Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

8 weeks pregnant & on prometrium (micronized progesterone) due to vaginal bleeding at 4 weeks. Heartbeat at 6 weeks, another ultrasound scheduled next week. Miscarriage risk?

Slightly above norm: Bleeding during pregnancy does put you at slightly increased risk. Know, however, that 25% of women experience 1st trimester bleeding and the majority of those go on to have successful term pregnancies. Only time will tell. Best wishes and good luck with this pregnancy. ...Read more

7 weeks  pregnant, no cramping, very  very light spotting . Had previous miscarriage at 8 weeks, should I worry?

Hard not to worry: Anytime you gave lost a pregnancy it creates anxiety the next time.Sadly, many pregnancies do not go beyond 10-12 weeks, but not everyone knows they had a miscarriage - they just thought it was a heavy period.Nowadays it is easy to do pregnancy tests so any change such as bleeding raises the question. To get appropriate direction based on you, maybe be seen, if you miscarry again you need checking. ...Read more

4 wk pregnant at 3 days of pink spotting. Hcg was 59 at 3 weeks 6 days. Doc thinks implantation. Numbers ok? Worried about miscarriage.

4 wk pregnant at 3 days of pink spotting. Hcg was 59 at 3 weeks 6 days. Doc thinks implantation. Numbers ok? Worried about miscarriage.

Need serial betaHCG: Your blood betaHCG of 59 seems a bit low and your concerns are understandable. But if your HCG levels are repeated about every 2 days and they continue to double accordingly, you and your obstetrician can have a better idea of the progress of your pregnancy until a pelvic sonogram can be indicated. ...Read more

Period Always on Time , Unprotected Sex Period 5 Days Late Then Light Bleeding Turned Into Spotting Lasted 4 days. Neg Test At 9/12 DPO . pregnant?

Period Always on Time , Unprotected Sex Period 5 Days Late Then Light Bleeding Turned Into Spotting Lasted 4 days. Neg Test At 9/12 DPO . pregnant?

Certainly possible.: I don't know what you mean by "9/12 DPO" but can offer some generalities. Since your periods are regular, it's likely that you ovulate regularly. There is about a 4-5 day window each month during which intercourse can result in conception. It's not uncommon to have mild bleeding/spotting when the embryo implants in the uterus. Do a 2nd pregnancy test if your period is another week late. ...Read more

I'm 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Got positive pregnancy test at 15 dpo. Initial hCG =26 and progesterone =24. At 19dpo hcg=46 & Prg =3.9. Will I m/c?

I'm 4 weeks and 6 days pregnant. Got positive pregnancy test at 15 dpo. Initial hCG =26 and progesterone =24. At 19dpo hcg=46 & Prg =3.9. Will I m/c?

Hard to say: It is possible but not necessarily so. Supplemental progesterone may be indicated but any one test can certainly be wrong. It's not time to give up hope yet. Best wishes for a good out come. Remember, most miscarriages are because there was something wrong with the baby and not because of anything you did or didn't do. ...Read more

3weeks late on period,negative preg test,mild stomach cramps at times, lower back pain,brown discharge at times,and dizzy at times?

3weeks late on period,negative preg test,mild stomach cramps at times, lower back pain,brown discharge at times,and dizzy at times?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. 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

5 weeks preg. 3 weeks late for pd. spotting at 2 weeks late. Hpt's getting fainter. No pregnancy symptoms, no bleeding. Am I preg still?

Possibly: The only way to know for sure is to see your doctor and consider getting a blood pregnancy (HCG) test. You can sometimes spot early in pregnancy, and this is normal. However, there is certainly a possibility of early miscarriage. See your doctor ASAP. Best wishes. ...Read more

At 28 weeks am i 7months pregnant?

Yes: It is confusing, because 28 weeks is not yet 7 calendar months, because most months are more than 4 weeks long. However, doctors do consider 28 weeks as being 7 months pregnant. The "months" are more vague, and "weeks" more exact, so doctors usually count weeks instead of months. ...Read more

Depends: It is not uncommon to spot or bleed during early pregnancy if you have not been evaluated, however, you should be. Contact your md. Normally an sonogram and possibly blood test will help to rule out any problems like ectopic pregnancy or other potential problems. ...Read more

Accuracy of home pregnancy test 21 days after intercourse? Or 31 days after? Breastfeeding. No periods. Spotted once. Ovulation pains. Light crampin.

Accuracy of home pregnancy test 21 days after intercourse? Or 31 days after? Breastfeeding. No periods. Spotted once. Ovulation pains.  Light crampin.

Urine hcg: A pregnancy test depends upon the concentration of hcg, the pregnancy hormone, in urine. A negative test means the level of HCG is undetectable, but that can happen early in pregnancy. A positive test means pregnancy. Since you are breastfeeding, and are not having regular periods, you cannot rely on counting days if you are avoiding pregnancy. To prevent pregnancy, use birth control. ...Read more

Three negative home prgnancy tests after unprotected sex. One at 40 days one at 37 days one at 30 days. Still very late period. Why still late period?

Three negative home prgnancy tests after unprotected sex. One at 40 days one at 37 days one at 30 days. Still very late period. Why still late period?

Don't discount: the stress of worrying (it sounds like) that you are pregnant! The hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle, progesterone and estrogen, are constantly in a state of flux and they determine when menstruation starts. Stresses including illness, fatigue, travel, worrying about pregnancy, can all have an affect. Your period should come; 40 days is 12 days late. Pursue reliable contraception, if need ...Read more
