Should a person with shingles avoid being around 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.

Can you start to show in your first month?

== == == == == == ANSWER

You probably won't start showing in the first month. The average is between 3 to four months. At 4 weeks pregnant there is still not a baby developed it is just an embryo with not even any limbs yet that measures at about 1 millimeter. There is a dramatic difference between week four and week five and even greater at week 6 and 7! Here is a picture of a week by week calendar of what your baby looks like! http://www.3dpregnancy.com/calendar/17-weeks-pregnant.html == == == ==

ANSWER

You are not actually showing baby or uterus in the first month. Its probably bloating and maybe weight gain from being pregnant.

Why do you feel full during pregnancy?

Because your uterus begins swelling days after conception to accommodate the living being inside of you all of the air inside of you is being forced out and your organs are being compressed. So basically there is less room to fit food....

Morning Sickness

How frequently do you have morning sickness in the early stages of pregnancy?

:It would be considered to be normal to have morning sickness (nausea/sick to your stomach) every day for some women, starting as early as the second week after conception, and for others none during the entire pregnancy. Morning sickness (which can happen any time of the day or night) could last up until 13 weeks, but if it lasts for a longer period you should at least notify your health care professional that it is still occurring (although that may just be normal for you). Sometimes it lasts 16 weeks which is perfectly normal for some women, or in a low percentage of cases, for the whole nine months. Your health care professional can determine what is normal for you or if you need treatment.

Nausea with vomiting is common, but a slightly more severe form of morning sickness, and too frequent vomiting can be problematic, causing dehydration, improper nutrition for mother and baby, and even electrolyte imbalance. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids (sports drinks are a good choice to replace the electrolytes, if tolerated). You would want to report it to your obstetrician if you vomit four times or more in one day or if you are unable to hold down any food or fluids for a full 24 hours.

Some lucky women do not experience any morning sickness, which is just as normal and does not mean anything is wrong with the pregnancy. And some have very severe cases of unrelenting vomiting, which is a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It requires medical intervention to assure proper fluid balance and nutrition.

The smell of cooking meat or of certain other foods or chemicals can trigger morning sickness, so try to allow plenty of flow through ventilation from the kitchen, ask someone else to do the cooking, and sniff lemons or ginger to help offset the offensive odors that cause the sickness.

Additional Information:I know with my two pregnancies, I never actually got sick to the point I was throwing up. I had my good days when I did not feel sick, and days where I felt sick all day. So I guess it all depends on the woman. I also found that when I did feel sick, eating ginger snap cookies or drinking ginger ale helped a lot. So, try eating anything with ginger in it and it should help the nausea.

See the related questions below for additional information on alleviating morning sickness.

yes the vomiting has multiple down sides a: dehydration b: erosion of the esophagus...... you should definitely follow up w/ your internal medicine physician.

How long does it take for you to know that you are pregnant?

Everyone's different, but most people don't notice anything until they have missed a period. Then you'd be about a month pregnant. It all depends on the woman, her cycle and her body.

i know you can have your period or miss your period when pregnant

It is so true. I had what I thought was two periods, one that looked regular and the next month one that was light. And then no period. All my pregnancy symptoms were always there although i had both a blood test and a urine test. I would be on my 3rd month right now and i am going to see my doctor to run test. If you think that you might be pregnant act like you are and give it time for the HCG to build up in your blood stream. Also, after consulting many books a woman can have slow progesterone build-up and it may take at least 2 to 3 months for the vaginal bleeding to stop.

ITS SO HARD TO KNOW THE ONLY WAY TO FIND OUT IS A PREGNANCY TEST BUT SOMETIMES IT SHOWS A NEGATIVE

4 days before expected period= 51% accurate

3 days before expected period= 82% accurate

2 days before expected period= 90% accurate

1 day before expected period =95% accurate

the day of expected period =99% accurate

  1. Conception usually occurs about 5-7 days after intercourse
  2. Your most fertile period is about 5 days before ovulation
  3. For most(but not all) women ovulation occurs about 14 days prior to her period.

To ensure the best results:

  • Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest
  • Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results
  • Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low.
  • urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip
  • Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.

Can you suck in your stomach if you're pregnant?

Yea, for the first couple of months you can. But what is the point of that, you're not even showing at this time.

When you do start to show, sorry, there's no sucking in to hide that sucker. You should be proud of your pregnant belly. If you're worried that other folks will think you're just fat, if you wear the right maternity clothes, it will be obvious that that's a pregnant belly you're carrying around. Wearing the right clothing, that fits you well, will improve your self-confidence and make you feel better about the weight.

You can definitely try to, but once the baby starts showing, usually around the 4th-5th month, it won't make much of a difference. You'll be able to feel the muscles clench and everything, but your stomach won't suck in much at all.

No, the baby is in the way. A pregnant stomach is hard.

When does your pregnancy start to show?

Every woman is different and will start showing at different times.

