Either/ both: Sounds like you should be tested for both! please don't let this go on for long! eat smaller but frequent meals if it happens a lot, and get tested for diabetes (more than a finger check) and pregnancy. High glucose levels have to be controlled, and low ones can be life-threatening. ...Read more

Depression: Generally there are two types of depression. The first is dysthymia, which is a chronic type of depression that varies little in intensity, and major depression, which varies in intensity a great deal. Get a full psychiatric evaluation for what bothers you and consider medications that are safe for you and baby. Also, get a referral to a reputable psychotherapist that specializes. ...Read more

Yes : Babies can get the hiccups in utero which will cause movement exactly as you described. It can go on for some time and for some babies is recurrent throughout the pregnancy. Unfortunately you cannot do much about it but laugh. ...Read more

Im 10 weeks pregnant, and have been drinking Atkins protein shakes in the morning. Should I stop drinking them?

More nutrients: You can continue to drink the Atkins protein shakes. You need 4 oz red meat 2 X/week to make sure that you are getting all of your essential amino acids and iron intake. Eat 5-7 servings of fruit / vegetables daily. You can juice the fruits / vegetables if that is easier than eating them. A high quality, nutrient dense diet greatly improves the chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby. ...Read more

See your doctor: Patients who have gestational diabetes have a high risk of developing diabetes once the pregnancy is over. If your blood pressure is elevated and you have the shakes every morning, you should definitely see your doctor. Hypertension and diabetes are both treatable and should be managed closely by your physician. ...Read more
