I didn’t feel pregnant until about 20 weeks with my first, when I felt baby move for the first time. With my twins I felt pregnant pretty much right away and throughout but that’s just because I had morning sickness throughout the first trimester and into the 2nd and then I got huge.
I think its normal for you to not feel pregnant with your first baby. You don’t know what to expect or look for. And you don’t tend to notice symptoms as soon as you do with your next pregnancies.

I had no symptoms other than maybe being a little tired until the end of my first trimester, and even then there was barely anything until I started noticing my belly growing. Try not to stress!

Thanks again everyone =]
@newname_99: US is scheduled thank goodness midwife asked if I could bare to wait till 12 weeks and I said yes bc I have been feeling much more symptomatic lately.
I think another big problem for a few days was that I’m a teacher and school just got out and I am home alone all day while dh is at work and it just caused my mind to wander to scary places.
Meanwhile I’ve been up since 5:30 for no reason other than I’m so nauseated I can’t sleep. I won’t complain too much bc it helps me feel like things are going right, although it still doesn’t rule out a B/O but somehow I’ve found peace about things, who knows if it’s to last or only for a few more days but for now I’m feeling much better.
Can’t thank everyone enough for helping out a skittish first timer

@ames12708: Good luck. I had a very similar issue. Before my 12 week I was scared because since even before my 8 week my symptoms started to ramp down to nothing by 10-11 weeks. I prepared my husband for a MMC and was really shocked at the U/S I was still pregnant. People would tell me stats and I would just say ‘But I just don’t feel pregnant anymore’. No one is going to convince you because none of us KNOW any more then you do about what is going on. But a lot of us have felt that way and been wrong (happily still pregant, but wrong). Read the page 11 of the June boards. I was trying to be cheerful in that post. It’s flipping scary stuff to go through and sometimes it’s bad and sometimes it’s not and on the internet you’ll find a lot of both camps. But Bad News usually gets posted more often. So google WILL make you a pessimist.

It’s really neat to see this thread revived, so I thought I should post an update especially for any newly pregnant lady who may read this and be feeling the way I was.
I am 34 weeks (tomorrow), and feeling VERY pregnant!! =D I have a healthy very active little girl who will be here soon! Yes I still get nervous or worry sometimes but I am slowly learning to accept that, that is how it will be for the rest of my life, because that’s what moms do right?

@ames12708: I think we’re twins.
I had no symptoms until week 24! And only then was it my bladder wanting to pee more. Then at 32w it was like a switch flipped and now I’m huge and uncomfortable. But it’s a nice reminder of what’s coming in a few weeks 🙂

@ames12708: I remember feeling the way you did early on as well. At 10 weeks all my symptoms disappeared. I remember feeling like it was too good to be true and very nervous about it. around 14-15 weeks even though constant nausea stayed away, I started feeling very sensitive around certain foods and am still like this at almost 17 weeks… so that made me feel better. From the looks of things though I have a healthy active little one in there…. still hoping everything will go well for us 🙂
Congratulations on being so close to the finish line!

LOL, I understand. Besides extreme hunger, I had no symptoms until maybe the 7th month. Even those were mild at best. Everyone said I didn’t even look pregnant (which was kinda insulting) although I have lost weight since I got pregnant. I though maybe my baby wasn’t growing right or something that’s why I wasn’t experiencing anything. Now I have 3 days to go and the baby is fine. It’s just different for everybody.

@Sassygrn: I am so delighted to hear this because I’m 20 weeks and I STILL don’t really feel pregnant. I said that to my husband the other day and he looked at me like I had three heads. But I never really had any symptoms! I certainly look pregnant, but still… hopefully it’ll feel more real when our baby starts moving (I’ve maaaaybe felt a couple of tiny somethings but can’t be sure until I feel more) and we know the sex (two more days!).
