Healthy lady, no complaints with anything - touch wood.
Miscarried in December 2010 so this is my first time since my last pregnancy on testing. I am like clock work with my periods, 28 days every month, apart from when I lost my last child, as mentioned above, it did take me a couple of months to get back to normal again, which I have.

Thanks for writing to us.

I presume now your periods are overdue and you have already done a pregcolor card test to confirm your pregnancy.

Since you have had a miscarriage earlier, this time you need to be cautious. Go for an ultrasound scan at 7-8 weeks to detect the fetal heart. Start folic acid supplements early and avoid heavy work and intercourse in the first three months.

If you have any specific complaints then we can discuss them in the follow ups.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

Wishing you good health.
