Anyone had this recurrent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the 1st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and how was it treated? There seems to be so much conflicting information.......Thank you!
the reason they say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> is because the majority of failing pregnancies will happen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> this time. ANd a small percentage happen after that. I don't think people actually will ever tell you that you are completely out of the woods...but as your pregnancy advances the chance for baby's survivial increases.
So, my question is, has anyone experienced this early in pregnancy, and if so, did you have any complications <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the rest of your pregnancy or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> labor? My doctor wasn't too concerned about it, but I have been thinking about it more, and I am getting a little nervous. This is my 3rd baby, and I delivered both of my others vaginally. I am petrified of having a c-section and I am afraid that labor may cause the placenta to detach more, which could lead to a c-section.
Ive been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> for the last 11 hours. Started off 8 mins apart for two hours, then 6 mins apart, and now they are about ten mins apart with the occasional one chucked in after like three mins. I havent slept. Ive called the hospital twice and they said i need to try and sleep. It might be why im not progressing! I've been trying to sleep since yesterday afternoon. Its now 8am! I spent most of the night in the bath and shower.
This is the first time I've ever made it this far in a pregnancy so I wanted to know if others go through this or if in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> you don't feel hardly anything and then the second starts feeling like the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span>? My nipples have also gotten rather tender all of a sudden too...
28 weeks today offically in third <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. Now that its almost over I want to do it all over again!! Sykee. Jk haha im over it so ready to have my little boy! Second trimester symptoms from hell: weight gain, flem, and food cravings!! Still waiting on my "big pregnant boobs" i got ripped off! How are all the may mommies doingg??
I am not technically into my third trimester until next week, but the past week has been torture with nausea. I feel just like I did in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>! I've read that sometimes it's possible for the nausea to return in the third trimester but has anyone else experienced it? Does it last until delivery, or does it get any better before that?
thanks dear atleast I know that I am not alone...it is so strange because I wasnt sick at all in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and for this to be happening just alarmed me. Hormones that is the reason for everything...no contraction just this sudden sickness kylesmom-thanks for your response...I think I will just give the nurse a call tomorrow to just to see...I appreciate it. This is driving me crazy though...
And remember, no matter what, your baby will come when he is good and ready.
What happens is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> stages of dilation, it's the Braxton Hicks contractions causing you to dilate. Must women don't feel them, and so don't realize they are dilating. It's your body preparing for labor contractions that will just push out the baby!
I have few maternity pants that I bought <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> pregnancy and I am using them. I hope everyone else is doing fine. everyone staying in the cold zone stay warm... its freezing today.
I have no energy anymore it's like back in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. I have aches and pains that drive me crazy every night. I can get around all day, but by the time I waddle to bed my back, feet, legs, and hips hurt. I have heartburn that's epic. If I drink a glass of water and lay down the water rolls right back up my throat. At this point gravity is the only thing that keeps food in my stomach. The burning is horrible.
i started dialating (wasn't sure if i was having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> being my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span>). was fine one day and two days later i had dialated which made them think incompetent cervix. but you said you didn't have that. but come to find out i have a blood clotting disorder. there were abnormal clots in my uterus and a few got caught behind the placenta to put me into labor. have you been tested for those? a thrombolphilia work up is what you'd ask for if you haven't been tested.
Feeling tired like in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. I can't strech out in bed anymore without getting sharp pains in my tummy. I get bad heartburn at night. Baby kicks a lot at night which makes it hard to sleep lol.
This procedure is used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> for the same purposes as an amniocentesis. (Women usually have one or the other, but not both, if such testing is deemed necessary.) It involves taking a sample of the tissue that attaches the amniotic sac (the sac around the fetus) to the wall of the uterus. Like amniocentesis, CVS is typically done only when there are certain risk factors; its primary advantage is that results are available sooner.
I have a history of preterm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> (starting at 28 wks) controlled with terbutaline with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> pregnancy. With that pg, I delivered at 37 weeks after stopping the terb. Baby was fine. I have seen my OB and a maternal-fetal specialist following this m/c and no one can really tell me what happened, except that this was preterm labor, but totally different from my 1st pregnancy. The pathology showed early signs of infection and also a small to med. blood clot behind the placenta.
Finally we stopped before finishing (*lol*) because we dont wanna risk any complications, especially in 1st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. is it ok to have sex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> pregnancy? any positions that are better or worse? with or without condom / lube? thanks for your help.
Dear Amy, As you’ve already ready, premature atrial contractions (PACs), abnormal early heartbeats that originate in the upper chambers of the heart, are frequently seen in utero, especially <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. They can persist into the third <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>, but often go away <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> that time or soon after birth. Bigeminy, for our othe r readers, means that every other beat is premature. There are two issues that can become concerning here.
Today is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> time I have. And like I said, now that I'm sitting, it's fine, but when I was standing and walking it was quite evident. Not sure if I should call the doc? I don't want to be one of those nervous pregnant women who calls over everything. Thoughts?
I was just wondering who else was in their 3rd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>(: how far along are you? when are you due? what are your current symptoms? I'm 7months preg w/ a baby boy, he could come from anywhere between late may/early june. My bf & i are so excited & getting impatient! This will be our first child!!!
There are a couple times through the book though that mention having a glass of wine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> stage of labour in order to relax and sleep through contractions. I think it's put in our heads about alcohol and the effects on a pregnancy are sooo terrible. But would it really be that terrible to actually have a glass of wine in order to get a couple hours of shut eye?! Just wondering your thoughts ladies..... Note: a GLASS of wine....they don't talk about a whole bottle...
He actually self weaned because the milk was different. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> my milk was normal, and my supply was ok as long as I ate and drank normally. I'm also 5'11, normally about 155lbs. With this pregnancy I gained 45lbs, and my baby was bigger than my first baby. So I don't think that breastfeeding during pregnancy was a problem. My Dr. did suggest that I stop once I found out I was expecting, but I continued. I made sure I took my vitamins, ate well, and drank lots of fluids.
Oragasms cause can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</span>. If he said no sex, he meant no penetration and no orgasms.
if I had done this differently, or hadn't done that, would the outcome of been different? The sad reality of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> miscarriage is there is rarely anything you did or didn't do that caused it. Yes, some women suffer from clotting disorders, infections, etc. that can be treated, but the vast majority of the time it is caused by a chromosonal defect. I hate the idea of women beating themselves up wondering if something they did caused it to happen. Just not the case.
But, I'm finding I check it a lot more than once a week. Being in my 2nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>, I don't feel a lot of symptoms right now, am not feeling consistent movement, so the doppler is the reassurance that I need. Just wondering if it's bad for a pregnancy? If using it too much can be harmful, etc?
I have a 2 year old and she is about 25 pounds. This is our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> month TTC for a second child. She likes to be held every once in a while. Should I not hold her as much? How much can you lift being pregnant?
