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.

Obesity often obscures the physical findings for gynecomastia as the chest fills with fat.

I am seeing a discharge men's like and I am missing my period but i don't think I should be pregnant because I use durex to protect sex.
Unclear: I'm uncertain what you mean by discharge 'men's like'? Do you mean that your vaginal discharge is cloudy like semen? If so, completely normal. Vaginal discharge is sometimes clear, sometimes cloudy. So long as no itching or foul smell you should be okay. Condoms prevent pregnancy only 70% of the time... So definitely are not the best at preventing pregnancy. Better than nothing, but not great. ...Read more

I am already heavy but I don't wanna gain to much during my pregnancy what type of exercise should I do while I aam pregnant?
Great question!: By far the best exercise you can do is walking! make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes! and take nice slow walks...Great for the circulation; and low impact. You might also try using an elliptical machine; as this is also low impact on your joints, just do it slowly and you'll get a great work-out. Yoga is another great thing to study while pregnant; very relaxing. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I found out a couple months ago that I am anemic. My periods are to heavy and my cramps feel like I am in labor. I am not pregnant. What should I do.
Further work-up: Anemia is common in woman with heavy periods and is due to iron deficiency. Bleeding leads to loss of iron which has to be replaced with pills or as an infusion. A gynecologist should be seen to see if there is medication to reduce the intensity of the menses and your primary care should do a work-up for iron deficiency and treat or refer you to a hematologist as needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What was the plan?: In the U.S. Women control their own bodies and their destiny, so they always must have a plan for what to do in case of an accidental pregnancy (before having sexual activities). The plan can include giving the baby up for adoption, keeping the baby and getting married to start a family, or aborting the baby. Before worrying too much, one can do a urine pregnancy test a week after a missed period. ...Read more

Does ascorbic acid in vitamin C really help terminate a pregnancy? The reason i ask, i think I am pregnant since I have not had my period and I am supposed to have it right about today or tomorrow. If I am I have decided to have an abortion but I am not
You : You are considering an abortion using mega-dose vitamin c . Is it safe? No. What kind of health problems can it cause for you? Diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, gastritis or stomach ulcerations, anemia, constipation, increased flatus, hot flashes, joint pain and loss of body stores of copper. When combined with Aspirin or anticoagulants there can be adverse interactions. There are a variety of conditions that prevent adequate metabolism of vitamin c, so you would not urinate out the excess. The proposed mechanism of action is that vitamin c interferes with the production of progesterone. Herbal abortions work by poisoning you. The theory is that it your toxin levels will be so high, that the it will kill the embryo. Because, this is a very dangerous business, it can also kill you or make you very ill. The success rate with killing the embryo is actually rather low. I recommend that if you are going to be sexually active that you use some form of birth control responsibly. ...Read more

Genetics?: Fat distribution has some gene input-men (some women) gut/bell-apples; women (some men) buttocks/hips-pears. Alcohol? Called a beer belly for a reason. Calories out more than in: weight loss; some areas more resistant. Check your exercise routine, but crunches etc. Don't get rid of belly flab; they tighten and tone the muscles underneath.. Last, make sure not fluid in belly, e.G liver disease. ...Read more
Exercise: After pregnancy our metabolic rates (the amount of calories we burn in 24 hours) can change. Often women describe, including myself, that weight is harder to lose after pregnancy. Increased exercise definitely can help. Studies show that interval training exercise is the best for weight loss and fitness. There are on-line calculators that can tell you how many calories to have a day. Good luck. ...Read more
Geeze I wonder.: No time to take care of oneself as the baby becomes center of the universe. Eating junk or snacking when their isn't time to prepare and sit down to a wholesome meal. Scratching gym time and personal trainer off the schedule to focus fulltime on motherhood. Soothing frustration or baby blues with food. There are lots of possible reasons for weight gain. ...Read more
Normal: Discharge changes a lot in pregnancy, especially in last trimester. The discharge can become copious... Sometimes so much that you think you might have broke your water.
