Use tylenol (acetaminophen) for headache, it's safe. Stay cool. And talk to dr. About headaches. ...Read more

Hi

Dr says depend on anatomy

Gender won't change: The earlier it is in a pregnancy, the harder it is to determine. Since the gender is determined at conception (I think), it won't change. So, it's more like the radiologist/tech wasn't sure earlier, and became more sure later on. ...Read more

This is all viewed in the context of how healthy things are. Even if not pregnant, height also comes into the equation. ...Read more

If I am 20 weeks 6 days pregnant today what day did I concieve?

Jan 28-29: First of all I would caution you that the accuracy of dating the pregnancy is highest in the first trimester. So if the first sonogram where they figure out your due date is between 6 to 12 weeks then it's pretty accurate. I don't know the date they told you that you were 20w 6d but if it was today (June 10, 2016) then conception occurred around Jan. 28-29th. Adjust the date accordingly. ...Read more
