QUESTION

Hello there.
I'm pregnant with my second child; it's still early days nearly 6 weeks. I know I shouldn't complain but it worries me a little.

I feel absolutly fine!

I have no pregnancy symptoms whatsoever. I was so sick with my first and felt awful for the first 12 weeks. Should I be worried? I know it's a silly question probably! Is it too early for symptoms to start?

ANSWER

Fortunately, every pregnancy is different, and you may very well have lucked out!

It is true that morning sickness usually means that a miscarriage is unlikely, but lack of symptoms occurs in nearly half the pregnancies, so there is not necessarily anything to worry about. You may just be lucky, OR having a baby of another gender.
