In many normal pregnancies, some of the most common symptoms tend to fade away after the first trimester. You can imagine how great this feels for pregnant women – actually, the second trimester is considered by many to be the most enjoyable part of pregnancy!
But this isn’t the only time that symptoms fluctuate during pregnancy – they can change quite often. Symptoms can go on and off, and this includes random dizziness, bloating, fatigue, sore breasts, and all the rest. So if you experience changes in your symptoms, it’s more than likely just a normal part of pregnancy.
When to call your provider
If your symptoms have disappeared and you haven’t noticed any other changes in your health, you don’t have to reach out to your provider right away. Just make sure to mention the change at your next appointment.
However, if you’ve experienced a symptom change alongside other health changes, it might be best to call your provider. Here are the signs to be on the lookout for:
A loss of pregnancy symptoms and vaginal bleeding
A loss of pregnancy symptoms and cramping or pain
A loss of pregnancy symptoms and blood clots in discharge
If you experience any of these, call your healthcare provider right away so that they know what’s going on. None of these signs necessarily indicate any kind of pregnancy complication, but it’s best to let your provider know just to be safe.
When it comes to pregnancy symptoms, it’s always a good idea to keep your provider in the loop about what’s going on. But it’s really only necessary to contact your provider when you experience certain signs alongside a loss of symptoms. Otherwise, try to relax and enjoy the symptom-free days while they last!
