happy: Check out Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction (SPD). It occurs during pregnancy due to a release of the relaxin hormone getting your body ready to make room for baby. It doesn't happen with every pregnancy... I've only had it once (and it really stunk). So, it could actually be a GOOD sign for you as far as the baby being okay I would recommend (just for peace of mind) listening to the heartbeat at your appointment. Once you hear the heartbeat at this point, your odds of miscarriage are very low.

Thanks for the insight, Cagnew. I don't think that's what's going on, but I'm keeping it as a frame of reference in case this feeling intensifies. It went away after about an hour yesterday. It's a feeling I experience when not pregnant... Doing a little online research, it seems like it may just be how my body adjusts to the expulsion of the potential not reached... I typically sort of enjoy the sensation, but being pregnant, it created a little nervousness.

In other news, I'm all over the place with feeling anxious and feeling like things are really progressing. Today I feel great again. I actually feel pregnant. My belly is bloating even before the end of the day (though by the end of the day it's entered a whole new stage!) For me, personally, I can look at my body and know that I'm pregnant. Others can't yet, but that'll come. My posture feels like it's shifting, my ribs feel different, and that questionable "is this the baby?" is not... THIS IS THE BABY!!! Even my husband is starting to feel it... Today, I'm quite confident and blissed out again. As with New England weather, give it a moment, and that may change...

So. I am sure I am overanalyzing but does anyone have any early measurements of their yolk sac? The reason I ask is because I had two ultrasounds a week apart. The first one (5 weeks 3 days) the yolk sac was 3.17mm, the second one (6 weeks 3 days) the yolk sac was 4.73mm. I know that it is still within normal range but it concerns me that it grew that much and I don't know if that's normal or not. I also know that 1mm isn't really all that different when trying to measure on an ultrasound. Does anyone have any experience or guidance with this? My doctor didn't seem concerned so like I said I am probably freaking myself out more than anything.

Wish I knew more about your birth center options, but I'm totally clueless there as well. The only other thing I can think of is that I've heard of mothers getting a hotel room very close to their intended hospital/birth center, as soon as they feel labor is getting underway, so they can labor there for however many hours they need before it's time to transition over to the birth center. Perhaps that would be an option worth exploring for you. Man, do I ever feel you on the traffic thing. (I'm actually worrying at this point that my child's going to be born in the car because I work about 90 minutes from home right now! Hoping I can get a pretty hardcore recommendation to work from home for the last few weeks.)

The state of midwifery in Maryland is just bizarre to me. I know the laws are tough on CPMs, but it's truly mind-boggling that there aren't at least a few more CNMs wanting to build a practice here--seems like there would be SO much demand! Is it just the hostile legal environment? Susan delivered our second, and when there was a surprise need to take her to the pediatrician right away (normal, healthy birth but we'd missed a cleft lip and cleft palate, which needed to be addressed immediately for effective feeding), I was quite surprised by how stressful Susan seemed to find it. She offered to accompany us with a look like she was girding herself for battle! It was a real relief when our craggy, old-school pediatrician nodded approvingly and said "Home birth! That's wonderful. Way it should be." Anyhow, I digress... If life were different, I'd absolutely be going to nursing school to become a Maryland CNM myself, because I think it's just atrocious how few options we've got.

Was Joey your midwife for your second?
I know, MD is crazy. I was with Evelyn for my second. My hubby's talking pretty seriously about moving to Kansas City for his start-up (he just finished 3+ months at the TechStars internet startup incubator there and really loved everything about KC) and apparently it's a town rife with midwives. From what I can tell, if you're on the Kansas side, they don't consider birth to be a "medical event" so you can have anyone attend you that you like - certifications seem inconsequential! But here in a major east coast double metropolitan area, with a good size homebirth community, I can't find a legal midwife??

On to new anxieties (besides the fact that I'm starting to feel like this whole pregnancy is in my own mind, and that my subconscious is trying to give me an excuse for why I am so super bloated, without making me feel fat...what is wrong with me??): Moving 1000 miles away from my family while pregnant, with farm animals, and homeschooling??? Ack! But maybe it won't happen. And then I'll still have to figure out this midwife mess...

heatbrown, I used to live north of KC, MO and have visited family there quite a bit. I would say that KC, MO has a high crime rate and it is a city that is geared towards a nightlife with blues and BBQ, not really family life. KC, KS is a bit different, much more rural. In general, KS seems to be a better state for religious freedom (a.k.a. medical freedom), but the rurality can get to some people. I know that a lot of people choose to live in Overland Park, KS, because it is close enough to KC, but the land value is much higher than most of KS (and much of KC), so you're looking at a more comfortable life if you can afford it. The last time I did a search for naturopathic doctors, they were all in Overland Park, as MO and NE are states that do not encourage or ban those types of doctors.

