Who didn't have sickness....

I'm feeling anxious because I'm not experiencing morning sickness.

Everything I read and hear states that morning sickness is a positive sign as it shows that the pregnancy is progressing well and that women who suffer morning sickness are less likely to miscarry.

Every day I wake up and part of me is wishing I'd be sick. I have had a few days of my tummy feeling dodgy but that's where it ends.

Am I being silly???

Have had two healthy pregnancies and no sickness either time . Did get some nausea but that's it.
Everyone is different - am sure those with severe morning sickness would be very jealous of those who bypass it.
Try not too worry and enjoy your pregnancy.

I was never sick. Not once
I didn't even feel very sick with 2 of mine, although I did go off coffee and often felt slightly nauseous around tea time

If you're worried speak to your midwife. I'm sure there are lots of non-sick pregnancies grin
Congrats

I'm 28 weeks pregnant with DC3 and I haven't been sick once throughout the three pregnancies. 2/hopefullfy soon to be 3 healthy children.

I can't imagine how being sick is an indication of a pregnancy going well. I think it's one of those things that people say to make you feel better....like it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day, or if a bird poos on you!

Stop worrying and enjoy your pregnancy x

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 11:49:11

It absolutely p*ssed it down on my Wedding Day!!!!!!! grin

roofio87 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:30:02

im another one who hasn't had any sickness. im 31 wks now with a v healthy pg!!

KatoPotato Tue 06-Aug-13 12:30:52

I was never sick, and had no symptoms, hence why I never found out until I was 23 weeks!

Never sick with 2 healthy pregnancies (now 3 and 6)!

No sickness here either

whyno Tue 06-Aug-13 12:45:44

Nope, never sick wi either of mine.

barebranches Tue 06-Aug-13 12:47:16

no sickness and im 13 weeks now. did feel the same as you at first bit more relaxed now... just!

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 12:49:06

Oh wow - I'm genuinely surprised!! I feel much more reassured now.

I have got my first midwife appointment this afternoon and about 20 minutes ago I actually took another pregnancy test just to make sure I was. I needed to know that in the absence of morning sickness I hadn't imagined it all. Stupid, I know blush

PerchedOnMyPeddleStool Tue 06-Aug-13 12:59:22

No sickness at all and I have twins too which supposedly increases sickness!

Everyone differs, you just hear more about the bad/difficult stuff because there's no point in saying I feel great or I'm not sick.

I was tired though, soooooooooo tired

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 13:09:42

Can I ask what it was like when you went for your scan and were told you were having twins??

I love hearing people's stories about that smile

MotorcycleMama Tue 06-Aug-13 13:14:22

Hi writer can I just say I sympathise with your anxiety entirely. I am 8 weeks and 2 days and have had occasional, mild, fleeting nausea, nothing you would really notice. All that you read suggests this puts you at higher risk of miscarriage, and every (well meaning, I know) person asks you if you feel sick. It makes you feel defective if you aren't.
Have you had a scan yet? I had one at 7+2 and was convinced it would be bad news due to my total lack of symptoms, but it was there with a strong heartbeat, and measuring just right.
Good luck with your m/w appt - I hope you get all the reassurance you need. Mine is tomorrow!

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 13:23:34

Thanks motorcycle

Me and hubby are having a scan next week when I will be 7+4. We aren't doing it because we are particularly worried about the pregnancy but because we are just so excited!!!!! grin

It will definitely help reassure me though!!!!

PatriciaHolm Tue 06-Aug-13 13:27:46

I had one instance throughout 2 pregnancies, and I think that was precipitated by being on a hot, packed bus! Even then I wasn't sick, just nauseous.

Good luck for the scan!

LouiseD29 Tue 06-Aug-13 13:36:23

I haven't had any sickness either. Felt slightly queasy two or three times in the early days, but that was it! Am now 39+3 and all has gone pretty smoothly.

floppops Tue 06-Aug-13 15:01:44

I was never sick with my DD-now 3. And am 8 weeks now with number 2 and no sickness again. No nausea either..tired and hungry though!
I thought no morning sickness at all was quite rare but maybe not?

TeaAndANatter Tue 06-Aug-13 15:04:03

Never sick or nauseous with either of the healthy pregs. Good luck.

