Symptoms have faded quite a bit

Hi everyone, I wonder whether anyone hasexperienced a drop in symptoms at 9 weeks (exactly today) my food aversions are not as strong, boobs not as sore etc.... I have had a previous miscarriage so this is scaring me as this happened before but at an earlier stage. My friend said she thinks it might be the placenta starting to work a bit (although I know this wouldn't be fully up and running for another few weeks.) Any advice would be appreciated x x

But I did forget to add I'mabsolutely starving eg up 3 am this morning eating crumpets x


During early pregnancy, I experienced single days now and then where the symptoms were not as strong as the days before and where I almost felt "normal". But the next day, the symptoms usually got stronger again. Although I worried whenever I felt better back then, I now know it's completely normal to notice a drop and then again a rise in symptoms - at least it was for me and for many other women I know. Try not to worry (I know, easier said than done), I am sure in a few days you'll feel "more pregnant" again. And remember there are those lucky girls who don't feel any symptoms at all and end up having healthy, happy babies nevertheless xx


Thanks, hopefully you are right I think with the bad experience I keep worrying that things are going the same way. But it's a totally different pregnancy and my babies are ok! X


I have had a previous misscarriage too. I'm now 20 weeks and somedays I'm so ill and others I feel fine, up and down all the time xx


Hi - Yes I had exactly the same thing, with the symptoms seeming to fade away, and like you, having a previous miscarriage, was sure that it meant the hormones were dropping and it was going to be the same again. That was 3 weeks ago, I'm now 11 1/2 weeks and early scan last week showed everything was fine so far. I have no idea the reasons behind it, but I hope it works out the same for you and try not to worry too much.


Hi I am 31 weeks and when I was about 7 weeks pregnant I felt sick for 2 weeks, sore boobs, hungry etc then after this I felt fine - not even pregnant. I also posted on here cos I was worried as it was another 4 weeks until my midwife appointment.

After a few days it started again with headaches, tiredness etc - and I defo felt pregnant (or rather ill).

Again I still get sick days and days when I cant lift my head off the pillow or days when I cant fill my bottomless pit of a belly. I dont think you can judge how you feel to how the pregnancy is developing as every pregnancy will be different.

Take Care x
