Is it okay to jump during a workout class during pregnancy?

Depends: So this answer depends on trimester and how your pregnancy is going. Many people can safely do high impact aerobics into second trimester than move to low impact.

Why is amoxicillin classed as pregnancy category (a) in australia and category (b) in america?  Is amoxicillin made with different ingredients in au?

There is no evidence to suggest that Amoxicillin will harm a fetus when given to a pregnant woman, but double blind comparative trials have not been done. There are no reports in case studies to suggest any danger. ...Read more

No other symptoms?: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… a visit to one’s ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Yes, safe.: Vageston is a semi-synthetic hormone that--in theory--supports pregnancy in the early weeks prior to the full development of the placenta which then takes over the job of producing natural progesterone. It's perfectly safe but not always effective.There are many other factors that can cause early pregnancy loss that have nothing to do with insufficient progesterone. Best wishes to you! ...Read more
