How is it possible for my basal body temperature to rise when I am spotting and bleeding little after a chemical pregnancy?BBT taken at same time.

Very unreliable: Basal body temperature is notoriously unreliable.

Shaking chills can occur in both viral and bacterial infections. Keep up good e of fluids to prevent dehydration, rest and if not better in a day or two see your doctor. See earlier if any worsening. ...Read more

Can hot showers increase core body temperature during pregnancy? They're my only relief when my back is sore. I let stream fall on my back not tummy.

Not significantly: While hot tubs and baths with total immersion can increase core temperature, it would be very hard to do with a shower. If the heat is also just localized to your back, then this is probably okay. The issue of increased core temperature is mainly an issue during the first trimester. ...Read more

How can I exercise safely during pregnancy?

How can I exercise safely during pregnancy?

Be smart: In the absence of medical or OB complications, pregnant women should continue to exercise at a moderate level for 30 minutes a day most days of the week. Speak with your doctor if you are unsure if exercise is safe for you.

I am already heavy but I don't wanna gain to much during my pregnancy what type of exercise should I do while I aam pregnant?

I am already heavy but I don't wanna gain to much during my pregnancy what type of exercise should I do while I aam pregnant?

Great question!: By far the best exercise you can do is walking! make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes! and take nice slow walks...Great for the circulation; and low impact. You might also try using an elliptical machine; as this is also low impact on your joints, just do it slowly and you'll get a great work-out. Yoga is another great thing to study while pregnant; very relaxing. Best of luck! ...Read more
