From a paranoid first-time mother-to-be

I am 10 weeks today and have had hyperemesis for the last few weeks which required Maxolon. I have tried not to take too many of them so only when absolutely necessary.

All of a sudden, my nausea and vomiting has all but gone - I am so worried because I have heard that if your symptoms suddenly stop, it can be a sign of miscarriage.

Can someone offer any suggestions?

As long as you still have other pg symptoms, I think you'll be fine.  When I miscarried back in April I had severe cramping (which is why I knew bubby wouldn't stick around), and about 1-2 hours before I started bleeding my boobs deflated big time.
But if  your really worried abotu it go to your gp or ob/gyn.

Hi CJK,

Yes a sudden stop in morning sickness can indicate a miscarriage but it can also just be a normal part of your pregnancy (maybe it's stopping for good, maybe you're just getting a day off).  I had a similar freak out at 10 weeks when my morning sickness stopped.  After a restless night I called my OB and asked for an ultrasound which they organised for me straightaway. Fortunately everything was fine and my symptoms returned that afternoon.  I had to pay for the ultrasound but it was worth it for my peace of mind.  I think you'll find that most doctors will be compassionate with a scared pregnant woman and if it's really going to stress you out then it's definitely worth getting checked out.  

Good luck, I hope that everything is fine.

Both times of my m/c the first symptoms have been severe cramping & then the bleeding....
I still have terrible morning sickness now (who the hell called it morning sickness!! lol) But right from the beginning, every couple of weeks it abates for a couple of days. Apparently it is totally normal. I'm just crossing my fingers that my throwing up will eventially stop completely!
If you are really concerned you could get a blood test done to check your levels, but my (unqualified!) thoughts are that as said up there ^^ if you still have other symptoms then it's probably totally normal.

Hi CJK,
Im 10 weeks today too and mine has pretty much gone aswell. (And Im worried as well.) It has been fading over the last 6 days or so, and now I can hardly notice it.
Im not sure what to do, I mean it can just fade at this stage can't it?
Now Im really worried....

I am going to my O & G this afternoon so will ask him about it and hopefully allay some fears.

The internet contains too much (inaccurate) info and from what I can gather, everyone is different and it is quite normal for symptoms to come and go.

All is fine! Had first O & G visit and he said "I think you can start believing that you are actually going to have a baby". He said it is not uncommon for symptoms to come and go and for nausea to go completely by week 12.

He told me to stop reading the internet! Problem is I am a medical negligence lawyer and a nurse so think I have to take those hats off and be blissfully ignorant!

Thanks for all your replies.

You're lucky, I am just over 9 weeks and mine is getting worse sad.gif

All the best with your pregnancy, I have to agree with your OB, reading the internet can sometimes make me freak out more that satisfy my curiosity!

During the first 12 weeks, your HCG levels are very high until the placenta is in place and providing the necessary nutrients for your baby.  It's commonly thought that HCG causes morning sickness.

As the placenta is effectively in place by week 10, the HCG will dissipate, potentially leading to loss of morning sickness.

Mine went around 9 weeks and, as you can see by my ticker, Hemi came out safe and sound.
