How many months of pregnancy do you start showing?

How many months of pregnancy do you start showing?

Is she or isn't she?: Be careful who you ask! Many of us who were not pregnant have been asked if we were :). So it is risky looking at someone's belly and assuming she is pregnant unless she announces it. If asking on behalf of oneself, an expectant woman might notice a fullness in the second trimester. But trying to estimate how far along is best done with ultrasound estimates of the number of weeks of gestation.

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 you weigh 181 pounds and are 5'4 in height is it possible to start showing at 3 months in pregnancy?

If you weigh 181 pounds and are 5'4 in height is it possible to start showing at 3 months in pregnancy?

Depends: It depends on your body type and if you have had other pregnancies. At 12 weeks the uterus is at the brim of the pubic bone. Where your doctor can feel it but your tummy may still be relatively flat. If you are "showing" a lot ask your md about the possibility of twins or more!

I have been clean my last 3 months of pregnancy...my sure date is any time now....Will I have any issues with the baby showing positive for drugs?

Yes: The baby may have a withdrawal syndrome and your OB should be alerted to your previous drug use if he/she does not already know. Congratulations on stopping the abuse for you and your baby's sake.

How much should I be showing at about 3 months pregnant? I'm about 5'4 and 147 pounds and this is my first pregnancy

Not much: At three months, the pregnancy is still in the pelvis. First pregnancies often "don't show" until about 4 to 5 months. You should be taking prenatal vitamins and dha.

Can you be pregnant without even showing or really having pregnancy symptoms while still having your period every month?

Can you be pregnant without even showing or really having pregnancy symptoms while still having your period every month?

Just take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

Showing every sign of early pregnancy, but has had light bleeding the past 2 months. Took a hpt but it was too early to tell if she really was. Help?

It would be positive: The hpt will be positive at the time of the missed or "light" menses. She is not likely pregnant, or she could have become pregnant over the last 10 days-2 wks (that would be too early to tell)...

We have been trying to conceive for 2 months now had sex almost everyday, no pregnancy test but showing a lot of symptoms, what does bleeding mean?

May be period: Implantation may result in spotting, but if you are bleeding more than that, it may be your period. You may have sex every day, if you wish, but you may wish to consult your doctor about timing of sex to improve your chances. Time to do pregnancy test is 4-5 days after a missed period.

What all investigations are to be done in a female 7 months pregnancy and acute left hemiplegia. Mri showing acute cortical infarct in the MCA territo?

Echo and angiogram: First and foremost, a complete history and physical exam. Likely, an us of the legs to exclude a blood clot as well as blood work to look for a clotting abnormality would be next. Then, an echocardiogram and some type of imaging of the vessels in the neck and head. Since the patient is pregnant, an mra would likely be best.

It's been a month since miscarriage and I've been bleeding for two weeks straight two weeks after miscarriage. I took an equate pregnancy test and its still showing pregnant. Ultrasound shows its all complete. What's going on?

It's been a month since miscarriage and I've been bleeding for two weeks straight two weeks after miscarriage. I took an equate pregnancy test and its still showing pregnant. Ultrasound shows its all complete. What's going on?

It takes a few weeks: It takes a few weeks for the beta HCG level to drop after a miscarriage. If you did not have a D&C and aborted spontaneously, you should be getting blood drawn every week for a quantitative beta HCG level to make sure the beta level goes down to zero. Ultrasound is not perfect at diagnosing retained tissue. If you continue to bleed, you may need a d&c. See your doctor!

Would a blood test be any different than a home pregnancy test at this point? (47 days after intercourse 2 months no period) HPT showing negative

Would a blood test be any different than a home pregnancy test at this point? (47 days after intercourse 2 months no period) HPT showing negative

Blood test better: Blood tests are considered more accurate, That's not to say the home tests aren't accurate. More to the point, a blood test can give both a qualitative answer, (yes or no), but also a quantitative answer, (is the pregnancy advancing as hoped).

No period in 1 month and a half had pains everyday around uterus especially during sex. Pregnancy said no a week ago could I be and it not showing up?

Pregnancy: Pregnancy test over the counter are very accurate. However, you can be pregnant and the test can be negative if you check too early. You can test when you have missed your menses. In your case if you test again and its negative you can be assured your not pregnant.

Beginning what month of pregnancy will you be able to feel a baby move?

Beginning what month of pregnancy will you be able to feel a baby move?

16 or 20 weeks: With the first pregnancy patients almost never can feel the baby move until 20 weeks. It is uncanny to me how reliable of an indicator of gestational age that sign can be. With subsequent pregnancies patients can reliably feel fetal movement at 16 weeks.

Talk to your doctor: Any bleeding in pregnancy, you should talk to your doctor. Most women will have some bleeding in pregnancy, and typically if it's just a tiny speck or spot, it's nothing, but definitely call your doctor and let him/her know. Sometimes it's not even coming from uterus, but from cervix which is very vascular and can happen after sex due to irritation. Hopefully it's nothing, but call your doctor.
