I usually join my due date club right away, but here I am already nearing the end of 1st trimester and not even feeling pregnant.<br><br>
This is our 6th baby. We're very excited about it. I'm starving constantly.<br><br>
I usually love being pregnant, and it isn't that I'm not loving this, I just really don't notice it unless I am hungry.<br><br>
Try having a sore throat / laryngitis and not being able to swallow. while hungry. starving. the hunger pains were horrible.<br><br>
I'm glad that's over.<br><br>
my backside is growing. nursing my 20 month old is uncomfortable. I'm napping (totally against my nature) that's about it.<br><br>
I'm looking forward to sharing this special time with all of you.<br><br>
Lisa

Do you think your lack of symptoms are related to your breastfeeding hormones? My symptoms have been very slow to kick in too. I was shocked to get my pos pg test because I had NO symptoms at all! And even now, sometimes the queasiness kicks my butt & I'm tired, but this is just not like my other pregnancies, the symptoms are so mild most of the time. The only difference for me (this is my 4th) is that I'm breastfeeding, I figure that's gotta be it!<br><br>
But anyway, <span>congratulations</span>!!! I look forward to getting to know you in our DDC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly">

This is my second, and the symtoms are a lot less this time. my breasts haven't hurt at all but are definitely making themselves known as separate entities these days. I have had almost no real nausea this time, but have had a horrible cold and have done a fair bit of cough and puke. It is so aggrivating to do that when you are not even nauseated. Glad it is going easy for you so far! I can't imagine having 6!

CONGRATS on baby #6! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: This will be baby #2 for us and I don't have nearly as many symptoms as the first time around, I guess every preg. is different. Maybe you just have a laid back little bean? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I totally think that's a factor. I noticed with baby #4 (the first pregnancy that came while i was still nursing) that there was no breast pain or soreness. I think that something about keeping them in commission during the pregnancy might prevent the pain. DD#3 did stop nursing during that preg and when baby came there was absolutely no "new nursing baby" nipple pain either.<br><br>
I think people should talk more about the advantages of constantly nursing because when you stop and start over again, with years in between, it hurts. just keep on going all the way through I say.
