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

Genetic issues: The miscarriages are caused by two main problems. # 1 genetic combinations by the sperm and the egg that are incompatible with life. # 2 the cervix has been unable to hold onto the pregnancy. Ask your md to determine which of many causes have occurred in your case. ...Read more

What are signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage if you haven't have your first period?

What are signs of pregnancy after a miscarriage if you haven't have your first period?

Back to School: Wow. Perhaps you are in need of a lesson in how your body works. Once the HCG hormone level decreases then your ovaries can reset and begin ovulation for the next cycle. You have already been told here today that this can take weeks to months to be healthy. Conception occurs if there is sperm ready to meet the ovulated egg at the next cycle. Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more

Give it 3 months: Any time a pregnancy ends (whether miscarriage or full-term delivery) it can take a little while for the regular cycle to get reestablished. If you do not have a period by three months after the pregnancy test returned to negative you should see your gyn for evaluation. ...Read more

Next month we will start trying for a baby.Had a miscarriage 2 months before at 1.5 month pregnancy. I didn't do DNC. Affects next pregnancy?risk?

Miscarriages: I am wondering if you know your MTHFR 677 and 1298 genes. Methylation issues due to variations (SNPs/single nucleotide polymorphisms) can increase your risk for miscarriage and birth defects. If nothing else, I would at least recommend eating uncooked dark leafy greens twice a day. Patients with MTHFR issues may need to avoid regular Folic Acid and regular B12, and stick to methylated forms. ...Read more

I didn't know I was pregnant and I pulled a heavy pool with water in it and my son, could that cause a miscarriage if I didn't know i was pregnancy?

I didn't know I was pregnant and I pulled a heavy pool with water in it and my son, could that cause a miscarriage if I didn't know i was pregnancy?

Wouldn't think so: Once attached to the uterus the embryo is rather well insulated against the normal goings on in a persons life. I've followed a jazzercise instructor through pregnancy that routinely went through more physical maneuvers than a Navy seal and never had a problem.Miscarriage, when it occurs is most often due to a problem with the fetus, not the incubator. ...Read more

Failed pregnancy. Baby stop growing @6wks. Which is better d&c or natural miscarriage... I don't want to have problem getting pregnant. In the future?

Failed pregnancy.  Baby stop growing @6wks. Which is better d&c or natural miscarriage... I don't want to have problem getting pregnant. In the future?

Depends: There are pros and cons to each option for terminating the pregnancy. A D&C is usually a better option if you just want things completed in a timely fashion, but there are surgical risks with this method. If by "natural miscarriage" you mean allowing your body to initiate the process, it is also an option. You may have more bleeding, it can take a month to complete and you still may need a d&c. ...Read more

Is it true that driving too much is risky for a pregnancy? It's my 5th child and I am 40 years old i had a miscarriage years ago but i don't think it had to do with driving

Is it true that driving too much is risky for a pregnancy? It's my 5th child and I am 40 years old i had a miscarriage years ago but i don't think it had to do with driving

If : If you are healthy and have no other illnesses, there are only 2 problems i can think of with driving while pregnant. #1 driving always carries with it the risk of an accident and injury. Bad injuries could cause you to lose your pregnancy. Make sure you always wear your seatbelt (under your belly once it gets big), drive defensively, and do not participate in distracting behaviors while driving such as talking on the phone. #2 driving for very long periods of time (4 hours or more) can put you at risk for developing a blood clot in your calves or groin. The hormones involved in pregnancy make your blood more likely to clot and your bent legs and slowed blood flow also add to the risk. Make sure you take frequent breaks (every 2-3 hours) to get up and walk and stay very well hydrated. This can minimize your chance of clot. Good luck! ...Read more
