Do you Google your symptoms while pregnant or while TTC? Does it worry you more or make you feel better?

I really try not to talk to Dr. Google, but there are some times when I just can't help it! With pregnancy though, I usually just call my midwife's office - it takes a little longer to get them on the phone than to Google, but at least I know I can believe them.

It is really hard to not be able to do anything but sit and wait... did he find anything good or bad? Did it ease your mind?

How are you feeling today? Is the cramping/bleeding still there?

He found stuff like the heavier bleeding could be from the vaginal ultrasound and pelvic exam. That ultrasound was not to comfy lol. And that we may not be as far along as we thought. So it could be implantaion bleeding. That really eased my mind. Since yesterday, I feel like I'm pregnant. And when I say that, I feel like my belly is starting to expand. Pants around the waist are a little snug lol. And I feel what I call cramping all around my lower belly. The bleeding seems to be a bit heavy, like a light period, in the morning, but then subsides during the day. And I was really nauseous this morning! Wow I have never experienced that! So everyday I feel better and better. I just want this to be a healthy baby and a safe 9 months! I've been crying since Monday I was so upset that I thought I could be on the verge of a miscarriage....but today I think I only cried once when I had to talk to my work about what's going on. Other than that, my butt is on the couch just trying to relax! Thank you for all your kind words and concern! I feel like I got a new little family here

I'm not sure if my other post was recieved. So I'll just post again lol. My boyfriend found information like the heavier bleeding from yesterday and Monday afternoon could have been from the vaginal ultrasound and pelvic exam. That wasn't comfy at all lol. And that we may not be as far along as we thought. So this bleeding may be implantation bleeding. I still have a little bit of cramping all around my belly. I read that, that could be the uterus stretching I also have a lot of bubbles and gurggles in my tummy lol. I bleed a little bit heavier, like a light period, at night but during the day it subsides. Since yester day I've felt more pregnant. And by that I mean I feel like my tummy is expanding. My pants are a little snug around the waist And with the nausea this morning, it's like I feel like things are going to be ok. Just with the doctor giving me the posibilities of a spontaneous miscarriage has sent me crying for two days! But thanks to family and you guys, I feel more and more at ease It's like I have a new family here

I'm glad that some of the information made you feel more at ease! That's one of the dangers of Dr. Google - sometimes it goes the other way and you feel even MORE worried. I hope you see some good hCG levels today! Feeling pregnant is a good sign, and so is the nausea!

I'm glad you are feeling better and not crying as much! Being calm and trying to distract yourself from the worries can go a long way in helping you feel more in control of the situation. Not that it can change it for one way or the other, but I think it will definitely help you during this time of waiting.

Google is sometimes dangerous in pregnancy, but I have done it.

I am guilty of using Mr. Google. It can be very scary though at times. I got myself all worked up thinking I may have a MC because I do not have morning sickness. It can be helpful but not at the same time. The thing is, Google has SOOO many different answers that whatever your question is, the answer could go in a million different directions so it's like, what do you believe?
