I think I am approximately 5 weeks 5 days pregnant, based on
Hi I think I am approximately 5 weeks 5 days pregnant, based on lmp, I had a positive hpt on this past Friday (faint lines on First response and wondfo, pregnant on clear blue digital). Sunday night I had dark brown spotting only when wiping 1 time, Monday I had pretty consistent light pink mucusy looking spotting when I wiped, enough that it was defenitly obvious on toilet paper, but not enough that it ever got on my panties. It stopped overnight and had a scant amount this morning, today at work it will increase 1 time I wipe and be barely visible the next time I wipe. No cramping just some occasional twinges in my lower abd nothing uncomfortable. No clots, not bright red just pink. We had sex on Sunday and I work as nurse, this is our first pregnancy after trying for 14 months so we are obviously terrified about this, talked to my obgyns nurse, she didn't seem concerned said it was normal, and unless it increased or I had s/s of miscarriage just to monitor it....My apt is not until 11/16, and they didn't even want me to do a blood test to confirm pregnancy....HPTs are still showing faint positive lines (Like when first tested positive, not lightening or darkening)...Should I be concerned??
I am having my first period that is not just spotting since
I am having my first period that is not just spotting since a miscarriage on 8/1 and it is extremely heavy - so heavy that it doesn't seem normal. Along with that I have had heart palpitations for almost a month.Does this sound normal?

I had a d&c for missed miscarriage (heart stopped at 8w3d)
I had a d&c for missed miscarriage (heart stopped at 8w3d) and 5 days later (Sept 26) had emergency surgery due to ovarian torsion and sepsis shock which required removal of my left ovary. Two large 5cm cysts had formed quickly (not the corpus luteum cyst) on the left ovary and caused torsion. The ovary was un-twisted but when the largest cyst was popped the ovary "withered" and was dead. I am two weeks into recovery and ultrasound showed a 3cm cyst on my right ovary and it is causing pain in my right side. I am 34 years old, had been on birth control for 15 years until getting off it in May and getting pregnant in July and it was my first pregnancy. My husband and I desperately want to have at least 1 baby. Would you recommend I get on birth control for a couple months to stop the cysts? Or would it cause more harm than good? I''m concerned the hormone changes would again cause shock on my system when I got off the BC again, but I''m also scared of more cysts since I''m down to 1 ovary.

I am 7 weeks pregnant with twins and I am concerned about
I am 7 weeks pregnant with twins and I am concerned about Twin B. Twin A has had a heartbeat since my first visit and it was thought that Twin B was not going to develop and that my body would absorb it but On Tuesday I had an early OB scan done and Twin B had a heartbeat identified. So both twins have a heartbeat. My concern however is when my doctor saw me to go over the scan today he stated that Twin B is measuring about 5 days behind Twin A. Could something be wrong with my baby?

I have had PCOS for over 10years, July 2016 I started taking
I have had PCOS for over 10years, July 2016 I started taking insoitol 2g twice a day and NAC 600mg twice daily, about five days ago I got a positive pregnancy test. Not sure to stop taking these supplements because I feel they help sort out my hormones enough for me to get pregnant but scared it's toxic for the baby. Very worried about miscarry if I stop, should these supplements be stopped once pregnancy is confirmed?

The bacteria ureaplasma urealyticum was found in my pap
The bacteria ureaplasma urealyticum was found in my pap smear results. I was giving antibiotics for it. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and I am aware that the bacteria can cause miscarriage. Now that I have completed the medicine is it OK for me to have sex with my partner again? He went to a doctor that told him that he didn't have to be treated.
