Okay, so I am almost 7 weeks pregnant, and no morning sickness in sight.
Not even a sensitivity to smells.
It's my understanding that not all women get any sort of morning sickness, and even though a lack of morning sickness is correlated to higher rates of miscarriage, lots (though it's a minority) of women who have perfectly healthy pregnancies never have morning sickness.
It's also my understanding-- though I'm not 100% on this-- that if morning sickness is going to happen, it generally starts before you hit your 8th week (i.e., before you're 7 weeks pregnant).
This is my first pregnancy and I'm admittedly a bit neurotic in general, so I'm getting a bit antsy.
One possible "ray of hope?" I had been taking 100 mg of B6 every day for my shorter luteal phase (I just came off BCP in November), and it occurred to me last week that I should reduce my dose now that I'm pregnant (and my prenatals have 15 mg in them anyway). I did some research and decided to cut it to 50 mg-- but that's when I also found out that B6 is prescribed to reduce morning sickness.
So perhaps I've not had morning sickness because I've already been taking high doses of B6? Or that in combination with the possible fact that I'm less susceptible to morning sickness?
FWIW, my mother had plenty of morning sickness in both her pregnancies (an average amount). Also FWIW, it's not like I eat a bland diet or anything-- I just had a very hot curry last night. No food aversions-- nothin'.
The "good" news, in addition to many home BFPs, is that my temp has stayed high, and I have most of the other early PG symptoms, which have remained steady-- breast tenderness, some constipation, definite fatigue.
I guess I'm just asking for resources, anecdotes, anything... to give me an idea of whether I should be concerned, whether morning sickness (or at least smell sensitivity!) could start for me soon (here's hoping, LOL).... Etc.
*I ask in part because I've gotten many positive HPTs (I got BFPs for 10 days straight and the lines got progressively darker), but my MWs haven't recommended a blood test and won't even be seeing me until they can get a heartbeat on a doppler at around 10.5 weeks. I'm planning on telling my extended families around Easter/Passover (8.5 weeks) and I just feel like... I wouldn't mind something giving me a bit more reassurance that everything is cool. I know if I had my blood HCG tested twice, a few days apart, that it's too late to show doubling (?), so I guess I'll just have to wait...
