i am hoping this is hormonal and emotional upset making me worry about this. i have a scan on wednesday morning....

Symptoms settling or even stopping completely is totally normal. Search 'symptoms' or similar and you'll find lots of anecdotal evidence. Mine stopped almost overnight at seven weeks, then crept in again, then faded...! The old adage that no two pregnancies are the same is clear to see in this forum. The trouble is the text books present various scenarios, then when symptoms etc. don't match people panic!

Good luck on Weds!

For me I think unless people asked how I was feeling sometimes I would totally forget all together in the early weeks until I was feeling like crap again!

Good luck Wednesday

I had the same with my loss but I also lost everything over night for 2 weeks I just knew. This time I had a loss of symptoms but my first early scan showed everything was fine. I lost symptoms on and off since and felt normal but symptoms just suddenly appear but different. Now I have morning sickness and slightly tender boobs. I have my second early viability scan in the morning. I would be very surprised to have a problem due to returning symptoms but I am always so scared of it happening to me for a third time

It's natural to worry but symptoms do come and go. Is this your first?

I had the same worry a few weeks ago. I had been feeling thoroughly awful until about 7 weeks then all of a sudden I felt (relatively) normal. I just had my 12 week scan today and all is well. As has been said, no two pregnancies are the same and symptoms come and go at different times. I now feel a little sick in the mornings and still feel tired in the evening but not as rotten as I did.

thank you ladies.
no this isn't my first, but i was SO poorly with her from start to finish, that i guess i expected to be a little bit consistently ill with this one. i have had a little very dark old spotting this time too (for about 10 days or so, but has now stopped), which i haven't had in the past, despite having several miscarriages but they were very obviously so. i think i am just worrying because of the combination of all the above, worrying could be a symptom <hopeful emoticongrin> as that is quite unlike me

JimmyChoo17 Mon 29-Nov-10 20:17:25

I had some spotting too but was brown and the emu said w fine as it wasn't red. I don't want to wish the night away as I feel so god damn awful in the day but want my scan!

broccolitrees Mon 29-Nov-10 20:23:14

i hear ya jimmy
got to get through tomorrow then scan first thing weds

JimmyChoo17 Mon 29-Nov-10 20:31:38

Not long now for either of us! Let us know how you get on yeah? I tell u what the only way to feel better is eat. I'll be the size of a house I even eat healthy but even then. U can over eat....but the only thing that makes me feel less ready salted crisps!!!! Why?!!! Going to buy some of them salt and shake ones and not add the salt. They are a last resort but they do the trick!

broccolitrees Mon 29-Nov-10 20:51:02

it's hula hoops for me jimmy
i do wonder if that might be why i am less sick this time because i am eating like i don't know whatgrin i do feel a bit sick this time of night after my tea. dh has gone out for ice cream but if i'm honest, i don't really fancy it
hope tomorrow goes ok,

JimmyChoo17 Mon 29-Nov-10 20:57:31

mmmmmmm nom nom nom ready salted hula hoops!!!

I'll probably post on here 2moro how it went am keeping everything crossed! There has to be a good reason for feeling this rubbish!

rudbekia Mon 29-Nov-10 21:37:03

not unusual or anything to worry about. it was a complete shock after feeling like death for the best part of 7 wks to hit 14wks and actually want to eat! then i had loads of energy, felt great and just got on with life pretty much as i had before...

that was until now (37 wks) and i've got every late pregnancy symptom going - elephant feet, carpal tunnel in my hands, horrible, horrible heartburn, rubbish sleep, ratty as hell...sigh..feeling sorry for the husband. i think he's wondering where his wife's gone grin

JimmyChoo17 Tue 30-Nov-10 17:49:32

Woo hoo!!!!!! I have a healthy little bean growing away and I am a day ahead of what I guessed! My hospital will not show the screen so I didn't get to see the heart beat but they did and I got a pic of my bean

Am so happy!!

Good luck tomorrow Broccoli let me know how u get on!

I can not fully relax but I feel loads better to know that how I have been feeling these past 2 weeks is normal. When I don't feel sick I feel normal and not pregnant so I won't feel as panicked now.....don't quote me on that mind!!

tlise Tue 30-Nov-10 19:29:32

yep, I have hardly had any other than tiredness and sore boobs

broccolitrees Wed 01-Dec-10 11:22:12

hey jimmychoo that's great. i posted a thread for you asking how you'd got on but i think it got lost, then i found your bump thread.

had my scan, and it's all over for me. Again sad

JimmyChoo17 Wed 01-Dec-10 20:04:25

Oh broccoli I am so so sorry. I was thinking of u today. How are u feeling? Its so horrid I know and I hate people telling me all the cliches so I won't do that. Have u lost before?

Did they say u were clear?

I'm so sorry hon, big hugs xxx

broccolitrees Wed 01-Dec-10 20:11:11

no not clear yet, still have to wait for that little joy. evidence of pregnancy but no heartbeatsad
have lost several.
still have morning sickness, which is truly devastating as it's a constant reminder and all for nothingsad

JimmyChoo17 Wed 01-Dec-10 20:25:07

Oh babe how awful. How far along were u again?

did they offer D&c? It never gets easier does it hon. I'm so sorry, it's so heartbreaking. X

broccolitrees Wed 01-Dec-10 20:56:35

7 weeks but the corpuscle is still visible which is why i still feel pregnant apparently. i felt sick from very early on, but i suppose it did ease off a bit monday when i posted, that said i was retching again this morningsad
no i haven't been offered a d&c yet, i have to have another blood test on friday to check that hcg is going down, i guess if it is, it's just a waiting game and then if still nothing happens they will treat medically/surgically.
i just feel like we waited so long to get this far again and really thought that no bleeding (aside from the light dark spotting i had had, which can even be normal in early pregnancy) and morning sickness was a positive sign.
i know that i am truly blessed with dd (who didn't have the easiest start either, she was prem because i had pre-eclampsia really badly) and thank God for her, just wish she could have the baby brother or sister she so desperately wants

JimmyChoo17 Thu 02-Dec-10 18:23:29

Oh hon it's awful waiting. Early peg must be the worst time ever. I hope u r coping ok.

I have had everything u have had ! Panic mode again! I have felt human for most of today which sparked panic. I'm sure pregnancy was taught to us in school like it was easy....u shag...u fall pregnant regardless of the time of the month...9months later out pops a baby. ...I think they lied

How ware u feeling today? Xx

broccolitrees Thu 02-Dec-10 20:36:10

haha what they taught in school made me laughgrin thanks. we were told not to let that thing anywhere near us or there would be babies ever! who knew?!
i suppose it does happen for some people just like thathmm

JimmyChoo17 Sat 04-Dec-10 10:00:57

Our sex Ed was taught by a's a wonder I didn't think wd40 was a sex lube ha ha.

Would love to have had a straightforward pregnancy. I met my bestest mate on holiday a few years ago and the only reason she went away was due to having a miscarriage. so we try and think things always happen for a reason and I have no idea what we'd do without each other now! Luckily we don't live far from each other and when I then thru my losses she was there for me. She now has 2 healthy And very loud kiddies!

not sure what positive came out of my losses this year....only that when I do have a healthy little bundle I will be grateful so have got there finally! Jeez I'm welling up.

hope you are doing ok Brocolli x x x x
