Can babies have xrays after they are born without damage? Why are they so protective ofthe fetus?

Not just the fetus: The amount of radiation in simple xrays is small & unlikely to cause any issue, yet we are very sensitive to the complex changes in fetal development.The first 4-12 wks of fetal development marks the most vulnerable period to injury & after that point we worry less. Xray exposure also adds up over time & the eggs nearby in your ovaries don't need any we can avoid. After birth, babies ready for life. ...Read more

Is there any lifestyle choices i can do to make my fetus not turn out to be a fussy/irritable infant? He's very active at 27 weeks. Anything i can do to calm and ease him?

Is there any lifestyle choices i can do to make my fetus not turn out to be a fussy/irritable infant? He's very active at 27 weeks. Anything i can do to calm and ease him?

No: The only cause and effect evidenced by medical study that causes a fussy/irritable baby is the effect of drugs like cocaine, heroin and caffeine. Even a stressed out mom does not cause a stressed out baby since the physiological effects of maternal stress are transient. The good news; active infants at 27 weeks gestation do not predict actual infant behaviou after birth. Good luck! stay happy. ...Read more

Our gyn said that our fetus gender is boy 18 weeks after preg. Using his clinic ultrasound. He said 100% as baby cooperated and legs open. Is it 100%?

While nothing: Is 100%, if the u/s saw a penis and scrotum, only a very masculinized vulva could mimic. It sounds like he/she OB is certain that your fetus has male gender. You will know for sure after birth. What is the rush? Curiosity and satisfaction have a price, and this isn't worth it. ...Read more
