pregnant or not?
Qi did a pregnancy test and i thought it was negative, but i looked later and it was positive.
So i did another a couple of days later and it was negative. Was i pregnant or did i have a miscarriage?
aIf you leave a pregnancy stick to dry out, it can evaporate and leave a mark on the stick where the line is – looking positive.
If a retest is negative, then it was never positive.
QMy daughter was born with blisters on her lip. They don’t bother her, they come and go, but nobody seems that worried about them.
Should i be concerned? Evelyn, Harwich
aNewborns can suffer from blisters which are actually caused by intense suckling, even from thumb-sucking in the womb.
They’re harmless and can help with latching on – so don’t worry about them, they should go in a few months.
QMy daughter has bad asthma and has been in hospital with infections several times.
She regularly uses inhalers, but hates having checkups.
is it important that i keep taking her along to them? Stephanie, St Asaph
aDefinitely. We know that people who don’t have regular checkups will need to be treated in hospital more often.
Your daughter needs to be reviewed, then regularly followed up and she’ll have fewer admissions.
