Miscarriage if Pregnancy Symptoms Stop?
Here are opinions and answers from contributors:
- I have never had any miscarriages i do have 4 children and i just found out that im 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant now but for the past 2 days i have been bleeding like im having a normal period unfortunately they told me that if it is a miscarriage theirs nothing they can do i did have a episode with my youngest daughter about 2 years ago where i thought i was losing her i was gushing blood they rush me to the hospital and told me that she was fine and that it was a busted blood clot so im thinking it may be the same cause with this one im not having any pain some very very light cramps as if im on my period but that's it. for the past two days i felt bad but today when i woke up i felt great so i don't know my breast are not as sore as they were yesterday i have not been sick in over 2 days since i found out that i was pregant so i dont know whats going on with me i guess all their is to do0 is hope for the best and good luck to everyone else
- I have had two miscarriages. Right now I am 5 weeks pregnant, and a couple weeks before I even found out I was pregnant I had sore breasts. About a week ago they got worse as far as soreness goes. Now they are not half as sore, and I noticed when my hubby accidentally hit them when we were wrestling. It just hit me all of a sudden that it was a major change. I still am having some slight nausia and tiredness so honestly I have no clue what's going on. I have not even went in for my first check up yet. In my previous miscarrages the first one I had no pregnancy symptems...only depression and major moodiness. The last one I was fatigued, slightly nausous, but other than that everything was fine (My breast were sore in the shower). I don't remember the preganncy symptoms disappearing...I just remember waking up and bleeding. That miscarrage was accompanied by no cramps or pain...my first was was very painful though. I have no idea what to tell anyone. Both of my experiences were so different, and right now i have no idea what's going on. I wish everyone luck.
- Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question, but I share your concern. I'm 7.5 weeks pregnant, and until two days ago things were progressing normally. But in the last couple of days I've stopped feeling pregnant. My breasts are only mildly sore (I had felt a lot of pain prior). Very little nausea yesterday and none today. I'm 35 and this is my first pregnancy. I am so scared. Anyway, I can't answer your question, but I promise you're not alone. If I find any helpful info or advice I will be sure to pass it along. So far I've found mixed answers... some indicate that we should call our doctors ASAP, others say that every pregnancy differs and it may be nothing. Anyway, I wish you luck.
- I have experienced two different miscarriages and, yes, in my experiences symptoms did stop, but in both my cases I had some minor bleeding like spotting.
- I'm a little over ten weeks along now and at about 7 or 8 weeks a lot of the symptoms went away overnight (or so it seemed). Since then I've been to the doctor and had a sonogram and there's a heartbeat and everything is perfect so far. You probably still get milder symptoms like nausea, but rarely and when something is gross rather than all the time now. That's normal for 7.5 weeks.
- I've had two miscarriages within this last year. With the first one the symptoms did not stop until I passed the the baby out. The second time all of the symptoms disappeared a little at a time. I went to the doc and they took a blood test to determine the hormone level in my blood and it steadily went down all the way to 2 percent, then I miscarried. So go to the doctor so that they can find out what is taking place. I had both miscarriages at 7 weeks.
- I experienced almost all the symptoms of pregnancy: very tender sore breasts, frequent urination, headaches, etc. However I started to lose those signs by the time my period was due. Later I had clear vaginal discharge which turned brownish, then dark red. It was a very early miscarriage.
- The only time you should worry about your symptoms stopping is if you are experiencing intense and painful cramping. I had the same concern when I was 6 1/2 weeks along. I talked to my doctor and it is completely normal. I have been reading the book called "What to Expect When Your Expecting" and it has ease most of my concerns.
- I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. At around 9 weeks I felt something was wrong, went to the doctor and had a sonogram. Found a heartbeat - said 9.1 weeks along. Very shortly after that, all PG symptoms stopped. I kept pleading with my doctor that I felt something was wrong, but she maintained that I was fine. Finally after I started spotting, then bleeding at 12 weeks, they did another sonogram. The fetus measured 9.1 weeks and had no heartbeat. All my doctor could say is "Gee, isn't it funny how the mother always knows..."
- I started having symptoms at CD 12 - frequent urination, sore breasts, sensitive smell, queasiness, food cravings. My doctor confirmed my pregnancy. At CD 21, my symptoms suddenly stopped. I went to the doctor the following Monday and my hCG had decreased by 2/3. It was an impending miscarriage. I did not have any bleeding, but there were menstrual-like cramps. When I started bleeding three weeks later, the cramps were more severe. I think I ought to mention that I have PCOS and hypothyroidism. But as others have said, it is possible for symptoms to stop in some women and be okay.
