Q:

What are normal baby movements during pregnancy?

A:

Babies first start moving in the second trimester.  If it's your first baby you can expect to feel the baby moving somewhere around about 18 to 20 weeks. With the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh baby, it's going to be somewhere around 16 to 18 weeks.The obvious movements come up later on in the pregnancy when you can actually see a foot moving or feel something much bigger.

Q:

How are the birth control pills today different from previous pills?

A:

Birth control pills have evolved over time, and now we have versions with much lower doses of hormone in them, like estrogen. These lower hormone doses actually decrease the risk of complications that are associated with taking birth control pills. Of course, when you are discussing your birth control options with your doctor, he/she will review your health history to determine whether the birth control pill is a safe choice for you.

Q:

What is the treatment for a cat bite?

A:

If you seek treatment for a cat bite, the doctor will carefully examine the skin around the bite and likely clean the wound. You may be given a prescription for antibiotics to prevent infection, and a tetanus shot may be given as well if you have not received one in the past 10 years. You will also be told what to watch for at home in terms of signs of an infection developing.
