Pregnancy symptoms : Discharge is very common in pregnancy but mostly it is white and not associated with odor, irritation or itching. I recommend that you see your Ob to have yours evaluated. Cramping is common in the 1st few months of pregnancy but should be tolerable. See your dr if it's becoming unbearable. ...Read more

I'm almost 7 weeks pregnant and have had disabling back pain for about 3 weeks. Is this because of the pregnancy? Please help

Possibly but: At 4-7 weeks, there should not be that much change to cause the backpain. You need to see an orthopedic doctor with a disabling back pain. You may blame your crazing for pizza or ice cream on the pregnancy, but the back pain does not pass muster. ...Read more

I am 7 weeks pregnant, had slight brown spotting and back pain, went to ER on Weds ( HX of miscarriages). Ultra sou8nd shows everything is fine no sig?

What's the question?: What does the ultrasound actually show? And blood tests? And exam? If they show that the gestational sac/fetal pole is present and cervix is closed without evidence of inevitable miscarriage, and you haven't bled since, there are probably no long-term significance to your pregnancy (is that what you are asking for by "sig"?) ...Read more

I am 12 weeks pregnant. Why am i still sick and my back hurts?

Be patient.: Some women never fully get over the nausea of pregnancy until delivery. Be patient - most women report improvement after 14 weeks. Backaches should improve with massage and tylenol (acetaminophen) - if they do not, or are associated with any fever or pain in your flanks please see your obstetrician asap as that could be an indication of kidney infection (pyelonephritis) that can be very serious. Take folic acid! ...Read more

Hello, : Hello, they may have done a pregnancy test that shows if you are pregnant or not but does not give specific levels of HCG (that could help to date the pregnancy). So, now you know you are pregnant. The next thing to do is to make an appointment with an obstetrician. The obstetrician will be able to help develop a time table for how far along you are in your pregnancy. Make sure to let your obstetrician know that you are experiencing morning sickness and some back aches, so that she or he can make appropriate recommendations. Please ensure that you take prenatal vitamins and that you avoid alcohol in the meantime. ...Read more

What does it mean when your lower back hurts when you are pregnant?

Physics & nerve pain: 1) your center of gravity changes with weight and bulk being added to the front of your body, so you and your spine adjust to accommodate thus. 2)your pelvis enlarges and the sacro-iliac joints (where pelvic bones and spine join) are stretched. 3) direct internal back pressure from enlarged uterus. These factors can all activate pain sensors in your sensory nerves causing sensation of pain. ...Read more

Of course you could!: "Stomach pain" can be caused by lots of things & may indeed originate outside the GI tract. Further evaluation is in order before anyone can answer "what to do." Your doctor will want to re-examine you as well as know the quality, timing, duration, exact location, & associations (eating, position, activity, stooling, urinating) of your symptoms to better direct the next appropriate testing. ...Read more
