Avatar f tn well a few days ago i had a dr's appt and an u/s to see how things were going with the pregnancy based on some major BH contractions, as well as cramping ive been having fort the past week. dr said its normal considering im only 6 weeks away. my ds is fine, and measuring at 5lbs.
1432741 tn?1300202363 INTRODUCTION This week your baby is undergoing some extraordinary changes and developments. The head, heart, spinal cord, and some of the larger blood vessels begin to form. As these blood vessels form, the heart begins to pump fluid through them, and your baby's first red blood cells are created. Your baby is about 7 - 9 mm or 0.27 - 0.35 inches in length, (approximately the size of a grain of rice), and weighs about 1/30 of an ounce - less than a breath mint.
342988 tn?1299785956 i'm only 10 weeks and i don't think I look any different from before. I have gained a few pounds but its not noticable. I am very thin, 5'7" and pre-pregnancy I weighed about 117. I havent noticed any changes in my breasts, people say they become fuller or start feeling heavy but I havent had that only these stingy sharp pains in them at times, about 3 times a day in different parts of the breast.
171768 tn?1324233699 So, apparently my doctor does not think this is normal. He sent me immediately to an opthamologist. He was concerned that it is either a detached retna or possibly due to a blood clot. He had them draw 11 (that's right- eleven) vials of blood right there to start the blood tests to check for a clotting disorder. He is concerned because if it were due to a clotting disorder, it could possibly be linked to my preeclampsia from last time.
Avatar f tn We are getting married July 11th of this year and I am curious to know about how much weight I should gain or what kind of changes I should expect to my body by then as I'm realllly counting on my dress still fitting me! So far I have gained maybe 2-3 lbs but my boobs have grown a full cup siize and it feels like my hips might be widening (I could be imagining this part not sure though!) I'm just praying I can still fit my dress by then.
572651 tn?1531002957 Last wk was a painful week for me. Pain in different parts of my body, so annoying. I would like a redo though of my close friend's wedding. I showed up late (but I caught the good parts) because of pain and I had to leave early also because of pain. I'm sad because I missed her first dance with her new husband and the cutting of the cake. All the same, she was very understanding and reached out to me after everything was said and done to make sure I was feeling better. This week....
Avatar n tn You will notice a change in the shape and size of your stomach usually by the end of the first trimester, but like I say it really varies for each womans body shape, if they are prone to bloating, how they are carrying, and which pregnancy it is. If it is your 2nd or later pregnancy, you will typically show sooner. I had a small bump by 13 weeks in my first and at about 8 weeks in my second, but I am very thin and any change in my stomach is quite noticable. You will see some change soon!
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if the body goes through any changes really early on, even before implantation occurs? For example, does the uterus go through any changes really early on? The reason I ask is because this afternoon my uterus felt like it was being squeezed and pulled down. It was really weird and painful. I had cramps and a lot of pressure. Eventually it went away and was short lived, it lasted for maybe 20 minutes or so. Also, what's the earliest implantation can take place? Anyone know?
561183 tn?1269105492 c o m, they show you how each week changes in the babies life, it will show you a picture of the baby and what the baby looks like inside the belly. I thought it was so awsome when i was using it, and it will tell you week by week how the baby is growing, actually you dont even have to sign up for up, you can log on to website and just check it out.
Avatar n tn I read a lot of sites and know exactly what to expect next and what's going on with my body as each week progresses. It's not that I don't want you to get questions answered, but it's like I've gotta sign off this site if I read anymore super basic questions that seems like the most basic knowledge of someone pregnant. And the pooch- it's possible, though you're so early. I'm 12 and 1/2 weeks and am just starting to see a little rounding below my belly button.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the encouragement, still no changes and im having what seems to be syptoms, however this could be my mind and heart playing tricks on my body, so by sunday if i still feel the same i will take the test, congradulations on your bundle of joy! Its such a blessing i pray you stay comfortable, and healthy through this life changing ordeal, and truly happy and blessed. I will hopefully post with positive results!
Avatar n tn A positive home pregnancy test In spite of what you might read on the box, many home pregnancy tests are not sensitive enough to reliably detect pregnancy until about a week after a missed period. So if you decide to take a test earlier than that and get a negative result, try again in a few days. Remember that a baby starts to develop before you can tell you're pregnant, so take care of your health while you're waiting to find out.
Avatar n tn Doc thought it would be fine if I stopped at 12-14 weeks. Thanks for asking! This week is going by so slow because I really just want it to be OVER!!! My last night of work for the summer is tonight, so I'm hoping life is just about to get real good around here!
1666434 tn?1325265950 I have known so many people close to me suffer with their weight and watched years of yo-yo diets and extreme body changes. The one person I knew who had suffered with their weight for over 30 years finally had a gastric bypass... it wasn't until after the procedure that they found out she has an issue with her thyroid. So yes that is always in the back of my mind now. What a great post thank you so much!
Avatar n tn I also had a pelvic and tranvag us done in middle of week 4 at the er. It showed my body was ready for a pregnancy (thickened endo stripe etc) but no sac was seen. Yesterday i had another us done (both pelvic and transvag again), and i should be 5 weeks 1 day, and they saw a gest sac this time. But on the paperwork it said "no evidence of live intrauterine or ectopic preg. This could be an early IUP or even early ectopic and followup is needed".