  • I'm nearly 3 months pregnant and I've always been small and thin, I already have a small bump I thought it was to soon to show!
  • Everyone shows different, some 5 months, some women don't show till last few weeks it, depends on the weight gain
  • It can vary with many women. Normally a woman begins to show when she is about 4 months along, but it just depends, some women I have seen don't start to show until they are 6 months along even, but a majority of women begin to show at about 3-4 months along.
  • With every woman it is different. Most women show later if she is overweight or it's her 1st pregnancy. Some women show sooner if she is thin & it's not her 1st pregnancy. With my experience with my 1st child I was 19 & did not start to show until I was almost 4 months. I was very thin & tall. With my 2nd, 3rd, & 4th I was showing by 8 weeks. By showing I mean a small bulge.
  • This is my first pregnancy and I am a size 8 and currently 2.5 months pregnant and I am showing already. Every pregnancy is different.
  • Everyone is different. I personally didn't start showing until I was about 5 months along. I've had friends that were showing as soon as 3 months, and one who didn't really show until she was almost 7 months!!
  • It is different for everyone. When I was 6 mo. pregnant with my daughter I was still in a size 5 and did not look pregnant. When I was 3 mo. pregnant with my son I looked like I was 6 mo.
  • I'm probably about a month or 2 and I'm already showing.
  • It's different for everyone. Some women don't show until the 7th month or later. Some women carry the baby more towards the back. The thinner the woman, the more likely she is to show earlier. I guess the normal time to show is about 4-6 months.
  • Women can begin to show as early as three months during pregnancy. This will mostly depend upon the frame of the woman. If she is very slender, then she will start show early than someone who may be heavier.
  • it honestly depends on the placement of your uterus in your body. some women show early because their uterus is closer to the front of their stomach. some show around 3-5 months cause its some what in the middle between the back and belly button. but if you are like me, mine is more toward my back and not show until later in the pregnancy. i am 22 weeks pregnant and i just look like i ate a bunch of cheeseburgers. i know shes there. and that's all that matters. but i expect to get bigger eventually. but right now i have no stretch marks, and i wouldn't mind if it stayed that way, as long as i have a healthy baby girl :)
  • I am a month pregnant and my belly already pokes out and has the shape of a pregnant belly. Anywhere I go people can tell that I am pregnant not gaining weight. The 2nd week I couldn't button my jeans. The 3rd week I couldn't zip my jeans. By the 4th week which I am in now I look clearly pregnant. My tummy is hard and pokes out but I have no love handles or anything. I looked on the computer before I knew for sure I was 100% pregnant, and they said at least until your 3rd month you cant show, but I'm proof you can show very early. I weighed 125 before I got pregnant, if that helps anyone. Hope this is useful!
  • This is my first pregnancy. I am seven weeks and my belly has already gotten larger. I lost two pounds when they weighed me a week ago, so it's not because I'm getting big all over. The women in my family carry big, but luckily we don't get stretch marks so I guess it's a fair trade.
  • I'm 10 weeks pregnant (my first pregnancy) and I haven't been able to button or zip my pants for 2 weeks now. I gained 10 pounds quickly, but I've lost 6 of it already. But I can't tell a difference in my pants yet! I feel like I've gained 20!! I am a little overweight already, so I was surprised that I'm already showing after only having gained 4 pounds.
  • I'm 8 weeks pregnant (my first pregnancy) and already my jeans are much tighter and people have asked. However, be careful that it's not just because you're eating more, retaining water or just bloated from the constipation.
  • Technically you "show" at 8 weeks,but the "showing" is just your stomach becoming round. Ive known women that haven't showed until they were 7 months,and know some that showed at 10 weeks. I think it mostly depends on your body and how it gains weight before pregnancy. If you gain weight in your stomach before pregnancy you may "show" sooner, but if your over weight and don't gain weight only in your stomach you wont show as quick. This is not proven nor am i saying its 100% thats juss my encounter with the several pregnant friends ive known. Being small before pregnancy means your most likely not gonna show as quick,but this is only my encounter with my friends pregnancy. And believe once you really start to show you'll wish you were still small because of all the back aches.

Why is the conception date and how many weeks pregnant different?

Since most women do not know when they ovulated the best way for medical practitioners to determine the age of your pregnancy is to use something that most women do know and that is the start of their last period. When you ovulate during a cycle can vary so by going by date of last period puts everyone on a similar timeline. The first ultrasound from 7 to 12 weeks can determine actual age of the baby very accurately and give you a very good estimation of due date.

Can hot flashes and a light period be a sign of pregnancy?

Yes, but it's not a sure thing. Take a home pregnancy test or go to a doctor for a test to be sure.

Hot flashes have been my first symptom in all 3 of my pregnancies -- in fact, hot flashes are the reason I took my last pregnancy test when I did and found out I was preg.

When does the irritability start in pregnancy?

Every woman and every pregnancy are different - some woman are irritable before they ever got pregnant, others become irritable at the end of the pregnancy, leading up to giving birth and others never really experience this mood swing.

Just try to understand when it happens, that it will pass and try to do something relaxing or at least distracting.

If a woman is over 300 pounds and 6 months pregnant will she ever really look like she is carrying a baby?

It depends on the womens body. And she may only show to people who know her body pretty well, like herself and her partner. It's hard to say, everyone is different. And if she is 5' 1" tall and 300 pounds, most likely she won't show much. But if she is 6' tall and 300 pounds, she may show a little more. Like I said, it really depends on the women.

I am 5'8 and about 250-260 lbs. You could not tell I was carrying until about 6 or 7 months when the baby was bigger and above my "gut". With my last pregnancy, I was very very big by the end of it.

I'm 5'10" 37 weeks prego, 303 pounds and look like I'm carrying twins - or so people say. I put weight on pretty evenly and have never carried alot of weight in my midsection. So for me it was pretty obvious that I was prego, even at 6 months. I wore a size 16/18 tall prior to being prego and now pick up size 22 pant from Rainbow - inexpensive and in style.
