Common Questions and Answers about Blood type diet during pregnancy


1230912 tn?1273496370 So this has me wondering lately and when I did a search, even online it came up with zilch! During my first pregnancy I found out that I have RH Negative Blood (A Negative to be precise) and of course had to have Rhogam during and after (she was a still born and I was in the hospital with infection for a long time almost missing her funeral-very difficult time.
Avatar f tn Working with a high-risk obstetrician will be in your best interest. There are many issues facing women with type-1 during pregnancy, but many have managed to overcome them and have successful pregnancies. You might consider reading the book "Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes" by Cheryl Alkon, and visit the "Diabetes Sisters" website ( for some detailed articles on various aspects of the pregnancy.
521895 tn?1212597611 I had two miscarriages before my first successful pregnancy. I had been under doctor supervision three months prior to my pregnancy and during the pregnancy. I had very tight control. The only complication was that my son was breached. That has nothing to do with my diabetes. My second pregnancy was different. I was very sensitive to low-blood sugars and passed out 2 times. Then, I developed acute anemia (not related to my diabetes) and had 2 transfussions.
Avatar n tn Speaking of pregnancy, blood clots, periods, etc.. I'm currently on the pill and currently sexually active with my long-term boyfriend. We are both aware of the risks of having sex and attempt to keep things as safe as possible. Unfortunately, the condom broke a few weeks back and our lack of trust in the 99% accurate pill led us to purchase the "plan B" pill..It's our understanding that it's intentions are to irritate my uterus, unabling it to host an egg..
Avatar n tn Now, I think I've developed oral thrush. I keep reading that you shouldn't take antifungal meds during pregnancy so what are my options for treating it? I will be seeing my PCP later today, but wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this. Also, is it possible that I would have also developed a vaginal yeast infection without symptoms? I've never had a yeast infection, but so far nothing seems to be unusual in that area.
Avatar f tn I'm 34 weeks and have suffered with several yeast infections during this pregnancy because my hormones are all out of balance causing the Ph in my body to be off. Antibiotics didn't work. I finally had relief changing my entire diet. NO sugar including bread &pasta. This feeds the yeast. Research candida diet. No scented soaps or bubble bath. While pregnant our discharge is more frequent, change underwear often to stay dry. Drink tons of water and 100% cranberry juice not fruit cocktail.
Avatar f tn told her that it's ok to drink red wine during pregnancy and that it will help her conceive. That the wine will help morning sickness and put her into a state of calm so she is more relaxed, therefor the baby is more relaxed,and that it will help her pregnancy symptoms all around. Is this true? I don't know, this just seemed very odd to me. I have always thought that any drinking during pregnancy was bad. But this Dr. is saying that it's actualy good for the baby.
147932 tn?1226969710 the doctors say it is easy to have an erosion on the cervix that can bleed a little during pregnancy. unless you are in awful pain and bleeding heavy you are ok. my sister had a rush of heavy bleading and lost some big clots at 10 weeks. katelin is now 10 yrs old. dont fret about it its all normal. people can have periods all through there pregnancys. after having an early miscarrage, let me tell you...
Avatar n tn While I agree that I don't promote or support the regular use of alcohol during pregnancy, we all do a few things not recommended (diet coke anyone) and we just have to weigh the risks each time. I personally do not drink. Not only because I am pregnant, and just don't care to even when I am not pregnant, but because I am on medication that won't support it. I agree on personal and responsible choice.
Avatar n tn , I would say there is not any muslim law for pregnant which should eat during pregnancy and they say it must be accordance with doctor's agreements. For "still a mom", I asked this question with internet experts(pregnancy experts) and they said that baby will pumped out anything it need to growth properly from mom's body, and you should take into account your general conditions. If you have headache or vertigo or any other unusual condition, you must eat and otherwise you can get it.
Avatar n tn hi i was wondering my dr put me on prometrium during this pregnancy has anyone else takin it while pregnate and had a succussful pregnacy the bottle says not to take during pregnancy im confussed please help
Avatar n tn ) but those 5 months I got chronic lower back pain during my periods. No pain during pregnancy with him. After I had him, I went back on the pill for about a year and then what do you know, came off it to try for a second baby and the pain came back. MAJORLY. Finally saw a gynaecologist who said he thinks I have Endo and that either the pill, pregnancy or laparoscopic surgery will reduce it. That was 6 months ago. I also miscarried before I saw that doctor at 4.5weeks too.
