No it's not normal: At this point in your pregnancy, it would be best to notify your obstetrical care providers today or visit your maternity unit/hospital obstetrical service for a diagnostic evaluation / treatment of your diarrhea, your fluid- hydration status,a vaginal-cervical obstetrical exam and a 20-30 minute monitoring of your baby's heart rate and amniotic fluid volume index. ...Read more

I have really bad period pains more on my right side and can hardly move and im 11.5 weeks pregnant should I be worried?

Possibly: Many women get round ligament pains, which is a sharp pain on either side that occurs if you cough or sneeze or twist in bed. Though it is painful it is nothing to worry about. However I am concerned about a pregnancy in the tube. If you have already had an ultrasound and it showed the embryo is in the uterus then that is not an issue. If you have not had an ultrasound and pain bad go to er. ...Read more

Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Naproxen: I am sorry to hear about the period pains. Regarding the period pains you could try tylenol (acetaminophen) 350mg every 4 hrs as needed. Instead of tylenol (acetaminophen) you could also try Naproxen 220 mg every 4 hrs as needed. Menstrual cramps and pain can get worse from time to time perhaps more after a pregnancy. But if the Pain happens every month during menstruation and is much much worse, then see your physician. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are very common.

If you are concerned schedule a visit with an Obgyn for an exam and testing. ...Read more

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection ...Read more

My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

Too early to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more
