Sex determination: by heart rates is not reliable. By this stage, your OB should be able to accurately determine the gender of your baby with an ultrasound. Congratulations! ...Read more

Can you tell me how early can babies be healthily born?

Depends on Healthy: 3 wks and above are not even classified as early. 10 weeks early and above the outcomes are good with lower risks of prolonged ventilator needs and can generally go home within a month of due date. Every 2 weeks earlier, the risks of deathbad outsomes go up and length of stay goes up. Edge of viability (not counting good outcome) is 16-17 weeks early. ...Read more

Can i plan for my babies gender, through ovulation, pH testing, diet etc?

Can i plan for my babies gender, through ovulation, pH testing, diet etc?

Gender Selection: No. The only way to guarantee a baby's gender is to do in vitro fertilization and then test the gender of each embryo prior to implantation. You can try to filter sperm based on weight to select a gender but this method is not fool proof. There is no way to naturally encourage one gender over the other. ...Read more

I'm 17 weeks pregnant, is it too early to tell the babys gender?

I'm 17 weeks pregnant, is it too early to tell the babys gender?

Not too early: Now is just about the right time. By 17 weeks, a good ultrasound should be able to determine the baby's gender. Usually, i schedule the ultrasound closer to 20 weeks to allow time for all of the organs to be fully formed so the answer will be very clear. Earlier than that, it is still possible that it will be too early to tell. ...Read more

Tell me when do babies sleep through the night?

Tell me when do babies sleep through the night?

That varies: New babies don't sleep through the night because they need to awaken to feed. As they get bigger, they sleep longer. Most babies can safely do an 8 hour stretch when they're several months old; some do it a little younger, some a little older. Babies are people; what happens one way in one happens a bit differently in another. ...Read more
