4.5 weeks pregnant 4 months after ectopic and wondering if its normal to feel pain on the side of surgery with current pregnancy?

Need careful testing: Since your previous ectopic pregnancy places you at increased risk for another ectopic pregnancy, you need to monitor your serial blood progesterone and betaHCG levels and pelvic sonograms. Once your betaHCGs reach 1500 to 2000 mIU/ml, the location of your pregnancy should be assessed by sonography performed by a skilled and certified sonographer...and a few days later its viability determined. ...Read more

Numbers Fine: Those numbers are fine. Not sure why anyone would perform an ultrasound that early unless they thought you had a high risk of ectopic pregnancy. It is just too early to see things. Another ultrasound in 10 days should be able to locate the pregnancy. ...Read more

4.5 weeks pregnant. Been having loose stool for the last few days and mild nausea. Pregnancy related?

Likely normal: This is likely normal but can be scary in light of previous miscarriages.

Afi 8, 5 with maximum pocket of 4.5 at 32 week pregnancy is it normal?

Its OK: A normal afi is 10-20cm. So 8.5 is a little low. It is not too low and not alarming. Most obs are reassured if the deepest pocket is greater than 2cm or the total is between 10-20cm. You should keep up with daily fetal well being by doing kick counts and most obs would recommend another ultrasound, like a biophysical profile in one week. It may help to limit activity and increase your fluids. ...Read more

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and my cycle is 45 days. Is that normal?

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and my cycle is 45 days. Is that normal?

No: It's common but not normal, if you get the difference. If you have a 45 day cycle you have by definition an ovulatory disorder, can't be more specific without further info and some tests. If this is the only problem you and spouse have (you haven't been tested I guess?) then you may still be able to conceive naturally. It would also be 100% correct to seek a doctor's help. Good wishes. ...Read more

I have habit of eating raw rice frequently im NT able to control myself.! planning to get pregnant n m scared if it will effect bad? Any solution?

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy.

Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more
