Hi all, i'm 10+5 and until last week i was sick everyday, boobs were tender and retching all the time. Since the weekend i have been feeling better still sick every morning and thats it, i dont retch only occasionaly my boobs hardly hurt at all and i'm only a little tired.

Has anyone else started to feel better?
I am now worrying myself sick that i have lost the baby.

I had a scan at 8 weeks and baby was ok saw the heartbeat and my next scan is at 12 weeks, i was talking to a friend ( so called) and she said to me that how she doesnt envy me going for my next scan as when she went for her 12 week scan the baby had died at 8 weeks and she never knew blah blah shock i cant get this out of my head now. Any advice? Thanks

Actually my only other real symptom is that i cry at every thing if that is a symptom or maybe just worry!

That happened to me at 10 weeks as well. I had really bad morning sickness and it seemed to disappear.

I was lucky enough to have another quick scan which reassured me everything was ok. Can you ring your midwife or early pregnancy unit?

I know how worrying this is, try and think positive and don't listen to your 'friend'.

Fingers crossed for you, let us know how you are doing. x

ps - almost straight after my scan my morning sickness came back!

It's probably you moving into the 2nd trimester. I had the missed miscarriage thing where the baby had died and I didn't realise, but the symptoms didn't decline gradually like yours have, they just suddenly went away completely. If you're fretting, contact GP and they can send you for an extra scan to check. Then tell your 'friend' if she can't be supportive she should keep her mouth shut.

Holly, don't worry!

The exact same thing has happened to me and my friend. Apparently, in many women, when they reach the 9-10 week mark the sickness and tiredness starts to abate. My doctor said sometimes it's because the body has got used to the hormones and can adapt better than in the early weeks.

I've felt absolutely wretched the last four weeks but have been going to bed at 9.30 every night and drinking gallons of water and I do feel marginally better.

I was told by the nurse that did the scan, that only 5% of women that see a heartbeat at 8 weeks go on to miscarry so I'm sure you're absolutely fine.

Hello Holly78 I am in a similar boat as you. I am 8 weeks pregnant and since last week I am feeling pretty ok. I have not had an eight week scan yet, by first ante natal and scan is in 3 weeks. I am patiently trying to wait until this time, but it is worrying. I have spoken to family and they say it is normal because your body gets used to the hormonal activities.
To be honest, nothing anybody says will make you feel better until the next scan so until then, try to remain positive and happy. I will update you when I get my scan results x

Ghana its a horrible helpless feeling not knowing isnt it. I think probably most mothers to be feel this way. Even though i have seen the baby at 8 weeks on u/s i still dont feel reasured sad

I think what people are saying about adjusting to your hormones are prob right.

This is my third baby but the last time i was pg was almost 8yrs ago so i feel like this is my 1st pg.

I cant really remember how i felt in my last pg except i was sick for the whole time, i guess that is why i am worrying. We have been tryng for this baby for a long time we have had 2 previous mc but they where early and i was in pain and bleeding. If i lose this baby i dont think we will try anymore as it taking its toll emotionally.

Good luck with your scan let me know how you get on, my next scan is the 7th oct i'm so afraid of going i'm thinking of cancelling.

Noooo you cant do strong and stay positive x

i'm 9.5 wks and have noticed a massive improvement this week in terms of morning sickness and tiredness. I'm a little concerned too but feel a bit better to see it's not just me!

Is this your first baby? It's my 3rd so wondering if my body is more used to dealing with the pg hormones <clutching at straws here>

Hope everything is ok for you.

holly78 Thu 25-Sep-08 12:57:56

This is my 3rd baby also my dds are 9 and 8

BabyBaby123 Thu 25-Sep-08 13:00:26

oh well lets hope i'm right then!

i don't remember feeling better this quickly before but it's 5 years since i last did this!

Cadelaide Thu 25-Sep-08 13:02:30

ask the midwife if she/he (how pc am i?) could have a listen for the heartbeat, I'm sure they'd do that for you.

soph28 Thu 25-Sep-08 13:06:44

If it's any consolation I've had 3 babies and before every scan I worried irrationally that there would be no heartbeat but there always was. I had absolutely no reason to think that away apart from some minor bleeding at around 6wks in my 1st pg. I think it's just a mother's instinct to worry!

soph28 Thu 25-Sep-08 13:08:00

cadelaide I had a male midwife for my booking app for dd1- was very strange but he was lovely!

holly78 Thu 25-Sep-08 13:25:32

I hope its normal to start feeling better at this point! x

holly78 Thu 25-Sep-08 13:36:15

Cadelaide they wont use doppler before 12 weeks, i asked that already its because the baby is still deep in the pelvis before 12 weeks.

Just want to say that after a week of nothing,my sickness and nausea has returned with a vengence today and i have never been sooo happy to feel like crap ! And i will be happy to feel like crap for many weeks to come grin xx

cali Fri 26-Sep-08 09:40:39

glad to hear you are feeling crap, was about to post not to worry too much,
I felt really sick 24/7 and it stopped really suddenly, woke up one morning and never felt sick again. It can happen and doesn't always mean the worst.

holly78 Fri 26-Sep-08 09:53:56

Thanks cali i'm so relieved, i think sometimes reading so many stories online do us no favours. When i was last pg i had no internet and all i had to refer to was emmas diary where everthing is textbook ! lol x

cali Fri 26-Sep-08 10:02:19

It is really hard though not to become completely paranoid about every new symptom or lack of symptoms.

I think I was actually more paranoid with 2nd pregnancy than my 1st.

holly78 Fri 26-Sep-08 10:07:56

Deff i was never this way with my first 2.
