okay---- if you are less than 3 months pregnant you need to see a doctor immediately because the pregnancy could be ectopic (in the fallopian tube) , if this has already been ruled out due to early ultra sound examination, then as long as there is no bleeding then it is probably just round ligament pain caused by the uterus growing a stretching, which is perfectly normal (esp if this is your first pregnancy). if you are more than 6 months pregnant it's normal. MY daughter used to stretch and kick me in the left rib all the time. Just change your sitting position and gently massage the spot and she/he will change position and you will be more comfortable. good luck Joymaker rn

What is Ventricular diastole?

Ventricle diastole is the period during which the ventricles are relaxing. During ventricular diastole, the pressure in the (left and right) ventricles drops from the peak that it reaches in systole. When the pressure in the left ventricle drops to below the pressure in the left atrium, the mitral(bicuspid) valve opens, causing accumulated blood from the atrium to flow into the ventricles.

Why would it be necessary to sleep on your left side when pregnant?

Either left or right will place the developing baby more to one side and lessen the downward pressure on the pregnant woman's internal organs. The left side is favoured to increase blood flow to the baby, though it would not be comfortable to only lay on the left side all the time, so use both left and right alternately.

Can a leaking breake hose cause uneven wear of the breake pads?

Yes, if it's a hose going directly to a caliper.

What is blood pressure and how do you interpret a blood pressure reading?

It is a reading using a blood pressure cuff that gives you two numbers, the top being 'systolic' and the bottom being 'diastolic'. The systolic pressure is achieved when the left ventricle is pumping blood out into the body, the diastolic blood pressure is achieved when the left ventricle is relaxing. A "normal' blood pressure is 120/80. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is over 140 systolic or over 90 diastolic. Disease states may dictate different goals for blood pressure.
