Thanks Joy!  I'll be 6 weeks tomorrow, due date is approx. Sept 5, 2010.  I've had my first ob but the doc didn't impress me at ALL.  She kept talking about how i was unlikely to be able to have a VBAC even though I've had four, she was going to do a quick ultrasound but somehow the settings on her portable machine got messed up and she didn't know how to fix it !!!  So I didn't get one...just as well, too early to see anything anyway.  But of all things,she didn't even give me a due date!!!!!!  I calculated it myself  I'm going to see my old OB on Monday.

No major symptoms yet but I'm sure they will come soon.  I've had sporadic feelings of mild nausea, increased potty breaks, some discomfort "down below", and mood swings, thats really all i can think of right now.

Thank you Joy for starting this.
I will be 11 weeks on Monday !!
Saw my baby swimming around this week on an ultrasound it was amazing.  I am starting to feel a little more relaxed and enjoying my pregnancy a bit more.  My symtoms (symptoms) are easing up some, and I am past my milestones from when I had a loss my first pregnancy.  
I would love to talk to others and help answer questions.  I also have the occasional question or two myself.  :)

Thanks Joy! I am 5 weeks, 1 day today.
2 nights ago I had a tiny bit of red blood on the TP when I wiped. It was the size of a pen dab and it happened twice. I am so worried! I called my midwife and she will be doing an ultrasound on Monday to check the progress and to make sure my cervix is closed. I haven't had any blood since then and no cramping at all so I'm hoping all is well. I am just so afraid that it is the first stage of a miscarriage or something. At 4 weeks, 3 days my HCG level was really high at 2,504 so I'm hoping we will at least be able to see the sac, yolk sac, and fetal pole. I am not expecting to see a heartbeat since it's so early. I just want to be able to relax a little bit about this whole spotting thing and I need some reassurance.
DH is so sweet, he is making me stay in bed this weekend to rest up for Monday. He's cleaned, did the laundry, made me breakfast in bed. He is so great = ) He is feeling very positive about this baby. He doesn't think the spotting was a big deal and I just need to relax!
This is mine and DH's first pregnancy so I am such a worry wart = )

Good Luck to all the first trimester ladies!

Amy:  just keep in mind that you will only be 5 wks 3 days when they do the u/s monday.  It may be too early to see a fetal pole.  I just don't want you to be disappointed and worry more.  With my last preg. I had my first u/s at exactly 5 wks 3 days.  Always we saw was the gestational sac and yolk sac.  A repeat u/s at 8 wks 3 days showed a perfect little bean with a strong heart beat.  Let us know how it goes on monday!!!

Thank you so much for the reassurance. I appreciate it. I definitely don't want to be disappointed if we don't see much. Thanks for the reminder.

Amy:
Same thing happend to me I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks 2 days and only saw a sac.  Had a repeat at 6 weeks 3 days and saw my little heartbeat going strong.  Don't worry too much if you can't see anything but the sac.  My levels were 7700 at the time of that first ultrasound, and I still couldn't see the fetal pole or heartbeat.

Hi,
I will be 9 weeks on monday and am completely miserable! I am having full blown nausea, vomiting, and even when I am able to eat (usually not until evening) I can't eat very much at a time! this is my 5th pregnancy ( 3 children and 1 MC) and you would think by now it would be easier, but each pregnancy is different. my 1st pregnancy I was really sick like this although i was able to eat just most of ti came back up, My other pregnancies i had nausea and vomiting , but no to this extreme. My first Dr appt is wednesday and I plan on talking to her then about the nausea. i am also hoping to have an ultrasound then as they have one in the office and i have had a MC before (with my  3rd pregancy) at 12 weeks, so I would like to make sure everything is ok. also my stomach is popping out very early and noticable already, I don't know if it because this is my 5th pregnancy or if it is, because I don't know. i do know though that is not just from gaining weight since i have lost 15 lbs (normal for me in the begining of pregnancy). I love bein pregnant, but i hope this part of it gets over soon!!! Good luck and healthy and happy pregnancies to all of us!

I know EXACTLY what you mean....I am on my 8th pregnancy (4 kids, 2 m/c, 1 stillborn) and no two were the same.  My last one, at the end I was SOOOOO uncomfortable....MAJOR hip pain kept me up at night, sinusese going crazy, throwing up, when my doc offered to induce on my due date I practically hugged him lol.  We will see how it goes this time.  I am 6 weeks today.

Hi Kirsty,
Try not to stress too much I know easier said than done, but more than likely everything will be fine the odds are with you.  I am on my second pregnancy first one ending in loss too.  I lost the baby at 7 weeks before, but didn't find out until I was 11 weeks.  I am 11 weeks tomorrow in this pregnancy, and just had an ultrasound a few days ago with the baby swimming around.  Now that I am passes that point I am starting to relax a little.  :)
When is your doc appointment?  Your due date?

Hey ladies!  I'm 8 weeks pregnant ... this is my 3rd pregnancy (1 m/c, 1 beautiful baby boy!).  Been super duper nauseous this time around and I don't remember it being this bad before!  So hopefully that means our little bean is doing fine!  I have my first OB appt this Thursday for an u/s and doc visit.  Very excited, but nervous.  My due date is between 8/13 and 8/20, and I'm hoping that this time I don't have to "evict" the baby!  =D  

Anyway, off to fight with my computer some more and tell the hubby to let our son take his nap!  =D

Hi heather, well i only found out friday that i am preggo so i think i am 4 weeks and 3 days going off last period date, i called the docs on friday when i found out and they just asked me if i had done a home test i said yes and he said that he didnt need to see me and just booked an appointment for me to see midwife on the 21st jani should be nearly 7 weeks then, well my last perdiod date gives me a due date of the 16th Sept !! Ithink i will be the same as you i think when you have lost a baby early you worry that the same will happen again it all seems so fragile at the moment but i think when i see my baby on a scan i might feel better.  I was thinking about maybe calling the docs and just asking for maybe a blood test to see if my hcg is ok but i feel a little silly about it x
Blank
964234_tn?1331952807
It's your doctors job to reassure you.  Just explain what happend before and say it would make you feel a whole lot better if they can do something to keep a closer eye on you.  I actually did that and they had me come in every two weeks for a quick scan in the doctors office (just with the little machine right in the exam room) and would show me the heartbeat.  Also, you can buy a home doppler to check the babies heartbeat yourself.  Although, you usually cannot pick up on it until you are between 8-10 weeks.  
Congrats to you and just keep thinking that you have more than an 80% chance that everything will be fine, after you see a heart beat at around 6 weeks 95% chance.  Hang in there just be as positive as you can.  :)

