I have a tilted uterus and started showing very early (around 15 weeks and by 12 weeks with my second pregnancy).

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've had Rhogam now with two kids and a miscarriage. No issues at all. While there's some evidence that the 28 week shot may not do much to reduce risk (it protects against silent bleeds, which...

I'm very sorry you're going through this. I just have one question: did you read the tests within the recommended period of time? Many tests have evap lines that do look a lot like a positive. If...
