Should I expect to feel pregnancy symptoms every day?

I'm still very early in my first trimester (4 weeks) but I've been feeling so faint, dizzy, sore breasts, moody, low appetite and lower abdominal pulls and tugs every day. I've also been very bloated since 8 DPO. The thirst has been on and off.

Today is the first day that I'm really only feeling thirsty but don't really have any other symptoms. Today is also the first day that I've had a little bit of a normal appetite. Last night was the first night I got a really nice, long sleep so I'm not sure if that's contributing or the lack of symptoms means something.

Hi! My symptoms were on and off daily for the first 12ish weeks. Some days I’d spend all day with my head down the toilet, other days I ate 3 meals a day and felt on top of the world! The best advice I could offer is speak to your midwife or doctor if you’re worried!

My symptoms would get better and worse depending on time of day, if I was tired, what I'd eaten, if it was hot etc. I didn't feel constantly nauseated. I think you just have to see how it goes over the next few weeks.

Pregnancy symptoms in early pregnancy can come and go. I wouldn't use their existence or lack of as proof of anything. Relax, look after yourself and try not to obsess

@Taylor232 Good to know! This waiting game is awful!
