Hi hun... firstly I know its easier to say than do, but try not to worry! I spent my whole first trimester in a high state of panic and it just didn't do me any good at all!
I think I did about 14 pregnancy tests in the first 9 weeks, eventually gave in and had a private scan - to prove to myself I actually was pregnant. And then the next worry was the 12 week scan etc...
My worst symptom was tiredness, but only really late at night. I had slightly tender boobs, but only when they were touched and obviously noticed they were getting a bit bigger. I think this started about 8 weeks onwards. I had some queasiness on occasion, but never was actually sick at all - although there was one situation around 12 weeks with some pancakes and I thought I was going to, but managed to keep it down!
Hey.... I think you are going to be one of the lucky ones!!
I got symptoms from day one but thought I had the flu!! I was sick, body ached (especially my breasts!! They felt like they were on fire!!) I couldn't eat or even drink water and had to take 2 months of work in the end because I couldn't even get out of bed due to nausea!
Remember to relax and try not to stress, I know it's hard because even though I went through all that sickness for 4 months (it's gone now) I still had to do pregnancy tests and even went to the EPU to see babies heartbeat before I was convinced I was pregnant.
Ladies thank you so much you have been amazing. This forum has been so comforting. I really do appreciate all your comments and have taken them on board. Very reassuring. I want to wish you all the very best with your pregnancies. Wishing you all a safe quick delivery too. THANK YOU xx
Weeks 8 - 15 I experienced ms. But some women never get it, I only wish I was that lucky! So, even if you don't experience certain symptoms, try not to worry hun. I'm sure all will be well. Sending lots of good thoughts for you and baby. :-)
If you think about it a certain way your anxiety and extra emotions can also be a symptom. I lost five babies before getting my first DD, and for some reason was so calm and assured with her. This time around (seven years later) I was a freaked-out wreck, but go figure, no morning sickness like with my first. To this day I have only barfed exactly 7 times, and none of it was before the first 10 weeks or so.
I had no symptoms only tiredness- slightly sore nipples but only like before a period... They definitely kick in later for some or you could get lucky!! Try not to worry!!
P.S hope you like your name as we're calling our baby girl Maddie xx