I had a tiny bit of nausea early on which was more related to the rotten chest infection I had! Never had any sickness at all and I'm 27 weeks today

Reiltin Tue 06-Aug-13 15:20:24

Nope, no morning sickness. Just be grateful!

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 16:10:09

Thanks everyone - I feel much better smile

I have just got back from my Booking In appointment and the midwife also told me that although a lot of women report feeling nauseous, actual vomiting isn't as common as what people think smile

lozza22 Tue 06-Aug-13 18:20:28

same as above, none at all with either pregnancy and now on dc3 and touch wood still none! enjoy :-)

I didn't have any sickness at all with dd1 or dd2, and only a little with dd 3 & dd4. Expecting dd5 and i experienced quite a lot of nausea in the early days but was only actually sick a few times.
Be glad you don't have it, not having it doesn't mean to say its bad news.

itsliz Tue 06-Aug-13 18:33:43

I wasn't sick either, not once! Feeling very tired and dizzy now that I'm into my second trimester though, so maybe that's my body's way of evening things out...!

I am 17 weeks pregnant and have had zero morning sickness smile heard a strong heartbeat today at my midwife appointment too! In fact everything could not be going better so far. My mum didn't have it either and had very successful pregnancies. Do not worry, most will get it but still lots of woman don't.

With this pregnancy I barely had any morning sickness. I totally didn't felt pregnant until my belly started to grow.

I think I only have been sick twice in those first 3 months. If I didn't know that I was pregnant I would have thought I was going ill. I totally wouldn't have recognized it as morning sickness.

Those 2 times were both the same.
In the morning I didn't felt to well. Went with my head above the loo and that's it.

I'm now 33 weeks pregnant. This little one is very active in my belly and no health problems what so ever.

It's my 4th pregnancy and I did regular pregnancy tests in those first 3 months. Because I totally didn't feel pregnant. I was very scared that I had lost the baby and that's why I didn't felt pregnant.

I also went to the doctor and he did a blood test. Everything was ok with me and I was and still am pregnant.

syl1985 Tue 06-Aug-13 18:45:07

Try to enjoy not feeling ill. If things do go wrong there won't be anything you can do to stop it from going wrong.

I so know the worries I had.
So I totally understand how you feel. But being worried is not doing you nor your baby any good.

Do the things that you need to do. Stay healthy, go to your health appointments, have a healthy diet.

You can't do more then that.

And be careful what you wish for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Things can still come. There're even mothers who had trouble with morning sickness later in their pregnancies.

fertilityFTW Tue 06-Aug-13 18:45:44

Looking at the very healthy, giggly result of an uncomplicated pregnancy - not a jot of nausea or sickness. Or any other symptoms for ages - pretty much till the 3rd trimester (which was miserable with SPD, swollen feet, sleepless nights etc. etc. - wait for it ;) )
And congrats!

blueshoes Tue 06-Aug-13 18:59:38

I have the easiest symptomless pregnancies in the world. No sickness, no nausea. The only evidence is absence of period and growing bump.

blondebaby111 Tue 06-Aug-13 19:19:15

I didn't have any sickness either, I felt it sometimes but as soon as I had a biscuit or something light to eat I was fine. I think the worst I felt was the tiredness and bloating early on xx

VestandKnickers Tue 06-Aug-13 19:20:56

I've had two pregnancies - one singleton and one twins. No a day of sickness with either.

ZingWidge Tue 06-Aug-13 19:34:07

<waves to writer>

hi lovely, worry not, I know some people who had perfect babies and not a moment of sickness.

also some with head in the loo, vomiting for Queen and country for weeks only to suffer a MC (including me)sad

enjoy sick free days! (envy)

when is your 12 weeks scan?

memphis83 Tue 06-Aug-13 19:36:16

I didn't feel sick at all. The only reason I found out I was pg was because my boobs were inflating by the day.

Writerwannabe83 Tue 06-Aug-13 19:37:54

My 12 week scan is on the 16th September!!!! Ages away!!!

However, I'm having a Private Scan next Wednesday because me and hubby are too excited to wait!!!! grin

GiveMeVegemite Wed 07-Aug-13 07:30:07

I haven't had any sickness with either of my pregnancies. Count yourself lucky, I do! smile

Smitten1981 Wed 07-Aug-13 10:44:57

I felt really sick for about a month from about 6-10 weeks, but I'm 29 weeks now and no puke yet (touch wood) although the nausea has returned, boo to nausea.
