I am 6 weeks pregnant and feel like i dont have enough symptoms. I have diarrhea is that a symptom? And headaches and cramps in my tummy is that bad? Sorry first pregnancy..

Don't worry. I was so symptomless I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 17 weeks. I had irregular periods anyway, so thought nothing of it!

I only tested because I'd missed a period, which is not an unusual thing but I always check- my jaw hit the floor when it came back BFP. Didn't have a single symptom until around 20 weeks, except for a marked preference for the smell of petrol confused

Yeah, don't worry. I didn't have any symptoms either. Pretty much all the way through this pregnancy (now 40 weeks + 6). I began to count myself very lucky after hearing about other women having terrible sickness/pelvic pains/headaches/swellings etc.

I didn't really feel the baby move properly until about 24 weeks or so, and didn't really start showing until around 28 weeks either.

Don't panic. Just remember - All women are different. There's no 'normal' with this stuff.

Good luck!

Hi Autumn6553 - I was just about to write the exact same post!

I'm on #2 and in the very early stages (think about 4 weeks) and have no symptoms either! (apart from falling asleep by 8pm ... but that's not that unusual for me blush)

I remember the first time I felt sick ALL the time, my boobs felt like they were on fire, I totally went off booze (whereas I could murder a glass of wine) ... but I'm now wondering if this all kicked in around week 8 and I'm just in denial? (I thought #2 would mentally be a breeze but I'm just as worried as the first time!)

I've also lost weight which is bizarre as I've increased my carbs and usaully put weight on at the drop of a hat! I am small, but I work hard at staying slim. The weight I've dropped to now is my 'bikini' weight - although I don't look as slim as I usually do - it's just weird!

So - what I'm trying to say is, don't worry as I feel the same ... and I bet others will come on here and say wait until week 8 ... and then we'll have our heads in buckets grin and wish we'd enjoyed this bit smile

i'm the same as you (i'm 6 weeks). Aside from being asleep by 9.30 and my boobs are a bit tingly and when I wake up I get small cramps. Thankyou for asking the question as I was just going to ask it too.

I am have been similarly worried/confused with this pg (now 7 weeks) because my boobs don't hurt at all, whereas the last pregnancy that symptom started straight away. However I am now feeling sicker and more drained by the day. My last pg was a MMC so I'm going with the advice that every pg has different symptoms, and that symptoms don't really predict whether things will turn out well or not. There's not really any point second guessing, we just have to grin and bear it whatever symptoms do or don't come our way.

I was symptomless too with both my pregnancies except feeling tired the first trimester. I had other complications caused by pregnancy, but no sickness, achey boobs, cramps worse than period cramps or real cravings.

I've had hardly any symptoms. I'll be 10wks on Saturday & I've had 2 scans already the last being 2wks ago because of spotting, they saw a heartbeat but i had blood next to my sac. I've had the odd spotting since & I know its probably just to do with the blood in the sac but cant help worrying, particularly as the only real symptom I had was my breasts feeling achy & heavy but in the last 2 days that's stopped & I'm trying not to freak out.

I feel a bit symptomless too, have been tired but it's wearing off, sore tummy and achy boobs at the end of the day, but seems fairly mild. I have felt mildly queasy when I have delayed any meals a bit, but as long as I eat regularly I feel fine - I really want to get my 12 week scan over and done with as it's such a worry (don't whatever you do google pregnancy no symptoms as it is all about miscarriage).

Thank you all so much and I'm sorry to say I've already googled it, it was awful! I hope some symptoms will kick in so I will really feel pregnant lol thank you so much tho!!(:
