Am I the only one that doesn't get symptoms?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was 10 weeks along before I had any idea I was pregnant when i was preg with DS. I had no nausea, significant weight loss, nothing at all. Had NO idea. Had a history of irregular periods so didn't think anything of my period not coming for two months.

So I see all these people with ms and other symptoms. Anyone else really not have anything to complain about? :

Okay, I feel mean now. Sorry if I offended any of those who are having a lot of preg symptoms. I saw someone write they felt better having symptoms because they knew that there was something going on then, instead of nothing at all. It made me a little nervous. I'm really not believing I'm preg again. I just don't feel any different. I feel very very normal and it scares me a little.

So ya'll can throw things at me and then comfort me.

I posted something similar several weeks ago. But then my symptoms came on. That said, they're not as bad as lots of other folks' on here. I don't think you offended anyone. Maybe there's just no one else with no symptoms!

Hi fire.

I am only 7 weeks along and ms should have hit by now but it hasn't. I only and still have breast tenderness. I have heard that if you don't have symptoms you are carrying a boy. Who knows?

I'm a bit over 7 weeks and have almost no symptoms; only if I don't eat for over 4 hours or so I get a little queasy. And I'm tired, but that's really nothing new with the chronic sleep deprivation in our house.
It's feeling a little unreal, but friday I'll see my (new) ob and hopefully the little one on US..

My thyroid doesn't work correctly and I managed to write off early pregnancy symptoms as needing to go have thyroid bloodwork done and my dose of Synthroid adjusted-insomnia, bloating, fatigue and foggy-headedness are all symptoms I've had of being hypothyroid before...the only difference this time was that I was hot.

I'm almost nine weeks now and still have very few symptoms.

Hi! I'm a little over 7 weeks, too, and don't have any symptoms (a little bit of breast tenderness). Same thing with my ds (almost 3) - the only nausea I had with him was when I was brushing my teeth and brushed too far back on my tongue one day... Anyway, this thread just caught my eye and I wanted to respond that you aren't the only one (I am probably jinxing myself!) Off to introduce myself to this DDC

I don't feel too bad either - I had a backache for the first few weeks, but that went away. I have only occasional nausea that is usually solved with more food and/or water. I guess I am a bit more tired, but I've been scrambling outside to get the garden on order before winter, so that's part of it.

The only thing that's stuck with me is the sore nipples - if I even breathe on them they hurt. So long story short, I can't say I have NO symptoms, but on the whole they're very mild.

Hey, I just love this thread!

I get a bit of m/s, but never enough to even think I'm gonna puke. My breast are back to lumpy-like when I was bf and that's about it. Of course I worry because I have had a m/c before. But I also know someone who had awful m/s and then m/c. I have a u/s this Fri and l'd love to see a little heartbeat.

It seems to differ from woman to woman. My worst m/s and exhaustion was with my son's pregnancy; the girls' pregnancies were much easier. But I've heard it just the other way around from other women.

(By the way, based on my experience I must be having triplet boys this time around )

I too have very few symptoms. If we hadn't been TTC and testing I may not even know I was pregnant to be honest. I had a constant backache for the first 2-3 weeks which is now gone most days. I have nausea now and then if I let myself get too hungry. I am tired in the afternoons but that isn't abnormal for me as busy as I have been lately. I am very sympathetic to those with worse symptoms and pray mine do not increase.
