Round ligament pain


Most likely you are experiencing round ligament pain. the ligaments that hold the uterus also connect low down near the labia (vaginal lips). Sometimes pregnant women feel they are getting "kicked in the vagina" -- usually round lig pain. However, if it gets bad or continues you should talk to your doctor to rule out preterm labor.

No


Unfortunately, first trimester miscarriages are very common. Genetic problems, and the shift of hormone support from ovary to placenta seem to be the causes for most. Sex and orgasms don't cause miscarriages.

There is no evidence


If you have not had any vaginal bleeding with this pregnancy, then there is no reason to fear intercourse could cause a miscarriage. Take folic acid 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life and practice safe sex. Remember than orogenital and anogenital contact is prohibited during pregnancy.

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage and congratulations on the new pregnancy. Miscarriages are very common and most early ones are due to genetic errors. Your sexual activities will not increase your risk of miscarriage. I encourage you to continue the normal intimacy that you are your partner enjoy. Good luck on the pregnancy.

Can harm YOU


As the uterus enlarges, lying on your back can cause it to compress the vena cava that returns blood to the heart. This can be harmful to YOU. Better to lie on your side.

Preg with 1st trimester Tsh 2.3,taking 50mcg thyroxine with TPOab>1000 & TGab=80.3 what should i do to save my baby? risks during pregnancy?

Levels okay


Your thyroid level is normal. During pregnancy we like to see the TSH level under 2.5. You should have your level checked every 2 months while pregnant. The abnormal thyroid antibodies have no impact on the pregnancy.

I ve taken almost 2 weak dose of ibuprofen. 400 mg while I m in my 1st trimester of pregnancy coz of my toothace.. Will this affect the baby...?

Dangerous


Dangerous to take medication during pregnancy without clearing it with your OBGyn. Ibuprofen is classified as "pregnancy risk." Dangerous to not treat an infected tooth. Pain killers don't cure infection, just mask symptoms. If a tooth hurts, the infection is pretty far along. As soon as you put the phone down after calling your OBGyn, pick it back up and call your Dentist.

Category B


Midol PM is category B. Category A means definitively no problems during pregnancy. Category B the there is no proven bad effect in humans. So most likely won't be a problem but we don't know about the other medications. Also the amount of exposure ( number of pills and how many days) and the dosis could be an issue.

Can't say no effect


Advice by most OB providers is that women of childbearing age avoid toxins always, for their own health, and avoid using medications, alcohol, etc. during the weeks between ovulation and menstrual bleeding. That approach decreases chances of affecting an embryo or fetus during the crucial early weeks of development of major organ systems. Making list of all exposures for OB provider is important.

No complications exp


Midol PM contains acetaminophen (tylenol) and an old antihistamine (benadryl). In recommended dose, no ill effect on the mother or the fetus is expected to occur. Other forms marketted as midol however, contain NSAIDS (naproxin, ibuprofen) that are not recommended at any time during pregnancy. Before taking any medications, including over-the-counter, herbal, or supplements, ask your obstetrician.

Yes, if necessary


Traveling in the first trimester is acceptable although not always ideal. In general, travel will be most comfortable in the first trimester given that your belly is still small in size. However, women should always understand that OB emergencies most often occur in the first trimester (miscarriage, bleeding, ectopic pregnancy). Knowledge of the closest emergency facility is paramount.
