Im 19 yrs old and pregnant. i got very dehydrated two weeks ago, and when i went to the dr they did a quick vaginal ultrasound to make sure the baby was ok. the baby looked healthy and could see the heartbeat, they had to really poke around to get a clear pic. i got a couple bags of iv fluid and was good. exactly a week later i got very dehydrated again because my morning sickness last all day everyday and i can not hold anything down, but this time i was hospitalized for 3 says while being rehydrated. when i was in the hospital the nurse came in and ask how far along i was and i told her 8 weeks, and she said my blood showed to be over 9 weeks. the day i was released the dr told me that my hcg level was over 129000 and was high. as i have told a few people this they all said im having twins. my first ob visit isnt for a long time and i just need to know. since my ultrasound said im not as far along as my blood says i am and the dr said there is alot of room for baby growth, ive had extreme morning sickness, and my levels were so high that there is a chance i could be chaving twins even though the ultrasound they gave me at the dr showed only one?View Thread

Ok so she spends a lot of time talking about and defending natural birth and home births - but she also talks a lot about interventions and patient empowerment! She also gives ideas for those that do need to have c-sections and be induced on how you can avoid problems with it. Very interesting and non-judgmental blog. She sites all her references as well and answers questions from readers.View Thread
