Avatar n tn Hello, I am 6 weeks pregnant and unfortunately i am not immune to the Toxoplasma virus, since i was found negative to it, both now and in the past. I raise 3 lovely cats and know that this means that my Husband needs to be in charge of cleaning their litter box (which they don't have now since we have a back yard). I would like to know if other then not cleaning cat's litter box, should a pregnant woman be careful of kissing or hugging her cats?
Avatar f tn The worry is toxoplasmosis which is a micro organism which can be contained in some cats with no signs. I have 6 cats and am a veterinary technician. Have someone else clean the box or wear gloves. You will be fine.
Avatar f tn If your cat had her uterus removed and an ovary was left behind and somehow some sperm reached an egg, she would have an ectopic pregnancy (it's kind of funny to talk about this in relation to cats) and would need medical help when the kitten is ready to come out. It would probably take an X-ray to determine whether she is pregnant, though.
Avatar n tn One has just entered the house and vomited what appears to be a dead mouse. Now I know that there is a huge risk in pregnancy with toxyplasmosis with cat faeces but wondered what risk this poses? I have gone upstairs in my house awaiting my mum to arrive to clear the vomit in case it is risky for me. But is there anything else I need to do to reduce the risk of the disease in this circumstance?
7558356 tn?1410718909 Here are some of the more common, as well as some of the weird and unusual signs of impending labor. Once you reach 37 weeks of pregnancy, baby is considered term and at 40 weeks, full term - but it's still not unusual to go as far as 42 weeks.The last weeks and days can really stretch, especially when you're looking for any sign that something is beginning to happen.Here is a list of some of the signs that may indicate labor is either about to start or will be starting in the next few days.
Avatar f tn But my husband has researched worms in cats a billion times, and from what I understand, the way that cats get worms is by eating dead fleas. Worms have a two-stage life cycle. One is by being eaten by a flea, and two is being eaten by the cat. (Not sure how this works, but this is what I'm told!) So that being said, humans can't get worms from cats.

562815 tn?1222055860 It's possible (although not likely) that she didn't conceive when she was bred and is having a false pregnancy. Cats and dogs that have false pregnancies exhibit all the signs that an animal having a normal pregnancy would, but the fact that you say she is acting like she's in season again is odd. It certainly bears looking into. If she is pregnant, it would have been safer to spay her and abort the litter than it would be for a cat that young to deliver a litter.
Avatar n tn My husband and I would like to have a child, but are unsure about my health issues and pregnancy. My stroke was due to a dissection in my left vertebral artery and I have been told that it has healed completely. However, I experience dizziness and unwell feelings around menstruation, which I'm sure is due to hormones, which makes me nervous about pregnancy. Any information would be helpful. I have looked on the internet and have not really found anything.
377493 tn?1356505749 Sometimes it's so hard to keep up with where everyone is at. So time to update us! Where are you at in your pregnancy or ttc efforts? Anything new to fill us in on? I'll start.. As many of you know my pregnancy sadly ended in m/c. I had a D&C last week, and now am waiting for signs of O to try again. There were no complications, so we are not going to wait one cycle. I have a follow up with my OB in the morning.
1123420 tn?1350564758 Gabe was in the hospital twice as a newborn...once to be check because he had long pauses in his breathing and once becuase he was running a high fever and they wanted him to have fluids. I know it's scary but atleast he's in good hands and they will do everything possible to get him better faster. If you feel the doctors aren't being up front and honest with you, then you can request they sit down and explain his test results and what their ideas are.
572651 tn?1531002957 Back in 97' I had just lost my baby due to a partial molar pregnancy and was in a horrible mental state. This little furball appeared on my doorstep .She was so sickly.But I nursed her back to health and she has been my liite fur angel ever since.
Avatar f tn / i just don't know if it's worth it. I mean wouldn't there be signs in her stool. It is not dark at all. What do you all think.
Avatar f tn I'm 38 weeks pregnant and having a hell of a time with my 20 odd week old labrador, i have a two year old and my boyfriend, now getting a dog was my idea but jeez if i knew what i was letting myself in for.. she's got fleas for a start now we've combed her everyday, used flea drops even the one that costs twice as much from the vets..
Avatar n tn I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms. My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma.
Avatar n tn You'll probably notice signs of impending menopause, such as menstrual irregularity, sometime in your 40s. But some women notice changes as early as their mid-30s.") ...just thought I would post this because someone mentioned that everyone posting here is female...and just wondered if it could be related to perimenopause...
Avatar f tn Cats in season will stick their rear up in the air a lot, yowl, make loud "PRRT!" sounds constantly, especially if you touch them or they rub up against something. They might also smell a little bad too, around the rear end. There's no mistaking when a cat is in season in my experience, they are so obnoxious.
Avatar n tn All of my tests came up normal, except for my urine test. There were signs of blood in my urine. Have you all been tested in this capacity? I did not have a burning sensation symptom,but my doctor says that it is quite common for others not to have this symptom with a kidney infection. Nausea, flank (back) pain, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fever all associated with kidney infections. These two treatments of antibiotics has made some of my pain diminish, but not all the way.
Avatar n tn I had my third child about 9 months ago and had had some trouble with varicose and spider veins in the pregnancy and now after. I called the cardiologist that looked at my veins previosly and asked her nurse about it today. She was clueless. She thought that it sounded like hormones and a hot flash. But that sounds weird in the leg. She said that a clot would most likely be bulging and painful. I am going to try the B vitamin, and if that doesn't work I will get some tests run.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn I had a terrible taste in my mouth and was sick to my stomach at night..pay attention to physical signs..maybe that will help...but everyone is so different! My girlfriend had zero signs and was pregnant with twins!! Good Luck!!!!!! Maxwell...Best of luck...relax and keep positive thoughts!!! The waiting is so hard...and as you can see in my previous posts...I was for sure thinking it didn't work until the beta day got closer. Hang in there..I have a good feeling for you!!!
Avatar n tn I try coughing or drinking but the throat noise does not go away or even change it. I can tell it is not in my lungs, but in my throat. I can breathe shallow and minimize the noise but I feel out of breath then. My daughters say this wheeze is not my snore.They say I wheeze before the snore on intake and then exhale. I hear the noise during the day but I really have to listen to hear it as there is always too much back ground noise.
Avatar f tn Signs of the disease include mental retardation, eye and nervous sys deafness, lung disease, fever, jaundice and rash pregnancy can also result in miscarriage.
Avatar f tn As I understand it, the real danger with cats is in their poop. You don't have to get rid of the cat as long as someone else is cleaning up after it. Try to stay away from the litter box as much as possible. We had 3 cats when I was pregnant with our son. My husband took care of cleaning up after them and we didn't have any issues. I'm nearly 33 weeks and we have 1 cat. My husband cleans up after her and everything is going fine.
1710194 tn?1308935394 We try and keep the litter box away from him but because of a joint problem with one of the cats we couldn't keep a gate up to keep the dog out, so we had just been making sure the door to that room was closed enough that he couldn't get in. But of course the cats open it all the time and the dog sneeks in. Either way we have since found a much better solution where we can have the gate up but still give both cats total access to the littler box.
Avatar f tn Cats and dogs sense pregnancy!
Avatar n tn It has a positive inotropic action on cardiac tissue, and has been shown in some studies to lower blood pressure. In part, the cardiac effects of taurine are probably due to its ability to protect the heart from the adverse effects of either excessive or inadequate calcium ion (Ca2+) levels. The consequence of Ca2+ excess is the accumulation of intracellular calcium, ultimately leading to cellular death.
