Pregnancy Symptoms Are Mild Opposed to Before!

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am so worried, this is my first pregnancy. I am 23 years old, my lmp was Feb 9 I am 6 weeks, due date Nov 16.

My problem is, I only had frequent urination, hungry fast, and breast tenderness and soreness, now it seems to be that they are fading.

Before I couldn't touch my breasts now I can with out pain. I used to pee almost every hour now I go with in hours. I am worried. Slight cramps but no bleeding.

Please please tell me what can be wrong. Is this normal and can these symptoms come and go.

When should I see a doctor, cause I have never seen one since I got pregnant. They are all saying I have to wait until I am 8 weeks.

Thank you

ANSWER

So forget the doctors and see a midwife--we take care of you when you call. As for your lack of symptoms, you may just be one of the lucky ones whose morning sickness resolves early, or as you say, it may not be a viable pregnancy. There is really no way to tell yet, and no way to influence which way it will go. I can only say I wish you the very best of luck, and hope everything goes well.
