Should I be showing at 5 weeks pregnant and my second child ?

Should I be showing at 5 weeks pregnant and my second child ?

Depends on lots: If a woman has had a bigger uterus than expected, it could be due to being farther along, having more than one baby, or having benign growths like fibroids of the uterus. Ultrasound would be useful in these cases. Also the abdominal wall might not be as firm as during the first pregnancy especially if mom is busy with family. ...Read more

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

I’m 15 weeks pregnant with my second child, at what point should I stop carrying my toddler? I’m 15 weeks pregnant with my second child. I still carry my toddler quite a bit, but am starting to get nervous that its too much weight to be lifting. At what p

When : When you’re pregnant, your toddler, who has been your baby, may be clingier than ever, so you may find yourself lugging around a thirty pound potato sack of love in addition to ten pounds of extra belly. You may find that the additional strain of carrying your toddler and your baby pushes you over the edge. It’s not the exercise that’s the problem. As long as you’re in good shape, you can continue to lift weights, run, or do yoga or pilates, as long as you’re not on limited restriction because of a pregnancy complication. The key is preventing unnecessary strain on your back. If you do lift your toddler, make sure you bend your knees to reach down, rather than leaning over and pulling the child up, putting additional strain on your back. If you notice pain in your back, it’s probably time to explain to your toddler that mommy needs to rest her body so she doesn’t get hurt. Although most women find it challenging to lift their toddlers beyond the third trimester, there’s no specific gestational age at which you must stop carrying your child. It depends on your strength and flexibility, as well as your child’s weight. Listen to your body, and if your body starts whispering that it’s time to quit lifting your child, don’t wait until your body begins to yell. Sit down on the sofa and snuggle your toddler instead, assuring your child that there will always be room in your heart to love two babies. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if my 5 year old daughter just caught the chicken pox. I am 23 weeks pregnant and currently waiting on a phone call back from the dr. Is my baby at risk?

Should i be concerned if my 5 year old daughter just caught the chicken pox. I am 23 weeks pregnant and currently waiting on a phone call back from the dr. Is my baby at risk?

Depends: If a pregnant mother has had chicken pox already in the past, there is little risk to her pregnancy when coming in contact with an individual with chicken pox. If she has not had chicken pox, then a doctor may administer a post-exposure prophylaxis within 96 hours that can be effective to limit any transmission of chicken pox to the fetus. ...Read more

C-section for sure: Ob practice has changed. Vaginal birth after c-section (vbac) was popular 15-20 years ago. Current literature indicates increased risk of uterine rupture with vbac. Given the contentious medical malpractice with deliveries that are not "perfect", as well as the literature cited above, vbac has become a thing of the past. ...Read more

No!, No risk: A far bigger risk to your baby is getting any of the diseases you were just vaccinated against. That was one of your first acts of selflessness among many that come with being a parent. Don't go online to get the answers to your questions.You can't replace years of training with "reading everything on the internet". Use the internet to get the questions to ask your doctor, not the answers. ...Read more
