Avatar f tn Is there any website describing stages of pregnancy and development of various parts and nutritional needs for helathy pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I had a m/c at 14 wks with my middle baby's twin and a d and e at 19 wks and had complications from that and had to have a d and c. It was 4 yrs ago. Last yr I had 4 1st term m/cs. I was not given any reasons as to why they were happening to me but I realized I had undiagnosed urinary tract infections last yr with them. I'm now 31 wks with my 4th...Yes you can become pg and go on to deliver a beautiful healthy baby after suffering a m/c.

Avatar n tn My pregnancy went very well - we only increased my dosage once during the pregnancy and to be honest during my pregnancy was the best i've felt in a long time. They test it once every trimester during the pregnancy and if there is cause for concern they will test it more often.
298560 tn?1292280503 Corticosteroids have been used during pregnancy, but are classified in pregnancy category C; neonatal adrenal suppression and other adverse effects have been reported. Relaxation exercises and massage may be preferable to medication for treating spasticity during pregnancy, said Dr. Birk. Patients should also understand "that some muscle cramps are a normal part of pregnancy and are not necessarily related to MS.
342988 tn?1299785956 ) I go back to the doc July 7th..i am soooo ready! And for that suckie pregnancy test..don't worry about long as it was positive..
Avatar f tn ) yeah, I have had a couple glasses with this pregnancy (29 weeks tomorrow) and had 3 glasses of red wine total with my first. Just curious how everyone felt about it..
Avatar n tn Send us a note saying that you would like to communicate with one of our volunteers about pregnancy, and you will be matched up with someone like me who has been there and done that. Then you and the volunteer can communicate privately and more in detail about your concerns, and the volunteer can "walk" with you through a pregnancy if you do decide to have a baby.
Avatar n tn Then at 6w 1d we saw the heartbeat. Embryo development is sooo fast at these early stages. I am surprized you even had an u/s this early. Most ob's would not do an u/s till 7 weeks. I am sure on Friday you will see the h/b. In any case, your should wait till 7 weeks at least. Good luck!!
Avatar f tn Ive heard from plenty of mothers that they have smoked throughout they're pregnancy and my cousin actually smoked cigarettes and marijuana threw her full pregnancy and the baby came out fine... my friends who have had babies actually have smoked cigarettes during they're pregnancy and the babies came out fine .. whats up with that? i hear that smoking is really bad and shouldnt be done during pregnancy .. what do you think about it?!?! have you smoked during your pregnancy?!?!
Avatar n tn I have a friend who bled like a period her first and second month of pregnancy. The doctor did an ultrasound and told her that her baby's heart stopped beating and she was miscarrying. The doctor told my friend that since she was already miscarrying, he wouldn't do a D&C. Well, thank God she didn't. That baby is now 3 yrs. old. Also, go to this web-site to read an incredible case of a woman who bled in her pregnancy. It is something. http://www.epinions.
Avatar f tn He is a result of our first try, my last pregnancy a result of our second, and this pregnancy is a result of our third. And I probably wouldn't have gotten so lucky if not for the charting. I still get blue thinking about my m/c, but I try to focus on my son and my new little angel, and my husband, who can be a ****, but is great for the most part. Anyway, best of luck. Keep us posted.

Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03).
272759 tn?1270489194 sorry for all of the questions. my husband and i are so excited about this pregnancy. we just want the baby to be healthy and a safe pregnancy. any help is appreciated!
Avatar f tn There are several devoted to the stages of pregnancy. I'd ask, not seeking an answer here, how is your weight - thinking the development of a pregnancy often couples with weight gain...and if there isn't enough room in the chest cavity it could, I am guessing, restrict breathing some.
1117252 tn?1259723379 Small breast buds are present on both sexes. Head hair is now coarse and thickest. The development is continued postnatally with child development stages.
Avatar n tn I have never heard of that and my doctor sure didn't tell me of such a pregnancy. I took another bpt on Monday and this time my hcg level was over 2000. I hope that this is a good thing. My hcg levels continue to increase. So, how can your sac continue to grow if there is no baby inside? If there is no baby then what happens to the sac? Were you having any symptoms, if so what were they or did you just show up for your ultrasound and that's when you found out?
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor on Dec.1,2003 and they gave me both a urine and blood pregnancy test that came back negative. I've been having mild cramps from time to time but I really don't feel pregnant. My stomach is still flat and I always feel empty other than that I'm normal. What are my chances of still being pregnant?
233562 tn?1282771982 My cousin is 40 years old and has never been able to have a child, so we thought he was sterile. This summer he started seeing this women who is 45 and they were really happy and things seemed to be going good. In september they announce that they are pregnant. And the entire family was in shock because he was never able to get anyone pregnant but we got over it and were really excited for him. She told us her due date was May 4 2010 and we were happy because that is his sisters birthday.
9345822 tn?1403208005 and read the subjects for each community/forum. There are several on pregnancy during various stages of development of the fetus.
Avatar n tn Well, I have been ecperiencing pregnancy symptoms without the exception of morning sickness which I experienced throughout my 1st trimester of my last pregnancy. I have been taking pregnancy tests since May and they have all come out negative but now I am freaking out because I am feeling movement in my stomach, sometimes kicks. So I am seriously considering getting a blood test or a sonogram because the suspense is killing me.
Avatar n tn It's amazing the difference a week can make in the development of your baby and you don't want to decide that the pregnancy is a failure too soon. And your Dr is doing vaginal u/s right?
Avatar n tn I am really sorry, but I have not read or have any knowledge of an aprox 4 to 6 week fetus going thru w/d, rather the concern would be more of development of the fetus and the impact of drug usage during this time. I would strongly recommend you make another appt with your doctor and get more specific information which will give you the knowledge you need to make the right decision for all involved.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Claims of weight loss, increasing energy, improve mood, are safer, and many others have been made. Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic. The term Bioidentical Hormones is not a medical term, it is a marketing term used to imply an exact copy of the hormones produced in the body.
Avatar n tn My LMP period started around 8/12. I am 41, 1st pregnancy. I've had two dr appts, results below: First u/s and blood test on 9/24. The u/s showed a sac and yolk but no fetal pole. HCG level 28,100. 2nd u/s on 10/6. The u/s showed a sac, yolk and now “a group of cells which is the baby” (they did not use the term “fetal pole” and I’m not sure if it is the same thing or not). But now there was no hb detected.
Avatar f tn I think your baby is fine go to www. safefetus.
724730 tn?1280168504 With it being my first child, I am excited about looking up stages of development, but I am confused about whether they go by gestational age or weeks based on the first day of my last period. I would appreciate any clarity. There is so much happening in the development of the baby that two weeks makes a huge difference to what is happening in there!
Avatar n tn I had a Hep C treatment which wiped out my ovarian function, I wish I had known or the doctor had told me the side effects, because the H-C treatment was to clear the path for pregnancy. Now I am 43 and have FSH reading at 39. I am told my chance to pregnancy is around 1% and told to use donor egg. I am thinking of trying DHEA but no one out there will work with me.
Avatar f tn im going to post this now but will reply with a more indepth one later, basiclly im a 27 year old 5 motnh pregnant woman with agoraphobia, panic attacks gad and severe depression, because of the pregnancy im off most my meds so ive been housebound more lately than not...
