    Default Nervous

    Is anybody else not really having many symptoms? I have had a couple of round ligament pains and a couple of times I felt light cramps (almost a week ago now and none since). I think I've been a little tired, but not to where I have to take a nap (which is usually the case). It could just be from my 11-month old waking me up in the night. So I'm getting nervous, seeing as how this is my 5th pregnancy I would expect to have more noticeable symptoms. I can't remember when I had real symptoms during my other pregnancies, except nausea around 6 weeks or so, so I guess still have time for that. I'm debating picking up a dollar store test just to check, but I feel like that might make it worse. What if the line is lighter? Then I'd just be upset and agonizing more until my u/s in 2 weeks.

    It's perfectly normal to be symptom free at this point! I didn't have any signs till 6 weeks with DS and that was just a slight increase in using the bathroom. It was 7 weeks before nausea set in.

    If you are really nervous you could always call and get in for a hormone level check. If anything just to put your mind at ease. I cant wait for my u/s either. Mine is on the 3rd. Maybe this is just going to be an easy pregnancy for you. My sister just had her 2nd, she has a boy and a girl, and didnt ever get any real symptoms in the beginning either. She tested at least once a week till her 1st appt and heard the baby's heart beat. Hang in there, I'm sure everything is ok

    I thought about that, but I HATE having my blood drawn. I'm considering it though. Thank you both for the encouragement!

    Every woman, every pregnancy is different. If you're a bit worried maybe get your levels checked just to be sure.

    I'm 7w1d and the only major symptom I have is fatigue. I get the occasional wave of nausea but that's about it. I had some spotting in weeks 4 & 6. I also had to get up and pee 3 times last night. I think more nausea & possible vomiting is on it's way. This morning was a queasy one. I quickly ate a banana and some crackers and it went away.

    This is my first baby so I have nothing to compare it to.

    Oh Bet try not to worry. I know it's hard and I'm the queen of worry anyway. But tons of woman don't have many symptoms in the beginning or have none at all. Have you ever seen "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant?" lol. That's taking it to the extreme but you catch my drift. Plus you probably have changes you just haven't really noticed yet bc they are more subtle. I agree if you can get your numbers ran (my drs office won't do it) then that will help ease your mind. Can't wait to hear about your u/s!

    I've worried a few times I was losing my symptoms but now that I'm a little further along it seems that I go in cycles where I feel like crap for 3-4 days then I have 3-4 good days. When I was around 4 weeks I didn't feel much except sore boobs and that's common for me anyway. My symptoms didn't kick in really noticeably until 6 weeks. I also haven't been unusually fatigued really which is super weird for me. Everything makes me tired so that surprises me. I'm a huge napper and it's just not happening. Lol. I'm sure everything is just fine. I'd also say it might be worth it to get your levels done because it's quick and easy and could give you some peace of mind.

    Some days I have a ton of symptoms (fatigue, hunger, sore bbs, cramping)...and others I have not so much. I wouldn't be concerned about a lack of symptoms unless you are severely cramping and/or bleeding. Try not to worry! (easier said than done, I know)

    Mine didnt really kick in until 6-7 weeks

    With my last pregnancy it seemed like I was full blown with symptoms the day after my BFP

    So just count your blessings for now!! Im sure the train is comin

    Although, I know what you mean, as much as I hate being sick, it IS comforting, and the moments where I feel good and should be happy about it- I just worry why there ARENT any symptoms! Ughhh pregnancy is so frusterating at times
