Yay! I'm pregnant! Now how do I work out my due date based on the results of my blood test?

Ultrasound: It is not possible to calculate the due date from pregnancy hormone concentrations. A transvaginal 2 weeks after the anticipated menstrual period will yield a fetal heart beat and the crown lump length (CRL). Providers have tables that tell them into what gestational age a given CRL translates into and what the due date will be. ...Read more

I take Zyrtec once a day everyday for chronic hives. I'm pregnant now, can I continue to take it? Thanks!

I take Zyrtec once a day everyday for chronic hives. I'm pregnant now, can I continue to take it?

Thanks!

Yes: Pregnancy category B. No known risk to fetus. Generic cetirizine is same, only less expensive. How well does it work? Some people with chronic hives need 2 or 3 a day for control. There is a good chance it will go away in the future. Most chronic urticaria is autoimmune and not allergy. ...Read more

I had hernia surgery with mesh repair in 2011 i'm pregnant now due in sept i want to know about complications and if i will beable to have a c section?

Likely to have...: No complications. Depends somewhat on what type of hernia and where the mesh was placed. The mesh should be well healed in place at the hernia surgery site. A c-section, if needed, would also likely be alright as well and the mesh not as issue, but need to discuss in detail with your obstetrician. ...Read more

Had sex on July 25th with no ejaculation inside of me. I'm pregnant now & the doctor said my conception date is aug 4th. Can sperm live that long?

Res Ipsa Loquitur: Apparently so.Or,in other words"Res Ipsa Loquitur" (that's Latin for It Is What It Is, it speaks for itself, it is self evident). You might examine the 'no ejaculation inside of me' premise.My momma said a woman can get pregnant any time, anywhere, anyhow.And the book says a sperm can live up there longer than you think. Reminds me of the Woody Allen Movie"Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex" ...Read more
