List of early miscarriage symptoms and what causes a woman to miscarry during first trimester?

List of early miscarriage symptoms and what causes a woman to miscarry during first trimester?

Most common: The first trimester is the most common time for a miscarriage, which is why 1st OB appointments are often after 10-13 weeks. At this time, it could be from a host of reasons ranging from hormonal, to genetic, to medications, to anatomic. Because they are so common in the 1st trimester, we usually do not begin to evaluate miscarriages unless you have had more than 2. ...Read more

Miscarriage 2 mos ago, first pregnancy at 39. Is it possible to get pregnant again? Feel symptoms again not sure what to do

Miscarriage 2 mos ago, first pregnancy at 39. Is it possible to get pregnant again? Feel symptoms again not sure what to do

Sure it is!!: Get tested to see if you are pregnant. If you are, get in right away to see your OB. Get on prenatal vitamins with folic acid, hopefully you are already taking that. The fact that you had one miscarriage does not mean anything for future pregnancies. If you are pregnant, CONGRATS! ...Read more

Not yet: I don't see a reason why you should worry yet- it's still pretty early. As hard as this is- take your prenatal vitamins and try to be well. Time will tell you and I hope all goes well- good luck! ...Read more

How long it take to be pregnant after first miscarriage ? I am trying for 5 months and last time i got pregnant at first try

Prenancy: No one can tell you how long it will take to get pregnant after a miscarriage. As long as you're having sex then you're at risk of becoming pregnant but that is not a guarantee of a pregnancy in any woman. You should keep trying regularly and if in 12 months of trying you have not gotten pregnant then you should see your ob/gyn doctor. ...Read more

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.

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

Stopped BC 1 month ago. Not sure of Ov date. having many preg symptoms. Spotting after sex. Preg or miscarriage. Negative tests?

Negative test: If the symptoms you are having are due to pregnancy then that implies that your pregnancy hormones are high. This means the hormone would be high enough for detection. If your test are negative then you are not pregnant and you should see a doctor to evaluate other causes of the symptoms you are having ...Read more
