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

Hi. I was wondering if u have un protected sex with a guy and he doesn't even precu m and pulls out if there's a chance of pregnancy?
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
Hi dr I just want tell u I have problem I was preganit my pregnancy was etpoic and after this I'm keep trying but I can't get perganit what cn I d?
I had the implanoon removed about a year trying to get pregnant and it hasn't happen but now I feel symptoms of pregnancy but don't feel pregnant?
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?
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
