First Pregnancy: Need Advice

(5 Posts)

Hello everyone !!
I am about 9 weeks along, and my symptoms consists of being hungry all the time even waking up at night, having troubles sleeping, my breast are a bit sore and definitely grew, I feel moody, and here and there I am queasy.
About 4 years ago I had a miscarriage, and honestly since then I have been worried I will get another one. I have a doctors appointment on Dec. 5. I don't know a lot of people who have had children that could give me good advice, I keep searching different things and I am just extremely worried I could have a missed miscarriage or something like that. I barely ever get nauseous, but I also have been a little scattered brain and tired too!. If anyone could give me advice or just assure me that my pregnancy is going smoothly I would appreciate it. Thank you ! smile

Try to relax - pregnancy is different with everyone.

I had nausea for 3 weeks only (weeks 6-9) and the other symptoms you have - sore boobs, hunger, tiredness - I'm now 35 weeks and so far all gone well! I expected the whole vomiting experience but I haven't been sick once during pregnancy yet so was quite worried that something would go wrong but nothing did. Try to enjoy it (easier said than done) and count yourself lucky that you're not being sick 5-6 times a day. Hopefully you'll have a scan date soon and you'll get to see your little one's heartbeat and be reassured.

When my symptoms went at 9 weeks I did book a private scan (paid about £60) for reassurance - perhaps if you can afford that, it could put your mind at ease?

Thank you so much that definitely eased my nerves. My scan date is the 5 of December, I juts hate waiting. I read into things way to much. I definitely will take it easy. I appreciate your advice.

That's not too long to wait (it will feel like a lifetime to you - but it really isn't too bad) and as I said, we all deal with the pregnancy hormones differently so hopefully you'll be one of the lucky ones, like I was. Have a brew and cake and take it easy

I think it all sounds fine, OP. Yes, missed miscarriages do happen, but they are quite rare and there aren't really any signs for most people - just because you don't have very extreme symptoms doesn't mean at all that anything is wrong. I had quite bad nausea until about week 24 with my first pregnancy. Now at week 15 with my second and the nausea seems to have pretty much stopped. My mum never really had any pregnancy symptoms at all. We're all different, but many of us even have pregnancies that are very different from each other! The 5th December will come around soon.
