Hi I'm a 42-year-old women with a 24-year-old man. I would like to have a baby.
Ask the Midwife
Well we are TTC and Ive had a few issues I guess. I will give you a short timeline and then ask my specific question.
Wednesday July 7th- unprotected sex
I am 3 weeks postpartum. I had an easy labor and delivery and my recovery has been pretty smooth as well. Even with a newborn and a 4-year-old at home I have felt really good and my husband and I decided to have sex last night.
We took it slow (for fear of it hurting). It was great. I wasn't sure what to expect as far as bleeding or spotting but I had no spotting right after or in the morning with when I woke up.
What are the chances I could still have a vaginal delivery with vaginal warts? What are the risks if I do have a vaginal delivery?
I just recently found out that I am pregnant. I missed my monthly and took a home test it came out positive. I am very happy about this. I have made a doctor's appointment, however it is not for another 2 weeks. I am a bit nrevous about this first appointment as I have no idea what is going to happen or what to expect. So I was wondering what to expect at this appointment, what questions will be asked, what will be done and things I should be asking about?
Thanks so much.
I'm 23 weeks pregnant, and I'm finding it more and more strange thatthough my baby is kicking like mad daily, and I'm being able to see her kicks already, that I'm not showing,.... at least to me. One of my hopes during my pregnancy was to be able to have the massive pregnant belly that screams my good fortune, and yet I feel gypped.
Has anyone experienced a semi-heavy spotting? As far as right now i am unsure if i am pregnant.I have had been sexually active all last week. Now i might be spotting or i may have my period. However, i'm not supposed to get my period untill the 22nd and i got whatever this is the 14th. It was extremely light the 1st day, heavy the next, and now its back to light and it seems to have stopped. It's also a deep redish brown.
Me and my boyfriend have been trying to get pregnant for the last month, and I haven't been on any type of birth control prior to trying to conceive, other than using condoms. I don't have any medical history that could cause me not to get pregnant. So I have missed my period, and have cramp pains almost like I'm going to get my period, but it doesn't come.
I was given antibiotics to treat GBS through IV during the delivery of my first baby 2 years ago.
Now I am 35 weeks of my 2nd pregnancy, at 34 weeks, my doctor tested GBS on test and the result was negative and was told that no antibiotics is required even the labor would be on 40 or 42 weeks. My questions are
1) I thought that GBS cannot be treated, why this time it was negative?
2) Will the GBS come back any time between 34 weeks to 42 weeks? why the doctor was so sure that I don't need to have the antibiotics?
I just found out unexpectedly that I am pregnant with baby #3. I had my period (or at least I thought I did) the beginning of the month but it was very very light, I never even soaked through a tampon/pad. I originally went to the doctors because I thought that I may be having a kidney infection when the doctor came back and told me that my blood test came back positive for pregnancy.
