How safe is it to have sex during the last week and days before the due date of labor?

Safe: Sex is a normal part of a healthy relationship. Unless told otherwise by your physician, you can participate in sex. As long as you don't do anything out of the ordinary as part of your sexual routine, things should be fine. A good fact to know is that semen can cause contractions and can increase the intensity of your contractions :). ...Read more

What causes a woman to not dilate during labor? And can regular sex jus before her due date alleviate that?

What causes a woman to not dilate during labor? And can regular sex jus before her due date alleviate that?

No dilation: Sex can cause release of hormones that can cause contractions and help bring on labor - as can manipulation of the nipples (probably safer and more comfortable) Every woman handles labor differently - it is true labor - if so - failure to progress (no dilation) may require the OB to intervene -
hope that helps ...Read more

Conception: First you get pregnant during ovulation. That rules out december 9th. You gad a period after that day. December 15 would be just shy of possible since you were not ovulating yet. Sex for your pregnancy occurred 12/17/2013 to 12/22/2013. So it is the third date. ...Read more

Unsure of last period, intercourse march 10, 2013 and due date november 30, 2013 do the dates add up?

Yes: These dates add up well for an estimated delivery date of november 30. Check a pregnancy wheel or google this information. Based on that due date, pregnancy was probably achieved around march 9, give or take 1-2 days and assuming the estimated due date is accurate. ...Read more

If I have sex september 14th through the 16th with one guy and sex on october 5th am I due date is june 23rd 2014 who is most likely to father?

10/5 partner: A baby conceived on 10/5 would be born close to 6/28. One conceived on 9/16 would be born around 6/9. Thus, your partner on 10/5 is more likely to be the father. After birth a blood test can definitively determine which is the father. ...Read more

Pregnancy: Hi, no way to pinpoint it down, the fertile time is usually 11-16 days prior to the next period, so both 24th and 27th are within the fertile time, if you had multiple partners then you might need to do paternity test on the baby after was born. ...Read more

Edd is 18 dec and I am currently 35wks 6 days. My doc is 27 mar but I had sex 5, 11, 15, 17 and 30 mar. On which date of intercourse made me pregnant.?

Cannot be sure.: Most likely the 11-17, but the exact day is impossible to tell because both the sperm and the egg will survive a few days in the female genital tract, and conception can occur up to three days after sex. ...Read more

I'm already past my due date so expecting to go into labour any moment/day now. Since last night my husband&I both have runny stomachs. Can this affect my baby? If I go into labour now and we both do skin-to-skin with our baby, can doing so harm him?

I'm already past my due date so expecting to go into labour any moment/day now. Since last night my husband&I both have runny stomachs. Can this affect my baby? If I go into labour now and we both do skin-to-skin with our baby, can doing so harm him?

No: As in the non pregnant state when diarrhea is involved, rectal hygiene prophylaxis (hand washing and rectal clensing) is essential. In labor, given the passage of the baby through the pelvis, the premature diarrhea will empty the rectum and facilitate labor. When handling the newborn for you and your husband thorough hand washing is essential prior to contact with the infant. ...Read more

I'm 12 weeks and two days today when did I concieve my baby? I have a due date of november 30, 2013. I had sexual intercourse early on march 10, 2013

I'm 12 weeks and two days today when did I concieve my baby? I have a due date of november 30, 2013. I had sexual intercourse early on march 10, 2013

10 weeks ago: By convention, we date pregnancy from the first day of your last period. You typically get pregnant approximately 14 days after that. Therfore, if you are 12 weeks pregnant, you actually conceived 10 weeks ago! If your due date is accurate, you conceived on or around march 9th. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

I had an ultrasound on 5/23 dating me at 15 weeks 2 days with a due date of 11/11. My LMP was on 2/9 could I have conceived from intercourse on 2/26?

I had an ultrasound on 5/23 dating me at 15 weeks 2 days with a due date of 11/11. My LMP was on 2/9 could I have conceived from intercourse on 2/26?

