Avatar n tn I recommend partaking in some sort of yoga or meditation group early on in your pregnancy. Staying active walking or just stretching helps you prepare for future delivery(the more flexible you are the easier it will be) . i also recommend meeting with a nutritionist and monitoring your intake on junk because everything you eat your baby eats so eat as healthy as you can. Prental vitamins are necessary. I prefer the gummies to the pills.
Avatar n tn lately there has been a lot of posts that fit my situation but I had a few more questions hoping you all would have some good tips for the last 2 mo. of pregnancy. 1st-I am very uncomfortable with hemorrhoids--but they are only bad, sometimes. I dont want to do or try anything crazy, has anyone tried anything that eased them? I do have BM's regularly and sometimes it feels once I am done that I still have to go and I wipe again and its like it started to come out or something and it burns.
Avatar m tn Target blood sugars in pregnancy are in the range of 70 - 120. I got put on insulin very early in my last pregnancy and was on it the entire pregnancy. I am now trying to get pregnant again and seeing my blood sugars have been higher than they should am now on insulin again. I believe your doctor is very wrong by not taking immediate action. High blood sugars can sometimes cause problems for the baby with a risk of heart and spinal defects.
Avatar n tn On Sunday, I figured out that I was about six weeks pregnant. The pregnancy itself is a good thing. Even though it wasn't planned, I am married and my husband is well aware of my drug situation. I was told I would not be able to have any more children due to my disease. But when I took that test on Sunday, I nearly had a panic attack. Why? Because I knew I had to get off the drugs. Am I an addict? Probably.
337111 tn?1266950223 Hi Ladies, I just scheduled an HSG- anybody have any tips for making it a not-so-nasty experience? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I have 33 days left and Im just so ready for this pregnancy to be over with. This is my third pregnancy so im hoping for the baby to come out sooner. Alot of walking helps but you should wait till you are atleast 36 weeks.
Avatar f tn anyone familiar or heard, know, experienced taking subutex while pregnant? i am now on 1mg per day and there is limited studies. please help.
Avatar f tn It was very unexpected and I don't know what to expect. I am 5 weeks which I know is very early but does anyone have any tips or advice??
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain. Last time I was put on bed rest at 8 1/2 months and that was torture for my sciatica nerve. I'm trying to stay active and strong. I've been going through physical therapy and things of that nature.
Avatar n tn No less than 3 months ago, I had nice rounded finger tips and now the fat pads are shrunken. I am thin and petite in my early 60s with a low normal BMI. I am very fit and work out lifting weights and doing cardio. Could age be a factor? No changes in any supplements any medication (which is minimal). Just curious if there is something I could be missing. I will discuss this with my own primary care doc and dermatologist.
936133 tn?1244832491 One of our most revered faculty members, Lee Archer, MD, a neurologist, provided a copy of the handout he gives to his headache patients. With his permission, I adapted it for use with my own patients. I thought it was so good that I asked him if I could publish it on my blog so that others could benefit from his advice. Headaches are incredibly common and usually frustrating for providers.
Avatar f tn I have some concerns First I'm only 7 weeks along and I'm already bloating and craving and avoiding certain foods is it normal to have such early signs. ? Secondly my daughter has a baby doll that she carries by the ears an head ... I'm concerned on if she'll try to do this to the infant ...do any of you have stories or tips on how to teach a young child the proper ways with an infant??
Avatar n tn When the hormone of pregnancy level (the hCG) is ~1800-2500 an early pregnancy inside the uterus can be visualized on pelvic ultrasound. Until an early pregnancy is seen within the uteres a physician must always be concerned with the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy. For this reason your ob/gyn will continue to follow you closely until a clear diagnosis is made. Best regards, Dr.
Avatar m tn I'm 20 years old turning 21 this year, taking my health care assistant course right now where i will finish up and hopefully have a degree by July as a health care, soon to have my own place, and hopefully be working in a facility before i am graduated from university. I have a very supportive family as my mom did have me when she was young, younger than i am now, we have a very close open relationship same with my siblings and step dad. i am currently single and just found out im approx.
