Hello - am sitting here trying to talk sense into myself. I'm 14 weeks and have had a dreadful aversion to strong smells / food in general, plus very sore boobs. During the last 3 days these symptoms have disappeared. I wouldn't usually be so worried but I had a CVS test 9 days ago and am freaking out that I'm going to miscarry. I have no tummy pain or discharge. Has anybody else experience something similar?
Hi echops - IME, the smells and sickness drops off around 12-14 weeks, and the boobs are less sore. My nausea and tiredness and smell aversion stopped at around 12 weeks, and boobs are worse on some days and almost no pain on other days (13 weeks now).
I think it is normal, but obv, if you are worried, call your midwife.
each week can be different in pregnancy IME so far, but also you are now in the 2nd trimester so things will be different to the 1st (I had terrible aversion to smells in the 1st that disapeared in the 2nd), the 2nd trimester has its own set of symptoms differing to the 1st and 3rd! its also the nicest part of pregnancy in its way, as the 1st can be marred with sickness etc., the 3rd with discomfort... enjoy!!
it can be scary - how do you know what's normal and what's not? soon you'll be able to feel the baby kicking and that will set your mind at rest. although then you'll worry if he / she doesn't kick for a bit! welcome to the joys of motherhood
