I've had two pregnancies that ended in which both babies heart just stopped beating one at 23 weeks one at 27 weeks. Im 10wks pregnant now will this repeat?

I'm 23 weeks pregnant i stop smoking 3days ago. How long does weed stay in your babies stool? Is there any way to clean the system faster

In some cases there is some, but not much. She did her best and just needs to continue. Best wishes to them! ...Read more
