Early pregnancy symptoms (or lack of) - paranoia

Hi all.

Have recently discovered I appear to be pg with dc2 and I'm really struggling with paranoia already... So I think I am spot on 5 weeks today but am really suffering from a lack of symptoms. Yeah my boobs are a tincy bit sensitive and am getting the odd few vaguely crampy like feelings in my pelvis like maybe things are stretching, but that is about it. I'm finding it hard to remember about my 1st pregnancy to compare... I was never badly sick, had a weird 'evening sickness' for a few weeks I remember and I have a feeling it didn't start til a few weeks further in but it just feels really weird not to really be feeling anything major right now yet according to the 3 tests I've done that I'm apparently pg!
Just to worry myself more I've read a few threads about mmc's and a lack of symptoms seems to be a common theme.
How can I stop this paranoia!! Has anyone else felt the same?! Can't believe I'm being so stressy and this is 2nd time round!

Couldn't read and not post. I had a completely symptomless pregnancy with my DS1; no sickness, no nausea, nothing. I felt a little more tired than usually for a few days but that was it.

DS1 turned 2 in August and I had a completely great and easy pregnancy.

It can happen like that, I promise. Stay positive and try not to stress too much. x

I've had absolutely no symptoms apart from a heightened sense of smell and some tiredness, even now at nearly 27 weeks it's just tiredness and a bit of back pain. Congrats on your pregnancy :-)

Thanks for replies.
Am going to go to doctors later today...not sure they will be able to say anything. Just a waiting game I guess, but I hate waiting!!!!

Good luck, just to say I felt completely normal until at least 7 weeks and even then only a little bit sick. This is despite feeling very ill from about 5 weeks with dc1. Now 21 weeks and all well-other than feeling fat I still don't really have any symptoms.

With both my pregnancies I didn't have a single symptom until 7 weeks, I thought that was fairly normal?

Careful what you wish for... I was waiting and hoping for symptoms to appear to confirm I was pregnant. Feel like poo now. Threw up on the landing carpet this morning as couldn't get to the loo on time. Loverly

Yes, I know I have had that thought about being careful what I wish for, but even that thought seems 'risky' to some extent.

Is it a good sign that a clearblue digital said pregnant 2-3 last week and I have just done another one and it says pregnant 3+ (or would it still say that even if there was a problem?

No that will mean that your hcg levels are increasing which is definitely good.

I was the same as you when I was 4 weeks pregnant. I felt absolutely fine and was worried about it. I'm now nearly 6 weeks and the past 3 days I've felt sick all day. Was sent home from work yesterday for throwing up! Now I'm wishing I felt fine again!
