What risk is there to a fetus if the mother has taken Anadin Extra several times in the first week of the pregnancy?
Congratulations It is highly unlikely the aspirin will have harmed your child. If you took it in the week after your period or the following week after ovulation that was before implantation so it would not have passed into the embryo. If you took it in the week before your period was due it is more likely that you would have had the period rather than found out you were pregnant. If you require pain relief for the rest of your pregnancy take acetominophen (paracetamol).

If your pregnant you shouldn't have any alchool. You never knowwhat is developing at that time. If you were drinking when yourbaby is developing a nose, eyes, mouth, brain, any part of the bodyyou could mess it up. things won't develop the way they aresupposed to. But i guess it just a roll of the d…ice...wether or notanything is developing...and no one can tell you what exactally isforming on what day...are you willing to take that chance? Answer 2: Children whose mothers drank even moderates amount ofalcohol during pregnancy can suffer from diasabilities, includingbehavioral problems and learning deficits. You don't have to be analcoholic to hurt your baby remarks Professor Ann Streissguth, ofthe fetal alcohol and drug unit at the University of Washington,"you just have to be drinking enough and pregnant." No minimal dosehas ever been established below which there are no risks. Thewisest course for women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancymay be not to drink any alcohol at all.

If you take an extra week of pills from a new pack then have your period and then finish the rest of the pack are you at risk for pregnancy?
You are not at increased risk of pregnancy from taking active pills instead of placebo pills as long as you don't have a pill-free interval of more than seven days.
Answer . National Geographic channel did a special show, called "In the Womb". I believe that in the first week of pregnancy, you can feel symptoms, if you KNOW you are pregnant. You may feel cramping in the abdomen area, and also if you have a sixth sense, you would be able to know . Besides a …missed period, many would say no. But, some people are more sensitive than others. (MORE)

Would there be a pregnancy risk if birth control was used for only one day and there was sexual contact 4 times in the week that followed?
Answer . Yes, especially if you didn't use any protection. (condom)\n. \nYou need to be on birth control for at least two weeks before you can engage in sexual activities.
Answer . \nAbsolutely. Because the uterus is growing in the same space the bladder usually occupies the bladder cannot fill as full. If i hurts however you may have a urine infection, also very common in pregnancy but see a doctor for treatment.\n. \nthe frequency goes away at around three mo…nths when the uterus gets bigger and grows out of the pelvis.

