I know a lot of you are in the same situation but I feel really worried that I'm not feeling pregnant enough. I know we're all different but I haven't had any nausea, my boobs feel normal but perhaps just a bit bigger and in terms of growing and stretching pains I've had some mild ones on and off but that's it. I'm off to the doctors on Tuesday to inform him of my pregnancy but just keep feeling that something just isn't right I hate all this worry as this is such a wanted pregnancy, I'm just so scared. My partner is brill and says that it's all normal as I'm only 5 +3 but I'm not so sure. When I was last pregnant I felt nauseous from day 1.
Thanks for reading.

Hi huni with my 1st pregnacy i had nothing till i hit the 10.week mark, and so far this time round iv had nothing again apart for the odd feeling of sickness but not very strong and feeling a bit more tired Im sitting some where between 5 and 7 weeks they are unsure at the moment got a scan on the 24th july to see if peanut is still there....will be my 3rd scan
I think every one is different my morning sickness hit me in my 2nd and 3rd trimester the first 12 weeks i wouldnt of even know i was pregnant if it wasnt for a blood test xx
If your worried go to the doctors or call the epc or midwifes its what they r there for xxx

Thank you for replying, I know you're worried too about what's going on with ure little one. I bet u feel like ure on a rollercoaster bless you. I really have got my fingers crossed from you and am sending you hugs xxx
Yes it's so different for everyone and I guess it's only natural to compare to your 1st pregnancy if you've been pregnant before. Last time I felt so ill so this time I'm panicking as other than tiredness which is probably due to my cold and the odd mild cramp feeling I just don't feel pregnant enough. I will definitely speak to my gp about how I feel on Tuesday as I'm very anxious as have had previous bad luck twice when it comes to pregnancy.
Thank you, take care of yourself xxx

No advice to give i'm afraid, just to say i've been feeling exactly the same as you. I'm now around 9-10 weeks (unsure on dates too), and apart from slight breast tenderness, don't really have any glaringly obvious symptoms. I've got my first appointment with the midwife for Tuesday, but wil have to wait longer for my scan and it's driving me mad. I just want to know something is there and it's ok. I do understand how you feel xx

Girls if u feel there is some thing not right then u can ask for a scan.
Xxxsohappyxxx it very hard indeed my roller coster has to go another 3 weeks yet and im all over the place i feel im pushing my partner away and i seem to be more snappy im sorry tohere about your bad luck no wonder your feeling the way you do! I know i should be happy iv seen my sac grown in size over a week but for some unknow reason i cant believe its real, i test every few days or so and i still get a pos result with in seconds but it does not feel right inside, hope that makes sence.

Thanks Sessie for your reply, it's horrible isn't it, all the waiting and not really knowing. Roll on Tuesday as that's the day I see the gp too so hopefully we MIGHT feel a bit reassured that things are ok? I'm definitely going to ask about having an early scan, was always going to due to my previous history so fingers crossed! Good luck for your appointment
Aww Sarah, I'm so sorry you have to go through this, I do know what you mean and how the stress affects relationships from my last pregnancy which ended up in bereavements..life really is sh@t at times I'm afraid.
Try and hang in there girls, keep in touch. I'm off to bed as feel rubbish, I'm full of cold so have just taken some paracetamol which I really don't want to take but have needed to as my head is killing me as are my sinuses. Guess I'm feeling sorry for myself...nite xxx
Sticky baby dust to the both of you too xxx

Sorry to hear you are feeling worried, with my last pregnancy I only had slightly sore nipples and felt tired (although I am a tired person normally!) and this time I am exactly the same! Although it's nice not feeling rough I think its natural to worry you don't feel pregnant enough! I am going to have an early scan next weekend to make it feel a bit more real for myself, I think that would be great if you could have one too as you will see that little heart beat and will be able to relax a little bit hopefully sending you a big hug xxx

Hope everything goes well! My wife had misscariage few months back and preg again now but have a feeling it won't "stick"
Good luck x

Sohappy - are you the same sohappy that was on here years ago? X
07/07/2013 at 07:30
Thanks Sarah! Same to you, we all deserve it so much! Xxx
07/07/2013 at 11:19
Thank you everybody for your kind replies. Yes hushpuppy I'm the same sohappy that used to be here, never thought I'd be here again as thought my life was over....
desp2bdaddy, hang in there if you can, believe me we all know how difficult this is as lots of us have been to hell and back like yourself. Keep chatting here, we'll try to keep you sane, big hugs to you and ure partner xxx
magpie, good luck for your scan, I'm definitely going to ask my gp on Tuesday for one.
sarah, thinking of you xxx
07/07/2013 at 13:37
Well sohappy, it's lovely to have you back here. After everything I'm surprised you're still sane! I wish you every bit of luck possible and hope that your little bean is a sticky, healthy one. Lord knows you deserve it. x

Thank you very much, I am a bit of a scan-oholic and luckily hubby is happy to fund my little nuerosis! Haha. I didn't realise all the things you have delt with in your past, no wonder you are worried. What an amazing, strong and brave lady you are. Surely they must give you an early scan if you ask for one. This definitely must be your time to be happy and for some good luck xxx

Aww thanks hushpuppy and magpie, yes I'm hoping the same and really praying that it is my time for some happiness. I'm only just sane but very worried all of the time thinking that something is going to go wrong. Today I've woken up thinking I'm having an eptopic as I feel that I've got a bit of a lump on my right side near my hip and when I have felt any pain this is the side that its been on....honestly this is so scary I'm lucky in the fact that my partner is very loving and very supportive so understands why I feel its not real at the moment as its so desperately wanted .....bless him he thought his baby making days were over until he met me what a lot everyone has had to contend with. It's just that us women want to make everyone happy...I really hope my mum gets to be a proper grandma this time....it's not just about me...
Time for me to go out and about for a while as I'm back to work tomorrow, not looking forward to it but then have gp appt afterwards so will be happy to finally talk some of this out with him as he knows me from before, to be honest I've only seen this gp since everything happened due to that and how brilliant he has been to me and my family.
take care everyone, need to take my mind of this for a while.....
