I am a new member. Just a concern I am having and wondering if anyone can offer some encouraging advice. I had a miscarriage in 2001(b/n my first and second child) and since then I have been terrified to be pregnant. The loss we experienced was really tough. Anyway, I did get pregnant again after that and had a wonderful baby girl in Nov 2002. A few days ago I had tested because I was a few days late and I had a positive pregnancy test. I have been a nervous wreck because I have not been experiencing any other s/s of pregnancy besides a missed period. My breasts are not tender, I don't feel like I have to urniate frequently, etc. I have been reading some posts about other women feeling all these early early signs and I feel no changes to my body yet. The thing that worries me the most is with my first miscarriage I never bled. I went back for my SECOND visit (the first visit the fetus looked good - heartbeat was strong)- which was around 12 weeks and they couldn't find a heartbeat. I remember feeling the same thing. I lost all the symptoms of pregnancy but didn't realize it until I had found out the baby was gone. SOOOO... my concern is how come i am not feeling any other signs; should i be concerned; i am around 5-6 weeks pregnant (if all is well). I spoke to the nurse at my OBGYN and she said not to worry but I am so concerned. She said bleeding can occur at any time so not to go by that. Any concerns or advice would be appreciated.
