Technically it did help get the baby out quicker.. just not in the healthiest way! Glad everything worked out though(:

And i agree, i see the same questions on here. And i wanna tell them to scroll down a couple questions and im sure they will find the same one.. i know being a ftm is scary, but i see the same questions, allll the time.

Thank you for this list! And everyone commenting other common questions.
(I have a feeling it wont be long before we see one of these though) but at least if some people see this they will have their answer(:

Q) when to test for pregnancy?
A) I would suggest about a week after you missed your period or if you are concerned go to ER to get testes since their tests are more accurate than a home pregnancy test.

Q) when to wash baby clothes?
A) everyone goes through a nesting stage, so whenever you want to. If you have the energy to rearrange nursery or wash clothes. Go for it!

With the spotting one i would like to suggest that you have all spotting assessed buy a dr. I had spotting and was ignored buy a doctor and told it is normal turned out my pregnancy was ectopic and nearly killed me if you have spotting see a doctor asap and ask for a viability scan or to have your hcg levels closely monitored don't let them not even examine you and just say " spotting is normal its probably just implantation spotting "
