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

If u have no pregnancy symtoms like tenderness on ur breast or sickness in morning as a regular time evening or morning still ectopic preg?

Yes: Ectopic pregnancy may NOT give any early pregnancy symptoms as the amount of HCG hormone produced is often very low and not commensurate with the age of an expected pregnancy.

My breast is increasing after 1year old baby. No pregnancy or period but I'm having sex?

My breast is increasing after 1year old baby. No pregnancy or period but I'm having sex?

Babies & breast size: Babies have a "tendency" to increase breast size in preparation for feeding the new infant. Post pregnancy that development does not always go away.

I am 5 weeks pregnant. I have no pregnancy symptoms at all except sore / tender breast. Is this normal and ok?

I am 5 weeks pregnant. I have no pregnancy symptoms at all except sore / tender breast. Is this normal and ok?

Yes, normal: One of the first and most common symptoms of pregnancy is tender sore breasts. It is a normal part of pregnancy and comes from the rapidly changing hormones in your body. You can discuss this and all the other changes of pregnancy with your primary physician and nurses at your prenatal visits, but it is likely nothing to worry about now.

Almost 5 weeks pregnant and still no pregnancy symptoms. With first baby had very sore breast and nausea at this point. Should I worry?

Almost 5 weeks pregnant and still no pregnancy symptoms. With first baby had very sore breast and nausea at this point. Should I worry?

No worries!: Congratulations on your pregnancy! each pregnancy is different, so not having symptoms does not necessarily mean anything is wrong. As you go through this pregnancy, you cannot help but compare it to your previous baby. Just enjoy each day and every symptom, (or lack thereof!), knowing that soon you will be holding a brand new and different individual!

No pregnancy symptoms, just have slight cramps about twice a week, two headaches, and occasional sore boobs. My period's due this week, am I pregnant?

No pregnancy symptoms, just have slight cramps about twice a week, two headaches, and occasional sore boobs. My period's due this week, am I pregnant?

We do not Guess: First, it takes about fourteen or so days for the pregnant female body to know it is pregnant. Thus any symptoms before these fourteen days have passed are not in any way pregnancy related. I am sure you know this simple fact, but perhaps have forgotten it. Second, we do not guess at diagnosing pregnancy. If your period does not arrive in a week then it is time to get a pregnancy test.

Negative test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. See a doctor to discuss irregular periods.

First step: Before worrying about an ectopic you need to see if you are pregnant or not by checking a home pregnancy test. An ectopic pregnancy will still cause a positive home test. If the test is positive then schedule a visit with an Obgyn to verify that there is a normal pregnancy found. If the test is negative then you are not pregnant

What does it mean if my veins become very visible and green on one arm/chest? There appears to be a bug bite as well.

What does it mean if my veins become very visible and green on one arm/chest? There appears to be a bug bite as well.

Superior vena caval: This should be looked at by a doctor. It suggests that the veins in the upper portion of the body may be obstructed, and that raises the question of why? Go and get seen and evaluated by your pcp. Best wishes.

I'm wondering why are my veins visible in my chest and shoulder area?

I'm wondering why are my veins visible in my chest and shoulder area?

Inherited: You probably are lean, low body fat, and lift weights or work out? Also, as we age, our skin thins with less collagen so we can see veins more, especially when we have fair skin color, inherit tendency. If concerned go see a vein doctor: www.Phlebology.Org or get a physical. After breast augmentation or other surgeries of the breast or chest, we see more veins too. Usually nothing to worry about.

Suddenly my chest and arm veins are very visible?

Suddenly my chest and arm veins are very visible?

Not concerning.: The prominence of veins through the skin is affected by many factors including levels of hydration and dehydration, body temperature as well as outside temperature, medications and even levels of stress. Fair skinned people tend to have more easily visible veins than darker individuals and hereditary plays a strong role also. In a healthy person, visible veins are usually not of any concern.

I just noticed my chest and arm veins are very visible but no pain?

SEE PCP ASAP: Prominent veins in arms and chest are a very serious concern. Should be checked for blockage of veins draining blood from these areas of body like blood clots or some mass pressing on large veins in the chest.