Thanks Heather, yea i am trying not to think about and just wanting to enjoy it !! me and my hibby are over the moon finding out and also i have been nlucky as we have only been trying for 2 months so i havent had to wait to long which is a blessing in its self as i know that there are ladies on here who are praying to get preggo so i am gratefull for that !! my hubyy says just to let things be and that everything will be fine but i just think i might feel better just knowing that my hcg levels are ok x I am so glad that everything went ok for you in the scan and just hope i make it to that point to !! x

It's never easy when you get pregnant after a miscarriage or stillbirth....no matter how many times you go through it.  I've been through it THREE times (2 m/c 1 full term stillborn)  it doesn't get any easier.  Just try to keep in mind that you have a higher chance of things being perfectly fine than you do of a repeat m/c.  Most docs don't consider you high risk after a m/c unless you have had 3 consecutive ones.  BUT a good doc will do what it takes to reassure you.  BUT keep in mind that a scan any earlier than 6 weeks won't really reveal much, possibly just a gestational sac and a yolk sac.  Just try to keep your mind busy with other important things like baby names and what color you want the nursery :D
Blank
394558_tn?1314816960
Thanks!! i am trying to do that and i think each day that goes by i am hoping my worry will get better, i suppose i just thought getting a blood test to check my hcg level was good would make me feel a little better, i wouldnt ask for a scan as i had one last time at 5 weeks and you couldnt really see anything so i would like to wait so i could see heartbeat this time ! i might just ask doc to do hcg bloods ?? x

I am sorry sorry to hear about your losses and i hope you never have to go through that again x

HCG numbers can be very reassuring, unfortunately even at your first ob not all docs do them as routine blood work.  But as I said, if you have a good doc s/he will have no problems doing it to reassure you.

I am 5 weeks and 1 day I believe lol
I had my hcg levels done on wed, 6th They were 840
Doc said thats good!
I do not have many signs of being pregnant!
My boobs are a bit sore and I get a bit more tired later on in the day!
THATS IT.
Im just so worried.
I keep feeling weird things in my lower stomach Not strong cramps but mild sharp twinges?!?!?!
This is my 3rd pregnancy, I know all pregnancies r different but my first 2 were identical.
Oh.... I hate the not knowing!
Blank
394558_tn?1314816960
Hi i am not to far begind you i am 4 weeks 4 days now i think lol, and i also have had twinges the last 3 days nothing to sore and after having m/c in jan 08 at the same stage the cramps dont feel like that, they are more premensral and come and go.  I have read alot on here about cramps in the early weeks and most are normal so i am trying to just think along those lines although i know it is scary when you feel them x

Well I have an appt with my old OB today.  We shall see what he has to say.  Ya'll please pray really hard that he is in agreement to do another VBAC for me!!!!  He did my last one when everyone around here said that he nor any of the other doctors in this area would do one, so hopefully with him having first hand experience on how well my body handles labor he will agree.   I doubt he will do an u/s today he usually schedules another appt for that but maybe I can atleast get a Beta HCG done.

I'm 10 weeks 4 days today and the nausea has been a DOOZY!!  This is my first pregnancy and I didn't imagine I would be this nauseated.  I have yet to actually toss chunks (LOL, sorry) but I have dry heaved soooo many times and it's so spontaneous it's not even funny.  Now I have this taste in my mouth that makes me gag!  I haven't had any cramps or anything that I have noticed.  I did lose a twin at 7 weeks and I am still having brown bleeding throughout the day and the doc didn't seemed concerned.  My EDD is 8/6/2010 which has not changed since day one so that's good!  I didn't realize how susceptible I was to conceiving twins until I miscarried and found out that my grandmother's side of her family had 2 sets!!  I already knew my dad has 2 sets of sibling twins and that I'm a fraternal twin and that my husband's sis had fraternal twins.  Looks like everytime we reproduce it's gonna be multiples!! scary!!!  Anyhoo, I just can't wait until I can eat normally and enjoy completely the little bean I have growing inside of me.  All I can say is this baby's gonna have a head full of hair with all these digestive issues I'm having!!!

Thanks for starting this thread - it's gonna be so cool to follow everyone - LOL

I am 7 weeks 3 days today - I had my 1st u/s on 12/29 and they saw 2 sacs - one was a little behind the other - then my second one on 1/5 and they were both measuring right where they should be - we saw and heard the heartbeat for one of them - *(dr said it is not unusual to not see any at all since we were only 6 weeks 4 days so we were happy to see one)* LOL  We go again tomorrow for our third Hopefully we see and hear both heartbeats - My due date is 8/27/2010.

I'm nearing the end of my 9th week and am constantly nauseated and fatigued.  For those of you who already have one or more kids - how the heck do you do it?!  I can barely drag myself out of bed in the morning - I can't even imagine having to get someone else dressed and fed and out the door.

For those of you who work outside the home also - have you told your boss yet?  What about co-workers?

I'm 6wks 5 days today! I have my ultrasound tomorrow. I'm very nervouse and excited. I had an ultrasound at 6wks last time which showed a heartbeat and then at 12 weeks showed 6wks 4days growth and no heartbeat. For this reason I will be requesting an additional ultrasound around 9 weeks. I need to know that everything is going ok this time. I really have no symptoms. I use to have horrible breast pain and now it's almost gone. I have developed gaging while trying to take my prenatals. I have had boughts of neasuea but nothing to bad.

I did end up telling my boss at the bar because last Sunday they were redoing the bar in the restaurant and I can't be around fumes from stain.  He ended up rescheduling them to come in after my shift so I didn't have to take the day off.

Brittny27- I should have my first ultrasound tomorrow too (I'm 9 weeks, yesterday!) Hope it goes well for both of us! I have also lost a baby at 12 weeks although i have had a successful pregnancy after that before this one. good luck!

