I am around 11 weeks pregnant and I'm very worried as my symptoms have completly disapeared, although I had no sickness at the begining I always felt sick and had really tender breasts, now I have nothing and its making me worry as I had a missed mc early last year and I didn't have any pain i found out on my first scan the heart wasn't beating and my scan is next week but it's constantly playing on my mind!?

I know how worried you must be blt given your past experience. My first pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage too so i understand. What I can reassure you on though is that it is completely normal towards the end of the first trimester (so exactly where you are now) for your symptoms to start easing / disappearing as your body settles down / gets used to the hormones & also now the placenta is up & working well you're not producing tons of progesterone like you were prior to that which is a big cause if symptoms.
also, as I'm sure you were told as i was... Having just 1 mc does not increase your chances at all of having another so you have at least a 75 % chance that this pregnancy is going to go fine.
you must be having your first scan very soon right?
Try not to worry & just take each day at a time until your scan.

Thank you I didn't know that to be honest and the midwife didn't really say much about my past pregnancy although I told her and I have my scan on the 7th which is next Friday.
My boyfriend keeps getting irritated with me for always worrying about it and telling me to relax but I just can't help it, the fear of going through the same experience again just gets to me.
Hopefully it's all good news when I have my scan

A lot of us on here will have been through the same thing and it's completely normal to feel scared. I am and I've got a perfectly healthy 6yo now! Just rest up and try and think positive, good luck for next week
