I'm Pregnant > Five weeks pregnant, no nausea. Normal?

Hi all. I am very excited to be five weeks pregnant, but feeling a little freaked out by my lack of symptoms. My boobs are sore, and I feel crampy, but aside from that, nada. I was definitely incredibly sick by six weeks with my DD, but I can't remember when that started.

I would love to hear some reassuring stories of people with few symptoms at five weeks who went on to healthy, happy pregnancies.smile.gif

I didn't really have any nausea at all at that point. Hungry a lot by 6 wks.

I'm at 11 weeks and haven't had any nausea - at all.  I read somewhere that 75% of women experience nausea - which would leave 25% of women feeling pretty good.  (I have NO idea where I read this, but it made sense to me.)

I get hungry and dizzy at 5 weeks, nauseous and tired at 6-12.

Thanks, all, this is reassuring.:)

Another "no nauseau until 6 weeks of so" Mama, chiming in to provide reassurance!

I had no nausea at all ... I mean none at all through my whole pregnancy. I was insanely tired and had wicked heartburn from practically the day of conception through childbirth though. I think you just never know. The symptoms vary from person to person. I wouldn't worry at all. 

Happy & Healthy Nine Months to you :)

I was never sick at all. I developed some weird food aversions along the line (mostly coffee, which is weird because I LOVE coffee) and maybe a tiny bit of nausea, but never really sick. My DH chalked this up to the fact that I pretty much never get nauseated or throw up, and predicted it would mean that I also wouldn't throw up during labor. But I did. smile.gif Of course, this is my first so I don't have the experience of having another baby as you do, but I have heard the same as PPs, that all pregnancies are different and symptoms can vary wildly. Congratulations and good luck!

No nausea at all with my first, but sick as a dog throughout my whole second pregnancy.  I'm sure all is well and congrats on your pregnancy!

Another one lucky enough to have zero nausea during my pregnancy. My biggest symptoms was fatigue! My body was changing of course so my pants felt tight pretty quickly and some sore/weird boobs, I was running warmer which is normal, strong sense of smell (things that would normally take a lot to start giving me a headache would at a slight whiff) and my emotions were all amplified just like PMS for me, but yeah fatigue wow was it strong!

I didn't have any nausea till about week...8? Each pregnancy and each mama is different, though! I was pretty sick for a while with my dd, not nearly as sick with ds, and back to holy-cow-did-I-ride-the-teacups-at-Disney World?? all day...

I'm preggo with #5 and for me morning sickness starts slowly at 6 weeks.


Erin13031's Avatar Erin13031 03:26 PM 09-06-2012

I'm 12 weeks and the only symptoms I have had are sore breasts and being tired. No nausea! I guess we are the lucky ones :)


KnittingTigers's Avatar KnittingTigers 05:35 PM 09-06-2012

Okay, here's an update. Six weeks today and I'm so sick I can barely function. I am trying to remember how freaked out I was, and be grateful for this nausea!

While that sounds like it sucks, I'm in the same boat you were in last week. just passed 5 weeks and am feeling pretty much normal. It's freaking me out.

 

I hope your nausea improves so you can function 90% but still know there's something going on.

Well, congratulations that you feel so good. I can assure you that it is no reason to bother - if you feel great, be lucky about it.


sageowl's Avatar sageowl 04:13 PM 09-11-2012

For me:

 

Week 5:  Nothing.

Week 6:  Hellooo nausea.  Ughh. 

 

I think last time it was about the same, although the food aversions are way worse this time around.


finnegansmom's Avatar finnegansmom 05:37 PM 09-12-2012

I've never gotten sick ever before week 7.  And then I feel like absolutely dog crap.  Fast. So take advantage of the time you have right now and do things you might not be able to do shortly.

My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage in March. I was only like 5 and a half weeks, but never felt any nausea then. Because I hadn't been nauseous then, I thought I would be lucky with this pregnancy as well. I got all the way to 8 weeks just fine. The first day of week 8 hit me like a freight train. My doctor mentioned that the baby begins to move around at this time and can cause you to be queasy... Weird.
