Normal growth

At twelve weeks the top of your uterus should be just above your pubic bone. You will find that even though you don't look very pregnant, by this time your jeans will no longer fit. Your uterus grows about 1 centimeter a week, on average.

This could simply be discomfort from the growing uterus. Get checked if you see bleeding or a lot of discharge. A bladder infection is also possible which can be checked with a urine culture.

No, ma'am

Take your folate & prenatal vitamins, don't smoke, drink or use drugs, eat healthily, exercise moderately & stay away from people who have the " flu." " What to Expect When You're Expecting" & the aap.org book "Your child, Birth to 5" are good reads. Find a pediatrician who does routine developmental survellance & is a good "fit" for your style of parenting.

There is a problem related to a rash that itches during pregnancy called PUPPS (Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy) and can be treated with topical hydrocortisone cream. You can also take benadryl to help you sleep at night. Talk to your doctor about this as well.
