There : There are many reasons to have spotting in early pregnancy. It can signal that the pregnancy is not healthy or perhaps in the wrong location (tubes), but more commonly changes in blood flow to your reproductive organs makes them fragile and prone to bleed spontaneously or after sex. If it is very light and stops, then do not worry about it, but if it persists or gets heavier call your dr's office and try to move your appointment up or at least request that they give you an order for an ultrasound to check that your pregnancy is ok. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Hi my hCG level was 40 then #2 is at 83 then #3 is at 319 is that good #s and hiw far along would i be in pregnancy and is it a viable pregnancy :)?
Yes: It sounds like you have a viable pregnancy definitely. Your only a few weeks pregnant. Dating impossible based on HCG numbers only, need an early ultrasound to confirm pregnancy dating because there's wide variation in HCG numbers as far as dating goes. Make an appt with doctor for us at about 6-7 weeks after lmp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When doctors use u/s date instead of lmp to count your pregnancy does it still mean your conception is 2 weeks after? The start of my 40 wks is aug3rd
Gestation: If your dates are accurate and cycles are every 28 days, use your dates to establish your delivery date. If not a series of US may help, the most accurate US is around 20 weeks. All the best. ...Read more

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?
At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
