Can someone be the father of a child born at full term on july 5, 2012, if the conception date was november 5/6, 2011?
Numbers don't work: The numbers don't work for a full term newborn @ 7/5/12 if the supposed conception date was 11/5-6/11. That would suggest a pre term baby not one at full term. Dna studies are the standard in questioned cases & most maternity hospitals have the information on available testing labs.

You: You will most likely be able to get pregnant, especially as you have had a normal pregnancy in the past. Your hormones may be fluctuating, which can be caused by stress on the body, or even by weight (too high or too low). After intercourse, lie on your back for 10-15 minutes with your knees bent up to help retain sperm. Be sure you are eating a healthy diet. Discuss any medications you are on with your doctor. If you still do not conceive, then see your gynecologist or a fertility specialist. ...Read more

There is a condition called familial macrocephalus which can be diagnosed with imaging, not requiring shunt. ...Read more

There are many non surgical alternatives that can be very helpful as well. ...Read more

My body temp ranges from 95-97.7 lately; feel feverish when v low. 21, v ill with pots-like symps since flu in feb (tilt-table test end of july). Can normal hospitals do blood volume tests?
Need to re-evaluate: Low body temperature can occur with low vit d3. Check 25-oh vit d3 levels not 1, 12 vit d3. Propanolol and bisprolol can lower BP too much and cause poor circulation. Alternate approach to pots is drinking electrolyte rich water, eating 6 equal meals, and avoiding high carb meals. Will power training by kelly mcgonigal very helpful. Exercises done lying down like the core program helps too. ...Read more

Not sure: Of what relevance a CT of the head would have. If you have tremors all over I would want to know what an EEG (brain wave test) shows. I would also like to know about your thyroid hormones an few other things. A CT exam would be relevant if you had a focal neuro exam or jerked on one side of the body. I rarely see a CT that does not show some sinus abnormalities. ...Read more
