I have had NO symptoms my entire pregnancy, and I am almost 17 weeks. I am also extremely anxious about it, but hopefully my experience will make you feel better. Do not Google! Google is the mind killer! 🙂

There is another thread on this board about missing symptoms that helped me a lot, I am seven weeks and the nausea I have constantly for the last two is cometely gone… Enjoy it while you can is all I can say. Maybe get some hgc tests just to keep your self sane but from what I have heard it’s early for them to come and go

You’re still really early. My major symptoms didn’t even kick in until half way through my 6th week

@Karie:  The only symptoms I had at 5 weeks was bloating and some cramping during the night, also increased hunger but I’m always hungry anyways so that wasn’t that different. Don’t worry, it’s still really early to feel a lot of symptoms, they’ll kick in soon.

@Karie:  The symptoms come and go, very common especially in the first trimester.  For the first week after my BFP I had cramping, tender nipples, frequent urination. Those stopped after about a week, then around 6 weeks the nausea and extreme exhuastion kicked in.  It was awful for 3 weeks or so, then stopped out of the blue completely (around the same time I fell down the stairs – cue freak out) then after a week of feeling great went back to feeling like dirt again until trimester 2 came around.  I’m 33 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby.  

It’s highly likely everything is just fine, so sit back and relax and enjoy the days where you feel good – horrible morning sickness could be right around the corner! (But I hope it isn’t!)

I know everyone is worried about MMCs and assumes a loss of symptoms means something is wrong, but plenty of people who have MMCs continue to have pregnancy symptoms.  There is really no rhyme or reason to it.

@Karie:  Like others have said your symptoms will come and go – im 30 weeks pregnant at the mo and besides being gigantic I dont have any pregnancy symptoms 😉 

 

This thread pops up on the pregnancy boards all the time! I think I even wrote one just like it at 7 or 8 weeks. Some days youll feel fab others youll feel absolutely terrible. Enjoy the symptom free days while you can. Stressing about a loss is not ideal at all 😀 good luck! 

ETA: If you look just a few threads down theres actually another one just like this…see, its common 😉

@Karie:   This was one of my biggest fears during the early weeks. Mine came and went, came and went and I was SO anxious. Seriously anxious, hysterical at times. I also googled missed miscarriages and spent the majority of my time freaking out that was what had happened. But I’m now 12 weeks and everything is fine. I can’t count the number of times my symptoms have come and gone but everything is A-OK. When I did have symptoms, they were pretty mild – like car sickness nausea, no vomitting. My biggest and most consistant have been sore boobs up til about 10 weeks and extreme tiredness from about Week 9. Wishing you all the best!
