    Hello all, nice to meet everyone. My name is Melissa and I have been on the TTC after loss board for 6 months. I am finally pregnant! I am about 5 1/2 weeks now. I wondered if you ladies could answer a question or rather sooth a concern I am having. As I am sure you all have felt I am very nervous about losing this baby as well and am examining every little thing! Well, I dont have a lot of symptoms yet but the one I did have was nipple tenderness. Well in the last couple of days it seems to be fading... Has anyone had that happen before and it turned out ok? Thanks for all your input.

    Hi Melissa! Congrats again to you! That is funny that you mentioned this. I was feeling really down thinking that our IVF didn't work, then woke up one morning and my breasts were very tender...that morning I got my first BFP. And like you, that seemed to fade but then came back later on in the 1st tri (and I still have breast pain occasionally even now). I think it is totally normal to have some symptoms come and go. I did not have any m/s either, so it was quite a nerve racking 12 weeks, but so far everything is going fine. I am very happy for you and hope that everything works out this time. Sending lots of sticky baby dust your way!!

    Welcome and Congrats! I'm also just a little over 5 weeks. Usually, in my experience, there aren't a lot of symptoms until 6ish weeks. I have very mild m/s right now, and some stretching in my uterus, but that's it. Yes, symptoms can come and go. But it's SO hard not to analyze everything! I've done it every pregnancy. Hugs and sticky vibes!!
    MelBrody replied to MtnPrincess's response:
    Thanks for easing my fears everyone! I needed to be talked off the ledge a little bit. It does worry me with my pretty much only symtom fading. But as long as there is no bleeding I will try and stay calm. I just cant help but worry lol. 6 weeks is right around the corner so I hope for some morning sickness. Its funny how you hope for puking lol. My first OB appointment is not until Thanks again ladies!
