I know this may sound silly and for days I've wanted to post but thought I'd sound like a fool but I'm driving myself nuts.
I'm just over 9 weeks pregnant and ive been worried that I've not been feeling pregnant more and more, with the last few days being the worst. This is my fourth and I've never really had pregnancy symptoms before and its not caused be any concerns however this pregnancy I've had symptoms and now they seemed to have settled or gone I'm worried.
I'm older this time and i work 12-13hr shifts where I don't have time to eat or drink some days coz I'm running around all day long And where the workload is physically taxing and I don't know if it's this that has me overthinking. I've not had any bleeding but during some of my particularly busy shifts I've had awful cramping were I've been convinced I was gonna go to the toilet and see blood.
I'm not being scanned until 12-14 weeks coz that's when they do the nuchal translucency measurements. I want to pay for private scan but partner wants to wait so we see baby and not just a blob coz we've scanned to early but I just need to see a heartbeat 😪
I know there nothing that any of u can really advise other than scan but Hardly anyone knows I'm pregnant so I've got no one to share this with. I just lay in my bed every morning and night praying for a sign that everything is ok...feeling so alone. I just needed to share this X

Hi libra, not sure if this will help but im 9 weeks with my first and feel exactly the same. I haven't had many symptoms but the few I've had have disappeared and I feel completely normal, not even tired! I was naughty and googled it but actually the response was quite good, a lot of people saying the felt the same and went on to have completely healthy pregnancies.
I think there's always something new to worry about at every stage but it definitely helps to talk it through with others x

Thanks Dinky, it does help to know I'm not alone in my thinking. My husband is very supportive but to him if your not bleeding then pregnancy is going well so I keep saying about needing to know if everything is ok and he's like 'well isn't it obvious it is!?!?'
I know that symptoms can come and go and do get better. It so strange that it never even occurred to me before when I didn't have any symptoms in past pregnancies I just thought I was lucky but coz I've had them and they're gone this time I'm now willing myself to be so nauseous I'm hugging the toilet....ive become completely irrational!lol

Hey Libragirl, when I was in my 8-9th week, I moved to a new place where my husband and I got the interior work done and I used to just run around because I did not have time to relax! We also had a shower for our new house where I did work like a fricking robot, so in that time I literally forgot that I was pregnant at all! Couldn't feel anything Coz i was too exhausted most of the times but I am in my 15th week now and everything is just fine! I would say that you relax and just take your mind off of negative things like seeing the blood next time you rush to the toilet! this is your 4th pregnancy and for me it's the 1st, like Dinki said that everyone has something to worry about in this phase so just chill and don't stress😀 You can always share your feelings here and I will be happy to reply or listen to you!!

Thanks viniDpooh. I felt so much better today, just sharing how I was feeling has had a kind of offloading effect. Wasted my day off sleeping intermittently today as I'm just so exhausted which I suppose is a glaringly obvious pregnancy symptom that I just don't have when I'm working coz I cant have it! cant wait to have a wriggling bump that I can keep an eye on X
