I got really lucky because besides being completely exhausted, I managed to get through the first two trimesters with pretty much no symptoms.  I did have heartburn starting in the second trimester but it didn’t get really awful until I was around 24 weeks.  I’m currently 36 weeks and have had a lot of the common symptoms of the third trimester like swelling, back pain, pressure on my pelvis, etc. that started around week 30ish.  Sometimes I feel bad that I’ve been complaining how hard it’s been the past few weeks because so many people have it tough all the way through.


ETA: This thread might be helpful.  Someone on the Bump adapted a chart to show the odds of NOT having an early miscarriage: https://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12575727/the-odds-of-not-having-an-early-miscarriage/p1

Yay for a healthy heartbeat! So exciting

My healthy pregnancy I didn’t have heaps of symptoms in the first trimester. I never vomited but would get nauseous on and off from 7 weeks to 14 weeks. Not that tired and no sore boobs or changes. My first 3 months were the easiest by far so symptoms aren’t everything.Β

Haha, I love the enormous 95% — I could use it myself! πŸ™‚

I heard my LO’s HB on Monday and feel like my symptoms have also been somewhat reduced, so you’re not alone there! It is a little nerve-wracking but as long as everything’s OK, we might as well enjoy it!

I’m 29 weeks now. My boobs were incredibly painful from literally day 1 and stayed that way until just a couple weeks ago. I was nauseous 24 hours a day starting around week 5 and that lasted until week 10, but I only barfed maybe 3 times. Other than that, this has been a really uneventful experience for me, so fingers crossed it stays that way for the next 11ish weeks!

I never got “traditional” pregnancy symptoms. I’m just over 17 weeks now and haven’t had any nausea, morning sickness, exhaustion, etc. My boobs didn’t get sore until week 10 or so. Now the only symptom I have is occasional light cramps and “feelings” in my abdomen and a terrible case of periorval dermatitis on my face which is thankfully starting to clear up a bit after a return trip to the dermatologist. I also have come down with shingles somehow, which they said was from my immune system being compromised due to being pregnant. Otherwise, I haven’t missed a workout and have been eating all the foods I usually love (and then some!).

I’m 13 weeks – zero morning sickness, but my breasts have been sore for about 15 weeks. Thank goodness for the ultrasound and Doppler!

I wouldn’t worry too much, you will just drive yourself crazy!!  I am 27 weeks now, and other than fatique and occasional sore boobs I had no symptoms at all. (which of course made me think something was wrong all the time, I even wished morning sickness on myself a few times as a sign everything was okay..crazy lady status)  Everyone is different, and just because the symptoms come and go doesn’t mean something is wrong! 

Good luck with everything!!

With my first babe I had symptoms around the time of implantation and the slowly tapered down from there.  I had some lingering nausea and was VERY tired for the majority of the first trimester but that’s it.  Very minimal pregnancy symptoms all in all.  With my second, I had no symptoms or indication of implantation but I got sore boobs around 4 weeks, and between 5-6 weeks nausea and general malaise set in with a vengeance and hung out till around week 18. 

Bee, there is no “normal” for these things and things like morning sickness and sore boobs are not an indication of a healthy OR unhealthy pregnancy.  The fact that two days ago your baby had a strong, healthy heartbeat should be enough to put your fears at rest <3. My guess for you is that you are gonna have a relatively easy first trimester, same as I did with my first!  Congrats on your bundle of joy!

I started throwing up from 5.5-16 weeks. It was awful, and really the only glaring pregnancy symptom I had. I am pregnant with twins though so I think the crazy HCG levels had something to do with the severity. On the other hand, I never had any boob tenderness and still don’t at 28 weeks. I remember googling “Is throwing up a reliable sign of healthy pregnancy” because I was so nervous about not having other early pregnancy symptoms!Β 

Once you see the heart beat, be rest assured that your pregnancy will very likely continue normally πŸ™‚ It’s so hard not to worry!Β
