Are consistent painful cramps and occasional sharp pains in my lower stomach normal signs in the 1st trimester of pregnancy? It keeps me up at night.

Will my baby survive if my wife gave birth after 12 weeks of pregnancy? My wife has been stressed and gave birth after 12 week weeks of pregnancy can my baby survive?

Fake question, right?: If your wife had delivered at 12 wks you would already know the outcome. They all die within hours if they have a heartbeat at this gestation. If she delivered in a hospital capable of high level neonatal care, she would need to make it to 22-23 weeks for any possibility of survival and even then, less than 10% make it. ...Read more

I am 12 weeks pregnant. Can I use shampoo and conditioner that contains dimethyl-dimethyl (DMDM), hydantoin? I have read that they are harmful during pregnancy

DMDM safe??: DMDM is an additive to shampoo as a antimicrobial. It realeases formaldehyde and can cause an allergic contact dermatitis. At your stage of pregnancy the fetus is still forming all the structures so probably NOT a good idea for exposure but you must realize that very little if any will be absorbed from the brief exposure of a hair shampoo. I advise patients to avoid ANY chemical exposure. ...Read more
