I had severe morning sickness to the point I needed IV fluids a few times and I couldn't keep anything down. The last few days its gone totally, the total exhustion is gone, sore boobs are gone and nursing is no longer painful. I had an u/s at 8 weeks that showed a heart beat. Should I be worried? My OB is 3.5 hours away so its not like I can pop in for a quick check. I'm 11 weeks now and thought I'd been feeling some movement this last week (that fish in the uterus feeling).

MANY people experience relief from their symptoms as they approach the second trimester. I think it sounds perfectly normal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm also experiencing some relief, except my nausea has gotten briefly worse.

Satori, it sounds like your body really does things suddenly. Remember when you were concerned about no symptoms? Then in like 10 minutes flat you were in full blown morning sickness and concerned about that. Now, you're M/S is gone and you're concerned about that.<br><br>
I think we're right around the same due date, dont you turn 12 weeks in just a day or two? It really could just be you're moving out of the 1st trimester. If your body does things suddenly during this pregnancy, that could just be the what's going on.<br><br>
That said, you are the only true expert about what's happening with you and your baby. If you are feeling really concerned, then call your dr. You don't have to drive so far to talk to the Dr. She/He's only a phone call away. If she/he feels that you should get checked, then you can go from there. To me, it really does just sound like end of the first trimester for you.<br><br>
Some people have said that the work of pregnancy is worry. If you agree with this statement you may just need to do your best to trust that this will work out for the highest good. There's some point you get to where you realize that whatever the outcome, this is what we signed up for.<br><br>
There's a German proverb that goes something like, "You had the chance to own a goldfish, but you chose to have a child instead." Which basically means, you've chosen this path now it's time to enjoy the rewards and deal with the bumps. There have been many times when I've been admitted to the hospital for a few days or when I was spotting a lot (extreme vomitting shook my placenta loose), when I've gotten really worried. Worried if the baby would make it, worried if I'd make it, worried about my kids at home and my partner. But, there comes a time, when you just accept that this is what you signed up for... might as well enjoy the ride as best as you can, even if the experience isn't as textbook as we wish it was.

Spark,<br><br>
Your right, things have happened suddenly with this pregnancy. I was fine one hour and the next couldn't stop vomiting and the last couple weeks have been horrible. The last 2 days or so I've been eating so much, my ex step mom wondered what was up! (she doesn't know yet). I forgot how good food tastes! The nausea was back today though so I think I spoke to soon but at least I'm able to eat. I've put on 4 lbs the last 2 days eating and drinking so much<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Still not up to my pre puking weight though.

I'd call a doc just to get what will probably be reassurance, but that's my style.<br><br>
I've heard a LOT of other women say they were in the throes of 1st trimester one day (m/s, exhaustion, etc.), and then one day it just ended suddenly. It CAN happen....

Ooh, Satori, I'm so sorry you're nauseaus again. But, it's probably reasuring, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm glad you had a break from it at least. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> This really has been a sudden and extreme pregnany for you. I think it means you're getting all your icky out now so that you'll have an easy peaceful rest of your pregnancy... ooh and a great natural birth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
