If you go to the doctors to early for a pregnancy test can it be wrong?

Just retest: 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

Ok: Many people are afraid of doctors. You can do a home pregnancy test. If indeed positive you need to have your pregnancy visits. If you do not like doctors you could have a midwife if one is near where you live. However if you are pregnant do the right thing for the fetus and do see a kind and gentle doctor one you can talk to and then the bond will form and you will be secure and comfortable ...Read more

Am pregnant don't know how many weeks going to the doctors next week but every morning I wake up with brown blood just drops is it bad?

Light Bleeding: Rest assured that in the early weeks of pregnancy, a little spotting or bleeding is very common. The most common cause for experiencing a brown discharge during pregnancy, especially in the later half of the first trimester, is that the body is getting rid of the older blood remnants in the cervix. As the baby grows, the original blood which is used to protect the womb is no longer required. ...Read more

I am 3 weeks pregnant. Previously lost all three pregnancies. Should I go to the doctors straight away or wait a little? What could they do to help?

Recurrent loss: Losing 1 pregnancy can be by chance, however the lost of 3 pregnancies in a row gives you a diagnosis of recurrent pregnancy loss which might be helped by a doctor's evaluation. Ideally this occurs before the pregnancy so that any anatomical problems can be ruled out. Would not hurt to see a doctor early and get your labs checked. ...Read more

Pregnant due in 8days got so much pressure I can't walk and even when I lay down I got it my doc sent me home 3day ago is this normal? When do I go bak

Sounds normal: The end of pregnancy at term is an uncomfortable time for some women. The sense of pressure is quite real, and depending on your size, you truly may not have much room left, and things like urination, bowel movements and walking can be affected. Sounds like you are getting regular care. The best person to ask of course is your physician! Good luck and hope all goes well! ...Read more
