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. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

2000: It really depends on your starting weight. If you are at ideal body weight then you may need to increase your calories/day by 300 which is half of a very small peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Tuna fish is good in pregnancy and how much intake in a week?

Tuna fish is good in pregnancy and how much intake in a week?

Limit- high mercury!: Unfortunately our oceans (oxymetazoline) are polluted. Tuna is among the fish higher in Mercury, which is very toxic to developing babies. The US EPA says pregnant women can eat 8-12 ounces of light canned tuna/week but should avoid albacore. However, other experts feel it's wise to avoid all tuna in pregnancy- see http://tinyurl.

My water intake during pregnancy is usually very good, 8+ 8 oz a day. I fell short a little bit yesterday and today. Will that affect my baby?

My water intake during pregnancy is usually very good, 8+ 8 oz a day. I fell short a little bit yesterday and today. Will that affect my baby?

You are fine: If your intake fell to a point where it would affect the baby, you would have massive symptoms yourself such as light-headedness, thirst, dry mouth, etc. The system will steal stuff away from your body to give it to the baby first, so if you are low on something, you will deprive your body before the baby. Thanks for doing such a great and inexpensive thing for your baby - drinking water!!! ...Read more

Low intake of iodine through 17 weeks of pregnancy. Can I pick up the pace from now on or is the damage to my baby done? Prenatal vits don't have it.

Low intake of iodine through 17 weeks of pregnancy. Can I pick up the pace from now on or is the damage to my baby done? Prenatal vits don't have it.

Hmmm?: This is unlikely to be a concern unless you are taking medications that affect iodine metabolism (ie certain anti-arrhythmics). Salt is also iodized, people that eat a regular diet in america are rarely iodine deficient. A truly iodine deficient person will have low thyroid hormone and possibly an enlarged thyroid gland as well. ...Read more

I have not had a period in over a year because of the depo can I get pregnant and when would intake a pregnancy test?

Depo and pregnancy: Generally fertility returns within 3-6 months after the depo wears off. Your menses will also resume. If you active - I would wait perhaps 2 weeks after intercourse to determine if you are pregnant. So to answer - yes you can get pregnant as fertility usually resumes 3-6 months after the depo wears off. ...Read more

I read about a study about seaweed intake helping with two things: controlling HIV and preventing pregnancy. Any thoughts as pertaining validity of?

Total rubbish: It takes only a few seconds to make something up and put it on the internet. These people pretend to be persecuted geniuses, advanced scientific minds and so forth. Whatever they are selling is relatively cheap and people think, "A little money for something that might work." You're rewarding their lying, and if it fails (contraception is super-serious), they'll blame you and you can't sue. ...Read more
