No longer feeling sleepy at week 8 during first trimester. Am I miscarrying?

Hi.  I'm 8 weeks pregnant.  Between 4 week to a few days ago, I always feel tired and wake up sleepy even after 10 hours of sleep.  Right now, I can't fall asleep and wakes up at 5 or 6am fully alert only after 6 ot 7 hours of sleep.  Furthermore, I can hear my heart beat really hard at night.  It beats feel inconsistent.  Aside of breast tenderness and stuffy nose, I have no other symptoms.  Even my breasts stopped growing since last week.  Are any of those normal pregnancy symptoms or signs of miscarriage?

I think as long as you are still feeling some symptoms then everything is OK.  I'm 5 weeks and I was nervous yesterday b/c my breast were less sensitive all of a sudden.  But, I woke up at 3:00 in the mornign to use the bathroom and it felt like they were on fire so I guess those symptoms just come and go.  I also talked to my friend last night who is 6 months pregnant.  She said her symptoms would come and go and she would be nervous every time.  As long as they don't disappear completley, and you don't have any severe cramping or bleeding, you are probably fine!

All of the symptoms come and go. I don't think you have anything to worry about. My tiredness definitely would come and go.

The heartbeat thing I have in the first trimester too. When I sleep my heart feels like it is racing and feels really irregular. It always goes away after the first trimester. It sounds normal to me. I think it is something with the increased blood flow.

I had very few symptoms in the beginning, night sweats, sore bb's but no sickness at all, I am now nearly 9 weeks and apart from weight gain hardly feel pregnant at all!
This makes me worry too but unless there is severe cramping or bleeding I am going to try not to worry too much.
hugs and babydust

emcy2,

I'm actually about 8.5 weeks now.  We're so close!  Yeah, maybe we should be glad we have few symptoms.  But I couldn't sleep until after 3 hours of rolling around the bed last night!  Hope I'll sleep better tonight.

Good luck!

Oh, I gained a couple of pounds from week 4 to 7, but haven't gained weight for 1.5 weeks now.  Maybe a couple of pounds is too hard to determine.
