My wife is five months pregnant but I am feeling sick lately. Do dads also experience pregnancy?
Yes, it's possible. There will be so many emotions and overwhelming sense of responsibility the moment the baby comes home. So many sudden changes that dads are also prone to getting depressed, also known as Post Natal Depression. Here's an article that might help better understand Post Natal Depression in dads. http://www.babycentre.co.uk/a1046187/postnatal-depression-in-dadsAnonymous
- It's been a month since my period came. Took pregnancy test five times but have result is negative. Anyone have similar experience to share?
Are your menses regular? I did have a friend who tested negative using the basic pregnancy test kit (urine test) several times within the 3 months that she missed her period. Finally she went to the gynae and the gynae suggested a blood test. The blood test came up positive and she was 3+ month pregnant then. She gave birth to a lovely girl eventually. This case is not common though.Anonymous
- Can I apply pain-relief gel on my back? I am five months pregnant and have heard that it can have a negative effect on the baby.
There was once I want to use pain relief patch for my backpain during pregnancy and the package itself mentioned avoid to use during pregnancy. So I guess any form of pain relief gel/patch is not suitable for preggies. In the end, I joined prenatal pilates and it did help me to relief the backpain (and leg cramps too). There are some other natural alternatives to relief your backpain: http://www.fitpregnancy.com/pregnancy/pregnancy-health/get-relief-now-7-tips-easing-and-avoiding-back-painAnonymous