Kramik107- thats wonderful i am , so glad you got to see both heartbeats tat awesome and reassuring! Congrats on the twins!!

i am still completely miserable with nausea, vomiting, and I'm tired a lot! which is a pain considering i have 1 child in AM kindergarten and 1 child in AM preschool and a 2 year old at home with me the whole time, just getting them back and forth to school all week is a challenge not to mention anything else that i need to get done! yesterday i threw up at my sons school when I picked him up (luckily I made to the bathroom, but all 3 of my children were circled around me saying "are you ok mommy?" it was , so fun). atleast i see my docto tomorrow and they said they will probably be able to do and ultrasound as they have all the equipment there! I will keep you all posted!

hey ladies! i am 9 weeks 2 days today :) going for my first ultrasound on tuesday. Kinda excited, this is my first pregnancy. Struggling to keep working my normal hours, being on my feet constantly is really taking its toll on my back, hips, legs and feet. Trying to hold off telling my boss til 12 weeks but might need to tell him sooner!  Still tryin to come up with some ideas and the courage to tell my mum shes gonna be a grandma! It would seem finding a good midwife is harder than i thought, since i had to go through the public hospital clinic here ( i cant afford to pay for private health care) sorry for the rant lol. if anyone has any suggestions as to how i can tell my mum, or anything to soothe my aches and pains feel free to share! :)

I have my ultrasound today I'm 6wks 6days. I really hope that I get to see and hear the heartbeat. I got blood drawn yesterday so I will also get the results of that today.  I'm at work till 7am I got two more hours and I'm about to fall asleep. These graveyard shifts are killing me. My appt is at noon which means I'm not getting much sleep! I'm glad I have nothing else planned for the day and I can just go home after and crash. I don't have to be back at work till 11pm.

My BF broke his ankle last Monday the 4th in his martial arts class. He finally let me take him to the ER yesterday. He thought it was just a sprain nope it was a big break and separation at the ankle he needs surgery. He's out of work for almost 3 months. After surgery he can't put any weight on his leg for 6-8 weeks and then only minimal pressure. He doesn't have insurance and he's now not working. I don't know how were going to afford his surgery.

I'll let you ladies know how my appt goes this afternoon. Have a great day ladies.

hey ladies, I got the results of my HCG and progesterone that was drawn Monday!  My HCG is 8,526 and my progesterone is 12.7, doc said both look good.  According to the "average" charts for HCG mine is on the lower end for being 6 wks 1 day (what I was monday when it was drawn) BUT, like I told my doc, the last several months before I got pregnant I had been ovulating around day 19 of my cycle no t day 14 so that would put me behind by 5 days, if that's the case my HCG looks REALLY good.  I stopped charting before I ovulated the month I got pregnant so I don't know exactly when I did.  We won't be repeating the tests since the numbers look so good.  Now I just have to wait almost FOUR more weeks before my next appt and my first u/s :( I will be 10 weeks by my lmp by then.  But doc and I both figure I will measure closer to like 9 wks 2 days or so because I usually ovulate later. February 9th seems like an ETERNITY away!

My HCG was 8200 and Progesterone was 19. I saw the heartbeat and it was 136! I didn't get to hear it. I was 6wks 6days at ultrasound yesterday and they didn't do a transvag

At first he freaked me out because he used the normal ultrasound wand on my abdomen and he couldn't find anything I told him that last pregnancy I was diagnosed with a retroverted uterus. So he switched to a different wand and a lot more pressure and he was able to find the sac and a flicker of a heartbeat.

Hi Ladies :)

I'm new to the forum AND 9 weeks pregnant. This is my first pregnancy ever. I'm almost 26 y.o. Very exciting times for both me and my husband. I have to do a lot of reading because I still know very little about this whole thing, especially when you guys write abbreviations lol. It's like someone is speaking a foreign language! But, I'll get the hang of it.
Well ladies, wish me luck. And I wish you all good luck and a healthy pregnancy :) Enjoy the journey.

If you are pregnant it is not adviseable that you mess with your cervix.  You risk infection and causes changes that are conducive to preterm labor.  I would leave the cervical checks to your doctor.

I had my ultrasound on friday I ended up being about 9 days less than estimated by my last period, but i have been irregular and thought i had ovulated a lottle bit late! I got to see the baby though and it's little arms a legs although they did'nt look like much since I am now 8 1/2 weeks instead of almost 10 weeks, i also got to see the heartbeat 168 beats per minute! i lov the first time you get to see or hear your baby's heartbeating it makes it more of a reality. My doctor also put me on meds for the nausea and vomiting and they are working which is great, but they make me really tired and i can't sleep all day since i already have 3 small children at home! Good luck to everyone else trying to get through the 1st trimester!!!

I was just wondering if any one in the early weeks suffered from cramps, iam nearly 6 weeks and over the last week i have had some minor cramping but yesterday they seemed to be more in one spot, i have read about ligiment streching and this could cause this i have had no blood or strong pain is this normal ?  I had m/c in jan 08 and the pains do not feel anything like that.

Cramping is very normal. It's your uterus stretching and growing.

Hey! I am currently in my first trimester 8w6d today! This is my first pregnancy and it has been stressful but well worth it. I saw my baby's heartbeat at 7w5d and it was 152bpm... That made my day! I've also been diagnosed with a subchronionic (sp) bleed and they found a cyst on  my ovary all things the doc explained.. Has anyone had this happen and go on to have a normal pregnancy after seeing the heartbeat

I'm not sure about the subchronionic bleed, but i have several cyst on my ovaries and have had 3 healthy pregnancies, the only thing they causes was stabbing pains every now and then in my ovary area! Good luck and seeing the heartbeat is usually a good sign!

Hi all!  I am in my first trimester.

Well ladies, today makes 8 weeks based on my lmp.  But, as I have said before I will not be surprised if I am several days behind that given that my cycles are usually over 30 days and I ovulate later.  I wont' know for certain until my u/s on Feb 9th.  The last week or so the "symptoms" have hit me like a ton of bricks.  I have felt HORRIBLE. Out of all my pregnancies I have never felt this bad in the beggining, I really feel this is gonna be a rough pregnancy.  (For those who don't know, this is my 8th pregnancy: 4 kids, 2 m/c's, 1 fullterm stillbirth) I've been getting headaches tho I don't know if it's a side affect of the pregnancy or the fact that I have really cut back on caffeine.  My lower back just about my butt bone and my upper back just below my neck bone have really been hurting lately.  That could be my lousy mattress I guess but i didn't feel like this before.  I haven't slept worth a flip lately.  I toss and turn and can't get comfortable.  I have a hard time falling asleep becuase I keep getting that restless leg crap.  I'm so exhausted all I want to do is sleep but I can't.  And the nausea...OMG the nausea.  I'm not throwing up Thank God, but my stomach has been really upset.  NOTHING sounds good and when I do make myself eat my taste is so off that even things i normally love taste like garbage.  My sense of smell has gotten so sensitive ...EVERYTHING food wise makes my stomach churn.  My sinuses are driving me crazy, but I expected that, I have sinus problems anyway but they get ten times worse when I"m pregnant.  

