Anyone not having typical symptoms yet? I have been tired but haven't been sleeping well. I've read you can sleep about 12 hours but I'm lucky to be sleeping 5-6. I know it's earlier but no sickness or sore boobs yet. Not that I want either, but I guess I don't feel pregnant yet, besides the wee stick telling me I am anyway.
Looking forward to speaking to my GP on Wednesday.

No nausea here, no real big obvious symptoms, just slight cramps every now and then, boobs just starting to get soreish, backache comes/goes. Heart feels like its working harder though.

Yeah, I'm still not feeling pregnant. I had really really sore boobs by now last time but I am still breastfeeding so I don't know if that would change things.

I've had a few cramp like twinges and a heavy/pressure feeling but not anymore.

I have been getting the 2am loo run though.

Really happy I haven't got any morning sickness yet!

Seeing my GP tomorrow morning, I feel like I'm waiting for her to confirm it for me or something  huh.gif

Mild cramps, starving hungry, then full but still hungry, need lots of hugs, occasinally a bit queasy and very sensitive to smells...
I exercised yest and felt strong, yay! A little exhausted though and nervous about exercising during preg.
Oh and pee more often. But luckily I normally don't pee much so now it's prob same as a normal person.

I've been a little vaguely nauseous just before meal times. And boobs definitely getting bigger. And peeing soooo often. Keep trying to hold it cause when I give in there's barely anything there! Not as many symptoms as last time yet, but still early days.

Me too! Have woken up a little worried today as feel so normal it is not funny! Only a bit bloated still...oh I hope everything is ok in there! Is it normal to feel nothing really yet? I am just 6 weeks.

I had cramps a few days ago and have sore boobs but that's it. I am not worried though as it was the same last time. I never got any MS and as I had an anterior placenta I felt hardly any kicks. Wouldn't have known I was pregnant until I was six months and the belly filled out!

Dont worry about lack of symptoms .  I know it's hard and I did last time,  but no MS or 'typical symptoms' isn't a bad sign. Everyone handles pregnancy differently.

#11 Growingspud

Posted 06 February 2013 - 04:51 PM

Yep agree with Penguin78 doesn't mean anything. I did query doc today when I was there but she said all good.

Mum is a midwife so I should of just been bugging her! Already have been querying everything. Funny how little I know about pregnancy and the female body, spent too much time on traveling and my business!! Guess that's about to change  ffear.gif

Hi all, is anyone else crampy? I've been getting cramps like dull ache just above my pelvic bone for quite a few days.

Less in the way of nausea/hunger lately. Eating less more frequently definitely helps, and I'm crossing fruit n yoghurt of the list for breakkie, I need something more solid to start the day!

#13 Stronger

Posted 09 February 2013 - 07:53 PM

Yes am finding that the extreme hunger is fading but if I don't eat regularly then I start to feel nauseous!

Am feeling more tired too. Other than that not much else though.

#14 dorkalicious

Posted 09 February 2013 - 07:56 PM

Super tired, huge achey boobs, mostly lost my appetite but if I don't eat every 2 hours-ish I get nauseous....

It was around the 7 week mark last time that the symptoms hit me hard and fast and I became a vomit machine.... waiting anxiously hoping that doesn't happen this time!

#15 Chaton

Posted 09 February 2013 - 11:29 PM

Last time I got lots fo twingy, crampy feelings.  Not so much this time but perhaps because everything is pre-stretched?  blush.gif

My boobs are huge, heavy and super sore.  I'm going to have to move to sports tops or maternity bras because the thinner strap bras I usually wear are leaving angry sore red marks on my shoulders and I'm constantly adjusting them.

I've got the queasies getting worse by the day and I discovered tonight the bleeding gums are back in a big way.

Isn't this gig glamourous?

Anyone have itchy skin? I have got a heat like rash which I never get and it's driving me crazy especially at night.

#18 MrsRadiant

Posted 10 February 2013 - 09:15 PM

Yes I have itchy skin on & off!
6 weeks today and the nausea has kicked in, first whole day with it, tonight was the worst at 7pm.
No sore boobs, on/off cramps, sorest lower backache down to bottom!

I'm around 5 weeks now so still very early... I am so gassy and bloated!! I have never had bloating in my life before so it's very weird. Also burping a lot (so embarrassing!) and having trouble sleeping. And exhausted all the time.... ssleep.gif

#20 Growingspud

Posted 11 February 2013 - 05:42 AM

I'm having trouble sleeping too. Was a stomach sleeper and now can't due to sore boobs. Just having trouble getting comfortable. It's annoying DH as I keep waking him.

#21 Penguin78

Posted 11 February 2013 - 06:02 AM

My boobs are hard as rocks! And soreness coming and going. Weird dreams have started and I am another one with wind problems!!! So embarrassing at a family party yesterday I had to sneak off to the loo to let one rip!  laughing2.gif

#22 Growingspud

Posted 11 February 2013 - 07:41 AM

Oh I've been having weird dreams too! I didn't realise it had anything to do with being pregas. Classic

Also have wind. It seems to have settled a bit in the last week but the first couple was terrible

#23 mrslb

Posted 11 February 2013 - 07:46 AM

Good to know that I'm not the only one with trouble sleeping and vivid dreams - DH was struggling last week with me disturbing his sleep - he's going to be in for a rude shock when the little one arrives!

I hear you on the wind! If you keep them all in you ended up even more bloated and sore, but its not really acceptable to let them all rip.
What to do!.
