I haven't really had any morning sickness and today I am 7 week and 7 days.

I read somewhere that its not a good sign if you haven't had anything by 8 weeks and I have really only had waves of ravenous hunger and a vague, "I don't really want to eat anything because the thought is unpleasant" kind of feeling - but nothing I would really deem 'nausea'.

I kind of feel that if I wasn't hyper aware of my body right now I wouldn't notice anything at all? Did this happen to anyone else?

This is the first time I've made it this far and I don't really know what to expect or what's abnormal... and I can't help but feel nervous.

Words of wisdom and reassurance would be appreciated :)

5 babies and never had any morning sickness. All were perfectly fine.  Have you had a scan?
So hard not to worry, all the bets for the next 7 months!

I've had 3 pregnancies and no morning sickness so I wouldn't worry too much about that

I never had morning sickness, never felt tired or extremely hungry. No food aversions or cravings. Two healthy pregnancies.

First baby, no morning sickness, just a weird suppressed appetite. Would get a third through my usual serve and be unable to eat another bite!
This pregnancy, lots of nausea, decent amount of vomiting.
Pregnancy one was vastly more enjoyable!
So don’t stress, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything.

Thanks everyone!

I think that I just over read things and work myself up!

I never really started feeling slightly unwell until after 8wks and even then it was just an annoying general low level nausea.

2 boys not even a hint of morning sickness. 37 weeks pregnant now (with a girl unsure if that makes a difference) and I vomited daily for the first 20 weeks. Now it's just randomly when I'm a bit tired. Or eating. Or not eating. Or just doing something or nothing :)

Point is, all pregnancies are different and it's extremely common to have zero morning sickness.

All the best :)

I never got morning sickness. I usd to wish for it thinking it would be reassuring that thr pregnancy was OK.

Ravenous hunger is also a good sign!

I had no morning sickness really. Felt a bit yuck with number 2 and 3 but nothing more than a fleeting moment of "ew feel icky"

Also, my friend had no morning sickness or any signs of pregnancy and got the shock of her life when she found out she was 13 weeks pregnant!
She apologised to me profusely (as I get extreme morning sickness lol).

I had this issue, and even went to the Dr and asked for a blood test. My doctor said in her experience, that not having sickness or symptoms wasn't a very good sign, so I resigned myself to it not working out. I am now 16 weeks with HG since 8 weeks. EXTREMELY sick after zero symptoms the first month.
There's no rhyme or reason to it, and every pregnancy is different. I'm all for requesting blood tests to reassure yourself if you think that would help!

Twins and not one sign on morning sickness here. Try not to worry. Weird dreams and hunger where my main early symptoms. It’s different for everyone

I am worried that a doctor would say this to someone who is pregnant

As I said before I had no morning sickness nor did I show, my son was still fine - no one outside who i told ever knew I was pregnant.

My friends sister when I was a teenager was 6 months pregnant before she knew - she have about a period every six months so that is why she never knew.

surely all pregnancies are different?

First pregnancy I had one morning of random vomiting and that was the whole extent of my morning sickness.

Second pregnancy - nil, but I would get carsick often if I was the passenger.

Third pregnancy - twins - again no morning sickness but strong smells would have me gagging

How do your boobs feel?  I rarely had any morning sickness - my "hmm, that indicates" sign for me was super-sensitive nipples in both pregnancies.

Yep, I didn't really have morning sickness either, just was very tired and craved steak and garlic! I did gag on toothbrushing later in my pregnancy, so I used a child's toothbrush for a while!

Not much morning sickness here either for both pregnancies. Made my mum worry more than me. Both babies were fine.

Hey there.

Congrats on your pregnancy. Just to offer a different perspective and to validate how different it is for everyone. I am currently pregnant for the third time, I have a nearly 8 year old son and I had a missed miscarriage earlier this year. With my son my morning sickness didn't start until about 7-8 weeks,then it was game on. Vomiting and nausea for weeks and weeks.

With my miscarriage I was even worse. The worst nausea, huge food aversions, mild vomiting, bloating, constipation. I didn't realise I had miscarried until I was 10.3 weeks at a scan and baby had stopped growing at 6.3weeks. That's a whole month and I was none the wiser as I was always of the opinion that sickness means everything is going fine.

I know that it's hard not to worry. I've been pregnant for all of 5 mins (4 weeks 1 day today :p and I'm all panicking that I have no symtpoms. Symptoms or lack of don't necessarily mean anything.

Just try and enjoy this time. 😀 Best of luck hun XoXoX

I am on pregnancy number 4, and number 4 of no sickness whatsoever (and I have had both sexes). Like someone else said, I got the sore boobs, but not so much this time around which has me freaking out (as I miscarried the third pregnancy at 17 weeks). I think there always seems to be so much more said about people getting morning sickness than there is about the people that don’t, so then you automatically assume that somethings wrong and like you should be sick! Congratulations and good luck PsySquirrel!

This reminded me - tender boobs was one thing that prompted me to do a test for my last pregnancy.

That and being super tired - like sleep 10 hours a night and then still need a nap once I got the kids to school
