Today I am 5 weeks 1 day. About a week and a half ago I had beginning symptoms (although very mild) like heartburn anod increased appetite. That was followed shortly by tender nipples and frequent urination and mild occasional cramps feelings.
For the last couple of days ALL of those symptoms have completely disappeared and I am trying not to freak out, but it’s so hard. I also made the mistake of googling missed miscarriages because I have no spotting or cramps.
Last Monday my hcg was at 175 and 48 hours later it was at 509, so I know last week everything was fine, but this week, I just keep getting this nagging doubt that something is wrong.
Has as anyone else had very mild symptoms early on that completely disappeared from time to time, but went on to have healthy pregnancies?

I have had NO symptoms my entire pregnancy, and I am almost 17 weeks. I am also extremely anxious about it, but hopefully my experience will make you feel better. Do not Google! Google is the mind killer! 🙂

There is another thread on this board about missing symptoms that helped me a lot, I am seven weeks and the nausea I have constantly for the last two is cometely gone… Enjoy it while you can is all I can say. Maybe get some hgc tests just to keep your self sane but from what I have heard it’s early for them to come and go

You’re still really early. My major symptoms didn’t even kick in until half way through my 6th week

Don’t worry, the symptoms come and go 🙂 I hope you have a happy and healthy nine months

@Karie: The only symptoms I had at 5 weeks was bloating and some cramping during the night, also increased hunger but I’m always hungry anyways so that wasn’t that different. Don’t worry, it’s still really early to feel a lot of symptoms, they’ll kick in soon.

Thank you for your kind words everyone. We had a really difficult time getting pregnant, and were told we may require IVF, but could try an IUI instead and see if we had success. Long story short, we were shocked to find out that we were pregnant beacuse we conceived naturally! I thought that once I had that BFP in my hands, all my stress and worry and sadness would go away, but I am finding that I just keep worrying about losing this baby after such an emotional journey.
I keep reading the September 14 Mamas thread and hearing all these girls talk about nausea and sensitive noses and food aversions and sore boobs and I keep thinking, what’s wrong with me?? How come I don’t have that? I know worrying does nothing, so I’m just going to try to relax this week and see what happens. If toward the end of the week, my nagging fears don’t go away, I can contact my doctor and ask for more bloodwork to ease my mind. Hopefully I will have good news in two weeks at my first ultrasound!

@Karie: The symptoms come and go, very common especially in the first trimester. For the first week after my BFP I had cramping, tender nipples, frequent urination. Those stopped after about a week, then around 6 weeks the nausea and extreme exhuastion kicked in. It was awful for 3 weeks or so, then stopped out of the blue completely (around the same time I fell down the stairs – cue freak out) then after a week of feeling great went back to feeling like dirt again until trimester 2 came around. I’m 33 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby.
It’s highly likely everything is just fine, so sit back and relax and enjoy the days where you feel good – horrible morning sickness could be right around the corner! (But I hope it isn’t!)
I know everyone is worried about MMCs and assumes a loss of symptoms means something is wrong, but plenty of people who have MMCs continue to have pregnancy symptoms. There is really no rhyme or reason to it.

@Karie: Like others have said your symptoms will come and go – im 30 weeks pregnant at the mo and besides being gigantic I dont have any pregnancy symptoms 😉
This thread pops up on the pregnancy boards all the time! I think I even wrote one just like it at 7 or 8 weeks. Some days youll feel fab others youll feel absolutely terrible. Enjoy the symptom free days while you can. Stressing about a loss is not ideal at all 😀 good luck!
ETA: If you look just a few threads down theres actually another one just like this…see, its common 😉

@Karie: This was one of my biggest fears during the early weeks. Mine came and went, came and went and I was SO anxious. Seriously anxious, hysterical at times. I also googled missed miscarriages and spent the majority of my time freaking out that was what had happened. But I’m now 12 weeks and everything is fine. I can’t count the number of times my symptoms have come and gone but everything is A-OK. When I did have symptoms, they were pretty mild – like car sickness nausea, no vomitting. My biggest and most consistant have been sore boobs up til about 10 weeks and extreme tiredness from about Week 9. Wishing you all the best!
