Hi again,

I'm sorry to be a pain but I'm feeling quite anxious. This is my third pregnancy (one DS & one very early misscarriage last month) but I have no symptoms (& I had heaps with my son & none with the misscarriage).

I am not tired. My boobs aren't sore. I'm not sick. I don't feel in the slightest bit different.

I'm wondering if others who had strong pregnancy symptoms in their last pregnancy then had none (not even boobs or tiredness!) in their next?

I'm 5 weeks & will have a scan at 6 1/2 (for dating as we had the misscarriage last month).

Thanks & sorry for being a worry wart!!

Every pregnancy is different. With DD I knew I was pregnant pretty much instantly (nose bleeds etc). With DS I was SO sure I WASN'T pregnant, that I had applied for a new job, was away at training, and DRANK...quite a bit.

Please try not to stress xo

How many weeks are you? You will find symptoms if any may not appear until 6-8 weeks into pregnancy. It sounds like early days to me.
Try not to worry as Pp said every pregnancy is different. I had sore boobs but they stopped hurting at 8 weeks. I was so worried but ended up with. a 13 month old!

I had strong pregnancy symptoms with my DS and have had barely any symptoms with this one. Totally different pregnancy, so far all is going well.

I'm 5 weeks. I understand the sickness might not kick in yet but no sore boobs, no tiredness, no hunger? It just doesn't seem right sad.gif

I had two very different pregnancies. With my DD I had a fair few symptoms all throughout. With DS nothing at all, I was always worried. DS is now 2 & a lovely boy & sound asleep. DD who aw always a busy bee in utero is 3 & bouncing of the walls wide awake.

Maybe you've just got a quiet one, I hope it all goes well for you. I understand it must be stressful since you've miscarried.

Hey honey try not to stress.
With my current pregnancy I never had sickness, or sore boobs, or hungry or tiredness or even an increase need to pee. In fact I felt awesome!!! . . . .thought almost half way through I am now tied lol
I was worried like you casue I'd lost 2 baby's in the 12 months of trying before finally having this sticky one. . .  . Sometimes you just get lucky and miss all the horrible symptoms original.gif good luck sweets xx

Hi Tillytake2

This is my first pregnancy so I don't have anything to compare it to, but from everything I have read symptoms can differ so widely from one woman to the next!! As long as you're not bleeding I would assume all is well & probably before you know it you'll be feeling either very sick or tired or both! Hopefully not for your sake.  It's natural to worry & over analyse these things though, I definitely know that feeling... Sending big hugs your way xxx

For DS I had sore boobs even before I had a positive result from POAS.

My next pregnancy (DD) no sore boobs. I panicked thought something was wrong, nope, just a totally different pregnancy.

Good Luck OP

I'm on my third viable pregnancy and have had three different experiences.

My second son's pregnancy was like you describe. Absolutely no symptoms at all. I realise it causes some worry as it did also for me, but being in my 30th week of a miserable pregnancy this time (hot, tired, anaemic, 2 other kids to run after on school holidays), it makes me dream of the bliss and comfort of my second.

I hope all works out just fine for you - as awful as early pregnancy loss is, what will be, will be. xx

I've had 3 pregnancies with horrid horrid morning sickness. This time I barely have any, it really is disconcerting but as of last Wednesday there are 2 healthy babies in there.

I'm currently 7 weeks & was the same as you at 5 weeks.  Only this week I've started to get some slight nausea when I'm hungry.  Hcg levels are good & doubling & I have scan on Monday, so fingers crossed.  With my dd, I was vomiting from before four weeks, had every symptom in the book, but still worried if they eased for a day or few hours even! So far, this is a very different pregnancy, but no less worrying!

I had more symptoms with my last pregnancy and had a miscarriage.

Hardly any symptoms this time and no miscarriage yet.

I've had two successful preganancies - both have been completely symptomless - no morning sickness, tiredness etc

I think I read about 1/3 of pregnancies have no morning sickness.  We all just keep very, very quiet about it  wink.gif

With DD1 and 2 I had nothing until about 6 weeks. I thought I was fine then right on 6 weeks it started. Third baby it started around 5.5 weeks approx.
I have lost 3 and I can say the symptoms were always the same  - try not to worry as the worry doesn't change the outcome. I know easier said than done!!
I wasn't able to tell a miscarriage based on symptoms at this early point.
