Was it an internal ultrasound? They are able to see things much better with an internal u/s this early. I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks because they were afraid that my pregnancy was ectopic and the tech was barely able to see anything on the external u/s. The internal u/s showed that the baby was right where is was supposed to.
Is she having any bleeding/spotting, back pain, dizziness, or moderate/severe cramping? Those can be all signs of an ectopic pregnancy, but doesn't mean it is. I had spotting, mild cramping, and severe back pain but there is nothing wrong with the baby and my pregnancy. Try not to worry and take good care of her.View Thread
I had read somewhere that peanut butter was a no-no during pregnancy. I don't remember that from my previous two pregnancies. I didn't read a reason why, just that pregnant women should avoid it. Has anyone else heard this?View Thread
Really, the only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. When were you expecting your period? Was it an actual flow, or was it just spotting when you wiped?
On a side note, I have been on just about every type of birth control under the sun for my endometriosis. I was on Depo, but only for 3 months because I still got ovarian cysts, and a type of shot that put into pseudo-menopause for 6 months. By the grace of God I have 2 beautiful children and an 10w3d with number three. Try not to worry too much about taking the depo and how that will affect your fertility.View Thread
Any suggestions for healthy, quick, easy, and discrete snacks to keep on hand in my classroom? I am a teacher and need something that I can munch on quickly in between classes or while the kids are working quietly.View Thread
I am and I have lost 2 pounds. I have always shown early with all my kiddos. This time I had to break out few of my maternity pants at 6 weeks because a few pairs of jeans and several skirts were too snug. They say the more you have, the earlier you show.View Thread
We told our family and friends right away with all three pregnancies. The way we look at it is that if things go well and they know, we would want their support and prayers... if things don't go well and we lost the pregnancy then we would want their support and prayers. Either way it is up to you.View Thread
I am 6w2d and have been having back ache/pain on and off for the last week or so. Today has been the worse thus far. I am still feeling sick to my stomach and my chest feels sore and full, so I am not overly concerned. It is uncomfortable for sure.View Thread
Hello Ladies, I wanted to introduce myself as another mommy to be with #3. My husband and I have a 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter and are expecting #3 at the end of June. Due to some health issues for me we had to wait a little longer than we wanted to TTC #3, but once we were able to it didn't take too long.
I have had the typical early pregnancy symptoms - mild cramping, morning sickness (which actually isn't bad in the morning, but worse at night), exhaustion.
I look forward to progressing along with ya'll.View Thread
