Okay, I am pregnant with my 3rd child and I am experiencing something different and I don't see my doctor for another 6 days. I have had two beautiful daughters and have had wonderful sex life with my husband during that time. The only problem I had was that intercourse would tend to give me contractions for a couple of days afterwards during my 3rd trimester, so I had to be cautious.
This time I am going to be 12 weeks in a couple of days and I feel terrible, but I had to tell my husband that sex has become uncomfortable for me. It has since I was around 3 weeks along. About a week before I found out I was pregnant sex has felt weird and different. It's very unlike my other pregnancies. I don't want to get into too much detail, but sex is starting to burn and hurt. It's not my husband's fault he is trying to be as gentle as possible. It doesn't seem to matter. I got tested for infections and other things already and they came back saying I was healthy.
I have never experienced this in any of my pregnancies before. I don't know what to do. I really feel bad, because my husband feels so terrible for me.
I am in the same situation. I have two girls, so we are recycling our boy name. I have absolutely no idea what to name mine if it happens to be another girl. I think after two girls in a row I've run out of ideas. I'm 9 weeks and 4 days and I think I'll be due early to mid Feb. I don't have a appointment until August 4th when I am around 12 weeks. I'll get to hear the heartbeat then. Valerie reminds me of a Amy Winehouse song. That may ruin it for you, sorry. It just happens to be one of my favorite songs. Good Luck next week with your appointment!View Thread
It really depends on how far along you are, but here is a chart for you. I stole from somewhere a long time ago and had it on my computer. I hope this helps.
