It depends on whether there are any complications in this pregnancy like low lying placenta, big baby, pre-eclampsia etc ; and also what you want and what advice your doctor has given you. In a low risk pregnancy you have the best chance of having a succesful normal delivery if you go into labour yourself.

You cannot revert back to your previous self before deliveries, your daughters need your time. Do exercises like cycling as it is good for reducing the tummy & lower abdominal muscles including the lower reproductive tract but no jogging or running, it makes tissues lag downwards. Do yoga, lift weights -it helps tone up arms and make breasts firm. Eat a high protein diet like toned milks, eggs lots of fresh fruits and greens. Drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice with a spoon of honey everyday on empty stomach. Target should be around 3-4 kgs per month, more weight loss rapidly will make you weak and unfit for routine work.

As she remembers her last periods were around 25 may. She feels hungry too these days, or may be we are just thinking off that ways. Please help me. As she is just 18. How much should we wait. Or please tell a simple way of getting it over. I expect a detailed answer since none of the previous doctors answered in detail. PLEASE SIR/MAM.

Rh sensitization can occur during pregnancy if you are Rh-negative and pregnant with a developing baby (fetus) who has Rh-positive blood. In most cases, your blood will not mix with your baby's blood until delivery. It takes a while to make antibodies that can affect the baby, so during your first pregnancy, the baby probably would not be affected.

I underwent oral sex. My would-be touched my vagina with his hand. Do I become pregnant if there is sperm or water like substance (seen before getting sperms) touches vagina? I missed a month of periods. And I took regestrone for 5 days and I got periods. Now I see clot like bleeding (looks like thick mucous). What is all this? Was I pregnant and then aborted? Or is it normal kind of bleeding?

Hello, Since there has been no penetration, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Also, regesterone does not promote periods. Stay relaxed.

Normally heart beat of baby should be there at 2 months (8 weeks) so if absent is a concern .It most likely falls into category of missed bortion so needs urgent intervention.

Dear Lybrate user. If you had semen inside your mouth and if you licked your wife's vagina with semen inside your mouth, there is a chance of pregnancy. Take care.
