This article says that waiting at least a week after a missed period may give you the most accurate result as will taking the test first thing in the morning, when your urine is more concentrated. If you still have not gotten your period, I would suggest taking another test. Please let us know how you are doing!View Thread
Here is an article that describes common pregnancy pains and what you can do about them. It says that "sharp, shooting pains on either side of your stomach may result from the stretching tissue supporting your growing uterus." It's also possible that you are experiencing Braxton-Hicks contractions, where the uterine muscles contract (tighten) starting as early as the second trimester of pregnancy on.
It would still be a good idea to visit your doctor just to make sure that what you are experiencing is normal and to ease your mind. Please let us know how you are doing! View Thread
Itching, rash, and hives are listed as side effects of Zofran (here is the full list that we have ), but I'm not sure if these directly match what you are experiencing. If you are still experiencing these symptoms, I would speak with your doctor to see if they are related and what can be done to stop them.View Thread
Hi I'm a 39 yr old VP for an engineering firm who's been with my boyfriend (51 yrs old) for 6 1/2 yrs. he currently has 3 children ( 2 adult daughters (one has a 2 yr old), and a 10 yr old son who is always with us on the wknd mostly at my house as he lives being at my house.. Our relationship has been great his entire family adores me as I do them. We enjoyed our 6 yrs with a lot of traveling and enjoying each other.
15 yrs ago I gave birth to my son who unfortunately only lived for 30 days. So I currently have no children.
Well we just found out I'm 7 wks pregnant and it was a shock as I was on BC.. Now that this reality has arised he says he does not want to father a child for the next 20 yrs and is ready to walk away from me and the relationship. I'm at a loss as I cannot understand how he has just become so cold. He stated he will take care of the baby financially however he will not be involved..
His family and friends are telling me he is just reacting on his emotions of fear and is clearly not thinking clearly.. I am hurt and also disgusted as we are not children and the way he's handling this is unacceptable to me.. I will be moving forward with this pregnancy as termination is not an option.
I' looking to hear what advice and or comforting words can be shared for me at this point..
Thank you for listening and respondingView Thread
Question - I have had 4 positive pregnancy test in the last week, still having all the symptoms of being pregnant -sore breasts, food issues, back pain, but started bleeding this morning. I took another test and it came up negative. I am not having any cramping etc and. What could this be?View Thread
Hi there, do not worry with the pinkish discharge because it is normal during early pregnancy. Better take some more rest because sometimes (based on others experiences) it is because of being tired and stress. So just relax with your pregnancy and I cannot tell you if it is because you have retroverted uterus, better ask another doctor for second opinion. View Thread
I am on my 10th pregnancy! 3 miscarriages I have given birth 6 times. A 22 weeker (deceased) 25 weeker PrePROM at 22 weeks emergency csection at 25 weeks 38 weeker cerclage placed csection at 38 weeks 24 weeker stillborn due to infected cerclage 25 weeker PrePROM at 15 weeks (deceased) 36 weeker emergency csection due to nonreassuring heart rate cerclage and progesterone injections.
Now I am pregnant again and my doctors seems to think that I am going to 39 weeks. I don't think that will happen with 4 previous c section a clotting disorder and a incompetent cervix. I have a cerclage in place and I am getting the progesterone injections. Being realistic how far should I expect to get in this pregnancyView Thread
I'm 42 on my fourth pregnancy, three to term. I had all my top teeth removed, acquiring 18 novacaine shots. (Didn't know I was pregnant then. ) also had vicoden daily for weeks, recovering from the pain. I also work daily for hours with harsh cleaning products. Could this be why Im bleeding from a subcloronic hemmorage and on bed rest from a 'threatened abortion'. I keep getting low bp and body temp along with chills, no clue as to whyView Thread
Thank you. I havent had any blood work done yet just the two urine tests that were done at the hospital in the afternoon that came up neg. My husband and i are trying and I was so happy to see 2 positives.. and then again this morning I tested and it was a neg. it will happen in time ,,,, its frustrating.View Thread
It's too soon to take a test and to be feeling symptoms if you are pregnant. It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg (if there is one) to implant and another several days before there is enough of the pregnancy hormone to have symptoms or get a positive on a pregnancy test.View Thread
I have been trying for 5 months with my husband and we finally got pregnant! I'm 4 weeks as of Tuesday and have a doctors appointment today to confirm and get everything situated. We are so so happy! I am not sick but am tired, VERY constipated, and overall just happy to be growing a life!! Due date is March 10th. Any advice? My back started hurting a little yesterday at work but I did have to be on my feet a lot yesterday. Not so much today. Can't wait for all of the milestones to come. First U/S, finding out the sex, and delivering! What a road ahead!!View Thread
During the fifteenth week of pregnancy and throughout the second trimester, most women tend to relax a bit more. Most of the worst pregnancy symptoms, like nausea, morning sickness, and fatigue, are decreasing more and more as the days go by. The pain that comes at the end of the pregnancy is far off, so you can finally sit back and enjoy the fact that you are pregnant. The fifteenth week of pregnancy does not herald significant changes within your body. Many women have gained up to five pounds by this week, although weight gain varies from mom to mom. It is quite natural if you have gained a little more or a little less than that. The toughest situation moms-to-be face during this week is that the ligaments that support the uterus are continuing to grow, causing sharp pain in the abdomen.View Thread
When pregnant, you are more prone to back strain because pregnancy hormones soften your ligaments and joints. You will want to make sure that you are lifting in proper form to lessen chances of strain on your back. However, you should speak with your doctor to make sure that you are not putting yourself or your baby at risk by continuing to work, and he/she may also be able to give you advice on when you should look for a job where you won't be on your feet all the time. Your health is very important so if you are feeling exhausted and your work is taking a toll on your body, it may be time to consider looking for another job soon. Please let us know how you are doing!
Prenatals are fine. As a matter of fact, my doctor recommended I take them before I was even trying to get pregnant to "keep my eggs healthy" as he put it. It's also good to start them even before you start trying so that when you do get pregnant, you will already be taking the right vitamins.View Thread
