Larger amounts of mucus - especially when paired with fever, abdominal pain, cramping and diarrhea - can signal an infection. If you are noticing a change in your bowel habits or are having any of the above symptoms, you should call your doctor. They may want to see you sooner than your scheduled appointment. ...Read more

I  am about 5 weeks pregnant first hCG did NOT double but second beta DID double and is now 2027. Is miscarriage likely to happen. ?

Hcg: It is good that your beta went up to 2027. Are you having bleeding or cramping? Do you have symptoms of pregnancy? Have you had an ultrasound? At age 41 an early ultrasound and close follow up is appropriate. Speak to your OB and ask when you will be having one. Ask also if you have not had a follow up progesterone level, when it is going to be drawn. ...Read more

It is important to establish prenatal care so that periodic assessments can be made by your doctor to help guide you through the process.

Folic : Folic acid is the synthetic derivative of folate, (folic acid) which is found naturally in food so they are essentially the same thing. Folic acid/folate is important in preventing spina bifida or open neural tube defects early in pregnancy during organogenesis (weeks 5-8) is considered very important. Ideally women should be taking prenatal vitamins and Folic Acid before conceiving however 50% of pregnancies are unplanned. You are doing the right thing by taking the prenatal vitamins as soon as you found out. I wouldn't worry too much. Your doctor will discuss screening tests available early in pregnancy to evaluate how healthy the pregnancy. Together you can make plans and decisions about how to proceed. Congratulations and best wishes. ...Read more
