Hi everyone

Hope everyone is as well as can beπŸ’•

I am now 6 weeks today and feel like my breasts have lost there soreness and fullness I have also had some pain low down like pelvic area I'm such a paranoid mess ATM I'm so scared that something is going to wrong.

We had a scan on Friday and saw a tiny beating heartbeat which was the most amazing thing ever I have another scan this Friday and then will be scanned every 2 weeks due to Type 1 diabetes (insulin injection dependent)

Does anyone else feel like or feel like loose symptoms I also am not sick just tiered.

Thanks for reading xx

Wow that's great thank you so much for taking the time to post. 😘 I pray it's all just normal and I'm just worrying for no reason but I can't help feel something is not right after going through previous ectopics and now IVF I'm so worried! When is says pelvic pain - I have pain like middle very low down kinda of feel likes need a number 2 but I don't if that makes any sense like a pressure? Xx

Hi, I can relate to this one today. I'm 6+3 today & still waiting for my scan next week. I had a busy weekend & today I've notice a little niggle in my lower abdomen in my right ovary area. I've not had any pain or niggles here before today - I had the usual stretching/pulling/tugging sensations but this is a new one on me.

I'm now petrified that it's ectopic although I have no other symptoms (I've never had an ectopic before). I'm really hoping that I just did too much over the weekend & the mile walk to and from work today has just made me notice it...

Keep strong my lovely, you're not alone & I'm sure we'll both be fine xx

Hi pumpkin36

Congratulations πŸŽ‰ no please don't panic with all 3 of previous ectopics I had already starting bleeding at 5 weeks each time and also the pain is very strong and distinctive in tummy and tip of shoulder I highly doubt that's what it is.

Yes I also had a busy weekend but had day off work today holiday booked and feel like been driving myself mad as it's all I can think about the pain I'm experiencing is similar I hope to what you described pulling tugging etc it a pain I can't really describe or quite put my finger on exactly where it is! It's like low down In middle where pubic hair line starts? Sending all my love xx

Thank you for the reassurance hun it is much appreciated. If the pain is still there tomorrow, I will give them clinic a call to see what they say...

I've just arranged to work from home tomorrow so that's good not having to walk in. Will either rest for the day or work as my boss is very understanding - will see how I feel. Going to get an early night & relax.

Yes, it's a very internal sensation & quite hard to describe. It's just your body growing & moving making room for your little one to grow. Please try not to worry too much xxxx

Hope you managed to sleep well & feel a bit better. I took paracetamol last night & the pain settled down. I slept fine but woke up early...the pain wasn't there until I yawned! So drawing the conclusion that's it's a pulled muscle that just happens to be in that area.

Thanks so much for your messages yesterday, they really did help xxx

Hiya oh that's great I'm so pleased 😁 I didn't have a good night tbh I just kept waking up all throughout the night worrying the pain from yesterday is better but still there what is really worrying me is lack of symptoms my boobs where sooooo sore on sat/Sunday and have been since B4 I found out was pregnant and this morning they are not one bit I'm petrified that's something wrong have you experienced this?

Bless you - please don't worry about your boobs not hurting. Mine don't at all. I've had some pain but it comes & goes but please don't worry. Your body is doing so many things right now. My first pregnancy was a long time ago but I really don't remember my boobs hurting that much to start with - definitely more towards the 12 week mark & then they were very painful & sometimes hurt to have clothes on!!! I'm hoping that the distraction of work will help you today xxx

Thanks so much for reassurance I just feel so paranoid all the time and convinced myself that's somethings wrong 😩 I did read that you have surges in hcg which fluctuate throughout the week so I'm praying that's he case and they will be back to feeling sore asap yes going to go to work and try take my mind of it all and also keep off GOOGLE I'm the worst and work myself up I will send you a mgs on Friday when we know more after scan xx

Thanks you your reply I hope the soreness comes back! Xx

I'm 6 weeks and 1 day today and have also been having loads of little pains, pulls and niggles. They freak me out every time and I think the worst! Did you do a fresh round of IVF? If so, I suspect there is still a lot going on in there and our bodies are still recovering which might be causing some of the weird feelings. But it is all

a bit scary - you'll see from my previous post I'm having a tough time waiting for my first scan Friday week. I keep contemplating paying for an early scan privately just to make sure it is still there, but I'm not sure how much they can see at 6 weeks and so whether it could do more harm than good. X

Hiya London7 it's such a tough time I thought IVF was tough but the worry of pregnancy is so so difficult I'm really struggling if I'm honest. Yes my pains are middle just above public line and feel like pulling and sometimes cramping. Yes had a fresh cycle this was my first. Previously had 3 ectopics so I'm just madly paranoid. I had a scan on Friday I was 5+ 4/5 and they saw a tiny heartbeat ❀️ but that doesn't help when my symptoms seemed to have stopped. If you are worried can you go to your local epu they will scan you or ring clinic and explain and try get app earlier hope you ok xx

After 3 ectopics I'm not at all surprised you feel like this - I'm a mess and this is my first ever pregnancy. It is so tough, isn't it? But at least surely if they saw a heartbeat that means they know it is in the right place? But I understand how you feel - and I suspect like you there is nothing that is going to totally put my mind at rest until I have that baby in my arms (at which point I may just switch my worry to childhood diseases etc...!!). Hang in there! And thanks for the advice xxx

Thanks Hun xx

Yes they know it's in the right place now it's the total fear of something awful happening i won't say the word. God yeah I totally agree I think all us women will never stop worrying even if scan shows ok! Bless you I hope everything works for you how far along are you? If you not having issues you worried about I would wait for scan as will be so special sending love πŸ’•πŸ’• can I ask if you have had it that boobs stop hurting?! x x

I'm 6 weeks and 1 day today. I've had sore boobs constantly but my boobs became sore as soon as I started taking the progesterone and before I even had the transfer! So my boobs could just be constantly sore from the progesterone. Everything I've read online (I need to stop reading stuff online) suggests that in the early stages some women have lots of symptoms and others have none and some have symptoms that come and go. The only issue I'm worried about is my very sore back which is freaking me out! I stupidly googled "sore back early pregnancy" and found lots of results - some saying it is normal and others saying it can be a sign of miscarriage so of course now I'm totally freaked out! Xx

Aww bless you wow we are literally the same im 6+1 today!! Yes mine where the same with progesterone literally started from transfer but did get sorrer and now not! The back pain I can relate i Have it only started this morning it's low down a like an ache? Yes google is the worst but I'm so bad for it I'm forever googling. I feel like I need to be seen sooner cause I'm going mad! I just need to try relax but easier said than done hey! X x x

London7 in reply to E8989

Ah, snap on the dates!! Yep - a low down ache. Google really is the worst! I would try not to worry about symptoms coming and going - sounds like that is pretty normal (of course, I'm hardly one to talk, but it is easier to give good advice than to take it!!). That is great they were able to see a heart beat already. My first scan isn't until Friday week (21st) which feels like an age away. I was thinking of paying for a private one to put my mind at rest but then read that this early sometimes they can't find the heartbeat, and then I would just be even more stressed. Xx

It's literally the devil!! I really hope it's all ok for us both πŸ™πŸ™I know I was so shocked mine would be same date as your but I begged for early one due to previous history and so glad they did it cause I was going out of mind! I think it's is best to wait like you said as can't always see until 6+4 sometimes!! Wishing you all the luck and postive vibes in the world. Do you mind if I mgs you if need more support? Xx
