Hi all. I am now 8 + 2. I had been suffering from 24 hr nausea although no actual sickness and bad food aversions (just think ing about a tomato made me gag) but last 72 hours i am much improved. Feel weak and light headed if i dont eat every couple of hours and im exhausted but have not slept well past two nights. Still have sore boobs. But i dont feel as bad about food anymore either....im abit concerned.
Had some twanging today like a guitar string where i guess right ovary would be. And lower back pain like a dull ache.
Is it normal for symptoms to ease this early? I havent heard heart/ had scan and not due for one for 4 weeks so i am anxious
I think it varies from person to person - another person I know who is pregnant said her morning sickness improved at 8 weeks while I went the total opposite at 8 weeks as I started being physically sick that week. Sometimes as well you go through a few good days and you're just looking for some sort of symptom of pregnancy but then for me I had several bad days after a few good ones... The pains and sore boobs are a good sign your hormone levels are still high, and if you are eating frequently you can go through days without noticing nausea because eating often keeps the nausea at bay.
I don't think it's unusual for symptoms to ease off at this point - although they may return. I've had hardly any sickness to speak of at all - I'm nearly 13 weeks and there is definitely a baby in there. The first trimester is terrifying and my least favourite part of pregnancy!
Mine started at 6 weeks.. eased at 8 then came back until 12 weeks and now is completely gone.. well fingers crossed anyway! I'm 16 weeks now, make the most of the good days as it will probably return very soon x
Like PP, mine came on at 6 weeks, eased off at 8 weeks (odd days after) then week 13 it hit me again like a ton of bricks! I'm now week 14 and hoping I'm over the worst of it. My consultant said week 16 is most likely when it will ease. Good job they didnt tell me that week 6-8. It's been horrendous.
