Help please! All symptoms disappeared literally overnight. Is this bad news?

I'm scared. This is my second pg and I'm 7 weeks. I've been feeling sick almost all day every day for last couple of weeks and getting tired very easily. Today I feel completely not pg. I've not had to eat every hour to stop sickness coming on, and have been for a walk without getting tired. I'm now worried this may be a bad sign. I know all pgs are different, but last time I felt sick for 10 weeks before it gradually went.

Anyone got any suggestions? I don't feel I can go to a GP and say 'I'm feeling better' as they won't take me seriously. But I can't leave it for weeks and then get bad news at a dating scan, I know I won't stay sane til then.

Please tell me honestly if the same thing happened to you and what the result was. I just need to know.

My morning sickness vanished about a week and a half ago and i didnt feel PG anymore either! Sadly its reared its ugly head again in a different form... food aversion... great! I'm sure youre going to be fine! its only a few weeks until you have your dating scan. If not go talk with your GP and if they think something is wrong they'll do whats needed to find out!

Try not to worry.

When I was pg with No. 2, I had severe hyperemesis to the point that I could not even manage to get down the stairs or eat. One day, the symptoms diminished hugely as though they had almost totally vanished and I was able to walk around and go in the garden and eat. It must have been a hormonal blip, as DD was fine. And the pg symptoms came back the next day. Very strongly and I was very ill again.

I hope you are OK, but this does sometimes happen.

Thank you. It's good to know it's not necessarily bad news. I know I should not be complaining about feeling better, but should instead be thankful that I can eat at normal meal times like everyone else and not eat 3 different lunches!

It was bliss to be able to eat normally! Definitely made the most of it!

I am very worried as I had a miscarriage in May at 5 weeks but am now 9 weeks pg. I felt plenty of symptoms at first, mild sickness (which subsided), extreme tiredness (came on at week 5 or 6), constipation, lots of peeing, very sore and tender breasts but since a couple of days ago when I had a huge migraine and some mild abdomen cramps I haven't felt any symptoms at all. However, I feel quite wobbly emotionally and a bit sensitive and wonder if the symptoms have simply changed? I have a scan in 3.5 weeks and I'm wondering whether to try and have one earlier? Does anyone have any advice?

HopingCat, your OP could have been me!
I'm 9 weeks today and have had a few weeks of utter exhaustion and sickness, but then this past week I have just felt sort of 'normal'. Even my boobs feel less sensitive although still swollen.

I know how you must be feeling. A bit paranoid and also worried. I drove past a chemist yesterday and even considered buying a new pregnancy test just to check, but resisted the temptation.

My first pregnancy was very different so I can't compare them. I had no sickness and don't remember being as tired.

I guess all we can do is wait for the scans or talk to the GP. And maybe that pregnancy test isn't such a mad idea - a cheap(ish) way of getting some peace of mind!

Hi Hopingcat,
I had to post because I had this around 7 weeks and I absolutely convinced myself I wasn't pg anymore (have had 2 m/cs) and just did not feel pg. Anyway, I had a scan (as I had a tiny bit of bleeding too) and everything was absolutely fine.

I have just had my 12 wk scan and it is all still fine now! But I have not had strong pg feelings at all this time round, v little nausea, just lots of feeling tired.

Hope this helps.

WelliesAndPyjamas Thu 31-Jul-08 11:32:32

interesting that we've all experienced this at around the 7/8 wee mark. Can't be a coincidence. There must be some sort of change in hormonal levels or a new stage in development or something [technical terminology hmm]

nooname Thu 31-Jul-08 11:32:37

Oh and please resist the urge to do another pg test!

I did this a couple of weeks ago and used Boots own and got a really faint result, X 2 cos I bought 2 tests. Cue a day of feeling utterly devastated before I pulled myself together. All turned out fine so it was just the tests. But it was NOT what I needed to see!

WelliesAndPyjamas Thu 31-Jul-08 11:32:53

wee week

WelliesAndPyjamas Thu 31-Jul-08 11:34:02

oh ok, good tip, nooname
best to be patient

It just gives you another thing to obsess over and read too much into!
The sad reality is that even if something had gone wrong you'd still have enough hcg to get a positive result.

Unfortunately the only thing to do is sit it out and wait!!! I know as I've had more than my fair share of 1st trimesters to sit through!!

Hopingcat, it is a scary time for you but I think ple above are right about not doing a pg test as you will only get upset about it. Do you have the option to do a private scan? Depends where you are but they are £70 here. I am 13 weeks now and had one at 7 at hosp due to bleed, then one at 9 and a half really due to anxiety - had mmc in May where it had died at 8 weeks but |I found out at 12 week scan. As hosp scanned me the second time they said I would not have another til 20 weeks, knew I would be a complete basket case by then so paid for one at 12, it was fine. If its poss to do a scan its great for peace of mind, and if you can afford it you don't have to lie about bleeding to get an nhs one (which I know why ple do but always makes me uncomfy in case someone who really is bleeding has to wait...)

This happened to me when I was pg with DD. All was fine
