Durning pregnancy do your tujmmy make loud noisy and why and how would you know when the baby is sleep?

Durning pregnancy do your tujmmy make loud noisy and why and how would you know when the baby is sleep?

Baby mostly sleeping: You and i sleep by laying on a bed, or a couch/chair, but a baby in utero is sort of laying/floating 24/7, and i would say sleeping most of the time while the body develops. Periodic movements, which many women begin to feel possibly after 20 something wks, happen all the time (same as adult--we move during sleep). Your tummy makes noise--gas moving around, as my does too. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Having my first vaginal ultrasound with my first child will it hurt will they show me my baby? What do they do during it

Having my first vaginal ultrasound with my first child will it hurt will they show me my baby? What do they do during it

New baby: To evaluate the baby they will want to put a probe in the vagina. This should not be more uncomfortable than any routine pelvic exam by a doctor. If the baby is large enough to see I would expect they would share the image with you. Usually mothers get a copy of a picture of the ultrasound. There is no risk to the baby as they use only sound waves. ...Read more

Can I still be pregnancy with home test and blood test said negative I have all the sign of pregnancy and look up other thing maybe but only thing that fits is pregnancy I have pcos and im over weight too this is my first time what should do next like is

Unlikely: Home pregnancy tests and blood tests are usually pretty accurate, depending on how soon after fertilization you did the test. Repeating a quantitative blood test (which measures the amount of pregnancy hormones) is more accurate than just a positive or negative qualititative test. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Alright my girlfriend got pregnant but we're to young and not trying to tell are parents what do we do?

I am not your parent: nor will I pretend to be, but you are talking about a complex social and moral issue for many of our young people at this day and age.

Do you know if orgasms are safe during 2nd trimester of pregnancy and onwards?

Safe in pregnancy: Sexual intercourse and orgasms are generally safe in all three trimesters of pregnancy. There are a few exceptions to this such as ruptured membranes or a bleeding placenta previa. But these situations are not common. If everything is going well, it is a good time to be intimate. There will be a lot less time after the baby is born! Best wishes. ...Read more

Hormones; pregnancy: PMS is a hormonal event related to the earlier event of an egg ripening and the uterus getting ready for a pregnancy. Periods and PMS occur when that process is reversing. It may be that you never released an egg. PMS or its absence may also be related to other medical conditions, such as thyroid. BUT, pregnancies can happen with all kinds of contraception, no matter how careful you are. ...Read more
