Yes: It is not unusual for the baby's heart rate to be slower when it first starts (around 6 and 1/2 weeks generally). They will likely be much faster, around 160-170 BPM the next time you hear/see them. ...Read more

I'm 263lbs and almost 6 weeks pregnant what's the safest way for me to still lose weight and still making sure baby gets everything it needs?!?!?

Maintain weight: Would not recommend losing weight during pregnancy. Recommendations from the institute of medicine are to keep total weight gain during pregnancy between 11-20 pounds.

Not likely: In your case, while a c section might be needed that early, it would be better to do antenatal testing (NSTs and BPPs) starting around 32 weeks and likely cord doppler studies. Having excellent control of your diabetes will help also. ...Read more

Had a MMR vaccine on the 07/09/2012. My last period was on the 20/09/2012. I mam 6 weeks pregnant. What. Are the risk s of MMR to my unborn baby?

Probably none.: Pregnancy should be avoided for 3 months (per manufacturer labeling) following MMR vaccination. The acip recommends that pregnancy should be avoided for 1 month following vaccination with any of the individual components of this vaccine. Experience suggests that the actual risk is very low to none. Seek early ultrasound and mfm care to assess the fetal well-being and anatomy! take folate (folic acid) 1-5 mg! ...Read more

Greens and folate (folic acid): Seek prenatal care. Take a prenatal vitamin with folate (folic acid). No alcohol or cigarettes. Eat plenty of leafy green vegetables. Kale is a perfect vegetable for you. Practice eating healthy now as an example for your child: avoid junk food, sugary drinks, and large portions of carbs. You'll feel better and your child will be healthier! ...Read more
