Pregnancy Health Problems

Dear Midwife,
Hi. I'm 28 and pregnant with my first child, which is due April 21st. About a month ago I had a virus with diarrhea, vomiting and fever. the doctor gave me antibiotics which lead to a yeast infection so I took Monistat 7 day. Before this virus I had a typical pregnancy with no problems, not even morning sickness. I am monitored carefully by my endocrinologist because I have had Hashimotos Thyroiditis since the age of 12. The doctor had had to increase my dosage since the beginning of my pregnancy.

I have Post-Traumatic Stress

Hi Dr. Laura,
I have Post-traumatic Stress. I know I have it.

I am still a child I consider myself to be because I'm still in the teenage years, I'm 19. So I was wondering could you tell me how to deal with this issue.

I got this from being in a car accident on May 2007 and suffered from eye trauma and I'm probably going to be on eye drops for the rest of my life.

Finally Feeling Better

I am finally starting to feel better after months of nausea and vomiting. This pregnany has made my first pregnancy look like a cakewalk in comparison. The worst symptom has been a horrible taste in my mouth which seems to make even peanut butter and jelly taste bad but at last it is subsiding. I have turned to zantac to help with my heartburn and gave up on my prenatals turning to flintstones instead.

Ultrasound and Conception Dates

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I have had two scans so far both match up with my lmp. I had one at 7 weeks and one at 13 weeks.
so I calculated that I conceived around 22nd September.

Here are my dates:
lmp: 9/10th Sept
28 Oct: 7 week scan
Conception around 22nd September?

However my period was very light and spotting, is it possible this was actually implantation and the ultrasound is out by few weeks?
