When did symptoms kick in? Hmm…never, unless you count the belly and the effects that come with gaining the weight.  

I understand the anxiety, as I would have found having more symptoms to be reassuring as well.  But my pregnancy has gone swimmingly so far and I’m at 38 weeks.

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I am still lifting weights! Using 8 lbs and 5 lbs depending on the exercise. So nothing too crazy. I’ve modified my ab sequence to avoid laying on my back. I am doing bird-dog, planks, and standing weighted abs. I am also still doing cardio on the bike and the elliptical. And I have learnt the pregnancy series for my Bikram yoga classes, so I’m doing those at least three times per week. This weeks I’ve been doing just light prenatal intermediate yoga videos on YouTube due to the shingles 🙁

Try not to overthink this. Remember that you really can’t do anything to change what is going on inside your body right now. Just keep making good choices, stay active, eat delicious and healthy food, and get good rest. Also, my midwife wasn’t able to pick up the heartbeat on the doppler until about 13 weeks for whatever reason. But on the ultrasounds we’ve been able to see it fast and strong. So please try not to stress, because that isn’t good for you or baby!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I don’t actually have one myself. My doctor used one at my appt yestersay. She did an ultrasound at my confirmation appt (8 weeks) and a Doppler at 12 weeks. She said she will check the heartbeat with the Doppler at each appt.

First off, congratulations! I frequently read the TTC boards and was rooting for you. Secondly, as hard as it is, try not to worry too much. I miscarried my first pregnancy and had so many symptoms- morning sickness, fatigue, etc. I had such a hard time believing the baby’s heart had stopped because I was having so many symptoms. When I was pregnant with my son, however, I was a bit tired in the first trimester but that was it. No nausea, morning sickness, anything. And he’s now a happy, healthy 16 month old. I hope this helps to ease your mind a bit- symptoms are not necessarily indicative of a healthy pregnancy, and lack thereof doesn’t mean your pregnancy isn’t progressing. I’ll be thinking of you and hope all continues to go well!

I’m 6w3d today and apart from the sore boobs, the fatigue and my lack of energy and enthusiasm for anything but my couch/bed/bathtub I haven’t had a lot symptoms. I had a few days were I was really bloated, but no nausea so far… I’m also quite irritated by my overall lack of terrible pregnancy symptoms and terrified of a miscarriage, but trying to be as positive as possible.

HaaaveYouMetTed :  Congrats! I know its super hard not to worry but try to think positive thoughts.

I’m currently 20 weeks pregnant (yay half way there!)and my biggest fear in getting pregannt was whether I would have morning sickness or not. I know its sounds super silly but hearing other peoples stories and the fear of the unknown were fuels to my fire.

Luckily I didn’t experience morning sickness at all really. I had a few weeks where I would feel a bit off and a few foods would gross me out but that only lasted a short time. I have actually had a great pregnancy so far and besides a pesky migrainer here and there I’m super lucky to still be able to keep up with my weekely gym routine with a few adjustments of course. So hopefully your pregnancy witll be as great as mine is going and dont let reading things scare you as you may never experience morning sickness at all!

I’m 18.5 weeks and I only threw up one time, it was after a really hot and turbulant plane ride.  The only symptom I noticed in the first trimester was fatigue and luckily that went really subsided around 13-14 weeks.

HaaaveYouMetTed :  It feels a little ridiculous as it is still so early, but I’m definitely going to buy a new bra next week!!! And it’s definitely not in my head, as Darling Husband looked at me the other day and was like “WHOA?! What happened to your boobs?? They’re massive!” 😀

HaaaveYouMetTed :  mine really came and went and freaked me out too – but I’m 15 weeks and everything is as it should be! First trimester was exhaustion with some nausea, but I never threw up. Also serious constipation so remember to get your fiber in! Also at the start of week 14 I noticed that my bump had shrunk and I lost my mind with worry, but was assured it was totally normal since my earlier “baby bump” was mostly bloat and what I’m seeing now is actual baby growth. 

eta: your boobs probably are bigger and it’s not in your head! I went up a cup size in the first few weeks! My husband wasn’t the only one to notice, the first time I saw my mom and one of my best friends they both said “holy ta-tas Lilli!” before even really greeting me hahaha
