Nausea usually last for three months, this is because of the hormone progesterone.
  == Answer ==   Spotting in gernal is very common in early pregnany. As the new baby pushes itself into the blood lining of the uterus, the extra blood sometimes comes out in spotting or a very light period
It's not a baby until week 38. Week 1-10 it's a embryo and week11-38 a fetus. Not sure what you mean with located since it's in your uterus. Your uterus is not big and the fetus is even smaller.
No it's usually not until around 16 weeks, same as with one baby.
The baby will grow to its full term, it will go in lightening, effacement and then prepare for delivery.
Babies start putting on some weight, starting at about 2.25 poundsand moving closer to the average birth weight of around 7 pounds.They now have eyelashes and can blink their eyes. They startgetting fingernails, toenails, and hair, and their brains addbillions of neurons.

No you should not have a mammogram during pregnancy at all. If the doctors think there is a reason to examine your breast tissue there are other tests, like an ultrasound that can be done. (Besides double ouch!!) If you had a mammogram before you were aware of the pregnancy, discuss the possible...
  5 weeks is the earliest most women get theirs (3 weeks after conception). They will have to do a vaginal ultrasound to be able to see anything and it won't look like a baby yet.
  == Answer ==   Ultrasounds are fairly accurate - a fetus at 12 weeks is very small. A 22 week fetus is fairly large. They measure how big bones are, and the distance around the head. There is no mistaking a 12 weeker for a 22 weeker.
    I think it's different for every woman, but I'm pregnant and I throw up at LEAST once a day. It's not that bad anymore though. I actually look forward to it because it makes the nausea do away.
All women are different and the amount also changes with the cycle. But as long as it doesn't smell bad and is chunky or you have pain, it's normal. Sometimes you need extra thin pads in your undies so it wont stain. That is normal too. There is no measured amount. The vaginal walls always secrete...
  == Answer ==   Not necessarily but there could be a chance.
Yes, however X rays are often involved and it is best to only have emergency X-rays during pregnancy
The second trimester is when movement can be felt by the mother, however movement begins in the first trimester but is small and light enough for the mother not to be able to feel it
    Cervical measurements vary greatly, but a normal second trimester cervix is usually between 3 and 4 cm long (30-40 mm) If your cervix is less than 25 mm in length at 18-22 weeks, you are at higher risk for pre-term labor, pre-term delivery and incompetent cervix. Usually your doctor will...
  You can but you should see a doctor for any bleeding during pregnancy for them to determine if it is normal or not.
Slippery elm is known to cause contractions and could perhaps  induce labor. Taking herbs while pregnant, especially if not under  the direction of a professional who knows all of the benefits and  risks, could be very dangerous, though.

Yes, in fact, it is common in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters also, until the baby gets so big that it is completely squashing your colon, making it very hard to have a bowel movement or pass gas...good times. However, by this point the heartburn is so bad that you can hardly complete a sentence without...

STILLBORN, STILLBIRTH. to say babies are still born and gone, you only use tem Stillbirth when you have carried baby and have to...

Yes, each woman and pregnancy is unique. It is possible to leak colostrum during the first trimester. That is how I knew I was pregnant with my third child.

6 ng/ml during early pregnancy to 210 ng/ml near term for an uncomplicated pregnancy
Try these points on yourself, and if a contraction begins, stop the pressure. When the contraction stops, apply pressure again. Of course, avoid all of these reflexology points until you are past your due date - at least your 41st week. You certainly don't want to rush the baby before its time...
Answer . Yes. It is possible, but the chances of being pregnant have more to do with your last menstrual period. If it happened about two weeks before you had sex then there is a higher possibility that you could be pregnant. The pill you took afterwards most likely did nothing to decrease your...

It can be gas, constipation, your uterus growing; signs of an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, and the list can go on and on. If the cramping continues and it concerns you too much you should...
Isabgol is fine to take during the first trimester of your  pregnancy. The supplement will help to prevent straining of your  bowel movements.
The cells that are madly dividing in the days after conception will eventually split off to form the placenta, umbilical cord and the baby.

