A week ago I was feeling terrible… I had awful cramps like period pains for about 3 days as well as nausea and sore boobs. I did a test which told me I was 3+ weeks pregnant (doctor would say 5+) which was the maximum the test would show. I have no idea how far along I actually am as I had irregular periods since taking out my contraceptive implant in October. I continued to have these intense cramps and nausea for about 5 more days. I’ve not had any bleeding.
Anyways, for the last couple of days I’ve not felt pregnant. I’m worried something is wrong but I don’t get to see anyone about my pregnancy until I see the midwife in a week… and in any case if something is wrong I know there’s nothing anyone can do.
I guess I just wanted to now if this has happened to anyone else and what happened? I don’t want to worry about this but I’m sick of having no one to talk to! :'(

truthah: I can only speak from personal experience, but when I was newly pregnant I had the same symptoms as you. Just felt like my period would start at any moment, but it never did. Then, that feeling went away and a couple weeks later the morning sickness started. Have you taken another pregnancy test? I know it’s so hard not to worry, but you are probably fine. Check with you doc if you are really worried.

truthah: I agree with the previous poster – take another pregnancy test just to reassure yourself, but I’m just under 5wks pregnant and have basically zero symptoms.

Symptoms come and go. A lack of symptoms is not indicative of an issue with the baby. But if you are worried call your doctor to see if they can check you hormone levels to ensure everything is ok.

truthah: Symptoms come and go. When I first found out I was pregnant I had zero symptoms other than what felt like usual before-period discomfort. That feeling went away at some point, and I freaked out. But I felt great, but was worried something was wrong – so I took more tests! Then at 6 weeks BAM: nausea, food aversions, exhaustion.
You’re right that there’s nothing you can do but just hope for the best, and take another pregnancy test. I took lots of them #noshame.

One thing that helped me in early pregnancy was that as your hormones increase, you will have some days where the symptoms are crazy intense. Your body does catch up, however, and so you will feel less pregnant.
I’m 18 weeks, and if I wasn’t feel the odd kick here-and-there, I wouldn’t even know I was pregnant. It just depends on how your body is absorbing the hormones.

You need to just relax. I had like 1 day of symptoms (it was around 6 weeks) before 8 weeks but otherwise I felt entirely normal. After 8 weeks is a different story
But if you really don’t know when your last period was (or if you have very long cycles) you should see your doctor here in the next few weeks to get a dating ultrasound.

as pps have said, symptoms come and go. i didn’t have any symptoms until about 10 weeks.
we had gone through 2 years of infertility treatment. so after a positive beta, i had weekly monitoring to make sure everything was progressing. those waits between appointments were harder than the actual TWW wait between transfer and first beta.
i understand your frustration, but know that the odds are in your favor. take another pregnancy test to reassure yourself that everything is ok.
