Pregnancy stages from conception to birth

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy stages from conception to birth


Avatar m tn is it possible for a child to be born in the 10th month? how do i count the pregnancy stages/months? do i include the first two months or exclude to get 9 months? Besides has she gone with someone else after me? Pls explain the fertility period. i don't want to go for DNA Tests coz i really want to understand the menstruation and pregnancy stages/phases. i am extremely depressed and this could lead to a divorce.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much for your comments. I don't know why, but it does help to hear all this from someone else. I think I already knew everything you were saying, but it is much more reassuring to hear it from someone other than family. My doctor told me that I am just no longer naive when it comes to pregnancy and he was so right. Before, it seemed so easy to get pregnant and carry to term. Now I know the reality. Thank you again, for all that you wrote!
Avatar n tn Hello, I was just wondering if anyone has ever experienced what they thought to be pregnancy symptoms right after conception(before implantation) and they actually turned out to be pregnant? Just curious.

Avatar n tn now is this ok to be happening early in the stages of pregnancy? I know it's the crucial stage where brains, spinal cord is forming...could someone out there jst point out the ok in this. please.
Avatar f tn I'm not extremely irregular but I do have a range that is anywhere from 28 - 32 days so it is hard to pinpoint my ovulation to begin with! What I have been doing is bd'ing every other day from the day my period stops to the week my period is due. I did this just the last time I got pregnant, so once and it worked. I tried again immediately after my miscarriage before even getting a normal period and it didn't work this tiime. This could be because I am all messed up from the miscarriage still.
Avatar n tn This last week I have had lower back pain, been feeling constantly hungry but feeling sick other times, a metallic taste in my mouth which comes and goes, a bit of cramping which again, comes and goes as well as over the last couple of days needing to use the toilet a lot more. Yesterday I also ranged from feeling sad and depressed to happy to crying at a couple who seemed so happy together on Relocation Relocation!!!! I have never experienced this before.
Avatar f tn I had moderate endo, two cysts drained and there was an issue with my right ovary being attached to my pelvis and needed to be moved. I got really sick from the anethesia which was not fun on Friday. DH and I have been trying for three years to conceive and did four rounds of IUI last year. I really don't want to got back to infertility treatments and hope to concieve naturally.
Avatar n tn Hey guys, I've been having some issues here with pregnancy. I'm 18 years old, I just moved to Texas all the way from Massachusetts to live with my fiancee. Well, we've been having unprotected sex pretty much every night to every other night for about 6 weeks now since I arrived here on the 26th of November. Only because we've been talking about trying to get pregnant for several months now. But in November, my period came on the 27th or 28th.
Avatar n tn I am scared of what is to come, but feeling her grow inside of me is wonderful and is a miracle. Pregnancy in itself is a gift from god. I am just trying to take one day at a time.
Avatar n tn I still feel like I am. How could she have been able to tell if its a Tubal pregnancy from just looking for some strings?! ......or even if there was a baby in there??????! Im not a skinny twig, with both of my pregnancies I didnt look pregnant until aroun 6/7 mths.....BUT NOW!!!!!!!!.....I look more pregnant than I was with both of my daughters! I am at a loss, I think Im going to make another apt to get it removed for good, and go back on the pill or something.
147932 tn?1226969710 It's very common to have spotting in pregnancy, especially early pregnancy. I spotted at about 7 weeks. I'm not 34 weeks. If you are extremely worried call your dr to have an u/s to be sure but unless it's really red I don't think you have annything to worry about.
349601 tn?1219809462 There are people who do lethal doses of drugs and alcohol in the early stages of pregnancy and go on to have healthy babies (WHEN they stop taking them). In the early stages of pregnancy (within five days of conception) your baby is sort of "protected" from things you're doing. There are women who got pregnant drunk and freak out because of what "might" be wrong with baby, and nothing ends up being wrong. You have the knowledge now, so don't take the meds.
