Please mothers and doctors I need help urgently. How do I relieve morning sickness?I can't keep any food down.
Dr. Dara Abiodun

Pregnancy can be an amazing ride, but it also comes with morning sickness that often can be tiring. My advice is for you to Eat little and often. Having an empty stomach can make sickness worse, Avoid foods with too much vegetable oil. When you feel nauseated (like vomiting), try to take foods with fibres like a biscuit or sniff lemons. Eat protein-rich foods and note that Cold meals can be better than hot ones and lastly, Get plenty of rest. All the best

Presently, there are no medical test that can diagnose autism. As the symptoms of autism vary, so do the routes to obtaining a diagnosis. It is not by blood tests or Xrays or lab test....It is through developmental evaluation by qualified and trained professionals
Can i still use Fansidar?I was given this Daraprin tablet during my 1st trimester and 2nd trimester at a previous hospital i registered. I moved from that...
You have to make sure it's prescribed by your caregiver. Fansidar is usually prescribed twice in one pregnant, the first dose as soon as you feel your baby's movement (btw 16-22weeks) then the second dose a month after. You can take it in your second trimester but not safe in the third trimester after 34 weeks cause of d risk of ur baby having jaundice. If u have malaria symptoms, see your care provider. They know d best drug of choice to prescribe depending on ur weeks of gestation. Besides, Fansidar is only meant for preventing malaria not for treating it. All the best!

Sometimes pid symptoms is like that of pregnancy so I will advice u go to hospital to complain..
Pls doc is ranferon 12 good in early pregnancy?
sure I think so. It's folic acid. If your doctor prescribed this medication, considering he/she has more medical experience and education than the majority of the women on here, I would bet it's safe to take. And if you're questioning it, why don't you call the doctor to voice your concerns? If you can't trust your Healthcare provider and doubt their abilities, then why not just switch? I'm almost positive they would not prescribe you anything that could potentially harm your baby.

Hello ma'am, you can continue breastfeeding with complementary feeding. The noise in the stomach may be due to the passage of gas in the stomach. Best wishes.
How do I do a pregnancy test with salt and what is the Procedure?
  • Best Answer
▷Are you wondering if you are pregnant or not? Or Are you suspecting to be pregnant due to unprotected sex you had lately? Here is a simple way to check by yourself if you are pregnant or not. It requires only salt. You do not have to visit a doctor or any health personnel. It is as simple and easy as ABC. Salt is considered to be a very clean chemical compound since it is crystalline in nature. This characteristic nature of salt makes it a very good and popular chemical compound for testing if an individual is pregnant or not. Also, its chemical content is highly effective in detecting a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) which is normally found in the urine of pregnant ladies or women. ****Things you would need for the salt pregnancy test: **** ▷1. A transparent glass bowl (you can use any other bowl but most people prefer transparent glass bowl in order to notice clearly and quickly if there is a change in colour or not after the test). ▷2. Salt. ▷3. Urine. ▷3. Stirrer (it can be a spoon, spatula or anything that can be used to stir). ****Procedure **** ▷Remove food reserves from the leaves of a potted plant by keeping it in the dark for 24 hours (example; in a cupboard). ▷Test for the starch to ensure no starch is present. ****Follow the procedure below to test for pregnancy **** ▷1. When you wake up early in the morning, the first thing to do is to go straight for the bowl and urinate into it. Note: only morning urine should be used in order to acquire better results. ▷2. Now add a considerable amount of salt to the urine in the bowl. ▷3. Stir the solution with your stirrer for a few seconds. ▷4. Leave the solution for about ten (10) minutes. ▷5. Now, carefully check and observe if there is a change or not. RESULTS ▷If there is no change to the salt and urine, then you are probably not pregnant (negative). ▷But if the salt in the urine slightly or greatly change or clumps and becomes like a milk cheese, then my dear, you are a hundred per cent (100%) pregnant (positive).

I am 6 months pregnant, Can i have green tea in pregnancy?
It's fine if you drink a cup or two. However, you shouldn't drink too much green tea, as it contains only a little less caffeine than standard tea, depending on how it's brewed. Take care.
