No symptoms - worried

Hi Ladies

I don't know whether I'm over worrying or worrying about nothing, but I'd love to get your thoughts. I'm 8 weeks pregnant and over the last few weeks I have been experiencing the usual first trimester pregnancy symptoms... tiredness, sore boobs, odd implantation cramping etc... but from Tues/weds this week all that has stopped. I no longer feel tired, my boobs don't feel sore any more and I haven't had any of the cramping feelings I have been having. Do you think it's time to worry?? I know you're always told to seek help if you have severe pain or bleeding, so it feels weird to say, I'm worried because I feel fine!

It's probably fine - the textbook 12 week cutoff point for morning sickness and other symptoms isn't the same for everyone. Some people never feel any symptoms at all.

I had quite bad morning sickness with my first pregnancy which all stopped a bit early and, like you, I thought something must be wrong. But it was just my placenta taking over and my body getting used to being pregnant.

Fingers crossed for you.

Thanks AllNew, that's exactly what my OH was saying earlier and I suppose I should just try and relax, but it's such a disconcerting feeling. We're paying to have an 8 week scan this week... it can't come round soon enough! x

don't worry. Lots of people have no symptoms and are fine.. also it might be the calm before the storm... it might still appear. if not, just be thankful.

Other than morning sickness I found there seemed to be long periods of no symptoms which does get worrying. Once you have yr 12 week scan you will feel fine for week or so and then it starts again with lack of symptoms, feeling that yr body is not changing etc. The MW app at 16 weeks heps where you can hear heartbeat but it is very fustrating inbetween. am sure you will be fine. By the time you get to about 20 an feel movement it is easier to relax x

im exactly the same, i had pains for a few weeks, slight nausea (no actual sickness), sore boobs, that lasted for about 2 weeks, and around 8 week it all stopped! Not even any sore boobs!

Cue major panic! paranoid about a missed miscarriage... im 12+5 and have my scan on wednesday so i have everything crossed

Hi ladies... thank you so much for your reassurances, it would appear I was worrying about nothing. I've managed to get in for a private scan this morning and everything is ok. I've seen and heard the heartbeat beat, the relief was fantastic and as I'm sure you can imagine, there were lots of tears (happy ones!).

Kri5ty, I'll keep fingers and toes crossed for you, but hopefully my story from this morning will reassure you. Seems like some of us are very lucky to lose our symptoms earlier than others. xx

Not to copy, but I also feel un pregnant. Tired and crappy, but not sick or achy, so automatically have begun thinking that I might not be pregnant anymore. I know I am always pessimistic, but can't wait til I have some kind of certainty, hopefully thurs.
