I am currently 14 weeks pregnant with my first child. This past friday I woke up and was covered in a liquid. After going to the hospital I discovered that I had a tear and the amniotic fluid leaked out but there was still a little left. The doctors informed me that there isn't much they can do other than wait and see what happens but to remember the positives: my child is still alive and has a heartbeat of 164. I have had cramps and spotted bleeding quite a bit through this pregnancy and I'm still having them but the doctor said that if I was miscarrying I would be able to tell. Since this is my first pregnancy, I'm not sure if this is something that happens to a lot of people or is something that is rare and if there are more options than the 'wait game'. I know stressing over it isn't going to make anything better but I'm not sure what my odds are. If anyone has dealt with something similar or has any advice for me please let me know.View Thread
how long does it take for a pregnancy to show up in your blood? i recently got one today and my last period was very light and lasted for only three and a half days. i've been nauseas, fatigue and lightheaded for two weeks and i went for a checkup today and they took blood and a urine test. i just don't know how long it'll take to show up in your blood.View Thread
