Hey bees, looking for some reassurance-
I’m 8w2d today and I woke up just feeling off. I haven’t bled or anything and heard a heartbeat of 154 last Tuesday at 7w4d, but I’ve noticed a drop in symptoms today. Up until now, I haven’t had a lot of morning sickness, just some queasiness (almost like car sickness) when I’d get hungry (and I’d get hungry more frequently). I should be ravenous by now (especially since I haven’t eated since 4pm yesterday and its 12:30pm) and I have no hunger and no queasiness.
Have any bees had symptoms drop like that around this time and gone on to have successful pregnancies? I’ve been stressing myself out reading about missed miscarriages and have seen 1000 horror stories, so I’m looking for reassuring ones. I realize that the internet is full of people who go online to stress/vent/grieve, and so you get a concentrated number of these horror stories, so I’m hoping to hear from women who have had positivie experiences with this.

This was me last week. In the middle of my 8th week of pregnancy my symptoms just tapered off. Nausea subsided, fatigue improves, bloating decreased. I was so nervous that something was wrong even though I had a perfect US at 7w5d. Luckily, I had an OB appointment and told her my worries so she took a quick peak at baby using the ultrasound and everything was totally fine! I saw the heart flickering on the screen and everything. So, it’s totally normal for symptoms to improve around this time because the placenta is kicking in and starting to do a lot of the work so hormones are changing. Hang in there and try not to worry too much!

NightOwl27 : This is SO good to hear- thank you!!! Its crazy, you know? Like you spend all this time stressing just to get to this point. I remember thinking “I’ll feel so much better once I’m finally pregnant.” Then pregnancy is just a rollercoaster (especially this first trimester) when you question every little thing- its worse than the TWW by 100 times!

If you want reassurance, schedule an appointment. The OB/ staff will not be annoyed for wanting confirmation that everything is still going well in your pregnancy.
I had minimal symptoms during my pregnancy. I vomited once during the first trimester and was nauseous a couple of times. I had an easy pregnancy (I rarely felt my child move, even in the last months). The only major issue I had was fatigue, but that was probably due to undiagnosed lupus at that time.
You might be one of us lucky ones that have an easy pregnancy.

ksks9876 : She doesn’t have any upcoming ones before my next appointment on the 13th :/ I LOVE her and have been with her through a lot, but that’s just really frustrating.

I remember having days early on like that where my symptoms would completely disappear! I also freaked out but they usually returned after a few days. Baby was fine. Just try to enjoy the break in symptoms! I did a lot of reading on it and it’s very common for symptoms to ebb and flow. I know it’s still scary but the statistics are heavily in your favor for a healthy pregnancy now that you have seen the heartbeat!

With DS my symptoms disappeared around 7 or 8 weeks and I was so worried, but then they came back with a vengeance around 9/10 weeks. I looked up stuff and asked my doctor because I was nervous, and learned that it’s not uncommon to lose symptoms for a week or two around that time.

I’m 17 weeks now. During my first trimester, most of the time I was nauseous every day. Most of the time, my breasts ached like crazy. Most of the time I had all the typical symptoms. But there were a few days when I’d wake up and feel great. No symptoms at all. It was scary to feel good for a change but so far my baby has been healthy at every appointment and she’s still hanging out with me.
I don’t think it’s unusual for symptoms to vary BUT if you are worried, at least call your dr or send a message through your patient portal if you have that.

Seeing a heartbeat is huge and greatly reduces your chances of the pregnancy failing. My symptoms came and went for the first trimester and it freaked me out. One day I’d be so sick then for a few days wouldn’t feel pregnant at all, I’d read everything I could find. I finally found some good Facebook groups that really helped me realize what I was experiencing was totally normal. I currently have a healthy almost 6 week old softly snorting in my lap. 😍

I lost my symptoms at 9 weeks and I was worried about the baby too. I had a scan at 10 weeks and baby was growing properly and had a strong heartbeat ☺️ Some symptoms have come back but not as strong or as frequent. Good luck, it’s a nerve wracking time ❤️

Around 7.5 weeks I woke up with my symptoms gone. I took another pregnancy test and the line seemed lighter. I freaked and my dr scheduled an HCG test. My numbers did not double.
My 6 month old is napping upstairs. Don’t worry!

Hi! I had no symptoms at all. I only found out I was pregnant, coz I missed my period. I kept having no symptoms at all and people kept being negative, saying these were miscarriage signs. My gynecologist assured me that, that was not the case. Today I hold my 2month old son in my arms and couldnt be happier!
Good luck with your pregnancy and hope you hold a healthy baby! Xx

Thanks guys!!!!! I messaged my dr on the patient portal and will hopefully hear something by tomorrow afternoon. Super nervous still but a little more optimistic than I was before 🙂

Yep, totally happens. My baby is currently cooing at me from her swing turns out even though I didn’t “feel” pregnant, I still very much was.

I’m 17 weeks pregnant. Symptoms come and go. Especially where you are in pregnancy. I’m still dealing with some nausea and am more tired than pre-pregnancy. I’ve reached a point where I am happy when I feel good.
