Ovulation: If you're breast feeding this is common. If not its still common to have some mild ovulation dysfunction post partum. See your OB/GYN for an evaluation. The treatment may include a provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal and possible use of a birth control pill to regulate you.

How do we know which baby will be suffered from hgb e/beta thal disease? Any chances about my 1st baby?Bcoz we are e trait and beta thalassemia couple

How do we know which baby will be suffered from hgb e/beta thal disease? Any chances about my 1st baby?Bcoz we are e trait and beta thalassemia couple

It's random: Each time you conceive a child, a random assortment of genes from each parent goes into making up junior's genome. This is basic biology but still often needs to be reviewed. It's good for folks with any thal variant to take enough folate, (folic acid) but you should be taking that iron if and only if you are actually iron deficient or clearly need to supplement. Glad you're learning and proactive. Good luck. ...Read more

Should I be concerned if my Hcg level was 367 and I had some spotting? haven't had a period from bf my 1st baby so not sure how far along

Should I be concerned if my Hcg level was 367 and I had some spotting? haven't had a period from bf my 1st baby so not sure how far along

Somewhat: Spotting during early pregnancy is always somewhat concerning, since it might be the first sign of miscarriage. However, many women with normal pregnancies may spot. Within a week, your hcg should be over 1000, and then you'll be able to know if everything is OK by ultrasound. ...Read more

Im 29 weeks pregnant, fetus too small?(2 lbs.) should I be worried? My 1st baby only weigh 5lb.10oz at 36 weeks?

Im 29 weeks pregnant, fetus too small?(2 lbs.) should I be worried? My 1st baby only weigh 5lb.10oz at 36 weeks?

Depends: There are two types of small babies. Some babies are constitutionally small because their parents are smaller people. If you had a previous small baby then maybe that is your situation again. Other times babies are small because there's a problem with the placenta. Sometimes this can be due to conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes your doctor knows best how concerning the smallness. ...Read more

If my 2nd baby got pneumonia and she breastfeed at my left breast, does my 1st baby will have it pneumonia too if he breastfeet on my right breast?

Bf/pneumonia: I would not breast feed both babies at the same time and also clean both breast and your hands, after handling each child to avoid the other baby getting the pneumonia.Try to use an anti bacterial soap, rinsed with warm water. ...Read more

I've been having cramps lately but this don't feel like period cramps can it be a sign of pregnancy because I had the same thing with my 1st baby ?

I've been having cramps lately but this don't feel like period cramps can it be a sign of pregnancy because I had the same thing with my 1st baby ?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

My menstral cycle wnt from 28dys to 32dys after my 1st baby, also had a mass removed from my right ovary.I'm wondering if that can affect my fertility?

My menstral cycle wnt from 28dys to 32dys after my 1st baby, also had a mass removed from my right ovary.I'm wondering if that can affect my fertility?

Surgery may affect u: Going from a 28 to a 32 day cycle is not worrying. Any surgery on your ovaries, including removal of a cyst or other 'mass', may damage some healthy ovarian tissue containing follicles and eggs - so it can reduce your egg supply (ovarian reserve). Depending on your age see a rei specialist for an evaluation if ttc for a 2nd child for 6-12 months - up to a year if under 30, 6 months if 30 or over. ...Read more

Spotting : Spotting can occur when the hormones are in fluctuation, which yours most likely are. I am glad that you took a pregnancy test. If you still have concerns about pregnancy, please see our gynecologist and they could also perform a blood pregnancy test which is more accurate than a urine test. If you develop pain, bleeding, vomiting, or feel light-headed/faint then you would have to go to the emergency department. ...Read more

Im 37week pregnant and my stomach stays hard as a rock all day and it like a dull pain my baby is moving fine could this be labor? This is my 1st baby

Im 37week pregnant and my stomach stays hard as a rock all day and it like a dull pain my baby is moving fine could this be labor? This is my 1st baby

Unlikely: What you are experiencing is almost certainly braxton-hicks contractions, sort of mild practice contractions common in late pregnancy. Check in with your doc or midwife to be safe, but when you are in real labor it should be obvious. For now, taking at least 400 mg of magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate a day may help.
