Dax is going to be a big brother! I'm about 6 weeks, but I've known for almost 3 weeks. I'm just past the point when I miscarried last time, and I'm feeling a little anxious and in need of some good thoughts.
I spent yesterday morning at the ER with abdominal/pelvic pain and vomiting, but they did an ultrasound and the baby is doing fine. We were worried about either an ectopic pregnancy or my appendix, but even though I still have some pain, it is getting better and I'll follow up with my regular doctor tomorrow.
The ultrasound did show that there was fluid behind my uterus; does anyone know if that causes pain?

Hey pretty mama! Congratulations. I hope you get better ASAP. I am assuming fluid will go away on its own or be dwarfed by growing baby? I am keeping you in my thoughts. When you do end up telling Dax, let us know what he thinks of becoming a big brother!

Thanks again everyone! I think my fever finally broke and I have an appopintment today with the OB so hopefully I'll get clarification on the fluid. Dr. Google suggests that it could be from a burst cyst.

Well, the doctor just kind of shrugged it all off as normal/okay. I guess I'm alright with that because I am getting better but I was hoping for an answer (I should know better by now, but I'm just so anylitical!).
I still do think that a cyst burst; it seems like something sudden would have had to happen, not just the normal stretching she mentioned, but eh, what do I know! Looks like I am in for some serious round ligament pain this time.
I go back in a week for my first normally-scheduled appointment and they'll do another ultrasound then just to check up on everything.