Avatar n tn I had to have a physical from my own doctor who had to sign some paper work from GHI and I had to have a blood test as specified from GHI Medical. I followed the 500 calorie diet religiously. I had plenty of energy to exercise which I did 5 - 6 aerobic work outs and 3 weight training work outs. I am a personal trainer and I was having an extremely frustrating time loosing weight after the birth of my 3rd child. Yes, I washed my hair and conditioned it.
Avatar n tn Anybody else experiencing horrible constipation. I know I can take milk of magnesia during pregnancy, but is it alright to take a dose every night before bedtime? It seems to help me a good bit, but I don't want to be doing anything to harm the babies. Yes, we are having TWINS. We lost our 4 1/2 month old baby girl on January 2, 2003, so I guess the Lord is double blessing us at this point. I hope everything continues to go well. I have very nervous about every little thing that happens.
Avatar n tn The reason that these are the primary concerns is that the baby needs proper nourishment from the uterus when first developing and then later on as the baby matures so as not to suffer birth defects or perhaps loss of baby at the end of the pregnancy. Both of these dangers are directly related to high blood sugar levels which can damage small blood vessels that supply the uterus, and so diabetics are encouraged to get very tight control over their glucose levels during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn First, target range for blood sugar in pregnancy is 70 - 120, with 120 being the maximum (at an extreme you should aim to never exceed 140). I assume you have a test kit to test blood sugar. during pregnancy it is important to test frequently. Generally I test, upon waking up, 2 hours after each meal, and also before each meal. My target before eating is 70 - 95, though usually I am in the 80s. My target 2 hours after eating is to be back in the 80s - 90s (though not higher than 120).
Avatar n tn Both went very smoothly, and while I did have to pay a lot of attention to blood sugar and diet, I ended up with 2 wonderful daughters. Please ask any questions. Hugs to you.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor and she checked my cervix and didnt notice anything abnormal and said that it was just my period and left before i can get a blood pregnancy test.(But the doctor was being really rude and rushing me and since i was bleeding while she was checking my cervix, i dont think that she could really tell).That night (Tuesday) it went back to brown spotting.
Avatar n tn I did this when having reactions in my sleep when overdosed on insulin during a pregnancy. The fatigue is probably from both the lows and the highs, for both are draining. It does sound as if she needs to be followed very closely, and insulin will be the answer once the lows are under control so they don't happen unexpectedly. It would be good if you do fairly frequent finger pricks to check her sugar levels. As for thirst, when blood sugar levels are either high OR low, thirst is common.
Avatar n tn Female bodies produce additional HCG during the menstrual cycle. So why not try the diet during that time. See if you lose weight? I don't follow the strict calorie diet but do adhere to the no sugar, no fat, no starch and notice I feel better and do not gain any weight. And best yet, NO EXERCISE haha, since the diet says to do no more than 30 minute walks, yoga or light weights in order to burn adipose or fatty fat versus the fat needed to protect the muscles.
Avatar f tn in fact, i will soon not even be taking thyroid meds and managing the disease by diet. Get a T3 blood test. Get tested for gluten intolerence. Do some research on Hashimoto and you will find this is nothing like any other type of thyroid disease. it is more of an auto immune disease. Hope this helps. Believe it or not Hashimoto is the most misdiagnosed thyroid disease and MOST medical doctors (even your endocrenoligist may not know how to properly deal with this disease.
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
Avatar f tn I took the 2 hour test again as a follow and low and behold I still have it. During the pregnancy I only got high readings if I was not careful well 7 months later I can go both ways now. Highs and lows. I am also nursing to complicated things. My doctor seems to not really care either way and I think I better search out a new one. I am not on any meds. My question is… what is too low? I have hit 59 without any symptoms. I am eating every 2 hours with 30 grams of carbs at each sitting.
Avatar n tn Hello, You may have Myotonia congenita,
325477 tn?1250554909 I have heard numerous reports that, though once wholly contraindicated to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy during pregnancy, it can and has been performed successfully on pregnant patients without complication to either the mother or the baby and should be considered in ANY patient who presents with gallstones. Basically, it's not done a lot, to where I would call it common---but over the years it's been performed more and more, and it's been relatively safe.
Avatar n tn I managed to get to 130 for my wedding, It seemed as though 153-156 ld stay each time I would diet during the earlier years. Looking back, that was a nice weight to maintain. When I was in my 30's I even tried the Ephedra pills during some of the diets. I really was not "educated" on portions, fats, carbos, etc. So, here I am, 50 years old, same height and 243 pounds. Never, ever in my wildest dreams did I think I would weigh this much.
Avatar f tn Everyone here can give you personal stories, but I think it is an important issue that is sensitive to each individual, depending on your pregnancy risk, your blood pressure, etc.
