Myth Conception: Why Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Has it All Wrong

7 Natural Products to Banish Pregnancy Acne

If somehow we had a precise measure of pregnancy onset, wouldnt pregnancy length be much less variable? No one had been able to look at the variability of pregnancy length using a precise measure of conception. Our study, which used daily hormone measures to detect ovulation , provides that precise measure because the egg only survives a matter of hours after ovulation if it is not fertilized. What we found, to our surprise, was that the true length of pregnancy is still quite variable, ranging over five weeks in a group of healthy women (from 35.3 to 40.6 weeks from ovulation). While our study was small (125 women with no fertility problems who conceived naturally), the implications are intriguing. If healthy pregnancies can vary in length by five weeks, then an ideal gestation for one woman might be 38 weeks, while for another woman it might be 42 weeks. How can we distinguish the woman who would ideally deliver at 40 weeks, but has gone to 42, from the woman who would ideally deliver at 42 weeks?

As someone who’s suffered from acne problems well into adulthood, even without being pregnant, I’m always on the lookout for new products to help tame breakouts. Though some doctors tell pregnant women that products containing synthetic salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are not safe during pregnancy, as mine did 4 years ago when I was pregnant with my oldest, others find it safe. Personally, I’d rather go with my trusted doctor and search for more natural products to use.

Preterm Birth: Are You at Risk?

I decided to continue drinking my three to four cups a day.” I did this research when I co-wrote the pregnancy and baby guide From The Hips with Rebecca Odes nearly ten years ago. We reported similar conclusions. For example, we found that research supports drinking coffee while pregnant so long as you don’t exceed–get this–5 cups a day. Lordy. Rebecca and I nevertheless made different choices about what to swallow, chew, breathe, and rub on our bodies. But both of us felt confident that our choices were informed AND intuitive.
