I am pertrified that I will or have misscarried.
Now I never had any bleeding or massive cramps.
But i have had cramps… small ones… they kinda actually hurt. They were always in the lower abdomen. I was continuesly told that that kind of cramping was normal-its your uterus stretching to make room (im 12 weeks). We have yet to have an ultrasound or hear the babies heart beat ( first ultrasound is on thursday this week). I am so scared that something has gone wrong.
I continue to have my morning sickness and sore breats… but i read somewhere through google ( i know , i know.. google is not a doctor) that Nausea can actually be another sign of miscarrage.
I feel like my tummy is changing… stuff is shifting… all of a sudden (*WARNING TMI*) even sex feels different.. like something might be slighty in the way… I dont know… I would love to hear from other women who felt/feel like this… is it normal at this stage that I dont really FEEL pregnant??

Well you have more symptons than I do! ha! I had the cramping for a couple of weeks & this week nothing. I’m 7wks 4days & can NOT wait til I”m where you are at the lovely 12wk mark! This week I don’t feel pregnant at all! Boobs are ok this week, I have started having some lightheadedness a few days this week, but also read that is normal. You will feel better on Thursday when you have your u/s & see that baby bean & it’s heart beating away! Try asking your mom how she felt if that is an option. It might give you some insight to what you are feeling. I have never had MS ~ but my mom didn’t either so I don’t worry about that part.
Hang in there! It is so hard & very normal to worry!

Hang in there, I’m sure all is normal.
I don’t see how nausea could be a sign of miscarriage though. Don’t like 90% of women have morning sickness? That wouldn’t really work if they all were loosing the pregnancy.

I think being paranoid throughout pregnancy is totally natural and getting us ready to be moms… my best advice – DO NOT google! I stopped very early on in my pregnancy because there is just so much info out there and a lot of it incorrect.
I had minor cramps at the beginning and all sorts of other odd body-changing feelings. Just try to stay calm and relaxed until Thursday!

Just relax and be calm. It’s hard not knowing, but the best thing for you and the baby is just to go through your day. I’ve been sick too, but it’s just part of the pregnancy. And to counter the miscarriage thing, I’ve also read and been told that being sick means a healthy baby. Good luck on Thursday. Let us know how it goes.

I thought I was really weird at that stage too. We had an 8 week apt, but couldn’t get the heartbeat and I didn’t feel pregnant. I took about 6 preg tests between when we found out and our ultrasound at 11 weeks. It was nice to be reassured that I was still pregnant until I saw it for real on the screen.

Those are rational fears to have but I have heard cramping is normal as long as you have no bleeding. Sweetie I am in my 2ww, well 7 days to go and I am scared every day that if I yell, stress, walk wrong or jump the wrong way, a possible pregnancy won’t take. I think alot of ladies early in pregnancy have that fear until they see it right in front of them on that screen. Hope you have a wonderful appt on Thursday!!! Just try and relax! 🙂

Glad to hear everything is ok!!
Just a warning – You’re a mom now and you’ll be worrying about the little one for the rest of your life 🙂
For me I didn’t worry too much (above normal) during the pregnancy but I always got nervous the day or 2 before EVERY doc appt!
Now I worry every night when I put him to sleep. Every time we drive somewhere in a car. That little fear that something bad might happen is my constant companion 🙂 Not that it consumes my thoughts or changes the way I live… but it’s there and I say many extra prayers.
It’s what mommy’s do!