Avatar f tn Honesty I don't feel the slightest bit like I'm going to have my period this week, none of the usual symptoms for the days prior to AF. I told my STBDH that we will know by the end of this week whether we are pregnant, he got all sweet and consoling and told me not to stress over it. I told him, well, that' s kinda easy for you to say because you are not in my body with all the daily changes. ;-) Breasts not sore No cramps/twinges No CM discharge Migraine headache on Sunday temp 96.
Avatar f tn In my case many tests over my lifetime have been wrong, misdiagnosed by Dr's etc. There have been cases where a baby does not get picked up by anything, a pregnancy goes undectected. I am not saying this is my case but I am trying to get all facts, and diff ideas as to what could be causing this. The fact I have felt limbs inside of me makes no sense. I have had 6 kids and I do know what limbs feel like. When I asked the dr what it could be all I ever get is I don't know.
341551 tn?1266984330 Another week has gone by ladies!! How is everyone feeling? Getting anxious? Any new Symptoms? Tell me your thoughts and feelings this week! Nothing really new to report on my end. I thought for SURE that I would have had my little boy by now but I guess he's going to come when he's good and ready. I feel great though, so I can't complain. I get a little uncomfortable at night when I sit too long and I've been getting more BH contractions..stronger ones too.
Avatar n tn hey everyone, last month my bf and i had PROTECTED sex for 3 days straight, my (period) came late and only lasted 2 days when it usually last 3-4, a week later i took a pregnancy test at my schools clinic because i was having light cramping for about a week. the test came back negative. and i havent had any early preg symptoms such as morning sickness, and as a matter of fact my A cup breast looked even smaller than usual.
525485 tn?1314364901 I should hopefully get the ordering OB's impression by the end of this week. My next office visit is on Monday. Im keeping my fingers and toes crossed that induction gets put on the table before I reach 42 weeks!!!! As far as I am feeling these days..just feel so heavy and at times, lots of pressure in my pelvis and this baby really pushes on my bladder at times which is very painful. Sleeping well...what's that??!?!?!? HA!
Avatar f tn i started the dreaded two week wait this week. i have done 4 rounds of clomid (plus hcg injections)-i responded really well-ovulated 1egg, 2eggs, 3eggs, 2eggs had a chemical pregnancy the second round but have not fallen pregnant since. the last round of clomid (the 4th) my levels did not get up as high as they would have liked and they told me to move on to another drug-puragon. had to stim on purgaon for 20 days til i got 1 mature egg.
Avatar n tn I wish they would have just taken my uterus out instead of trying to save it. Any ideas? Is this probably just a normal change that goes with the way your body changes when you have a baby? Thanks!
Avatar m tn They did not appear all at once, but rather over a period of weeks. I have about of these tiny red dots all over my body, which includes 1 on my forehead a couple under each eye, lower neck, upper chest, upper arms, inner forearm, abdomen, lower abdomen, Back, inner thigh; pretty much everywhere. The dots are not grouped together although in some areas a couple dots are spread 1 inch apart. When these dots started appearing I was taking chyldamicin for a bad tooth infection.
Avatar n tn I still have menses then, and my menstrual period ended last september 5. on september 6 2011 up to now, I am having this weird body changes like, breast tenderness, severe nausea and back pains. I also had cramping's but no bloody discharge. I notice that ever since sept.6 i have this whitish to yellowish discharge that I usually have whenever I will have my period. I've already tried using a pregnancy test just today (sept.8 2011) and it showed negative result.
1247142 tn?1280205663 i am 2 weeks late, but in each week i took a pregnancy test it came out negative, i dont feel different (been pregnant before but had mc) sometimes i wake up STARVING, and that's about all the changes i have had...well with stretch marks, but i keep telling myself its prob because i am eating to much, so i wait 2 more weeks or a week?....oh the husband and i are planning if i am not, does having intercourse while on your period get you pregnant or some people just pulling my leg?
537169 tn?1365275599 Thinking positive for Friday, but remembering that my body has changed, and I will not loose sight of the changes that may have or not occurred in my body and will just continue on the path I am currently on and get to Friday and hope for good news, and if not then back to the doc and see what to do next. I went to Adelaide for a family 21st and it was so cold there I got a little sick, which is not good for me being a diabetic, let alone on the verge of pregnancy...
Avatar f tn Pre-pregnancy I never felt that I deserved the praise my husband gave me over my body. I was 5'3 and 118lbs in pretty decent shape. Once I reached my 2nd trimester I was so confident in my body and had never been so happy with it even with my stretch marks. My husband compliments me all the time and I accept what he says with gratitude. I'm 39 weeks pregnant now and felt sexy until last morning when I walked in on my husband watching porn.
1432741 tn?1300202363 Your Baby By pregnancy week 10 your baby is growing big enough to weigh in! By pregnancy at 10 weeks your baby may be more than an inch and a half long, or roughly the size of a kiwi! Changes In Your Growing Baby Your baby is growing tremendously by the time you reach 10 weeks pregnant. As your pregnancy continues week by week you'll notice periods of time where your baby goes through rapid developmental changes.
