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. ?

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
