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

What are the danger of mobile waves when using for along period of time in pregnancy..Is it harm to baby?
My wife due date is 22-5-2013..
Thanks

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

Is it normal to get a cystocele on first pregnancy at 27w? Not overweight. Stand and sit for long periods of time. Is there harm to baby?

Is it normal to get a cystocele on first pregnancy at 27w? Not overweight.  Stand and sit for long periods of time. Is there harm to baby?

No harm...: Cystocele rarely occurs in your described scenario, but not impossible. If it's, it would be very minimal or marginal. Clinically, it bears no harm to baby during pregnancy, but be aware that more vaginal deliveries may worsen the degree of existing cystocele over time. This is life and that is what we know about it. More? Ask doc timely. Best wish... ...Read more

I am 6 weeks pregnant my TSH is 12 said to be high. Dosage I am taking is 100mg of eltorxin and in feb it was 0.8. Is there any harm to baby .

I am 6 weeks pregnant my TSH is 12 said to be high. Dosage I am taking is 100mg of eltorxin and in feb it was 0.8. Is there any harm to baby .

Thyroid/pregnancy: Most likely there will be no noticeable effects on your baby once he/she is born. Your hypothyroidism was diagnosed early in your pregnancy which is good. Generally the recommendation is to keep the TSH between the lower end of normal but below 2.5 which is where yours is currently. Hope this helped. ...Read more

I am very early in my pregnancy. I've drank a cup of milk and found a dead fly inside it. I am worried about toxoplasmosis infection and harm to baby.

I am 36 weeks pregnant. I used a heating pad on high setting on my back and fell asleep. I woke up hot a few hours later. Did I cause any harm to baby?

I am 36 weeks pregnant. I used a heating pad on high setting on my back and fell asleep. I woke up hot a few hours later. Did I cause any harm to baby?

Probably ok: The back is dense with muscles. The heat should of dissipated and would not have hurt your baby. Burning your skin however is my biggest concern for you in this situation. Be careful. Good luck with your labor and delivery. ...Read more

Ws hypothyroid(TSH 4.5).With synthroid, (thyroxine)my TSH is 0.03 and FT4=2.3.Dose reduced.If I conceive now,wht r the harm to baby?Is it different than Grave's?

Ws hypothyroid(TSH 4.5).With synthroid, (thyroxine)my TSH is 0.03 and FT4=2.3.Dose reduced.If I conceive now,wht r the harm to baby?Is it different than Grave's?

Dose should be cut: Your hypothyroidism was borderline with TSH of 4.5 but most would recommend treatment if you are pregnant to get TSH below 3. However the dose of thyroid hormone you were given was too high so now you are mildly hyperthyroid. Don't think it will harm the baby but dose should be reduced to bring your FT4 below 1.8 and your TSH up to the 0.5-3 range ...Read more

Anticoagulant (Definition)

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
