Am currently 15 weeks so only just moved over here from 1st tri. Am soooo glad to be in my safer 2nd tri but finding the lack of symptoms, lack of bump and not feeling any movement yet very unsettling. Had a very worrisome 1st tri with bleeding, early scans etc and though I was desperate to get past the 12 week mark and have a successful scan at least I had nausea, breast tenderness, tiredness etc to keep reassuring me I was actually pregnant! Now I don't feel pregnant at all and just keep wondering if bubs is actually ok in there. Have ordered a doppler to try and hear the heart beat at home but wondered if anyone has any other tips for coping with this 'in-betweeny' stage?
I felt the same way between 13-18 weeks. I didn't feel pregnant and didn't look pregnant. I only felt reassured at the doctors appointments when I got to hear the heartbeat. Unfortunatly I don't have any tips on how to relax, but I wanted to let you know, you are not alone in this feeling. Best I can say, is try to relax, because the chances are that everything is going to be fine and try to enjoy this time when you feel great.
Thanks ladies, is nice to know I am not the only one who feels like this! Have just received my doppler and is a-ma-zing! Hubby found the heartbeat really easily, was really easy to differentiate it from mine and has made me feel so much more reassured, worth every penny. Also I am a teacher and have been in contact with slapcheek so been worrying about that, blood test results came back today saying I'm immune so another weight off my mind. Can't wait for next midwife appointment next week now!
