Hi ladies, got some excellent advice from mumsnetters first time around so thought i'd join again this time. Am 34 and approx 10 weeks with #2. How common is it to have very few, if any symptoms at all? I know all pregnancies are different but am sure I felt much more pregnant with dc1. Apart from tender boobs and some tiredness (which could be cos I work in retail and xmas is mental) I just don't feel anything. Am I right to be concerned? Or am I just being a bit silly and over anxious.
hello - some people just dont get any symptoms - i didnt really have any symptoms apart from a missed period with either of myfirst two, and only mild nausea and and odd taste this time around. and by around the 10 wk mark the placenta takes over the job that the hormones were doing and so your symptoms may lessen ven further. it is probably nothing to worry about, though i know thats easier said than done!!!
Symptoms can come and go and some people get more or less (or nothing!!) and even the same woman in different pregnancies will get differing experiences
Unless you've had pain or bleeding there's every likelihood that things are doing fine.
Have you spoken to your MW about your concerns? maybe she can reassure you it won't be long till your scan now so try to not fret too much (although easier said than done I know - my boobs didn't hurt this morning (despite giving it gangnam style at a party last night so I was poking them till I could feel the pain again!)
I had a symptomless second pregnancy (other than the lack of periods). I was absolutely convinced that there was something wrong, not helped by the fact that I didn't get my 12 week scan until 17 weeks . I probably wouldn't have worried nearly as much if I hadn't had horrible morning sickness for 6 months with my first.
The pregnancy in question is now running around shrieking madly with no trousers on.
I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that morning sickness tends to be worse with girls so maybe you can do some old wives tale gender prediction.
Solero I am in the same boat, I have no symptoms what so ever, I am 11+2 & haven't had anything other than the odd sore nipple & feeling tired, I didn't find out I was PG until 8 weeks & that was because I couldn't remember the last time I'd had my period (completely unplanned pregnancy mixed with irregular periods, if any at all some months & being on pill), I haven't even felt nauseous! Some people think this is a good thing, personally until last week when I had what the MW thought would have been my 12 week scan, I had completely convinced myself I wasn't PG &/or lost my baby because of lack of symptoms, it also made me google like crazy & jump to all kinds of conclusions. I actually wished for symptoms to make sure I wasn't going insane, but got to see a very real baby in my tummy last week & now feel more assured have also mentioned this to my MW who said that some women have no symptoms what so ever & have completely normal pregnancies. Your not alone on the no symptom front, congratulations by the way & I hope all is well for you on the 16th!
Please don't worry! I had nothing, NADDA, minus a missed period for I'd say the first 30 weeks. So much so I insisted that DH pay for a scan at 9 weeks as I failed to believe how this could be a viable pregnancy. He's now 19 months, snoring his nut off upstairs and utterly fabulous.
Oh but the backache that came later....the clicky hips, the insomnia, the funny feeling fanjo....
I posted the same two weeks ago and all was fine when it came to the scan. try not to google too much or you'll drive yourself nutty and trust God. I think tiredness is a good sign if it's out of character
I had no symptoms other than a teeny bit of tiredness. No sore boobs, no nausea or sickness, nothing. It can be a bit worrying because until you start to show / feel baby move there is nothing to indicate that you are actually up-duffed, but you still are!
I'm now 27 weeks and everything is fine. Was sick this morning for an unrelated reason, and it reminded me to be thankful that I have got away lightly!!
