I am 20 weeks today and I don’t feel pregnant AT ALL. I don’t have sickness, no aches and pains, swollen feet, nothing at all. I’m not complaining I just get sad sometimes. If it wasn’t for her moving around in my belly and being able to feel her I wouldn’t even know I was growing a human! lol
Anyone else go through this?
I feel like I’m missing out kinda.

I’m only 13 weeks but I can totally relate. I didn’t have very many pregnancy symtoms other than acne and fatigue. I think most will tell you to be happy that you are so lucky! That’s what I’ve been hearing anyway. Congratulations!

I’m just now 22 weeks and I feel the same way and to me I love it! I see and hear pregnant friends constantly complaining and here I am feeling like I can take on the world! It is even nicer when people still feel the need to spoil me and let me rest more often then I feel like I need. In my opnion I also look better because of it and am able to take better care for myself because I have more energy than other pregnant women I’ve seen/ been around. I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible before the aches and pains set in.

@figgnewton: thank your lucky stars, lady!
Just kidding mostly. But yeah I went through the same about week 18-24. Felt fantastic and barely could tell I was pregnant unless I saw the bump or felt it move. and maybe a little when walking upstairs. But don’t you worry. Now at 28 weeks, there’s no doubt that I’m feeling it everywhere.

I was saying something like that last night to DH! I have so thankful that I have not been sick…but at 18 weeks I don’t look pregnant (just a bit chubbier) and I am not feeling anything yet! Thank goodness I had regular periods before, or I could probably be one of those women that don’t know they are pregnant to halfway (or further) through!

No no I’m pretty darn thankful I feel ok and have no symptoms lol Although it is reassuring when I feel baby 2.0 moving in there. I have cried a couple times thinking I just look fat and not pregnant. I’m kinda hoping the big ole belly kicks it into gear soon because at least I think I look cute pregnant lol

@figgnewton: I felt the exact same way! I had no sickness at all, I carried very small, plus I felt great the entire time. I often didn’t feel pregnant, but than Dear Daughter would give a nice big stretch a remind me she was there 🙂

@figgnewton: Don’t worry, you’ll feel pregnant soon enough.
I didn’t start feeling aches and pains until recently, and I’ll be 30 weeks next week. It could be because I’m a nurse though and I’m on my feet all the time. Also, some people never get swelling or anything – I don’t yet, and I’m thanking my lucky stars, although I know a lot of women who started swelling more towards the end.
Also, be happy you feel the baby moving a lot! 🙂 I have an anterior placenta and while I definitely feel him more then before, I definitely don’t feel the constant strong kicks that a lot of women feel, and it’s a constant source of stress for me throughout the pregnancy.

Oh you will feel pregnant. I was the same way, not a symptom. But now I am 36 weeks pregnant and believe me, you will feel pregnant and miss the day of being 20 weeks and running around… don’t wish it away!!

Oh just wait.. .I went through that blissful period in my second trimester…. I’m 30 1/2 weeks now and boy do I feel pregnant. At all times. LOL!

@figgnewton: I am not pregnant but I wanted to send you a beeeegggg internet hug. If it makes you feel better, my sister didn’t even show with her first until after 5 months and she didn’t get sick or swollen or anything either. With her second she was HUGE and she was having a VERY unglam pregnancy, including peeing herself and getting morning sickness all the time. She longed for a repeat of her first pregnancy.

@figgnewton: why did you think “feeling pregnant” is only the negative and uncomfortable symptoms you mention? the lucky ones have a bit of an unpleasant beginning, and then it’s rosy until the end. Besides, if you’re feeling the baby MOVE I thin that should count! 🙂
consider yourself blessed and enjoy it!

I have had a fair amount of pregnancy symptoms, but even now, at 37 weeks, I often don’t feel pregnant. I feel large and achey, but no necessarily pregnant. I think it’s just a weird concept to wrap your head around — for me, at least. Maybe I’ll finally feel pregnant when I go into labor? 😛

I defiantly feel the same. I am also 20 weeks and feeling great & still not feeling connected to this whole experience! I’m trying to stay positive though because I am sure it will come at some point and I will want this good feeling back 🙂

Oh my, I am feeling fantastic but certainly not minding it one bit. I am like completely over-joyed that I can eat whatever I want now without completely cringing (albeit some things give me some pretty wicked heartburn). I don’t feel super exhausted or achy most of the time, I basically just feel like my old self with a growing belly that gets kicked a lot from the baby. I felt like such a train wreck first semester that I’m hoping I stay feeling this way for as long as possible!!! It’s pretty entertaining to feel baby kick all day and that is proof enough for me that I am pregnant!
Oh wait, does getting out of breath walking like 3 blocks count as a pregnancy symptom? Bc I have that pretty bad…haha 😛
ETA: it’s probably a good thing I had a miserable 1st trimester or else I might end up wanting like 10 kids. I actually love being pregnant right now and I love kids so much! It’s also a good thing I feel great now because if I felt miserable my entire pregnancy, this little guy may have been an only child haha. Oh and I LOVE not having a period every month! I am sooo hoping that when I Boyfriend or Best Friend it stays away for a good long while!!! 😀
