  • Tummy measuring bigger than normal

    I went in for my 24 week check up last week and when my ob/gyn measured my tummy it measured in at 29 weeks. This is my second pregancy and my first pregnancy was naturally conceived faternal twins. I have had five ultrasounds and they all show one baby at normal size, but it has been feeling like twins since my fourth month. However, I've never been pregnant with just one so I don't know if what I am feeling is normal for one.

    Ok, so I am 7 weeks 3 days pregnant (according to the last period I had). I am worrying myself a ton though because I am scared of miscarrying. I had irregular periods before I got pregnant, but the tests say I am pregnant! My husband and I are very excited, though I am very nervous just because I don't feel pregnant. I am not sick, though I have been nausious, but not regularly. I need some comfort!!!
