24 weeks pregnant, how many litres of water I should drink? Currently I am drinking 3 litres of water. Am I over drinking? Help out

Look at your pee: How much water a woman should consume in pregnancy can be tricky. It depends on your metabolism, the temperature of your environment, your exercise or activity level and your genes. I tell women to drink until their pee is clear. If your pee is clear, you're likely well hydrated. If it's yellow and has odor to it, drink more. It's a more accurate way of determining hydration. ...Read more

Hi im 24 weeks pregnant and my boyfriend told me that my vagina feels loose and thinks im cheating is it normal for it to be like that?

Hi im 24 weeks pregnant and my boyfriend told me that my vagina feels loose and thinks im cheating is it normal for it to be like that?

There is no: Connection with vaginal "looseness" and either the amount of sex one has or the number of partners one has. I also know of no correlation between that and pregnancy other than some women have more vaginal secretions during pregnancy. It may be the increased lubrication is what he is feeling. Otherwise, there is absolutly no way to tell if someone has been cheating by how it feels "down there". ...Read more

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and I cant walk far at all without being in agony with very painful stitch like feelings and have to stop why is this?

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and I cant walk far at all without being in agony with very painful stitch like feelings and have to stop why is this?

Pregnancy discomfort: As the uterus increases in size, various tissues and ligaments around the uterus stretch and pull. Progesterone hormone causes softening of the ligaments so the pelvis can stretch open more easily. Pain from this can be terrible and impact a woman's life. Sometimes we will have women fit with special support braces to relieve the pain and discomfort. Talk to your OB about this. ...Read more

Is it safe to travel long distance while pregnant? I'm 24 weeks pregnant and want to drive from washington to arizona. It will be 1145miles there. Is it safe to take the trip?

Is it safe to travel long distance while pregnant? I'm 24 weeks pregnant and want to drive from washington to arizona. It will be 1145miles there. Is it safe to take the trip?

A: A woman with a complicated pregnancy may not want to travel too far from the doctors who know her best, but if you and your pregnancy have been healthy, then it's probably ok. You may want to check with your doctor just to be sure. If you make the trip, a few tips to keep you safe are:
- drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated! None of us wants to stop the car to pee every hour, but when you are in your second and third trimester, staying hydrated will keep you from having contractions and will help to prevent blood clots.
- move around! Sitting in the same place for hours can cause you to develop blood clots in your legs - especially when you're pregnant. You are more likely to form clots just from the hormone changes that come with pregnancy and your heavy uterus is sitting on the main veins from your legs causing slowed flow so there's more chance of a clot forming. Since clots often happen in the groins of pregnant women, doing calf exercises while sitting is not enough! (you're going to be stopping constantly anyway to pee from all that water you're drinking, right?)
- bring your chart. Have your doc give you a copy of your pregnancy records "just in case" something happens while you are away. That will give the doctors caring for you far away from home a huge advantage to have all of your information.

Happy travels and wear your seatbelt! ...Read more

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and im having this really bad pain in my chest when I take deep breaths or when I do to much what could be causing this?

See your OBGYN: If you don't have one - get one ASAP. An exam is necessary to determine what's happening. It may be nothing big - or it may require some active interventions. In any case, you'll be better off if you have a comfortable relationship w/ your OBGYN. P.S. Update your description - it thinks you don't know if you're pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

Hey im 24 weeks pregnant and I stopped smoking weed about 3 weeks ago. Will it be out of my system and my babies by the time I have her. ..?

Likely: If you stop now and abstain, most urine screening tests would be negative by the expected due date. If you are on a watch list through child protective services, the babies initial stool is usually studied and may contain residual material. Abstaining and avoiding passive exposure to others who are smoking is you best way to avoid issues. In my state, a positive stool separate you from baby. ...Read more
