I know for me, my symptoms have come and gone. There's been weeks where I was sicker than a dog and weeks where I wouldn't have known I was pg! It's very normal. I'm 12 weeks now and don't feel pregnant. (Other than starting to show and being dead tired.)View Thread
So sorry to hear! I went through a m/c b/c of a blighted ovum Oct of last year. I was 7w 4d and when I went in for my u's there was no embryo in the sac. Easily one of the worst things I have ever gone through. I will be thinking of you. It will take some time to heal so let yourself grieve the loss.View Thread
With DS I was all about the junk food! Esp icecream and fries from McDonald's. With this pregnancy it has been the opposite! I am 12 weeks and just now getting to the point where I can eat anything fried. Before I couldn't stand any kind of junk food. All I craved was veggies and fruit. I lost 3 lbs b/c I was basically on a vegan diet! Still can't stand chicken of any kind though which is sad bc I usually love chicken. Just do everything in moderation and try to make some healthy substitutes for the junk food you crave.
Oh and jb, I read that chicken is one of the top food aversions for pregnant women. You are not alone! the thought of eating chicken makes me gag. And the smell Yuck!View Thread
I agree with joelle. It prob is too early to pick up the HB at 6 weeks, even with an u/s. The baby is just too tiny at that point.
I had some spotting with my son in the first trimester but not any with this one.
As long as it's not red and you don't have sharp pains, you should be ok. Esp if your hormone levels are fine and your HcG continues to rise. If the blood is brown it could be old blood from implantation making its way out. If things get worse though, def let your OB know.
Hopefully that serves as some consultation to you then. I can't believe they got such a good picture on your u/s. (Was looking at your profile pic.) Mine looks like a little blob at 7 weeks! lol!View Thread
I have been getting massage therapy for about a year for headaches and I get massages to help with pregnancy aches and stress. As long as you aren't high risk it's fine and even good for you. make sure that you are NOT flat on your belly. My OB advised against that. The therapist should be specifically trained in prenatal massage. (Not all of them are so ask.) They should either have you laying sideline (which is on your side with pillows propped against you for support) or have a special prenatal table that has a cut out for your belly. And no massaging near your pelvic area (which could affect blood flow to the baby)View Thread
