If you mean 'will she look pregnant' I don't think that's very likely. If you mean 'can she tell she's pregnant', yes, it is very possible. I've had 3 children and every time I got pregnant, I already knew before I even took the at home tests. I don't know if it was intuition or if I am just very in… tune with my body. I'll admit that the first time, my breasts swelled up (2 cup sizes!)and morning sickness kicked in almost immediately - except my 'morning sickness' would hit in the evening. But there were no obvious signs with the other two pregnancies. (MORE)
The only time a woman can get pregnant is when she ovulates. Theegg can be fertilised for about 36 hours. However sperm has beenknown to live in the vaginal tract/womb/fallopian tubes for up to 5days, so while a woman can only get pregnant when she ovulates iewhen an egg is available for the sperm t…o fertilise, the length oftime that sperm can live for must also be considered when timingintercourse.

Preterm labor has been associated with trauma, including domestic abuse situations, falls and automobile accidents.. In a 1998 article in the European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, five pregnant mothers were admitted for repeated direct blunt abdominal trauma due to "f…alls" during pregnancy. Preterm contractions were noted in three patients -- one of which actually delivered preterm.. There did not seem to be an association with placental separation, intrauterine growth restriction or fetal death. All patients delivered normally. The authors concluded that routine hospitalized surveillance in the absence of vaginal bleeding or uterine contractions may not be warranted.. Seat belt syndrome and its possible effects for pregnancy has also been considered. The term "seat belt" syndrome is used for the injuries caused by contact forces between the human body and the seat belt which result from the acceleration force. Injuries such as ruptured uterus are rare, but do occur. It is still recommended that pregnant women wear the lap belt and shoulder harness during pregnancy. The lap belt should be worn close to the pubic bone.. Trauma during pregnancy is remarkably common, and is greatly underestimated in terms of its contribution to both maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. From your description, you were managed appropriately by being monitored for several hours and given a list of warning signs to be alert for such as contractions, pressure, bleeding, fever, change in fetal movement pattern and pain. When preterm contractions were identified, Terbutaline was administered. My best wishes that you will be able to carry this baby to term. (MORE)
Yes, there is a chance of it causing problems later. Where as men produce completely new sperm every few days, women are born with a certain amount of eggs. She will release these eggs, but never produce new ones. If an egg is damaged by narcotics, it stays damaged. If that happens to be the egg tha…t is fertilized, it can cause problems for the baby.

When a woman goes in to LABOR it means that she's about to give birth . Which means that her baby or babies are ready for delivery.
, I am 40 weeks in on the 30th so only two days to go and have only JUST thought and looked up castor oil, I would definitely read up on it because at 36 weeks your baby is not ready otherwise pregnancy would only be for 36 weeks. If there is something wrong the doctor will talk to you about your …options and you might definitely likely look at ANOTHER way to bring on the labor, but castor oil... it is disgusting!!! took it yesterday and has not done anything for me other than make me vomit and feel tired... It may work for you but to be HONEST I really wouldn't be selfish and take the castor oil, your lil one will come when they are ready to come... You can cause fetal distress and more... and is not recommended unless you have spoken to your midwife... at the stage you are at I have heard of a product called Pre-Birth which you can get at any Health Pharmacy, once again look it up but it is used earlier on and later in your pregnancy your midwife can do what is known as a stretch and sweep to help you along, but just ask them about it at your next appointment... All the best :) (MORE)
Yes! The woman can get pregnant: . anytime before her period . anytime during her period . anytime after her period . anytime ... PERIOD . The above has been proven by the medical community at large time and time again. It's rather simple and logical: Having sex = getting pregnant ... it can …(and does) happen to anyone. Period. (MORE)
Some recent court decision have confirmed it would be Two Counts of Homicide , not merely one.
well if your period already started SURE anytimes good but if it hasn't started you don't even have the ability to GET pregnet
A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks but has a window of 2 weeks on either side for it to be considered full term (38 -42 weeks). A baby born before 38 weeks would be considered premature.
Your mare is pregnant and she has a dark creamy urine an not sure if she is close to labor if it is one on the signs just before labor?
Squeeze 5-10 drops of fluid from one of her teats if it is clear- there can be quite some time before foaling, eventually it will have a clear yellow color then a murky-ness to it then it will look white like the cows milk you drink. If you check her once a day a month before she is due and ONLY tak…e a very small amount- I do it into the cupped palm of my hand, that color change will be very apparent. She is close to foaling when it is WHITE. Many mares will get tiny waxy like drops on the tip of the teat any wheres from hours to WEEKS before foaling. More universities and colleges of Vet Med are FINALLY teaching about this color change. Also with mares having their first foal, having the teat touched can help when the foal tries to nurse that first day and not get booted away by mom. The urine , unless she is doing a lot of straining or you see blood tinged urine she is probably just fine. Straining a lot and over and over, or blood can be a urinary tract infection, so call the vet for analysis and treatment. (MORE)
first you can help by leaving her alone also if you think she is hungry give her some food and do not hurt her stomic or let her go out side like i said leave her alone but keep a eye on her and well the rest you can figure out
No, it pops out because her belly gets that swollen. When she's going in labor her water will break, and she'll feel constractions in her belly. It's also possible that she gets 'practice constractions' those are pretty scary, because you don't know what's happening and wether or not she's going …into labor. But she'll feel the difference.

