I have recently heard some frightening stories about miscarriages occurring in the fourth or fifth month. I thought my miscarriage worries were over after 12 weeks! I’ve read that sometimes the initial symptoms are very subtle, just a slight pressure and a slightly heavier discharge. Well… how slight? I’m in my seventeenth week, and my abdomen sometimes feels heavy. I find myself wanting to hold it up. Is this just a normal symptom of pregnancy?
