Aw sweety! Congrats πŸ™‚ I had no symptoms at first either! I didn’t think I was pregnant and still had doubts until I saw the baby at the sonogram haha. I’m sure everything is perfect with you. I had and still have a lot of fears about miscarriage as well. My advice to you is don’t tell anyone you’re pregnant unless you’re comfortable with confiding in them that you’ve miscarried as well. We still haven’t told a lot of our friends and extended family, and we’re out of the first trimester! Each person is different, take it easy, make sure YOU are comfortable and have fun!

Congratulations again! Have you calculated your due date yet? πŸ™‚

Congratulations!

I am experiencing something similar. A lot of people around us have miscarried lately and it makes me nervous. I deal by trying to stay calm and positive, and ensure that I do everything that’s in my power to have a healthy pregnancy. If I do miscarry, I won’t be able to blame myself.

I have symptoms that come and go, and I guess it would reassure me, too, to get all symptoms very strong. But we’re all different…

I wouldn’t have known I was pregnant if not for the missed period.

What you are feeling is so normal.

When I found out I was pregnant, I was consumed with worry. I would read into every twinge and I would think about it all the time. I also didn’t let myself beleive that it was real for fear that I would lose it.

My only advice is to try to stay of google. When you look online, it seems like everyone is miscarrying, but that is not really the case. I found some comfort in the statistics and I tried to aviod alot of the miscarriage posts on message boards. I knew that there was nothing I could do to prevent it, so I tried to keep my anxiety under control the best I could. I think knowing that “whatever will happen, will happen” almost makes it harder. You feel powerless and like you are just waiting to see.

Now that I just started my 2nd trimester I can finally put some of this worry aside. But as someone who has just been there….and spent 3 months worrying all the time, I really feel for you

Congrats!! It may just be too soon to have symptoms yet. How many weeks along are you? And some women just don’t really have too many symptoms. Everyone is different. Try not to worry (I know it is hard to do!) and just take care of yourself. Good luck at your appt. next week!! πŸ™‚

Congrats!! I also didn’t have any symptoms (beyond peeing a lot) until I was maybe 6 or so weeks along.  I was worried about not having symptoms, but then once the queasiness came I realized not having symptoms wasn’t such a bad thing πŸ™‚

@Tisty1982:  Congratulations!  To echo PP, what you are feeling is totally normal.  This is probably Too Much Information, but for several weeks after the positive HPT, I checked my undies for blood every single time I went to the bathroom.  I found myself wanting to take another HPT all the time, just to prove it was real – but I didn’t.  As every week goes by, you will feel better and worry less.  Hitting the second trimester was a huge relief.

My advice is to do whatever you can to not worry: do some yoga, take a long walk, watch your favorite movie.  Worrying will not help you or the baby one bit!  Think positive, happy thoughts.

And FWIW, I didn’t really have any symptoms until 8 weeks!

Congrats! The fears don’t go away; it’s just something that pregnant women deal with. Try not to freak yourself out too much and remember to do kick counts when you get to week 28.

Congrats !!!

I know how you feel. Im 25 1/2 weeks and Im still nervous. I found out i was pregnant at 6 weeks and i didnt start getting ill until i was around 8 weeks… even then i had a hard time beleiving it. I constantly check for bleeding also.

I also have an anterior placenta which stops you from feeling the baby move as much as someone else would feel theirs… that really didnt help either.

I agree with TheFutureMcBride i dont think it ever stops..
