Hi, I'm driving myself crazy. I'm 8 weeks and up until a few days ago I had swollen sore boobs, nausea could smell everything from a mile away! The last two days I've had no symptoms and my boobs seem to have gone back to normal with no tenderness. Anyone with any idea of what might lay in store for me? Just scared now tbh.
My symptoms went around the same time, and I panicked so much. But it is perfectly normal so do try to relax ( easier said than done). Have you had any scans? I had one at 7 weeks and could see the heartbeatso was all happy, however when at 8ish weeks my symptoms went I was in panic mode again. I hated those first few months because as excited as I was I was so scared something was wrong all the time, much calmer after the 12 week scan and once you feel them move every kick is reassurance. Congratulations
I just had to comment on this as the similarity is amazing.
I am 7 + 5 and until from around 5 + 5 to 7 + 2 had HORRENDOUS nausea (I mean lying in bed all day next to a bowl, not eating and barely able to drink), vomiting, was disgusted by virtually all smells (including water and the smell the metal hammer my husband was using for DIY). My boobs were also so sore I had to wear a high impact sports bra including to bed.
However.... since 7 + 2 to now (so from Fri night to now) the symptoms suddenly stopped. My boobs are a teeny bit sore but nothing in comparison. I keep prodding them to convince myself they still hurt! I feel hungry, smells are not upsetting me.... I just don't feel "pregnant" anymore.
I've read sooooo many threads about this morning and it seems like it is normal for symptoms to come and go. And there does seem to be a pattern of them dropping off a bit around 8 weeks.
The general advice seems to be that if there is no cramping / bleeding the chances of anything being wrong are very small.
I called the EPU and was basically told that what I am experiencing is normal and to just "wait and see". Not very helpful. I have not seen my midwife yet - appointment is this Friday.
After losing a lot of sleep this weekend (I am a worrier though, and this is my first pregnancy, and it took us 2.5 years to conceive) my husband and I decided to book in for a one-off private "early scan". He called the "Baby Bond" clinic this morning and explained, and I am going at 4.30 today.
It's costing about £80 which we can't really afford but I will pay it for sanity!
I'm hoping to see that everything is fine and I have been over-worrying... It's very hard at this stage as you haven't had a scan yet, don't have a bump.....
I just need to see something in black and white!
I'll update you guys later, hopefully with a reassuring little bean pic.
I just wanted to say that I know how you feel (exactly!) and everything I have read indicates that this is normal.
Good news! Despite total disappearance of symptoms the baby is still there (!!) and absolutely fine. Saw it's little heart beating, head, body and yolk sack. It has some tiny "buds" for arms and legs that you could just about make out.
If you are worried and can afford and an early scan I would seriously recommend it to put your mind at ease, I feel so much better now.
