Thank you, We had our first u/s yesterday at what I thought was 6w2d and the little one was only measuring at 5w5d and we couldn't pick up the heartbeat. However, they told us not to worry because they only hear them after the baby is measuring over 6 weeks. Hopefully on my OB appointment on the 26th we will be able to hear the heartbeat and everything will be okay.View Thread
With the nausea try eating something before getting out of bed, I've found that if I have saltines first thing in the morning (before I even use the bathroom) and keep them on hand it helps me to want food later on and keep it down. As far as support I have been looking for someone who is about the same lenght as I am because, although I have family and friends who have been there, I feel as though I am alone on what's happening right now.View Thread
I am currently 5w5d with my first pregnancy. I am twenty years old and although I have friends and a ton of family that has been there I would really like someone who is going through the same things I am right now. Yesterday morning I woke up with pain from my diaphragm to my belly button. I called the doctor's office and my PCP was able to get me in to be seen. She said that it was normal and that as my uterus grows that my organs have to shift upwards to make room for my uterus. Then she told me that 50% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Since then I have been looking up the odds of having a miscarriage and from everything I have read its actually only 10-25% chance after the first 5 weeks and that it goes down after every week. I have an ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday but I'm wondering if what I've read is true or if my PCP was accurate. I'm scared and could really just use some support.View Thread
Honestly the only way to be absolutly sure is to take a home test. They are 99% accurate withing five days of your period. Since today is the 4th you would get an accurate result, but the best results are with your first urination of the morning. Just breathe and try to relax. Hope this helps.View Thread
Congratulations! I just found out yesterday that me and my boyfriend are expecting our first, I am due around 8/4/13, but i'm honestly terrified. We had been trying since May and I had given up last month and then was late. I just need some support from someone who has been through this. I am also looking for tips that anyone might have on looking for an ObView Thread
