I'm nine weeks pregnant and im not feeling any movements about a week ago I was feeling something. Does that mean somethings wrong?

Not: Not to worry. If you are pregnant for this first you are likely to start feeling the baby moving around 18 to 20 weeks. A woman who has had babies before may feel it as early as 15 to 17 weeks. Feeling the baby kick might feel like a little fluttering sensation. The first time you feel the baby kick is called quickening. You probably had gas moving through your GI or tract something else. The baby's movements can't be felt by the mother at 9 weeks. Congratulations on your pregnancy. ...Read more

I just found out I'm about nine weeks pregnant. Before I knew I was out drinking...A lot. I've stopped but am scared. Will my baby be ok most likely?

I just found out I'm about nine weeks pregnant. Before I knew I was out drinking...A lot. I've stopped but am scared. Will my baby be ok most likely?

In this situation: Your baby will be best helped if you have no more alcohol until after the delivery. There is little to do to change the past. There is also no guarantee that there has not been harm. But, healing is real and brain development will be ongoing as the baby grows inside of you. Now is the time to take your prenatal vitamins, to eat well; and to be in fellowship with expectant mothers not drinking. ...Read more

Hyperemesis: Some nausea & vomiting in pregnancy rates high enough to warrant the diagnosis of hyperemesis gravidarum. This is not a time to be losing weight so control of vomiting can be important. An ultrasound can reassure women about their pregnancy and rule out molar pregnancy which can also induce severe vomiting in the first trimester. ...Read more

Hi I am nine weeks pregnant. ...Doctors found that I am having monochoronic and monoamniotic twis...Wat are the complications. I want both the babies?

Hi I am nine weeks pregnant. ...Doctors found that I am having monochoronic and monoamniotic twis...Wat are the complications. I want both the babies?

Mono/mono not likely: Only 1% of all twins or 1/10, 000 pegnancies are monoamniotic - so it is much more likely that you have monochorionic diamniotic twins instead. The dividing membrane cannot be seen at this early pregnancy stage but that dies bot mean it is not there. Mono/di twins have a 15% risk of ttts. Mono/mono twins have risk of cord entanglement and sudden death and merit hospitalization after 24 weeks. ...Read more

Miscarriage?: Inability to see a pregnancy in the uterus at 9 wks after bleeding means either a spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) or an ectopic pregnancy outside of the uterus. Did an earlier sono show an early uterine pregnancy? If yes, then you miscarried. If no then could be either and they need to confirm that your HCG levels are dropping (miscarriage) or not (ectopic). Very important to know the differenc. ...Read more
