I've lost my symptoms

And I realized I am terrified.

In my 7th weeks, I felt nauseated. And I was exhausted. And now? Well, nothing.

I saw the heartbeat 6 days ago. And since then, nothing. I haven't felt anything. My breasts are kindof sore. But not incredibly so like they were.

Good lord. I just took the time to acknowledge how freaked out I am. And I am.

I lost all symptoms around 7W myself. You've been through this before. They come and go, and every time it's scary and hell but you'll get through it. (((((HUGS)))))

Aww...I'm sorry Nancy!!! I hope you get your pg symptoms back!!

Sharon said...

Willing to swap - I'm nauseated and exhausted.

Seriously though Nancy if you are really worried call your doc. A quick scan will reassure you.

Sending good thoughts.

I hope it's just one of those things where every pregnancy is different.
I agree with Sharon- call your doc & get a quick peek if you can.

{hugs}

I wish I could give you some advise, but I can't... What I will say though is that I pray they come back and you can continue to breathe easy.

I freaked out when I lost my symptoms for 2 days and everyone assured me that they come and go. I did end up getting m/s back in full swing. If you are concerned call your doctor, hopefully they can reassure you. I totally understand, everything scares me!

anne said...

lost my symptoms at 7 weeks, too, in my first pregnancy...and it was a boy! (just saying)

I did call my dr., though. (they said no symptoms unless accompanied by cramping/bleeding is not a symptom of miscarriage). You know all these things, I'm sure.

MrsSpock said...

Are you going to call to get it checked out? Hope everything is OK...

Deb said...

Oh honey call the doc if your that concerned (and it sounds like you are). Dont freak yourself out thinking the worst - make the call.

When I was 10w with #2, all my symptoms disappeared overnight. I totally freaked out about it, even though I knew rationally that I shouldn't. I told my doc and she offered to do a quick u/s for me for reassurance. I felt so much better when I saw that baby moving around and the heart beating away. I'll bet you are fine, but if you are stressing, call your doc. You've been through enough, you don't need to deal with any more worry or stress.

As much as symptoms can suck, they are reassuring. More than likely it isn't a bad sign, but of course you already know that and it doesn't stop the worrying!

On the baby tattoos, my friend bought them someplace in Olympia, but I figured they must be on ebay too. Sure enough. If you go there now and look up item 300234391278 there they are. $4.95 with $2.95 shipping. Or just type in baby tattoos in the search bar.

I'm impressed...pregnant and getting tattoos. You have a high tolerance for pain! Despite my hubby and his full sleeves, I don't have one single tattoo. Maybe someday. In the meantime, we look like a bit of an odd couple.

Sending you good thoughts. Wish I could dispell some of what I think is a hangover on you. At least for peace of mind and all. ;)

Call the doc. No need to sit around worrying and wasting your time on something when you can be reassured quickly! You are in my thoughts Nancy!

Wordgirl said...

Oh Nancy, I just read your post -- I would agree with seeing if you can get a scan -- just to reassure you.

My thoughts and love are with you,

Pam

:( I remember freaking out when I lost my symptoms, but finally realized it's normal. Hang in there, but if you're really worried, call the doc - no reason to sit worried when they could do a quick u/s for you. (((hugs)))

Lori said...

Did this happen with your other two pregnancies?

Sending you good thoughts, Nancy.

Earl Gearl said...

Symptoms come and go. I hope yours come back soon.

JamieD said...

I am so sorry . . . who else but IFers would understand WANTED to be sick and exhaused?!?!

When is your next appt? Could they get you in for a quick scan?

Thinking of you . . .

Who ever thought we would actually feel good about puking?

Yaz said...

I totally understand what you are going through. My symptoms have come and gone for the last 9 weeks. You'll get through it. Every pregnancy is different.
