You should call your doctor if you haven't been able to keep anything down for 24 hours.

This is nothing to worry about. A woman's body is AMAZING! It takes care of the baby before it takes care of you :) There are many women that have extreme morning sickness and their babies are just fine. However, if you are having symptoms that are more severe than regular flu symptoms or if you "just don't feel right", then do call your doctor.

Answerno---I think it possibly could be a sign. My baby stopped growing 6w2d and my diarrhea started that day, but I did not miscarry for 3 weeks. Once the baby stopped growing, I had diarrhea for 7 days straight - and that never happens to me.Now I am pregnant again & I hit 6w2d yesterday and my diarrhea started again. The doctors feel my baby will not make it based on my 6w1d ultrasound, so this diarrhea could be a sign in my 2nd miscarriage.

Castor oil is not a recommended dietary supplement for pregnant mothers, since it can induce vomiting and diarrhea. You could wait until your baby is as fully formed as s/he can be in the womb, and wait for your body to listen to the baby's signal that it's time to be born. Natural labour will follow. Human gestation is normal between 37 and 42 weeks.

Castor Oil will only make you have explosive diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Your baby will come when it is ready. Make sure you are getting enough rest and stay hydrated. I started taking short walks near the end of my pregnancy--not sure if it helped the baby come earlier by a few days, but it helped the wait.

No, quite the opposite. Vomiting is very common in pregnancy due to the extra hormones. It is most common during the early stages (1-12 weeks) and is not a sign that the baby has died.

Give him/her plenty of water, the baby loses a lot of water when having diarrhea, and go see a doctor.

can i have my baby at 24 weeks if i wanted to?

Tummy upset, diarrhea, vomiting and flu like symptoms due to bacteria growing in it. It is really unsafe for babies and it could cause dehydration from the diarrhea and vomit then making the child end up in the hospital. Nothing good comes from it that is why you only have a 1 hour window to use the formula after that toss it in the trash for the safety of the baby.

Absolutely! If a baby is born at just 38 weeks, its considered full term. A baby born at 37 weeks should be just fine! From about 26 weeks can a baby survive. I have already seen a baby who was born at 25 weeks and who has survived.

The best thing to do by far when one's baby has diarrhea, is to take the baby to a doctor. This is always a much safer and more sensible option than attempting to treat the condition oneself.

No. But if a baby rabbit was just born and pooped it eats it!

how far the baby developed at twelve weeks how far the baby developed at twelve weeks how far the baby developed at twelve weeks

That can dehydrate the mother by causing vomiting and diarrhea. If she is near death from dehydration, the baby may die and miscarry. That would be about the only mechanism for magnesium sulfate to work as an abortifacient.

It is possible that it will start labor, but it isn't recommended because it can also cause severe diarrhea, which could sput stress on the baby.

No, you can't feel the baby move at 4 weeks. by 4 weeks the baby hasn't been formed its still an egg - growing into a baby

Your baby is six inches long at 19 weeks!

You are not supposed to feel the baby until about 12 weeks in.


No at 8 weeks the baby is about the size of a raspberry. It would not be possible to feel the baby move that early.

When a baby is 9 weeks in the womb, the baby is about the size of a grape or almost and inch long.

No......anything you eat or drink doesn't touch the baby because your stomach and uterus aren't connected. Castor oil is not recommended for inducing labour though, because it can cause vomiting and diarrhea and is also proven to not be effective at inducing labour.

No, teething has no direct relation to diarrehea.
