Hi. To cut a long story short i have found out that i am 5 weeks pregnant, although my stomach is massive already i have had to go out today & buy maternity clothes. Here is my dilema my dh & i have been trying for a year and for the past 2 periods they have been very different, much shorter, less bleeding & less pain, they were more like spotting, but at the time i thought nothing of it but now i am wondering if i could be further along than i am?(as i have heard that you can still have periods) has this happened to any other ladies. Please can you respond.

It is entirely possible.Your last period was weird that would make you 9 weeks and the one before would make you 13 weeks. Your abdomen starts protruding around 8 weeks. Did you take a hpt after each period? Perhaps you ovulated early and are 6 weeks going on seven? Anyway, They will be able to tell you at your first visit.Have them due an Ultrasound. Good luck.

Sometimes you can seem "bigger" than what you are supposed to be if it isn't your first pregnancy. I know with my 3rd pregnancy by the 5th or 6th week my normal clothes were really tight. I was in maternity clothes by 10 weeks. By the time I was nine months I looked like I was carrying 2 or 3 babies instead of one. It is a possibility too that you may be carrying more than 1 baby. As long as your feet, hands and face aren't really swollen (that could be a sign of a serious problem).... then I would just wait until your first ultrasound, or if you are really worried tell your ob/gyn at your next visit just to be safe. I hope everything goes well, and congrats on the pregnancy.

The only way to tell how pregnant you are is to have an ultra sound. Do you have an appt set w/your Dr?


Jolleen - April 18

i have to get my medical card before i can make an appt.


TO:Jolleen - April 18

I don't know which state/ country you are in, but I know in Pennsylvania you can see the doctor and the medical will go back 3 months from the date of your application.
