I had my HCG tested 3x's the first test the levels went up by about 125% the 2nd they went up by 400%. Is this normal in early pregnancy? I am a little more paranoid then last time due to a previous miscarriage.View Thread
Hi! My name is Kristi and I am 32. This is my third pregnancy. We have a 22 month old daughter. My last pregnancy ended in mc as well. I am due Nov 14th. We were able to see a heartbeat on our ultra sound as well!! 172 bpm! Chinese calander says a girl...my husband is not so secretly hoping it is a boy! I just hope it is healthy which ever it is I am glad there are a few people on to chat with Congrats to you too!!!View Thread
when i was pregant with my son years go. i remember i was suppose to be close to 9 weeks when i first went but aarons measured 7wks and 4 or 5 days. my dr told me the reason for this is because no one can really tell when a women ovulates thats why they usually give a weeks time to "fertile" days. usually after 6 weeks is when you can see a heartbeat. around 5 weeks you see a sack and sometimes a "tail" which is probably why your called wants to see you back in 2 weeks. there checking to make sure there a heart beat.View Thread
I tested 13 DPO and got a positive pregnancy test (a couple actually ! My estimated due date is Dec. 15th. This will be my 2nd child, I have a 7 year old daughter that has been begging for a sibling. I'm dying to tell her but will wait until it's safer. When do you all plan to make your first doctor's appt.?
Looking forward to going through this journey again. In my first pregnancy the WebMd boards were a HUGE support and I've made several lifelong friends (including my very best friend). I hope to make some more amazing friends this time around. Congrats to you all!!!
The same thing happened to me. I went in thinking I was 7 weeks pregnant and the u/s said I was 5 weeks. I am due in 6 weeks (May 10) and everything has been fine. The doctor told me the same thing so it is nothing to be to concerned about. Everything since has been right on with my May 10th due date. If you are still concerned maybe talk to another doctor.
I have been pregnant 3 times before and this has never happened to me before. I just need some clarity if I'm pregnant or not. The doctor can't even explain what is going on. Has this happen to anyone before? And what was the outcome?View Thread
I did end up having a m/c which ended up with getting a D&C I haven't gotten pregnant yet again but hoping to start my fertility treatment t soon so I can!!! Thank you for your response sorry I just now saw this!View Thread
So I am very nervous right now and part of me thinks its not necessary but I figured I would see what others had to say. Here is my story...
About 4 years ago I was pregnant and found out the baby did not have a heartbeat when I went in for my 12 week ultrasound to hear the heartbeat. They did some testing after and said I wasn't producing enough HCG. I am now 5 weeks pregnant in my current pregnancy and was asking my mom some questions because of her history. My mom had 7 pregnancies and 5 ending in miscarriage, in order to carry both my sister and I she had to take HCG shots so she could carry. Is not producing enough HCG something that runs in genetics is it just a freak accident that I had the same problem?
Also is it something I need to be worrying about now? My first appointment is not until a week from today and I don't want it to be to late when I finally get my blood work done. It was really hard going through my first miscarriage and I would like to prevent this pregnancy in going in the same direction.
In case it matters my previous pregnancy was when I was 19/20 and was in a relationship that was both emotionally draining and very stressful (not a good relationship) and I was around a group of people that did drugs and were up to the wee hours of the morning partying. I am now 25 and out of that environment and in a healthy relationship and my family is being very supportive.
Spotting may or may not be an early symptom of pregnancy. Light spotting is simply indicative of an impending menstrual cycle ready to make it's appearance, or due to hormonal changes during a woman's cycle. I think you should seek out your doctor or midwife.View Thread
I was suppose to start my period the 16th of this month and I was 8 days late! I started spotting for 4 too 5 days then the next 4 days I have been bleeding a little heavier. My breast have been a lot more Sensitive, been using the bathroom more frequently, eating more, and I have been wanting everything spicy or sour. I have been extremely lazy an tierd, and been itching on my breast an stomach. One of my friends she is pregnant an said that it sounds a lot like what her body was doing when she was pregnant but backwards. I took a test an it was negative but I asked her an she said it could be to early an she said take a test after I am bleeding.View Thread