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 n tn I have 3 children so I know what it feels like to be pregnant. I have symptoms of pregnancy, but with negative tests, don't know what to think. Will test again tomorrow since it's been about a week. Have any of you with this experience ended up being pregnant after all? Thanks!
5492154 tn?1374804606 38 weeks from conception to birth (Fetal age). Most doctors count pregnancy weeks from LMP (Gestational), a few others may count from conception to birth (Fetal age); and the week numbers may vary. Example: Week 28 (Gestational) = Week 26 (Fetal age) One thing to note is - four weeks from the first day of your last period you are considered "4 weeks pregnant", but, "in week 5 of pregnancy".
Avatar n tn some peoples bodies take longer to prodie the pregnancy hormone. how long are your cycles? i do obsess too so i might be able to help. i did not show positive untill 6 weeks with the baby i miscarried. if you know when you ovulated that would help too!
Avatar n tn The ultrasound showed that my uturas (sp) was at a normal size and there were no signs of pregnancy... So from there I had to go have my blood drawn to prove that I was pregnant before... there was low level of Hgc (? is that right) in my blood... That was on the 28 and 30 of November. Today I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive.... Could it still be showing positive from the miscarriage before... or could I really be pregnant all ready????
Avatar n tn Then on August 1st I has some light pinkish discharge so I assumed I was going to start. It went from pink to light red then brown and it only lasted for 2 and half days and my periods are always heavy and last anywhere from 5-7 days. So 2 days after the bleeding stopped, I took another hpt and this one also came out neg. I've been tired, nauseous and frequent urination. What the heck is wrong with my body?
Avatar n tn So, it is also possible you could be receiving a positive result due to the Ovidrel shot, not due to pregnancy. Wishing you the best of luck.......I am rooting for you!!!
123759 tn?1226934204 i went to the doctor today and took a pregnancy test came back negative , she told me i had all the symptoms and that it could just be to early to tell . So then i had a blood test done and it should be in later on today or first thing in the morning i am hopeing that it comes back positive .
Avatar n tn I had took numerous pregnancy test before and he had been so sad about the outcome where he wanted me to go the doctor to dispute the results. Anyway, I started drinking due to depression, anger and being sad from him hounding me to get an abortion and saying other horrible and awful things to me. He was abusive toward me and attacked me while I was pregnant so I had him arrested.
Avatar n tn I also have gone through about 12 pregnancy test over the past 2 1/2 years, do to all these symptoms , repeating to myself "I'm not crazy, rather be safe than sorry" blah! ONE OTHER (what I think is) important thing, after I birthed my son I ripped (upwards) and and when I would urinate it was very severe pain. When I was healing, I had a very rotten metallic acrid smell that the wound was permeating.
Avatar f tn I am aware that I fall into all 'unfavourable ' outcomes in regards to pregnancy outcome but I feel I need some kind of hope to hold on to ! I know what the odds are and the case studies etc.. And I have prepared myself for a congenital lyme baby but am I completely doomed? As in am I definitely going to have a really bad outcome like a still birth or neonatal death ... If baby has lyme I feel strong enough to cope and deal with this but I ant cope with loosing my baby.....
Avatar n tn Hi, I don't have reguar periods anymore due to birth control use, but I have since stop using all birth control methods. My last period was April 26, 2005. I just started getting periods every month in Dec of 2004. June 22, 2005 my period was light and reddish brown at about 3:30 am. Then later on it started to get heavy like a period but didn't stay that way because when I went to put on a super tampon it hadn't made it to the pad and it was only enough for a panty liner.
Avatar f tn Though it's hard to hear the quote you mentioned from people who don't know what it feels to lose a child I want you to hear from someone who does. God loves you, it will get better, don't give up trying. His plans for you will be fulfilled.
304970 tn?1331429594 Many couples would love to have a baby but cannot and they are willing to pay for all medical expenses during the pregnancy so I would seriously look into finding an adoption resource. Where are you from? It looks as though from your profile that you live in Massachusetts and if so, I as well live in Massachusetts and know of plenty of resources that could assist you if you decided to keep the baby or if you decided to give up for adoption.
