What shouldn't I do during pregnancy?

What shouldn't I do during pregnancy?

Illegal opiates: There are a lot of things to NOT do during pregnancy, but I want to focus on the overuse of opiates by pregnant women and the impact on their unborn children who go through drug "withdrawal". There are several studies about the rising use of these drugs by pregnant women recently and it is a bad testimony to our profession (healthcare) to convey this message to the general public. ...Read more

If I didn't eat well or take prenatal first 2 months of pregnancy, should I be worried?

If I didn't eat well or take prenatal first 2 months of pregnancy, should I be worried?

Probably not: Prenatal vitamins are recommended in early pregnancy partly because they contain folic acid. This has been shown to prevent certain problems with the baby's spine. However, if you didn't take prenatal vitamins, these problems are still very rare. Odds are high that your baby will be just fine. Best wishes! ...Read more

Depends: Why are you not eating more? Nausea? Just not hungry? What is your weight? If you are skinner, then you can stand to miss meals a lot less than someone heavier. You need to check in with your obgyn. If you haven't started taking prenatal vitamins yet, you need to start.

Good luck and congratulations. ...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?

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 more

Asked questions before I don't understand, I have had spoting coming and going since Saturday, it's now back again, what could this be, pregnancy?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I believe I'm preg but keep getting neg test. I have all the early symptoms of being preg. Last pregnancy I couldn't get a + until I was 9wks. Why?

Huh!: That actually doesn't make any sense to me. You should be showing positive long before that on UPTs. What happens if you get a blood test for pregnancy? Maybe you drink lots of water and dilute out your urine? Maybe you don't excrete the hormone? Maybe you're on dialysis? Maybe someone else has a better answer. ...Read more

How hard I should feel baby moves at 20th week of pregnancy? Because I don't feel that much moves I mean I feel smthng but not like wow. Is it normal?

How hard I should feel baby moves at 20th week of pregnancy? Because I don't feel that much moves I mean I feel smthng but not like wow. Is it normal?

Any movement is good: One of my daughters did handsprings. The other was a "happy lump". However both were moving. Oddly it's their postnatal personalities too, but don't read into that. It's fine if they aren't making your belly bulge out. If you feel some movement, that's what's important. So enjoy, and be glad you're not in pain. You should also have your 20 week ultrasound coming up, which should reassure you. ...Read more
