Is a Gynecologist or Internal Medicine Specialist Best for Me?

Hi,

I am 4-5 weeks pregnant and my doctor is specialized in internal medicine. Once I told her that I took two pregnancy tests and that I missed my period she asked me to come for a blood tests and to start taking folic acid.

My doctor is very good doctor but since I am pregnant, I should switch to a gynecologist or should I continue with her?

Thank you.

Worried......

I found out I was pregnant back in January when I went to my 2nd doctors appointment when they did the ultrasound they didn't see anything in the gestational sac. So they sent me over to the hospital and they did another ultrasound they didn't see anything either. Well long story short I had a D&C in March. Well now it's September and I just found out I'm pregnant again.

Adderall during pregnancy

Hello! I am 15 weeks pregnant and am on Adderall for ADD (and it also helps with my depression and anxiety). There is very little information available about this medication and its use during pregnancy. Before I was pregnant I took 30 MG a day (20 XR in the morining and a 10 MG in the afternoon). Now I just take a 20 XR during the week and nothing or a 10 MG on the weekends. I am curious as to whether anyone else is on it or was on it during their pregnancy and how things turned out.

Miscarriage

I have to explain why I am so concerned about being pregnant. A couple days after my boyfriend and I broke up I wanted to start taking my medication for my skin, which causes birth defects. Just as precaution I took a pregnancy test... to my surprise it came out positive. (Monday 9th)

Later that night I had a negative test. He treated me like I made the whole thing up!

The next morning a negative test. (Tuesday 10th)

The nurse wanted me to come in for a blood pregnancy test. (Tuesday Afternoon)

C.U.P.

morning sickness has not been my freind. i have a thing, where i really dont like being around sick people. well, beyond grossing myself out on a regular bases; i can't seem to find the one thing that works and thats prego poppers. {the sad thing is the best tasting candy i have found is something thats helps with morning sickness.}
in my oppinion morning sickness should be illegal.
