyroid: I would definitely have your thyroid evaluated if weight loss proves difficult. Post partum is a common time for thyroid problems to crop up. If it's normal, then you just have to go back to basics, 10k steps a day ( four miles) water, fruits and veggies. Long walks with the baby stroller are helpful. Think about a jogging stroller. Best of luck and enjoy your babies! They will grow up fast ...Read more

You may experience urgency again in late pregnancy when the head of the baby comes down in the pelvis and presses on the bladder, wish you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby ...Read more