Ok, Just had to gripe a bit.  I'm done now :)

10wks 3ds and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel of nausea.  (yay!!!!)

My work is offering the seasonal flu and h1n1 flu vaccines.  Has anyone spoken with their drs about the vaccines?  Any recommendations?
Blank

My doctor recommended both of them for me, i have now recieved the H1N1 since becoming pregnant, but they were out of the seasonal flu shot. i am not as worried about the seasonal flu though. I reseached  the H1N1 and feel comfortable with my choice to get vaccinated and, so far I have had no adverse reactions except a sore arm! research it and see what you think there has been a lot of differing opinions on it. i decided to get it, because I have several small children at (which have also been vaccinated) that bring all kinds of germs home from school, pre-school and playgroup. and i know that if you get it while you are pregnant it can be very bad. Good luck with whatever you decide! and congratulations!! I'm 9 1/2 weeks, so we are not that far apart!

Thanks!  I think I've decided to wash my hands all the time and get the shots next month.  I'm still too nervous to do anything too invasive in the first trimester...

In October of 2008 my husband and I experienced our first miscarriage at 9 weeks. Baby was not viable. I just found out today that Im pregnant again. A week ago I experienced some spotting off and on and im guessing its implination b/c it was around 7dpo and I had the same with the last pregnancy. Well I thought it was my period b/c Ive been having irregular cycles for the past few months now....so I have been using a regular size tampon off and on for a week thinking i'd start at any moment. Im now concerned that me wearing a tampon for the past week will increase my risk for a miscarriage or growth problems of my growing baby!?!? I am currently not spotting only cramping off and on and not using tampons. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you :0)

Hi ladies! So most of you know me and my situation, but if not here it is: I have had 2 children (boys) and 2 m/c's. We were doing fertility meds and I went off of them to lose the weight and we got pregnant in late december :) I had my hcg checked on Thursday (the day of my positive test) and it is only at 36 but now my morning sickness has kicked in full swing and dh and I are hoping that it is a good sign :)

I am 5 weeks and 5days and im not feeling no pregnancy symptoms, because of this and after reading all the post on miscarriages im scared that a mc might happen to me. I have my 8week check up and ulrasound on feb 15, im excited and scared and i so cant wait; however i wanted sum advice on my scare of miscarrying?

okay, so i'm nearly 12 weeks. but i'm having trouble connecting and coming to terms with the fact that i'm gonna be a mum (unplanned pregnancy) which is making it hard for me to tell people, especially my mum. I wanted to tell her ages ago, but just dont know how to do it cause i know she's not gonna be happy about it. has anyone experienced anything similar?

When I got pregnant with my first I was 18 and it was unplanned.  I KNEW my mom was gonna be mad/upset.  I waited and waited to tell her.  I finally just said "I need to tell you something" and she looked at me and said "You're pregnant, I know".  She said she had a feeling.  My best advice is to just come right out and tell her.  You ARE an adult and even though this is unplanned it doesn't make this baby any less loved.  She will probably be a little disappointed at first, but she will come around.  You will feel SOO Much better, so much more relieved once you've gotten it out.  Besides the longer you wait to tell her, the more hurt she is going to feel.

I went through the same thing with my parents when I was your age. Although, I must say that telling my strict catholic grandparents that their unwed granddaughter was much harder to do. You're an adult now hon, and no matter what any one else thinks, things will turn out how they ought to! My family (as soon as they saw my first born daughter) fell in love with my baby girl and have grown to accept (for the most part) that I'm an adult and cabable of taking care of me and my children! good luck to you!

I dont know what to think right now????I have been cramping on and off but some are just a crampy sensation and i have a couple a day that are a little painful but nothing i need advil for. Lastnight after sorry tmi, but going # 2 hehe....I wiped and noticed like brownish marroon from what i can remember on the toilet paper. It wasnt bright red or clots nothing. After that i fell asleep and nothing more. Today being the day after all i did was spotting a tiny tiny bit on my panty liner. it was a tan color. Im not sure if this is an impending miscarriage or just something like implination??? Kinda concerned but still wanna wait to go to the doctors until i start bleeding red or my 8th week. I figure id be bale to see something then. Last time i was pregnant i had four u/s before 8 weeks b/c it was too early to tell. so i dont wanna go through that emotional rollercoaster all over again. Any adives would be greatly appreciated!!!

I am 10w3d today!!! I do have a question. I saw my jellybean's heartbeat at 8w and am not due to go back in till feb 12th. How do you stop worrying about every little twinge? I've been reading about missed m/c and m/c in general which is freaking me out! My sickness has been coming and going and my breasts aren't as sore, more sore to touch. How do you ladies stay worry free as you make it towards the end of the first trimester?

We, as preggo mamas, are just more apt to worry about every little thing that happens to our bodies. I have been having the same cramping sensations that you are describing but from everything that I have read says that it is completely normal. I go tomorrow morning for my second beta check and the fatigue is kicking my poor but today but dh keeps telling me how beautiful I look and I think that I am getting a little more comfortable with the idea of being pregnant and us going the whole nine yards with our relationship after the rough patch we had in December :)

I posted this on another thread and I'm looking for all input possible.  I am 8w6d today with my first pregnancy and for the past three days I have had no nausea.  It started at around 6 weeks and it was off and on throughout the day up until a few days ago?  I've read so much about mc and mmc, which really worries me.  Has anyone had nausea disappear around 8 weeks and either come back or not and still have a healthy baby?  This sounds crazy, but I just want to feel sick again so I know everything is still progressing normally.  My next ob appt. for an u/s isn't until Feb. 22!  I'm going to drive myself mad during the next three weeks if it doesn't come back.  My nips are still sore like they were and I still feel bloated sometimes.  Fatigue is still around and I'm getting slight headaches, but with the disappearance of m/s I'm freaking!  Please help and pray for my baby bean.

sarahjackson0520 - Try not to worry too much, nausea can also be a sign of a miscarriage, just because it disappeared doesn't mean your not pregnant anymore!  I had a missed miscarriage, and the only pregnancy symptom that went away was my "crazyness" according to my hubby.  I was 11 weeks and the nausea actually got worse around the time the baby stopped developing (6 1/2 weeks).  If your really worried you can always call your dr's office and ask if it's normal, sometimes the nurse will say you should see the dr or tell you it's not an issue.

