5w5d pregnant and all of my symptoms have suddenly stopped as of 2 days ago. My inflammation markers are also quite high (vs. my non-pregnancy baseline). My first ultrasound is next week, and I’m terrified that I no longer have a viable pregnancy.

Thanks so much for your support and encouraging words. Happy to report that I had my first ultrasound today and all looked good. Know there’s still a long road ahead!

The same thing happened to my wife. She felt 100% normal after 6 weeks. The symptoms just disappeared and she said she no longer felt pregnant. She was terrified she lost it and nearly had a mental breakdown. Rest assured, we found the heartbeat at week 8 and she had a completely normal pregnancy thereafter. The little guy is two weeks old today!

Obviously every case is different, but please don’t lose hope.

OP hang in there, completely get how you feel. I didn’t have any symptoms apart from breast tenderness through to over 7 weeks once I tested and realized I was pregnant it would come in waves. I’m now just over 16 weeks and have had days where I don’t feel pregnant at all. Our bodies are amazing things and it’s crazy how much is going on in there - while we go about our normal day. Hoping all is well and you can get the assurance you need from your OB 🙏

The symptoms really come and go for me as well in my early pregnancy. And I was worried whenever I feel well that the pregnancy might not be going well, so totally understand your feeling! You’re just being an amazing mom-to-be. If you’re too worried check with your OB to see if you can have the ultrasounds a bit earlier but very likely it should be fine!

I had the same situation and am now 21 weeks! There are still days at a time where I have no symptoms and start freaking out but it helps that I can feel baby move every now and then. Hang in there mama!

I am at week 6. No symptoms until now except for slight breast soreness and difference in bowl movement. No fatigue, nausea and all. I was worried too but my mom said she didn’t have any sickness or nausea throughout her pregnancy

Every time I have a day of feeling okay, I think my baby is dead inside of me. I’m 16 weeks tomorrow. I have had insane inflammatory markers and was hospitalized countless times for infections, lymphoma scare, horrible pain, etc. Like all things pregnancy, either this is just pregnancy or things aren’t okay. Unfortunately, we can’t assure you that everything is okay because we don’t know. If you would feel better, make an ultrasound appointment for tomorrow and get everything checked out. It’s worth it for the peace of mind. Don’t hesitate to be a little dramatic to get yourself in there if need be. Good luck!

I'm a week behind you, my symptoms were so strong I thought I got cancer. Then once I figured I was pregnant it all disappeared! I’m having my 2nd beta tomorrow. Crossing fingers for all of us!

- ADHD is a disability, but it’s not the end of the world
- give yourself a break. Your brain needs it more than you realize
- medication is not a cure-all treatment. Medication + diet + exercise + self-organization is the key.
- ADHD causes us to feel emotions stronger than the average person.
- failure is inevitable, but so is success. Act accordingly, and be kind and fair to yourself
