Which one is better for almond or soy milk for pregnancy?

Which one is better for almond or soy milk for pregnancy?

Either...: I know no good studies to guide the answer to your question so I will give you my opinion: Either one is fine and both contain good things like omegas. Soy milk is higher in protein and calories. In Asia they eat lots of soy products and have healthy babies. So, drink the one that tastes best to you but make sure it is organic to avoid pesticides. Silk makes a delicious organic soy milk!

No worries: If the product wasn't on the recall and/or you only experienced mild symptoms, then you should be fine. Be sure to maintain good hydration and monitor for any worsening symptoms such as diarrhea or fever.

Is topically using coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil & aloe vera gel (as homemade lash/brow serum) safe to use during pregnancy?

Is topically using coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil & aloe vera gel (as homemade lash/brow serum) safe to use during pregnancy?

Pregnancy-safe oils: Castor oil and sweet almond oil may bring on early labor, if used earlier than term. Coconut oil and olive oil are safe in pregnancy. Topical vitamin E oil is felt to be safe, but may cause contact dermatitis in some people, as can topical aloe vera. "When in doubt, leave it out" applies in pregnancy. Https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.

Can we use almond oil for breast massage in pregnancy due reduce the pain n tenderness? I have breast tissue in my left breast checked by doctor.

In moderation but...: I was surprised to find a study suggesting that women who regularly used almond oil for abdominal massage during pregnancy had increased risk of premature birth but more research is needed. Occasional use for breast massage might be fine but I would advise coconut oil instead. See http://tinyurl. Com/n69qz8s and http://tinyurl. Com/kddujov

Spinal cord stim: It is safe to become pregnant and deliver with a spinal cord stimulator in place. Vaginal delivery is fine. Some spinal cord stimulators may be inactivated or unable to charge the battery if a monopolar electro cautery (bovie) is used during a caesarean section. Discuss with your obstetrician.

My IUD is still in and should have been removed about 6 months ago do I have a higher chance of pregnancy now? What can happen if I keep it in longer?

My IUD is still in and should have been removed about 6 months ago do I have a higher chance of pregnancy now? What can happen if I keep it in longer?

Maybe higher: IUD's will still protect from pregnancy past the time they are recommended for removal. However, after the recommended removal date, the effectiveness of the IUD may become less, as the copper or progesterone diminishes. An IUD is still quite effective for birth control without the copper or progesterone, but not quite as effective as with it.
