11 weeks pregnant but symptoms have vanished!

I'm 11 weeks pregnant with my first baby and have struggled grasp the concept since the start... The pregnancy was totally unplanned, a total shock as we were using protection. We found out at 6 weeks (which was 4 weeks before we were due to get married) and to begin with I was a state. That said, now my husband (of one week!) and I have grown accustomed to the idea, although we're daunted we are so excited to be having a son or daughter and have grown quite attached to him or her already smile

I have my dating scan next Thursday but I am so, so terrified that nothing is going to show up. To begin with I had terrible morning sickness, sore boobs and tiredness but my symptoms have all but vanished. I am not showing anything at all and I am worried that whole thing might never really have developed in the first place. I know it sounds ridiculous but it has actually been keeping me up at night, especially as we took the opportunity to tell a lot of our close friends and family from Holland at our wedding when I was 10 weeks.

Is it normal for symptoms to disappear suddenly before the end of the first trimester? I've not had any bleeding but haven't felt anything for over a week sad I've never wanted to feel sick so badly! I'm a massive worrier by nature, I suppose I just need some reassurance from people who have been there and know more than me!

My baby is 3 months old. My symptoms went away around 9 weeks and never returned so I wouldnt worry they can come and go at any point its normal for them to start leaving from typically 12 weeks onwards but as I said mines went before.

So dont worry smile

Hi Kakey,

I'm 12+4 and my symptoms (nausea, painful boobs) definitely decreased a lot at 11 weeks. As the other poster said it is normal and to do with the placenta taking over hormone production (I think - someone wise correct me if I'm wrong. I saw a happy wiggly baby at my dating scan so am starting to relax a bit about the change in symptoms.

I'd encourage you to come and join us on the June AN bus if you haven't already. There are lots of lovely ladies there sharing the concerns and tips of the journey together.

I'm only 9 weeks pg with twins and I'm not having any symptoms at all. I felt really sick between 4 weeks and 7. I went for an early scan and 2 strong heartbeats. So, I think everyone's different smile

I'm 8 weeks and I started having terrible morning sickness about a week ago. We had an early scan on Sunday and heard a strong heartbeat. The sickness is starting to calm down a bit now and I'm just putting it down to my hormones calming down, although I'm still sick a lot but feel better in myself xxx

Hi OP, im in the same position as you, im 8+3 and had bad morning sickness for a week but woke up Monday and nothing.
It's terrifying me also that we will go to the scan and there will be nothing there. I can't offer you an reassurance at this time but I can tell you your not on your own. I feel exactly the same xxxx

My symptoms went away about 11 weeks and I too thought they'd scan me and find nothing. It all came back with aplomb at about 16 weeks so make the most of this hiatus! And enjoy your scan smile

It is normal for your symptoms to go around the end of the first trimester as the placenta takes over. I was terrified of my first scan but it was absolutely fine. My nausea was awful but vanished completely along with the sore boobs around 12 weeks.

The hormones also come in 'Waves' so you can go a few days or weeks without.

Sarkymare Wed 26-Nov-14 23:03:56

I believe that your hormones start levelling off at about this stage. Most symptoms are caused by the surge of hormones, not just the hormones themselves which is why a lot of women report symptoms going AWOL towards the end of the 1st trimester --

Push it to the back of your mind.

Congratulations on both your wedding and pregnancy smile

Hi ladies, I'd love a bit of support here too- I'm 9 weeks and terrified that something has happened- I used to be peeing all the time, but the last couple of days it's almost gone back to normal and I don't feel pregnant at all. I've got our dating scan a week Monday, so trying to hold on and be positive until then. Anyone else had this? xxx

I'm 10 weeks and pretty much in the same situation as you - unexpected pregnancy, initially we were both a state, now excited and now the idea of losing the baby breaks my heart. I too find that I don't really 'feel' pregnant at the moment. It doesn't help that I never had proper morning sickness only slight nausea. The only things I notice are very subtle e.g. when I rinse my mouth after cleaning my teeth, I gag (now that could just be a gag reflex but I do feel that I have become a bit more sensitive since being pregnant) and I get the very occasional (once every few days) crampy/stretchy pain in my womb for a few seconds and then it goes.

It is awful but I think the only thing you (and I) can do is sit tight and wait for the scan, sadly sad

If it helps, I remember early in pregnancy I was convinced I wasn't actually pregnant, but I had a car accident so I went for a scan at 6 weeks and the baby was there, a little tiny 'blob' with a full-stop for a ticker! smile

I think it helps to know that this is a very common experience and that in the majority of cases things do turn out to be normal.

Wow, thank you so much for all your responses ladies, I am touched. Although I was sorry to read there are others in the same position, it has really helped me to know I'm not alone and that there are plenty of people whose symptoms have died off who have gone on to have normal pregnancies. Dating scan is a week today so I'll keep you posted and hopefully be able to reassure others who are having the same worries. xxxx

Just thought Id tell you that my morning sickness came to an abrupt end on Monday and today I spotted. I went for a early internal scan and baby is fine and has lovely heart beat smile try and stay positive, everything will be fine x

AnythingNotEverything Thu 27-Nov-14 21:16:38

I'm 10/11 weeks and have had a sudden huge burst of energy this week and the nausea seems to have gone. As pp said, it's just your placenta taking over.

And yes, come join us on the June antenatal thread. We're lovely and the earlier ladies are sharing scan pics grin

I logged on with the same concern last night. I'm nearly 10 weeks and my nausea has disappeared and I'm beginning to get my normal energy levels back. Feeling decidedly 'unpregnant' after being nauseous from 5 weeks! I'm even less worried about it after reading the above comments. I'm taking it as a blessing to feel a bit more normal and am fully aware that it may come back. Everyone's different and every pregnancy is different too so I guess we have to trust that our bodies know exactly what they're doing, even if it's all new to us!

Hi guys, I just want to say thank you so much for your feedback and responses, it means so much that you've taken the time to share your experiences with me smile

I have just come back from my 12 week scan and I'm delighted to say that the baby is there smile we could see the umbilical cord pulsing nicely and the scan picture we have is lovely and clear. It was very much a 'wow' moment! I hope that reassures others in the same boat.

I'm going to log onto the June Antenatal thread now. How exciting it all is.
