My arms are going numb and tingling a lot. I'm 21 weeks and I had this with my first two pregnancies. What causes it?

Try wearing thumb spica splints at night. ...Read more

After my pregnancy i lost my weight too much and there is no glow left on my face what to do for gaining wt and restoring my facial glossiness ?

Healthy diet, sleep!: The sudden hormone changes after birth, a decrease in your iron stores, and lack of sleep all take their toll. A too rapid weight loss is a shock to the system. Try now to stabilize your weight. Hydrate like crazy, take a multivitamin with iron( prenatals are good) and gain a small amount back( if you think you need to) but also slowly, like a pound a week. For the face, exfoliate, peptides. ...Read more

Im 26 n my husband is 34, is there possibility to be pregnant?  Is there any risk we could face in pregnancy? As my husband is elder than me.

Yes & no: Yes you can get pregnant if you both have the equipment. Your older husband is not as effected by age as you would be. Men can produce new healthy sperm well into their 60's & while there is some suggestion that the over 50 crowd is linked to some genetic risk, the healthier sperm tent to swim better.

I suggest you see an OB to get the information you need to answer the questions properly ...Read more
