Is It Normal That I Am Scared To Poop After Giving Birth
Yes: Your intestines take a while to get back to normal, so it may take several days for you to need to have a bowel movement. In that time, the stool can get hard and be difficult to pass. It's a good idea to take a tool softener until things are working right. And keep up your fluids! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is it normal to still lactate two years after giving birth? Or does that mean that I am pregnant again?
Not necessarily: If you are still breastfeeding its very possible to still be lactating. If your breast started to leak and you are not breastfeeding it could be a medication side effect or endocrine (hormone) problem.

Is it normal that I get sad and start to cry because of everything cause every little thing hurts my feelings, I am pregnant 16weeks can it harm baby?
Normal: It's normal to feel overly emotional and sensitive when you're pregnant. I remember crying at dumb tv commercials when i was pregnant. Feeling sad all the time, however, isn't normal. You may be at risk for depression and this is something i would see your ob/gyn about. It's common to feel overwhelmed when pregnant. Sadness and crying won't hurt baby, but untreated depression could. See a md. ...Read more

Best to take test if you feel it is possible you are pregnant, and also talk to doc about future family planning. ...Read more

I am almost 30 weeks pregnant and am experiencing a thick mucusy yellow discharge- does this mean I am dilating? If it does, does that increase the risks of my baby being born prematurely? Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
I am breastfeeding. How long does plan B stay in your system? I am worried about taking plan be and what it will do to my 6 month old. I am exclusively breastfeeding but worried about getting pregnant because now is definitely not the time.
Not a concern: The progesterone hormone in Plan B is safe to take while breastfeeding and will not harm your child. Exclusive breastfeeding will provide you with some protection but you might want to discuss with your doctor about going on the "mini pill" for better reliability. This is a better option that episodically using Plan B. ...Read more
Yes: If there is stool in your lower bowel and rectum you will push it out as you are pushing the baby down the birth canal. This is normal and common and we simply clean it up as it occurs. You can request an enema (or give your self one) when labor starts to minimize this from happening. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I finished my colonoscopy prep several hours ago but I am now just passing water. The odd thing is it is almost neon green. Is this okay? Am I ready?
Colonoscopy prep: Colon preps are designed to remove solid matter, green appearance to the exiting liquid is from bile salts residues that have dissolved in the prep and are being washed out. Your doctor will be able to see everything. Incomplete preps are from retained solids - this can be rectified by using a full liquid diet for 3 or 4 days prior to the prep to minimize the chance of retained solid matter. ...Read more
Im almost 38 weeks pregnant is it normal for my baby to have hiccups alot? Or is it something I should be worried about?
Quite common: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach with the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth.

Im going to give birth to my first child and im so scared im going to die while giving birh or have a hemorridge. Is this rare?
The small stuff...: Life on Earth has nothing that is 100% safe. So, we are all born, we live a while, and we die... that's life. Don't sweat the small stuff, as they say, or life becomes rather neurotic. In the U.S., about 1 in 6000 women die while having a baby, Annually, about 1 in 17000 women die in a car accident. That means if you have a baby every 3 years, maternal mortality is similar to automobile mortality. ...Read more
I give birth for 15 months already. But i still have a white discharge on my nipple, im not sure if it still a milk? Is it normal? Kindly explain.
I stopped breastfeedng my daughtr 4 days ago. Thankfully No engorgement yet but i am worried, is it possible it happen now? So i will try to prevent
Unlikely: #1 Congrats on breastfeeding--it is not easy! #2 After 4 days, it is unlikely you will experience engorgement now. If you do, a few things that may help: apply cooled cabbage leaves inside your bra, take an over the counter antihistamine (will help "dry" you up), do not pump or nurse as that would be counterproductive, but you may hand express a small amount in the shower if you need to. ...Read more
