I had sore boobs for about a week after I found out I was pregnant, then they went away. Other than that- really nothing. I am now starting to feel things from the weight of my belly, just typical back is aching, tired, uncomfortable etc. But I’m 30 weeks and barely had any symptoms! But I know your fear. I was scared during my entire first trimester because I didn’t even feel different and I was sure that wasn’t possible. But, it is!!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I had some minimal symptoms in my first trimester, although most days i had nausea. I never actually vomitted, thankfully, but i do remember thinking that it would be nice to have a few days with no nausea. Well, of course I got a few days without any symptoms and I was in the opposite boat: freaking out and wanting my symptoms back for reassurance, lol. Things settled a bit at my 7w ultrasound when they confirmed the sac and baby were in the right place (I was being monitored for ectopics) and further at the 12w scan. Everything is fine (I am 28w with #1), but yeah, sometimes our brains just don’t let us win. undecided I wish you all the best as your pregnancy progresses!

i was an IVF pregnancy so i was on progesterone until i was 10 weeks. after so many medicated cycles, my body was used to all the hormones.   so as soon as i stopped meds, nausea kicked in.  but it only lasted until week 14 and it wasn’t really that bad.

smells would get to me, but i only threw up a handful of times.

I started this same thread when I was around 6-7 weeks. And you know what? The symptoms never came! I NEVER got nausea, NEVER got sore breasts – NOTHING. Now at almost 22 weeks all I feel are the effects of the weight I’ve gained. In my personal experience, pregnancy has been nothing like what others make it out to be. I know everyone is different. Just don’t freak out if you don’t have a lot of symptoms because it can be totally normal.

Congrats!!

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I’m fourteen weeks and besides breast tenderness and random (once a weekish) puking, I don’t have any symptoms. I haven’t gained any weight but have new stretch marks around my lower belly, though I’m not really showing.

I actually feel pretty discouraged! I was really hoping to show by now. I totally understand now how women with wonky periods could not know they were pregnant.

HaaaveYouMetTed :  Hi friend! So glad to hear you are doing well. 

My symptoms kicked in at exactly 6 weeks and carried through to week 16. I was nauseas 24/7 during that time and vomited a total of 3 times. It was miserable.

 I know it’s hard but do enjoy this time with no sickness. I see you asked about a doppler and I LOVED mine so I’ll give you my recommendation. I had the Sonoline B 3 MHz fetal doppler. I was able to find her heartbeat at 9 weeks with it!

Other than exhaustion, I felt no symptoms.  I was sick for one weekend, but not sure if that was pregnancy related or not.  It was awesome but scary.  I have a happy, healthy 2.5 year old from that pregnancy.  

Seeing the heart beat is awesome and I love your 95% background.  I’m going to try something like that… 🙂

I’m 9w and also have had hardly any symptoms. Just some bloating (I have chronic tummy troubles anyway so nothing out of the ordinary) and tiredness. But I really don’t have morning sickness or crazy cravings and my boob soreness also disappeared about 1-2 weeks ago. But baby is growing normally and we have a strong heartbeat… try not to worry about it!

My symptoms were coming and going throughout the first eight weeks or so, and even at worst I’d say they were relatively mild – just tiredness, occasional cramps, nausea and food aversions, but no vomiting. I’m just about to enter week 18 and my symptoms continue to be bearable. The last scan was two weeks ago and everything looks good in there. 🙂

HaaaveYouMetTed :  I’m due 2/4 and I had hardly any symptoms!  The first thing I had was a lot of up and down emotions (like I cried over making dry chicken) but that was before I even found out I was pregnant.  The boob soreness was minimal and I had no morning sickness.  It was hard to believe I was actually pregnant.  The tiredness set in probably about week 8 and went away around week 16 or so.  I took a lot of naps when I came home from work.

The only other “symptom” I had was some dizziness depending on how long I went between eating.  I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes so that explained my symptoms.  I got permission to eat in my classroom (I am a high school science teacher) so my sugar wouldn’t fluctuate too much.

I can’t believe it’s almost over.

HaaaveYouMetTed :  Yay, so excited for you! 

I had a couple of weird food aversions during the TWW that prompted me to test, but otherwise, I did not experience much of anything until the bloating and fatigue started around 7-8 weeks. I was also queasy for a few weeks but I never threw up and by 15-16 weeks I want to say it was totally gone. I can definitely sympathize with the anxiety of a symptom-free pregnancy! On one hand it feels a little guilty, especially if you know women who have severe morning sickness etc., but on the other hand the “quiet” of it is really unnerving. I remember pining for a big belly and baby kicks so that the whole thing would feel “real.”
