I am currently 12 weeks pregnant! My pregnancy symptoms

Customer Question

I am currently 12 weeks pregnant! My pregnancy symptoms stopped at 9 weeks . I lost my morning sickness, sore boobs and tiredness! I also had bloating until last week and now have a flat tummy . I also don't have any cramping or bleeding ! I had gush of watery fluid about 3 times around 11 weeks and fear that I have miscarried or leaked amniotic fluid! my baby was fine during first ultrasound at 8 weeks with healthy heart rate!

if there is no pain and/or bleeding now, the pregnancy can still be intact. To be sure I would strongly recommend another ultrasound control, this is the only way to get certainty.

Hope that everything will turn out fine, best regards,

Is it possible to leak amniotic fluid this early? I also had watery discharge at 8-9 weeks but at 11 weeks i had a gush of fluid ! Also , can Doppler confirm the pregnancy instead of an ultrasound ?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

The loose of amniotic fluid is quite unlikely at this time, discharge can have a harmless hormonal reason.

Ultrasound would be the better way for a comprehensive checkup.
