Answer . You cannot tell the baby's sex by the rate of the heartbeat as this depends on many factors.. It is an old wives tale that you can.
Answer . I do not think it is possible. once it is born, there are genetic tests that can be done, such as a simple blood test.
\nNo. The film/residue is from being in the womb in water for 9 months and now being exposed to air. Check out Drgreene.com for some good information. Have fun.\n. \n Answer \n. \nNo.
Yes you can, Prawns are a crustation not shellfish so aslong as they are coocked and not raw prawns they are fine to eat. (It was the first thing i asked my doctos as i love prawns and scampi)
Answer Actually believe it or not, yes Its not going to go very orange but if you eat lots of carrots your skin color can change slightly, like you have a bit of sun tan.
No. Human hair color is determined almost exclusively through genetics. Very few natural environmental factors effect its natural color (e.g., extended exposure to sunlight).

Well you should always know that the main concern for eating any kind of fish during pregnancy is because of the mercury levels in the fish. Although calamari has one of the lowest levels of mercury, you should be cautious.

Your doctor will tell you what you can and cannot eat duringpregnancy. Mercury is found in fish and is not safe to eat whilepregnant.
the differences in skin color result from differences in the amountof melanin that melanocytes produce and in the size of the pigmentgranules. The three pigments that affect skin color are: 1. Melanin 2. Hemoglobin 3. Carotene Different skin colour is simply the result of different amounts ofmelani…n - skin pigmentation - in the skin. For example, the absence or lack of melanin in the skin results ina person being classed as an albino. Pigments in the skin Skin tone in people is determined by the amount & type ofmelanin pigment in the skin. People with ancestors froom sunnyareas have darker skin tones than those with ancestors from areaswith less sunlight. Skin color is largely regulated by the amount of melanin present inthe dermis. This is determined primarily by th genotype of theorganism. Skin color is caused by the amount of melanin, or pigment, in apersons skin. This is essentially genetically decided, but somethings, like sunlight, stimulate the production of melanin. Presence of melanin pigment Melanin is what determines your skin and hair color. The moremelanin you have the darker your skin/hair will be. The lessmelanin you have the lighter your skin/hair will be. Melanin ispassed down in your genes. by a thing called melanin you get more melanin from the sun andless without it melanin comes from rays in the sun enhancing yourpigment The epidermis, which is the top layer of skin, has special cellscalled melanocytes, some 60,000 in every square inch of skin.Melanocytes produce a dark pigment called melanin. Melanin givesskin its color. Black people do not have more melanin in theirsystem. Everyone has the same amount of melanin in them. Melaninprotects the body from the damaging effects caused by the sun. Whenthe skin is exposed to sunlight, the melanocytes produce additionalmelanin. This is what creates the suntan. Some of the substances that give the skin color are melanin, blood,lipofuscin and beta carotene. White people are not "White". Their skin is pink (which is a shadeof the color Red). Their origin is in Genesis 25:25 in the Bible. Go to IsraelUnite.org to learn more about the origins of "Blacks"and "Whites". Melanin, keratin, and hemoglobin. polygenic traits The melanin in their skin is produced in differentamounts based on adaptation from where their ancestor's liv (e.g.if your ancestors lived in a hot, sunny place your body would makemore melanin so you wouldn't get sunburned as easily) Your skincolor really depends on where your ancestors came from. Because, ifyou are on the darker side, that means that your ancestors probablycame from a hot place like Africa or Mexico or the Middle east, butif you have white skin, your ancestors probably came from Norway,Germany, Russia, or any place that's in the north. This all comesdown to adapting to your environment. (MORE)
No, the color of a room does not directly affect your skintemperature.

Also, if there is brig…ht sun-light streaming into the room thecolor of the wall could affect the amount of energy (heat) absorbedby the walls or refelcted back out of the room - dark coloursabsorb energy, light colors absorb less.

