Early Pregnancy symptoms coming and going

(11 Posts)

Hi all

I'm 5 weeks + 4 and got my first positive 11 days ago. Hopefully I'm just worrying about nothing but I have been having some strong pregnancy symptoms since last week such as a few aches and pains, sore boobs, tiredness and seeing lots! Last night every time I actually woke up as my boobs were so sore. But then today they feel so much milder... only a little bit of back ache and boobs no where near as sore.. only a bit if I press them. Haven't had any bleeding or bad pains but I'm really worried that I'm just not pregnant anymore. Doesn't help my husband is away with work and I'm just sat overthinking things!!

Did this happen to anyone else and it is normal? I'm booked in for an early scan anyway next week, I'm just so desperate for a happy ending to this.

Thank you

It's normal. They do come and go. My symptoms didn't properly kick in until week 6/7. Now at week 9, puking twice a day and constantly nauseous but still convinced it's all over if the horror lifts for an hour or so. Try not to worry too much.

Thank you for your reply, i'm trying my best not to worry but I've actually had a complete meltdown today. My boobs just don't feel as sore or big and I've had a small about of brownish/clearish discharge so I'm thinking the worst. Has this happened to anyone else and they've gone on to have a good pregnancy? I think google is my enemy at the moment, I'm a massive worrier at the best of times.

Increased discharge is completely normal. Brown is ok. It's old blood. It's red you have to watch out for

Thank you, can brown turn into red though? I just think that coupled with my boobs now feeling sore has sent me absolutely crazy!

Sorry boobs not feeling sore that should have read.

Yes brown can turn to red, but it can also stay just as it is then go away. I have had both in two different pregnancies. This time I am nearly 10 weeks and been having light brown when wiping for 2 weeks, its scary at times but doesn't always mean something bad is happening. I've had a scan too and all is ok smile

symptoms or lack of really don't mean anything

Yep. Normal. I'm about 6+5 (had scan yesterday 😍) and had sore boobs two days before BFP but has been very on and off particularly leading up to 6weeks. Nausea kicked in about a week ago which is on and off aswell

I'm 11wks pregnant and don't really have any symptoms!
Sore boobs occasionally, bit of nausea, little bit tired.
Had 2 scans and everything all perfect smile

Thanks ladies, feeling a bit reassured now. I think it's because my boobs were so sore and now nothing but good to know other peoples symptoms were similar. I have an early scan on Thursday when I should be 6 +4 so fingers crossed for positive news.