Well ladies i'm 9wks 4 days today....according to lmp. I have my first ultrasound next wednesday (2/9).  I have a feeling my dates will be adjusted back by atleast a couple of days becuase my cycles are longer. For some reason here lately I have been MEGA ehxausted even though I'm sleeping at night.  Today I did pretty much nothing but sleep .  This nausea is driving me NUTS.  Makes me wonder if I'm having another boy?! :) I got nausea with BOTH of my boys for the entire first trimester plus a week or two.  With my girls I only had sporadic days of it, like if I ate a certain thing.  This time it's constant...morning, noon and night. I'm anxious to find out what the sex is so I can compare symptoms between all of my kids.  On the other hand things are different this time from any of my other pregs.  The nausea/food aversion seems worse than any time before, I've had a lot more back ache, I've had way more abdominal discomfort.  I usually get restless leg syndrome later on in the pregnancy but i got it almost immediately this time.  My asthma is acting up sooner than usual.  We shall see what my ultrasound reveals next week. I hope this next week goes by fast.

It happens at different times for all of us and some of our bodies are more apt to happen later than some others... I know that I was sick all of the time for 38 weeks when I was pregnant with my youngest son and I was also sick from 8 weeks out til 36 1/2 weeks with my first son... I really think it just all depends on how your body functions. I am not nearly as sick this time and I am starting to think that this baby is a girl :) Maybe that is just wishful thinking :)

So it doesn't always work like that. I don't ever know until I am at least 6 weeks out because my periods have always been out of whack and my tests don't show until at least 6-7 weeks out...

Im also feeling more, how do i say this "wanting to have sex ALOT MORE THEN USUAL!" Could this be pregnancy?

It's always possible that you're pregnant if you have unprotected sex when you ovulate.  The chances are slim if you only have sex once, but that's all it takes when you're healthy and young.  
The symptoms you're having could be pregnancy, even the increased sex drive, but they can also be "phantom" symptoms from worrying about it a lot.  
I would get an Early Pregnancy Test like "First Response" in a two or three pack and test first thing tomorrow morning when you wake up, because that's when your pregnancy hormone level is strongest.  If it's negative but you still think you might be pregnant and too early to tell, test again in a week first thing in the morning and so on until you get your next period.
Or see a doctor.

Hey everyone!  I figured since I have started jumping into the forums, I should post here.  I just found out I'm pregnant a week ago.  This is my 4th pregnancy.  I have 2 kiddos naturally, 12yr old boy and 9 yr old girl and 7 yr old step daughter.  My last pregnancy ended in miscarriage in June of 08.  
This pregnancy is a big surprise as I have 2 herniated discs in my neck (diagnosed, so far) and degenerative disc disease in my spine.  I was on about 6 different meds when I found out and have managed to get down to 2 with some advice from my pain management doc and the internet pregnancy class ratings.  (Most doctors are, sadly, no help and will take no responsibility for prescribed meds.)  The meds I cut were Klonopin, Trileptil, Topomax (topamax), and Soma.  The ones I am on are Flexeril (I still had and swapped out for the Soma), Methadone, and Hydrocodone/Aced (Norco).
I still haven't been in to see the OB yet, but have an appt on Feb 10th.  (They don't seem to think the meds are a big deal, and are just referring me to a high risk doctor which is why I'm in even more of a hurry to get to this doc and then to the next one.)  This site has been really helpful for my worry about all of this, and probably the only reason I haven't lost my mind over anxiety about the meds.  I was able to taper myself off of the ones I was taking that cause the most damage, but I still worry about what they may have done previous to my finding out I'm pregnant.
My last period was around Dec. 5th, but I had a negative EPT in January.  I was thinking we were done having babies and my new DH had just talked about permanent BC when we found out so I am shifting my focus and accepting God's blessing for what it is.  I've had a lot of new pains with this one that I didn't have with the other two but I think it's because I'm 10 years older than last time, and trying not to fear the worst.
I've enjoyed watching the stories unfold here in the forums and am eager to see how it goes for you all.

Hi ladies... So I have been so worried about another m/c so I went to the dollar store and bought 4 tests... I took one last night and it was dark but I took one this morning with FMU and it was twice as dark as the control line so I am assuming my numbers went up significantly... Anyone else here with the possibility of having twins or more?

hey everybody..

i have a question because i think i might be pregnant, and if i am this would be my first time. im a little worried, and not knowing what is normal or what not. i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend january 9th, but i started my period january 8th. and well 2 weeks after that, my boobs have been very tender, i've felt very nauseous, i've had some kind of brown discharge but it has no smell or nothing so i know it's not a disease or nothing, i've been feeling very tired lately, i've been craving pickles like there's no tomorrow, i've been getting mood swings, and my lower back is starting to hurt. i really dont know what to think. and well my bf has a very high sperm count, i dont know if that can increase my chances of being pregnant. i am very regular when it comes to my period, and well i am due today and i have no spotting of any kind, nor do i have any cramping when i mostly do. also we had sex just this past weekend, and when we were done the *** leaked out, and well i heard that's because your cervix is closed, because you are pregnant. is this true? should i be taking a test? and has anyone else ever gotten symptoms that fast before? and also i haven't been thinking about it til now. thanks for your help.

My grandmother had twins and my cousin had twins, so it's possible that I could be carrying twins. (It might explain why I feel twice as pregnant as I ever did this early)  They say it skips a generation in our family.  I have two kids who aren't twins, though.  So far this pregnancy has been full of suprises so it would be ironic if there are twins in there.  
I hope if you are wanting multiples you have them!  I think it would be exciting, but from watching my cousin (whom I was raised with) run after her boys, I know it's exhausting.  
Congrats on the darker line and the Anniversary! :)

Hello ladies. I'm almost 6 weeks and just wondered if it's normal to feel NO cramps. I had minor cramping with my first child. Then tons of cramping throughout the whole pregnancy with the blighted ovum. Now this time I literally feel nothing. I guess I'm so used to hearing about cramps. When did they start for everyone else, or did anyone else not have ANYTHING?

I had no cramping with my first child.  I had some cramping with my second right around 3-4 weeks (I thought it was PMS).  Now on my 4th pregnancy (after one m/c) I have had quite a bit of cramping.  

