Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. 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

Is it normal to have thick white/yellowish mucusin stools early in pregnancy im 5 weeks pregnant & am having thick white & yellow mucus in my bowel movements? I still have 2   weeks until my first dr appointment, is this normal or something I should be co

Some : Some mucus in your stool can be normal since it's what your intestines make to stay lubricated. Larger amounts of mucus - especially when paired with fever, abdominal pain, cramping and diarrhea - can signal an infection. If you are noticing a change in your bowel habits or are having any of the above symptoms, you should call your doctor. They may want to see you sooner than your scheduled appointment. ...Read more

I just found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant, but I've had 1-2 drinks five nights a week for the last month. What is the risk To the baby?

Time to quit: The most important thing now is that you stop drinking. I can tell you recognize this or you would not be asking. Chronic alcohol exposure in pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome. If you feel you have a problem with alcoholism seek help. There are support groups in every city. Congratulations on the pregnancy ...Read more

Anatomy: This is not a mystery. Think of anatomy. In your lower abdomen you have intestines, bladder and colon. You are feeling fluids, gas or stool. Perhaps at your age it is time to get more attune to your body and the simple easily understood anatomy you live with. Gas and fluids and stool are moving constantly. An inflamed or irritated bladder or small intestine can constrict or swell. ...Read more

5 weeks pregnant. Can I have dried parsely and rosemery herbs added in my food? I have already had it twice, is it safe?

In small amounts: Rosemary is category B1 (animal studies have shown no risk to the fetus but no adequate well controlled studies in pregnant women are known) in pregnancy and compatible with lactation. Parsley in food is fine but should be avoided in large medicinal amounts during pregnancy. ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant . Can I take COCCULINE for nausea ?

I am 5 weeks pregnant . Can I take COCCULINE for nausea ?

Maybe ok, but...: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really in the medication anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to give you any benefit. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be safe to take for its placebo effect, UNLESS some other non-homeopathic ingredients were added. ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant, can I drink green tea that has ginger and cinnamon as well?Thanks

I am 5 weeks pregnant, can I drink green tea that has ginger and cinnamon as well?Thanks

Agree with other: Physicians answers, but would like to add one thing, if you do drink green tea early in pregnancy, add more folic acid. The way green tea works in cancer prevention is specific to a Folic Acid pathway and there is some research that suggests green tea could increase neural tube defects if you are low on folic acid, so double on Folic Acid to be safe. ...Read more

I am 40 and 5 weeks pregnant , can I take a natural supplement, either a natural HGH or a natural progesterone to help in early pregnancy?

I am 40 and 5 weeks pregnant , can I take a natural supplement,  either a natural HGH or a natural progesterone to help in early pregnancy?

No HGH: You should not take natural supplements during pregnancy without review by your Obstetrician. I am unaware of any need for HGH during pregnancy. Natural progesterone may be prescribed by your doctor if you have low progesterone levels from a defective corpus luteum called a luteal phase defect. Please talk to your provider before you take any natural supplements. Don't experiment with your baby. ...Read more
