Anyone just not feel pregnant once the sickness has passed?

I'm 15 weeks and am trying to just relax now we've had a good scan and blood results back, but I don't feel pregnant any more confused Any bump I had seems to have shrunk to nothing and I've lost a couple of pounds, I'd only put on 4 to begin with. Now I'm worrying. Would it be massively timewasting to try and get to a doctor just for reassurance? Even a quick listen with a doppler would be enough. I just feel a bit off I suppose, after so much sickness I have nothing to actually show I am in fact pregnant. By this stage with both my others I was huge.

I had a quiet period around 15-17 weeks, with no sickness and less bloat. If you're worried maybe try ringing the midwife to see if she can give reassurance/fit you in?

I felt exactly the same, and after a string of miscarriages, I was extra neurotic. I bought myself a cheapie doppler off Ebay, cost me less than £15, it arrived a day later and completely put my mind at ease to hear the little heart chugging away.

I'm now 22 weeks and can feel little one wriggling, but the doppler definitely helped me through the days after the sickness passing, and before bump appeared.

Good luck xx

Yes I had that too - it is freaky and the week-by-week info that I looked at online doesn't seem to mention it, but it is normal apparently! Your earlier bump was probably a bit to do with bloating etc.

That's good to hear, I'm not seeing my midwife for another 2 weeks but she is lovely so I might see if she can pop in quickly after the weekend. It seems silly to worry but I've had 2 close family friends have late miscarriages in the last few months and it's making me more aware of all that can go wrong sad

Sounds pretty normal to me. smile I thought after the first 12 weeks I'd be worry free but apparently it doesnt seem to work that way!

I dont think putting your mind at rest is ever time wasting and you have good reason, stress is bad for you both so id go and get looked at smile

I never had any sickness and was syptom free for most of my 3 pregnancies, even with twins. I had indigestion for the first few weeks and that was it, even the GP was surprised when I was not throwing up with the twins, tis very normal to be very sick with multiples, all turned out okay. I know have an 1 yo, 6 yo twins and a 4yo.

Yep, the horrid phony pregnancy stage. After 6 consecutive losses before no. 2 stuck, I hated most of my second trimester this time because I had no way of knowing if everything was okay, esp as you see the midwife so rarely at that stage.
