Is it possible to have too many apples in one day at 28 weeks pregnant?

Is it possible to have too many apples in one day at 28 weeks pregnant?

OD on apples!: I certainly have never seen anyone over-dosed on apples, but i suppose anything is possible. Apples are good for general health, but having too many during pregnancy may mean you are not eating what is needed for a healthy pregnancy--including cooked meats/fish, leaffy veggies, daries, and prenatal vitamins etc...So, if you are doing all those, enjoy your apples! congrats and good luck. ...Read more

Sugar: You may be fluctuating the amount or type of carbohydrates you are taking in. If you get much of your fiber from fruits, the sugar involved would likely cause more bowel movements more often, however, if the fiber is from whole grain sources with complex sugars....You could experience more constipation. ...Read more

When you have severe oligoathenszoospermia how many Clomid (clomiphene) can use for a day and how many milligram?

Depends: For that sperm problem Clomid (clomiphene) will not help you become pregnant. The treatment is likely ivf with icsi or maybe sperm extraction surgically. I presume you also have irregular periods. Clomid (clomiphene) can help with that. You start with one pill a day and go up only if needed since more pills can be harmful to getting pregnant in some women. ...Read more

How many times can I have sex in a day? How long and how many sex is allowable to have in a day? Is 7 times a day too much for a woman?

How many times can I have sex in a day? How long and how many sex is allowable to have in a day? Is 7 times a day too much for a woman?

Whatever feels good: There is no "allowable" frequency of sex if nobody is being forced and no pain or discomfort. You can have sex as often as you wish with no harm, although 7+ times might make you sore the next day. Of course if with multiple partners, you are almost guaranteed to get STDs and would be at high risk for HIV, even with consistent condom use. But no risk with a single monogamous partner. ...Read more

Blueberries are good for general health, but having too much of one thing may mean you are not eating something else that are also important, such as leafy veggies, diaries, other fruits, meats/eggs, nuts etc... If u are doing this already and no stomach upset, enjoy the berries. Good luck. ...Read more
