How Do I Know It Is My Baby If I Am Asleep When Delivered
Hunger Cues: You'll learn your baby's various cries and cues over time. In the meantime, some hunger cues are fairly universal. While babies cry for all kinds of reasons, if it's been awhile since her last feed, and she begins fussing, puts her hand to her mouth, sucks a lot, or roots her face toward anything that it touches, she's hungry. Feeding at the onset of fussing can prevent the "frantic baby" later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Amenorrhea Wnts Baby: If you have no periods (amenorrhea), then you are not ovulating and you will have trouble getting pregnant. Eventually you might ovulate but it would be about 2wks before period. The best idea is to see a fertility specialist who can find out why you do not ovulate and then use meds to make it happen. Your problem is treatable but you almost certainly need help to succeed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hard to say : Pregnancy has many ups and downs ant a quiet and comfortable pregnancy does not always give us information on how the baby will tolerate the stress of labor. Women can also develop hypertension rather quickly leading to complicated delivery. The best thing you can do for yourself is eat well, rest as needed and continue pre-natal care. The answer you seek may only be clear during labor. ...Read more
Poor urine output: There are several ways you can tell if your baby is dehydrated. The most important one is if you notice that your baby's diapers are drier than normal or that he or she has fewer wet diapers.

Experience: Little babies will root, turning their head and opening their mouths in a movement of looking for the breast. Tired babies tend not to make eye contact. It never hurts to try a feed. As you get to know your baby and his or her cries, you will become adept and knowing if baby is tired or hungry. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Change Ur perspectiv: Babies are not aware of sleep or it's benefits until into their 2nd yr. At birth, they learn to cry when they want things to change & use this when they tire. Your job is to recognize when they tire & help them settle. Getting to sleep is their job. Feed as they wake up, entertain for a while & place them alone in their crib when they tire.Those who rock or feed them to sleep have more pbms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Look for these...: Look for signs of hydration, like good urine output, most mouth and eyes, tears with crying. Also, look for adequate stools. Babies who are getting adequate milk (and who are otherwise well) usually seem satisfied after feedings, have adequate alert, awake periods, and grow normally along standard growth curves. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Biting: If your baby bites while nursing, immediately put your finger in his/her mouth and remove him from your breast. Minimize distractions, try to remain calm, and allow her to start nursing again. If the biting continues, he/she may not be hungry. Try again later. If babies receive a consistent message that biting equals no more nursing, they will stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When can I know exactly my baby's sex as I am 19 week pregnant and my doctor said that it seems girl but I am not sure till now. Why is not clear?
Bashful: Fetuses aren't always most cooperative for ultrasounds. They can be "bashful" and not display their genitalia clearly for ultrasound to determine gender. If penis is visible, it's obviously a male. But if not visible, perhaps he's just "bashful" & ultrasound tech is unable to visualize it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
See below.: As dr. Hossain said, drool, fussing, and biting may be signs of teething (although babies can start chewing and drooling months before the teeth start coming). The gum overlying the tooth can get red and swollen, and you may feel something very sharp just under the gum there. Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen helps, as does cold teething toys. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 15wks pregnant and i was wondering was it safe to get my tooth extracted? Im really nervous and i don't want anything to be harmful to my unborn.
Should be fine: Good for you to protect your unborn child ! the optimum time in pregnancy for things such as this is the 2nd trimester, which you are in . This is predominantly a growth phase rather than a development phase. Although Epinephrine in reasonable amounts should not be an issue, you might opt for a combination of a small amount of anesthesia with epi and some more without. Good luck with all. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Comfort: Improper latching is uncomfortable. It hurts. Proper latching should not hurt. Also, you should hear your infant swallowing milk, which indicates good milk flow from the breast, as well as good transfer from the front of the mouth to the back of the throat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See Doctor: Go to your doctor for examination and any testing that is indicated. Better to be safe than to guess what's happening. ...Read more
So what do it mean if I got my period now I am bleeding.I feel sick in the morning.can I still take a test when it let me know if I am have a baby?
My doctor just asked 'what do I do if you die giving birth?' since I am single. How horrible is that?
Horribly tactless: Part of history taking and registration is to enquire regarding about next of kin. Doctor and/or hospital need to know whom to contact in case of an emergency and worst case scenario who will be responsible for the baby if the unmentionable happens to you. Is it possible that the doctor put it more tactfully and your interpretation aws as you stated? Good luck. Baby and you will do well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
