i cant believe it... i have a baby growing inside me. im 22 years old, and im very excited. my real mother told me a lot of things about it when i was young, but there is never a way to describe the joy you feel knowing you are forming a child inside you. ive never smiled so much in my life. i can get past the wierd cravings and being tired a lot. i can even get past feeling sick, because its all worth it. :}

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Maybe you can give me a straight answer on this. I am a little over 8 weeks pregnant. I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and we saw the heart beat and it seems as if everything was fine.

This morning I woke up and I have a brown discharge. It's not a lot but it's there, enough to where I have to wear a mini pad. I called my doctor and she told me that this is not uncommon and just to wait it out.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hi, I wanted to ask about my condition. I am 20 and married and I got pregnant the first month we were together but I miscarried and subsequent pregnancies did not last two months.

Now I went to see our Ob/Gyn and she encouraged me to do all tests needed to ascertain and pregnancy test again which I did and it was positive so she put me on weekly Primolut and bedrest. I am doing this as she has requested but just three days ago I started a mid menstrual bleeding.

Dealing with Pregnancy Nausea

QUESTION:

Dear Livitician,
I have just found out I am about 5 weeks pregnant. I'm suffering from nausea (no big surprise there) and food aversion. Nothing seems desirable to me. I'm concerned about eating enough and giving my baby the right nutrition.

I work full time in retail so it's hard to find the time and energy to cook or to eat full meals. Add to that I can't seem to find room in my stomach for half a can of soup and I'm at a bit of a loss.

Beginning of Pregnancy

I'm not really sure what this blog about. Is it a diary type of thing? I am not sure how private this information is, so I will keep it simple until I know a little more. I will be at 9 weeks tomorrow. The beginning of pregnancy is interesting. At first I was really scared to miscarry, and since then I have been battling with GI discomfort. I only get nauseous if I let my stomach get empty, so I pretty much eat all day long. My tummy is already sticking out. Is it possible to show at 9 weeks? I think a lot of it is bloating.
