Dear soon to be mom, Weight gain is common, but excessive weight gain should be avoided due to the increased complications associated with obesity. A well-balanced diet, mild to moderate exercise, and plenty of water is so important for you and your baby. Try to eat more vegetables and fiber, which can give you a full feeling sooner on less calories. Increasing water intake can also decrease your hungry and is so important as your body builds the intravascular volume. Try to limit your sweets...maybe once a week, as a celebration for another week closer to meeting your little one. Pregnancy is a difficult time, but a little encouragement can go a long way. Good luck! READ MORE

Yes, oral sex can be safe during pregnancy, with certain precautions. Fellacio and cunnilingus are methods using the tongue to stimulate the genitals, i.e., the penis or clitoris/vagina, respectively; both are safe. I caution not to have any contact if you or your partner has a "cold sore," which is most commonly the HSV 2 virus and can transmit this very serious (potentially deadly virus) to your child during birth. Also, other STIs (sexually transmitted infections) can be transmitted during oral sex and if there any lesions on the penis or vagina, have your healthcare provider examine the area. READ MORE
There can be several reasons for repeat ectopic pregnancies: previous tubal scars from infections, endometriosis, hydrosalpinx, to congenital malformation of the reproductive organs, just to name a few. I recommend seeing a gynecologist for a full evaluation, which would include imaging, cultures, laparoscopy and possibly a tubal ligation and pregnancy via IVF. It can be frustrating and expensive for couples to go through, but the pay off is a beautiful child by the two of you! Good luck, Dr. Dale R. Yingling, FACOG READ MORE

I am 6 months pregnant and I am suffering from a viral infection. Will the antibiotics have any impact on my baby?
Most antibiotics used in pregnancy are safe. Penicillin, amoxicillin, erythromycin, and cephalosporins are all safe. Stay away from doxycyclines or tetracyclines and fluoroquinolones. However, antibiotics are for bacterial infections, not for viral infections. There are antivirals used for influenza if started within 2 days of symptoms. I hope you feel better soon. READ MORE
Cramping during pregnancy can be sign of preterm labor. You should call your OB and have then evaluate you. However, an occasional "menstrual-like" cramp is normal, but only occasionally; no more then 3 or 4 times an hour, and less then one minute. More then seldom must be evaluated, and treated. READ MORE
Implantation bleeding oocurs at or around when the blastocyst attaches to the endometrial layer. The pregnancy test would have already positive, if it were implantation bleeding. So it sounds like the endometrial lining was delayed to release from the uterine wall. Warm regards, READ MORE
Yes, it maybe a UTI, but more likely a yeast infection. Consider trying an over-the-counter vaginal anti-fungal medication first. If no improvement, please see your gynaecologist or family doctor. READ MORE
Dear Concerned, Most dentist will place an abdominal shield on patients regardless. Nevertheless, if it was not placed on your stomach the xray beam is focused to the head and teeth, well above the reproductive organs. The likelihood of causing a miscarriage or fetal effects are extremely remote. You should have noting to be concern about your dental xray and pregnancy. READ MORE
Dear Concerned Mom; A vaginal birth after a cesarean delivery carries an increased risk of complications, the worst is a uterine rupture. A uterine rupture is where the scar separates, and can result in the expelling of the baby into the mother's abdomen. It is devastating for the baby, and many do not survive. Fortunately, it is a rare complication in women with a uterine incision in the lower part of the uterus and side-to-side. To clarify, the skin incision maybe side-to-side, but the uterine incision could be up-and-down, or an extension up the side of the uterus. Both carry an unacceptable risk for a rupture. The risk of that complication increases if a mother has to be induced. The lowest risk occurs if a mother goes into labor on her own, not needing medication to open the cervix. Often doctors will schedule a repeat C-section at their due date, hoping the mother will go into labor on her own before that c-section. Some physicians are uncomfortable allowing their patients to labor after uterine surgery, due to the increased risk. A few hospitals have strict guideline on allowing patients the option for a vaginal birth after a C-section; mostly due to the availability of other services, such as anesthesia and personnel in the laboring unit during the entire time a woman is in labor. So it may not be just the OB not wanting to allow a patient the vaginal birth. I would discuss their wishes of a vaginal delivery with the physician, and if they are unable accommodate her ask to be referred to another Obstetrician that can provide that service. Wishing you the best... READ MORE
The rash can be related to your pregnancy. There are several conditions that can range from mild itching to more severe liver disfunction. You should see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis.
