Early pregnancy – is it normal for symptoms to come and go?

@PinkPandaBear:  I’m not pregnant, but I’ve heard a lot of women say that pregnancy symptoms do come and go, even in healthy pregnancies. I think FMU is also not necessarily the gold standard for testing – your afternoon/evening urine actually might be more concentrated and get you a darker line. FX for a sticky baby! But I don’t think either of these things are necessarily the sign of impending doom.

@PinkPandaBear:  1- make sure it’s the pregnancy line getting lighter, not the control line. My Control line got lighter because the prego line was pulling the dye. It might not have stuck, or the hormones were more diluted because you drank more or less water. You really can’t know for sure immediatly. Wait 3-4 days and test and you’ll know more. I know it’s impossible to think about anything else, but there isn’t really anything you can do besides wait and see.

Well I did not find out I was pregnant until after 8 weeks.  Before that (looking back) I can see a few symptoms but they were very hit or miss.  Two days in a row I was so hungry in the AM I felt nauseated.  But then I would be fine the next week.  One day I slept 12+ hours but didn’t have any unusual tiredness after that.  It’s also possible I didn’t pay attention to little little symptoms because I thought I was NOT pregnant. 

I did not have strong symptoms (regular MS and fatigue) until about 7-9 weeks pregnant.  But then mine lasted until 15-16 weeks before (mostly) going away.

 

I don’t think there’s any big “normal” when it comes to symptoms.

THIS, +1000. Every pregnancy is different – there is so much variety, even heredity has only limited predictive value. My sister and I have been like night and day as far as our symptoms go.

I know it’s easier said than done, because I was there, but try not to fret, at this point there is nothing you can do if the pregnancy isn’t sticking. I had a rather symptomless pregnancy and at around 9 weeks those symptoms went away. I had myself convinced that I was suffering a missed miscarriage, went for an ultrasound, and everything was a-okay. I’m currently 20 weeks and have a healthy baby girl kicking around in there.

@awakemysoul:  thank you so much for putting that. I am at 9 weeks now and feel fine. My morning sickness was brief and just mild nausa (no actual vomiting). My boobs sorted them selves out and I feel good. BUT that just makes me worried! It’s crazy. I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks and it was fine. Just nice to hear others that don’t feel awful at 9 weeks still be prego.

@PinkPandaBear:  Do not fret about the line, different test lots will have variations (in dye) so they can appear lighter/darker and it is due to the manufacturing. Also it can always depend when the last time you peed, and how much/what kind of fluids you’ve been taking in. My second test line was rather choppy and I’m still KU.

My symptoms came and went as they pleased. One day I would feel like crap the next day I felt just fine and was worried because I didn’t ‘feel’ pregnant. I would feel like crap again the next day and have a ‘WTH was I thinking’ moment.

It is normal for this to happen. It is also normal for it not to happen, have all the symptoms, have no symptoms…..

My boobs started getting sore about a week before my period was “supposed” to start. Then the week i was supposed to have had it it kind of came and went. I had the same concerns after I finally tested and got my BFP, as my boob pain came and went, my nausea came and went, and then on week 6 the MS hit me like a mac truck. It didn’t go away much for about two weeks, and then it finally started to subside around the end of 7, which freaked me out. We finally had our first US at week 8 and got the heartbeat. After that I’ve felt a lot calmer, and am happy not to have nausea 🙂
