Does anyone not feel pregnant at all?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Aside from the tests that are telling me so, I just don't feel pregnant. My breasts are heavy and tender, but that happens before my period also.

 

I'm somewhere between grateful for the lack of symptoms and a little bit uneasy with them - at least extreme morning sickness is a constant reminder that you are, indeed, pregnant!

 

I'm just SO excited for the upcoming milestones - the first ultrasound (in just over 2 weeks!), feeling movement for the first time and starting to show. I have waited and waited for years for this little one - I couldn't be more excited, but feeling like I'm holding out for that first ultrasound to be really sure this one sticks. I don't want to fall in love and have my heart broken again, you know?

 

(With that said, I think I'll go through my old maternity clothes and some hand me downs I have today - do some laundry, hang some up in the closet for the upcoming weeks. That's my attempt at having faith and being positive!)

I am with you. I have some fatigue, but only mild breast tenderness. I keep wishing my breasts to be so much more sore, and I am grabbing them like a lunatic. I actually think they are less sore today, which is freaking me out! How far along are you? I'm only 4w2d. I am also quite scared about it not sticking, but am trying to stay positive as well!

I was just talking about this last night. I guess I feel a little here and there but nothing huge. My toddler is still nursing though and when he latches on yikes.gif . I do hope the all day nausea is manageable this time when it comes 'round though because I have waaaaaay too much to do to be knocked down like I was the last two times I've been PG. Maybe being off grains will help this time praying.gif (though I'm considering throwing some teff back into the mix for me).

I'm 4 weeks today. It's just so different from my pregnancy two months ago when I had so many symptoms so early on!

my symptoms keep coming and going too.  it's unnerving, but I definitely remember it being this way with my first too.  although last time i definitely "felt" pregnant, this time i don't.  i think i am with you - once i hear the heart beat it will become a little more real....my first appointment isn't until the 5th, and I think that's a welcome visit...i may have to wait until the 12th for my first real checkup.  On one hand I am going crazy waiting, but on the other hand, there really is nothing really to DO but wait at this point! For another 9 months!! Gah! I can't believe I am already impatient.  I have my paranoia about this not being a sticky baby too, but I am just trying not to focus on that...just trying to focus on giving my toddler attention.

I have a surprising lack of symptoms so far too.  Some breast soreness which is occasionally intense.  Slight nausea for brief periods of time.  Acne...yay!  Insomnia for a couple of hours almost every night, but crazy dreams when I do sleep.  Today though I really felt that I could feel my uterus (like it feels when you're further along) being smushed when I squatted.  I squat a lot at work. 

I'd like to think the delay in intense symptoms is because I'm healthier now and juicing organic fruits and almost every day. But it's probably coming any minute!

Thank you for posting this!  I feel so much better to know that I'm not the only one.  

 

My only other pregnancy was a m/c so I'm going to go ahead and freak out until the 15th, which is our first appointment.  My breasts were never sore the first time, but they are definitely sore-ish this time around.  I get pretty tired in the afternoons, then again, I have been to Kansas City, Memphis and Atlanta within the last three days.  Still, I'm glad that I'm not the only one!

 

My sister had her baby on Monday, though.  :)  9 pounds, 21 inches.  Yee-ow!

Me too. I've been doing my best not to obsess too much this time around (only peed on one stick, for example), but my only other pregnancy ended in a missed m/c a week after seeing a strong heartbeat at 6w2d. I just wish I felt more clearly pregnant. (Of course, I have also heard of women who puke for weeks straight and it turns out that they have a blighted ovum. So, I guess puking isn't always a sign that everything is going well.)
