If after breastfeeding Can you maintain the size of your enlarged breasts by pumping after weaning or will they shrink?

As every nursing mother knows, a woman's breasts grow in size while they are lactating. This growth in size usually starts during the later part of pregnancy and is maintained as long as she is nursing. Once her child has been weaned and is no longer requiring milk and breast milk production ceases, this increased size is reversed and the woman's breasts largely return to their prepregnancy size. If a woman likes the new size of her bust line she can maintain it even after weaning by providing another means of breast/nipple stimulation by using a breast pump to keep up the demand for milk production. This stimulation can also be provided by a willing partner to keep up her milk supply.

Is it common to have back pain after delivery?

I have had 3 kids & 10 epidural's all together & the back pain is coming from that. The doctor should have told you that getting an epidural could cause back pains in your future. After my 1st child I had back pains up to a year later.

What happens if a baby swallows feces at birth?

Meconium is the baby's first bowel movement and it is a thick green tar-like substance. For most babies, meconium is released shortly after they are born. However, some babies release meconium during labor and delivery. When a woman is in labor, her doctor will be able to tell if the baby has had a bowel movement because her amniotic fluid will be stained with meconium. The baby will be monitored very closely for any signs of fetal distress.

If meconium is present during labor or birth, the baby can aspirate the meconium or swallow it. Once the baby is born, the doctor will perform suctioning to reduce the amount of meconium that the baby can aspirate. If the baby does inhale the meconium, it can cause Meconium Aspiration Syndrome which can lead to meconium aspiration pneumonia - both can be very serious. As a result, the baby will be closely monitored and may require a stay in the NICU for several days to a few weeks. Treatment may include antibiotics or a ventilator. The doctor will perform chest x rays to make sure the lungs are functioning normally.

Babies swallowing meconium is more common than one may think. Ask some friends - chances are pretty good that it's happened to someone you know.

Why would your baby go to someone else instead of you?

Hello.....children at a very young age get accustomed to someone who is familiar to them...if your child is in daycare or with a home day care provider, your child gets very used to that person and may show some resistance to you....personally, I have made it a point to surround my 1 year old around family and friends to avoid this separate anxiety...Good Luck! It is truly a blessing to have your child be comfortable with all people.. Lots of reasons, maybe they are curious, or you are worrying about something and they sense that, or they are moody and being with you didn't help so they try someone else to see if that person can magically help them, or they are mad at you , or they think that person is a softy and hope to convice them to provide candy, let them stay up later, whatever. Kids are people too and they make choices and are random. It doesn't mean they love you or like you less. They tend to be sure you love them and will play with them and hug them whenever they want so they tend to take you for granted. They sometimes seek out other adults because they don't trust that that person will be as available all the time. Take it as a weird compliment.

What is normal heart rate during pregnancy?

The heart rate during pregnancy is a little higher than the normal heart rate. In general, the heart rate of a women is 70 beats per minute but during pregnancy the heart rate goes around 85-90 beats per minute. In the last trimester of your pregnancy, there is a chance of an increase of 10-20 beats in your heart rate. This is as to full fill the additional requirement of blood flow for nourishing the featus.

Is it normal to still be passing blood clots and stuff a month after giving birth?

No it is not normal to still be bleeding and having clots a month after childbirth. Your loss by now should be just a creamy dicharge if anything at all. Please go and see your doctor as you may have a piece of placenta left behind.

Placenta

What happens if a doctor forgets to remove the placenta after birth?

I am assuming you do not know how a placenta looks like. It's not just a thin cord. It's pretty large, not something you can easily forget to "remove". I can't imagine a doctor forgetting to remove that. And if the doctor does forget, the patient will lose a lot of blood, and then would probably die.

How long is the pregnancy hormone in your system after having a miscarriage?

the hormone can stay in your system for up to 8 weeks. this can make a PT show up positive.

Speaking from my own experiences. I had two miscarriages. Your hormones should return to normal within a week or 2. My hormones returned to normal within a week.

Occasionally the baby dies a while before the miscarriage and the hormones will have almost disappeared by the time you actually miscarry. It all depends on the reason for the miscarriage and most of the time no-one knows the reason.

What happens to the half of the umbilical cord that is still attached to the mother?

The umbilical cord is never attached to the mother. The umbilical cord is attached to the placenta, which is inside of the mother's uterus. When the baby is delivered, the placenta comes out, and the umbilical cord attached to it comes out with it.

What happens when you are anorexic?

Answer

Anorexia is a disease in which you view yourself as overtly fat. It lowers your self esteem and causes you to be less out gowing and more secluded. With this disease you choose not to eat as to lose weight which is not healthy and anorexia is not a good thing to have!
You become obssessed about your weight and you think that there is no such thing as being 'too thin'. You eliminate all high calorie foods, or just in general stop eating. Some early signs are becoming constipated, because you don't have enough foods going through your system. You may look in the mirror constantly, before and after every 'meal', and critisize parts of your body. It hurts you mentally, physically, and most importantly, emotionally.

Is there any traditional reason that fathers cut the umbilical cord of the newborn child?

Years ago fathers weren't even allowed to enter into a delivery room to see their child born and the change of letting the father be part of the birth is one excellent idea and he will appreciate what his wife/girlfriend has had to go through giving birth as well as seeing the miracle of birth and with cutting the umbilical cord this is letting him experience even more and there would be a stronger bond between father and child. No longer is the birth of a baby a great mystery to men and it shouldn't be.

Tampons

How soon can you use tampons after giving birth?

Doctors normally say nothing in the vagina for at least 6 weeks after delivery. There is a risk for infection. I would wait until the second period comes.

Can you eat your placenta?

You can absolutely eat your placenta. Even better, you can sometimes find people who will dehydrate and encapsulate your placenta so you can take it in pill form. It is a wonderful way to return nutrients to your body and stabilize post partum hormones. Just tell the nurses beforehand that you want your placenta saved!!

What happens to a dogs umbilical cord?

When dogs give birth(actually any mammal in the wild) unaided by humans it is natural for them to chew the unbilicial cord,eat it and the afterbirth to add nurishment to their system that aids in the nutrients for nursing. The mother knows just how to ship it off with her teeth. Whatever is left, will dry up in time and fall off.

Is it safe to go to a farm when you are pregnant?

I would have to yes. Just don't pick up any droppings and try not to get kicked by anything. There are lots of women that even still work on their farms while they are pregnant. Ask your doctor. I have to agree. You may not want to mixing herbicides or climb inside a dusty grain bin. There have been many farmers wives who have been pregnant and they are on the farm everyday. As pointed out in the 1st answer, if in doubt - depending on what type of farm or what farming operation you intend to be around, consult your doctor.
