When i lie down and my face is up on the bed, the fibroid in me shows like pregnancy but when am up it normal. My question is why that?

When i lie down and my face is up on the bed, the fibroid in me shows like pregnancy but when am up it normal. My question is why that?

Effect of gravity: When you lie down, gravity pulls at the sides of your abdomen, flattening your stomach. You also relax your abdominal muscles. When you stand up, gravity pulls all of your organs towards your feet, and you tighten up your abdominal muscles, "hiding" your fibroid. Also, it is possible that what you think is your fibroid is really something else (abdominal wall hernia). Show it to your doctor. ...Read more

Not accurate: There is no scientific evidence to support this kind of homemade test. Additionally, there is no research available to indicate how much urine or how much vinegar to use to make this test work nor at what is the best time to use the test. If you do not want to use a home pregnancy test or see md, you can wait for early signs of pregnancy: cramping, mild spotting, nausea, breast swelling in 1-3 wks. ...Read more

I have missed my period and took a pregnancy test and it was positive but started bleeding did the test lie and could the bleeding be my period ?

No: You are more than likely pregnant if you had a positive test. Some women continue to have bleeding during pregnancy like a period. In addition, you could be having a miscarriage, or bleeding from another reason. If your bleeding becomes heavier than a normal period or you start bleeding clots, you should go to the ER. Otherwise you should call your doc in the AM ...Read more

What exercises I can do in pregnancy to keep my back fit?

What exercises I can do in pregnancy to keep my back fit?

Core strengthening: Your pregnancy will take a toll on your core muscles. Studies have shown that fit moms-to-be have an easier time in labor. I recommend that you 1st talk with your OB about exercise but if safe, i recommend a regimen of back, abdominal, and external/internal oblique strengthening-- planks, abs, etc. Don't overdo it-- i highly recommend that you get a good pt or trainer to guide you. ...Read more
