Why Am I Craving To Have A Baby So Much
Great question: There are so many possibilities. Some people are born mothers and having a baby will help them feel complete, but sometimes craving a baby is symptom of something, like insecurity in a relationship. If craving a baby is so intense that it's interfering in your life, or that you're very disturbed by it, you might want to seek a psychological evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, im viktoria. I just want to ask what am i going to do for my first pregnancy? I just want my baby to be very healthy as much as possible.

No brakes: Alcohol is a depressant which especially tends to impair portions of our brain which serve as the "brakes" in slowing down a variety of strong impulses. When those impulses are not slowed down by the "rational" processes that most of us consider before acting on them, they can feel stronger. Our experience of sex drive, anger, fear--a lot of impulses and emotions can be amplified in this way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do I have so much gas lately?! ok lately I have had so much gas, it is crazy and it smells horrible. Sorry to be so graffic. My eating habits have not gotten worse, a little better in my opinion. I have been eatting a banana a day and drinking water.
Intestinal : Intestinal gas is formed when undigested material -- usually carbohydrates -- reaches your colon, where bacterial fermentation produces gases: mainly methane, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. You mentioned that you were eating "a little better." often that means your fruit, vegetable and fiber intake has increased, and these foods are notorious for producing more gas. You could also be developing lactose intolerance (it's actually quite common), a condition characterized by an inability to digest milk sugar, which then becomes another carbohydrate source for bacterial fermentation. There are several options. Beano, an over-the-counter enzyme that helps break down starches, is particularly helpful for reducing gas caused by legumes (beans, peas, peanuts) and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, etc.). If you think you're lactose intolerant, avoid dairy products and use lactaid (the lactase enzyme that breaks down lactose). You could also try "re-adjusting" your intestinal bacteria by taking a probiotic supplement, available at any health-food or natural supplement store. Get a probiotic with at least 4 different strains of organisms, and buy from a store that keeps their probiotics refrigerated (they last longer). Probiotics take a week or two to re-colonize your colon. Finally, digestive enzymes -- also available at supplement stores -- may improve the breakdown of food in your upper intestine and prevent undigested material from reaching your colon. Hope that all helps. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It's about body fat: Your abs are under there somewhere but in order to see them the overlying fat on your abdomen needs to be real thin. If you push your diet and exercise you may get there but it's tough and some will never get there due to genetic reasons. Your body fat percentage needs to be in the single digits and for some, getting there means dieting too much, to the brink of harm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Change: You need to change. Try asking yourself this question before eating sweets: "does this (fill in the blank) taste as good as being this feels?" also, try writing down in a journal everything you eat or drink for one week. If you are honest with your entries, you will soon tire of writing down the foods you shouldn't be having, and you will alter your behavior accordingly. Finally, stick with it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am pregnant and I have decide to have a vaginal birth but I am so embarrassed to poop on the table . How can I stop this ?
Do not worry: Having a vaginal birth is an excellent choice and very natural. I would not stress about "pooping" on the table, as if that occurs, such is life. The nurses and doctors are very used to this and it is really not a big deal.. Trust me when i tell you, during the labor process, pooping on the table will be the farthest thing from your mind. Congratulations and best wishes! ...Read more
