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.

MaterniT21.: Your question was cut-off - but, if I understand correctly, you are concerned about the risk of Down syndrome in your current fetus because of your prior infant with down. My answer is easy: take folate, (folic acid) get genetic counseling and consider the maternit21 non-invasive test by sequenom (or others similar to it now commercially available) to determine this fetus' risk for down syndrome. Best of luck! ...Read more

So what is the youngest age to talk to a doctor about getting help getting pregnant. I live in Australia. I have been trying for a little over a year.

No limit: There is no age limit for consulting a Fertility MD, however at age 16 it is very unusual with unprotected intercourse over 2 years to not be pregnant. You need to see a regular GYN MD just to be sure all "the parts are present and in good working order". ...Read more

Need more info: Have you been under a care of an OBGYN for these pregnancy losses, and if so has s/he done a workup?

Hello I would really love to talk about my period because today I've started this morning and it just stopped please sir would you tell me if this is about a pregnancy or something please contact me today or as soon as possible?

Hello I would really love to talk about my period because today I've started this morning and it just stopped please sir would you tell me if this is about a pregnancy or something please contact me today or as soon as possible?

Many reasons: A formal consultation would be really helpful for you, I think. There are lots of reasons why a young woman might get unexpected menstrual bleeding, such as a hormonal dysregulation. A gynecological exam would also help to make sure that the bleeding is actually from the uterus and not the cervix or vagina. If you missed a period then definitely get a pregnancy test. Contraception can be helpful. ...Read more

Down: Down syndrome is pretty easy to detect on sight, and it's very unlikely that your baby has that condition without its having been detected. There could potentially be other issues, but it's not possible to tell whether or not there's anything wrong without a complete physicial evaluation.

Babies develop at different rates, so there's no reason to be overly concerned if yours is a little behind his peers in some areas. Again, only a visit with your doctor can sort out what's within a normal range. ...Read more