Ooh, thanks Valerie, that's all really good info!! Yes, my husband was living the bachelor's life with his co-founders while he was out there (might explain why he had so much fun if they were the target audience of the city, so to speak!) while I was stuck at home with the kiddos! I would prefer the rural life (i do have goats and chickens after all), but since we would only be moving there for a couple years, hubby would rather live within walking distance of shops/town, and have one last chance to get that out of his system (he says he misses that from when we lived in LA - but we NEVER walked anywhere there...NOBODY walks in LA!).

Feeling a bit anxious. My breast tenderness has suddenly disappeared today and I am up past 9 pm, not feeling tired. Can't tell if I feel sick to my stomach with anxiety or pregnancy nausea. My first m/c was a missed m/c, so I am worried. I just made 8 was yesterday and saw a heartbeat at 6wks 5 days.

Thank you for this! When my symptoms finally calm down *fingers crossed* I will be sure to come back and read this so I don't panic.

It's been SO different from my son's pregnancy, I was sick all the time! I think every pregnancy is very different, so you really can't count on symptoms to tell you everything is okay. My biggest symptom this time is FATIGUE like crazy. If I don't get enough rest, I do start to get more nauseated.

My symptoms have decreased significantly since i hit 10 weeks. I was throwing up every day with constant nausea and now i have a blurb of queasiness occasionally at some smells. My breasts have been on and off tender but the tenderness and swelling has mostly subsided. I am still very tired and peeing a lot. I have never stopped throwing up before 15 weeks so this is new for me. I have all girls so I'm hoping that a little bit of testosterone is whats making this one different but the idea i could conceive a boy is so foreign!
We saw the bouncing baby yesterday so that calmed my freak out.

My symptoms have decreased since 10 so Mark has passed, some days alomost gone, some days kinda there. I think it's the slow exit from first trimester....

Thanks for all of the replies! I just turned 8 weeks on Saturday, so, it seems early. And I have experienced a missed m/c before. While I don't live in a constant state of fear, anxiety definitely creeps in.

What I didn't realize, though, is that while I had started taking B6 for nausea about a week ago, it can also ease breast tenderness and, of course, fatigue. Feeling nauseous today, bit psychologically much better.

But, in my panic, I did order a fetal doppler yesterday morning. They have really come down in price since I rented one (and ended up purchasing it) from Belly Beats 9 years ago with number one. And since the supplier is in the same city, I should have it tonight. I know I may not be able to hear the heartbeat yet, but, I'll have the doppler for when I can. *crossing fingers*

I've been worrying since I feel like i am in the "make or break" stage of the first trimester. My symptoms have been awful so logically I know this is looking really good especially since I've seen a healthy heartbeat twice. I was laying with my husband and said "promise me our baby is going to be okay". Now I know he can't really promise but he has been very spiritually connected to this little one and can sense if the baby is strong or not… anyway he did promise me. The cool part was as soon as he said that the light in our room brightened in a very noticeable way. I feel like that was a sign from someone/somewhere that our baby is going to be just fine. And yes.. I know this sounds crazy.

It doesn't sound crazy. I am happy for you that you received a comforting sign.

I don't think that sounds crazy at all--it sounds wonderful. And how beautiful and special that your husband is so deeply connected to his child already! For so many fathers it can be a struggle, so it's really lovely that he is already so tuned in.

So glad you are feeling reassured by these things. But I don't blame you for just wanting to be past the "make-or-break" stage already.

I feel you, Jordan. I'm starting to get really anxious just counting down these next 3 weeks. I'm hoping my ultrasound next Friday will give me some peace of mind.

I told my family this weekend, all who were overjoyed. That night, and for the next few days I had blood tinged discharge. I was (and still am a bit, but it's been about 4 days without) so scared. The night that I shared with the Facebook world last time, I miscarried. I thought it was happening all over again. Some days I feel the uterus, and some days I don't. 1st trimester ends on my birthday, just a few days away. I thought I'd breath easier after that marker, but I think that may not be true. Perhaps when my belly actually shows growth I'll breath easier? It's a roller coaster of feeling confident and feeling nervous that I'm trying to balance without stress.

