Pregnancy Complications

Pregnancy and Stress

I have an extreme amount of stress in my job. Not just because I am military but because of the different situations I am involved in at work. I find that I am able to de-stress after I get home and away from the office but meanwhile I spend 9 hours a day being stressed and constantly upset. I know that stress can affect the baby but how much can it affect my pregnancy?

Is This a Blighted Ovum?

QUESTION

Dear Jane,

I am currently 7 weeks, 3 days pregnant. My HCG levels have been doubling every 40 hours. The levels were 172, 1494, 10,301.

I underwent IUI and became pregnant during my first cycle.

At my 5 week and 7 week ultrasounds, there was only a gestational sac visible, measuring 5 mm and 6.6 mm, respectively. My doctor said does not look good and will probably miscarry. I should also mention I have a tilted uterus. I am not really having any cramping or bleeding.

So my questions are:

Pregnant at 16

I never thought I'd find myself pregnant at 16. When I found out, I kind of already knew, so I wasn't as shocked when 3 pregnancy tests showed that I am. All I could think was that I had to get an abortion because of the medication I'm on, I didn't really want to, but the father kept telling me it wouldn't be fair to keep it since it would have severe physical and mental defects. Little did I know that it was only because he didn't want it.
I told my 13 year old sister, and she was able to keep it a secret until she got angry with our mother.

confused and scared!!
