In the dark

I am supposedly in my 12th week of pregnancy don't know whether I am really that far along - hopefully we'll find out on 13 December. Has been pretty plain sailing so far except some brownish discharge around the time I would be expecting a period plus some puffiness of hands and some headaches.

I'm on antibiotics as my doctor thinks I have an infection but I think it is a suppressed period - I have endometriosis and I am sure that it is all linked. Being in the dark has got me worried and I don't take to my midwife but I have decided to air my concerns about the puffy hands and headaches and ask about the brown discharge.



I am 39 and this is my second pregnancy. Last year, I had an induced miscarriage - there was no heartbeat at the ultrasound (9weeks). Yesterday, my boyfriend and I just saw our baby's heartbeat - I am 8 weeks and 5 days. It is freaking us out a little bit.Ö

Anyway. I love to eat but watching commercials (with fast food) makes me want to puke. I am also having hot flashes at work (I wait tables) and nausea here and there, but no getting sick. We are also praying everyday and I am just hoping that this one hangs in there. I am so worried about everything all the time!!!


Scared too

I had a miscarriage back in August. The doctors told me I have a bicournate uterus, but don't know if my m/c was related to that. This month I am late for my period and I am afraid of doing a pregnancy test, since I am afraid to experience another loss. My breasts donít feel sore and the last time I got pregnant they were sore for only for a couple of days.

Please pray for me,


So Scared

Hey, I'm 18 and have been against sex before marriage all my life. My parents feel very strongly about it. I just started university in October and one night when I was very drunk I had a one-night stand with a guy I donít even know. I remember him using a condom but I donít remember the night enough to know exactly what happened.

Iím now a couple days late on my period and dreadfully scared, my stomach has felt a little bloated and I've had cravings. Iíve ordered a pregnancy test, which should be along in the next day or so, but I am so scared. If Iím pregnant I have no one to support me. My parents will be disgusted and I donít even know the father, and I just started university and am loving it. It would b the worst possible thing which could happen to me right now...


Terrified and Excited

I just found out that I'm pregnant. I haven't gone to the doctor yet, but have had several positive HPT's and have fatigue and tender breasts. No morning sickness yet. I have a good friend who had a miscarriage last winter and I am terrified that it's going to happen to me! (She's five months along now, by the way and doing fine.)

I haven't even had a blood test and I'm going crazy with fear. I'm about five weeks, and I can't wait until my second trimester! At least then I might feel a little more at ease. I'm so happy for everyone and praying for you all.
