First Trimester

Well... now what

Well... now what? What do i do know? I found out that I was pregnant March 1st. At that time I was living with my boyfriend, the father, and we were as happy as can be. even though we were not married we were still wanting to add a new member to our family. It is now a little over a month later, and I am living in a different state with my mother fighting every day with him, my emotions, and the pains of the first trimester.

Yeast Infection Medications During First Trimester

Dear Midwife,
I am currently 8 months pregnant. I was looking on the internet about treatment of yeast infections and have seen many articles that say medication should not be used in the first trimester. I am really worried.

When I was 6 weeks pregnant I my doctor prescribed a cream for me to use internally. Could this have hurt my baby? Would problems have shown up on my 5 month ultrasound? Was this safe since it was prescription? Thank you for your help.

No Gestational Sac at 6.5 Weeks

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My wife is now just at 7.5 weeks pregnant. She had a trans vaginal ultrasound last Friday which would have been right at 6.5 weeks. We are absolutely sure that she got pregnant on Feb. 24 or 25th as I traveled a lot and we didn't see each other much other than then. I'm worried because when we went for her scan they didn't see anything at all.

Welcome symptoms

Well hello there pregnancy symptoms. I have a little timid with this whole pregnancy thing since I wasn't feeling queasy and I didn't have that 'tell-tale' sign ofsore boobs. I spoke too soon. Today I am 6 weeks and that appears to be the magic number. My morning decaf mocha, disgusting and revolting. My morning yogurt snack, repulsive. I accidentally hit myself in the boob and let out a yelp that startled the dog. Last night all I wanted was meatloaf; today just the thought of it makes me crave a saltine.
