According to one of Sarah's pregnancy books, Babu is currently hopping around in the womb like a Mexican jumping bean. Which means that the kid is already a better dancer than either of his/her parents.
Mental illness runs in my husband's family. Even though I am exceedingly happy to be pregnant, I'm afraid this risk will prevent me from bonding with my baby. As she gets older, I feel like I'll always be searching for clues or telltale behavior of mental illness.
Guidelines suggesting that women limit tuna, Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel and Tilefish consumption, to just 6 ounces per week during pregnancy fall short in not emphasizing the importance of fish preparation, and how this influences many of the dangers linked to fish consumption
Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I'm not sure whether to worry about this or not. I had my last period between June 10th through June 14th. My OB confirmed the pregnancy and I haven't had any bleeding. My HcG levels my levels were good. Since I miscarried last year, she sent me for an ultrasound for viability and dates.
At my first ultrasound the sonographer saw an empty gestational sac. She said I may have a blighted ovum.
The following day I had more blood drawn for HCG levels. My levels were rising as they should. The OB said not to worry about a blighted ovum.
