Headache for the past 3 days especially when I walk or exposed to light? And pain behind my eyes and I'm 28 weeks pregnant? Kindly adivse?

Other possibilities include migraine which, being present for 3 days, needs evaluation and treatment to avoid complications. Either way, immediate evaluation by an obstetrician, primary care physician, or in emergency room is extremely important. ...Read more

28 weeks pregnant, at my 21st week I had anamaly scan dr said was fine. After that I have NT taken any scan. Dr told to take scan @ 29th week. Is ok?

Confusing question: The scan itself is not a danger to you or the baby. It does offer the doc some information that can be helpful. Ultrasounds later in pregnancy can help verify normal progress of the baby along with finding the location of the placenta.All are part of good monitoring to assure the best outcome. ...Read more

Does the seventh month of pregnancy start at 27 or 28 weeks?

Sir, Iam 28 weeks pregnant. But I like a male baby is time.

Sir, Iam 28 weeks pregnant. But I like a male baby is time.

You get what you get: It is the sex chromosome carried to the egg by the sperm that will determine what gender your baby has. It is totally the fathers doing, since your egg can only contain a single X chromosome. If he sent an X you get a girl, a Y you get a boy. That happened at conception. There is no diet/exercise/sex position that can change the process. ...Read more

Why do I feel presure when I lay down an am 28 weeks pregnant...?

Why do I feel presure when I lay down an am 28 weeks pregnant...?

Pregnancy pressure: It's preferable to not lay flat on your back during the later stages of pregnancy. It's best to lay on your left side and not your right side. That is because of the large blood vessels to and from the heart and the sides of the body where they are. Constipation is common during pregnancy and may be contributing to your discomfort as well. Be sure to address your concerns with your Obstetrician. ...Read more

Is it possible to have too many apples in one day at 28 weeks pregnant?

Is it possible to have too many apples in one day at 28 weeks pregnant?

OD on apples!: I certainly have never seen anyone over-dosed on apples, but I suppose anything is possible. Apples are good for general health, but having too many during pregnancy may mean you are not eating what is needed for a healthy pregnancy--including cooked meats/fish, leaffy veggies, daries, and prenatal vitamins etc...So, if you are doing all those, enjoy your apples! Congrats and good luck. ...Read more

I'm 28 weeks pregnant. When I bend over I cannot breath at all. What could this mean?

Normal physiology: As the uterus grows the space for your lungs decreases. This can make you feel short of breath. Bending over can worsen the problem. This is normal physiology of pregnancy. Asthma can worsen or improve with pregnancy. If you experience quick breathing or severe shortness of breath go to the emergency room immediately. Chances of a blood clot in the lung are increased in pregnancy. ...Read more
