I wanted to know is it ok to excersize while being pregnant like use the the running machine????

Yes, definitely: The most important thing to remember when exercising while pregnant is to stay well hydrated. We used to think that pregnant women shouldn't get their heart rates elevated, but that is no longer the case. Most important is to drink a lot of water. So much water that your urine is clear/white. And drink while you're exercising. You burn more calories and get hotter when you're exercising. ...Read more

What is a safe product I can use to kill parasites while nursing and how long should I wait to nurse after ingesting castor oil?

What parasites?: Different drugs are used for different parasites, so a drug can then be recommended based on effectiveness and safety. Although there is no specific data on breast feeding and castor oil, it is reported that very little of the active ingredient in castor oil is absorbed from the intestine, so levels would be very low in B milk and would pass out of the colon with a bowel movement. ...Read more

I use nursing as a means to get my child back to sleep, What alternative method works once you stop nursing?

Sleep training: You may need to train your child to go to sleep without associating it with feeding. Put him down to bed when he is tired but still awake. Let him put himself to sleep, in the crib alone, with a night light in the room. If he falls asleep, then wakes in the night, he will see that he's in the same place and it is safe to go back to sleep. It will take practice, but you will both sleep better! ...Read more

It depends: Our bodies are always active- your heart never stops, you always breathe, your brain is always active, as is every cell of your body to some degree.

Is it safe to use wallpaper adhesive in a bedroom that my pregnant partner (4 and a half months) will be sleeping in?

Is it safe to use wallpaper adhesive in a bedroom that my pregnant partner (4 and a half months) will be sleeping in?

Not a good idea: Wall paper adhesive is often a solvent and not water soluble substance and as such has chemical fumes. A pregnant person should not be inhaling chemical fumes. Your partner should sleep in a fume free area and not in the newly wallpapered room until the smell of the glue is gone. Aerate the room well when you are wallpapering as the fumes are not good for you either ...Read more

How much time does semen take to dry on a towel in humid atmosphere? Can sperm or semen on a towel for 6-7 hours cause pregnancy? Help I am worried.

How much time does semen take to dry on a towel in humid atmosphere? Can sperm or semen on a towel for 6-7 hours cause pregnancy? Help I am worried.

Very unlikely...: Your mind-searching for the answer to support and help your personal concern is well respected. But, I'm afraid there has been no specific studies to address the specific concerns you have. So, at best and based on available info, I would say no sperm will & can survive under your described scenario. Yet, in reality, do HPT soon after missing the regularly expected period & repeat it in 1-2 wks... ...Read more
