Can parents tell that their child is pregnant? Because my mom is looking at me funny like she knows something.

Parental Intuition: If you have a pregnancy bump, then she might have a visual reason to be suspicious that you are pregnant. Also, parents have a good sense of who you are and can easily pick up and sense changes you may not even realize that you are exuding. They may not know exactly you are pregnant, but they may pick up on the fact that something is going on with you..

IS iT BAd FOr MOm TO GEt SCAREd WHILe PREGNANt?

No: It's bad for anyone to get scared anytime but it doesn't harm the baby unless what is scaring you hurts you or the baby. Fear can actually protect you and the baby if it leads to actions that keep you from harm. Hope this helps. Best wishes to you both.

Can I get my mom pregnant? We want to have children together

Risky: Although every pregnancy has a 4% risk of having an unexpected surprise (premi, birth defect, infection) that changes in closely related individuals.

I'm 17 and pregnant... Does my mom have the right to make me not have my baby.

I'm 17 and pregnant... Does my mom have the right to make me not have my baby.

It depends on legal: Matters ; what state u are in. U should first discuss your concerns with your mother, then perhaps another trusted family member, your doctor, a hospital social worker, and finally you might have to talk to a lawyer. Your rights to your body are ethically held high, but parents of minors have different powers in different states. The courts usually give many rights to the birth mom.

Pregnant question my mom could not get pregnant for 10 years is that something that is hertitary and will be a problem for me to?

Pregnant question my mom could not get pregnant for 10 years is that something that is hertitary and will be a problem for me to?

There: There are many different causes of infertility. Some are hereditary or partially hereditary but infertilty per se is not a heritable disease. Since 30-40% of infertility is male related, your mom might not have had any fertility problems at all. Try to find out what she knew about the cause of her fertility difficulties and any gynecologic problems that she subsequently developed. A more specific knowledge of her history might be helpful in predicting your potential but most likely her history doesn't necessarily mean problems for you.

I'm 17 and pregnant I live in texas. Am I emancipated if so what's it mean. Because im trying to move out since my mom won't help me?

Emancipated: Emancipation of minors is a legal mechanism by which a minor is freed from control by his or her parents or guardians, and the parents or guardians are freed from any and all responsibility toward the child. At 17 and with child, you may be an emancipated minor and can make you own decisions without your parents consent. Best case, you try to maturely discuss your situation with your parents.

I'm pregnant and I live with my mom who smokes and refuses too go outside too smoke I have nowhere else too go around it all day very scared?

I'm pregnant and I live with my mom who smokes and refuses too go outside too smoke I have nowhere else too go around it all day very scared?

Smoke inside/Outside: Yes, you do have to respect your mother's home as that is your present residence. As you know even 2nd hand smoke environments can be like smoking as well. Appeal to your Mom's desire to have a healthy Grandchild to enjoy by not smoking in the home. If that fails, open a window if possible in a isolated room, or better yet, you get outside and sit or take a walk for exercise. Good luck!

I'm pregnant and my mom may need chemo soon. Will she be allowed to hold the baby?

I'm pregnant and my mom may need chemo soon. Will she be allowed to hold the baby?

Most likely: There shouldn't be any danger to your baby after grandmother has chemo. However, if she doesn't have a functioning immune system because of the chemo then the baby may pose a danger to her. Follow the recommendations of her oncologist (cancer specialist) with respect to when she can be around the baby. Usually if the baby isn't sick or hasn't had certain shots it should be fine.
