I am 5 weeks pregnant and have no symptoms except some mild cramping at night when I go to bed. I feel fine otherwise. I have one DD and have 3 previous miscarriages so I am terrified!

I am so scared of having a missed miscarriage like last time and needing a D&C. I almost wish I had morning sickness or something! I did a FRER test yesterday and the line came up immediately and was a lot darker than the control line and darker than the tests I did last week but I don't think that means much in the scheme of things.

Could you please share your stories of symptomless pregnancies to make me feel better? Thank you!

No symptoms here - in the first tri I was just tired. That's it. DD is now 8 weeks old and noisily slurping on a bottle on my lap. Congratulations and good luck!

My symptoms kick in about 7 weeks.
Good luck for a sticky little one.

I did have extreme fatigue from about week 6. Apart from that no morning sickness, no food aversions until almost 2nd trimester. No metallic taste in mouth. No real change in the amount of times I had to pee until final month of pregnancy.

The lack of MS scared me too - everything always seems to say that MS means a healthy baby, but I believe it is something like 20-30% of pregnancies are free from MS so you might just be lucky original.gif

Hi there, I am about 6 weeks, and no symptoms yet, except for the same bedtime crampiness you describe.

I'm sure this is fine!

I have my fingers crossed that I may be lucky and escape morning sickness altogether, although this may be wishful thinking.

My only symptom throughout my entire pregnancy was extreme tiredness, bordering on exhaustion at times. DS is now having a nap in his room original.gif

Good luck, I hope this little one sticks for you

Hi Op I didn't have any real symptoms at all , I was very tired and peed a lot the first Tri but that was it. So it does happen.

OP, not everyone gets morning sickness. I have had two pregnancies and did not experience morning sickness once! In fact I never even felt pregnant until I started showing!

I had three of those. #3 was symptomless well into the second trimester.

They are now very loud and noisy children ...

No symptoms but mild cramping. Honestly wouldnt have known I was pregnant.

The gorgeous two year old is sitting on my lap right now

You're only 5 weeks.....apart from the fact that it is perfectly normal to have a pregnancy with no MS, lots of people have no symptoms until 6 weeks +.

My really noticeable symptoms kicked in from about 6 weeks.  Good luck, hope this is your sticky bubby!!

My first real pregnancy symptoms with my first daughter were:

Lack of period
Growing a belly
Baby kicks

That was it. I'm not kidding! I worried soooo much but there was nothing to worry about.

Up until about 11 weeks all I really had to show for pregnancy was major tiredness and some mild cramping. Never had any morning sickness, a little queasy once or twice but nothing a bit of fresh air didn't fix. It was after this time I started getting other symptoms.
Nothing to worry about, hope this one sticks for you!!!  original.gif

Hi

My first ended in MC and I hugged the toilet bowl for the seven weeks straight. This time around I have had nothing except extreme tiredness and I am 11 weeks. So as long as the line keeps appearing just enjoy it.

Nothing with my 2nd, mild with 1 and 4 , and rotten with 3 lol

I wouldn't get too excited about lack of symptoms at 5 weeks.  Morning sickness often starts suddenly around 6 weeks so you are not out of the woods yet.
Regardless of symptoms, I wish you a smooth pregnancy.

No symptoms for me either and I didn't really start to show an actual bump until around 24 weeks, just looked like I had a spare tyre for a while! So for the first trimester I clung onto the fact that I hadn't had a period...

#21 Electric_Blue

Posted 21 January 2013 - 02:02 PM

I didn't really have many symptoms either...felt slightly seedy around 8 weeks but otherwise I felt pretty normal. Good Luck!

#22 Squeekums Da Feral

Posted 21 January 2013 - 02:06 PM

I had no symptoms at all to the point I only found out at 27 weeks that I was pregnant with DD when I started to show a little

#23 muggins_00

Posted 21 January 2013 - 03:37 PM

I'm 10 weeks pregnant with twins and all I've had so far is mild cramping, fatigue, a little more heartburn than usual and some food aversions. My last 3 pregnancies I had terrible morning sickness all the way through so this one has been a little bit disconcerting!

#24 mummanazz

Posted 21 January 2013 - 03:48 PM

No symptoms here either.

I was a bit more tired than usual maybe, but that was really it.

I was also worried that perhaps there was not actually a baby in there at all because I felt so normal!

But now at 27 weeks with a bubba who likes to kick me in the pelvis all the time, I know that not to be the case smile1.gif

Best of luck to you for a healthy pregnancy!

Edited because I stuffed up my smiley face!

No symptoms here either, except fatigue.  I spotted and had light cramping from 6 weeks - 10 weeks but no morning sickness.  I did have saw boobs, which would come and go and drive me crazy because whenever they stopped hurting I was convinced I was no longer pregnant.  

Sorry you're stressing OP - wishing you a sticky bub this time around  bbighug.gif