when a woman pregnant and her belly button pops out does that mean she in labor yes or no
Usually nine to ten months, depending on if she has a premature baby (when the baby is born before it is full term)
Is it true that 10 days before and after period have low possibilities that a woman can get pregnant?
Yeah that's pretty close. You usually ovulate 2 weeks before and it lasts for about 3 days.
Anything. Except what your allergic to, obviously, or things with alcohol or drugs mixed in. If your diabetic just stick with what you were eating before.
There are unusual labor-demands on the whole circulatory system- which is now nourishing two life forms! the pregnancy itself swells uo in the lower abdomen, and there are such things as stretch marks- confined almost entirely to pregnant and neonatal women ( shortly after birth) C-section scars are… something else- and man-made.

Yes. Giving birth to a stillborn affect's a woman's ability to get pregnant no differently than a live birth. Since most doctors advise women to wait 6 weeks after giving birth, they quite often have not had a period since giving birth, but are still very likely to get pregnant the very first time… they have sex after that 6 week waiting period is up. . So if you do not want to get pregnant again that soon, you need to use precautions. If you do want to get pregnant again, check with your doctor to be sure it's ok for you to do so. (MORE)
This sounds like pica. It is nothing to beembarrassed about, but you need to see a doctor. Pica in pregnant women is common, but not talked about. It is usually caused by a lack of certain nutrienct's.
Not necessarily. But, I had the same problem and I am pregnant! My period was supposed to start on a monday and I began spotting the Saturday morning before..... That is totally not normal for me. So I bout a pregnancy test and it was positive! It is best to take a test! They do sell tests that can …tell you before you actually miss your period. (MORE)
A lot of the pregnancy tests you buy at the store will tell you the percentage of accuracy when taken days before your expected period. If you know when you ovulated then you can test as early as ten days after that :) Good luck!
that totally depends from person to person. Every birth and every pregnancy is different. Generally speaking though, if your waters break, your labour is a lot quicker but that is no guarantee either. I was 2 cm dilated for a month before my son was born and when my water did eventually break it too…k 5 hours from the time my water broke until he has born. I was in active (pain) labour for about 3 of those hours. With my first son I was in labour for 18 hours but the hospital had to break my waters. Good luck with everything. (MORE)
There are the over the counter test kits that state they can tell in 5 days, but I doubt they are very accurate. The missing of a period is a sure indication of pregnancy.
Just eat normal. There's no wonder food that can help you. Actually, an important thing is, when your pregnant, remember, don't eat junk food. eat Healthy.
This vary a lot from woman to woman. Some go early into the menopause, some at age 29 even. Others do not until well into their 50's. As a general rule we can say that when you start the menopause and totally stop having the period, the chances of getting pregnant are pretty slim. For most woman th…is is after age of 45. Age alone however does not limit/rule out having babies. It will certainly lower the chances but a chance is always a chance. (MORE)
you should know after 1 or 2 weeks, and if you don't use a pregnancy test wait a month, month 1/2 to see if your menstrual cycle arrives. and if you are on birth control and you think you may be pregnant stop taking it and refer to your doctor.
If a woman is on the BCP and taking it as ordered by her doctor - she is not having unprotected sex! - the sole purpose of BCP in regards to a woman and her fertility is to prevent pregnancy. That said, no birth control is 100% effective when it comes to protection from pregnancy - but 99.5% … - when taken correctly is very effective and the chance of pregnancy is very small. Condoms - when used with BCP makes the risk of pregnancy almost zero, but more importantly condoms are your best defense against STIs (AKA STD), hepatitis, AIDS and many more infections that can negatively effect your life - including cervical cancer. While taking BCP - if you accidentally miss 2 or more pills in the first week or the last week of the packet and have sex without a condom - you should speak to a pharmacist or doctor about the need to use E mergency C ontraceptives. Look on-line for a pharmacy near you - that dispenses Plan B - Taken in the first 72 hours - Plan B is 89% effective in preventing pregnancy - taken in the first 24 hours it may be even more effective and taken in the first 5 days or 110 hours it will still prevent pregnancy in some cases.

