I’m just about 5 weeks along; we just found out last week. My BFP was an instant double line HPT, there was no eye-squinting necessary! I have had very sore boobs, very tired and I’ve been a little dizzy at times….but no morning sickness, no nausea, nothing. I’m so nervous about miscarriage; I’m taking my vitamins, eating very healthy pregnancy “superfoods”, taking it easy… I couldn’t get a Dr appt until March 6th so I’m worried about how everything is progressing and not being able to track how my numbers are doubling every day.
I’m wondering why I haven’t had any nausea yet….could it mean theres a problem? I know its different for everyone, but when did it start for you? Am I being overly concerned??
First timer here…..

No nausea is definitely not indication of a problem. Stop worrying and count your lucky stars 🙂 About 25% of women never get it.

@mudrat2: This is my second pregnancy but with DS I had no MS at all. With this pegnancy it didn’t hit until 6 weeks and it still comes and goes. You are still early and not everyone gets MS.

you def. need to relax or it is going to be a looonnnng 40 weeks 🙂 I didn’t have any MS for the first 6 weeks or so, then it hit. Honestly, enjoy feeling good now, once it hits you could be in for not feeling well for a couple months….

5 weeks is very early for m/s. Mine didn’t come until after 6 weeks. If you research it (I did a few weeks ago), most don’t get m/s until 6 weeks or later. And 25% won’t get it at all. 🙂

Ok, you’re making me feel better….I’m so nervous because a friend of mine had a MC after her doctor noticed her numbers weren’t doubling. She didn’t have any nausea. Guess we’ll wait and see, but thank you everyone. this is so new to me!!

It would be pretty early if you are 5 weeks to be getting morning sickness- most people it doesn’t start until 8-9 weeks at the earliest.
I know it’s really stressful at the beginning to wondering if the baby is sticking- even if you have no reason to think something’s wrong- but honestly that’s how it is for a while. After you have your first ultrasound, the doctor only sees you monthly for checkups so there isn’t any kind of monitoring on a daily or weekly basis unless you are high risk for some reason. So until you can feel the baby moving- which is around 20 weeks or so- you really have no idea what’s going on. It sucks but there is nothing you can really do except take care of yourself and try and not stress about it.

I wouldn’t worry, and I also wouldn’t count on not having morning sickness. I didn’t get morning sickness until about 9-10 weeks along.

If it makes you feel any better…I’ve had 2 MCs and am now pregnant and I had morning sickness with all of them. So having/not having morning sickness doesn’t necessarily mean one thing or another.
With all 3 pregnancies, my M/S didn’t start until the 6th week…and with my pregnancy now, it’s pretty bad. I’m 9w 4d, so be thankful you don’t have it yet!!

@2Peas ok, thanks. take comfort in knowing you’re making me feel better even when you’re feeling so awful.
@dookie yes I’m stressed (does it show?) but I think I’ll feel better after I see the doctor. I’ll try to relax…

@2PeasinaPod: ditto. It’s not a good sign or a bad sign. I’ve had it with all pregnancies, losses or not.

I agree with everyone else that everyone’s different. My SIL had horrible morning sickness with my nephew and said she started to get it when she had a very early miscarriage (4 weeks or so). I have had no morning sickness at all (well, one day I got sick but it lasted about 15 minutes so I don’t think it counts) and have had a great pregnancy so far.

Would it be ridiculous if I went to the Dr for a blood test prior to my first appointment?
