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 Dirty Delete would give a nice big stretch a remind me she was there πŸ™‚

@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! πŸ™‚ 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!!

@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! πŸ™‚

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? πŸ˜›

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜› 

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!!! πŸ˜€
