I'll also just add that one of the benefits of academia is the flexibility. I had my first when I was a few years pre-tenure and I loved that we could stagger our schedules (my husband isn't an...

I haven't had it checked. Or at least not recently. My midwives are pretty hands off. We're pretty sure the loss was just a chromosomal abnormality. I've had two totally normal pregnancies, so...

Glad to see so many mamas here!

For prenatals I'm taking Rainbow Lite and then Nordic Naturals for omega 3, though I may have to go to gummis until the morning sickness subsides. I'm feeling...

Hi Zjande! I would keep testing. Since you're just getting your cycle back, ovulation can be very very unpredictable and you can definitely ovulate during or right after your period. Or, like you...

Bleeding gums is very common. Four weeks is a little early, I would think, but it's one of the most common pregnancy symptoms. You should not lose teeth during pregnancy though. With proper dental...

Like someone else said, at your age the genetic tests are blood tests and do not require an amnio. There's no risk to the baby at all. That being said, if you wouldn't change the course of the...

I always get first trimester diarrhea. It happens no matter what my diet. I just try to deal with it as best I can. Taking prenatals with iron can help firm it up a bit, but it doesn't fully go...
