Is this normal?

I'm just over 5 weeks pregnant and I hardly have any symptoms at all. I have a sore, achy back, tiredness, the odd headache and sore boobs. I can remember feeling like utter crap at this stage with DS, and I thought it would be the same this time. I know I should be glad that I can still stomach food and generally feel well in myself, but I can't help but also feel a bit worried too. I do get the odd wave of nausea but it's nothing I can't handle and it's gone rather quickly.
I'm hoping I'm just being silly and just need some reassurance. Thank you.

You might just feel rubbish later, with ds i didnt have any symptoms until 10 weeks, with this one 5 weeks and i felt dreadful!

I was fine except insomnia and occasional queasiness, until I got big and heavy. It's ok not to feel rough.

Symptoms such as morning sickness are present in around 50% of people at 6 weeks, 70% at 7 weeks and 80ish at 8 weeks. So yes, very normal!

Oh thank god. I'll definitely make the most of these nausea free days, then!! Thank you smile

I felt the same as you, then eight weeks hit and it was awful - third child and worst morning sickness I have experienced. Could move without gagging. Try not to worry, I hope you stay nausea free - has been a rough couple of months.

That should say couldn't move
