I got a BFP 1 1/2 weeks ago, but am totally unnerved by not feeling very pregnant at all! My breasts were quite sore around week 3 (leading up to pregnancy test), but now the soreness is extremely mild. Occasionally I get twinges of nausea so mild I think they could be in my head. They're probably not, but the whole thing is so mild as to be surreal. I did miscarry twice before at 4 - 5 1/2 weeks, so of course I wonder if the super-mild symptoms mean this one isn't going to stick. I'm at 4 weeks 5 days now -- I think it'll be a bit easier psychologically for each week I get past 5 1/2.

 

Of course I don't envy those of you with hardcore morning sickness ... but I wouldn't complain about sore breasts! Anyone else in this boat?

I'm not really having many symptoms. My boobs don't hurt at all, but then again I just weaned from BFing so that may have something to do with why...I also have very mild twinges of nausea.  My only symptoms really are being very tired, freezing, and crampy.  I'm trying not to worry, I didn't have bad m/s with my last baby either.  Some women just don't get sick, and we are also very, very early in the pregnancy.

I just got a BFP yesterday and the only "symptoms" I've had is craving Mexican food.  No fatigue (that couldn't be explained by a 14 mo old getting 4 molars at once), and no breast swelling (that couldn't be explained by a still nursing 4-5/day toddler).  No nausea, no nada!  I really expected the BFP to be a BFN.  But I told myself the same thing when I was prego with DS, there is not much I can do to change anything.  I can eat right, exercise, and take care of myself and the rest is up to nature.  I'm an L&D nurse and too many times I see someone eat McDonalds every day and smoke have a healthy baby and someone who eats all organic and goes to yoga miscarry.  It's just not up to us.  Of course, I've never had a loss myself, but seeing it at work makes it very real how common it is so although I'm sure I'm not as nervous as I would be if I had experienced a loss before, I am probably more nervous than the next mama.  Anyway, hth, that's what helps me.

With DD#1, I didn't even know I was pregnant until 8 weeks.  No symptoms at all to speak of.  And the pregnancy, and child, were perfect and healthy! :D

I'm feeling the same way. Occasionally I don't feel good in the afternoon, but I wonder if it's in my head. I was sick by this time with both of my girls. Maybe it's a boy this time?

I remember feeling fine until 6 or 7wks with my last pregnancy.  I also am only feeling hungry.  Thankfully, no nausea or sore bbs.  It can be unnerving to not feel pregnant.  Just trying to be joyful in this early time of knowing luxlove.gif

I'm definitely in this boat! I actually POAS'ed this morning just to make sure my little bean is still with me :) I've got frequent urination as a symptom, but my backaches have stopped, my cramps are mostly gone, and I've only been nauseous once. I'm telling myself that I shouldn't worry about it, I should feel lucky, and enjoy it for however long the mild symptoms last! I know that if morning sickness shows up a bit later, I'll sure regret that I was worried at this point... LOL

I searched for a forum regarding this and this is EXACTLY how I feel!!! In fact. I also POAS this morning to see if my line was any darker (it was :))

LivingSky, you and I have the same EDD!!! I am feeling a little "deflated" today... but I think it's because my gassiness has stopped, along with cramping and backaches. The only thing different today is that my breasts are feeling a bit more sore.

 

It's very hard not to worry going into this preg. since my last was so dramatic and I had a blighted ovum in the past. So happy have mamas like you as sounding boards!!! hug.gif

Oh my gosh, I was just  worrying about  this.  My breast tenderness has definitely lessened, but I didn't know if the fact that I have fibrocystic breast had anything to do with it (like I'd built up an immunity to breast pain over the years or something).  I do have some light nausea and cramping but it's easy to worry and over think things right now.

I googled a bit and it seems like on average, morning sickness peaks around 6-9 weeks. I noticed that most of us who posted in this thread are due at the end of July (my EDD is 7/23), so many people in the July due date club are 1-3 weeks ahead of us in their pregnancies. Hopefully all of our little beans will stick and we'll start to feel more pregnant in the next few weeks!

I am sure you worry and after my two m/c I worried like crazy during the pregnancy with my daughter. My breasts are way less sore than they were before

(40 months of nursing might do that to you;-)

Until today (6 weeks exactly) I almost had no m/s except a little queasiness, so slight I was also worried it was in my head. I was mostly freezing cold and tired (and still am).

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

So I have not had many symptoms either this time!  Last time I got some pretty bad queasiness and really sore breasts at about 7 weeks.  But up until then I was worried.  I remember posting a very similar post in my ddc then ;)

Well this time, I'm 8 weeks now and my breasts are not sore at all.  I had some queasiness but not as much as last time.  I do have food/food smell aversions.  I had some ham in the fridge and just thinking about it made my stomach turn.  And this morning, opening the trash and smelling last nights pesto pasta was blech!  I also had to pee a ton at first but that has slowed down now.  Still have to pee in the middle of the night though... :lol  And the hunger!  And the fatigue!  Oh my...those are hitting me hard.  So I really hope you are fine!  And your baby is sticky :)

Well, I'm the one who started this thread, and as I feared might happen, I miscarried today (10 weeks). greensad.gif  I guess for me, at least, when I have pregnancies with very few symptoms, this seems to be how they end.

 

Good luck to everyone else!
