Worried about lack of MS

I'm currently 8+2 with #1. I had a scan last week which showed a strong heartbeat and everything is as it should. Although my boobs are constantly sore, am tired & have some food aversions, I'm yet to have proper morning sickness. I read everywhere that MS is a sign of a healthy pregnancy and it's slightly freaking me out that I have none.
I've already experienced the heartbreak of a miscarriage so can't help worrying all over again.
Can anyone please let me know if you have dodged MS and have had healthy babies out of it.
Thanks!

I had no morning sickness. I felt a bit rough at about 10 weeks and went off meat but that's it!

I had a precious mmc so completely sympathise with the worrying.

My dsis had twins and no morning sickness.

I've had no ms with either pregs, I think the whole it's a sign of a healthy preg ' line is more so people know it cam be normal so nothing to worry about than to mean no ms. Is a problem ifswim.

I've had no MS, food aversions, tiredness etc. Not really had any of the "unpleasant" symptoms, slightly sore boobs and 3 colds back to back in the first trimester when I never normally catch anything but generally had a very straightforward time so far. I'm 21 weeks and a first timer, all was well at the 20 week scan. Hope you find that this just a lovely, easy pregnancy too! X

Natural to worry especially given you've had a miscarriage. But I know loads of people who had no morning sickness and had healthy babies. Try and consider yourself lucky, it's grim! The scan is very good news.

Thank you so much ladies. I feel much better for airing my concerns. Particularly hearing about your DSis that had twins without ms. My DH was a little annoyed this morning when I told him. He thinks I'm bonkers that I'm wishing to be sick!
Really appreciate your replies & best of luck with your bumps & babies!

9 weeks today. But I could have written your post.
My husband laughs (gently) at my worries over lack of sickness.
I also had a scan at 8(+2) all seemed ok.

19 weeks here, everything fine so far, absolutely no hint of ms or nausea. I'd count your blessings, I spent far too much time worrying about it.
