I'm not usually a nervous person but am worried. I am pregnant for the first time, and, despite two small bouts of nausea and slightly tender breasts/ needing to pee more often, I have no major symptoms.
I keep reading that morning sickness is a healthy sign and consequently am worrying. Has anyone else not really experienced any sickness at this stage?
I may of course be worrying too early and be sick as a dog soon. Just after some reassurance really :-/
Other than enhanced smell and heavy feeling breasts at night, i had no symptoms until at least 8-9 weeks (and even then it was only occasional morning sickness) - i honestly don't think you need to worry, enjoy NOT feeling sick as it could suddenly change! :-)
Thanks everyone. I hate the fact that we've chosen not to tell anyone because I feel so alone with all of these worries.
My partner is brilliant and supportive, but I feel like I am almost irrational about it all. I guess every pregnancy is different, but for someone like me (a control freak) its hard to sit back and not know what is going on. I kinda wish I had an earlier scan, but I don't even have my booking appointment until next week!
I'm in a somewhat similar situation FirstTimer. Using LMP as a conception date, I'm 5+2, and I've only experienced tender boobs and a hint of fatigue. And I don't have a booking appt for another 4weeks! While I don't want to wish morning sickness on myself, I wouldn't mind a hint of it so I know things are progressing.
" I hate the fact that we've chosen not to tell anyone because I feel so alone with all of these worries."
This is also very normal. Many people (most? Certainly all but 1 of my RL friends) don't like to tell people until after the 1st scan, about 10-12 weeks. Some for weeks after that! It's been that way for centuries for precisely the reasons you say- it's an anxious and uncertain time, it adds pressure and worry.
So don't worry about not telling: it's your call.
That stupid clearblue advert where she's telling people as soon as she's peed on a stick and those FB "my baby week by week from week 4" put undue pressure on to tell, IMHO.
Practically nobody I know got MS. It depends on the woman and a lack of symptoms really doesn't have anything to do with the health of the embryo. Don't worry about it - but if you can't help it, call the NHS who will tell you the same thing.
