12wks pregnant. Hot water runs rusty until mixed with cold water, then all is clear. If I showered and brushed teeth with rusty water multiple times before realizing, could this harm baby?

12wks pregnant. Hot water runs rusty until mixed with cold water, then all is clear. If I showered and brushed teeth with rusty water multiple times before realizing, could this harm baby?

Unlikely harm: The only thing in tap water that has any significant potential to harm a developing fetus is a heavy metal like lead. Sounds like there may be a problem with the water heater rather than the water itself, but the way to know for sure is to have the water tested for lead and other heavy metals. You could get blood tests for heavy metals as well. Talk to your obstetrics provider about your concerns. ...Read more

I leaked a lot with my first/second pregnancies at 3months but not at all with this one-im 24weeks. Is that normal? *leaked colustrum

Breast leakage: Yes, this is normal. After a couple of prior pregnancies your body gets more efficient at managing all the changes that go on in pregnancy. Thus, you usually have less discomfort, labor is shorter, you are less likely to tear at birth, and your breasts become more efficient at lactation, which includes the early production of "pre-milk" (colostrum). If it is there, it is normal to leak. ...Read more

Pregnancy?: Have you missed a period? There are really no symptoms you have to have to be pregnant, you can have most of them with your normal cycle. If you were pregnant movement is not felt until about 17 weeks. Have you missed 4 periods? Home pregnancy tests are accurate, we use the same ones in the office. If you still think you are pregnant, go get a blood test at your doctor's office. ...Read more
