I don't think that nursing school makes much of a difference. I think experience and attitude are much more important.

It could be slight anemia and that could definitely be due to pregnancy. Pregnant women definitely need more then the normal amounts of iron and you might not be getting enough.
I am taking a class the second time around because we are doing a homebirth and I need my husband to know what to do. The teacher is a friend of mine and knows the situation and says the class is really to teach a husband how to coach. I don't need to do lots of breathing crap, that isn't the kind of labor I have.
I know several people on whom I base this opinion - First baby, they were in super duper shape (real athlete types) and exercised through the pregnancy second baby no exercising during pregnancy - no difference in labors at all between first and second. So I think exercise makes you feel better and feel better about yourself during pregnancy just like exercise makes you feel better when you aren't pregnant. However, I really don't think that it makes labor easier.

You said that you don't speak Thai well enough to explain to him - I think you need to find someone who does speak both Thai and English well enough to help you explain ASAP. Do you have any friends in other countries that you could visit and "oops" give birth there?
Sure you can get negatives and then a positive, your HCG might just might be on the lower end in the begining. Remember to test in the morning first thing when your urine has the highest amounts of HCG. Also, if you leave some tests for a long time and come back to look at them you might get a false positive, it would probably warn against this on the pkg insert.
thanks anewmama!
