Re: Extreme fatigue

Thanks to you all. It's good to know that the fatigue is likely just part of the process. If these symptoms are still concerning me in a few days, I will call my doctor. I'm afraid that if it's...

Re: I don't know what feels normal anymore.... don't understand my body

Thanks for the kind words and support. I am glad I'm not the only one who can't figure out what's going on with their body.

Emotionally, I think I'm feeling kind of numb right now and I'm not sure...

Re: Lost baby :(

Re: Lost baby :(

I believe I am negative and the original medical plan was to confirm my blood type and have me come in for a shot. However, now the priority is confirming whether the pregnancy is ectopic. If not,...

No shopping yet but I've been researching :). I've decided on cloth diapers and "neutral" colors.

I found a Time article (http://healthland.time.com/2013/01/10/could-a-blood-based-test-replace-amniocentesis/) about this testing. It seems legit but given how few women they've tested it on, I...

Re: Pregnancy books?

I just bought the "Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy" and I like it a lot. It has all the basic medical/health information that I've been searching the web for all in one place.
