Ok everyone today marks exactly 5 weeks since my LMP and I found out I was pregnant 10 days ago..my husband and I have been over the moon! But just a couple hours ago I went to the bathroom and noticed blood in the toilet... not a lot but fair to moderate amount... I’m freaking out and so scared of miscarriage... my midwife is sending me in to have my hcg levels tested tomorrow and then I’ll go back to retest on Thursday. What sort of numbers should I be hoping for tomorfos ? I have no clue I just know the numbers are supposed to Double every 2 days .
Hi all! Looking for recommendations on pregnancy books (other than What to Expect). What book are helpful? Which ones did you enjoy? Which ones do you recommend for a FTM?
Does anyone have any remedies for heartburn/reflux relief that has worked for you? I started taking Zantac 75. I thought I’d had it before but after dinner last night I was so miserable, then woke up about an hour after falling asleep sweating and almost vomited bc it was so bad. With my first pregnancy I got it in the third trimester and watermelon helped a lot but I don’t think watermelon would taste too good this time of year
I feel like going through pregnancy again would mean I would feel less anxious or more knowledgeable... but darn it, that ain't happening.Been getting a lot of little stabby aches and pains in the afternoon since maybe yesterday or possibly the day before. I have a desk job so I feel like laying down helps ease that discomfort but since I work in an office setting, that's not entirely possible (though I laid down yesterday on a blanket under my desk because I was tired too). Is this to be expected with maybe it being a 2nd time pregnancy (maybe things are stretching quicker than they did before since my body has already been through this and remembers)?? Of course I start to fear the worst but trying not to get ahead of myself.
