I can't help but worry, must just be my nature, and the fact that things have gone south for me before. I went to a 6 week appointment and they found the fetus with a heatbeat (but didn't measure it), all on track. I have yet to truly have morning sickness (I'm 9 weeks Saturday), and the only major symptoms I have are tiredness, hungry every couple of hours, peeing in the middle of the night, and very sore breasts. I'm just hoping everything is still going well.
I certainly don't WISH for m/s, but I can't help but feel a little worried that at 9 weeks I have such few symptoms. I go to my next appointment on Monday--hoping all is well!!
I hope my story helps! I have 3 kids, and with each of them (progressively worse) I was sick as a dog first trimester. Miserable. Barely functioning. I've also had 3 losses, so in my mind, for ME, healthy pregnancy = severe nausea, sore boobs, etc... This pregnancy I have had some nausea but not every day, and not overwhelming. My nipples are a little tender sometimes but I can push on my boobs with no pain. I'm tired, but also not sleeping great (anxiety) and I have 3 kids and at least some of us have been sick with viruses since before my BFP. I'm also on Prometrium 200 mg orally at night so my symptoms could be side effects of that. I went in for an u/s yesterday expecting the worse. I had to fight back tears the whole drive to the office. And you know what I saw? A perfect healthy little bean measuring 6 days ahead of LMP with a good strong heart rate in the 160's. Turns out every pregnancy really IS different. It IS possible to be sick sick sick with some pregnancies and near symptom-less with others and everything can still be fine. Who knows why? But I know it happened to me! I know when you have a history of problems you feel the need to brace yourself for the worst. That's certainly how I felt 24 hours ago. But I just want to reassure you that it is possible everything is just fine! So try not to stress, assume the best until you have proof there is a problem. I know the fear creeps up on you, but when it does, remember my story and have hope!!
I hardly ever have any pregnancy symptoms, never any morning sickness, with any of my pregnancies. Mostly just some fatigue, and look at all those kids in my siggy. LOL. Some women just have very mild symptoms, and I guess I am one of the lucky ones.
Try not to worry. I know its hard. Even with my history I am still worried about my lil one. I haven't had an appt yet, so I haven't seen or heard the heart beat, and I am 12 weeks. My first appt is next Friday!
