Help! I am 9 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and for the first 7 weeks I had constant nausea, no pains or aches and tender breasts. Now at 9 weeks all I have are tender breasts. I am due for a scan at 11 weeks. Is this normal? I also don't seem to be able to feel my uterus..
Your uterus is hidden behind your pelvic bone until 12-13 weeks, when it will start to peek over the top. Symptoms vary from person to person and change constantly throughout pregnancy so I wouldn't worry .
Anecdotally, I think an easing of symptoms at about 9 weeks is very common.
All my symptoms - even sore boobs - started to go at 8 weeks and went completely by 9. Since then I've had nothing apart from being a bit more hungry and having fancies for certain foods. I'm 16 weeks tomorrow, and was listening to baby's heartbeat just a couple of hours ago
Those weeks just before the 12-week scan are very stressful. It's easy to say don't worry, but . . don't worry! What you're experiencing sounds fine. And yeah, you wouldn't expect to be able to feel your uterus at this stage. The first time anyone felt for mine was 14 weeks.
