We were lucky enough to get pregnant on our first try, like the first time around. However, we were not able to enjoy our good news for long. I suspected I was pregnant right away, but the home pregnancy test came back negative.
I am 16-weeks pregnant and have been having periodic pain in the middle of my lower abdomen. I usually feel it when I lean forward real far (like when I am standing up from sitting or getting out of a car). It is different than the round ligament pain I get on my sides. I have been having it on and off for two weeks. I don't have any other symptoms of a bladder infection such as frequent urination.
When I wiped, my worse nightmare came to reality. There it was crimson, bright red, but only a little bit so I tried to remain calm.
Women who suffered moderate to severe asthma symptoms during their pregnancy were far more likely to develop preeclampsia than women who had no symptoms.
Even if you're as healthy as a horse and your uterus is chugging along just fine, your age might still mean the difference between a C-section and a vaginal delivery.
My doctor told me I had a chemical pregnancy. I wasn't sure what that meant and can it happen again? Is there a way to prevent it?
I had a very hard and long labor with my second child. My midwife tried to break my bag of waters and found out that it had already broke.
The only thing is...I didn't notice it. I know my bag of waters did not break or I would have noticed. Apart from that I was full term, but my daughter only weighed in at 5# 3oz. What do you make of this? Could I have problems in a future pregnancy with low amniotic fluid?
Dear Ms Ultrasound,
