There’s a reason i hate these “Funny reasons my son is crying” posts: The reasons may seem absurd and funny to you but to the child they’re valid. And i believe children deserve a right to express their (very valid and real) emotions. It’s a matter of respect. And if a child feels belittled for expressing emotions, how do you expect them to grow up as adults who know how to deal with emotions in a healthy way? And here’s a quote to think about:
Chocolate has small amounts of caffeine, so be sure to keep your cocoa consumption under 300 to 400 milligrams per day to avoid the risk of a miscarriage.
Anonymous asked: So I had sex about the end of June and I did that after my period. I have been having nausea,dizziness, bloating, constipation etc I have also had urges to puke. I am going to grade 9 in sept... Could I be pregnant ??
Yes, it’s possible. I recommend you take a test. You can buy one in a supermarket or pharmacy. It’s best to take it in the morning, the result is more reliable then.
Anonymous asked: Are Personal herbal devices Vape-pens bad for pregnant women? There's no drugs or nicotine in the oil but I was wondering if it's bad for the baby or not
The problem with Vape-pens is that, so far, they are unregulated. This means they have not been tested officially to check their safety. As you’re using one, you can’t be sure what’s in the vapour you’re breathing in. This means that neither can you be sure which chemicals are reaching your unborn baby. Your safest bet is not to use them. If you use them as a way to help you quit smoking cigarettes, talk to your doctor or midwife. They can help you find a safer alternative.

I had unprotected sex at the end of June and it was a bit after my period. Could I be pregnant? I had a little tiny bit of pinkish coloured blood but stopped after that and it was only like droplets
Yes, it’s possible. I recommend you take a pregnancy test. You can buy one in a supermarket or pharmacy. it’s best to take the test in the morning, the result is more reliable then.
Anonymous asked: So I just found out im about 3 months pregnant. I have been smoking cigarettes daily and have drank alcohol sometimes and got very drunk. I also have been smoking a little bit of weed.. Do yoh think my babh will be ok.. I want to keep him/her..
The most important thing is that you change your lifestyle now. Don’t smoke, don’t drink and don’t do any drugs from now on. If you start to live healthy now, you increase the chance of your baby being okay. In most cases, you would already have had a miscarriage. You didn’t, so there’s hope you were lucky and didn’t harm your baby. Still, it’s very important to let go of your bad habits now. I published a post with online resources that inspire you to stop smoking. If you need help to stop drinking or smoking weed, don’t be afraid to ask for professional help. Your doctor or midwife will not judge you. Asking for support is a sign you care for your baby. And if you don’t stop, you will harm your baby and yourself. I wrote several articles about drug use in pregnancy (Cigarettes, Alcohol, Drugs). The articles are mostly about the possible risks and complications. It’s important that you know about them as they are good reasons to stop now (and having a reason makes it easier to stop), however they’re not meant to scare you into inactivity. You can still turn away from those scary outcomes. Quit now and talk to your doctor/midwife about it. They need to know, so they can offer you and your baby the best care possible. If you find out you have trouble to quit on your own, there are resources available to you, both online or local and your doctor can tell you more about them. You’re not a bad person because you have bad habits, so don’t be ashamed. You want to keep your baby and that’s beautiful. I believe you’ll be able to raise a happy baby, if you start living healthy now. Next to staying away from drugs, a healthy lifestyle includes daily prenatal vitamins, regular prenatal visits, healthy eating(enough vegetables and fruit, whole grains and lots of water) and emotional support.
Anonymous asked: I had a really, really light period that lasted 6 days. But, most of the days except for one, I could go without wearing any tampons or pads, and be totally fine. Like, I only knew I was "bleeding" when I wiped ... And even then it was barely blood anyway, but like that weird brown stuff at the beginning of the period ... And the one day I did bleed a little heavier, it was still really light, way lighter than how much I normally bleed ... Could that have been spotting? We don't use protection..
It’s possible that it was implantation bleeding but usually it doesn’t last 6 days. I recommend you take a pregnancy test and visit your doctor to rule out any other causes. And get enough rest!
