Is there danger ?

I took a pregnancy test & it was positive about 2 week ago but my last period was 2 months ago.  I'm still waiting on blood test to confirm my pregnancy. Can my baby be in danger because of all this waiting?

Hi!
Congratulations!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that unless you are engaging in high risk behaviors such as drinking or using illegal drugs, the waiting period shouldn't make any difference.  There is a lot of waiting involved in pregnancy--waiting for the test, waiting for the first appointment, waiting for the ultrasound, etc.  May as well get used to it!
Best Wishes!

Not really unless you've been using drugs and alcohol since you didn't know.

Always possibility of miscarriage but waiting would not make a difference , they happen because of nature and generally not preventable anyways if it is goin to happen its goin to happen unless ilits a cervical problem or something else , bit if its unhealthy pregnancy or genetic cant really stop it, so dOnt worry lady , odds are u n baby will be fine , take care of urself tho prenatal vitamin with 1 mg folic acid they all have it i believe n eat best u can etc is all u can do right now ; )
