The last time I was pregnant and had a miscarrage I woke up in the middle of the night sssoooo thirsty and then before I went back to bed I always had to use the restroom. Is that normal, or anyone else have that. I only ask because I NEVER get up in the middle of the night, I sleep right through, but last week once again I was up every night thirsty and had to use the restroom again last night

if you were pregnant how far would u be and have u taken a pregnancy test yet??

 

?? - October 27

Only about a month and no no pg test

Yes peeing in the night is a sign but not the best one to go with. Do you have any other symptoms? Like Candis said try taking a pregnancy test. Good Luck

In my opinion I am not taking some of these as signs, I have seen from here that they could be signs and as much as I would like for them to be I guess I don't want to get my hopes up. I have a loss of appet_te, like I have read other people on here do. I am not naucious or sick from smells I am just not hungry and nothing sounds good, although I will sit down and eat it is just bland to me. I have had mentral like symptoms but I feel that they have come to soon, much sooner than they usually come.

To make matters worse I saw that my step daughter has chickenpox last night when she got out of the shower. I do not know if I am pg, it is to early in my opinion to take a test and now I am scared that if I am, which I truly want, that me being exposed can hurt the baby

When is your period due to come? The first time I was pregnant the only symptoms I had were sore b___sts and loss of appet_te. I can understand not wanting to get your hopes up, I am right now in the same situation. And with the chicken pox thing, have you had chicken pox? I would recommend starting pre natal vitamins just incase you are. I have all my medical books here I will look real quick to see what risks chicken pox has on a pregnant woman and I will write back. Good Luck NT

Thanks NT. My period is due to start anywhere from now until a week from now. Yes I have had chickpox as a child so I should be ok, but I heard that you can still catch the virus and be a carrier, and being pg that could have birth deffects on the baby. I have not taken a test yet because I am convinced that it is to early and that my signs are not "good enough" ones. I have NO signs but periodic cramping, absolutely no appet_te but then when I do get hungry I am STARVING but still nothing sounds good enough to eat. I have only had very few naucious waves come over me and they are very quick. I am VERY bad with keeping my body hydrated, I can sit here at my desk all day and not drink a thing which is really bad so I don't use the restroom all that much, anything I do drink goes RIGHT through me, which I would a__sume is normal even not being pg.

Also, I am starting to have cold like symptoms. . .this may very well be just that, a cold, but all of these are hitting at once.

Actually fluids going right through you is a sign of pregnancy, although obviously it does not only happen in pregnant women. About the chicken pox, in all the reading I have done it says that by already having chicken pox as a child you have built up enough antibodies to protect you and your baby. From what I have read there is no possible way for it to harm either of you. Good Luck and write back with anymore questions. I'll try to answer anything I can and if I can't, there are other very intelligent women on this site who should be able to help. I wish you knew how much I can understand exactly what you mean by not wanting to get your hopes up. I hate this waiting period. Try taking a test this weekend, but remember false negatives happen a lot more often than false positives. Wishing you all the best. NT

Once you have had the Chicken Pox, you cannot get it again. Your body created antibodies when you have a virus and if that virus were to present itself to you again, your body acitvates the antibodies to destroy the virus. Your body cannot catch the same strain of virus twice. There is an adult variation of the chicken pox (shingles) which you can get even if you have been exposed to the CP.

Will the adult virus, if obtained harm a baby in womb?

 

E - October 27

If you have the CP as an adult, it can absolutely harm the fetus. The mother can become gravely ill due to the decreased immune function that our systems undergo. If you have been exposed and are exposed again, there is no risk to your baby as your antibodies will kill the virus and you will not get the CP again.

Have you had the CP?

 

E - October 27

Okay, I read that you have. There is nothing for you to worry about. You can be in a room full of sick, infected kids and nothing will happen. Baby will be fine.

 

?? - October 27

Ok thanks E and NT that makes me feel allot better. Now if I find that I am pg then I have nothing to worry about, just keeping my fingers crossed that I am!

We wish you success!!
