Pregnancy symptoms at 8 weeks pregnant I think. Can I have ultrasound?

Yes you can..: Congratulations on your pregnancy. Babies are miracles of life! Certainly ultrasound can be done to confirm the pregnancy as well as estimating the age of the baby. There are centers providing 3-d ultrasound/pictures with video for a small fee--no prescription needed. But you you see your doc to get a formal eval which may include ultrasound and u can ask for a picture too :-). Good luck.

My wight is increased from the beginning of my pregnancy in the 1st trimester 8 k but I was not eating and I vomited everything why?

My wight is increased from the beginning of my pregnancy in the 1st trimester 8 k but I was not eating and I vomited everything why?

Pregnancy weight: It is very normal to gain a significant amount of weight in the first trimester, even when you don't eat or drink much during that time. During early pregnancy, a woman's blood volume will double. That increase in blood volume can account for an increase in about 8-10 lbs. Therefore, although someone does not increase their intake, their weight will still increase.

See OB: You should not be bleeding this much at 8 weeks. I advise immediate reevaluation, HCG blood tests and a pelvic ultrasound by your GYN.

I'm 8 weeks pregnant. I am having some occasional light brown stringy clot noted after wiping. No pain, bleeding, or spotting present. Is this normal?

No but not unusual: Painless vaginal spotting or staining is fairly common in early pregnancy and fortunately resolves spontaneously and easily. If you are concerned you may want to request a "viability sonogram" which will confirm the location and viability of your pregnancy and offer you peace of mind and reassurance. Make sure your Pap test and cervical screenings are also normal.

Can I take the mifepristone pill if I'm 8 weeks pregnant to stop my pregnancy? Are there any other abortion pills that I could use before my 9 week pregnancy?

Can I take the mifepristone pill if I'm 8 weeks pregnant to stop my pregnancy? Are there any other abortion pills that I could use before my 9 week pregnancy?

Not reliaby: Mifepristone, AKA RU486, is an antiprogesterone that can be use to abort a pregnancy, treat fibroids, or treat a mengioma (a type of benign brain tumor) but should be used before 49 days (7 weeks) of pregnancy and is best used under the care of a doctor and with other drugs. After 7 weeks, the safest and most effective ways of abortion are surgical. There are no other pills that are safe.

Not unusual: 8 weeks is a hard time for a lot of woman. From your history I see that you have had 2 children so you know what a commitment it is. Your hormones are in full swing and that makes everything hard. It is best to be honest and recognize how you feel, but also that you might The question is, how depressed are you?
