19wks pregnant, while sleeping i turn from side to side.I repeatedly change my positions.But i don't sleep on my back.Am i harming my baby by turning?
No: Being pregnant can be scary & we often fear that simple things we do can be harmful. Your baby is well protected in your uterus by the sac of fluid (amniotic sac) that it is in. Even when you lie perfectly still- the baby will be moving inside of you on its own. Breathe easy knowing that your tossing & turning doesn't hurt. It may help you to get a body pillow so you can get a good night sleep. ...Read more

I'm 25 weeks and 4 days pregnant, when I count back those weeks it falls on Oct 8,2014 Is that the day I conceived ?
No: we count from the FIRST day of your last NORMAL menstrual period. Many women do not keep track, and often an ultrasound is done when you are about 9-12 weeks to give a better idea of your due date. You would have to count forward 14 days (usually) from Oct 8(about October 22) and THAT is the day you conceived---give or take a few days. Discuss it with your doctor at your next visit. ...Read more
