I had a miscarriage because my babies were in the same sac i only pass 1 placenta can i have a healthy baby getting pregnant 4 months time?

Yes: Did the babies die in utero and the labor follows? Even though it was a monochorionic monoamniotic pregnancy (same sac, one placenta), miscarriage of a viable pregnancy is uncommon. This type of pregnancy is at increase risk for intrauterine fetal death not miscarriage at 18 weeks. Usually, Steroids are administered early for fetal lung maturity and delivery by C-section at about 32 weeks. ...Read more

Boyfriend has diabetes, Will that put me at risk for miscarriage or having deformed babies? if so what can he do?

Boyfriend has diabetes, Will that put me at risk for miscarriage or having deformed babies? if so what can he do?

No: While a mothers health while carrying the baby is very important, the father has less input. In conception, the most fertile and healthy sperm swim better than any affected by the mans health, and little other than the genetic information is brought to the egg. Diabetes in the mother would effect the pregnancy and might produce a defect, but the fathers would not. ...Read more

Depends: Hi! Is this your first pregnancy? If you have had a miscarriage in the past then you may be at risk... However if this is your first pregnancy and your OB/GYN says you are doing well, then you will most likely do well :) Unfortunately a miscarriage can happen at any point in pregnancy. I do believe that exercising will help with your overall well-being. So does yoga and meditation. ...Read more

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. At this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. At this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

Chances are lower: Obviously twins are a higher risk for complications than a single gestation but with 2 very healthy heartbeats you certainly can breathe somewhat easier. Your OB will go over with you risks of twins at the various gestational ages but i would try to relax at this point. ...Read more

Till when should I rest if i had miscarried before 5 weeks from now? My back hurts sometimes if i lift 20 lbs babies and do house work and yoga

Till when should I rest if i had miscarried before 5 weeks from now? My back hurts sometimes if i lift 20 lbs babies and do house work and yoga

4-6 weeks: Decreased work load should be 4-6 weeks, but this doesn't mean you should be doing week 5 what you were in week 1. You need to gradually increase your participation in activities so your muscles stay toned and the transition back into full activity is easier. Light housework and yoga can certainly be attempted by 5 weeks, and then listen to your body's response, adjusting your work load as needed. ...Read more

TTC after miscarriage, my partner is diabetic could that affect us having healthy babies?

TTC after miscarriage, my partner is diabetic could that affect us having healthy babies?

Potentially: There are studies that suggest that in diabetic men, especially those with uncontrolled sugar levels, there is a higher rate of DNA damage to the sperm. This could lead to higher rates of inhibited pregnancy and/or miscarriage. It's best for both of you to maintain optimal healthy lifestyle while trying to conceive and keep in touch with your doctors. Good luck! ...Read more