The more people I tell, the more anxiety I get. Last night I had a dream I miscarried and woke up so relieved, I just kept thanking God over and over until I fell back asleep. I hope you're able to realax a little @happyday8598 I know how crappy it is to stress about it all the time. Hope everyone is doing well!

I have my second ob appointment in about 12 hours, and I'm laying here right now feeling completely paranoid. I'm so nervous that I'll get bad news. We saw the heartbeat last time and everything looked good, but I still don't feel comfortable yet.

I'm getting more anxious the closer I get to my first appointment. Even though I'm sick, tired, and not having anything to make me think anything is amiss (no cramping, spotting), I'm terrified we won't find a heartbeat at the appointment. My belly has deflated somewhat in the last week (no more constipation!) and i guess that's enough to trigger my anxiety. Plus, DH just took a new job and his first day is the day of our midwife appointment, so I'll be by myself. Sigh. Two more weeks before the appointment.

I have my first appointment on Friday (at 11w 3d) and am starting to feel a bit anxious too. When I miscarried in March, I started spotting the day I had my first appointment with the midwife, which is why I think anxiety is getting triggered. This time I made a point to schedule my first appointment further in (so, no obsessing about HCG levels etc.), but now waiting to hear the heartbeat is excruciating! Up until this point, I have felt relatively chill and confident, but my symptoms have decreased a bit this week, which is adding to my worry. My husband keeps saying "everything's fine" and claims "fatherly intuition". Since we have had 2 miscarriages, his confidence is reassuring. Anyway, can't wait until Friday!

Oh, my. I could use a little reassurance if anybody has a moment, today--I saw some bright blood in the bathroom this morning. Just a very small amount, all on the toilet paper and nothing in the bowl, but this feels VERY alarming to me.

For background, I've been battling a stubborn yeast infection for weeks, and I finally finished what felt like a loooong treatment course, so my husband and I had sex for the first time in a while last night. It wasn't particularly vigorous, just some "hey, I really missed you!" enthusiasm, and we both stayed in bed and went to sleep afterward. Got up this morning and, first thing, saw red on the toilet paper.

I have also never, ever so much as spotted during either of my previous pregnancies, which makes me feel rather spoiled as I type it, but... Ack. I need somebody to tell me this is no big deal. I'm going to be wearing white underwear today and watching it like a hawk.

It's hard not to feel like this is some kind of gotcha for feeling so blithe and unconcerned over the past few weeks as my first trimester symptoms subsided.

Tee -- Oh gosh, that is alarming, but don't assume the worst! For some reason my first thought hearing "bright red blood" is hemorrhoidal bleeding. Is that a possibility? The other possibility (and probably likely given you are getting over a yeast infection and just had sex) is cervical bleeding due to sensitive tissues on your cervix.

If it is any consolation, the miscarriages I had both started with pink/light brown tinged discharge - more like mucous plug than blood - that progressed into something period-like. That said, I wouldn't hesitate contacting your care provider immediately. It is not worth the anxiety of not knowing (the watching like a hawk thing can be really intense) and if it is something placental you (and they) would want to know asap because there may be prevention measures you can take.

For now just keep in mind that each pregnancy is different. Lots of women spot and go on to have normal, healthy pregnancies and babies. It is most common to spot after an OB appointment or sex (because the cervix is so sensitive). Also, if it is indeed cervical bleeding, you may continue to have some brownish discharge of the old blood, so don't be surprised if that happens.

Sending good thoughts your way!

Tee I'm so sorry you had to get such a stressful, icky shock! I'm obviously not a preofessional but I'm willing to bet it's the infection + intercourse that caused it. I've had experiences like that in the past and I know a lot of other women have too. I know if it were me my anxiety would be through the roof and I'd call my care provider but honestly they can't do much to reassure you unless they got you in to hear the heartbeat like...right now. I hope it's nothing and that you start feeling better. Hugs!!

Tee, I have also read that it's normal to bleed after infection and/or intercourse. But I would also make sure that it really did come from the cervix and not the rectum, as that is usually where the bright red comes from. And I would call your OB or midwife right away just to let them know.

Three kids and one on the way.

Tee: Odds are WAY in favor of it being from something other than miscarriage. I would let your provider know though (midwife? I can't remember what you use...), like Valerie said. Maybe they would let you pop in for a quick heartbeat listen just for comfort?

My first thought would be irritated cervix as well. Both my miscarriages started with brown/pink, consistent spotting that turned red and heavy after a day or two. I'd try not to worry, take it easy, and give your provider the heads up.

Both of my miscarriages also started with brown/light pink spotting.
