I have been having these episodes since I was 4-5 yrs. I had my recent episode 2 months back in March.(which was after 5 yrs) I'm 24yrs and I'm 6 weeks pregnant with my first baby. Wht's scaring me is a week back I had an abdominal pain and was asked to cme tothe hospital asap. when i went there i had my urine specimen in which the report was normal. the Dr. said i need a Pelvic Exam and went a head with tht (which was the first time i had ever had a pelvic exam and it was very uncomfortable) she said everythng was normal no discharge or blood was found. After it was done I asked the Dr a couple of questions and she said she is gonna ask me to go for an ultrasound to c if it's an Ectopic pregnancy and also to hear the heartbeat. After she left the room i felt sooo sick i told my husband tht i think i'm gonna pass out i sat on the chair he held me hard so tht i couldnt hit on the floor and hurt myself. I passed out for 8-10 secs only. then hte nurse came in and called the Dr. the ambulance had cme and they took me to another hospital for my chk up. I'm so worried coz i was only 5 weeks pregnant and fainted i'm just praying tht my baby is doing well. I had my abdominal n vaginal ultrasound and thank god it was not Ectopic pregnancy. But they could not hear my baby's heartbeat as i was only 5 weeks and it was difficult to locate. Wht i'm also worried abt is i couldnt bare the pelvic test then how will i bare the labor pains.i'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo scared pls help me. pls mail me at