I think every pregnancy is just different.  I think it's normal not to have cramps, personally.

unless its really extreme, I would'nt worry about it too much increased discharged is normal in pregnancy and if your not having any other problems then it should be fine. is there some reason you are worried? if you are stll not sure call your Dr office tell them the situation and ask them if they feel you should go in. but increased discharge is perfectly normal.

Hi. Can anyone tell me what you felt during the first few weeks of pregnancy?

I just found out I am pregnant with blood test on 2/13 with IVF.

I have been experiencing menstrual like cramping frequently and also my stomach is bloated.

The cramping have been going on for 2 weeks already and hasn't decreased yet.

Hey..m crying from last 2 days as went for my first checkup and according to doct m at 11th week, according to my last menses..i was calculating that as 7th week due to my meeting date i had in my mind. Doc said that it is expected case of missed abortion and there is no flickering or movement, there is no growth. According to her there r very rare chances to get this baby up. she said i should have started spotting.. she didnt check heart beat.. but did ultrasound. She asked me to come again after 2 weeks but dat is killing me at every second. I was so disheart u can't even imagine..had so much stress due to that... Please please suggest if u have anything for me. I m planning to visit some other doctor as well, but m so much scared. Can't face reality like this..its so harsh. :'(

my dear mona....I can not found the rigth word for you rigth now....and believe me I know how you feel....I bin true misscarry 7 time but im not saying with this to that is your case....my only advice is to go to another doctor first, to ask for a ultrasound and to check if can found the heart bit and for last to cheq you level of hcg few time to see if incrise or dicrise....i think is a good thing to you are not spoting or bliding....don't lose hope...that is the last thing you have to lose but in case it happend....yes, will be painful fisicaly and mentaly but you will go true, what you can not aloud you self to be afraid to try again and lose hope....if it happend, you should not give up and keep trying...look at me....i bin true 7 and im still here figthing....im rigth now 8 week and thanks god everything so far is goin good....if that baby don't make it and you keep trying, one day one will be, one will make it true and you will be a happy mom....im here for you for whatever you need...dont be afraid to ask....and you will be in my pray....god blees you and take care of you and your baby.

Hey Ladies! I just found out I'm 4w5d with my first child!My hubby and I are super excited. I have had no symptoms yet except for fatigue. I wake up yawning and am tired all day! I started eating healthy and quit smoking cold turkey right when I got a positive result. So things are going good so far. (Except for the stress of no nicotine...lol)  I have a question for all of you.....when and how are you going to break the news to your family (if you haven't already) Should we wait until the 1st trimester is over? I'm waiting to tell my boss until then, but I don't know if I can wait to tell my family. Any suggestions?

Hello ladies, I am currently 10 weeks pregnant as of today! I've had extremely bad morning sickness (actually it's all day sickness) for the last few weeks. I've already lost 14lbs, I've tried crackers can't keep them down, vitamin B6 and Unisom (that's what my Dr. prescribed me) Finergen (but I'm allergic to it) and ginger root (which I can't stomach) I was just curious if anyone has found a remedy for this??? I had it extremely bad with my first son (I lost 40lbs) and now it's the same with my second one. I can't even keep my prenatal vitamins down any more. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

***SORRY ITS SO LONG***   hi guys! well i was wondering if anybody could help....i am on BC but I lost my pack for january so i was off for a month. I had my last AF on 02/02 and i found my pack on the 9th and on the 10th i started antibiotics for a UTI and then I missed like 2 or 3 pills somewhere between the 10th and 14th. So the problem is me and my BF had sex on 14th and 16th(when i might have ovulated) but we only used the withdrawal method and he almost didnt pull out in time both times. For the past 5 or 6 days i have been worrying i may be pregnant as I have been pregnant before. I had copious amounts of CM for a couple of days then starting on 26th I had very very light cm that was brown. I decided to finish my pack just in case and today im taking the last active one. due to lack of funds(im a full time college student who happened to get a ticket for $400 ugh) I wont be able to test until the 5th. I have never spotted brown while on the pill in 2 yrs and my boobs have been hurting for the last week and a half and I have had neckaches everyother day like the last time i was pregnant and I get nauseous(sp?) off and on for last two days since after the spotting started with accompanying cramps. If i am pregnant then I would be happy bc of previous MC. Oh yea I threw up last night at work for absolutely no other reason then the nausea. Thanks in advance.

In the very beginning of my pregnancy, I had no symptoms. Until about 10 wks, when I got bad morning sickness for 3 wks straight. That was the first thing that was different. I only knew I was pregnant because I took a HPT, and was starting to doubt as well until I went and had a blood test done. I don't know how common it is to have no symptoms in the beginning, but I know you're not the only one:)

Omg I am so sorry to hear about your concerns, I can't guarantee everything will be okay but I'm praying for you, I can't believe how hard that must be.
However I have heard by around 10 weeks some peoples symptoms do start to decrease, because you aren't needing your own hormones to support the babys growth as much anymore, and that is what wreaks havoc on your body is the hormones.

As for myself I'm 11w4d! I had my ultrasound at 9w2d, found out I was about 9 days behind schedule (thought I was almost 11 weeks when I went for my ultrasound lol) but now I'm even past 11 weeks and man has it flown! I didn't have any symptoms except for food aversion to chicken, back pain, and a positive pregnancy test so it was such a breath taking moment actually seeing my baby swimming around in my womb hehe.
My next doctors appointment will be at 14 weeks where I'll get to hear babies heartbeat, and then he'll schedule me in for my 18 week ultrasound!
My due date is between Sept 9th to the 18th because their not 100% certain yet, which regardless is spectacular because my birthday is Sept 14th! I'll be turning 21 then, and I'm a single mommy and dealing with the troubles of an ex, great fun lol.
Next week I'm going to start making calls to pick a midwife!

Hi girls, I'm new to this thread.

I found out on 3/11 that Im pregnant. My HCG was 121, on 3/13 it was 234 and on 3/15 it was 541. Do you think its rising normally?

I've had 2 m/c in 2009. I'm really worried.

I thought i felt to good to be pregnant this time. I've been having some nausea in the evenings and I'm extremely tired by noon. But the last couple days I've been having some cramping. Is that normal? We've been TTC for about 21/2 years now and I want this to be the one that works. So i'm worrying about everything. I'm 4wks 4 days today.

