I just don't feel pregnant yet.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I am perimenopausal, so my dates are questionable. According to my last period, I am 6 weeks, but I know I had egg-white cervical mucus on December 10th. I had three faint positives last weekend, but decided to wait to test again. I don't want to go crazy! Usually I am sick by now, so maybe I am just not as far along as I thought ...

 

The faint positives seem to go with the later conception date, don't they?

My conception day is November 26th and I'm 6 weeks today. I'd go with December 10th as your ovulation date. I bet you're more like 4 weeks and change.

i never go by LMP b/c my ovulations don't care when my LMP was. they happen when they happen (though this time was pretty close)

O for me was Nov 22nd.  Possibly a surprise Nov 16th/17th.  but going w/ 22nd.

 

still no real symptoms other than no period, dry eyes, weight gain, and fatigue.

Thanks, ladies! I got a darker test today, so I feel a little better. I guess if morning sickness and razor nursing kicks in next week I'll know.

If late ovulation is so common why do drs obsess about the LMP? My last birth was with an OB and he was really, really laid back about my dates. He realized at my age there's no telling. Maybe they're all like that? IDK

I think they just like to pretend every woman has a perfect 28 day cycle. Just like they like to standardize everything. :-P

Because it's scientifically proven that all women and all pregnancies are exactly the same:eyesroll

This has been my least symptomatic pregnancy too.  I was thinking miscarriage, but I'm 9 weeks now with no signs so I'm optimistic.  And yes, in your situation, I would think just later conception. :)

I am only 6 weeks but I am normally quite sick by now. It's. bit unnerving but I'm just hoping maybe this is what it's like to be pregnant with a girl!

Ooh, that'd be nice! I have one girl and then six boys. Another girl would be welcome but whatever. I was sick as a dog with my daughter, though.

still qualify for this thread and having m/c worries pop up a few times a day....

 

i'm just not feeling pregnant by any classic symptoms!

 

i'm still gaining weight.

still hormonal.

starting to smell very pregnant (i get a very earthy rich musky smell when pregnant, vs my usual milder bo.  but my husband actually finds my pregnancy smell very attractive which is good b/c it's so intense and nothing covers it for long)
and tired.

 

some evening queasiness, but w/ my 10 1/2 month old up a lot at night and nursing like a fiend, it could just be exhaustion!

I'm "feeling pregnant" but no crazy symptoms...just a general low level queasiness that lasts all day, bigger boobs, darker nipples, more tired then usual (but I am up with my toddler every night too) and lots of burping and extreme hunger. Nothing really "in my face..." except the hunger that is. Also a heavy feeling in uterus and peeing more.

I decided to go to get an ultrasound at 10 weeks to see if things progressed for me. 3 weeks away...

No worries, it may yet be coming. The only thing I had up to 7weeks was fatigue, and even that was mild.

7w2d hit and the nausea, food aversions, super smell, extreme fatigue, sore breasts, peeing every 15 minutes(I had to get up FIVE times last night) etc. have all kicked in. It's reassuring given my spotting last week, but I'm also wishing I felt a little less pregnant.

HouseofPeace I keep having that same conversation with myself at night. Is it night sickness or exhaustion? It's funny to see someone else say it. smile.gif

I'm still not feeling a whole lot of anything here either. Not usual for me at all, but trying not to read too much into it!

Usually Curious, you might want to join Sept 2014 as well... My EWCM started the same day as yours and I am pretty certain I ovulated on December 12, putting my due date at Sept 3/4 --so you might end up waiting longer than your August ladies over here.

 

ETA: You can also have extra EWCM during the TWW, so I wouldn't go by that absolutely as ovulation.

:truedat:

 

i did buy a bag of jelly beans and some hot tamales when out shopping today, and considering the last time i had candy was before thanksgiving at least (date night to movie w/ husband?) and i don't even LIKE candy.  i guess i want to count anything as a symptom!
