Hi Dixiegal, I'm sending my prayers to you & your babies. I too have spent some time in the hospital due to my pregnancy. I was only in for 4 days due to my blood pressure getting extremely high, 170/130. I'm now at home on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. I've been told to expect an earl...

Unfortunately I don't think there is a correlation between the two. I was on progesterone shots for 10 weeks and didn't have much morning sickness at all.

Good luck to you!

Thank you so much for that. Of course the Dr I was at went through everything from chromosonal abnormalities to stillbirth, so I was extremely upset by the time I left his office. I'll take your advice and just stop worrying!

Thanks - Michelle

Hi ladies, I've been pretty quiet lately but I've been lurking around and reading your posts every few days. It's so exciting to hear how everyone is growing and changing! I had a level 2 ultrasound today and it looks like we're having a girl (Dr said he is 80% sure)!!!!! We go back in 1 month for a...

Baby Measuring Behind at 18 Weeks

Has anyone had a fetus that measured behind in growth??? I'm 18 weeks on Wednesday and the baby is measuring 1 & 1/2 weeks behind in size. Developmentally all body parts and organs look good, but it's just small for where it should be.

Any info/advice would be great!

Thanks - Michelle

Hi there. I'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday. My Dr had us doing 3 suppositories plus one shot each day. My last shot is on Wednesday, hooray!!!! I will continue the suppositories for 2 more weeks. Hope this helps.

Hi Daly, my next scan is August 7th. I can't wait! When is your next scan? This whole process is so exciting! When can they tell the sex of the baby by ultrasound? Is that usually around 20 weeks?

Brandi, you have every right to be angry. If you feel something isn't right you need to ask questions. And just asking a question isn't crying wolf! I had a doctor like that once, didn't like me asking questions. He's no longer my doctor. :) Anyway, good luck with that.

Hi Jeneden, I'll be 7 weeks tomorrow. I think the heartbeat usually starts around or just after the 6 week point. I go back on August 7th for my second ultrasound. Good luck tomorrow. Can't wait to hear your news!!!

Jeneden, just like you I was sure there wasn't going to be anything there. I was so shocked this morning when I had my ultrasound and my little baby was actually there with it's little heart just beating away! I wish you the best of luck on Wednesday. It will put you at ease to just finally see it w...

Hi Laurie, I had some light brown spotting last week as well along with some cramping. I had my first ultrasound today and everything was great. We even heard the heartbeat, 101 beats per minute. I feel so much better now, and you will too once you have your u/s.

My doctor has me on both. One shot per day and 3 suppositories per day. I'm not sure how long I'll take them. I'm over 6 weeks now. I have an appointment with my clinic tomorrow so will find out something then.

Thanks for that Daly. :lol: My friends husband said their baby was going to come out squinting from all the poking he received in her belly. Yes, I do notice that my tummy hurts more when I'm sitting and my pants are cutting into my stomach. When I unbutton and unzip it feels much better. I'm sure I...

Welcome Jen & Leah, good luck to both of you on your pregnancy tests! I'm so excited for you both and am hoping to hear that you get BFP's!!!!

This has been a really lucky board with lots of BFP's so maybe our luck will rub off on you too!!!! :P

Take care & get lots of rest - Michelle
