Unlikely: Pregnancy is a normal, natural condition and, in an otherwise healthy woman your age, they usually progress normally. If a heartbeat was heard and you are not having any symptoms of pelvic pain or bleeding, try not to worry so much. If you continue to be so worried, see your OB or midwife again, and consider some counseling or joining a support group. Just take good care of yourself! ...Read more

Yes.: You have a 70-90% chance of the pregnancy continuing. Congrats! Stay positive, be happy! Worry helps nothing and changes the chemicals in the body, so does being positive and happy. Better to have happy chemicals running through you to the baby than the other kind. See http://americanpregnancy.org/pregnancy-complications/early-fetal-development/ ...Read more

My last cycle started 7 weeks ago. At my first us my gs estimated my pregnancy at 10 weeks. There was a heart beat. Is there a potential problem?

Unclear: Are you asking.... If i bled 7 weeks ago, is it okay if my pregnancy is 10 weeks, will my pregnancy be okay? Bottom line, bleeding in pregnancy affects 25% of all pregnancies in 1st trimester. The fact that you saw a heartbeat decreases your risk for miscarriage significantly. At this point, follow doctor's instructions re pregnancy, but sounds like it's okay. ...Read more

Is it normal to b 21wks pregnant n i heard the heart beat already, its strong they said, but I have not felt  a single movement  n its my 4th pregnancy?

Normal: If you are healthy, and in the setting of 3 prior healthy deliveries, then the chance of this being a problem is very small. Many women start to feel fetal movement right around 20 weeks, but this can be delayed if the placenta is towards the front. If the heart beat sounded normal, this is very reassuring. ...Read more
