  • Anxiety while pregnant

    I am 4 weeks and 6 days today. I am feeling so much anxiety about this pregnancy. I've been on Zoloft for anxiety in the past which worked wonderfully. I had a miscarriage back in July and the doctor was very hesitant in allowing me to be on Zoloft while trying for a baby again. They switched me to buspar a few months ago and after upping the dose a few times, it barely takes the edge off. Anybody on here take anything for anxiety? What works for you and what is a safe option?

    Blood during intercourse

    I experienced some blood during intercourse and I'm only 8 weeks pregnant, we stopped immediately but I kept bleeding until it stopped The blood was a bright red color and today this morning I got little brown spotting, what does that mean? I can't see my doctor until a few days from now so should I go to the emergency room if spotting doesn't stop? I don't feel any severe pain just tired

She rescheduled me for this upcoming Friday. This is my first time being pregnant so I don't really know but a lot of people told me it shouldn't matter?

    Gastritis/ acid reflux/ bloating

    I am about 11 weeks in my pregnancy and I'm having massive stomach issues. I feel I'm full of air, constantly burping. Does anyone else feel like this ? I also feel like my acid reflux burns my esophagus and the mouth of my stomach hurts which causes me to bloat up. Help any suggestions.
  • NIPT

    Does anyone have any advise for Non Invasive Paternity Testing? Any recommendations for places to go? I'm having a hard time finding an accredited place and I don't want to waste such a large amount of money that could be going towards my baby.
  • Not feeling pregnant

    Haven't had an ultrasound since 8 weeks and I'm 11 weeks currently. We have our next at 12 weeks but I'm just not "feeling pregnant". The few symptoms I did have seems to have been lost and it honestly is making me a bit nervous with the possibility miscarriage. :/ No bleeding no cramping. Please put my mind at ease. Anyone else out there about this far along or when you were didn't "feel pregnant". I wish I could have an ultrasound every week to check on my little....

    HCg levels

    I'm 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant this is my third with one only being successful. My lab results came back with 2,441 for hCg levels and I have to go get another test in two days. Is that usually normal? I've had a miscarriage before so it's my biggest fear having another one.
