#PregnancyFAQs #Month9
When should I go on maternity leave?
The timing varies depending on the pregnancy and the type of work you do. In uncomplicated pregnancies, I find many women wait until their due date or when they have the baby to start maternity leave. Some women may start maternity leave sooner if in significant discomfort or if there is a problem with the pregnancy.

#PregnancyFAQs #Month4
When can I find out my baby's gender? Most women are able to learn the gender of their baby during the "anatomy ultrasound" at 16 to 18 weeks. The cell-free DNA test available in the first trimester for Down syndrome screening also provides information about the baby's gender. #QueensHospital #pregnancy #pregnant #pregnantbelly #pregnancyphotos #pregnancylife #pregnantwoman

#PregnancyFAQs #Month5
Why am I so gassy? The increase in progesterone hormone in pregnancy slows digestion, providing more time for gas to be produced. As your uterus enlarges, your intestines are shifted and crowded in your abdomen. This slows digestion even more.� #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #preggymom #pregnantbelly #pregnantwoman #pregnancylife #pregnancyjourney

#PregnancyFAQs #Month7
What can I do about leg pain during pregnancy?
Leg pain is common, especially in the last trimester. Some helpful options include elevating your legs as often as possible, sleeping on your side with a pillow propped between your legs, staying well hydrated, wearing compression socks and wearing supportive, comfortable shoes. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #preggymom #preggy

#PregnancyFAQs #Month5
Will I get stretch marks?
Stretch marks are a natural result of the skin stretching during pregnancy. It's common for most women. Stretch mark creams rarely meet the claims advertised and often genetics play a major role. Most pregnancy resources recommend keeping the skin well-moisturized. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #preggymom #stretchmarks #pregnancyjourney #pregnantwoman

#PregnancyFAQs #Month4
How much weight should I gain during pregnancy?The recommended weight gain is about 25 to 35 lbs. These numbers shift depending on your pre-pregnancy weight and BMI (i.e., underweight, normal weight, overweight) and also if you are carrying one baby versus twins. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnancyannouncement #pregnantbelly #pregnancyphotos #pregnancyjourney #pregnantwoman #pregnancylife #preggymom

#PregnancyFAQs #Month5
How much food should I be eating during pregnancy?
You need about 300 extra calories a day, especially later in your pregnancy, when your baby grows quickly. These calories should come from nutritious foods. #QueensHospital #pregnancy #pregnant #pregnantbelly #pregnantwoman #pregnancylife #pregnancyjourney

#PregnancyFAQs #Month9
How can I prepare for breastfeeding?
Many women purchase or rent breast pumps before delivery. There is also patient information about breastfeeding available through your midwife or doctor. Most hospitals and birth centers have breastfeeding specialists available to help you with breastfeeding after you give birth.

#PregnancyFAQs #Month9
What happens if my baby is breech?
Breech is when the baby's feet or butt is oriented towards the birth canal instead of your baby's head. As you get further along in pregnancy, the position of your baby is checked at each prenatal visit. This is usually done by feeling your stomach with our hands. We can also tell by the location of the baby's heartbeat. If we suspect breech, the next step is to look with an ultrasound. If breech is confirmed we offer several options to see if we can get your baby to turn. #QueensHospital #pregnant #preggymom #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #pregnancylife #pregnancyjourney #breechbaby

#PregnancyFAQs #Month8

#PregnancyFAQs #Month8
How can I sleep better during the third trimester?
Comfortable sleeping can be challenging. Propping a pillow between your legs may help, as well as full-body pregnancy pillows. Avoid sleeping on your back at this stage. Sleeping on the left side improves blood circulation to the baby.

How often should I feel my baby kick?
You should feel your baby kick anywhere between 18 to 25 weeks. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not experience kicking until close to 25 weeks. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #preggymom #preggy #pregnantwoman #pregnancylife #pregnancyjourney #firstkick #babymoves

#PregnancyFAQs #Month5
Is it safe to take a hot bath or soak in a hot tub while I'm pregnant? Hot tubs and saunas probably should be avoided in pregnancy. Heat exposure in the first trimester has been associated with neural tube defects. It's OK to take baths, as long as the water isn't too hot. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #pregnancyjourney #pregnancylife

Is it safe to have my hair colored or get my nails done while I'm pregnant?
There are no good studies on occasional use of hair products during pregnancy. The research available suggests dyes are not highly toxic. I advise my patient to use natural dyes if possible and wait until after the first trimester. The same advice goes for nail salons. Try locating salons that use natural polishes or make sure it is a space with good ventilation. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnantbelly #pregnancy #preggymom #pregnancyphotos #pregnancyjourney #pregnancylife #pregnantwoman #pregnancyisbeautiful #maternityshoot #maternityhospital #cairo #egypt #egyptianmothers #egyptianwomen

#PregnancyFAQs #Month4 When will I feel the baby move? We can see baby movement with ultrasound as early as 7 to 8 weeks. Quickening is the term for a mother's first sensation of baby movement, which is often described as a fluttering sensation. This is usually felt around 16 weeks. For some women, actual fetal kicking isn't felt until to closer to 25 weeks, especially with the first pregnancy. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #pregnancylife #pregnantwoman #pregnancyjourney #pregnancyphotos #mothertobe #maternityshoot #maternityhospital #cairo #heliopolis #egypt

#PregnancyFAQs #Month3
What happens during an ultrasound appointment?When ultrasounds are performed early in pregnancy, it is usually to confirm a heartbeat and assess your gestational age, which is important for establishing your due date. These ultrasounds may best be performed vaginally. #QueensHospital #pregnancylife #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #pregnantwoman #pregnancyjourney #preggymom #momtobe #mothertobe #expectant #expectantmother #maternityshoot #maternityhospital #maternity #cairo #heliopolis #egyptianwomen

#PregnancyFAQs #Month3
When will I start to show?
Every woman is different. If you're a first-time mom, you could begin developing a baby bump any time between 12 and 16 weeks. But if this isn't your first baby, you may start showing sooner. #QueensHospital #pregnant #pregnancy #pregnantbelly #pregnancyannouncement #bellybump #pregnancybump #preggo #preggymom #pregnantlife #pregnancyglow #pregnancyphoto #pregnancyjourney #pregnancyshoot #maternityshoot #queenshospital #cairo #heliopolis #egyptianwomen #cairobride
