Is No Morning Sickness A Sign Of Miscarriage?
One of the biggest fears during early pregnancy is fear of miscarrying. We watch for any small sign that may indicate that there is a problem. One of the things you may be wondering about is if no morning sickness is a sign of miscarriage.
If your morning sickness all of a sudden disappears, it could be a sign that you may be miscarrying, but it could also be caused by something else. Keep in mind that every pregnancy is different, and there are no hard and fast rules about what’s supposed to happen when.
In general, morning sickness is at it’s worst during the first three months and starts to taper off around week 12 – 14 of your pregnancy. If your morning sickness starts to go away around this time, it is most likely just a natural transition from your first trimester to your second trimester. Not all of us are this lucky however. You may not see a difference in your morning sickness until later in your pregnancy or may be unfortunate enough to suffer through it all 9 months.
If you experience morning sickness at all, everything may be just fine. There is a slightly higher chance that you may miscarry if you don’t experience morning sickness at all. The progesterone hormone is one of the hormones during pregnancy that causes you to get sick to your stomach. Low levels of progesterone can cause you to lose the baby. On the other hand, there are many women who have little or no morning sickness and go on to deliver beautiful, healthy babies.
If you have no sign of morning sickness and are concerned, talk to your physician. He or she may want to check on you and your baby and will be able to reassure you that everything is fine.
If you notice that your morning sickness suddenly goes away well before the 12-week mark and you also notice some spotting or bleeding, call your physician immediately. There is a chance you are miscarrying, but there is also a good chance that everything is fine. Having your doctor check on you and the baby is your best course of action.
Pay attention to your body and how it changes over the course of your pregnancy, but don’t take any little change as a sign of an impending miscarriage. If you are concerned, discuss it with your physician; otherwise enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible.
