Currently I am 11 weeks, 5days. Monday I will go in for my 12 week checkup. This will not inlude an U/S since in BC early trimester sreening isn't offeredd unless it is high risk pregnancy or you don't know your dates. This will pretty much be a physical, with the added bonus of the Dr using a doppler stethescope so we can hear baby's heartbeat for the first time.
Anyways, for some reason I afraid for this checkup. I have a horrible feeling the Dr won't be able to find a heart beat and that something has gone wrong. I have had no signs of a miscarriage, no spotting at all and early pregancy cramping stopped for me about two weeks ago. And it was never severe, when I did experience it.However I also have next to no pregnancy signs. I have felt awesome throughout my whole pregnancy so far actually. No M/S aside from like 4 days of mild nausea around week 8/9. My breasts didn't become sore until about 2 or 3 weeks ago, and Fatigue has subsided the last two weeks,I no longer pass out at 8 or 9pm. I can stay awake unitl like 11pm or later most nights now. All I am experiencing is a small bump, larger/sore breasts with dark/larger nipples and still an increased appetite. People ask how I feel and when I say well I feel pretty normal, they look at me funny and almost with a dissapointed look, then smile and say "O well good for you, your so lucky". Should I be worried that I have almost no symptoms now at week 11 aside from the few minor ones I mentioned? I know symptoms usually start wearing off at this point but the fatigue seems to now be fading and I am afraid next thing my boobs will stop hurting and my appetite will decrease. Am I worrying for nothing?
