How Long Until You Know The Gender Of Your Baby
How far along can you go past your due date? And how long does the placenta work to feed your baby?
Most consider: Most consider it safe to go up to 2 weeks past the 40 week mark generally accepted as the due date but testing of fetal well being usually starts by 41 weeks and with reassuring tests the pregnancy can, in rare situations, be extended longer. The placenta can also age faster and in some conditions making fetal testing and, at times, earlier delivery necessary. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Time varies: Actual time varies.First labors take longer than later & average 8-10 hours.Some issues may delay the process, like an epidural placed too early or a baby tangled in the cord that will not descend.The risk of an infection affecting baby begins to increase after 18 hours of open membranes, so the ob's may add meds to speed the process or need to do a c-section. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: First time moms will generally work through labor to deliver in 12 hours. There are many factors that can slow or speed the process but that's average.Subsequent pregnancies usually take less time in full labor. Rupture of membranes starts a clock, after 18 hours the risk for infection in baby increases and the need to push labor with meds or do a c-section may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: The ultrasound procedure in skilled hands may be able to detect little male parts after they are completed about 11-12 wks. This would require that the turtle stick his head up to be seen. It is a bit more reliable later but again requires skilled hands to pick up the features & proper interpretation. ...Read more

How does the implanon change the lining of the uterus? How long after will i be able to have kids?
Use protection: Implanon protects against pregnancy, but not stds so use protection if that is a concern. The drug hormone released makes the uterine lining less friendly for a fertilized egg to implant. The Implanon website is a good one. Read it for further information, but it states you can conceive during the first week after Implanon is removed. ...Read more

What really determines the gender of your unborn child? Does it have anything to do with what your parents or grandparents had?
If your pregnant and have sex will it hurt the baby i'm going to the doctor to confirm the pregnancy and find out how long i am?
Depends: How bad do you need to know and how much cash can you invest? There is a maternal blood test often referred to as NIPP.It can identify fetal cells circulating in mothers blood as early as 8 weeks and chromosome studies can be done on these (inclusing sex). The parts are formed by 12 wks but can seldom be reliably reported on ultrasound until 16-20 wks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How do you know if your baby will have a head full of hair at birth andcan you tell by ultrasound pucs?
Hair ==>Cute images: Let me start with this: looking for hair is not a reason to do or prolong an ultrasound. However, as someone who has done countless ultrasound studies, I have seen fetuses with hair on their heads floating in the fluid. We can sometimes estimate whether there is a full head or only ring-like "monk hair" toward the end of pregnancy. The fetal pictures are cute, but the newborn ones are even cuter! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
