Hey there! Congratulations to you!! I've had the same issue with both my pregnancies, so I know how uncomfortable it is! I was surprised at how early it started! However, with my current pregnancy (I'm 9wks now, but found out at like 3-4wks- very early), my backache started almost immediately. Come to find out, I had a Urinary Track Infection (UTI) and my Dr had to put me on a round of antibiotics. It's a simple test that they can detect with a urine test, so you might want to go ahead & call your Dr bc if left untreated it can cause bigger issues. Other than that, you can only take Tylenol for pain (no Advil, Motrin or Ibuprofen). I'd def call your Dr's office and mention it bc it ocould be a UTI and those suck Congrats again & feel better!View Thread
Hey Ladies! Hope all is well with everyone! I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is feeling? How far along are you ladies? I'm 9wks today, and feeling pretty rotten on most days. This is my 2nd baby, and I started feeling bad much earlier on than with my son. I've been really sick, can't hardly keep anything down, and some days it's all day, and others it comes and goes. But I'm to the point now that I throw up at least once a day.. The extreme fatigue has gotten better, thank goodness. I'm hoping that since I started getting sick so early on, that hopefully it'll start tapering off earlier (with my son it didn't kick in until 9wks and didn't go away until about 4 months! It was awful!) I'm def ready to be out of the 1st trimester! View Thread
I honestly don't know what could be wrong, since you've gotten your period. You could always take another pregnancy test, just to rule it out (some women have what they think is 'normal' periods during pregnancy and never know they're expecting!). No matter what the outcome, you definitely need to call your doctor. Good luck!View Thread
I agree with SuperMommy1- you have got to tell your parents. I'm 26 and pregnant with my 2nd baby and I was still nervous to tell my parents that my hubby & I were expecting. (I know, it's stupid but I was! LOL) I understand that in your situation you're scared & nervous BUT you're going to need their support. Being pregnant isn't easy, especially when you feel like you're having to hide it or are afraid of your boyfriend. If he 'helped' you get pregnant then he needs to grow up and help you take care of the baby. Babies are the best thing God will ever give to you, so I'm praying that you can tell your parents about it and get the support you need. GOOD LUCK! It will be okay! *BIG HUGS*View Thread
Sounds like you either have a Urinary Track Infection ("UTI") or a kidney infection. I had UTIs with my son, and I've also had 2 UTI's with this pregnancy, and I'm only 9wks. When you're pregnant it's SO important that you stay well hydrated and drink tons of water. UTIs can be detected by a urine test, so you probably need to call your OB and tell them your symptoms, and go in for them to check and see. They will give you an antibiotic to clear it up, but make sure you drink lots of water- even if you hate it! I loved water when PG w/ my son but I can't stand it w/ this pregnancy but I'm having to make myself drink it or else I get stuck with a UTI. Hope you feel better!View Thread
Are they not giving you ultrasounds to see if there's anything there? I'd be making them give me one! Blood work can only tell so many things- they should be checking to see if they see anything besides the sac. At this point they should see SOMETHING. I hope everything works out for you.View Thread
Hi there. I'm sorry about what's happened to you. I've lost 2 babies, and I'm currently 8wks pregnant with my 4th pregnancy. (my son is 3 so this will be my 2nd living baby, God willing everything works out this time!) I don't have much insight into your issue, but I do have a question. If your Dr didn't see a baby at 8wks, did he/she not give you any information as to if you might've lost the baby? I had my first ultrasound with this baby at 6wks and we could see the baby as well as the sack, so the Dr should've been able to tell you something! Have you gotten the bloodwork results back yet? I've never had my pregnancy bloodwork monitored, even though I've lost 2 babies, but I'd think the Dr might be a little more helpful in your case. Good luck!!View Thread
You might want to call your Dr, just so they're aware. They might even have you come in for an ultrasound I'm on my 4th pregnancy, although I only have 1 living child. I'm now 8wks pregnant, and I've spotted off & on the entire pregnancy. Each time my Dr advised that as long as it's not red, gets worse, or is accompanied with cramping it's probably just the 'norma' early pregnancy spotting. After loosing 2 babies before, every time I see any spotting I start crying, but so far nothing's wrong. I hope all is well! Anytime you're concerned, call your Dr- that's what they're getting paid for View Thread