Raw Meat: Uncooked seafood, and rare or undercooked beef or poultry should be avoided because of the risk of contamination with coliform bacteria, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella. Deli Meat: Deli meats have been known to be contaminated with Listeria, which can cause miscarriage, or even stillbirth. L…isteria has the ability to cross the placenta and may infect the baby leading to infection or blood poisoning. If you are pregnant and you are considering eating deli meats, make certain that you reheat the meat until it is steaming. Fish with Mercury: Fish that contain high levels of mercury should be avoided. Mercury consumed during pregnancy has been linked to developmental delays and brain damage. These types of fish include: shark, tuna, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish. Canned, chunked, light tuna generally has less amounts of mercury than other tuna, but still should only be eaten in moderation. Most fish in sushi should also be avoided due to high levels of mercury. Smoked Seafood: Refrigerated, smoked seafood often labed as lox, nova style, kippered, or jerky should be avoided because they could be contaminated with Listeria. This type of fish is often found in the deli section or refridgerated section. Canned or shelf-safe smoked seafood is ok to eat. Fish exposed to Industrial Pollutants: Avoid fish from contaminated lakes and rivers that may be exposed to high levels of polychlorinated biphyenyls. This is primarily for those who fish in local lakes and streams. These fish include: blue fish, striped bass, salmon, pike, trout, and walleye. Contact the local health department or Environmental Protection Agency to determine which fish are safe to eat in your area. Remember, this is regarding fish caught in local waters, not fish from your local grocery store. Raw Shellfish: The majority of seafood borne illness is caused by undercooked shellfish, which include oysters, shrimp, crabs, lobsters, clams, and mussels. Cooking helps prevent some types of infection, but it does not prevent the algae-related infections that are associated with red tides. Raw shellfish pose concern for everybody and they should be avoided altogether during pregnancy. Raw Eggs: Raw eggs or any foods that contain raw eggs should be avoided because of the potential exposure to salmonella. Some homemade Caesar dressings, mayonnaise, homemade ice cream or custards, and Hollandaise sauces may be made with raw eggs. If the recipe is cooked at some point, this will reduce the exposure to salmonella. Commercially manufactured ice cream, dressings and eggnog are made with pasteurized eggs and do not increase the risk of salmonella. Restauants also should be using pasteurized eggs in any recipe that is made with raw eggs, such as Hollandaise sauce or dressings. Soft Cheeses: Imported soft cheeses may contain bacteria called Listeria, which can cause miscarriage or stillbirth. You would need to avoid soft cheeses such as : brie, camembert, Roquefort, feta, gorgonzola and Mexican style cheeses that include queso blanco and queso fresco, unless they clearly state that they are made from pastuerized milk. All soft non-imported cheeses made with pasteurized milk are safe to eat. Unpasteurized Milk: Unpasteurized milk may contain bacteria called Listeria. Make sure that any milk that you drink is pasteurized. PatÃ©: Refrigereated patÃ© or meat spreads should be avoided because it may contain the bacteria Listeria. Canned patÃ©, or shelf-safe meat spreads can be eaten. Caffeine: Although most studies show that caffeine intake in moderation is okay, there are others that show that caffeine intake may be related to miscarriages. Avoid caffeine during the first trimester to reduce the likelihood of a miscarriage. As a general rule, caffeine should be limited to fewer than 300 mg per day during pregnancy. Caffeine is a diuretic, which means it helps eliminate fluids from the body. This can result in water and calcium loss. It is important that you are drinking plenty of water, juice, and milk rather than caffeinated beverages. Some research shows that large amounts of caffeine are associated with miscarriage, premature birth, low birth weight, and withdrawal symptoms in infants. The safest thing is not to consume caffeine. Alcohol: There is NO amount of alcohol that is known to be safe during pregnancy, and therefore alcohol should be avoided during pregnancy. Prenatal exposure to alcohol can interfere with the healthy development of the baby. Depending on the amount, timing, and pattern of use, alcohol consumption during pregnancy can lead to Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or other developmental disorders. If you consumed alcohol before you knew you were pregnant, stop drinking now. Alcohol should continue to be avoided during breastfeeding. Exposure to alcohol as an infant poses harmful risks, and alcohol does reach the baby during breastfeeding. Unwashed Vegetables: Yes, vegetables are safe to eat, so you still need to eat them. However, it is essential to make sure they are washed to avoid potential exposure to toxoplasmosis. Toxoplasmosis may contaminate the soil where the vegetables were grown. (MORE)

An orange color of the skin (carotenodermia) can be caused by eating large amounts of carrots (or a number of other foods) over a prolonged period. The effect is normally harmless and temporary, and is often noted in young children.. However, this coloring of the skin may be due to a number of dise…ases that prevent the metabolism of carotene. So a persistent condition should be diagnosed by a physician.. During World War 2, pilots in England could be regularly identified by the orange color to their skin, large amounts of carrots being fed to them to improve eyesight!. (See related link) (MORE)
Yes, but only slightly and your skin will go back to normal, if you cut back on the carrots.
No. When you apply a colour to your hair it only affects your hair. It doesn't go near the baby.

Vitamin A in large doses as a supplement has been shown to have a potentially negative effect on fetal development. Carrots and vegetables, on the other hand, do not contain vitamin A itself but carotene. Carotene is provitamin A and is converted to vitamin A in your body only if your body needs it.… You cannot get too much Vitamine A by eating Carotene because the body regulates conversion from carotene to Vitamin A. Although carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body, excessive ingestion of carotene causes carotenemia, not vitamin A toxicity. Carotenemia is usually asymptomatic but may lead to carotenodermia, in which the skin becomes yellow. When taken as a supplement, Î²-carotene has been associated with increased cancer risk; risk does not appear to increase when carotenoids are consumed in fruits and vegetables. Eating carrots and vegetables cannot do any harm to your baby. (MORE)

That is not possible as far as changes that would be great enough to affect tests for family connections. Very rarely, some genetic changes occur during pregnancy and some can have devastating consequences. The condition known as progeria is an example of a de novo genetic mutation (it happens to th…e embryo). The child ages at a rate as much as ten times faster than normal. such children rarely live beyond the mid-teen's. (MORE)
No, once the egg is fertilized with a sperm and his DNA it can not be changed. The uterus closed and nothing can in in if you are referring to sex during pregnancy.
No. DNA determines what color a child's eyes will be. Not what the mother eats.