Not likely: By convention, we date pregnancy from the first day of your last period. You typically get pregnant approximately 14 days after that, but in your case the us is not at all consistent with your lmp. So, your us dating would appear more accurate. Based on that, you likely conceived on or around 2/18. That being said, us is not always perfect! Best of luck to you! ...Read more

I had a dating ultrasound on 4/19 dating me at 9 weeks 4 days with a due date of 11/18. My LMP was 2/14, could I have conceived from intercourse on 2/21?

I had a dating ultrasound on 4/19 dating me at 9 weeks 4 days with a due date of 11/18. My LMP was 2/14, could I have conceived from intercourse on 2/21?

Is possible: Based on your dating ultrasound, your estimated date of conception would have been 2/26. This assumes a regular 28 day cycle and ovulation on day 14 of the cycle. If you know for sure your first day of LMP was 2/14, suggests ovulation 2/28. These are estimates based on assumptioms, but the dates are close enough that it is possible you could have conceived 2/21. ...Read more

I've been loosing mucus like discharge since 30 weeks now 34 weeks doctor knows. Will I go in labor sooner than my due date?

I've been loosing mucus like discharge since 30 weeks now 34 weeks doctor knows. Will I go in labor sooner than my due date?

30-34 wks/pregnant: Heavy mucus discharge is very common in late pregnancy, and is not a predictor of when labor may begin. Be aware that a sudden gush of watery liquid may indicate ensuing labor, so if this occurs, see your ob immediately. A mucus discharge is not indicative of a problem, but at your next exam, ask your ob to do a culture to make sure it is not from an infection. ...Read more

I'm 3 days from my due date and I have been having very painful heartburn is it a sign of labor or not I have already lost my mucus plug?

I'm 3 days from my due date and I have been having very painful heartburn is it a sign of labor or not I have already lost my mucus plug?

Could be both..: Labor or contractions typically cause cramping pain, often mid to lower abdomen, for a few minutes at a time, then eases up and the cycle repeats over and over until the baby is born. Heartburn or reflux often cause more constant pain and lasts much longer. It is not unreasonable to try some tums/pepcid, but being 3 days before due date, and loss of mucus plug, chance of labor is high. Good luck. ...Read more

I had intercourse with guy #1 (9/23/13) & guy #2 (10/14/13), my due date is (7/14/14) who is likely to be my child s father?

Conception: Conception calculators are all over the web and you can play with them for numerous reasons. I use this one: http://www. Babymed. Com/conception-calculator. And, you have been told already, the baby is from guy number two. You had a period after you were with guy number one and thus he cannot be the father. Sex occurred to cause this pregnancy 10/16/2013 to 10/21/2013. ...Read more

Going past the due date means baby is less active or any other probkem? What trigers the labor? What could be reasons for pasr due?

Due date: First you must realize that your given due date is only a guess. If your cycles were regular, or if you had a very early scan, your due date might be off by 3-4 days. Most baby's deliver between 39-41 weeks. If you go beyond 41 weeks the baby's health needs to monitored closely. Going beyond 42 weeks is not advisable. We don't know what the actual trigger for labor is yet. ...Read more

Hello. I need help determining who the father is. Dec 8 2014 was my lmp. According to the dr. My conception date would be Dec 22nd 2014. Partner A intercourse was on Dec 16 and partner B intercourse was on Dec 24. My due date is Sep 14 2015. Although par

Close call: The due date is from LMP, do you also have ultrasound dating - and does it match? This is a very tough call because estimated conception falls in between the 2 partners. MORE likely based on info you gave partner A is the father, but if dating is off by as much as 3-4 days it "could" still be B. Do you have more dating info from early ultrasounds? Might help. BTW your sex is listed as male? ...Read more

What is the usual time a woman will go into labor before her due date?

The week before...: The week before the due date, many women go into labor. The due date is an estimated date of delivery, but babies are very often born a few days before or a few days after their due dates (it is not very predictable exactly when the mom will go into labor). ...Read more
