HELP! I have IBS and I am 8 weeks pregnant. I have flairs every so often where I am simply miserable. I normally have a Rx I take for this but I cannot take it while pregnant. The doc is telling me Tums are really all I can take. I know the doctor knows best but I am miserable. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I am 30 years old, 7 1/2 weeks pregnant, in good shape with no previous health issues. My first pregnancy went well with no complications. I had issues breathing in the last trimester just because at that point there is pressure everywhere but with this one I'm a bit nervous. I am told this is normal but I have been getting short of breath very easily. At some points it's even when I'm sitting down. It is usually when I go upstairs in my house or when I take the stairs at work. (I hate elevators )
Any thoughts? I'm not even scheduled to go into the doctor until March 15th.
Hi everyone, I believe I am approx 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with my third pregnancy (I had a miscarriage with my second about this time). When I was pregnant with my daughter, who will be 4 next month, I had some cramping and discomfort during the first trimester but otherwise had no complications.
WIth this pregnancy I am so tired and I am not having cramping but I having this unusual pressure (I can't think of a good way to explain it) and when I have this pressure I almost feel like I can't breathe. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was having the breathing issues but that was before she was born when the baby is pushing on your diaphragm. Now it's just weird..
Anyone else experience this this early?
My doctor doesn't even want to see me to check on everything until I am 11 weeks, unless I have complications prior to that date.View Thread
It's been a few years since I was on this board but it really helped me before. My daughter will be 4 next month. I always said I wanted two kids, well that time has come. I took two tests a week ago and both were without a doubt POSITIVE. I am completely freaked out. I had a great pregnancy with my daughter, no complications but had a miscarriage in 2010. This pregnancy feels like it did with my daughter so I hope everything is going to be okay..
I am completely freaked out because I just started a new job in December after being with the same company for 8 years. I know this is awful to think but I don't want people to think differently of me at the new job or treat me differently. I left my previous employer for more opportunity and I'm afraid this will affect my chances here. What an awful thing to think, I know.
I am a firm believer in everything happens when it happens for a reason. I don't have much of a support system besides my husband and daughter so I didn't know where to turn. He teases me and says I'm just being hormonal but this is really hard.
I hate being pregnant because I am so self conscious (which also sounds ridiculous). Not feeling well and being tired all of the time isn't helping.
Am I being ridiculous.. I think it's just the lack of support.. I don't know.. Thanks everyone.View Thread
