I’m in my 5th week and feel great. So great that I’m going to Atlantic City for the weekend tomorrow and i’m super hyped.
My only symptoms are: Dizziness (occasional),Gas, Pulling and tiny sharp pains in my abdomen, really thirsty, and always feeling hungry or that I can eat a horse. I also get winded or a faster heart rate easier but that is temporary.
The only additonal symptom I just started getting is sore nipples, but not really sore.
I’m not tired, I don’t hate certain foods (yet), I honestly feel great.
At what point/week in the pregnancy is it safe to say “I probably won’t get morning sickness this pregnancy” ?
Thanks guys 🙂

@BellaDee: I don’t know at what point it’s safe to say you won’t have it, but I was symptom less until 6 weeks and then MS kicked in hard (and wont go away). I hope that you are a lucky one that doesn’t have to experience it. Have fun in AC.

@BellaDee: sorry to say but you have a Long way to go before you can say that. 2nd trimester. I didn’t start feeling sick until week 6. Some people don’t feel suck until their last week, it varies.
ETA: being winded isn’t temporary. During pregnancy you use twice as much oxygen but don’t breath twice as much so you are much more winded.

MS usually doesn’t kick in until 6-7 weeks. I was 61/2 weeks when it kicked in with me and it’s still here (10w3d).
I don’t think there is any point where you can safely say you won’t get it. My sister didn’t get MS until 3rd trimester.

I’d say maybe around 12 or 13 weeks you can feel reasonably safe. Mine didn’t start until 8 weeks and I had it until 16 weeks. Occassionally people do get it later in the 2nd or 3rd trimester but I think that’s more rare than having it in the 1st.
I didn’t know I was pregnant until after 8 weeks so I can say that I felt pretty great around weeks 5 and 6 too! Since I didn’t notice anything really abnormal.

@MsJ2theZ: No, the temporary of being winded I mean I’m not winded ALL the time, only with obvious climbing stairs, running etc. I definitely know everything is changing though! That’s for sure.
Uhk lovely! well I guess I’ll take it day to day, because I do feel great (for now) lol.

I don’t think you can ever say that! I know there’s another bee, can’t remember who, whose morning sickness kicked in around week 30. It seems the vast majority of icky symptoms kick in around week 6. I’m in week 5 and feel great too – I think we should be counting our blessings and assuming next week may not be pleasant!

Yeah I agree with PP, you’re never completely in the clear. But I would think morning sickness USUALLY happens more in your first trimester, so 12-13 weeks is when people usually starts feeling a bit better.

@BellaDee: I didnt get any real symptoms until week 9. I was really thirsty in the beginning and really I still am.
Once 9 weeks hit I had daily “morning” sickness until about 21 weeks. I also had to go to physical therapy for sciatica issues from 14-19 weeks. That was the worst! lol
There always going to be aches and pains a long the way and they all develop for people at different times. Who knows, you may be symptom free the whole time!

@BellaDee: I’m about 8.5 weeks, and I felt fine until about 6 weeks. I was tired all the time, but in the last few weeks the nausea and exhaustion has really hit me hard!

I didn’t start puking until second trimester. Thankfully it only lasted for a few weeks.

@BellaDee: oh, yeah I mean you’ll just be nore winded than normal. Some days it’s not that bad and some days you get winded walking to the bathroom and you just have to laugh about how pathetic you feel!
enjoy every minute of this weekend and eat as much awesome food as you can and then just take whatever pg symptoms you get as they come! Your symptoms are similar to mine and when week 6 hit the morning nausea hit me hard! Literally the morning after a family dinner where I had told everyone I wasn’t feeling too bad yet 🙂

@BellaDee: My morning sickness began the very day I turned 8 weeks pregnant. 8 weeks exactly, to the minute, lol, There was no mistaking it and it was horrendous. It lasted until I was 6 months along.

I don’t think there’s such thing as a “safe point” to say you won’t get morning sickness. I had a bit of mild nausea early on in pregnancy (maybe around 6-7 weeks?) but actual morning sickness/throwing up hit me really hard at 14 weeks. I had just hit the 14 week mark and Darling Husband and I were on summer vacation. I had to get Darling Husband to pull over on the side of a busy highway so I could throw up (so embarrassing…lol). Anyway, the same thing happened to my SIL – her morning sickness hit around the 14 week mark.

@MsJ2theZ: oh great….I hate the feeling of being out of breath, that’s going to suck when it’s more often, I’m only 5 weeks..it’s weird having it now/so early.
Wow I’m noticing between 6-9 weeks seems the norm for beginning MS symptoms for the most part.
