10 weeks but I don't feel pregnant anymore

I had some nausea, exhaustion, painful boobs, difficulty sleeping (still do), gone off wine (!!) and have been feelig gernally a bit odd. But yesterday and today the symptoms are very much less. I am not as exhausted at all and only feel sick if I get hungry.

Do I need to worry? Should I ring EPAU?

Should i be delighted and stop whinging???

The symptoms may well come and go all through the pregnancy. Mine have and I am now 37 + 3.

Thanks, Lolajane2009. I am probably just being paranoid. My 1st scan is in a week's time so the wait is not too long now.

Totally normal. This happened to me too, and now six week old DS is gurgling in his baby gym! The placenta takes over round about now so you will feel better.

Sadly 'not feeling pregnant' isn't generally a good enough reason for EPU to scan you at this stage. When this kicked in for me, my midwife said as much, despite me having had a MMC at around 10 weeks with my previous pregnancy. I know it's easier said than done, but try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy until that 12 week scan. Good luck!

I had exactly the same at 9 weeks and shot off for a private scan - all was well, I was just paranoid. Good luck with your pregnancy x

Thanks, Hubbahubster and Katherine2008. I feel so much better today - hardly a sign of the pregnancy at all.... here's to hoping all's well. Only 7 days to my scan.

try to keep yourself busy - and look after yourself too x

The wait for that first scan is hard and seems to take forever, doesn't it. The first stage is so nerve-wracking.

My weird symptom was terrible cramping as if my period was about to start (I had terribly heavy periods pre-DS, they're a little better now!) and I ended up going for a private scan at about 7 weeks to reassure myself that all was well.

When he got bigger I bought a cheap doppler on ebay (which luckily worked!) and that kept me going every time I had a panic moment.

I found pregnancy hard on that level - it's difficult when you can't see the thing you're protecting so fiercely! It's definitely a skill to try to stay relaxed and rational. 7 days isn't too far away x

I was the same when pregnant with DD (now 16 months old!)

I don't think there is anything you can do other than try to relax (easier said than done I know) and hope the time passes quickly to your scan

Hope all goes well (I'm sure it will)

It's terribly difficult when symptoms (or absence of) can tell you nothing reliable at all. Had none with my son, now 3, literally nothing at all. Then on other occasions have had really strong symptoms but sadly miscarried.

It's very common for any early symptoms to fade around 10-12 weeks. Try not to worry and a week will pass before you know it. Good luck.

Thanks for the new replies! This is my second pregnancy - the result of my first is now nearly 7 and making a racket outside!!

I had forgotten how the symptoms can ease off. I suppose I am a bit more worried than I need to be as I am high risk at the ripe old age of 45. Roll on 6 Sept when I will be having my first scan............

randomimposter Tue 30-Aug-11 13:48:38

Oh even more good luck to you then! I am 43 and TTC#2 so will watch your updates with interest x

Alliwant, my first scan is on the 5 September and my symptoms are also starting to ease off now. I am definitely feeling much more like a functioning member of the human race; less sick and tired and generally just more more energetic.

I am also having little moments of doubt about it but am attempting to remain positive and look on it as a sign that I shall soon be floating around in white dresses looking blooming and goddess-like rather then lying on the sofa groaning and feeling sorry for myself.

Good luck for the scan, I am sure everything will be perfect grin

Don't worry. I had symptoms on and off and ds and dd are both driving me mad at this very moment!! smile

Alliwant - I am 11 weeks pregnant and am 41. My 12 week scan is on 6th Sept too. I have been having the same feelings you have - worried about symptoms going etc. I had two miscarriages before my daughter who is 5 this month, then another miscarriage in Jan this year. Had begun to give up hope as was beginning to think I was too old! The last few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster and I am desperately trying to stay positive. I bled at 6 weeks but they scanned me and all was ok (amazingly). I have to have hcg injections every week and am on aspirin. Fingers crossed for you on 6th! Will be thinking about you!
