  • Hello everyone �� hope every woman on here is doing well and hope you are having a good day.
    I believe we are all here to share ideas and to help each other in this group /page.
    I know a lot of people are passing through many difficulties presently and some are trying to make out something to save their marriage.
    AM HERE TO TELL YOU HOW I GOT PREGNANT ��
    every sister on here trying to conceive on this group, I think it’s time you need to try natural herbal medicine for you to have your own child without delay and no side effects. I got married 2010 and I had miscarriage in 2012 and another miscarriage in 2015�� am in tears writing this story because I never believed I will have my own child one day. My husband has already been hanging out with other women and it hurts me so much�� I decided to make a way for my self to save my marriage. In 2018 I meant a herbal doctor in South Africa and he gave me some herbal supplements and instructed me on how to take them. I did but I still couldn’t take in�� I didn’t stop because I know one day God will answer my prayers. As you all know if God want to bless you it will always be through someone you don’t even know. I saw a post of Facebook about a doctor in Africa who help people with herbal medicine to cure all type of disease and to clean your body system, I contacted him and explained everything to him, he then said he will give me his herbal medication and all I should do is believe because it’s God that has the right answer. He sent the herbs to me and instructed me on how to take them. I did and I started feeling some changes in my body. I told my husband everything and we decided to try again. I couldn’t believe when the doctor told me I was already 5weeks pregnant ��I want to say a very thank you to him and also all glory to God. If you want to also get yours you can reach him on WhatsApp. +2347044323022. Explain whatever problem you have to him and he will solve it for you. All thanks to doctor @dr-osemudiamen.������

  • With all of these compensations during pregnancy and even in other situations that affect our bodies, I have to say that God is amazing!! Our bodies are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Thank you Osmosis for the explanation.

  • Hey I just had a quick question! My first birth I didnt drink red raspberry leaf but I am this time. Do you know if it may lower tearing or need to be cut?

  • Thanks to [email protected] com for helping me get rid of my herpes simplex virus with his herbal medicine and dr uyyala can also cure various diseases and viruses from the body system and also have meds for detox and cleanse of the body system

  • I’m pretty fed up with this whole Covid thing. I haven’t been to any of my wife’s appointments in nearly 6 weeks. I’m not alone. I sit outside with all the other loving fathers. Who have to get news of their own children health and well being second hand. Which sucks because these are the most loving dedicated fathers.

  • Could you do a video on fundal massage? And if it’s necessary. I get a lot of mixed opinions and you’re seems to be what is best for mom and not just standard hospital “we must”

  • I’ll miss these times when you would visit the doctor without any concerns.. I have my anatomy scan next week and I’m scared af to go to the hospital because of the so many cases of COVID-19 ��

  • I think prolactin stimulates milk production (which it why it gears up a couple of days after delivery when estrogen and progesterone clear out), and oxytocin is responsible for let-down reflex.

  • Wow, you are so so lucky they let you take a video. I have my 20 week scan Tuesday and I know already they won’t allow me to film. Feel so anxious going alone as I’ve had complications in previous pregnancies and complications this time round ��I’m from the UK! X

  • I’m going to share this video with ALL of my clients because it will definitely help them to understand what’s going on, especially with first time moms! Thanks!

  • I read plenty of superb reviews on the internet about how exactly Clegenatur Methods (google search it)can help you enhance your bust size naturally. Has any one tested out this popular breast enlargement method?

  • We learned that heart rate does, in fact, rise during pregnancy…about 10-15 points to be exact. However, we learned that blood pressure, despite increased blood volume, actually goes down in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy about 5-10 mmHg. The BP in the first and third trimesters should be at pre-pregnancy levels. The explanation for this is that the hCG causes relaxation of the vascular system. And this is talking about a normal, healthy pregnancy with no complications.

  • In physiological pregnancy, BP doesn’t change or drops a little, despite higher blood volume. That’s because of decreased systemic resistance and vasodilation that is driven by progesterone, and is primary to the increase of blood volume.

  • How long after your water breaks do you “have” to give birth? I’ve heard a couple days of people not having baby even after. Is baby safe without fluid?

  • I alway like your movies, but I think that the women in this video speaks so very fast. It took me 35 minutes to watch since I had to stop and play some of it again and again and again. So just a thumbs up in general and an advice for this woman to slow down her talking.

  • I HV no words to praise yr artical. Omg it’s too much knowledgeable n explained very precisely. I am fan of you, thanks so much to make so easy to understand all changes in our body during pregnancy. Especially effact of hormones in all part of body. Thank so much it’s make my study so easy n clear my lots of doubt.

  • Would a pregnancy test after week 9 have a higher chance to say ‘not pregnant’ when you are? Because of the dropping B-hCG levels?

  • Human creation in Quran

    وَلَقَدۡ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ مِن سُلَٰلَةٖ مِّن طِينٖ

    We have created man from an extract of clay.
    (Surah Al-Mu’minun, verse 12)

    ثُمَّ جَعَلۡنَٰهُ نُطۡفَةٗ فِي قَرَارٖ مَّكِينٖ

    Then We made him a sperm-drop in a firm resting place.
    (Surah Al-Mu’minun, verse 13)

    ثُمَّ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلنُّطۡفَةَ عَلَقَةٗ فَخَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡعَلَقَةَ مُضۡغَةٗ فَخَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡمُضۡغَةَ عِظَٰمٗا فَكَسَوۡنَا ٱلۡعِظَٰمَ لَحۡمٗا ثُمَّ أَنشَأۡنَٰهُ خَلۡقًا ءَاخَرَۚ فَتَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ أَحۡسَنُ ٱلۡخَٰلِقِينَ

    Then We turned the sperm-drop into a clot, then We turned the clot into a fetus-lump, then We turned the fetus-lump into bones and We clothed the bones with flesh; thereafter We developed it into another creature. So glorious is Allah, the Best of the creators.

