Hi, i am 13 weeks pregnant now. I have missed taking folic acid tablets that is prescribed during my first trimester many times. Will that affect the growth of baby of health in any way.
I am 30 years and late for my periods like 7 days.(usually i have irregular periods ranging from 30 to 37 days). I was sexually active from 30th day of my cycle. Could i be pregnant? i did the home test and found to be negative.
Considering the date you were sexually active, it is likely that you are not pregnant. 7 days delay is not enough for you to conclude, you need to wait for 10-12days before conclusion. However, the test is necessary.
Hi, I'm 38 years old and suspect that I'm pregnant 'coz I'm a week delayed.My LMP was 02/13/10 and I was waiting for my next period to arrive on 03/15/10 but it didn't. I'm afraid to do home PT because several years ago, I was a month delayed and my period came when I was about to do home PT and felt depressed. I feel weak lately and not much of an appetite for breakfast and looking for food that would satisfy me. In case, this would be my first pregnancy after 9 years of marriage.
