Scared

i just found out via blood test from the doctor that i'm six weeks pregnant. i knew long before, having taken five tests and already showing symptoms such as cravings and tiredness. i'm really scared, though. for a lot of reasons. first they told me everything was okay and now they are telling me that ... and i forget the name of the enzyme or hormone ... is showing low levels, which means the baby isn't developing right.

pregnant!

[03.10.09]

I took at at home pregnancy test March 3rd (actually, 10 home pregnancy test...all showed up positive in less than a minute!). I had a blood test done March 5th to confirm my pregnancy. My first ultrasound/obgyn appointment is March 25th at 9:15. I have so many different emotions going through my head right now it's hard to even sit down and concentrate long enough to write this entry!

QUESTION

Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I'm expecting my 5th child in June and have been told the baby's stomach is measuring quite big and that I have to have another scan at 32 weeks but thats all I was told.

My husband and I are very worried because this has never happened in the previous pregnancies and no one we know seems to know what it could be its a long time until the next scan.

Dear Midwife,
Please please please help me, I am so worried and need reassurance

Following a miscarriage with my first baby in September last year I was delighted to find out 3 weeks ago my husband and I are expecting again. My doctor has been monitoring me closely by taking blood tests and I had a referral yesterday for a scan to the Early Pregnancy Unit.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hi I'm 33 weeks this Sunday and this is my first baby so exciting, but this week I have been having pain in my pelvis especially on the left hand side like hes pushing down and the occasional pain which feels like a knife stab pain which can make me stop for a little while but only lasts a few minutes then gone.

Please can you tell me what this is and if its all normal.

Thanks