- I am going through the same thing right now. I am 7 weeks and as of a few days ago, my symptoms, which were intense, have gone away. I feel as though I am not pregnant at all. I have not had any bleeding, spotting or cramping. This is my second pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my son I was very sick from week 6 on so I am very concerned. I am waiting for my doctor to get back to me today. Hoping she will be kind enough to get me in for a sonogram. My first appointment was scheduled for next week. Hopefully they don't make me wait til then...I just want to know if I am losing this one or if all is okay.
- I am seven weeks pregnant. Last Friday I woke up and felt no symptoms of pregnancy whatsoever. The breast soreness was gone and I felt no headaches or morning sickness. I had mild spotting first thing that morning. I was very scared, so I called my mother and we quickly contacted the doctor. He told me to wait it out. I stayed in bed for the weekend to give my body a chance to catch up. My symptoms came back, but they are more mild. The doctor told me it was implantation bleeding and that everything was perfectly fine!
- I seem to be going through the exact same thing as you are. I am 7 weeks and two days and my symptoms have been completely gone for the last 5 days. I have a bad feeling and I don't feel pregnant anymore. I am so worried. I should have been 8 weeks today but I had an ultrasound a week ago when I was supposed to be 7 and they said that I only looked to be about six weeks or something. That worried me, but there was a little heartbeat. I have had two previous miscarriages. The first I was almost 8 weeks pregnant and I felt no nausea at all during my pregnancy, the only sign I had was sore boobs which only vanished after I passed everything and my miscarriage was complete. The second was a chemical pregnancy which ended at almost 5 weeks, I didn't have many symptoms at all. And now I am pregnant again. I said this was going to be third time lucky and I am praying that it is.
- I have a healthy 2 1/2 year old daughter. She was conceived 2 weeks after I went off the pill (I had been using it for about 8 years), I really didn't expect to conceive very quickly, so I didn't analyze things too much, but I remember being super exhausted and before morning sickness hit me at around 6 weeks, I could clean an entire restaurant portion plate (which I normally never do!). Anyway, about a year later, we were ready to try for another. I figured it would happen quickly again, but when 8 months passed and nothing was happening (I was using LH tests to determine ovulation), I decided to see a specialist. She did a bunch of lab work that all came back fine and decided to try a round of clomid with an HCG trigger. Two weeks after the trigger, I did a home test and it was ++! I went to her office the next day for a beta and followed up 2 days after that for another and the results were very high and doubled by the second test. About the only symptom I noticed was that my breasts and nipples had changed and minor constipation, that is what made me do the home test. No tenderness, morning sickness, exhaustion, anything really. I was ecstatic since things had been so severe with my prior pregnancy, especially the morning sickness. I went in at 6 weeks for an ultrasound which ended up showing twins! I went in for another ultrasound at 8 weeks, but by that time, we could only find 1 baby, measuring good and a good heart rate (164). Still no symptoms, my OB kept asking me if I'd felt any nausea or anything and I just felt lucky that I hadn't. In fact, I remember telling people that I hardly even felt pregnant. At 12 weeks, she scheduled me for another ultrasound, but by that time, the baby had died and there was no heartbeat. Since I was so far along and the placenta seemed to be pretty well attached, I opted to do a D&C to clean everything out. , I don't want to scare anyone, but my OB was concerned that I did not feel hardly any symptoms at all. Definitely, having the symptoms (even severely!) is probably better than none at all.
- I have had one previous misscarriage where at about week 8 or 9 I all of a sudden felt like i wasn't PG and thought that I was just lucky. Then I started bleeding at 11 weeks, went in for an US and there was no heartbeat and the fetus had died at 8 weeks. This time i am at 8 weeks and few days ago my few symptoms that i did have stopped. So i am very worried I am going to misscarry again. I don't have any children and we are waiting for our first. I pray for all of you in the same boat and hope for the best.
- I have had two miscarriages (the latest only yesterday) - the first at 6 weeks the second at 5 weeks. In both cases I suffered morning sickness for the first week and the symptoms decreased significant the next week. This time I noticed feeling like my period was coming on - stomach churning and gurgling. I started spotting and within 24 hours had passed the placenta. I wish you the best.
- I am 15 weeks pregnant with my second child. I started to get some mild pregnancy symptoms at about 6 weeks including nausea but by 8 weeks they had more or less gone and I didn't feel pregnant anymore and panicked. At about 10 weeks the midwife checked for a heartbeat as I was worried and found one, a scan confirmed everything was ok at 12 weeks and I have never got the nausea or some of the other symptoms back. In my opinion every pregnancy is different and my friend had a similar thing happen to her and it was also all fine although her symptoms returned after 2 weeks. I was told by my midwife that unless I had cramping or bleeding I shouldn't worry too much.
