Up to a week: Many viral illnesses that would last 24-48 hr in an adult will remain symptomatic in toddlers for a week. As long as they keep up with their fluid needs (wet at least every 6-8 hr) their system will usually self heal. A worsening of symptoms or change in behaviors may indicate a new secondary infection requiring a recheck. ...Read more

Are darkened areolas a reliable symptom of pregnancy at 6/7 dpo? Or too early? I weaned my toddler a month ago. I just noticed this change today.

Are darkened areolas a reliable symptom of pregnancy at 6/7 dpo? Or too early? I weaned my toddler a month ago. I just noticed this change today.

Patience: No. At 6-7 days after ovulation, there is no sign or symptom that says there is a pregnancy, and there is no sign or symptom that says there is not a pregnancy. It is too early for one to be thinking about pregnancy. A woman can start thinking about pregnancy if her period is missed, about 2 weeks after ovulation, and do a home pregnancy test a few days after that. Patience is a blessing. ...Read more
