No way to tell...: There is no way to tell what a baby fetus feels regarding the mother's emotions.

For pregnant lady, is it normal if the baby inside a mother's womb, frequently kick mother's belly last few days but today there's no kicking at all at this has been happening for almost 2 days. Should I be worried?
Probably: Very early in pregnancy movements may vary. However, later on, especially in the third trimester movements should occur daily. In the last few weeks of pregnancy I recommend kick counts (6-10 movements the hour after you eat). In your case since I don't know her gestational age, have her call her OB today and see if some fetal monitoring is needed or nonstress test needed. Don't delay. ...Read more

Always tough: There is no specific cause for homosexuality although genetics might play a role. It is not caused by parental misdirection nor any known ordinary influence of the environment in which you were raised. This trait is strong and not diminished by any known drug, psycho or physical treatment. The public feeling about homosexuality is becoming more tolerant - hopefullly your family can join. ...Read more
Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy.?
Fetal doppler...: ...Can detect any movement of blood in the body, but with a false pregnancy, all the doppler rhythms should be at the same rate as the woman's heartbeat. Fetal heartbeat tends to be much faster so if you find that, the pregnancy is probably real. ...Read more

No correct answer: Children with down's syndrome have certain features that are indicative while in utero. Weight is not one of them.

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least. Very nervous?
Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around. The hiccups are unrelated. I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts. C-section is often needed. ...Read more

Discomfort/Fear: We all cry for similar reasons: fear, discomfort, and hunger. If you know your baby's tummy is full, the most common reasons are teeth or bad dreams (depending on their age).

I also would check your baby's diaper, clothes, and bed to make sure that there is nothing causing them discomfort. ...Read more