- Look, I've had miscarriages too. I also have a healthy baby. My healthiest pregnancy had me insane for a few days. I stopped feeling pregnant. I had a late pregnancy loss at six months. You need to worry about not feeling pregnant at about four to five months. It comes and it goes and you feel nausea and you'll have horrible days again. It is normal to feel scared but it is ok. When I had my miscarriages, I felt cramping in my legs then I had the miscarriage and bleeding. It isn't like that for everyone but that is how it went for me. Try to relax, if you can. It is difficult. I've been there.
- I miscarried last year after 8 weeks. First the pregnancy symptoms disappeared, then I felt cramps and then the bleeding. The bleeding can be normal, but can also be a sign of something so it's best to get it checked out. It turned out that mine was a delayed misacarriage...the cells didn't form properly so I had been carrying an empty sac. It was still really devastating. Now I'm still not pregnant but if I ever do manage to conceive I know I'll be really paranoid...it'll probably drive me mad. Good luck to everyone who's trying. x
- I've had 2 miscariages in the last year too. I'm pregnant again now and are really nervous. My 1st miscarriage the symptoms just disappeared and when I went to the dr and he said that the cells developed but no baby was formed. The second one I had all the symptoms until a week or so after I had a D & C. I was so heartbroken as I had a heartbeat & everything until 7 weeks 3 days. I'm now is my 6-7 week and some of the soreness of my boobs went away - it's now basically only sore when I lie on them, touch them and so on. Unfortunately I also have heartburn with each pregnancy (don't know why). My heartburrn are also not as bad as other days but it is still there. I know this one will just be okay. I hope all of you will be okay. Remember everything happens with a cause and you won't be dealt what you cannot handle.
- I had a miscarriage last year, and i wasn't even aware that I was pregnant. I was 6.5 weeks along (based on the hCG levels, which were falling, so I could have been further along). Now i think I'm pregnant again, and I've also had the boobs thing. They were so sore and tender and now it's stopped, but they still feel bigger and fuller. I'm not sure what the hell is going on, and I'm so worried.
- I have had four miscarriages, each between 8-12 weeks. I also have five healthy children. Each pregnancy has been different. For me, the worst pregnancy was the worst. I had 24/7 morning sickness the entire 9 months, and felt completely drained the whole time. Each subsequent pregnancy has been different, and not as bad as that first one. It even seems to matter if I'm carrying a boy or a girl. With my miscarriages, however, I never got sick, and by the time I began to miscarry, I felt very definitely unpregnant.
However, every woman's body is different and reacts differently to pregnancy, even to different pregnancies. The best thing for a woman to do, if she is concerned, is to call the doctor (nurse mid-wife, etc.) or the doctor's nurse. Tell him or her exactly how you are feeling. They can reassure you or ask you to come in for an evaluation if they have a concern. If you have called and still don't feel right, just make an appointment. You don't need permission. If something isn't feeling right to you, or you're worried, go in. Any caring, good doctor (or other professional) will take the time to listen to you and will even offer to do an ultrasound for further assurance (mine does one the very first visit, and schedules a follow-up if he has any questions about the pregnancy). Ask for an ultrasound if one is not offered. (This may not be as attractive an option if your insurance won't pay for one at this early stage, or if you have no insurance, so consider how much you want to pay for peace-of-mind.)
- Spotting in pregnancy is not uncommon--as mentioned above, it can occur during implantation. Sometimes it's a reaction to hormones. Sometimes the placenta separates from the uterus a bit and causes bleeding. Any bleeding should be mentioned to your practitioner immediately so they can decide what course to take.
- Pregnancy symptoms, or the lack thereof, can cause great worry to an expecting mother. Worrying about every single little symptom can turn her into a nervous wreck! Try to educate yourself the best you can by reading excellent materials written by competent professionals, and use your healthcare provider as one of your good resources. Again, never hesitate to call if something seems wrong. Don't feel silly, and don't worry that you're bothering them. That's what they're there for. And if you don't feel that they're listening or care about you, find someone else. I'm sorry for anyone that has lost a pregnancy. It is not an easy thing to go through, but I can promise you that it will get better over time. Best wishes to all who embark on the wonderful journey of motherhood!
- With my last miscarriage I had strong symptoms starting at about week 6, by week 9 I noticed they had disappeared completely. I miscarried at 11.5 weeks.
