I stupidly went on a hard crash diet (no pills or anything) lost 25 pounds in one month..Then  found out am 5 weeks pregnant.  Could this harm fetus?

Unlikely: I would start eating a healthy balanced diet now with prenatal vitamins with 1mg of folic acid. If you took your vitamins and ate healthy food during the diet then you will probably be ok. However, if you are severely malnourished then that could effect the pregnancy. ...Read more

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.

Is it safe to go on a small roller coaster (space mountain) at five weeks pregnant since the fetus is so small and the placenta hasn't yet formed?

Fetus at Space mtn.: Really, you would jeopardize a 9 month viable pregnancy over a 3 minute roller coaster ride? The amusement park usually posts a sign that says that they are not responsible for pregnant women should there be an adverse occurrence. Take a hint, not a good idea. ...Read more

I have done laser lipo 3 times and just found out i'm 4-5 weeks pregnant. What are the dangers to the fetus? I'm very nervous.

Depends: The laser itself or lipo is not likely to be an issue. If you recieved versed through the IV that would be more of a concern. However the human body is very forgiving. You may benefit from a level 2 ultrasound later in pregnancy. ...Read more

Im approx 5 weeks pregnant, my hCG -18500 and progesteron -103.But in ultrosonography doctor can't see fetus.Is it normal?How it should develope?

Im approx 5 weeks pregnant, my hCG -18500 and progesteron -103.But in ultrosonography doctor can't see fetus.Is it normal?How it should develope?

Unusual: Usually we can see an embryo once the HCG levels reach 10, 000. However we've learned that the discrimination zone can vary greatly with each pregnancy. I've seen pregnancies such as yours & not seen the fetus for another couple of weeks. If your HCG is rising, no bleeding or pain, be patient and follow up with your ob. It shouldn't be long if normal & your doc can determine this soon. Take care. ...Read more

I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. The hospital I went to shows no signs of a fetus. My hCG levels are normal and I have ultrasound pics from my doctor.?

I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. The hospital I went to shows no signs of a fetus. My hCG levels are normal and I have ultrasound pics from my doctor.?

???: Don't know what you mean "hospital shows no signs of a fetus". An ultrasound was done showing an empty uterus? "hcg levels are normal" - what does this mean? Hcg is not elevated, i.e., consistent with not being pregnant? If elevated, what's the level? Simply because you have sono pix from your doctor at some point doesn't mean you're still pregnant, but need more information. ...Read more

Ultrasound showed 5 weeks pregnant instead of 7 with no yolk sac n fetal pole gestational sac 1.6cm with corpus luteal cyst of preg 31mm miscarriage??

Not yet: These are approximate dates. There is a week error at this phase. And dates could be off as well. It is best to wait a week or two and also measure the blood for the hormone levels of HCG. Then you will have a better measure of how things are going. ...Read more
