Anxiety is getting to me. Based on LMP I should be 8 weeks. Since baby measured smaller at last appt I'm getting anxiety thinking about my upcoming appt Friday. We had a heartbeat but I'm still panicking. Other than peeing a lot, being hungry, cranky, and sleepy I have basically zero pregnancy symptoms. Am I being paranoid? No bleeding or spotting. Or cramping for that matter. No breast tenderness. But also no history of high risk pregnancy or miscarriage. Sigh. Why can't I just enjoy this time? i had almost no symptoms with my daughter too but i had some cramping, and not so much this time… ughghghghghhghg can it be friday?
Me! Just had my OB appt today and we talked about my lack of symptoms. She said the only symptom she's concerned with (as far as the viability of the pregnancy goes) is spotting. Aside from that she doesn't put much stock in symptoms. Once you see a HB the chance of miscarriage is slim so I'd say you're good! I can understand the concern. Even though I would love to feel this awesome throughout the first trimester it is a bit disconcerting.
I am sorry girl. I am in the same boat. I have had nausea hit for a couple minutes here and there, but only a handful of times. I am more emotional and tired. And I have been crampy, but that is it. Last time by now i had extreme nausea and vomiting at times too and horrible heartburn and sore bbs. Ny first sono is tomorrow and i am hoping all is well. You saw a healthy lil bean! I bet you are just lucky this pregnancy. I have friends who had zero symptoms until 10weeks or more. One actually went the entire pregnancy with nothing other than aches and increased urination.
I know it is disconcerting... I had a ONE day when my nausea seemed to vanish and it scared me- but then it came back. I should have enjoyed the reprieve! Try not to worry- you saw a healthy little one with a heartbeat- enjoy feeling good this time around.

My first 4 pregnancies I breezed through the first trimester and they were all healthy
This time I have an over abundance of sxs and I'm mostly miserable. Try to enjoy feeling great. I can't wait to feel better.
Me! My last pg I was so nauseous for 6 weeks straight, I wanted to hide under a rock, I couldn't smell anything without gagging. This time around I have only had a few days of nausea, but I also stopped my prenatal with iron because those were the culprit. I also cannot brush my tongue which was just like last time.
Me, too. My symptoms are off and on, mostly off. I haven't had any appointments yet, and I have to keep convincing myself that of course it's a viable pregnancy. I was also completely symptom-free last time until 10 weeks, so I don't know why I'm so worried this time (actually, I think I was worried last time too, lol). First appointment on Jan 16 cannot come soon enough (even though I'm not sure we'll be able to hear a hb at only 8 weeks).
I don't have many either! But apparently I am just lucky because all my pregnancies are this way. I used to pray for morning sickness or anything lol but now I feel good about it because having to work and deal with two other kiddos would be hell if I were sick! My sympathies to all the sick mommies! I have nausea when I don't eat for a long time but even that is mild. And other than my crappy attitude I wouldn't know I was pg at all. Im ready to snap at any moment lol
you should definitely hear a heartbeat at 8 weeks… i heard my baby's heartbeat at 6w! fingers crossed!!
i had pretty much no symptoms with my daughter either.. other than food cravings and tender breasts, pretty much throughout my entire pregnancy so i dont understand why im freaking out. but i cant help it.. maybe i should stop the prenatals too? my dr recommended i stop them but i didnt because i have the worst aversion to meat and i havent had any protein in about a week. so gross.. i live on cereal and carrots mainly lol. so should i stop the prenatals? hmm...
I only feel sick when I take my progesterone. On the days I wait to take it I feel almost normal. So I wouldn't worry about the lack of symptoms. I've had several pregnancies where that was the case. Of course it's easier said than done when talking about not worrying! When is your next appointment?
my next ultrasound is this coming friday, the 10th… so nervous… i swear i wont be able to calm down until i hit my second trimester god willing… when does this get easier? lol.. i dont remember being this paranoid with my daughter..
I hate you all!!!! lol! You are one of the lucky ones that are blessed to have a pregnancy without the horrid symptoms. I am so sick. It is miserable But I was very sick with my son as well. I think every woman reacts differently to the changes and hormones with pregnancy.
My cousin had a symptom free pregnancy last time. She always talked about how amazing she felt and how perfect her pregnancy was. She had the "glow" everyone talks about. She is pregnant a second time and it is completely different. She is so sick and miserable. So she has experienced both sides and she said she is never getting pregnant again! lol.
Thanks Kiliki for the siggie!