I'm not positive yet if I'm pregnant. I took several hpts all but one positive. I have a dr appt tomorrow to find out 100%. If I am pregnant I should be right around 6 weeks give or take a few days. I'm SO nervous. My mom had 4 kids with no problems no m/c but my older sister had 2 m/c before she finally had a child. I'm pretty nervous because it was supposed to be difficult for me to conceive because of a small growth on my cervix but I wasn't even trying to get pregnant. I really hope if I am all goes well. I'm really just a worry wart I think but I've been having light cramping for 2 weeks strait.. Don't know if that's a good or bad sign. But I've never been so happy to be this sick in my entire life lol. I love to eat and am hungry ALL the time but I can't keep anything down. Especially my vitamins. Good luck all!

Hello ladies, I'm 21 and I just found out yesterday that I am pregnant for the 3rd time after having 2 miscarriages in 3 months. I had to have a D&C at 10 weeks w/ baby#1 (after seeing a heartbeat of 96) on October 30, 2009 and I had a chemical w/ baby#2 at 5 weeks on January 27, 2010. I am super excited to be pregnant again and suprisingly optomistic, I feel like this is the one!! My only concern is, when I talked to my doc's nurse about 2 weeks ago (urelated) I happened to ask her that if I got pg this cycle would they be seeing me earlier. She said No. Now I realize that they can't really see anything as of yet, but was just thinking that maybe they should be taking blood or something to make sure I am on track. Just wondering if that's normal. I am leaving this pg in GOD's hands, it's so much less stressfull to know he is taking care of everything for me!!

Congratulations, i hope all will have a happy ending this time for you. I had a mc on the 27th of november 2010 then fell pregnant at the end of december, i had my HCG monitored 3 times a week for a fortnight then twice a week for a fortnight i also had an ultrasound when i was 8 weeks just to check bub was in there and had a heart beat then i had another one at 11 weeks, I'v only had the one mc so not classed as high risk but my doctor is wonderfull and wanted to do everything to reassure me that my baby was off to a healthy start, maybe you should ask your doc to monitor your hcg levels but if you are happy leaving all in gods hands go for it. good luck.

The nurse was wrong - I called to make an appt yesterday, and they had my doc. call me and try to get me in today...work wouldn't swing it...so I am going in on Monday to check my levels...I'm happy that they are being proactive, but nervous too.Glad everything is going good in your pg!! I am leaving it in God's hands as there is not much the doc's could do, I just keep praying and taking my ic pg tests to see if they are getting darker - they are slowly and of course I remind myself that I got a pos. on the digital in 1 minute (in the 1st pg it was 3 min and the chemical wouldn't trip it at all) so that's something that keeps me going!! I feel really good about this pg!!!! Anyone else having lots of hot flashes?

Hello ladies I am pretty late to this group. Hope everybody is doing GREAT! Well, I am 11 weeks pregnant with twins and I am due Oct 14th. Its been pretty rough for the last 5 week because I have been so ill but I hopeful that things will improve in the next couple of weeks. Now if only the cramping and spotting would go away and I would be stress free but none-the-less I am taking it easy.So since I am high risk now I go in every two weeks but its cool I just stay positive and think now I get to get even more pictures of my babies to add to my scrapbook!!I just can't wait to see my future babies!! :)

nessa128 - my progesterone levels were normal at 24.7!! I requested that they be periodically checked - heard somewhere that at 4-5 weeks it should be around 20!! I am supposed to get a call within the next few days as to when the doc wants to see me again!! Hope everything is okay in your pregnancy and I will be praying for you!!!

Hey ladies... I am currently pregnant with my second child 7 weeks. Everything has been going great, just have had extreme morning sickness =( I do have an odd question, yesterday after I went to the bathroom when I wiped i had a lot of mucus, It looked just like a mucus plug... It makes me a little worried. I have no clue if it is just heavy discharge or if something is wrong....

Hello everyone!

This is my first time here. Just before easter I found out I was pregnant with my first child which was great news for my husband and I. I'm exactly 5 wks and have been referred to Dr Julie Grant in Adelaide who delivers at Calvary Hospital. I'm not sure if anyone on here is from Adelaide but wondering if anyone could give me any information about Dr Grant? I'm waiting to get a phone call back from one of her staff members to book my first appointment. I can't wait! :)

Well, 6 weeks pg now!! 1st appt is April 22nd, I really feel like they should see me sooner, but my doc. is on vacation this week and I figure they are probably pretty backed up. I asked that my progesterone be periodically checked and left a message for the nurse, but have not heard back :( they will be getting a piece of my mind when I go in I can tell you that...then again, if everything goes great I'll probably be too happy to say anything lol!!! Hope everyone is doing well!!! Btw anyone start showing early? This is pg 3 after 2 m/c, one at 10weeks and one at 5weeks. Family and DH commented that I have a pouch going on and that I actually look pg (that was DH when and I was nude) THinking probably bloated, I just don't feel bloated lol!! HOpe everyone and myself included will have a h&h pregnancy!! I will continue praying!!

Hi Everyone,  I thought I would write a note here again.  I was pregnant and had a m/c over a month ago at 7 weeks.  We weren't try to get pregnant but it was still hard.  We were using non-hormonal b/c (as I have an aneurysm and am not a candidate for it) and when I didn't get AF this month I figured my hcg was still high from the m/c.  It turns  out I am pregnant again, miraculously, so I am accepting this as a blessing and hoping for the best.
I'm not sure how far along I would be now, probably 6 weeks.  I hope everyone has a great pregnancy.

I'm not an expert at all in Ultrasounds. (When I had my first two kids the standard practice was only one ultrasound per pregnancy and that at 16 weeks.)

The last pregnancy they did about 4 or 5 to figure out the due date and I had some problems.

I'm pretty sure your doctor wants to do an Ultrasound so that they can see the heartbeat and baby and make sure everything is going well.  I have read that they can see a heartbeat before they can hear it sometimes.

I'm just posting an update about my weird pregnancy.
I went to the doctor today to get a basic confirmation of pregnancy and due date (for insurance).
They are saying I'm probably about 4 weeks pregnant based on my LMP which was actually a m/c around 2/25/10 to 3/5/10 (I don't remember) One weird thing is, I haven't had an actual period since December.  I think it is closer to 6 weeks though because I had a BFP about two weeks ago.
Another weird thing is that were using BC and the nurse who calculated my due date was just as bewildered as I was upon seeing the BFP.  She even said "How could this happen?".  
So I am hoping for the best and that I am able to handle this pregnancy and have a happy and healthy baby.  They took my hcg today so I'm looking forward to finding out what it is.  I will probably have an appointment in a week or so, depending on the hcg.
I appreciate any prayers and good thoughts.  I will be thinkikng of each of you, also.

