Hi All, I am 9 weeks pregnant, and this is my first pregnancy, I am 29, well will be 30 this August. Can anyone suggest if I should go for the screening test for down syndrome or not? I know that its a personal decision, but I am not sure what are the chances or ratio at my age. My doctor told me before they didn't offer this to women under 35, but now they do, so it's up to me. I am confused if I should or should not. Your advise, suggestions can help me decide better.
Hi There, Just wait till your period and take a test, I know it's very hard to wait and it feels really long, but that will be the most accurate. You know I am too 29 years old and have history of ovarian cyst and had laparoscopy in 2008 for cyst removal and endometriosis, my cysts reoccurred in mid 2011, but it wasn't that big, it took me 7 cycles to get pregnant, and I am finally 6 weeks pregnant, so it will happen to you too, just keep patience and don't stress over anything, it finally happened when I stopped looking for signs, and waited to test till my expected period date, I didn't get spotting or implantation bleeding, and as far as I have read Implantation bleeding can happen only for 1-2 days, but its' diff for everyone I guess. Good luck honey, hang in there.View Thread
Oh don't worry honey, I read it everywhere that it's normal, and yesterday only I too felt the same way, me and my husband were debating about something and I took things differently and I just busted into tears,without any reason, he kept asking what's wrong and what made me cry and I said I don't know..but he did realize that we go through some emotional wreck like this, so don't worry about it. I am sure your husband understands it even if he doesn't say it..I just noticed that you posted this a week ago, so I hope you are feeling better now Take care,View Thread
Hi, I am 6 weeks pregnant and want to know if anyone has had any luck with skin care for stopping stretchmarks? I have heard that some are not safe to use and can harm my baby but I am so confused by which ones are ok and actually work to prevent stretchmarks, as I heard the early the better.
I heard good stuff about Bio oil and Wheat Germ oil, but then people say too much of Vitamin E is not good, is that true? Plz help and advise
Did you have regular period after the red spotting? If you did then you might not be pregnant, as you don't get regular period if you are pregnant, but if you didn't start your period on your expected start date then take a home test honey to confirm.
haha..wow..our doctor's appointment is in same week too And I KNOW..days are going soo slow now..I will be 5 weeks tomorrow..and I just found a week ago that I am pregnant, still time is going REALLY SLOW..I haven't got any morning sickness as of now, touch-wood. Since I am only 5 weeks, we haven't told anyone yet, since it's 1st pregnancy , we want to wait till 10-12 week to tell friends, but will tell family after the doctor appointment. So it's really hard when you can't share stuff with your friends/family, can't wail to tell them. Oh thanks a lot for your email. I will keep in touch, my real name is Avni and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
