6 weeks and symptoms getting milder
I will be 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow. Having a history of miscarriage I worry about every little thing. I was having a fair amount of cramping, some very mild waves of queasiness, and tender breasts, and sever fatigue. The last few days- I have little to no symptoms. I keep reading that it’s usually about 6 weeks that the symptom really hit you. Who has experienced this and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy? I had a MMC at 10 weeks (lost baby at 8) and symptoms started to go away at about 8-8.5 weeks. I had a chemical a couple months ago and began to bleed just a few days after symptoms went away. Needless to say- I’m a bit nervous!

I had 4 miscarriages last year and I'm 6 weeks pregnant so totally understand how you're feeling !
Are you in the UK ? My EPU told me I can self refer because I had a history of miscarriages, I had a scan last Thursday as I'd had very bad cramping and shoulder tip pain. Previously with my scans I've had a transvaginal scan I've not seen a heartbeat at 6 weeks but this time they found bean straight away with a regular scan! there was the hearbeat thumping away. I go back in two weeks for another scan to confirm viability but I'm so hopeful for a healthy pregnancy this time !
Speak to you're gp to see what that can do to help out your mind at rest and see if you can self refer for an early viability scan ?

Thank you! So far so good. Still very few symptoms aside from fatigue. My boobs have gone up a cup size already, and at only 6 weeks I’m too bloated for my regular jeans. I’ve gotten out some maternity pants already, but my athletic leggings still work. I’ve lost 4lbs since I found out, so I know it’s not just overeating! Despite being super nervous and fearing the worst some days- I really feel optimistic that this is my sticky rainbow baby. I’m so eager for my 8 week appointment! 2 weeks seems so close, yet an eternity away!
