So all I have at the moment are sore boobs and hunger. But I have absolutely no morning sickness and it worries me?? (I know I should be happy), but I read that 70+% of woman have morning sickness. I am only 5 and 3 days preggers.  Is it something that comes later on?

Anybody else get no morning sickness in 1st trimester?

I have had a miscarriage before so I am worried that its just a sign that my hcg levels are too low.

I didn't get any morning sickness.  It was great!

I started to get mild morning sickness at 6 weeks and by 8 weeks I was definitely aware of it!

I wouldn't stress (easier said then done). It's still early days for you. Maybe you'll skip morning sickness all together!

There was another thread on this subject yesterday, with heaps of replies - might make you feel better if you can read that one.

But I had my 3 pregnancies, feeling pretty much normal, other than a bit tired.  No MS.

Then I had 3 miscarriages, and one of those I was extremely sick.  This pregnancy I had awful nausea from week 4 to week 10 (and seems to have returned this morning at 15 weeks Bleh!), and all is going well.

It's really no indication of how well your pregnancy is going.  Hopefully you are just lucky original.gif

I had no morning sickness at all, not even the slightest bit of nausea.

I only had a bit of nausea, and mostly in the evenings.
Don't worry about it. I read it normally kicks in after 6 weeks, so who knows, in a few days you might be regretting this post!

As you say, 70% of women get it, which means 30% DON'T.

I really had no morning sickness with either of my kids, but I do remember the tired, slightly nauseous feeling kicking in at closer to 8 weeks. Was really nothing though I also remember worrying. I have 2 very healthy little munchkins running around so I don't think the "morning sickness means healthy baby" holds much merit. Count your blessing - you never know, it may be just about to rear its ugly head (but hopefully not!) All the best for your pregnancy.

First pregnancy - zero sickness.

Second pregnancy - mild nausea, but nothing terrible.

This pregnancy - 24/7 nausea but only one or two vomits, and stopped abruptly right on 9 weeks.

All pregnancies have resulted in a healthy baby, and this pregnancy so far so good at 32 weeks. Sickness doesn't really mean anything.

I had some very mild nausea kick in at 6 weeks, but as long as I ate every 1.5 - 2 hours it was barely noticeable...  my boobs didn't start getting sore until after 6 weeks either.

The exhaustion on the other hand hit me about then too an lasted until I was past 14 weeks!

I'm 34 weeks now with a very healthy baby.

I've had 4 pregnancies, 3 that made it far enough for morning sickness, and this is the only one that has made it past 13 weeks - and I had the mildest symptoms with this one!   Symptoms really aren't an indication of a pregnancy's health!

I think you started the other thread too?  It sounds like you are really struggling with anxiety at the moment.  I completely understand - the first 12 weeks of this pregnancy I was a complete wreck! My OB was wonderful and was able to see me regularly to help reassure me, plus recommended I speak to a counsellor. It's probably worth seeing your GP and having a dating scan in a week or 2 to help calm your nerves, and possibly look at seeing a counsellor to help you deal with the anxiety.

Good luck - I'm sure everything is fine!

It wasn't until around week 12 that I started to feel sick. Before that I was eating for a team of footballers, but nothing else. Oh and my boobs are only slightly bigger and at 15+4 weeks now. I'm still wearing all my pre pregnancy clothes, I've just returned from a beach holiday where I couldn't help but compare my little almost non existent bump to other women in their bikini's and whining to my husband about when will I look pregnant, if it wasn't for the heartburn at the moment I would too be wondering if I was pregnant.
People can't tell you enough that every pregnancy is different. Just remember that, and sometimes reading these forums can add to your worry and stress.

I barely noticed the difference between being pregnant and not!

Lack of symptoms is not a sign of a non viable pregnancy. Enjoy it OP!

I am now 15 weeks pregnant. I never suffered from any morning sickness at all in the first Trimester or even now. I was very hungry too and my boobs were extremely sore.. but I dont believe that you have anything to worry about.
I too had a misscarriage 2 years ago... stay positive and think you are very lucky not to have morning sickness :-)

I had no morning sickness with my 1st pregnancy and she's now 8 :-) with my last pregnancy i had terrible morning (all day) sickness and Sadly miscarried. I'm about 6 weeks now and so far i have my good days and bad days with morning sickness but not as bad as last pg. As pps have said it really isn't an indication of a healthy pregnancy or not. All the best for you. Hopefully you're one of the 30%.

No need to stress - I was barely touched by it. At worst I didn't feel like cooking and my stomach felt a bit 'icky' - like I just needed some eno or something fizzy. I had a weird taste in my mouth too so minties and peppermint tea were my lifesaver. I was like you where I just felt tired and my boobs were a bit sore off and on. This only lasted about 3 weeks from about 6 weeks. Then it ended out of nowhere after I had 1 vomit after a large meal. That was it.

Everyone and every pregnancy is different. My friend who has recently given birth had no morning sickness until her 28th week! She thought she got out of it all together. So you may still have time to get it.

Morning sickness is not a sign as to whether your pregnancy will be viable. This is an old wives tale they tell women who have it so they can cope better.

Live it up while it lasts!

Congratulations ! biggrin.gif

BTW - Sometimes even now I don't 'feel' pregnant. Only when the baby moves, kicks or hiccups do I feel pregnant (of if I look in the mirror). . I get anxious sometimes in the mornings thinking where has my bump gone but it's there when I sit up. I had a moment at 10 weeks when I was sure I was going to lose the baby because I didn't 'feel' pregnant. I think all of us feel this way at random times during the pregnancy. Or yesterday I was convinced there was something wrong because I hadn't felt her move all morning, spoke to my midwife who said this is normal for my stage and sure enough later that afternoon and evening she was up and jiggling around.

Don't fret - you are not alone.. I definitely know how you are feeling!

Same here.

I was always hungry during the first trimester. Stock the pantry with some Up n Go's, they'll come in handy when you wake at 3am starving.

TBH if I were you I would get off the net and off the forums for a few days.

While in the past I have found them to be very reassuring the more I tend to read when I am anxious the more things can make me worry.

With this pregnancy I just keep saying to myself, what ever will be will be and worrying about things will not change anything.  I had a mc in September so I have really had to take a step back from it all iykwim.

Best of luck op original.gif xo

No morning sickness with any of my four pregnancies. Don't worry about it - count yourself lucky!

I never got MS. Well I felt a bit queasy once when I would have been 4w2d . before I knew I was pregnant but that was it. Not nauseous any other time and didn't vomit once.

I did however have extreme fatigue, I think I got that instead of ms. I couldn't last more than a few hours without a nap & slept all evening, had dinner then slept all night.

I didn't get morning sickness until about 10 weeks. From 7 - 10 I noticed a few tummy aches and a little nausea come on (mainly just tired), but from 10 - 15 weeks I have been puking like a mad woman. It's only been this week that it's settled down enough for me to eat anything but noodles. Every woman's body copes differently, my sister didn't get morning sickness at all with her little ones, don't worry - just enjoy not being sick original.gif

I didnt get any morning sickness, and Im currently 29 weeks pregnant.

I only got waves of nausea if i ate certain foods (dairy or chicken, or coffee) starting at around 6 or 7 weeks.
If i didnt eat these, i had no morning sickness at all.

By 11/12 weeks I was back on the dairy, the coffee, everything with no issues at all.

Dont worry, I had the same concerns and I spoke to many mums and many of them had the same experience (little to no morning sickness).

Maybe you're having a boy original.gif
