4 Weeks And 1 Day Pregnant
I'm 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant. What's the best stuff to drink and eat. I drink plenty of water too.
If you are drinking plenty of water, you are doing a good job! That is the best liquid to drink.
A healthy and balanced diet that has all the three categories: carbohydrates (40-50%), protein (20-25% or 0.5 gram per pound of your body weight) and fat (25-30%) would be the most appropriate. Also, one mg of folic acid/day has been shown to be beneficial. You may also discuss it this with OBGYN ...Read more

When is it safe to stop worrying about an ectopic pregnancy? I have had no symptoms, but am only 4 weeks, 1 day pregnant and looking for reassurance.
When the US is done: If you have risk factors (prior ectopic, prior surgeries, endometriosis, pelvic infections, etc) an ultrasound is the best way to confirm an intrauterine pregnancy. At 4 weeks a gestational sac may be seen & definitely should be done if you have any pain, bleeding, or risk factors. Good luck & take care. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex four times in one day, 5 days ago. And yesterday and today I've been really naseuos. Do you think I'm pregnant?
What are my odds of getting pregnant one week before my period? I have pretty regular cycles with maybe a three to four day difference month to month.
Could I be pregnant? I have all but one or two symptoms to be pregnant. My period shoud have came on the 22nd of march give or take a day. I took four pregnancy test, but all were negative. I never had a period to be late for more than a day or two.
As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Did you take your tests too soon? If you took your tests a week or more after your missed period, you are probably not pregnant.
There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I can't state if you are pregnant. Normally a pregnancy test (standard urine home pregnancy test) can be done the first day that the period is missed. Some times, even if you are pregnant, the test will give a negative. This is because the HCG level may not have been high enough to trigger a positive test result. So if you did the pregnancy tests too early, they might be negative for that reason. If you did the pregnancy tests anywheres from the first missed period day to 7 days later and after, and they were done exactly the way the test instructs and it was still negative then it is likely that you are not pregnant. A woman can miss a period without being pregnant. Good luck. ...Read more
I had a normal period for one day then spotting for four days and now have cramps. Could I be pregnant?

If I have had one miscarrage and four aborations and I'm 23 and pregnant again how un healthy is that?
Not necessarily unhe: Unhealthy to be pregnant but unhealthy if you have any more terminations as in some women that can cause problems getting pregnant or keeping the pregnancy, if u are sex active at your age you should be responsible enough to use birth control if u do not want to be preg, there are so many options, abortion should not be used as birth control, if u are keeping this one or not please seeyour obgyn. ...Read more
I took postinor first on a particular date, four days later, took another one. Am I likely to get pregnant?
"morning after pill": Should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex and is one dose, except for Postinor 2 which is dosed as a second pill 12 hours after the first. Was your second pill for a second episode of unprotected sex? Or part of the two pill pack? Postinor is QUITE EFFECTIVE in preventing pregnancy, but is not recommended for regular contraception. It will interfere with normal periods. ...Read more

I took two pregnancy tests today. One at four pm and one at four foutyfive pm. The first was positive the second negative. Which do I belive?
Pregnant: I believe that even the over the counter pregnancy tests recommend using a first morning urine because the reaction depends on a concentration of a compound in the urine. The first test is likely right, the second test was too close to the first so you did not have enough time to build up the hcg. Congratulations! ...Read more
I took four pregnancy test and they are the ones that have the plus sign for the possitive, to of them the plus had both lines but one of them is ligh?
Home pregnancy tests: You have a common question. Tests used by labs are basically the same as your home test. If there is any advantage, it is that they can "spin" the urine which concentrates the it (& hormone) and may show a very early positive test better. But if you do the test with first morning urine it is very accurate. A quantitative blood HCG level at your doctor will confirm test and your dates. Good luck! ...Read more
If I was an egg donor previously & only did one donation about four years ago. Would that increase my chances of becoming pregnant with twins?
Not likely: The hormones you took to be an egg donor aren't still present in your system and so your chance of conceiving twins should be the same as the general population. ...Read more
I've taken four OTC pregnancy tests and only one gave me a positive reading. Is it possible that I'm not producing enough hcg? I'm approx. 5 weeks.
Is there a condition where two races can't have a baby? I've had four miscarriages with a person from another race and one live birth with a person of my own race. I am 6 weeks pregnant now.
No: It's possible that the specific person you were trying to get pregnant with wasn't compatible with you, meaning that when your chromosomes combined, there were problems with formation of viable pregnancy. Also possible that he was cause for infertility (men are 30% of time) and not you at all. But none of this has anything to do with race. ...Read more
I have had seven negative pregnancy tests and four periods my last one was on time but very irregular now im late last time I had sex was 18 weeks ago?
Options: An occasional off month is common and does not indicate a problem. For continued irregular periods see your obgyn for an exam and testing. Depending on your age and fertility plans there are lots of treatment options. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle. Your doctor will do blood work for thyroid disease as well as polycystic ovarian syndrome. No need to keep repeating the preg tests. ...Read more

I have had four negative pregnancy test and yet my period is four days late...I've never had a late one before. Could I be pregnant?
If you did the test correctly at four days after missed period, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. You may take a blood test for HCG which is more sensitive and would be positive now if you are pregnant. Or, you could repeat the home test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the 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

Can sore lower abdomen be a symptom of pregnancy? I am four days late. And I would assume if I am id only be one week. To soon to test?
Can I be pregnant?:
It is impossible to give you any valid answer for your life. You failed to mention when you ovulate in your cycle and where you were in this cycle when you had sexual exposure to fresh semen.
But, in general, if a period is delayed it is time to test. This is usually more than fourteen days after ovulation and thus plenty of time for an impregnated fetus to implant and be growing in the uterus. ...Read more
