So by my daughters head being small (in size) is there any possibility that it will grow at normal size later on in my pregnancy? Help and add details

Hard to say: There are normal infants that have small head size & this usually matches small body size. That kid would be expected to retain a small but normal head size at birth. Normal head growth reflects the need to accommodate the growing tissues inside. If something like the Zika virus injures the tissue, the head becomes abnormally small while the body remains normal. ...Read more

My head hurts and i'm having really bad stomachs pains are these symptoms of pregnancy?

My head hurts and i'm having really bad stomachs pains are these symptoms of pregnancy?

Ambiguity: There is no way to answer this. Headaches and stomach aches are found in nearly all conditions and illnesses. I would need more information about when you ovulate; when you have your period, and how long they are. Have you missed your period? Have you done a pregnancy test? It says you are a male? Are you sexually active? If so why are you not preventing pregnancy? ...Read more

I am 30w pregnant and my baby has been transverse with his feet to the l and head to the r my entire pregnancy, it it likely that he will ever flip?

Absolutely!: Positioning during pregnancy is a funny thing. A baby can be all over the place during a pregnancy & you may be wondering what the heck is going on, but then when it comes to taking care of business, that baby turns around & heads right out! of course, this is always a tricky business, but our systems are set up amazingly well to make babies efficiently. Only ask about position when labor starts. ...Read more

Possible: Sperm are good swimmers. There is always a possibility of her getting pregnant. Before you have complete ejaculation a little semen drips out. My advice is have her do an otc pregnancy test. If negative repeat in 2 weeks. If inconclusive have her see her physician and get a referral for a regular lab test. ...Read more

My bf only put the head of his penis in when we were fooling around. Said he tried to pull out before he came. Is pregnancy still possible? Im a virgi

My bf only put the head of his penis in when we were fooling around. Said he tried to pull out before he came. Is pregnancy still possible? Im a virgi

Yes, possible: "Tried" to pull out implies he wasn't successful. Ejaculation in the vagina or on your genital area was high risk for pregnancy, especially if you are mid-cycle. Get professional advice and/or go to a pharmacy today for Plan B contraception -- ideally with professional advice from a clinic, e.g. Planned Parenthood or your personal physician. Good luck. ...Read more
