    im am so happy to finaly make it into the first trimester!!! i miscarried in august last year and it felt like i would never get pregnant again but YE HA i am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but as i guess anyone who has miscarried will understand. i am soooooo worried. with my last pregnancy i did not feel like i was pregnant no sickness etc and at 10 weeks i went for the scan to find baby had died at 7 weeks. now all i can think about is the same going to happen and im paranoid i do not feel pregnant again but i have done 3 tests and all say bfp!!!

    if any one is going through the same it would be lovley to hear from you.
    it would be nice to hear from any one as although worried i am very excited!!!

    take care all
    love sarah x x

    Congratulations Sarah!!! That's wonderful news!

    I'm lucky enough not to have suffered the heartache of a m/c, but I can totally understand your worry. I've got my first scan next Wednesday, and although very excited, I'm also really really nervous.

    Here's hoping you start feeling really sick soon!!!! :lol:

    Hi Sarah,

    CONGRATULATIONS!!

    I too m/c last August [it was my 3rd m/c] so I truly know how you feel.. anytime you want to chat let me know.

    In the meantime all I can say is try not to let the worry spoil the moment.. I have been on tenderhooks since I got my BFP but I have been well looked after by my local hospital and thanks to all the support from everyone on here [and taking it very easy for the last 12 weeks!] I am now feeling more confident.. as you may have seen from all my recent posts on this forum it has been a very scary time for me.

    We are here to get you through xxx

    thankyou anna marie, i have read all your posts and i am so glad things are looking good for you. when did you first go and see your midwife and was she understanding about your concerens and when did they do your fist scan as i so badly want to know if all is ok for me. the earliest i can see the midwife is 22nd of feb when i will be 8 weeks but i really wanted a scan before then just to put my mind at rest. i guess i will just have to play the waiting game! all the best

    Hi Sarah,

    Fortunately for me I was registered with the EPU at my local hospital as they referred me to the specialist there after my m/c in Aug as it was my 3rd and at my age they take us a bit more seriously. They found a polyp and cervical irregularities so they have been monitoring me closely ever since August.. so when I got my BFP in December they were very happy and have offered me scans weekly. It has been great for reassurance.

    My midwife I saw at 10 weeks and am seeing her again at 14 but to be honest it is just a formality at this stage cos if I have any problems I always ring up EPU instead as they know me and my history better.

    I would suggest that if you have any concerns let your GP know.. your GP can try to arrange a scan for you.. I remember last time I had spotting and they got me a scan through my GP within 48 hours.. my midwife did nothing last time round.

    Take it easy.. remember you have to rest as much as possible and that means little exercise if any and no spring cleaning or spraying toxic thing around.. wrap yourself up in cotton wool for as long as you can.

    Hi Sarah,
    Many, many congratulations. It's horrible that the real worrying starts now but it's a really vulnerable time, especially if you're suffered a miscarraige already.
    You know I never felt hugely sick through this pregnancy. I had a week or two of feeling queasy after eating but I had no morning sickness etc. Two friends of mine who were pregnant a few years ago didn't have a bit of sickness. One of them said she thought it was all in the mind! Don't stress too much about the symptoms because it isn't always textbook with everyone.
    Good luck. I hope the next couple of weeks aren't too worrying for you but it's understandable if they are.
    S

    Hi Sarah,

    As S said, some lucky women have vitually no symptoms..to be honest I had the early boob hurting and a few niggles in abdomen but I was never sick, just mildly nauseas [a bit like mildly travel sick] when hungry most of the day from 6 weeks to 11 weeks. I really felt fine throughout and like you I panicked thinking something was wrong if I didn't throw up or feel awful in the mornings!!

    Enjoy this time, no doubt the symptoms will appear when you least expect them..

    Yes the dream thing is a common symptom amongst some of us on here.. I still have very vivid ones!! In between peeing 10 times per night!! .. and feeling knackered all the time but having insomnia.. oh yes thats common too!!!

    dreams where the first symptom i noticed. If you can call them a symptom. I ws having really vivid dreams a week before i found out i was pregnant. I couldn't wait to go to bed each nite!

    The sore boobs followed! at the begining i wasn't sure if they where sore or i was imagining it a they didn't ache - just felt a little tender! but within a week knew the tenderness was real....
