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

My wife had a cat scan last week and we didn't know she was 5 weeks pregnant. Do you think it will affect the child?

My wife had a cat scan last week and we didn't know she was 5 weeks pregnant. Do you think it will affect the child?

No, I don't : The radiation to the embryo would depend on what part of the body was scanned and other technical factors. However, the amount of radiation received by the embryo, even if the pelvis was directly scanned, will usually be less than 2000 millirads. This is less than the amount considered harmful to a pregnancy. Obstet gynecol 2004;104:647– 651. ...Read more

Im 5 weeks pregnant with my 5th child and have a uncomfortable pressure inside my vagina is this normal?

Im 5 weeks pregnant with my 5th child and have a uncomfortable pressure inside my vagina is this normal?

No: Vaginal pressure is not normal in early pregnancy. You need to talk to your OB as having had lots of kids, you are more prone to things like uterine prolapse (fancy doctor term for your uterus dropping down where it doesn't belong). If this is the case, your doc needs to know tomorrow, and if having any pain or bleeding, tonight. ...Read more

5 weeks pregnant (6th child) but constant period like lower backpain, tilted womb could this be the cause? X

5 weeks pregnant (6th child) but constant period like lower backpain, tilted womb could this be the cause? X

Speculative: Mid-twenties female with 6th pregnancy and low back pain likely has pain generated by hypermobile sacroiliac joints (sij) caused by pelvic mass, secretion of ligament-relaxing hormone relaxin, and 5 prior pelvic mechanical insults. Joint hypermobility syndrome (see brighton criteria) might potentiate this. An sij belt might help, ; an ostetrician should be consulted for other possible causes. ...Read more

I just found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant, but I've had 1-2 drinks five nights a week for the last month. What is the risk To the baby?

Time to quit: The most important thing now is that you stop drinking. I can tell you recognize this or you would not be asking. Chronic alcohol exposure in pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome. If you feel you have a problem with alcoholism seek help. There are support groups in every city. Congratulations on the pregnancy ...Read more

Perhaps not pregnant: Hi, it's unusual to be showing at 5 weeks. Did you do a home pregnancy test? Did you repeat it about 7 days later? Hpreg.T sometime show false positive. You should seek help from your health card provider. She can test you for pregnancy and for other causes of belly swelling. Please be proud of your pregnancy and don't be shy. Most couples don't tell others until end of first trimester (12 weeks). ...Read more

Im 5 weeks pregnant and don't need it what can i do at home?

Im 5 weeks pregnant and don't need it what can i do at home?

Don't need what?: Hi. You don't need/want the pregnancy? See the good people at Planned Parenthood to discuss options. Children are better off being brought into a world where they are planned for and wanted. And you can also speak with them about contraception options so unplanned pregnancy is prevented. Not much you can do at home at this point, unfortunately. Good luck! ...Read more
