A week ago Monday my symptoms went away overnight at only 7w2d and a few days later I started cramping. This is exactly how it went last time, so I was certain I was miscarrying. I decided to wait for my already scheduled u/s yesterday to find out for sure. The tech stuck the transvaginal in and within a few seconds said, "There's definitely a heartbeat!" The baby was measuring perfectly for dates and the heartbeat was nice and strong!! I can't tell you how shocked we are and I guess I just need to be thankful that for whatever reason my symptoms have gone away.

Oh Green4 that's great! As someone who has had 2 m/c and frets over every symptom that's a very encouraging story. And I'm so happy for you hearing the heartbeat!

Wow! That's GREAT news!! Isn't it so special to see your little one on there!? And to see their little puffy bellies/chests with a hearthbeat.

Also, when I read your post, also I was so glad to see you say that at 7wksXdays, your symptoms went away... because yesterday, my symptoms oddly seemed dramatically reduced. I wasn't really worried about it, but I just thought that for sure they'd come back. Well, they have come back, but just verrrrrrrry little. My other 2 PGs, the symptoms didnt go away until the 2nd tri. Maybe this time, like you, they'll go away this soon!! That would be awesome!!! We'll see.

Just wanted to let you all know that I went in for my 11 week appointment today and we heard the baby's heartbeat on doppler nice and strong! I really can't believe everything is okay - not just because of my m/c before, but also because I am being blessed with almost no symptoms. The reality still isn't sinking in!

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and just want to share that I understand exactly what you went through! I started bleeding at five weeks in August, and my husband and I thought for two days that I was in the process of losing the baby.

This is our first child, so I didn't know about threatened miscarriage, and my initial symptoms led my naturopath to believe I was having a miscarriage. We grieved, accepted the loss, told family members--everything.

And then on the third day I had a sense of not something quite right, did some research, asked the naturopath, had an ultrasound...and there was the heartbeat! It was just the best moment and such a relief.

Actually, grieving turned out to be a good thing in a weird way, because it really allowed us to just let go and accept what happens, whatever happens.

Congratulations on your own u/s results. Hope everything continues to go well.

Julie
