What week does the 6 month of pregnancy begin? I am confused about what week does the 6th month of pregnancy start. I heard that it was 26 weeks 22 weeks 24 weeks and 23 weeks..I am ver confused.
Considering : Considering that a pregnancy is about 9 months long, if you divide the whole thing by nine, the 6th month starts mid-22nd week and extends through the 26th week. These calculations end up being different if you consider a month 4 weeks or if you consider a calendar month a "month" (usually 30 or 31 days). This is confusing for us, too, so that's why we generally use weeks when describing how far along a pregnancy is. A week is always 7 days, so it's much clearer. ...Read more

Primrose oil 200 mg I was taking it from 15 till 26 weeks of pregnancy. I did not know that was not recommended. How it can affect a baby?
No fetal effects: Sandra, there is no evidence that it hurts your baby. There is also no evidence it works during pregnancy either. Some have advocated it's use in pregnancy to keep blood pressure normal, or to help labor. None of these claims are proven. There are no well conducted studies on it in pregnancy but reported use has NOT found any adverse issues. Take your prenatal, stay hydrated, and eat healthy. ...Read more
26 weeks pregnant, I drink two or three cocoa per day, is it harmful drinking cocoa in pregnancy??? Thanks
Cocoa: Cocoa during pregnancy, for the most part, is ok if taken in moderation. Cocoa tends to have a small amount of caffeine, which can cross the placenta and increase the baby's heart rate, blood pressure, and affect the absorption and use of iron, calcium, and magnesium. So large amounts can affect the baby's health. I would try and limit your caffeine intake and maybe cut back on the cocoa to 1-2/d ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 26 weeks pregnant and have low-Lying placenta, what causes this? is a risk for pregnancy loss or life? Thanks
See OB/GYN: Sometimes the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the lower part of your uterus. This means that the placenta will develop in a low-lying position. This can continue to stay there and put you at risk for bleeding called placenta praevia. However sometimes the placenta corrects itself. Your doctor will likely check ultrasounds to ensure you will do well during pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more
