    i am 11 weeks pregnant, but am very paranoid that there is nothing there! i have had few symptoms but no sickness etc.i have taken a few tests over the 11 weeks but the line appears fainter. if baby has died would line still be present on home tests?

    hi,

    i must admit i dont feel pregnant, its so hard until you feel it moving etc,
    i have had morning sickness though and felt tired and had sore nipples, so i am convinced that way.

    if you are unsure contact your midwife if you have one yet or the maternity ward and voice your concerns, believe me they are very very understanding as they appreciate that its your baby and a new life.
    They might take you in for a scan.

    Let us know :D :D :D

    You could hire a doppler from www.mybump.com - this has given me so much reassurance recently that my baby is still alive. It's worth the money - defintely.

    Some of my tests appeared fainter though so don't worry sweetie.

    Hi

    With pregnancy tests I know they work by detecting the certain pregnancy hormone which it at very high levels when you miss your first period but I'm unsure as to whether the hormones get less as the pregnancy progresses? I know that when the placenta takes over there is a change in hormones and thats why morning sickness can stop suddenly at around 16 weeks and you generally start feeling better because your body isn't having to work as hard.

    The early pregnancy unit at your local hospital is there to monitor you and your baby so if in doubt then pay them a visit, thats what they are there for.

    Hope all is well for you :)