    (Surah Al-Mu’minun, verse 14)
    Thanks

  • Hello!
    Very good vid thank you. just one thing… it would be nice having the weight change in Kg? or maybe a way of converting?

    EDIT: 1 pound = 0.45359237 Kg
    so 25 = 11.339 Kg
    and 35 = 15.875 Kg

  • I just scheduled mine for the sixth with my first my husband when to every single appointment with me and this time around he can only go to my ob appointments no ultrasounds it’s extremely upsetting

  • Your videos are so damn good. They make me understand so many things in such a short time. I am forever obliged to you people. Thank you

  • My husband wanted to know if babies can cry in the womb? I know there is no sound but is it possible for them to have a silent cry

  • I have my 20 weeks scan in 2 weeks. Super excited they will all one person to come fortunately which will be the father. Sadly we can record though but at least he can be there. In my first trimester I had to go to the er twice and the second time going they didn’t allow him in so I was there for 2 hrs alone ☹️.

  • After a miscarriage with my s.o, and someone I live with they still consider my s.o a visitor and make him wait in the car during our appointments for our now rainbow baby/second chance.. He’s so upset he cant come in and I can’t blame him.

  • I’m in Germany and I’m pretty sure my husband will be asked not to enter the doctor’s surgery when I have my 20 week scan on Wednesday. I will try and film some of it to show him if he has to wait outside, but I’m really hoping he can be there because hopefully we will discover the gender!

  • Fathers should never be considered a visitor to their own child’s visit..this must stop for the wellness of the mother during this..and another thing..we can do this safety..we should never be separated at the beginning of a life or at the end..hospitals need to get it together and find a way to do this safely..and fathers need to be considered patients..that is nonsense

  • Not true the babies red blood cells do actually get into the mother’s bloodstream, so it definitely mixes but you likely meant not to a high degree, the fact that is does mix is why genetic tests on baby can be done by drawing blood from the mother. It’s also why rh neg mothers need a shot with anti RH in it so it doesn’t attack the next baby that rh pos.

  • Your videos are so informational. Short and sweet. It’s about time we had an experienced professional on Youtube that gets straight to the point and doesn’t babble on for 10 minutes about random things! Thank you. I’m due the 28th of March ��

  • Visually the Best Video i saw on YouTube
    Very Helpful Video
    Thankyou
    Also plz with every new section, or added element, move the camera and show 360°.

  • I have my 20 week ultrasound tomorrow. This is my first pregnancy and the first ultrasound I am getting. I am so upset that my husband can’t come. This was supposed to be something we share. I wanted him to be able to connect with the baby more since he’s not the one who’s pregnant. I wanted him to hold my hand during the appointment. I want him to be there if there is anything wrong. I want him to look at the images and see what I can’t. This was supposed to be a bonding experience for us a first time parents. I feel like I should be excited to see the baby and excited to find out if it’s a boy or girl but I’m not. I am dreading the appointment. I have just been crying. I just want him to be there.

  • A girl I know whose biological clocks alarm bell was ringing had a baby. I swear to god I knew she was knocked up before she did. It was so obvious in how her entire dynamic changed on her Facebook page. I thought, that girl is and 10 months later she popped. It was so not surprising.

  • nice explanation, Guys dont buy paid version of Osmosis, I love it explanation but u will not get anything out from buying the paid version. everything is given free here. Just telling you ahead so u would not land up spending the money for something that comes for free here in youtube.

  • im confused about the action of progesteron in treatmeant of endometrial carcinoma?? how it oppose estrogen?? how these hormones works together and MOA of COCP???

  • 1Blood pressure decreases during pregnancy, not increases. And that’s because of the hormonal effect of Progesterone (relaxation of smooth muscles).

    2Part of the weight gain is also attributed to sodium and water retention, and in whole is equal to 11 kg (this is the value for a normal healthy weight gain during pregnancy).

  • I have been trying to get pregnant for a long time, and this video helped me understand a lot. Thank you!
    Turns out I am a guy and can’t get pregnant.

  • Loved this, just would have been amazing if you could also explain how our other organs lay/rest since the placenta has moved things around quite a bit.

  • increased blood pressure?
    shouldn’t it be Decreased blood pressure?
    as i know that Progesteron Hormon during pregnancy will make the muscle relax & this should make Blood pressure to decrease not increase.

    Thanks for the awesome video, some one correct me if i’m mistaken Here:)

  • blood pressure doesn’t increase during pregnancy, or at least it shouldn’t. Just watch your other khan academy video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKRT-boQTr0&list=PL5dh10FC3b1W6tvjLPZ_XQXfmsZlFkYpw&index=10

  • we say that increase tv causes a decrease in co2 causing alkalosis which improves gas exchange, but alkalosis causes a left shift of the oxy dissociation curve, making it harder to release oxygen? im not sure i understand how this makes gas exchange easier

  • I got May 18th I’ll be 21 weeks! Haven’t seen my baby since 14 weeks. I can’t wait to see her. 15 more days ����.
    Congrats on healthy baby ����

  • Congrats! I have my 20 week scan in an hour I’m so scared! We are having a girl, found out at a 16 week scan but I’m still super nervous
