Hormones are changing
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.

Yes and you should let your Dr know about it.
first tree month of embrion life
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 months, some even later than that.

Cito Gaston of the Toronto Blue Jays in 1992.
it's pretty normal to have spotting during the first trimester of pregnancy. it is most likely caused to early development in the uterus. your body is producing more blood to provide nutrients to the fetus. A little bit of bleeding or light spotting is very common and nothing to worry about. However, if the bleeding gets heavier and turns a bright red ("new blood") you may want to see a doctor. if the heavy bleeding… Read More
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 above average intelligence; happy and outgoing with many friends; musically talented, technically inclined. Obviously, my losing a few pounds in… Read More
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.
Yes. Spotting during the first trimester is very normal and sometimes spotting may go along with mild cramps. Many times the spotting is caused by your uterus growing and breaking small vessels for more room. However if you are having spotting which continues to bleeding and filling a maxi an hour for 3 hours along with heavy cramping there is a great chance you are having a miscarriage. When you are in this situation Dr's… Read More
"There is a point at which you should start being careful about vitamin supplements -- some are not recommended for use during pregnancy. Anyway, your OB should be able to fill you in. It should be possible to get everything you need through diet, barring those weird and wonderful (not!) shortages that your body invents during pregnancy -- magnesium/potassium and calcium leap to mind for a few people I know -- when you do need… Read More
Yes, dizziness, cramps and headaches are all normal in pregnancy - most often caused by hormonal fluctuations.
If you were on bed-rest it could be circulation, but dizziness is also common in pregnancy too.
Jen, Waxing, plucking or shaving the unwanted hair is safe, but hair removal creams (depilatories)contain chemicals that haven't been extensively studied. Just to be on the safe side I would avoid it. The skin is the largest organ of the body so anything you put on your skin in dissolved into the body.
If your pregnant you shouldn't have any alchool. You never know what is developing at that time. If you were drinking when your baby is developing a nose, eyes, mouth, brain, any part of the body you could mess it up. things won't develop the way they are supposed to. But i guess it just a roll of the dice...wether or not anything is developing...and no one can tell you what exactally is forming on… Read More
Just about anything can be normal. You have a lot of hormones being produced in overtime during the first trimester. If you are still concerned talk to your doctor. They will be able to help you better.
It's possible for it to get a little hard. Everything is changing. If you have concerns, talk to your doctor. If this is your only sign of pregnancy and you haven't had a positive test, take a test. Having just that symptom isn't a really good sign to go by.
YES! That's the first place it gets hard because of the growing uterus.
Yes your body is changing so fast now. Tell your spouse not to worry you'll be back to normal sex soon. And no it wont hurt the baby. If he starts to feel the baby, have him back up some. Your spouse will not "feel" the baby during intercourse unless his hand is on your stomach and the baby moves. For this to be possible, his penis would have to be so long that it… Read More
As with everything, this depends on the person. Some women report their stomachs getting firmer toward the end of their first trimester. Most common seems to be stomach hardening at about 18-28 weeks. Other women say their tummy did not get firm until after 30 weeks.
Many women are constipated during pregnancy - especially in the beginning - a fetus takes what it needs from a mother's system and this can cause changes in bowel movements
Vaginal bleeding or spotting can occur during pregnancy for many reasons. This can be a very frightening experience for an expectant mom. If you experience any bleeding during pregnancy contact your doctor immediately. Some women will have spotting or bleeding during early pregnancy.

The first three months while your baby is busy developing
Light bleeding is actually fairly common during the first trimester, and the most typical cause is from implantation bleeding which occurs during implantation and possibly anytime during the following weeks. The brown discharge is probably just the leftover blood from implantation bleeding and is no cause for concern unless it has a foul odor or causes itching or irritation.
No different than when you are not pregnant. You may start to feel something at around 12-13 weeks.
Not dangerous as far as we know.
Uh, wierd. Hopefully not a family member. ==new answer==need more information such as, was this person asleep at the time,taking medication, etc. In order to answer this question, more details are necessary. Was it a dream or was this person awake at the time? Halucinations can usually be addressed by putting the full attention on investigating what it is rather than secumb to fear and have them continue unabated. ==new answer==need more information such as… Read More
Yes this is very common in early pregnancy. Your ligaments are starting to stretch with the increased fluid, even in the earliest part of pregnancy. This will cause alot of pain as you get further along and may sometimes even seem unbearable. Warm baths sometimes help, but make sure they are not too warm. You dont want to overheat your body, this may cause birth defects with the baby. 100 degree water or cooler should… Read More
A woman can feel the cervix anytime. It feels a lot like the end of your nose, except the cervix has one slit as the opening. A woman cannot see her own cervix, though.
Many people don't show at all in the first trimester as the uterus does not rise out of the pelvis until 12-13 weeks so there is nothing to show. I worked with a girl who didn't show until 6 months along. It just depends on how the girl is built to begin with.
In all liklihood, nothing. However, consult your physician regarding alcohol consumption. It can be very harmful to your child further into pregnancy.
Well its an urban ledgend. I cant help and it cant hurt.
I am not for sure if it is bad or not. But I do know that during the first trimester, alot of nuerological stuff is going on. If you want your baby to be as healthy as they can be you need to take prenatal vitamins:)
You might be pregnant... Prenatal vitamins do not affect ovulation.
Hi, In your first pregnancy you usually notice hardening of your tummy, around 3-4 months. With your second pregnancy it can happen a earlier. With multiple pregnancies, it happens earlier still.
I have 4 kids I could not take the prenatals because they also made me sick I had 4 healthy babies none under 7lbs. If you are worried try taking just an over the counter multi vitamins 90% of women in the world have no access to prenatal vitamins. You have taken them for the first three months which are the most important. Women in North America and Western Europe who eat a good diet… Read More
Any spotting in pregnancy is abnormal, though not necessarily serious. this happen only once, around the time you are expecting your period--this is called implatation bleeding and it can last for one to two days but not all women get this-just a few does
Nope. I've never had sex, and I got the shot this morning.
In my both my pregnacies if I bent over too far too quick I got a bad cramp in my tummy, in bed twistin around I sometimes got pinching in my stomach, sitting doing laundry gave me tummy aches(backaches too) early on
The question is "how". I've gotten lumps in the back of my throat before and the doctors called it "cobblestoneing" it comes from irritation and some people are just more prone than others.