You have taken xanex twice in the last two weeks at 2 mg each time and just got a positive pregnancy test is it safe to continue with the pregnancy?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes its safe to continue with the pregnancy hun. However stop taking Xanax and consult your doctor or some pregnancy tests and ultrasound to make sure the baby is ok.\n. \n Answer \n. \nFrom the Physician's Desk Reference: Pregnancy; Xanax can be Teratogenic (may cau…se birth defects). Category D : Evidence of human fetal risk exists, but benefits may outweigh risks in some situations, such as life threatening situations for the mother or when safer drugs cannot be used. Benzodiazepams can potentially cause fetal harm when given to pregnant women. Xanax is assumed to be capable of causing an increased risk of congenital abnormalities when administered to a pregnant woman during the first trimester, because of experiences of other drugs of this class. The risk would be small considering the very small amount you took, but discuss it with your doctor. (MORE)
You probably won't see anything. Try to avoid a D&C unless Dr says it is a 'missed miscarriage'. Some of my early miscarriages at 5-6 weeks were re-absorbed or may be went down the toilet (horrible I know, I tied to avoid that). Once I found what might have been an embryo, grey, with 2 dark dots tha…t were may be were eyes. I just had my eighth miscarriage, this time at 10 weeks, baby probably stopped growing around 6-8 weeks, I 'gave birth' to an embryo and a placenta. Don't give up hope for next time, I have 2 kids, age 5 and 6 years old. Louise. (MORE)
If folic acid is not taken during the first two weeks of pregnancy will the embryo definitely be harmed or is there a chance that it will be OK?
There is a very high chance that the baby will be perfectly healthy. Folic acid is mostly taken to prevent spina bifida, which only occurs in a small percentage of pregnancies. It is a good idea to keep taking it now, as there are still many benefits.
No any study has been conducted as such. This is more or less a theoretical question, as foetus has nothing to digest except few epithelial cells. So probably at the end of the first trimester fetus can secrete the pancreatic secretions. Fetus consume the amniotic fluid and urinates the same continu…ously. After birth only baby needs the pancreatic secretions to digest the colostrum or the milk. (MORE)
Implantation occurs when the egg is fertilized by the sperm and it attaches itself to the uterine lining. So I could you could say that implantation happens almost inanimately after conception!
Surprisingly enough, doctors consider the first week of pregnancy to be the week of your period even though you are not technically pregnant yet.
Besides a missed period, many would say no. But, some people are more sensitive than others.
yes. Many woman have a first period but found out a few weeks later that they are pregnant.... Your symptoms of pregnancy will usually appear anywhere from the first week of your expected period to 1-2 weeks after your first week of expected period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly incl…ude:. missed period . tender/swollen breasts . change in color of the breasts . fatigue . Here is a link to a website that will calculate the probability of your pregnancy:. http://www.thepregnancytest.com/. Conception usually occurs about 5-7 days after intercourse . Your most fertile period is about 5 days before ovulation . For most(but not all) women ovulation occurs about 14 days prior to her period. (MORE)
If you are thinking about drinking, then just DON'T but if you have already drank, you and your baby should be fine. I have heard stories of people being 6 and 7 weeks pregnant and having a blast on their 21st birthday before they realized they were pregnant and their babies are fine. Usually a smal…l amount of alcohol consumption at the very beginning of pregnancy is not too big of a deal but binge drinking can have some effects. If you are still pretty worried maybe you should just contact your physician. (MORE)
It could mean that, and I'm deeply sorry if that's the case. Please see your doctor. It's not a rule though, sometimes you can have cramping and not miscarry. You're best bet would be to see your doctor ASAP and put your mind at rest.
Your spelling must be off, however if it is a drug call your doctor immediately for appropriate direction.. Contact the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222
\nYour symptoms of pregnancy will usually appear anywhere from the first week of your expected period to 1-2 weeks after your first week of expected period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly include missed period, tender/swollen breasts, change in color of the breasts, fatigue, nausea/vomi…ting, increased sense of smell, and weight gain.\nHere is a link to a website that will calculate the probability of your pregnancy: http://www.thepregnancytest.com/ actually.... my girlfriend is 3 months pregnant right now.. she experienced mild headaches.. frequent urination and a slight to non existent nausea\n. \n. \nDuring the first 2 weeks of pregnancy, symptoms are really light (sometimes even non-existent for some). Once an ovum is fertilized it travels down the fallopian tube and implants into the uterine wall. Keep in mind this takes 5-8 days. After which the egg starts multiplying (very slowly). So after 14 days, you might experience some grogginess, mood changes, and difference in stress levels but nothing else too physically draining. Morning sickness doesnt occur until 1-1.5 months after pregnancy. (MORE)
\nKnowing the first week would indicate a heightened sensitivity. The first symptom usually is nausea.
Complications that can affect the unborn baby vary, depending on how many weeks pregnant you are when you catch chickenpox. The risk of chickenpox during pregnancy is that the infant may contract it. If the mother develops her chickenpox rash between 6 and 21 days before delivery, her baby's case is… likely to be mild and require no treatment. But if the mother's rash develops later - from 5 days before to 2 days after delivery - and no steps are taken to shield her fetus, the newborn has a 25 percent chance of getting chickenpox between 5 and 10 days after birth. It might be severe: Up to 30 percent of infected babies die if not treated. (MORE)
Well, i went to get my ultrasound yesterday, and I coulndt see my baby either. Im 15 years old, by the way.

