If i was to end up having caesarean delivery, would obgyn be able to do surgery to "tie my fallopian tubes" at same time if i request it? I am 45 y/o.

If i was to end up having caesarean delivery, would obgyn be able to do surgery to "tie my fallopian tubes" at same time if i request it? I am 45 y/o.

Your OB will guide you through the questions and the process so it can be done with ease. ...Read more

Sex during pregnancy: Sex during pregnancy is a good thing as long as you're interested & willing. Never do anything against your will. With that said, receiving oral sex is fine as long as he doesn't blow air into you (which puts you at theoretic risk for air embolism).

In some people changes occur. This does not mean you have anything to worry about. Enjoy the last 3 weeks of your pregnancy. Many women do not start labor on their "due date" it happens when it happens baby's are unpredictable. ...Read more
