User :   i had sex with two men. one i had sex with my x December the 5th and my boy friend i had sex with the 5th, 6th 8th and 10. who could be the father of my child. i was ovulating 10, 11, 12th. the day of conception was the 12th. i found out the day of conception from my doctor through the ultra sound. the first day of my last period was Nov 27th
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   please let me read it.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   the person with whom you had intercourse during your ovulation time wil be the father of the child
Doctor :   sperms can live inside female genital for upto 48 hours after ejaculation
User :   why do all these other web sites say that sperm can live up to more than 7 days
Doctor :   so the chances of the person with whom you had intercourse during your ovulation time being the father of the baby you have concieved is more.
Doctor :   that is said in ideal cases, but the maximum of them lose their ability to penetrate and swim by end of 48 hours
Doctor :   only a few of them are alive and in good condition by end of 6th or 7 th day
User :   that was my theory tooo
Doctor :   also teh vaginal acidity tends to kill them, they survive due to the alkalinity of the semen fluid
User :   i figured that the older the sperm is the less likely it would penetrate
Doctor :   if that is not normal then their chances of survival too comes down
Doctor :   yes, you are very right
Doctor :   after 48 hours, the capacity ofr pebnetration comes down
Doctor :   *penetration
User :   my baby's father wants to have blood test done
Doctor :   so a 6th or 7th day old sperm can be taken as almost dead sperm
User :   that is what i figured that the 6th or 7th day too. i just needed to be able to confirm that. becuase all these other web sites
User :   have been stressing me out
Doctor :   and also among the competition faced due to the fresh ones, they hardly stand a chance to fertilise the egg
User :   i haven't gained any weight and my doctor said that its ok
Doctor :   the website are for information, you cannot apply all the information to a particular case, there is something called as practicality
Doctor :   and that is nature
Doctor :   in nature there is theory of 'survival of the fittest'
Doctor :   and the best gets the first chance
User :   my tummy is bigger but my weight gain is not high
User :   could there be something wrong
Doctor :   even if there a very rare chance that the old sperm would have fertilised the egg, it might result in some defect which the narure would not have affected
Doctor :   resulting is wastage of that pregnancy
Doctor :   since the pregnancy is continued, the chances of the newer sperms fertilizing the egg is more
Doctor :   weight gain in pregnancy can happen slowly, depending on the kind of diet you take and also baby growth
Doctor :   maximum weight gain happens after 6th month, as that is the time the baby also grows inside putting on weight
User :   i eat apples, bannas, pasta, carots
Doctor :   to be able to have a healthy weight at birth
User :   i am currently 14 wks and the baby is 7cm
User :   do i need to eat more
Doctor :   for a more detailed opinion on pregnancy diet consult a dietician

Doctor :   or open them in a new tab
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   in early pregnancy, if diet is not sufficient, then few ladies tend to lose minimal weight.
Doctor :   so make sure you divide your calories throughout the day since you cannot eat more amount at a time
Doctor :   and increase your calorie intake to 200-500 Kcals per week initially
User :   why do i feel so dizzy through out the day. i feel like my equal librium is off

Doctor :   you would have completed 3rd month and steped into 4th
Doctor :   so you are in The second trimester that lasts from 13 to 28 weeks
Doctor :   and now your energy requirements wold be about 300KCAls EXTRA per day
Doctor :   Not eating well at this time can affect the health of your baby adversely.
User :   i see when the baby is moving becuase my tummy is fluttering. is that normal
Doctor :   It affects not just the birth weight but; it predisposes the baby to many diseases in later life.
Doctor :   yes it is very normal to see your baby move if you are thin built
Doctor :   this wil continue to happen
User :   yes. i use to work out everyday
Doctor :   until the end of 28 weeks
