Mom Jerking Off Son For The First Time
My sis step son calls me mom. At his moms full time she ignores him a lot should I stop him or just ignore it and <3 him don't want him to feel unloved?
It's OK: If this child feels that close bond to you enough to call you mom, please don't burst his bubble. He already is dealing with step and blended family situations and is likely feeling very insecure about who is who and who really loves him. I'd go so far as to tell him you just love when he calls you mom, and let him know your door is open for him to talk, confide and take comfort with any time. ...Read more
It does not always: Take a long time, I have had pts push the 1st baby out in 5-15 minutes while other women took 2 hours, once u have had a vag del if the 2nd baby is not any bigger it usually takes less time because the vaginal canal has been stretched out from the 1st delivery, but sometimes the baby can get stuck so your health care prof should be skilled enough to know that and when to do a section if necessary. ...Read more

What is the longest that a first time mom ca expect to push for? 2, 3, 4, or 5 hrs? Or no time limit?
Birthing Baby: I am sure your prenatal book that you have been reading during your pregnancy talks about this. But, there is absolutely no way to give you any valid or verifiable answer. My experience is that women are in general similar to their mothers enough that this can be a guide on what to expect. But, each pregnancy is different. Your ob/gyn will be able to assist you once you are in labor. ...Read more
What is the percentage of first time moms (age 28) miscarriages? I was told only 20% of 1st time moms carry to term, 80 % miscarry...
You have the statistic backwards. The miscarriage rate for first time moms is about 12-15% and thus 85-88% deliver. Now the risk of miscarriage goes up with age and older moms have higher risks. Since you are only 28 (peak age for fertility), you should do well.
If you have a miscarriage then the risk for the second pregnancy to miscarry is up to 25-30%. About 1/500 couples have recurrent pregnancy loss and miscarry over and over.
So, you should be reassured that you will have a great chance for a healthy pregnancy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why does my mom get different readings. First time its 140 then comes to 120 in a gap of few seconds. She takes it in digital machines.
Need to wait.: If someone repeatedly checks their blood pressure on the same arm two and three times successively, one would see that the numbers go down. This is not accurate, though, but more reflective of the repeated effect of the BP cuff on the vasculature. One must wait ten minutes before checking the BP again on the same arm. For quick repetition, check on the opposite arm. ...Read more

Hello, my mom, 69, was recently diagnosed with idc and was told it is stage 3. She has had mamograms every year and has been diligent about her health screenings. Is stage 3 advnaced and if so how can this be if this is the first time anything has eve
Idc: Stage 3 is not a very early stage, with significant involvement of the lymph nodes plus the size of the cancer. Depending on the biology of the cancer, a very agressive ca can grow very fast within short period of time. Also, mammo is not a perfect test. Its sensitivity and specificity are even lower when used in a dense breast. Combination of those two can explain a case like your mom, s. ...Read more

Does it make a difference being first time mom or not to the time between baby drops and labor starts?
I'm a first time mom. My daughter is three months. She just recently stopped napping and is not sleepijng good at all at night. Is this normal?
Babies need naps. ..: And so do their parents need them to. There certainly are babies who seem not to want to nap, but babies need about 3 hours of napping a day up to age 9-12 months. It is especially problematic if she doesn't sleep well at night either. There may not be an actual sleep disorder (almost any sleep pattern falls within "normal" for a baby) but discuss with your baby's doctor for evaluation and advice. ...Read more

Before I was pregnant I weighed 45 pounds and mow im 7 weeks pregnant and I weigh 163 pounds is this normal for a first time mom?
145 pounds?: I'm guessing you meant 145 pounds and you have gained 18 pounds in 7 weeks. Are you sure you have gained this much and did not actually weigh more before you got pregnant? If you really have gained this much it is definitely excessive. You need to talk to your doctor about your diet and exercise and the desirable rate of weight gain in pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more
First time mom. Do the new acog and joint commission guidelines mean I can't choose c-section? Planning on just this baby, done my research.

Not every OB dept. Is keen on elective cesarean. And some OB docs don't feel comfortable with it either. In addition, your insurance company may opt our of paying for a cesarean that is purely elective. ...Read more
I'm a first time mom and my newborn is a week old and she bumped her head on her crib. She seems to be ok though she's sleeping a lot but I don't know?
Get evaluation: It is unlikely that a 1 week old could have caused a bump on her head on her own, a one week old can't roll. This situation is concerning for some ptential physical abuse and looking at the fact that the mother is 18 y/o raises the risk. Please take this child to the doctor for an evaluation immediately, it may save a life ...Read more

I'm 38 1/2 weeks pregnant& baby hasn't dropped, I do get sharp pain in my prenium occasionally. I'm a first time mom, can I expect a longer wait for labor?
Might be Engorged: Sometimes when breastmilk comes in not only will the breast become full with milk but additional blood sometimes goes all the way up the arm or armpit (axilla). Relieve this sensation by stroking the breast downward toward the areola while either in the shower or leaning over. Refrigerated cabbage leaves are an excellent home remedy for relief of engorgement. ...Read more
