I just wanted to repeat what some of the other ladies on here have said, as extra reassurance. Some women just don't get any or many symptoms, and even though you don't believe it at the time it does mean you are one of the lucky ones and doesn't mean anything bad is going to happen.
I hardly had any symptoms in tri1 and would prod my boobs frequently wishing they would be tender, or hoping to feel a bit of morning sickness even though I had some friends who suffered with it so badly that I shouldn't have been wshing it on myself - mad I know! My way of coping with the anxiety was I bought a doppler at around 10 weeks and could find baby's heartbeat from around 11-12 weeks, which put my mind at ease. Even now I've got a visible bump I still like to have a listen on the doppler every now and then just to make sure he/ she's still doing ok. I'll probably keep on doing this until I feel strong movements.
Try not to worry too much (even though I know from personal experience how hard that is)
Wanted to chime in here to say I never got any extra symptoms in first tri! I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for them to kick in and they never did. Only real thing that was different is that I was tired a lot more but if I hadn't known I was pregnant I wouldn't have thought anything of it!
It wasn't until second tri hit that my boobs really started aching (but only occasionally), started getting out of breath walking and got cramps and such (round ligament pain) to make me really feel like there is another being inhabiting my body lol.
So lack of symptoms can be completely normal! Try not to worry- easier said than done, I know.
Ladies I can't thank you enough for all this advice. I hope I can update this soon with good news and move over to the 2nd tri. Ps I love my name. Good luck and wishing all the new replies also a happy and healthy pregnancy xxx
I can honestly but sadly say there is no straight answer.
I had 5 MCs before my daughter and one between her and this pregnancy.
I was more ill with my last MC than with this pregnancy.
I CAN say that there is no real evidence to show that more symptoms means a better outcome.
Some women supposedly never miscarry and sail through their pregnancies with few symptoms. Some women suffer terribly and have a baby at the end. Some suffer terribly and suffer preterm birth and gestational complications.
There is no straight answer
I do know how hard it is to cope with the fears and anxiety after misacarriages. You really do have to take each day as it comes and try not to dwell, no matter how hard that can be
Hi hun, I didnt have any symptoms till around 20/24 weeks with my first 2 girls then SPD with my son from around 16 weeks and this time my SPD told me I was pregnant before a test did. but over all no symptoms really till around 2nd tri (other than mild nausia with my son) and I find that looking for confirmation symptoms makes any you that have kinda disappear xxx