Avatar f tn By that I mean either one beer with dinner, and about once a week up to 3 beers with dinner. If I am pregnant, could I have caused any damage this early in the pregnancy? I don't normally drink, so I'm extra nervous about this. I never smoked, never used drugs. I'm eating healthy, and I try limiting the consumption of processed foods. I'm sorry about the long post, but I have never dealt with a pregnancy or all these issues before.
1162250 tn?1294336600 5 weeks is a little early to be seeing anything. As for the spotting after the ultrasound, the wand could have just irritated your cervix. Next time you go in you'll have a better chance of seeing baby and a heartbeat. Congrats and take care!
Avatar n tn The Dr was too busy (naturally), but the tech came in and told me that I need to see my own Dr, as it is questionable if this is retained products of conception, or a new pregnancy. I would have thought it was a little early, but it is conceivable (if you'll pardon the pun). Plus, after intercourse, I bled substantially. (TMI, I know) The most recent time was only days before the US, so I very much doubt that a sac got to forming that quickly.
Avatar f tn Traning will help I ahve a dog and she is even sweeter then before you really need to mark ur space ceaser milan (spelling is right) has great tips and his show really helps
Avatar f tn I was the same I had a miscarriage in may and got pregnant in august now I'm 16 weeks and I'm still scared something can happen. Doctor says everything looks normal.
1287560 tn?1272220121 Of course there is nothing wrong to want to have another child, that's why I told you "don't stop trying". I think it could be amazing for Alfie to have a brother or sister !!! You will have luck !! The problem with the IVF is that sometimes you need to do one or more to have success, just a few people have luck in the first IVF, we have to be patient and work for our dream. Wish you the best !!
Avatar f tn Make sure your Pain Doctors will work with you and your OBGYN hand in hand so that you get the best care during your pregnancy. Make sure Pain Mgmt will do what's necessessary to control your pain as you get larger, even if that means upping your pain medication as needed, and in my opinion they may want to start titering down your medication during the last few weeks before the baby is born to lessen the risk and violency of dependancy.
Avatar n tn The best urine test according to everything I have read is the First Response Early pregnancy test, which can pick up Hcg levels sometimes as low as 12, but usually not until they reach 25. All and all you are looking at somewhere between 5 and 10 days. That is why most doctors tell you to wait 11 to 14 days and come in for blood work. I know the wait is unbearable, and I did do a home pregnancy test way before my blood work date, because I could not wait.
Avatar n tn He/she is providing the medical care for your pregnancy and your unborn child. This doctor MUST know everything. God bless you.
Avatar n tn Lately, I have been experiencing some symptoms of pregnancy; heightened sense of smell, nausea, tiredness, irritability, and some minor cramping. This has been going on for about 3-4 weeks. At first I thought my period was coming, but now that it's been some time, I'm not too sure about that. I have taken a couple home pregnancy tests, but they have both been negative. How reliabel is a home test?
254689 tn?1251183640 Too early for pregnancy symptoms. As I am returning your question on August 28, the question is, what was your beta-HCG?
Avatar n tn Hi. It's great to read that so many of you have the same condition and can offer each other support! There are so many success stories here! I don't have two uteri, but I had an HSG last week & just found out that I have a T-shaped uterus. We were set to start iui this week, but because it carries a risk of twins, we can no longer go that route.

Avatar n tn Hi there! I too am a young stroke survivor with left side weakness. The arm and hand are very frustrating, aren't they? Thankfully,I had my 2 daughters before my stroke, but my youngest was only 13 months when it happened. It took awhile for her to get used to me, but with some practice I eventually was able to change diapers, bathe the girls, and now 2 1/2 years later with some more progress under my belt, I can carry my 3 year-old to bed or short distances if I need to.
