QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I have some kind of excess fluid that I'm concerned about. My doctor didn't say exactly what it might cause, they just said it will be monitored, no explanations. I think it might be extra water in the amniotic sac? Or something of that nature, I'm not sure but this is really bothering me and eating at me.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
The reason we found out that I was pregnant is because my breasts were hurting, prompting me to take a HPT. But still, 3 months later my breasts still hurt, my nipples and the armpit sides are very sore and my husband says that they feel full or firm and they taste like metal making sexual enjoyment less fun.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife, I need to find out what is going on with me. I have a history of a blighted ovum. I had a D&C on June 19th. I had not had a period since the surgery. I took a pregnancy test (actually 3 of them) and they were all positive. I had an ultrasound done on August 6th. The technician said that she saw a gestational sac and she also saw a yolk sac. She wasn't able to locate fetal pole. My doctor did a trace of my HCG levels after 48 hours. On August 9th I had a level of 18,600, on August 11th the level was 28,900. I got those results yesterday.
