Hi, I'm new to this website and new to pregnancy. Right not I am 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I went to the ER due to cramps and bleeding. They did a sonogram and found a heartbeat, but another nurse said I had a miscarriage. But the thing is i'm still having symptoms, belly has grown a little, we found a heartbeat, and i still feel pregnant. I went for a second option and they said I was still pregnant. I've been having more symptoms and feelings such as pressure/uncomfortable feeling in lower abdomen, and feeling bubbles that seem like gas but never release as gas. (sorry for details). But could someone please help me out with whats going on, I really need opinions and advice.

PS: I'm a YOUNG mom, (16) but my baby is a blessing/gift. The baby's father died 3 days before I found out I was pregnant. So can someone PLEASE help me!! I'm kinda worried.

Sounds like the nurse was an idiot if a heartbeat is still there and you have not um "expelled" the baby.
Okay so this is what you are feeling : as babe grows and take up more space in your uterus , all your organs shift back and up to provide room. It make be gas that is that is now trapped because your intestinal track is pushing against you spine making you gassy and ( I'm sorry, soon to be constipated frequently)
As long as you get a heart beat you are pregnant. The cramps you feel are normal , in fact, unless you find yourself bleeding profusely... Every twinge , cramp, and pain is normal . It's time for and ultra sound isn't it?

I hope you have a strong support system through this and when babe is born , you are going to need it.

Every pregnancy is different. Do you have an OB/GYN yet? This is extremely important to have. Are you taking your vitamins everyday?

Make sure you rest. If there is a heartbeat then you are still pregnant.

I was 15 when I first found out I was pregnant with my first. It can be scary but ask away and I will answer everything I can

Welcome!

It sounds like you're still pregnant to me, but could you have miscarried a twin?  Something to ask the doctor about at your next appointment.

Try not to worry or stress out about every little feeling. 

I'm sorry about the loss of your little one's father.

I'm sorry your going through all this. Hugs. Your body is going to change more than it has but its for a good reason. Everybody's body is different so we experience different things than others might. My advice is to have a strong support system its better to share this journey with the people that care about you. Your loved one may not be here because of his unfortunate passing but he is watching over you. Read the book what to expect when expecting. It has good book. Hugs. Your not alone.

Drink water like you are dying of thirst everyday, it prevents stretch marks and is good to hydrate the babe and yourself. ( those veins are there until after birth. Remember, being pregnant is the one time in your life you don't have to be vain...... Messes with your body however it wants.

Oh no sorry about your baby's Father, that is horrrible! Alot of women will bleed during pregnany and have cramping too. As long as your not passing any "clots" then you should be fine. I bled with both of my boys and they were always fine. If they told you that there is a heartbeat than baby is fine. congrats on pregnancy!

Find an OBGYN... this is so important and go to your regular checkups. Your body is preparing for all the changes to come. This is most likely what is causing your discomfort. As long as you are not bleeding and you still have a heartbeat you are good.

 No one can tell you what is going on but we can tell you to take your vitamins, don't get dehydrated and get plenty of rest.  Good luck.
