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

How far along do I need to be to test positive on a urine pregnancy test at the doctors office?

Pregnancy: If you have regular menstrual cycles, a pregnancy test will be positive soon after your missed period (1-3 days). Some tests may detect things earlier. You can check a urine pregnancy test at home if you are concerned at all and have a blood pregnancy test at your doctor's office to confirm the pregnancy. ...Read more

Took 2 pregnancy test came back positive with faded line... Made doc appointment but I feel fine no symptoms?

Pregnant: It certainly is good that one feels fine after two positive pregnancy tests, but that doesn't change the fact that one is pregnant. Best to keep your appointment with your doctor, but get seen sooner if any vaginal bleeding, fever, or pain. Good luck! ...Read more

Took a pregnancy test came out positive. When I go for doctors appointment do they use that stick that goes in you to hear the heartbeat?

Yes: Most OB doctors will perform an internal ultrasound to measure the gestational sac to check the progression of the pregnancy compared to the date of last period, look for fetal heart beat (good sign of a viable pregnancy) and make sure the pregnancy is in the uterus and not in the tube which can be a problem. ...Read more

Early u/s: If the first day of your last normal period was July 20, and you have a positive test then the reason they did not see anything in U/S was because it is too early. Did they ask you to come back next week to rescan you? ...Read more

How long after I conceive will I be able to get a positive pregnancy test at a doctors office?

How long after I conceive will I be able to get a positive pregnancy test at a doctors office?

Pretty quick...: Pretty quick probably as soon as you notice a missed period, but if you want to do a stealth attack on that poor little thing growing in there, then, depending on the test, about 10 days. Why? You taking bets? BTW, a commercial, over-the-counter urine test is pretty good. And just think, instead of waiting at the doctor's office you can wait in line at Rite-Aid! ...Read more

A doctors post on here said you can get a positive pregnancy test result before implantation. How?  Explain...

Too early to be +ve: Implantation happens about a week after ovulation but before you can get a positive home pregnancy test or blood pregnancy test. An implanting embryo is making tiny amounts of pregnancy hormone (HCG) but not enough to detect in your blood or your urine, until the levels get higher about 10 days to 2 weeks after ovulation — three days or fewer before your missed period if you're regular. ...Read more

Hi, I had a question doc.If a urine pregnancy test is faint positive ... Should it get darker... If not aftr being 6 days overdue... Means what?

Hi, I had a question doc.If a urine pregnancy test is faint positive ... Should it get darker... If not aftr being 6 days overdue... Means what?

Faint + is positive: The currently available home pregnancy test kits are highly accurate and easy to do, though they are not perfect. But, seeing a faint positive line is highly likely that you are pregnant. If u want a quick sure answer, do another test, use different brand. Retest in 3-5 days will likely give strong positive. Start your prenatals, eat well/exercise regularly, and consult doc congrats and good luck. ...Read more

Blood test: If the urine test is faint then it means the hormone level is really low. This could just be because the test was taken early. Simply repeat in a few days or take a blood bhcg test. ...Read more

Unlikely: The urine tests for HCG levels that are the most sensitive tests for pregnancy. At your age the chances of you achieving a pregnancy is extremely low. If you want to totally confirm get a blood level or get a fsh level to see if you are menopausal and are not having periods any longer. ...Read more

Pregnancy test positive.week 4 n 3days! But I can't visit doc until my hubby comes home.n his coming on 9th week of my pregnancy.is it ok?

Yes, its ok: Waiting until your 9th week to see your doc will most likely not hurt you or your baby. It would be best to start taking pre-natal vitamins that contain folic acid even before you see your doc. We often like to see you sooner to arrange an early ultrasound and review your history but it doesn't frequently change the pregnancy outcome. Best wishes! ...Read more

Cytomegalovirus during pregnancy! Hello, I'd like to know if some of you doctors could help me with a doubt. I've been reading a lot about this virus since I got a non recent positive, and I am pregnant.
When I took the test I had 15 weeks of pregnancy a

I : I am sorry that you have had to worry about this. Cytomegalovirus in pregnancy, in approximately 90% of cases, does not cause significant problems but the children should be screened for hearing/vision to be sure it's ok. In most cases there is no problem. In 10% of cases, there is a problem in early pregnancy that can cause miscarriage. The odds are positive overall based on the literature, but please also talk to your OB to put your mind at rest. ...Read more

Doctors urine pregnancy test was positive but line faded to a very faint line after couple of minutes am i pregnant? I'm confused?

Doctors urine pregnancy test was positive but line faded to a very faint line after couple of minutes am i pregnant? I'm confused?

Probably yes: The light color reflects (if not an old test) a lower level of the pregnancy hormone beta hcg. Earlier the pregnancy the lower the level and the fainter the line. Any line (in addition to the control line which is generally very dark) suggests pregnancy is present. Check again in a week if unclear or unsure. ...Read more

Hi doc! My pregnancy test showed me positive but the other line is faint!am i really pregnant? Im delayed for 12days and have spotting 4 days!

Most likely yes: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If the test result is only a faint positive line, a woman can repeat the test after 1 more week to confirm. ...Read more

Positive pregnancy tests neg blood test but the home test line are getting darker doc won't do anything else? Am i pregnant

Depends: If you had unprotected sex since you last period and missed a period, you could be pregnant. If the blood test was done after a missed period and it was negative, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You should read the instructions for the urine test carefully and read the result within the prescribed time frame. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
