Ruptured cyst?: It is unclear as to what happened. Your girlfriend needs to see a gyn as soon as possible. Need to make sure that nothing serious is going on. Clearly needs a pelvic exam and possibly an ultrasound. Call tomorrow and be seen soon.

Who baby comes out being healthier a baby who mommy retained a lot of water or a baby who's mommy only gained the weight the baby gained during pregnan?

Confusing question: During pregnancy, a woman puts on the weight of the baby, the amniotic fluid, the placenta and umbilical cord. The common range is 20-25 pounds, but some gain more or less. If mom only gains the weight of the average 7.5 lb baby she is unhealthy. Some retained leg water is expected when baby mass slows blood flow in the pelvis. ...Read more

Can a person dilate fully to 10cm during pregnancy and not know? Can waters break and a person misses it somehow?

I'm 5months pregnanet I drinking 10 glasses of water&dissolve 2teaspoon glucon-D in a normal routine day, so is it any side effects of my baby and me?

Why take Glucon?: If you are not diabetic it probably does not cause harm but it is not clear why you are taking Glucon-D. It is a highly concentrated Glucose supplement. There is not a clear health benefit of using this. If you are worried about low blood sugar discuss with your doctor so that testing can be done. Drinking juice or eating food would likely have more beneficial effects ...Read more

Can a doctor tell if there is water on a unborn baby the mother is only 15 weeks preganant?

Can a doctor tell if there is water on a unborn baby the mother is only 15 weeks preganant?

Question is unclear: But 15 weeks is early to detect problems with the baby, which is why we wait until about 20 weeks to do a "level 2" ultrasound exam to screen for problems. This is simply a very careful and thorough ultrasound exam. At 15 weeks a positive exam is significant, a negative exam is not. ...Read more

I'll be 35 weeks pregnant tomorrow I carried in a 24 pack of waters and started to get tightness/pains on both my sides and stomach. What's wrong?

Pulled muscle: You probably pulled some abdominal muscles. Alert your OB doctor, but unless you're having these pains in a rhythmic fashion, they're not contractions. At this point in your pregnancy you need to go easy on yourself. ...Read more

I'd it safe to swim in chlorinated water pool during pregnancy? And go to water parks staying in water for hours? I'm 13 weeks pregnant

Ok: Yes, it's ok. Don't do anything that would force water into the vagina, such as some of the higher slides. Also don't get overheated in a hot tub/pool - this can be like having a fever and is not particularly good for your baby. ...Read more

I have balanits and I'm at a water park, but I am not sure if it is safe to go in the water since it has chlorine.

I have balanits and I'm at a water park, but I am not sure if it is safe to go in the water since it has chlorine.

All water has CL: So if you are bathing you have already been exposed. Of course the levels are higher, so you should just go in for a minute or two to see if it bothers you and if it does, go and rinse off in the shower immediately.
If you HAPPEN to have any vaseline or zinc oxide with you, you could try putting this on first; but fair warning that though it may protect you, could also leave oil spot on trunks. ...Read more

I recently found out I am pregnant. I have a trip coming up to Universal Studios Orlando which I will be between 6 and 7 weeks (from the start of my last period) pregnant. I would like to know if it is safe to ride the rides at the park?

I recently found out I am pregnant. I have a trip coming up to Universal Studios Orlando which I will be between 6 and 7 weeks (from the start of my last period) pregnant. I would like to know if it is safe to ride the rides at the park?

It depends: "Safety" on the rides is a matter of opinion when you are pregnant. Although the rides themselves are rated "safe" for use many of the rides produce gravitational forces that may initiate bleeding or cramping in pregnancy. If you are already experiencing cramping or bleeding prior to the trip, consult your treating OB MD's advice prior to departure. ...Read more
