Dating during pregnancy

During a "conventional" pregnancy, the man usually takes on whatever role his partner requires of him in order to support her. Ideally, he would run errands, attend antenatal classes with her, prepare himself to be with her during labor and have the home ready for mother and baby to return to. This might sound wonderful to a single pregnant woman who doesn't have such luxuries, but remember, even in a traditional relationship, some men are more willing than others to help out! What you need to decide is whether or not you want to try and do these things alone, or perhaps ask a close friend or relative to help you. There's no reason why your mother or sister or friend can't be with you in Lamaze classes or in the labor room if that's what you want.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed during pregnancy. It affects about 1 in 3,000 women who are pregnant. Because breasts typically enlarge and change texture during pregnancy, changes from cancer may be difficult to detect. Or they may not appear to be abnormal. As a result, pregnant women with breast cancer may be diagnosed later than non-pregnant women.

The good news -- or bad news, depending on how you look at it -- is that “sex during pregnancy is extremely safe for most women with uncomplicated, low-risk pregnancies,” says Dayna Salasche, MD, an associate professor of obstetrics/gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and an obstetrician at Northwestern Specialists for Women, both in Chicago. “Some people feel like they enjoy sex during pregnancy more and others enjoy it less,” she tells WebMD.
