I had the same fear as I lost the majority of my nausea and all breast tenderness mid 9 weeks. All is still well, but I was terrified of a missed miscarriage when I went in for my 9 week scan. Unfortunately, no one can guarantee a positive outcome, but for the vast majority of women, those horrible early pregnancy symptoms do start to fade at some point in the first or early second trimester. Thankfully most women don't suffer their entire pregnancies
I agree with others in strongly discouraging a Doppler. Not many women can easily find the fhr at 10wks. Remember that the uterus does not rise above the pubic bone in most singleton pregnancies before 12 weeks, thus making it difficult (if not impossible) to hear the fhr. Yes, some women will be able to as we all have slightly different proportions and anatomy, but it's not the norm and may cause major anxiety.
As hard as it was, I had to reason with myself that nothing would change the outcome no matter how much my heart wanted it so waited impatiently for that Doppler reassurance with my midwife at 12wks.
Hang in there. The fear is normal.....but most likely the lessening of symptoms is just nature doing what it's supposed to...giving you some relief. And as a final caution, you may still have days where those symptoms suddenly come back then disappear again. It's a fun ride ;-).
