Which Twilight Cast Members Are Pregnant
I was wondering if some sperm fell out on a tile floor can a family member get pregnant if they were to step on it?(after an hour and 54 minutes)
Are you kidding?: Do you really believe that someone get's pregnant in their feet? You are sixteen years old. You are not a child any more and are smart enough to know how babies are made. Sperm die in air. They do not cause pregnancy unless freshly left inside of a vagina. You do not need a physician to teach you how babies are made. But, perhaps you can read about this today. It will take five minutes to learn ...Read more

Got upset after family member said something.It really affected me n i cried for 2 hours.Im pregnant n emotional.But now im worried i hurt my baby? :(
27wks pregnant & my nephew have chicken pox. I had chicken pox when I was 3. I am just worried that it would harm my baby if a member has chicken pox?
Relax: Your fetus is sharing the antibodies you developed when you had cpx at 3, so neither you or your baby have any risk. Even if you never had cpx, the risk to a developing fetus at that stage (if it got it) is small. There are cases where minor skin scarring was noted, but cpx is not the big risk that many other infections are to a fetus. ...Read more
Is getting an epidural the only option for pain relief while you are in labor? I am 36 weeks pregnant and i don't want to get an epidural because some of my family members had problems with theirs. I was just wondering if that is my only option.
I : I respectfully disagree with what dr. Fowler states in her responses to you. I am an obstetric anesthesiologist and want you to be aware of all of the options available to you. I would like to first recommend visiting the american college of obstetrics and gynecology website at: http://www.Acog.Org/~/media/for%20patients/faq086.Pdf?Dmc=1&ts=20120424t1533385979 where you will find more information from obstetricians about pain relief during labor and delivery. The american society of anesthesiologists also offers an excellent outline of your options at: http://www.Lifelinetomodernmedicine.Com/anesthesia-topics/labor-and-delivery.Aspx i would be interested to hear what problems your family members had. As with all medical procedure, there are risks and benefits of performing the procedure. The benefit of an epidural anesthetic includes pain relief as well as a means to provide rapid anesthesia if an emergency c-section needs to be performed. The risks include bleeding, infection, temporary pain at the site of insertion, the need to replace the epidural because it isn't working right, and a chance of a headache. Obviously there are other risks, but these are the most common. Overall, options for pain control during labor are: 1) non-intervention. This includes breathing technique, massage, birthing tubs, and a whole variety of other childbirth techniques that are collectively referred to as "natural" childbirth. The biggest risk of many of these techniques is pain. However, the majority of children born around the world are born without the use of epidurals and IV medications. 2) IV pain medications. Generally speaking, these are generally reserved for people early in labor and are frequently discouraged for patients late in labor since many of the most effective medications (fentanyl and morphine for example) can all cause decreased breathing effort in newborn babies. It's not dangerous, per-se, however the general consensus is that it is better to avoid administering these medications too close to delivery. 3) epidurals and spinals. Generally women who have them are very satisfied as long as the blocks work. Most women who have had an epidural will request them on subsequent births. I've detailed the risks and benefits above. 4) nerve blocks (pudendal block). Many obs don't perform them and the blocks only help with external discomfort. They do not help with contraction pain (different set of nerves). We do not perform general anesthesia on laboring patients. Also, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) administration is not performed in 99% of the hospitals in the United States and there is little to no research on its use in women delivering babies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How likely am i to catch a cold frm a family member who i live with who has a child with cold symptoms.Im 32 weeks pregnant and worried of harming bub
Hard to say: Your relative susceptibility to any such process depends on many prior life experiences and your degree of exposure. Regardless, the risk to your fetus is minimal.Only those infections with the ability to enter your blood can cause harm to the fetus and a cold would not qualify. ...Read more
