first time pregnant bee here looking for some info. I am only about 3 weeks along (since ovulation) and am going on a trip very soon. So far I have had zero symptoms that I could call out of the ordinary or attribute to pregnancy. I’m crossing my fingers this is what I will experience for another couple weeks at least so I can enjoy my trip. Any bees have bad symptoms hit hard after having an uneventful first few weeks? would my doctor give me something for nausea *just in case* ?

I never had any symptoms other than being more tired than usual (but it was manageable ). They don’t always come.

My first symptom was a super sense of smell. Other than that, period-like cramping, fatigue and sore boobs were my only other symptoms. My nausea did not hit until about week 7 or 8 (and I didn’t actually throw up until week 9).

I started to feel like I was going to die in my 6th week. Started throwing up at 7 weeks. Before that, I was just tired and crampy.

I was just so so so tired from about 6 weeks. No sickness though I was mildly nauseous. The most difficult thing for me was the worry (and I’m not naturally a worrier.) Every cramp, twinge or pain had me in a panic that something was wrong and I really struggled to relax for the first 12 weeks which took a lot of the enjoyment out of it. It’s a tough couple of months for most people.
I doubt docs would prescribe something for nausea just in case. My understanding is they don’t Medicate unless it’s pretty severe – I managed my nausea by eating. Toast every time I felt nauseous helped massively!
Congrats though, it’s not all bad! It’s all been pretty smooth sailing once I got through the first tri!

Just felt like my period at first. Nausea hit hard at 6 weeks. Hasn’t gone away yet at 20 weeks. Super tired and exhausted all the time and sensitive to smell. This is my second kid and with my first I didn’t have any symptoms at all other than being tired. Every pregnancy is different, and it’s totally true!

I had zero symptoms initially. I became extremely fatigued about 6 weeks along but early on there was nothing.
Actually, this whole pregnancy has been uneventful. I had no morning sickness at all. The closest I ever came was some weird dry heaving/gagging early in the mornings when I first woke up. Never once have I vomited. I’m 24 weeks FYI.

Lower back ache around 4 weeks, and sore nipples. Not the entire breast, just the tip of the nipple it was the weirdest thing.

I never really had morning sickness. The fatigue was what got me. It was pretty overwhelming from about 6 weeks-14 weeks and I just now feel like I’m starting to come out of it. You never know how it’s going to be- id say pack some nausea aides and go have fun.

I was nauseous my entire pregnancy but it didn’t start until just around 5 weeks. But I had twins and my HCG levels were off the charts high so I think that’s a little early to start getting symptoms. Good luck on your trip!

I started with sore nipples and food aversions before I knew I was pregnant, neither has gone away. Now I also have intermittent nausea and constant fatigue.

My symptoms at 3 wks and 6 days was extremely sore breasts. I probably could size up a bra since mine were already a little snug. I felt intense fatigue at about 6 weeks. No morning sickness for me, but I read it doesn’t usually start until 5-6 weeks so you should be safe for your trip. You could get ginger candy just in case.

I found out at four weeks, but the week before I was very tired and nauseous all day long. I’m now 9 weeks and I am still feeling the same. I’ve actually felt awful the entire first trimester (no vomiting). I’m hoping the 2nd is better b/c we’re going to London.

It just totally depends on the person. For me, right away my only symptom was sore boobs. Then from around 6-10 weeks, I had a little bit of nausea and was famished in the morning, but it was nothing that would ruin a trip or anything. I just needed to eat a lot and felt ok. It tapered away and by 12 weeks, I had no symptoms at all. I am 19 weeks now and just a little extra hungry in the morning and craving sweets. Other than that and my emerging bump, I feel basically normal. Hopefully you’ll be lucky like me because so far this is not bad at all!

I am at 7 weeks now and my symptoms are super consistent. Bloated and gassy, cramping pains, really sore boobs and crazy fatigue. Also have pretty bad baby brain, I mainly notice it at work but my driving has also suffered. I’m usually a really good confident driver, but the last few weeks I’ve been hesitant and not always making the best decisions. Might be related to the fatigue.
