I am 20 years old and I became pregnant last Febuary and was due November 11 06′ I was not on a strict diet before getting pregnant, there for we lost the baby due to heart faliure, when I was 4 1/2 months along. The second I found out I did everything I could to be as healthy as I could be for the baby. My best advice to you that other doctors ect. have given me is to be sure to be on a your diet and your levels are under control, and when you are pregnant your levels do jump around alot due to all of the changes in your body. So blood test and more than regular doctor apt. are needed., nDanielle
