8w 4d today. Yesterday i noticed that my breasts are not really sore anymore (which they have been up until now).
I've had 2 previous mc's & with my last one it was around now that my boobs started to feel fine & then a week later i lost the baby.
i cant help just worrying so much by this!
has anyone else had their breast pain cone & go? If so, was your outcomes good or bad?

Hi, I'm going through the same I had a mc at 17 + weeks in December 2010! I'm now 11 weeks and 5days. All sickness, tiredness and sore boobs stopped last tuesday and I just don't feel pregnant anymore. My scan is the 34th and oh is telling me to go and see my doctor if I'm worried but they will just say wait for your scan, in petrified as done the good old Google search and it ssting I could be having a missed mc, I would be devastated to go to the scan and there be no heart beat or an empty sac, I'm even to scared to do a pregnancy test just incase! maybe as you have a little wait for your scan contact your oc and explain your worry a they may request you to go for an early scan. x

Didn't want to read and run but I don't really have an answer
I've honestly heard good and bad things from this situation. If I were you, present at A&E and ask for a scan. You've got nothing to lose - the worst they can say is no.
The only positive thing I can think is that sore boobs comes and goes. As for you Vicky, you're near the point that those things would start settling down anyway?
SW - please see someone asap to check this out. It's probably that you're being super watchful over all your symptoms cos of the heartbreak you've suffered. All this worry won't be doing your stress levels any good. Please. And please keep us posted. I have got everything crossed for you hun xxx

Thanks both. I had my 8 week scan on friday & everything was perfect so because of that my doc wont see me again until my next apt on the 9th march... Unless i have cramping or bleeding... Which i'm not... Just some backache & a full / pressure feeling in my uterus. I'm hoping to god all that is normal & just trying to stay calm & not think negatively for now. If i do get cramping or spotting then i will def go to the hospital... Although i know by that point it'll prob be too late.

I'm pregnant with my third baby so hopefully my experience can help. I had two miscarriages before I fell pregnant with my first son. Unfortunately the worry will never go away. Even when you've had a successful pregnancy. I do remember thinking that I didn't feel pregnant until my first scan At 11 weeks. My boobs stopped hurting at around 8 weeks and I had nothing to suggest I was pregnant. The only thing I held on to was having no bleeding or cramps. I then didn't really start to feel pregnant again until I started showing and feeling the first flutters of movement. It is such a hard time once you've been through a miscarriage. And you would think once you can feel movements that there would be no need to worry but it gets replaced by a whole new set of worries of has the baby moved enough today and I can't remember feeling a kick for awhile.
It is easier said than done but try not to worry. No symptoms isn't necessarily a bad thing. They come and go all the time and you may just be having an easy few days before they come back full force. I definitely remember never feeling like I was glowing!!
The other thing about boobs is they don't really need to develop until later in the pregnancy. The initial pain is your body adjusting to hormones and then later on its about getting your milk supply ready.
Anyway hope my ramblings have helped a little. Good luck to you!!

Wow, i think Rach2186 has nailed it. You never stop worrying (i had msc too after a perfectly healthy pregnancy) and then went on to have another baby after the msc - you just can't let it go, so I think you have to try and accept the worry.
Sure once you reach certain milestones, the fear levels drop, but like you, i never ever felt sick,was never ever sick,I had terribly sore boos that came and went, but with my third pregnancy, i never had the stabbing pains in my uterus (which i later knew was the msc during second preg) and it was different.
Just hang in there for your next appointment, and should you have any period like pains, that's when you go to A&E for an emergency scan - or you call your early pregnancy unit at the hosp and insist on a scan sooner. Please try and keep cool. No reason this bean shouldnt be the sticky one x

Thankyou SO MUCH rach & mrsg... your stories havevreally been a reassurance to read x
19/02/2015 at 17:26
Yes, Rach and MrsG's replies seem to make loads of sense and having some previous experience there is a lot more helpful too!! You're doing great SW2, hang in there chick. Once you get past these next few weeks and have a healthy 12 week scan that should reassure you, the risks plummet dramatically and then when you start feeling it moving around you'll be able to relax. Keep us posted xx

In need of some advice to hopefully calm me down. I am 7weeks and I had an early scan 4 days ago, everything was fine at the scan, healthy heartbeat. Yesterday I had a bit of dicharge that was bloody, I phoned the midwife department at the hospital and I am booked in 2 days time for another scan. Today though is the first day in around a month that my breasts have not been in agony when I woke up. The bleeding and the lack of sore breasts has me worried now. Has anyone been through similar?

Hi chidl88. How did your scan today go? I hope everything is ok. Bresat pain going away doesn't necessarily mean bad news.... Yes, with my 2 mc's my breast pain did go away prior to miscarrying.... But it also came & went with my healthy pregnancy too... I freaked out about it but everything was fine. Keeping everything crossed for you

Hi SW2, everything went great :) saw the little heartbeat beating away and all is well, so happy I cried so much, it is all so very overwhelming. Thank you for asking
