It’s normal. I’m 30 weeks and still there are moments when I don’t feel pregnant. I was lucky, I had it easy and up until week 27 I was pretty much in my own clothes and had to deal with just a bit of exhaustion and heartburn! Just relax and enjoy it 🙂

frommisstomrs.:  100% normal. I barely had any symptoms during my first trimester, only extra fatigue and a little nausea if I didn’t eat regularly (and even that only lasted weeks 8-11). Now at 22.5 weeks, I still only feel pregnant when she gets kicky or when my clothes don’t fit, haha.

frommisstomrs.:  its completely normal!!! I dont think it really hit me that i was pregnant until i started to feel flutters (around 16wks-18wks). Lol, and then once i started to show, I kept telling myself “there is a tiny human in there!”

Totally. I actually just wrote an email to a good friend talking about how nice it’s been to finally FEEL pregnant. It wasn’t until there was a confluence of three things – the 20w anatomy scan showing that everything looked good, becoming really obviously/visibly pregnant, and feeling the baby move very distinctly, all of which happened between 20-23 weeks – that the pregnancy started to seem truly real to me. Before that I had pregancy symptoms (nausea/vomiting, exhaustion, clothes not fitting) but it still didn’t feel like there was another little being in here with me.

frommisstomrs.:  Unless you have extreme morning sickness you won’t really feel pregnant until you feel flutters/movements.  I didn’t have any morning sickness and never felt pregnant until felt the first flutters

frommisstomrs.:  Yep, completely normal as you’re still very, bery early and hormones are just starting their rise. I started that way (had exhaustion too that early and through the first tri) and then bam! symptom after symptom as each week progresses. Sore breasts, dizzy, nausea, nausea and daily vomiting, dizzy again, stuffy nose daily now that I’m almost 15 weeks. It just took a few weeks for the hormones to get where they needed to affect my body. Enjoy the time and serenity now. Who knows what the next few weeks will bring!

I had extreme morning sickness and still didn’t feel pregnant until I felt the baby kick around week 19. It’s normal 🙂

Congratulations!!!

Yup! I had none of the typical symptoms. Had some headaches in second trimester but that was in. Heartburn much later on.

frommisstomrs. It’s perfectly normal. You may be gassy or tired now, but that’s it. Around 5-8 weeks you typically feel hungover and from 8-12 may be really rough. If you have no symptoms at 8 weeks, that’s when to think about worrying. Seriously, they’ll come and enjoy feeling okay.

PS– congrats! Sparkling water will be your best friend when the symptoms hit!

Totally normal, I felt great with my son and so far at 12w I’ve felt great up to this point this time as well. However, symptoms can set in at any time, I hope your pregnancy remains easy!!! Congratulations and good luck!!
