Don't worry: It sounds like you are getting good care. Try not to worry as it is not good for you nor your pregnancy. Just wait and see what the tests show. Try to enjoy your pregnancy, and do what you can to stay healthy. Drink plenty of water, eat a healthy diet containing lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, walk 45 minutes every day, and take Prenatal vitamins containing Folic acid.
