Hello,
Walking during pregnancy keeps your muscles toned, ensures better circulation, sleep better and also helps your body function regularly.if all symptoma are normal you can continue slow walks till the last few days.it helps you cope better with aches, morning sickness.stop all exrecises if dizziness present, leaking of fluid from vagina, bleeding / spotting, palpitation.hope you have a clear view reagrding this matter now

My wife experienced two missed abortions in last two years. Now she is pregnant(13 weeks). First Doctor suggested to take Hibor 2500 IU every day as soon as pregnancy is detected and taking Hibor2500(low molecular weight heparin) every day from last two months. The 13th week scan shows baby growth is very good. We consulted another doctor to whether to take Hibor 2500 injection daily or not. The second doctor suggested to stop Hibor and to take Ecosprin 75 mg tab daily. Which one(Hibor 2500 or Ecosprin 75 mg) is safe?.

I took a HPT 5 days before my expected period. I tested the next day and it was negative. My breasts are usually sore about a week to a week 1/2 before my period. They didn't start getting extremely sore until today. My period is due Sunday. I have three children and have had many symptoms of pregnancy including milky white discharge without smell, very tired and lethargic, nausea and some vomiting sensitivity to certain smells and my breasts are aching. Although a lot of these symptoms I'm having are usually pre menstrual symptoms, could I be pregnant?

Hello, I have been very nauseated the past 4 days. I have only gotten sick a couple times. I have had headaches and when I stand up my heart will race and i get kind of shakey. My stomach always hurts and seems to more after I eat something. My appetite is gone. I noticed that i started having a brownish discharge on tuesday. I also think I got bite by a spider on the back of my left leg right under my butt. I have been putting hydrocortisone cream on it which has been helping but I wasn t sure if that could be a factor of me feeling sick or of there is a chance of pregnancy.
