Don't over think it: You're not going to get a baby bump the first week or month you are pregnant. If you're trying to get there it may come in time but don't over think the process. Early symptoms overlap with lots of things. Pee tests can be falsely negative early in the process. Relax and re-test later. ...Read more

What are flesh colored bumps on vag lips inner and outer things had since begining of pregnancy had the baby and still have the bumps skin tags?

Bumps on labia: Without photos, it would only be speculation. Labia are noted to have surfaces similar to cauliflower at the outer edges. Otherwise the labia minora surfaces on the outside and inside are smooth. The majora skin is the equivalent of scrotal skin. Growths can certainly happen there and may also occur on the thighs. However photos are still needed. ...Read more

I'm on my period but having all the signs of pregnancy. Hot flashes, cravings, cramping more than usual, and bumps. Could I be pregnant?

Could my baby be kicking already? I'm only in my second trimester of pregnancy. 20-25 weeks. I keep feeling these bumps coming from my stomach and the skin is bumping up too. I got told that the baby does not start moving till the third trimester. If that

Hello.: Hello. Congratulations on your pregnancy. You may be feeling your baby kicking. Quickening is when you first feel the baby kicking. It is not uncommon to feel your baby between 16 to 22 weeks. Sometimes it is hard to tell what is going on. Was that gas or was that the baby? You should be able to feel the baby's movements more vigorously as your pregnancy progresses. The baby is moving well before your third trimester. It can be moving around by the 7th to 8th week, but you would not be able to feel it that early. Take care. ...Read more

This is my first pregnancy, I am 18weeks today! I have had no sypmtoms really but I am not getting bigger no bump yet! Is this normal?

Yes: First I am going to assume you have had an early ultrasound to confirm your dates. It is not uncommon to not "show" with a first pregnancy until about 1/2 way through your pregnancy. Rest assured in 2 weeks you will get an anatomy scan that will check the size and fluid around the baby. Good luck and congrats. ...Read more

Can cold sores (tiny bump on my lip) harm baby in pregnancy. I'm 8 weeks and I had my second cold sore for the last month and half.

Can cold sores (tiny bump on my lip) harm baby in pregnancy. I'm 8 weeks and I had my second cold sore for the last month and half.

Not directly: This process is localized to the tissues of your lip/mouth margin and does not enter your blood where it would have access to baby. If you have genital herpes and have a flare up around the time of delivery there can be some risk with that process. Discuss these issues with your doc. I encourage moms with a cold sore not to kiss their babies. ...Read more
