There's a few threads devoted to the symptoms we have, so here's a new one: What common symptoms are you not experiencing?

For me:

Not much moodiness. I get irritable every once in a while, and have cried a few times for absolutely no reason, but for the most part, my emotions seem to be about the same.

No constipation, for the most part (lol, tmi, I know, but this seems like one that EVERYONE has)

I haven't thrown up at all. I've felt pretty sick and I gag all the time, but no vomiting.

No constipation (fingers crossed!), and no vomiting (also crossing my fingers!), though I feel nauseated.

No sore boobs or change in them at all.

(Well, my 3 year old tells me that the milk tastes different, but no changes in how they look or feel.)

No boob tenderness (didn't get it last time either). Not constipated and no vomiting either. And way less moody than I was with ds. But the level of nausea seems to be making up for the other lack of symptoms.

Not constipated.
Not Moody.
My nipples are sensitive but my breasts aren't sore or uncomfortable.

I am tired, very sensitive to smell and sometimes vomit. Oh and on a TMI note, I was experiencing vaginal itching but baking soda baths have REALLY helped with that.

no backache, no soreness anywhere, no constipation.

This is the first time I've had no backache, but the first time I've been so tired all the time.

This is me, too. The smells are really bad for me this time. I hate the smell of the tap water where we live. We just moved to this apartment, and it's on different water than where we lived before. It smells awful to me, and I gag to even brush my teeth.

No breast changes at ALL. They always get sore and then get bigger, but this time they're just hanging there like they've completely given up (TMI!! ).

I just started with the whole vaginal itchiness thing, but I remember it from the previous pregnancies. I'd take a baking soda bath if I could snatch enough free time to actually sit in the bath tub, LOL!

I've also started getting really bad headaches.

i don't have nearly as many early pg symptoms this time around as i did whil pg with dd.

i haven't vomited, and only gag when brushing my tongue (but that happens even when i'm not pg)

my bbs aren't nearly as tender, but i guess that's what happens when you BF for 8months and then EPump for another 9mos.

i'm not having nearly as many moody days this time around.

i'm just generally handling things a lot better this time.

So, wait, this itchy vaginal feeling is a SYMPTOM??? Gah.

Ok, baking soda in the bath? Or just apply it?

Fiberlover,

The first day I made a paste and applied it but only for like a minute, then got into a warm bath that had baking soda in it. The past few nights I have just been putting a couple tablespoons of baking soda in the bath and soaking for a few minutes. It REALLY helps.

Not constipated...but I never had that with any of my other 4 pregnancies either.

No sore boobs...although every once in a while when dd2 latches on to nurse they are tender for a moment...but that has only happened a couple times.

No vomiting, although I am SUPER nauseous and gag ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT LONG! YUCK!

Thank-you!

I'm totally trying this tonight.

Now...what about the no-hot-baths thing? Just a warm bath?

Well, I tend to think "hot" is relative to the person you ask. I guess my baths could be classified as hot but I think its ok? I thought you were supposed to avoid like hot tubs and super hot things like that? Damn, there are too many things to know for pregnancy! All I want to do is sit in the hot tub having a glass of wine and a plate of sushi! J/K, LOL. Well, maybe not about the sushi part....

No vomiting, and very little nausea.
I still bleed, so lack of period isn't a symptom for me.
No moodswings.
No dizziness.
That's all I can think of for now.

I am not vomiting. I threw up once a few weeks ago but never again. I have some nausea though and can gag pretty easily.

I always pictured pregnant women with huge boobs and vomiting non-stop. I definitely don't fit this image.

I'm a little sad that I don't have the great pregnancy boobs. This is the first time that I've been nursing while I was preggers, so I wonder if that's what's going on???

I have nausea, but no vomiting. There are certain foods I can't even THINK about and I get that icky feeling in my tummy.

No nausea, nothing.

But I do totally lose my appetite when pregnant, especially first tri. I generally lose 10-15 pounds in the first 13 weeks. So conception-to-birth I only gain around 10. Makes getting back to pre-pregnancy weight easy!
