I'm a 36 year old woman pregnant with my first child. My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage - trisomy 23. Should I get a cvs test?
Talk with your OB: The risk for trisomy increases for women over age 35. A number of different chromosomal abnormalities - including different trisomies - can happen at any age. Most often, these cause severe problems and the pregnancy is lost. Rarely a trisomy or other chromosome problem is the result of a rearrangement that one parent silently carries. Be sure show your OB the test results from your miscarriage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.
Depends: Whether you can keep your wonderful news secret will depend on how you carry the baby. For some, "flowy" tops are all that is needed to look the same for months, while others seem to grow straight out and show at 3 months. I suggest simply not offering the news, and if anyone is bold enough to ask, answer with something vague like, "why, do I LOOK it?" Good luck!! ...Read more
I still have a + pregnancy test 3 weeks after my miscarriage, the pregnancy ended at 8 weeks however was discovered at 12 week u/s. Is this normal? Tx
Yes: First, sorry for your loss. Yes,the pregnancy test may still be positive 3 weeks after a miscarriage. The HCG level has to drop off, and this can take some time.

Back to School: Wow. Perhaps you are in need of a lesson in how your body works. Once the HCG hormone level decreases then your ovaries can reset and begin ovulation for the next cycle. You have already been told here today that this can take weeks to months to be healthy. Conception occurs if there is sperm ready to meet the ovulated egg at the next cycle. Sperm take one to five days to reach this egg. ...Read more

Maybe, maybe not: Some women feel movement sooner with subsequent pregnancies because they know what they are feeling and what the sensation is like. However, others feel it later, likely due to the fact the uterus is 'looser' and more stretchy and then you don't feel the movement as soon. ...Read more

Normally at a pregnancy exam a PAP, cultures of the vagina and cervix are taken. One should refrain from alcohol and tobacco. Good luck. ...Read more
