I am 28 weeks pregnant and baby is still not in head down position does she still have time to turn and wgen she does will I feel it and be able to tell?

Yes and no: There is plenty of time for the baby to assume the proper position. You may not be able to tell after a big shift if the baby is in the right position but a quick look at the doctors office with the ultrasound will tell the story. ...Read more

Im 28 weeks pregnant, belly has dropped very low, baby moves a lot down my belly botton, no pain or blood, belly tigh 1 or 2 per day, please help!

Normal: What do you need help for? This is normal. This is common and there is nothing here to be of concern. What does your prenatal guide book say? I believe your OB would have recommended at least one book on being pregnant to read during this exciting time. That book would also have the common and normal things to expect during pregnancy. ...Read more

28 weeks pregnant. I used to cry and brood sometime, when I feel down for some reason. Scientifically, Will this mentality affect my baby's health?

28 weeks pregnant. I used to cry and brood sometime, when I feel down for some reason. Scientifically,  Will this mentality affect my baby's health?

There is no definite evidence that crying and brooding will affect the baby unless it is combined with other unhealthy things, like alcohol, drugs, bad diet, etc. ...Read more

I'm 28 weeks pregnant is Tamiiflu ok will it hurt my baby?

I'm 28 weeks pregnant is Tamiiflu ok will it hurt my baby?

Check with OB...: Tamiflu is category C in safety, which means that they have not seen damage in human fetus but in animal studies they might have observed some type of issues. Many OB doctors prescribe this category especially if the risk of the disease is worse than taking the medication. I would discuss it with them but definitely having the flu and not taking care of it is more dangerous in my understanding. ...Read more
