What to do if I'm 29 weeks pregnant and just wondering around this time is there anything in particular that I need to be doing to prepare for baby?

Plenty of things: First of all, you must do everything during your pregnancy to eat properly, exercise, and follow your OB MD's instructions. Secondly, if this is your first pregnancy, there are classes to prepare you for childbirth usually available at the hospital. Thirdly, there is the small matter of the baby's layette and "stockpiling" diapers. ...Read more

What to do if i want to be an obstetrician when I am older but i also want to care for the babies, in the nursery after birth. What is that called?

Confusion: I'm afraid the 5 years it takes you to be an obgyn added to the 3 or more needed to be a pediatrician would make you an oddity. The shorter pathway would be to find a family practice residency that prepared you for this sort of practice in a smaller town setting. The bigger town you work in the more you must narrow your work field. ...Read more

Is it true that if when you were a child and your teeth where late then they supposley last longer ?

Is it true that if when you were a child and your teeth where late then they supposley last longer ?

Maybe, sort of...: Let's assume kids get cavities. If a child gets his teeth 4 months later than average, then his teeth have 4 months less time coated with milk, food, etc... Therefore, his teeth should last a bit longer. Also, if his baby teeth came in later and stayed later, then his adult teeth would have come in later. For the same reason (less time coated with food), his adult teeth should last a bit longer. ...Read more

If you have fibroid and you want to take it out and still give birth is that going to pose any threat to ur womb?

If you have fibroid and you want to take it out and still give birth is that going to pose any threat to ur womb?

It depends: On the size and position of the fibroid. If the fibroid is large and/or extends deep into the wall of the uterus, the surgery to remove it may commit you to cesarean with future pregnancies. This is because incisions made in the upper (contracting) portion of the uterus have a greater risk of bursting during labor. In that case, cesarean before labor is the safer option. ...Read more
