    @Gypsy37 I hope your symptoms come back to reassure you! I remember at 5 & 6 wks my symptoms were constantly coming & going. I had numerous breakdowns convinced it was all over. I also had a couple of bouts of spotting that just made it all so much worse. Wishing you all the best xx

    @Gypsy37 try not to panic. I've had disappearing symptoms the whole way through. Boobs especially are up and down. I'm 7 weeks tomorrow. They were sore Friday/Saturday then yesterday not as sore and today hardly sore at all. I've started morning sickness though so that's reassuring me. I had a few days of freaking out earlier on when I had zero symptom days.
    I had not many symptoms just minor ones weeks 4-5 week 6 my boobs started to get a little sore but it's been so up and down. I'm finding I'll have a few good days where I feel nothing then it's followed by a few days of symptoms then nothing again.

    @bubbles21 I had bloods done weekly for 3 weeks then my scan is booked for this Thursday. I would recommend weekly bloods for a few weeks just to get that reassurance. I did stat trying to compare lines on FRER but it made me more stressed so just waited for weekly bloods.

    @bubbles21, mine is weekly at the moment, not sure when that stops. I then have a scan at 7 weeks. I find the weekly hard, as I am just so anxious. I POS yesterday just to make sure the line hadn't gone fainter. It's so difficult, wish we could just enjoy this time without feeling totally paranoid all the time!

    @Gypsy37 can totally respect your fears after your losses. I'm sure you'll find it hard to shake those nerves all the time.

    I'm like the other ladies, my symptoms come and go. I figure if I have at least one each day (tired, sore books, sense of smell, hunger, peeing lots) I'm good. Funnily enough today was a minimal symptom day for me too. I felt calm as I woke up quite hot...so I've counted that as my symptom for the day. I also find that if I start to feel sleepy around 7:30, that's a good sign.

    As for bloods @bubbles21 I'm thrilled my clinic this time is letting me get bloods in the lead up until my scan at 8 weeks. They haven't stated I can get them weekly but just mentioned I can get them after giving me results. I've only had my positive blood test and one follow up bloods. I plan to get another one this week so they're weekly until they tell me I can't go back. My scan is in two weeks Wednesday

    My last clinic in Sydney only did my positive result bloods then suggested I book in my 7 week scan (with a scanning clinic, not even them) This was in 2013, not sure if it's changed now.
    But I was not educated enough to persist for blood tests. Well done for asking.

    @lotsathoughts it's good you get to do your bloods whenever you want. It's an awful wait, and I couldn't imagine waiting 2-3 weeks- eek! I'd be out of my mind! Boobs are starting to get sore again now, and I was talking to a colleague who is 16 weeks and she said she found it depended upon what bra she wore. So the sports type bras resulted in less sore boobs, which makes sense as I wore a sports bra yesterday. Maybe I'll just keep wearing my painful underwire so I can suffer, and have some reassurance Are you ladies eating super super healthy, or is the odd Tim Tam ok? My appetite seems to come and go, but Tim Tams never seem to be a problem

    @Gypsy37 definitely normal for symptoms to come and go!
    As for eating, I remember when I was pregnant with DD, just after I got my bfp, I started getting really hungry and was concerned thinking that if I ate too much from that early on then I'd pack on heaps of weight so started to make plans for a healthy shopping trip but then the hunger passed- it only lasted for around a week in that pregnancy before it was manageable. This time, I've just been eating whatever I feel like as we don't buy a lot of junk food and I keep thinking, the starving stage will be over soon and then I'll be back on track but it hasn't passed yet this time. I didn't put on huge amounts of weight with DD, as your body burns a lot to build a baby so I'm hoping it will be ok again this time. Thinking about it now, whilst I still get hungry, I don't think I'm as starving as I was so maybe/hopefully it is winding down.
    @hopefull29 with DD my clinic dictated when to have my bloods and after the third, they said everything looks great so you don't have to come back but if you want a peace of mind test at any time to come in. At that stage, I decided not to as everything looked to be going well and I realised it was easier in some ways without the numbers. I went 3 weeks from my last blood test to my dating scan. This time I thought I'd just do the 3 bloods again but after the third one, the nurse said I should do weekly bloods since I'm on the progesterone so I went back for a forth. I had a 6 weeks scan and my FS said she wouldn't worry about any more bloods for now as the numbers looks good, the scan went fine and she said that it only takes one of two tests to show that my body is absorbing the progesterone so she was happy enough. I was tempted at first to just keep going for them but have since decided to follow her advice. It's been good to not think about the numbers and also convenient that I don't have to make the trek into the clinic and drag DD along with me. It will be 2.5 weeks between my last bloods and my next scan. My FS did say that I'd start to drop back on meds from my next scan so I'd have to start bloods again from then.

    @bubbles21 I think @Annerley meant to tag you in her post re her bloods above. Just tagging you so you see it. x
    @Gypsy37 I'm still eating super healthy but I do have a few allergies & intolerances which makes it difficult for me to eat most junk foods. I think if you're body can eat it and feels like it the odd Tim tam isn't going to hurt. I wish I could eat Tim tams!! Yum! The only thing I've really changed since falling pregnant is I've upped my carbs a little. I was eating pretty low carb but now my body is telling me it wants/needs carbs so rice is on the menu every few days here.

    I don't really eat junk food either, just the occasional chocolate craving I've been going crazy on the kale and broccoli and having lean protein for dinner. Lunches are often a write off as I just don't feel like anything, I occasionally have a tuna and salad sandwich, or I might just have a few rice crackers. I'm also trying to eat 2 serves of fruit a day. All of the recommendations of what to eat are insane! There is no way anyone could eat everything they say we should eat, it's ridiculous. @hopefull29- oh no, allergies and food intolerances suck, though it's probably good you can't munch on the Tim tams
