I'm about 5 weeks now. Initially I had some implantation cramping - that lasted for a few weeks but seems to have eased off in the past couple of days.
My boobs are a bit sore and my tummy's a little bit bloated but apart from that I don't really have any other symptoms (apart from being a complete cow to DP for no reason!).
It sounds really stupid but now that the initial excitement of BFP has worn off and the cramping has died down, I don't feel pregnant really.
And I've started having horrible dreams about miscarrying. I'm terrified that it's my sub conscious telling me the baby has died and now I'm having all sorts of paranoid thoughts about getting to the 12 week scan and fining I've had a mmc or something.
Is it normal to not really feel very much in the early stages? And if I had a mmc would I know?
I don't know how I can possibly live with being this neurotic for another 8 months!
I felt all of what you are feeling, and was certain I didn't have a baby anymore. I felt guilty when people around me that knew I was pregnant were talking all excitedly about it because I was certain I was going to have to disappoint them after my scan.
On the way to the scan me and dp (who I had convinced that we didn't have a baby anymore) were certain we were just on our way to find out the bad news.
Imagine my shock when there was a little baba wriggling around on the scan!!! And now I'm preparing for my 20 weeks scan in less than 4 weeks time!
Absolutely normal! I panicked on days I didn't feel nauseous that something had happened to the baby. Must have done about 6 pregnancy tests before my 12 week scan just to check I was still pregnant
The first but is hard, it gets much easier to stop worrying once you get a bit of a bump and even easier once the kicking starts Although you'll still have episodes of irrational panic! Congratulations BTW!
When I was pg with my beautiful dd1 (now 4yo), I was convinced that the 4 pg tests I did were all wrong, as I had zero symptoms. The 12-week scan showed a perfect tiny baby. I didn't believe it till I saw, and we'd been TTC for 9 months!