We just got our BFP today !!! Thinking we are probably 4-5 weeks. Hard to guess because I have not had af since mirena removal March 1. Very excited to be pregnant again. Maybe the most excited I have ever been because our two boys were both unplanned but not unwanted. Woo Hoo

I found out I was 5 weeks and 5 days today at my u/s. I too like the lady above was not happy with my obgyn. I was pregnant last year and from the very begining they didnt see to thrilled about it. I had to ask for my due date and eveything and I dont think thats how you should feel with your first pregnancy. Now I am going through the same exact thing, Its almost like he is holding something back when he is talking to us telling us about the pregnancy. Im scared because I had a miscarriage last year they said the heart stopped beating....heartbreaking! Now Im experincing these really extreme cramps he told me not to worry unless Im bleeding but that just doesnt sound right. I would think they would be treating this as a high risk pregnancy but it doesnt look as though they are. Should I be worried b/c they didnt see anything today but the sac? I am going tommorrow and monday to have blood work done to see if it is a chance I will miscarry again. Any advice

Hey ladies, been awhile I know as the last time I posted I was 6 weeks lol!! I am now 10 weeks today and my 8 week ultrasound went great, baby's hb was 166. I later had to be put in the ER for dehydration (throwing up so much) and the baby's hb was 171!! The ER doc. said that was fine and that it might be up because mine was. I ordered a doppler off-line, one with a screen that tells you the hb and though it took a while, we found the hb yesterday and it fluntuated between 166-172!! So all is well at 10 weeks, my next appt is on the 19th of this month and I'll let ya'll know how that goes!! I'll be praying for everyone on here!!

I'm about 4 weeks and about 3 days ago, I had some brown spotting, then pink, then red =( I've been having some mild cramping too...going to see the Doc today.  Is this a miscarriage? It just feels like I'm having a period.  Not really heavy or very much pain.  Can anyone tell me what a miscarriage is like?  My DH and I are preparing for the worst :(

im 7 weeks today and although i feel dizzy sick, dont want to eat anything except potatoes and my boobs are huge and painful...my tummy has gone flat again. i have been quite bloated for the past few weeks and kinda liked it as it made me feel preg even though i knew it wasnt the baby. i had some brown spotting- not enough to fill a linner and it lasted about 4 days then it went away and now its come backm again, its pretty much the same but a bit darker sometimes, its lasted 3 days so far and seems to have stoped again. when i saw my MW last thursday she said thats fine and normal but gave me the early pregnancy number just incase. im not too worried as i havnt had any blood although i did have cramos the first time i spotted but they havnt come back again. it seems like tones of women have had brown spotting and have had healthy babbies (many seem to have girls so who knows)
i just wish i had a bump now. i needed to get clothes for work so got some maternity stuff and as i was so bloated i could fit in them but now im back to my other clothes and my trousers are too big for me at the moment!!! :( i know im not eating much but i dont think ive lost weight. im a size 10 UK so not big anyway.
has anyone else had all this?
i dont live near my mom so im having to learn about my baby by reading things and teaching myself...which is quite depressing actually.

Oh blast!  I was almost finished with a question (of serious nature) and I pushed a button and deleted it.  I don't know what button it was though.

Let me start over:

First of all, hello to all!  I am new here and actually not even sure I am pregnant.  II took an ovulation test on May 11th and had sex with my husband just to get pregnant..  

Well tonight, we had a fight and I had 2 shots of Irish Cream.  I know in my heart that it was a bad decision and now I don't know what to do.  I guess what I am asking is what are the chances that even if I am pregnant I didn't just kill my baby and the baby will be born healthy?  I am so scared and beating myself up over this and I wish SO much I could go back in time and undo that..  I'm so scared I'll never be a mother because my husband and I have been trying for a baby for 8 months already and still haven't ovulated..  until this past May 11th..  And now it's like I'm slapping God in the face for giving me the gift of ovulation and the chance to have a baby..  Should I talk to my ob-gyn tomorrow?..  Is it too late?
Blank
1287618_tn?1282020802
2 shots of irish cream, and your not even sure if your pregnant... you should be fine. now if you knew for sure i still think you would be fine due to the baby being and embryo still. There are alot of mothers out in this world that drink like a fish while their pregant and smoke, and do drugs. It is definatly bad for the baby, and to be honest for the persons body doing it but, i think youll be ok. just keep track of your ovulation and if you dont start your period on time wait 2 weeks then take a test. and once you find out your are pregnant Stop drinking so that you will have a healthy baby.

peep773 - I agree with mamashelley1 - lots of ppl drink before they knew they were pregnant and still have healthy children, that being said I would stay away from alcohol until you know something for sure. Take care!!

My appt is tomorrow!! I am super excited to know whats going on in there lol!! It's the down syndrome screen and I'll be aroundabout 11weeks 5days  according to my last ultrasound...I think I'm more 11w 6 days but I also had 27 day cycles so I was missing my period as most ppl are waiting for theres lol!!! Pray that all goes good for me and Baby E's healthy!!! I'll pray for you guys too!!

Mommashelley - thanks, your prayers must have worked b/c baby E was measuring 12 weeks at 11w5d!! He/she was just a jumping and kicking and flipping around lol!! I have never seen anything like it!!! HB was 164!! I will be praying for you!!

Well, today I am 12 weeks and tomorrow I have to deal with the due date of my first baby...I don't know yet if it'll be hard, I wish in a way I could just skip over it. I loved the 1st baby and the 2nd as well, but I don't want to hurt this baby by greiving for the others. Any advice on how to handle this?

Be blessed and overjoyed (sp) that god gave you this love to share and that baby got to share love with you for however short of time, it was a blessed time. Be glad you got to share moments with that bundle of joy and be joyous to share the same and more with this baby. They will always be with you and watching over you and the new baby! think of the baby as an angel watching his/her brother or sister grow!

Just wanted to post a question. I am 5w5d and I went from having sore breast, fatigue, frequent unrination, and immense appetite to virtually no symptoms. My breast soreness has subsided as well as most of the other symptoms. Is this normal? I also have this impending sense of doom. I can't explain it it's almost to the point where I want to cry all the time.  I don't have a dr. appt for another 2 weeks and this is driving me nuts. I just want to feel normal, well I guess that's the problem I feel completely normal as if nothing happened. This is my second pregnancy but my last one was almost 13 years ago. I never had any problems and I can't remember how I'm supposed to feel anymore. Can someone give me a little insight please?
