Ladies, anyone relate? I've had one miscarriage already so I get really nervous with every little symptom.... I had really bad cramps and a little discharge and REALLY sore br___ts the last few days. Then suddenly last night, I suddenly felt better. This morning i don't feel as bloated, my cramps have temp stopped and br___ts are not as tender as before. Anyone else think this is normal? I am trying not to think the worst but, can't sleep. Anyone have a clue what's happening?

Rachel - it's totally normal from what I hear. Bet tomorrow you'll feel like c___p again! :) I also had a m/c before, and am nervous like crazy, but just think, there's absolutley nothing you can do... so enjoy it and try to not stress (bad for baby!).

Rachel - i think what you're feeling is totally normal but I can totally sympathise. I am due on May 14th with my third child, I have two daughters. I have also had a previous miscarriage, three years ago, and feel like I am paranoid with every symptom. I had cramps which are now easing, I have slightly sore b___st but not as bad as previous pregnancies and am just beginning to start with nausea. I have also had one tiny spot when wiping too and although I had this with both my daughters it still worries the life out of me. Fingers crossed everything goes ok for both of us, good luck.

Rachel, I went through loss of symptoms a week ago. I had an ultrasound and baby was doing fine. Symptoms came back and now there gone again, I think it must be normal. This is my fourth pregnancy(two live births and 1 miscarriage). I didnt even get any symptoms with my healthy babies until I was 7 weeks and they still werent very strong. Baby I miscarried I had symptoms even after I found out baby had died it was a missed miscarriage at 12 weeks. This pregnancy symptoms seem to come and go. I am so scared though of going through another loss. I am 9 weeks 1 day and cant get in to see my doctor for 3 weeks. These next few weeks are going to be so hard, I just cant wait until I make it to 12 weeks. Praying for healthy babies for all of us!!

I also lost a baby(6 months ago)and am due to give birth in may. I know Exactly how you feel. I am so scared half the time. all the symptoms will come back. Im enjoying not having the pain in my b___sts for the little bit of time that it will last!

I had an eptopic pregnancy in june I had emergancy surgery. My Dr. stated to my husband that if I would of ruptuered I woulnt have made it the emergancy room. I have irregular cycles so I only new I was preg for @wks.I just found out I was pregnant yesterday. I called the doctor because I didnt wnt to have surgery again. I am 42 have 3 girls 17,14, 11 ,1 son 18 months I had an ultra sound toda and the yolk sack is in the uterus no tubal pregnancy thank you Lord. But I can honestly say that as amother you never seem to stop worrying. Try to focus on positve and think of the good things it makes you feel alot better. I know the pain of a misscarriage also. with the tubal pregnancy it was easier to suffer the loss because I still had my life to give to my children. there is vertually nothing you can do to prevent misscarriages.I hope to tke my own advise focus on the things we can control.

You have SOOO relieved some of my anxieties by your experiences!!! - I'm going for my HCG testing tomorrow morning and will have an update by the end of the week - although, I am feeling "pregnant" a little again tonight. I totally relate to the "waiting Game" - I guess the worrying is just beginning. I better relax and enjoy it as part of Motherhood, right? I've already begun talking to the embryo! This is my first and it will feel good to know I'm not talking to myself :) Thank you all again and I'll keep you posted! I sooo look forward to celebrating all our births in May 2006!!! God Bless.

I am right on the same track as you all. I had a miscarriage last year and am 7 weeks now and due in May. This is my second day of very light brownish discharge and also some mild backaches/cramps. I still am nauseas-tender b___sts, you name it. I see the doctor today. Very nervous.

I am 6 1/2 weeks PG and my s/s come and go throughout the last several weeks. My maternity center said that it is normal. Our hormones are fluctuating so much during pregnancy that we might experience more s/s on some days than others. My cramps stopped for the most part at about 6 weeks and I had constant nausea only during my 5th week. Now I get nausea occasionally, especially when I wait too long before eating. I find myself tired more on the days that I have more nausea, too. I know it's hard to do, but you just have to relax and try not to worry. Worrying won't help any and will only put more stress on your body. Trust God that He'll take care of you and the baby and everything is in His control. Your in my prayers!

Messages from Heaven. You all are in my prayers also. Thanks so much. Great to know we're not alone. :)

Rachel - I am in a similar situation. Had a m/c a little over 2 yrs ago and am now at 5 weeks :) My b___st were sore right from week 3!!! Today I woke up and they didn't feel sore at all. All I could think of was that I had m/c. It is good to hear that other people's symptoms come and go. I just hope that I get some symptoms soon so that I can feel pregnant :)

 

Monique - September 22

I had mc at 6 weeks in May, now I'm due in May. I have been super paranoid monitoring my symptoms diligently everyday--I was nauseous, then not, ny t_ts were huge then normal, etc... I was a nervous wreck when I went to get my first us on Monday--BUT THERE WAS A STRONG HEARTBEAT!! All this week I haven't been as tired, no sickness, b___sts not THAT sore--then TODAY BAM!!! I feel like CRAP! I have come to terms that my symptoms come in waves and I've started to instead of WORRY, be THANKFUL I don't feel like this everyday!! I really believe in positive thinking now, and seeing that heartbeat DEFINITELY makes it easier. What I have to stop doing sadly is reading all these message boards!! Because JUST when I start to relax I read about 12th week mc or 9th week missed mc..... THAT IS WHAT"S MAKING ME PARANOID!!! Good Luck!!

 

bean - September 22

Monique - you nailed it! It's these darn boards where one unfortunate pg goes wrong and all of us are now paranoid. I'm literally watching the clock go by till my next dct's appointment (still two weeks from now!). Doesn't help that today is one of those feel like c___p days. ugh...

 

Cyndi - September 23

I had a m/c in March of this year and I too am due in May with baby #2. I am so worried Im always crying because I just think that on Monday when I get my us I wont see an embryo or a heart beat. The only symptom I have is sore b___sts, thats it, I haven't had spotting or anything YET. I just have no confidence in this going anywhere. I am very scared. With my son my breats hurt for 2 weeks and then it went away and I had a healthy baby, so just because your symptoms go doesn't mean anything bad. Good luck and I wish you the best.

 

pregnantat32 - September 26
