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 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

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
