Oh honey, what a difficult situation, and one I have been in more then once. I am so sorry. I will be honest with you. An ultrasound with a pregnancy dating 8 weeks should show a heartbeat. Even one at 6 weeks should with today's ultrasounds. So honestly, this does sound like it may be a missed miscarriage. The flip side of this is that you sho...

The others give you great advice. Im going to be honest, you have to work through this. The absolute best thing you can do for your daughter is to have a healthy co parenting relationship with her mother. Please don't put down her mother and step father to her. I promise you that will backfire on you. Focus instead on creating and maintaining a str...

Any time you have unprotected sex pregnancy is possible. Wait until your period would normally be due, and if no sign of it, take a home pregnancy test. All the best to you.

There are a lot of theories, but for the most part, there isn't much you can do. Baby will come when he/she is ready. Any day now, so hang in there!!

13 weeks is pretty early. I didn't find out by ultrasound until 20 weeks or so. Hang in there, you will know soon enough. Congrats on your pregnancy.

I know yoru ready to get things moving. The reality is there is nothing you can really do to speed things up. Labor is a product of hormones, and without medical intervention, baby will usually not come until he/she is good and ready. You are so close now. Hang in there, and it will happen before you know it. Your body has already begun the process, it w...
