That makes me feel confident that it is very unlikely that the baby died and my body would not give me any signs.
Today I am feeling awful, so that is a good sign. I woke up with horrible nausea in the middle of the night. Today I have diarrhea, and I feel awful.MiracleMama
, I did not see your post until after I posted.
Hoping the very best for you! You are in my thoughts.
I have seen that stat too, 1%, although just from talking to people I feel like it has to be *much* higher than that. I was really surprised to read that when I did, just cause the tech who gave me the bad news after the u/s said that it had happened three! other times that day, and just from reading the PAL forums it seems like its more than that. I know some of it is folks getting earlier and earlier u/s so if it normally took a week for your body to 'process' you aren't giving it that chance, but in my case my body had 4 weeks, so I am hoping *that* case is at least in the 1% range.
one of the reasons I decided to wait for the later u/s is just that, it seemed unlikely that I'd have my body miss the boat so badly *twice* in a row like that, but I don't know if its something that repeats among people due to certain predispositions either.
my ob/gyn said the two times I saw her, when I expressed concern/worry, 'well you aren't bleeding, right? no spotting? etc?' but that's is just no comfort after last time!
though I have to say, my body did sort of let me know, I just didn't realize since it was my first pregnancy. Starting week 6 I had a small amount of nausea and fatigue (nothing like this time, it was mostly the heartburn after digesting) and it all disappeared by week 7. And I was able to do a 130mi bike ride in week 10. (plus some 90milers training for it) I just assumed I was one of the lucky ones w/out nausea or fatigue lasting too long! Not so much.
Now, I wake up every morning trying to gauge the queasiness. Sadly, some days its worse than others so I freak out but its always there in some way. So I hope like you that I'd get a sign at least w/ symptom loss.
my u/s is in two and half weeks or so. I am so nervous, since I really really don't want to hear bad news that way again. I had some pretty tough m/c dreams last night, so realistic I almost told the mr. when I woke up at 4am that I bled in the middle of the night in the bathroom until I really thought hard about it and realized I hadn't, it was just a dream. I didn't sleep well last night after that! Could use a nap about now.
