Getting Scared During Pregnancy
Same way every time: Urban myth may have you believe you can pre-select your offspring but that is bogus.

I had heelp with my 2nd pregnancy, no problems with the first, I want to get pregnant again but scared of developing heelp again, what are the chances?
It can happen: Interesting that you had hellp syndrome on your 2nd but not your 1st. The highest risk would be on your 1st pregnancy. Once someone has had hellp syndrome they are at higher risk to get it again than someone who never had it. It's also true that the chances on your 3rd is lower than your chances of getting it on your 1st or 2nd. Your doc will need monitor the pregnancy closely.
Slight risk: Having an X-ray during pregnancy is generally considered safe. It's highly unlikely that an X-ray during pregnancy will harm a developing baby as most X-ray exams won't expose the baby to direct radiation. Also a leaded apron can be worn to shield your abdomen from the radiation. The exception is abdominal X-rays which directly target the abdomen. It is still wise to postpone non-emergent X-rays.
Depends: There is debate about ultrasound in pregnancy. until the 1980s Ultrasound was not available, and women still had babies. If there are no problems with the pregnancy, Many suggest a Fetal survey at about 19 weeks. More scanning, only if there is a problem. However, there is a lot of variability in opinion.
Usually none: Most women do not experience any symptoms at the time of implantation. Some women may experience vaginal spotting which is termed implantation bleeding.
No: Unlikely, recommend regular check ups with your ophthamologist.See 2 more doctor answers

Yes, very normal.: A lot of partners worry that sex will start labor or hurt the baby. In addition, they may look at you differently now that you are pregnant. Normally, sex is completely safe during pregnancy. The uterus and the bag of water prevent any injury to the baby. If you have certain conditions (placenta previa, abruption), your doctor will let you know not to have sex. Otherwise, it is safe.See 1 more doctor answer
