I’m 5 weeks pregnant, we got married in February but have been together a decade and trying to have children for over 4 years, we’ve suffered 5 previous miscarriages, 3 very early, 2 miss miscarriages around the 7 week mark. We’ve had tests. I have pcos and now take 2000mg of metformin daily, I also use 2x200mg of cyclogest pessaries everyday and when I have a scan next Thursday if everything is shown to be intrauterine I will start daily clexane injections, the clexane is the only new addition to my regime in pregnancy.
I’m scared to death. Every cramp, twinge, headache feels like it spells disaster and as I’ve never had a successful pregnancy I don’t know what, from previous pregnancies, signalled all being well and what signified upcoming disaster.
I had a migraine a few days ago, I always get them at the start of my period so it feels like a bad sign.
Then I had diarrhoea badly last night which I decided was probably a bad sign too but I guess could be all the meds.
Anyone suffer migraines or diarrhoea in pregnancy and have a baby at the end of it?

Aww I’m sorry this is so stressful bee! I went through 2 rounds of IVF to get pregnant (first round was an early miscarriage) and am now 28 weeks pregnant. I definitely had diarrhea and indigestion in early pregnancy. When I was taking hormone injections for IVF I got migraines for the first time in my life! I think it was from estrogen surge. Hormones can cause both of those symptoms for sure. I’m really hoping this is your rainbow baby! Best of luck to you!

I truly think there is no way to know or predict. The only symptom of my MMC was a teeny tiny bit of brown spotting. My next pregnancy, I woke up in a pool of blood and was sure I was miscarrying again. I went in for an ultrasound and they “couldnt tell what they were seeing.” That pregnancy turned out fine, and resulted in my daughter. All you can do is try to fill yourself with love for your fetus and your husband and every moment you have together. Your symptoms are not abnormal for a healthy pregnancy. Fingers crossed this is your take-home baby.
