Hi, I will be 5 weeks pregnant tomorrow. This is my second pregnancy. My first pregnancy was IVF and this one is natural.
I'm an anxious person anyway, however today I haven't really had any symptoms. Last few days I have been getting cramping in my stomach, just mild cramping. Retching (not actually being sick) and only a for a few times, one breast feels firmer than the other. I guess today I did cry for a couple of mins for no reason. I also had a little bit of creamy whiteish discharge (sorry if tmi) and slight headaches. I was really thirsty too.
Today I've had no cramping or retching so I'm really worried. I'm trying to remember what it was like in my first pregnancy but I can't really compare as I had OHSS in my first pregnancy which made me very ill anyway. and not really had the discharge or headache. Not so thirsty today. I know most of you might think i'm lucky but I am really worrying.
Should I be worried? My first doctors appointment isn't until next week.

Also I have been looking on other websites and so many people have said they have miscarried and it's terrifying me! :-(

Hi muse I'm doing exactly the same as you today. Im 5 weeks today too and the only symptom I had was full and sore boobs and they disappeared yesterday :( I've scared myself looking on google. A lot of people seemed to say the same happened to them and they were fine.

Sounds like a normal pregnancy. I have 2 kids with one on the way. Stress does a lot to your body including random aches and pains. Best advise is to stay off google, and just sit back and relax. Enjoy the time you have with your little one growing inside you. Symptoms will come and go, nothing to be t worried about. If you start bleeding heavily or cramping super bad (doubled over in pain) call your dr or go to the nearest E.R.
Good luck =)

Hi there! Try not to worry. I'm in very similar position to yourself, only slightly ahead of you! Ok my first preg was also treatment. This one naturally. I'm now 12 weeks but I was feeling just the same as you all along! One day I woke up feeling preg and the next nothing! I googled and read all the horror stories too but I came across someone's helpful post which stuck with me. a girl said that her midwife talked about preg symptoms having peaks and troughs. It wasn't a straight line and you may have a couple days feeling rough then the next symptom free. All about the hormones going up and down. Honestly I felt just as worried as you, but I've had my 12 week scan now. Everything looks grand and I still don't feel all that preg - except my scan tells me otherwise :) all the best and I'm sure you'll be just fine along with baba.

Hi there :-)
For what its worth, with both of my pregnancies I had no symptoms whatsoever in the early stages! Well I did, just extremely tired, but that was it!
So try not to worry. Your symptoms will come and go. Providing you have no bleeding or anything just try and enjoy your pregnancy!
Lots of luck for this pregnancy x
