Symptoms... or lack thereof??

Peeing seems to be one of the only 'symptoms' I have...
When I found out on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I Was nauseous all day... (probably only because I knew?)... My breasts are now a little bit tender (but not much) and there's those weird bumps ON my nipple (not on the areolas.. the ACTUAL nipple...)... I cry often and I'm very irritable..my sense of smell is a tad heightened.... and I get period-like cramps a couple times a day...

I really just don't feel pregnant... Is hardly any symptoms, normal?

I'm just so worried until I go for my ultrasound on the 16th... my biggest fear is having a second miscarriage... This baby is big time wanted... I'm trying not to stress, but I can't help having the worry...

Looks like we have the same due date Smile Peeing is my most major syptom this time for some reason (this is my 4th). I go through cycles of having my symptoms being very noticable, and then days they arent. Completly normal Smile The bumps on your nipples are glands. Just gearing up for lactation. Mine hadnt fully gone away with having nursed 3 kids before. The mood swings do suck, but luckily they do even out more as your hormones do Smile The period type cramps are ligaments stretching, and your uterus growing.

It sounds to me like you have a lot of symptoms Smile I totally get about being nervous. But, as long as you arent in so much pain you cant stand up straight, and arent bleeding, you should be fine. I had the same concerns this past week, and everything is ok now. I am thinking the same will be for you. I know its hard not to worry, just know that what you are going through sounds completley normal. Just know that I am right here with you, as so many of us are :grouphug:

I've been having to pee a lot and I've started feeling a little queasy in the mornings (but nothing major-I don't feel like I'm going to vomit or anything). I've been really emotional. I sometimes get cramps/little pains. Other than that I've felt pretty great.

I completely understand! All of my pregnancies have varied in the degree of symptoms but the exhaustion always hit right away (my first clue I was pregnant). And the queasiness (mild with some and bad with others) always hit between 5 and 6 weeks. With this pregnancy, I did not feel pregnant at all. I did have the heightened sense of smell and was super emotional but that was about it. I wasn't even that tired. I've had 4 losses in the past (2 in the last 5 months) so I was super paranoid. I saw a heartbeat at 6 weeks but when I still felt nothing at 7 weeks, I called my doc freaking out. I was just sure something was wrong. Went in and there was a healthy heartbeat and a baby that was now measuring 3 days ahead! Two days later at 7 weeks 2 days, the exhaustion hit. And the queasiness started as well although it has never been bad at all. I'm now at the point where I can hear the heartbeat on my doppler so I know my babe is okay. I know how hard it is not to stress but don't take your mild symptoms as a bad sign. I figured since the symptoms had always started around the same time with my 5 boys that they would this time. That wasn't the case. I'm sure everything is just fine!

Kinda OT, but I was thinking about buying a doppler. Belinda do you rent or own? And what brand? I was thinking of getting a sonoline b since it seemed reasonably priced.

me too, lyricly - i had a couple of queasy days, but nothing to the point of vomitting --i do have food aversions but they're not making me sick, HARD to tolerate the smells and thoughts but - again, no puking...
i think it may be early mayber, or if not - my 'what to expect when you're expecting' book says, 25% of women never actually get physically sick, and to 'consider yourself one of the lucky' Wink

The one I have now is one from a doctor's office my friend gave me. In the past though, I rented one from Babybeat.com . I know several women who got one off ebay and have great success though.

When I was pregnant with my DS I had almost NO symptoms. I felt strangely normal. No m/s, no nausea, a bit more tired and my breasts hurt a bit. I remember my breasts slowly getting more and more tender and I got more and more tired. But all in all I felt as if I weren't even pregnant.
