Age Progression Of Baby Picture
19w & 5d pregnant had 3d ultrasound and can clearly see 2 babies. Dr never said anything about twins. Is this a mirrored image or is it twins?
Expect doc would say: If you are pregnant with twins, that isn't something that the doctor would usually forget to mention. I would guess that you are not looking at the US correctly or the image was distorted; however, you can be sure by calling your doctor and asking. ...Read more

Aging lung changes: Some loss of air sacs in the lung with age alone occurs. This loss is called emphysema. Years of uncontrolled asthma at any age can damage the lung.

I'd like to ask if I have had xray picture done and after like 40 mins I came back home, does radiation stayed with me? Did I pass it to my baby when I was holding her?
Xays past through yo: Get an xray poses no risk of spreading radiation to others including your baby. With xrays, the radiation passes through you at the time that it is done, and not of it stays in you. ...Read more

One of my eyes has a downward slope and is higher than the other. Noticed it in a baby picture. I am 49.
The real issue?: Nobody's face is perfectly symmetric. If you have a strabismus that's been missed so far, consider surgery. Stop looking at yourself so closely in a mirror -- it's not going to lead to anything helpful. Good looks in a man is 95% his physical fitness. Most of the rest is the way he carries himself, his good humor and the warmth that he can radiate. If it's not a serious cosmetic problem, forget it. ...Read more
Our ultrasound tech told us the baby was a boy but wrote on the picture that the baby is a girl. If we send you the picture could you tell us the gend?
Better not: US determination of baby's gender is at times subjective and depends on many factors: resolution, gestational age, technique, etc. So kindly ask your doctor for another exam, or simply wait and repeat later when the baby grows more, wishing you a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby ...Read more
My baby is a boy, 2 years and 11 months I did a complete blood picture and he has 10.6 haemoglobin is that value anaemic? And is it dangerous? And how can it b treated
It is low...: Have your doctor explain the results so you can understand what the plan will be. Most likely it is an anemia due to iron deficiency, but need to rule out genetic reasons like thalassemias. Treatment is via iron supplements or foods rich in iron like green leafy vegetables, meats, beans and iron enriched cereals. Egg yolks are also a good source. ...Read more
Both: Fetal age is of course the exact age of your fetus as determined by measurements taken of the baby. Fetuses have different rates of growth or may have problems with growth, so sometimes the measurement age doesn't match the "expected" gestational age. The best "age" is determined by an early ultrasound between 6 and 12 weeks gestation. Accuracy of ultrasound decreases as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more
If I am looking at my transvaginal ultrasound picture and the baby is on the left of the picture does that mean the baby is on my right in me?
Baby position: The short answer is yes, just like a mirror image, but the baby is active, and any position at present is likely to change multiple times. It is nice to think about, but not of concern regardless of the actual position at this point. ...Read more

I had a vaginal ultrasound today. In the ultrasound one picture shows a good size lump beside the baby aginsted the wall of the placenta. In all the other pictures there is a small circle beside child?
Without the image..: It's hard to know what you are describing without the image, but it sounds like a placental chorioangioma, which is usually a benign finding. Google that, and look at "images" to see how it compares to what you've got. By the way, the small circle is the yolk sac. ...Read more

All my bloods came back fine also a full blood picture normal? Wat else cud be makin my legs sore? They have been like this since after my 3rd child?
Possibly nerves: Pinched lumbar nerves can cause pain that runs down through the legs. Even simple deconditioning could cause leg soreness - you may want to try putting yourself on a simple exercise program (i.e. Walking 2 - 3 times a day) and see if that helps. I would recommend that you see an orthopedist for an evaluation if your symptoms remain troublesome. ...Read more

Are there any side effects of pregnancy or "belly" pictures? If a pregnant woman takes a picture does it cause any harm to the mother or baby?
Not: Not at all! pregnancy is a very special time and many women choose to document this time with photos. All a regular camera does is record the light reflecting off of the objects it sees. It does not emit radiation like an x-ray machine or sound waves like an ultrasound in order to get an image. Therefore, snap away! ...Read more

I wait until sitting: Studies of various populations show that breast milk alone supplies balanced nutrition for the first year +. Most early solid feeding pressure comes from the days babies were fed home made blends of boiled cow milk/karo & vitamins. At the time early supplements made sense, now they are overdone. Starting should focus on training baby to sit up & eat in preparation for his/her position at the table. ...Read more
4-8 months: Most infants start teething between 4-8 months of age. There is a very wide range of what is normal. I have seen several infants born with bottom front teeth already and many who didn't get their first tooth till 9-14 months old. In almost all cases it just works it own way out as the child grows. ...Read more
Confused?: A child passenger should ride in a proper passenger safety restraint for size and age until they are old enough to graduate to seat belts. This is usually age 12 yrs in the US. Kids change from a rear facing 5 point system to a forward facing no sooner than age 2 yrs. The best forward facing systems include a 5 point restraint which are available up to 60-80 lbs. Boosters are then used until 57" tall ...Read more
It varies.: Your baby will let you know when naps are no longer needed, simply by not falling asleep then anymore. Some kids go down to 1 nap daily by 1 year old, others not until 2. Some kids stop needing naps at all by 2 years, others still need it when they're school-age. Even some adults benefit from naps! Whatever time your baby wakes up on his/her own from the nap is the right # of hours. ...Read more
Never: This looks primarily to be a vitamin drop to me. Babies do need 400 IU of vitamin D daily. Other than this, your breastmilk and formula (assuming it is adequately DHA supplemented using optimal global DHA levels) contains all the vitamins and nutrients your baby needs to grow. If you are breastfeeding, then three times a week seafood is optimal for DHA secretion into milk. ...Read more
