Time to quit: The most important thing now is that you stop drinking. I can tell you recognize this or you would not be asking. Chronic alcohol exposure in pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome. If you feel you have a problem with alcoholism seek help. There are support groups in every city. Congratulations on the pregnancy ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant, and I have sezuires. Do you believe that taking the sezuire medicine keppra (levetiracetam) is safe. I have absence sezuires meaning the smal?

Dangerous to sieze: While there is an increased risk of certain birth defects associated with taking antiseizure medications while pregnant, seizures themselves also also carry a risk of fetal harm. As long as you are on one of the medications with a lower fetal risk (such as keppra), continuing the medication is often the safer choice. ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant. I started having slight cough and wheezing. Is there any natural remedy for this. If I take any medicine will it affect my baby.?

Asthma!: Congratulations on your pregnancy. The medicines that we often use for cold and flu symptoms during pregnancy are considered safe, in general. I would hesitate treating this over-the-counter or with home remedies until you have seen a doctor.

A cold, cough, and wheezing might be an indication of asthma, bronchitis, or pneumonia. This can be worse during pregnancy. Call you doctor to be seen! ...Read more

I am around 4-5 weeks pregnant, I had a miscarriage at 4 weeks during my first pregnancy. So, my gynaecologist has aaked me take vageston 200mg twice a day for a month but I read online that is a class D drug during pregnancy. Is it safe to take this medic

I am around 4-5 weeks pregnant, I had a miscarriage at 4 weeks during my first pregnancy. So, my gynaecologist has aaked me take vageston 200mg twice a day for a month but I read online that is a class D drug during pregnancy. Is it safe to take this medic

Yes, safe.: Vageston is a semi-synthetic hormone that--in theory--supports pregnancy in the early weeks prior to the full development of the placenta which then takes over the job of producing natural progesterone. It's perfectly safe but not always effective. There are many other factors that can cause early pregnancy loss that have nothing to do with insufficient progesterone. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Changes in position: Engagement means the baby's presenting part, usually the head, is now down in your pelvis. Usually your abdomen feels smaller and you feel more pressure in your pelvis. Some women feel "lighter" and others feel difficulty walking or moving because of a lower center of gravity. Other women will feel pain as the head compresses the sciatic nerve. Sometimes engagement doesn't occur until labor. ...Read more
