I am due December 1st and hit nine weeks tomorrow, which I am excited about. But I feel almost like if I wasn't having morning sickness I wouldn't even know that I was pregnant.

I haven't gained any weight, my clothes feel completely normal, with both of my other pregnancy's I felt almost an instant change in my body, I couldn't sleep on my stomach anymore, I had lots of stretching pains, by this point with my DD I was in maternity pants This time nothing, I am still sleeping on my stomach, almost no stretching pains (must be I'm all stretched out). I'm just wondering if anyone else feels this way?

Feeling this way has definitely increased my fears that something may be wrong.

argh, I hit reply but it didn't post so sorry if this ends up being a duplicate post! What I wanted to say was that I feel similarly, Emily. I am only 6 weeks, but I don't have any pregnancy symptoms at all at this point aside from some fatigue. I know I should consider myself lucky that I am not sick (yet???), but somehow that sickness is a little reassuring too, ya know? I don't go in for my first appt. until May 8th, so I have a ways to go until I get some reassurance! Hang in there, Emily! I'm glad you got to see at least the fetal pole at your early appointment. Sounds like things are on the right track for you!

With DS#5 I was certain...CERTAIN...that something was going wrong because I felt phenomenal. I seriously had no symptoms, I lost weight, and even my husband said that he was amazed at how I was feeling. I was so certain that I was sitting on in the room waiting for the US I was crying to the doctor that I KNEW something had to be wrong because of how good I felt.

I steeled myself but instead saw a happy, healthy bean measuring 1 week ahead.

My entire pregnancy continued that great until the end. Barely any nausea, no weight gain, I ran up until 34 weeks pregnant and walked 3 miles a day until delivery day. He is the happiest, healthiest baby. And my delivery? It was perfect.

I know it may be of little help to you now but hold tight and trust that your LO is thriving. Hopefully the time will fly and your appointment will give you peace.

Thank You! I do just need to have trust and faith that everything is fine. My other two pregnancy's I had spotting and everything the 1st Tri. This time nothing, everything is going great. I'm starting to get energy back, and my morning sickness is slowing down from all day, to just in the morning. I don't know why I feel more nervous with this pregnancy than either one before.

:Lurking:

I have been having the same thoughts as far as being able to sleep on my belly. I went in today and it turns out that my uterus is already popped out of my pelvis (not too unexpected with my size, and the fact that this is #4). I know my uterus was tilted back and to the right at the beginning this time around. Also, I think that the placenta is more in the front. both of which can make you feel like you arent as big as fast. Maybe the same is for you??? I wish my MS would take a hike.... but, I know eventually, one way or another, it will Wink

I know what you mean. I feel the same way as you. I haven't been able to figure out why. I really think I just haven't let it totally sink in yet or something. I am sick and tired and all that stuff, but it still doesn't feel real to me. I am glad to hear I am not the only one. I didn't feel this way before in my other 2 pregnancies. I am sure everything is fine with your little bean though. I hate to say this but last time I was pregnant(when I lost the baby) I felt totally connected to the pregnancy and the baby from the beginning. I was so upset when I lost it, but I was also so grateful that I enjoyed my pregnancy as much as I did since that was my only time with the baby. Now that I am pregnant again and not feeling connected I like to tell myself it's b/c I will have plenty of time with the baby when it's born. Does that make sense? I am sure every pregnancy is different and before long we will be large and in charge and it will be all too real. Smile