Nearly all dogs have a temperature drop 24-38 hours before they go into labour, and will spike soon before labour. This just happened to my dog. She is due and her temp has been down since yesterday morning and just now it spiked to 101. So i started researching and found out that approx 12-24 ho…urs before labor the temp will have been dropped and than will spike to around 101! So she should be going soon. (MORE)
The question is incomplete. There are no options given (for "which of the following") to answer this question.
Traditionally, raspberry leaf tea is thought to help promote the tone of the uterus during pregnancy and childbirth. In one study of pregnant women it was found that women who used raspberry leaf had shorter labour, without side-effects to them or their babies. It also demonstrated less need to arti…ficially rupture the membranes, need forceps, suction, or C section. [Aust Coll Midwives Inc J. 1999 Sep;12(3):20-5.] (MORE)
Yes, a person who is infected with chickenpox can carry the infection to someone else, including a pregnant woman.
A person with shingles needs to take precautions around a pregnant woman without evidence of immunity to chicken pox. The pregnant woman should discuss the matter with her health care provider, who may have checked immunity at the preconception visit or a prenatal visit. . Because typical shingles …is communicable only by direct contact with lesions, even health care workers with typical shingles (not severe) are allowed to work as long as the sores can be covered.

Yes you can get pregnant at any moment. It's more likely to happen a couple days before your menstrual cycle tho. And there's no telling if your going to have a boy or a girl for a few ninths.
yes,ovulation can occur at any point in your cycle. Headaches are a common symptom of pregnancy. If you feel you may be pregnant you should take a home pregnancy test and/or see your doctor.
Usually no, but u never know. It can happen. It depends on when u ovulate.
Yes they should because the baby needs a moommy and dad so incase you brak up and you should marry then get pregnant
Women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should check with their physicians for the most up-to-date information on the safety of taking this medicine during pregnancy.
It is possible; sperm can remain inside you for about 4-5 days, sometimes 6 or 7, and if you are ovulating during sex, you could get pregnant. Of course, there are different factors involved- did you have protected or unprotected sex, are you using any kind of contraceptive (properly), and did your …partner ejaculate inside you or come into contact with your vagina. (MORE)
If your cycle is regular, no you will not be ovulating 5 days before your period is due so no pregnancy is possible.
With modern-day pregnancy tests you can already start testing a day after your period was supposed to start. Though as every women's hormone levels are different, it might take a little longer for you to get an actual positive test. If you think you are pregnant (e.g. strong physical symptoms you d…idn't have before, no period when it's usually regular) and your tests keep coming back negative, go see your doctor. They can run additional tests and bloodwork for you. (MORE)
A pregnant woman can be in labor from a hour or two to a couple days before the baby is born. It differs from woman to woman.
Does a woman need to consume the same amount of calories throughout her pregnancy as she did before she was pregnant?
Contrary to popular belief a woman only needs around 200 calories more a day when pregnant. There is no need to eat for two
Is it possibal to get pregnant if a woman comes before a man comes inside her and how does that effect the semen?
Having an orgasm has absolutely nothing to do with the chances of a woman becoming pregnant. Neither does it have any effect on the mans semen or sperm. A man has to ejaculate into a woman at the right time during her menstrual cycle usually within 4 days of the middle of her cycle or ovulation for …her to become pregnant. Google "fertility timing" on your browser for more accurate information. (MORE)
Pediatricians are trained in the field of medicine specified for children and infants. Before a baby is born, a pediatrician knows ( so we hope), whether or not the woman's pregnany is running smoothly or if there is an issue. For example, the baby is turned the wrong way or her contractions are too… far apart or too close. Pediatricians in certian cases and if necessary can deliver the child as well. Also, regardless of specific medical field, there are basic facts about pregnancies all doctors should know. (MORE)
No but, and this is a big BUT, only 20% ovulate on the same day each month and sperm can survive for a week inside the womb so if you had sex before it's release it can still be a risk.
This depends on whether the person is being held in lieu of bail. If the person is being held on a serious charge for which there is no bail bond allowed, then there is not much that can be done to procure his release, except have his attorney filed a motion for a reduction of bond. Otherwise you ca…n either post the bond in cash for the full amount - something that will be returned to you upon the conclusion of the court case, save any court costs - or you can have bail bondsman write out a bail surety bond, which will be discharged upon the conclusion of the case (acquittal or sentencing).

Placenta, umbilical cord, fetus, amniotic sac with amniotic fluid. Basically everything related to the fetus.
Perform chest thrusts on a pregnant woman. Take a CPR class to find out exactly how to do this.
Both rubella (German measles) and chickenpox can cause severe birth defects or fetal or infant death if a woman gets them while pregnant. Since they are vaccine-preventable, it makes sense for women to protect themselves before they get pregnant.
