Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Im pregnant how fast can I walk on a treadmill? Am i allowed to get hot a sweaty during my workout can I carry on exercising thoughout my pregnancy?

Go for it: As long as your obstetrician has no concerns, you can exercise at the same levels as you did prior to your pregnancy, especially in the first two trimesters. As long as you have no underlying medical issues, it is healthly for you to keep your fitness level up thru your pregnancy. Just make sure you keep up with your hydration and nutritional needs.

I am 8 weeks pregnan with twins i am extremely nauseous i cant keep much down i have started craving raw red potatoes is it bad for me to eat them?

No, they are ok: The nutritional value of a potato is actually greater when it is eaten raw. It contains vitamin C, B6 and niacin. Curiously, raw potatoes are known as a food craved by pregnant woman. Be very careful to wash the potato carefully. Good luck with the nausea (and the twins!) ...Read more

I am 11 weeks pregnant . can i eat Basa fish?thank you..

I am 11 weeks pregnant . can i eat Basa fish?thank you..

Best to avoid: According to the information I obtained, Basa is contaminated with antibiotics, many of which are banned in the US due to safety concerns. In general pregnant women are advised to limit intake of many types of fish due to toxic chemicals or metals accumulating in their tissue. you are still in the phase of pregnancy wher defects can occur. So I wouldn't eat it. Pregnant or not. ...Read more

I think I may have accidentally eaten a fruit fly... im 20 weeks pregnant can this be harmful to my baby?

Doubtful.: A little extra protein for you! And free, too. Raw meat is always a tad risky. Next time cook it first. Of course, if you have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fever, then that's another story, and get checked. ...Read more

I eat like a normal person but im still skinny.. I want to gain some weight.. I also hav astama problem so i can't eat heavy food.. What should I do?

Workup: Your physician may think it's worthwhile to check you for malabsorption / maldigestion (celiac disease, mild cystic fibrosis -- the latter's a thought with your asthma symptoms) if you truly can't gain weight eating. Or you may be light-framed but still able to muscle up -- here's brad pitt at your age, slim, fit and no body fat. Let your physician guide you, and good luck. ...Read more

Pregnancy?: If you had unprotected sex (no contraceptives) from the day before you ovulated to three days after, you could be pregnant. Women often have subtle symptoms even before a missed period. OTC pregnancy tests can pick up the pregnancy hormone HCG as early as 7-10 days after conception. If pregnancy is possible, do the test. Keep in mind that a simple G.I. upset can also cause similar symptoms. ...Read more

I am pregnant just found out a week ago today! last night I went out to eat and ate a peice of raw chicken. I am very scared as to what will happen. ?

I am pregnant just found out a week ago today! last night I went out to eat and ate a peice of raw chicken. I am very scared as to what will happen. ?

Most likely OK...: Raw chicken will not necessarily make you sick unless contaminated with the infamous salmonella etc... For the most part, even with contaminated with salmonella, many people don't get sick consuming it because of small number of bugs--stomach acid helps. So, it was last night and you are feeling ok now, you should be fine. If abd pain, n/v start etc, consult doc. Congrats on pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Doc why everytime I have a nice home cooked meal and i get pretty full i get so sleepy 10 minutes later . I weight 210 pounds im 5'7 am i obese?

Sleep medicine : This is normal. The autonomic nervous system is diverting most of the blood flow to the digestive system to work on digestion. Heavily proteinaceous meals will elevate the blood levels of certain Amino Acid like triptophan. This increases the synthesis of serotonin which will make you feel relaxed and sleepy. Reducing portions helps. ...Read more

I ate a lot of sushi and get food poisoning twice, before i realised that i get pregnant, is it will harm my baby?

I ate a lot of sushi and get food poisoning twice, before i realised that i get pregnant, is it will harm my baby?

Unlikely to happen: Food poisoning is more an issue localized to your digestive tract with secondary impact on how you feel & function.The fetus is isolated & protected from those events that do not involve the invasion of your blood with a germ or toxin, neither of which apply in this situation. To the extent you become dehydrated or land in the hospital it could complicate the pregnancy, but baby is pretty safe. ...Read more

Im pregnant  and when I am very hungry i get nauseous is that normal ? Also i get   really bad headaches but im allergic to aspirin , what can I take?

Try these: You may be experiencing migraines which could be a problem during the second trimester, and might be simply treated by inhaling 100% oxygen for a few minutes. I have been told that certain meds are safe during pregnancy such as vicodin, but would advise checking with your obstetrician about both treatments, as prescriptions are needed. ...Read more
