Today my wife  cried alot and she also took lots  of  tension..will it cause  harm to baby as she is 21 week pregnant?

No, not if she: continues to get adequate fluids, nutrition and rest, and avoids alcohol and other drugs which are sometimes used inappropriately to relieve tension. Depression is not uncommon, so that if her symptoms continue, please speak to her OB about this, as an Rx may be indicated. ...Read more

Yesterday my wife was angry so she walked a bit fast...can it cause any harm to baby as she is 19 week pregnant?

Yesterday  my wife  was angry  so she walked  a bit fast...can  it cause  any harm to baby as she is 19 week pregnant?

No: Walking, especially walking quickly, is good for your health and does no harm to the baby. Tension, anxiety, stress can have an effect. I always recommend that a husband treat his wife very well when pregnant. After all, "if Mom ain't happy, ain't nobody happy". Do your best to not make her angry or cause her stress. I'll bet you can do it. ...Read more

My wife took lot of exertion and stress for last 2 day as she is 13 week pregnant . yesterday she spotted also. Can it cause any harm to baby?

Stress: is negative for the mother but not directly negative to the baby. If the the stress is causing lack of sleep or poor eating habits, then it could affect the baby. Spotting can be common in the first trimester, but should still be checked out. ...Read more

I am 9wks pregnant and constipated can you cause any harm to baby when forcing hard to go to bathroom?

I am 9wks pregnant and constipated can you cause any harm to baby when forcing hard to go to bathroom?

Nope.: You probably cannot strain hard enough to increase the pressure so much in your abdominal space to harm a fetus. Don't worry. You may, however, be uncomfortable - fiber, water, stool softeners, and laxatives can all help - just check with your doctor or pharmacist to be sure they're safe in pregnancy! ...Read more

While cooking my belly was close close to the flame and got very warm to the touch and reddish, even under clothes. Harm to baby? I'm 24w.

Very unlikely.: Biggest concern would be any injury to your skin. If you show signs of a burn that gets red or appears to be infected then you will need to get it looked at. ...Read more

Good question..: Cell phone use has dramatically increased during pregnancy with little to no evidence it is safe. It is interesting to note that it coincides with the dramatic increase in autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - although no evidence to link these facts has ever been scientifically proven. I would advise minimizing use of cell phones, laptops around pregnancy sac! ...Read more

Anticoagulant (Definition)

Anticoagulants are any of a variety of drugs which decrease the body's ability to make or sustain blood clots. They fall, generally, into two categories. Drugs like Aspirin and clopidogrel (plavix) prevent platelets from forming the initial stages of a clot. Drugs like warfarin (coumadin) and dabigatran (pradaxa) block the later process ...Read more