  Most miscarriages (90%) occur during the first trimester, in the first 6 weeks even, so the further you are past that the better chance you have of carrying your baby to term.
Do you mean when do you first start showing that your pregnant?  Because your stomach does not get hard until you can visibly see  that you are carrying a baby which is usually around 4 months.
Most statistics say that up to 12 weeks, the chance of having a miscarriage is up to 20%, or higher in people who have had miscarriages in the past or are at a high risk of having a miscarriage. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking, or using recreational drugs can also increase the chance of...
  == utrasound accuracy ==   I think all ultrasounds these days are pretty accurate. If you have doubt you could always go to another clinic for a second opioion. Good luck

Doctor confirmed my pregnancy (6/7 Ala along) and said that spotting during early pregnancy is fairly common as long as its not accompanied by chills, fever, heavy bleeding with or without blood clots. I tested positive for a...
If you are talking about the baby moving, most women don't feel anything until at least 16-20 weeks, which 4 or 5 months. Some women who have had children before, or women who are very slim may feel movement slightly earlier than others.
  == Answer ==   Because it is full of uterus and baby.
Taking laxatives is not recommended at any point during pregnancy.
  See a dentist right away. You need to get rid of the infection and the pain. Both can lead to premature labor and complicate the delivery. Even if the dentist does not treat the problem definitively, he/she can knock down the infection and get you out of pain until the baby is born. After the...
I have altered this question, I hope correctly. You shouldn't be bleeding but you certainly may be constipated which may make your bottom hurt. alternatively if it stings when you pee you may have a urine infection.   See your healthcare provider who can help with any/all these problems.
No, if you have sex when pregnant the uterus is closed by the mucus plug and nothing can get in to the fetus. Once a embryo is made it can not be changed by another sperm and egg.
Unless you are already in the second trimester, it is highly unlikely that your excessive weight gain is being caused by pregnancy. Suring the first trimester, there is minimal weight gain, however, during the second trimester is when most pregnancy weight will be gained.
If you're talking about "showing", many people don't even start to show until 4 or 5 months. You will not being showing at all at 2 months, because your uterus has not even grown above your pubic bone yet, and that happens at 12 weeks, or 3 months. But like I said many people don't show until 4 or 5...

Yes because of the hormonal changes and increase blood circulation.
Suring the first month of pregnancy not very many physical changes are happening, but major organ systems are beginning the early stages of development, along with the brain and nervous system. Even with all of this happening, it is only about the size of a poppyseed or a grain of rice.
You should always talk to both your OBGYN and your dentist before undergoing precedures such as getting teeth pulled.

I don't know how normal it is to lose weight early in pregnancy, but it certainly is not unusual or uncommon. I lost several pounds during my first pregnancy. And I ended up having a very healthy 10 pound baby boy who is now a healthy and energetic 5'7" 12-year-old. He's a gifted student with...
It all depends on the person. The most common reason for first trimester abdominal pains is the stretching of the uterus. Your baby is starting to grow larger than the space in your uterus allows, causing the stretching, and therefore, the pain.
Yes, everyone is different. Some people never experience any pregnancy symptoms, while others have every sypmtom known to man. Not being tired is completely normal.

Drinking any amount of alcohol during pregnancy can effect the health of the developing fetus in more ways than one. It can cause serious birth defects, mental problems, miscarriage, and FAS (fetal alcohool syndrome).
Yes, sucking in your stomach is perfectly fine and will cause no harm.
Yes, it is possible, but it is not recommended and it is not healthy to gain that much weight during the first trimester. Most of your pregnancy weight gain should happen during the second trimester.
You should never drink any amount of alcohol during pregnancy. There is research showing that very small amounts can have an effect on a fetus and cause birth defects. Drinking any amount of alcohol can cause FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).
%DETAILS%. Answer . As the ultrasound scan showed everything was normal I wouldn't worry too much. However, I would ask a medically qualified person to clear your mind before you start using the oil again..
