11 weeks pregnant - feeling different. Please put my mind at rest!

Reached 11 weeks today and yesterday and today have been feeling like I have much more energy and just feeling more normal than I'm used to. Still have sore boobs and a few other minor symptoms but I'm now worrying that something has gone wrong. My major worry is that I'll get to the scan (in 10days time) and I will have had a missed miscarriage. Haven't had any bleeding or anything and I'm thinking in my saner moments that I'm feeling better because I've recovered from my cold and I'm not at work. Please can you all tell me how silly I'm being - I need some sense knocked into me! Am I right in thinking the chance of miscarriage at 11weeks would be less than earlier on? Also I think missed miscarriage is rare? And that most people tend to have some bleeding or spotting? Thank you all, sorry for my silliness!

The risk is less at 11 weeks than earlier, and continues to drop off as the pregnancy progresses. In both this pregnancy (currently 30 weeks) and with DS I felt a lot better by about 11 weeks - most of the early symptoms of sore boobs/lethargy/nausea had dropped off by then. Although they did make an unwelcome return.

I agree, by the start of the second trimester usually you will start to feel better and get some of your energy back. I havent had any symptoms of pregnancy at all this time as the same last time. Mind you I got a cold a few weeks back and it knocked me for six!

hey hun, same situation... only mine stopped at week 9 :-( i dont have my scan for another 9 days and im so worried... my boobs arent really that sore now either

my morning sickness promptly disappeared at 11 weeks in my first preg... and my scan wasnt until 14wks, so cue much paranoid worrying by me!! But all was totally fine. I think your placenta starts to take over at "around" 12 weeks (so could be slightly earlier, or later), I know its easy to say and hard to do, but pleeeeease try not to worry - am sure babe is fine, and you might be slightly further along than you think (i.e. 11.5wks, pushing 12wks, rather than bang on 11wks - the scan ALWAYS seems to change my due date & makes me a few days further on than I think I am, even though I've known when I ovulated all 3 pregs!!). GOod luck for your scan, am sure it'll be fab!

Had to reply to this as I felt exactly the same and everything was perfect at my 12 week scan... In fact I think my symptoms stopped earlier than yours at week 9 or 10. I think it's natural to feel worried before your scans. My 20 week scan is next week and I feel just as nervous for this one as I did at my 12 week. All will be fine at your scan... Enjoy it x

I'm 14 weeks today and just wanted to reassure that this happened to me too. (with both pregancies) It was like someone flicked a switch at 11 weeks, and I too was nervous about the scan, especially as one of my colleagues had a MMS last year. However everything was fine and after 3 weeks of feeling less and less sick and more and more energetic I'm finally beginining to enjoy it! Welcome to the wonderful world of being a mum... worry worry and worry!

(And I'm no medical proffessional, but I mentioned that I'd been worried about a MMS to the lady doing the scan and seh said she found maybe 1 or 2 a week, which is a very small number when you think how many scans she must do a day.)

my symptoms in my first trimester came and went a lot and when at 11 weeks my morning sickness left i was terrified and apologised to the sonographers as I thought i was wasting her time, especially as I had also had spotting. I am now just over 24 weeeks pregnant with a happy healthy little boy.

Thank you for posting.. i nearly booked in for a private scan last ngith because i was so worried!!

Me too – sobbed like an idiot and was convinced I'd had another MMC (had one last June), especially as TBH I didn't even have that many symptoms to start with. Am now 32 weeks and all is well. The worry doesn't go away, I'm afraid, but I was told by a midwife that it was completely normal to start to feel better 9-11 weeks as the placenta takes over. And stressing won't make a difference either way, so try not to!

A relief to read the same situation at week 10 today.

I'm beginning to feel better too. I'm 8 weeks and 4 days and my symptoms are subsiding. My boobs are heavy when I take off my bra and my mood swings are terrible too. But no nausea (much) and the cramps have gone.

I've been worried since I found out I was pregnant that I would have an ectopic or a MMC. I think my hormones have a lot to do with it though too.

Thank you to everyone for posting such positive comments - I read through them everytime I have a worry and they always make me feel better! 8 days until scan!!!

It's funny, I'm almost 11 weeks and I felt exactly the same this morning, I woke up and didn't feel as sick, didn't have the horrid heartburn and felt like I'd actually slept for the first time in weeks and my first thought was, oh my god, I hope everything is ok! I think 11 weeks is a funny time because for some people it's when the symptoms lessen or change but it's before you're showing properly or can feel what's going on, so it's making me really uncertain. I'm sure everything will be fine for both of us, and in a funny way, it's reassuring to know that other people feel the same way and it's not just me being silly!

I agree zambooloo! it makes me feel better hearing the same from other people... i guess in 6 more sleeps i will know for sure (no that im counting lol)

And i guess i am just very lucky that i only had nausea and sore boobs for 2 weeks! I am still tired and have wind, but i can cope with them!! lol
