6 weeks and very few symptoms

Hi, I am hoping to hear other people's experiences/advice please.

I am 6 weeks pregnant and so far have very few symptoms. I get the odd bout of tiredness but no nausea etc.

Last time I was pregnant (with DS1) I had really strong nausea and was sick practically every day of the pregnancy. I can't remember when the sickness started but feel sure I would have symptoms by now.

I am nervous as before DS1, I had two miscarriages, one was a missed miscarriage where my symptoms died off but had no bleeding so I am nervous again this time round.

Has anyone experience similar and how did it turn out? Thanks flowers

Honestly the first trimester differers SO much from woman to woman that there is nothing anyone can class as normal or standard!

I didn't have any symptoms until almost 7 weeks and even mentioned to the midwife I was worried because I didn't "feel pregnant". She laughed and told me to give it a couple weeks and she was right! Lots of sickness and tiredness!

That being said, I know women who have had no sickness and no real symptoms in the first trimester at all to note and they've had a "standard pregnancy".

If you're worried there's nothing stopping you speaking to your midwife for reassurance but I wouldn't worry too much for the time being. As long as there's no intense tummy cramps or bleeding the chances are on your side that LO is absolutely fine and just deciding to give mom and easy time! smile

Be careful what you wish for!! I had no symptoms apart from sore boobs till 7.5 weeks and then they hit! I'm now 23 weeks and still being sick and having nausea.

Check with your midwife at your booking in appointment but I'm sure it will be ok. You may just be one of the lucky ones.

Thanks both for the reassurance! I think it's because it feels so different from my first.

I haven't been referred to my midwife yet as have to go through docs and couldn't get an appointment until next Monday. Fingers crossed by then I'm sick as a dog winkgrin

No period and the chubby 12 month old now sleeping in her cot were the only symptoms I ever got! Symptoms really do mean nothing; I agonised over it for weeks and weeks, but it made no difference.

Apart from making pg friends who were suffering badly hate me, of course.

Congratulations and best of luck smile