Dont worry tho- everything is probly alright. the fetus is probly REALLY small- TOO small to see. it also depends on the size of the mother too. You'll be okay. If you need to talk, just messege me back or somthing Kristen. (MORE)
You will not know your first week of pregnancy. The first week of pregnancy, you are not technically even pregnant yet. This is the week of your last menstrual period. 2nd week- The second week of pregnancy is when the sperm from the male fertilizes your egg that is released during ovulation. … 3 weeks - At three weeks pregnant, you most likely don't even know that you are pregnant. All that is present is about 500 microscopic cells. The cells haven't formed an embryo or fetus yet. This is when the zygote (the microscopic cells that aren't yet formed into an embryo/fetus) implants itself into your uterine lining. 4 Weeks -Well at four weeks pregnant, the embryo has just now implanted itself. The fetus has not yet developed any limbs or any obvious features yet. It is about 1/25" and weighs less than one gram. This is probably the week you will find out you are pregnant. This week the placenta is being created, as well as the umbilical cord and the baby is now working on developing actual features. The embryo is now made of three layers that will develop into functioning organs. 5 weeks - There have been some HUGE changes from week 3 to week 5! Congratulations, your fetus is starting to actually look like a fetus! It now is beginning to develop little stubby limbs and a little head. It is about 2 millimeters and still weighs less than one gram (about the size of a poppy seed). This is the week your baby will develop its heart beat which will in turn means your baby also has blood circulation and it's first functioning organ! The placenta and umbilical cord are still developing at this point. Also at this week the beginning of the brain, cardiovascular system, nervous system and reproductive system are in the making!

Yes, the baby can hear you at this point! Not only can the baby hear you but can also hear Daddy, dogs, tv, radio etc. My doc said at 20 weeks it is a good time to start reading to the baby
Toxins usually cause more severe medical problems if exposure is during the first eight weeks of pregnancy rather than during the later weeks Why?
The first 8 weeks are the prime time for forming organs andmaturing nervous systems, including the brain. If you interruptdevelopment at that time, the organs will never be normal. Ifexposures happen later, the fetus may suffer ill effects, but theorgans will be at least be mostly fully formed by th…en. (MORE)
If mifeprostone and misoprostol was taken on 12 weeks pregnancy 3 days later fetus is still alive on ultrasound if pregnancy continues how would it affect the fetus during pregnancy or after?
misoprostol it's a PG(prostaglandine) just to provok the uterus contaction with the effect of mifepristone on the relaxation of the uterus and the opening of the cervix,so that the abortion can be completed...so if the baby still alive after using all those drugs ,it means the level is minor for the… abortion...Those actives ingredients are also produced by the woman body....So honey don't worry about your baby....and i advise you don't harm that innocent living body,you never know what he/she will become for you...Wish u good luck,is not easy but just trust in God....

I have taken Ibuprofen 4-5 times on different occasions without realising I was pregnant the total dosage of 400mg a day i am 6 wks is my fetus at risk?
No you will be fine, but you should only really take paracetamol from now on. They warn you not to take these things when you're pregnant but unless you had taken them every day for weeks it shouldn't have caused any damage.
Only if it made you bleed. If it did not work you have to see the doctor again.
No that is not how it works. If you have taken birth control the first weeks of pregnancy like many women have because they don't know they are pregnant, don't worry. If you are trying to take it to abort that wont work either. See related link for more info in abortion.
The fetus is what they call the unborn baby after 3 months of growing in the uterus. At that time it is now considered an unborn child or fetus instead of a blacocyst or mass growth of cells.
Why does Toxins usually cause more severe medical problems if exposure is during the first eight weeks of pregnancy rather than during the later weeks?
Because it's in thise first weeks the main organs that will keep the body going is formed, the brain and heart etc.
The most likely time to conceive is in the middle of your menstrual cycle so your due date is calculated from two weeks before your missed period (ie at the time of ovulation and therefore the time most likely for gestation to have begun
What is the condition called with the problems to the fetus due to the mother smoking during pregnancy?
If you smoke during pregnancy will result to intrauterine retarded growth because nicotine can constrict blood vessel.

The baby is not a foetus yet. The 12 week scans always show a foetus. Never will an 8 week scan show a foetus, the pregnancy is 9 months because it has to grow.
Very dangerous! Deadly!

A 23 week old fetus is about 500 grams in weight, and measures 29 centimetres from head to toe. At this point their hearing is established and lungs are developing.
The death of an embryo or fetus in the first 20 weeks of pregnancyis called a spontaneous abortion.
Your fetus' sex is determined at fertilization. However, the external genitalia don't start developing until the 11th week of gestation, but will still not be visible on ultrasound.
