No morning sickness (yet). Should I be worried?

Hi all,
I'm 6+3 and this is my first pregnancy. Other than a few fleeting moments of feeling sick (this could have been nerves/anxiety) I've not had any sickness or nausea yet. Is it too early to be experiencing this as a symptom or have I just been lucky? I read that morning sickness means a healthier pregnancy but I'm not sure if this was just scaremongering on the internet. I've had other symptoms (sore boobs, mild cramping, tiredness) but no nausea. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi, my first pregnancy I didn't experience any nausea until 6 weeks and then I had it until 16 weeks. I also know plenty of people who had no sickness at all. So don't worry if you don't feel sick it doesn't mean there's something wrong. Hopefully you'll be lucky and not feel any sickness.

I've just found out I'm pregnant with my second so hoping I'm going to escape sickness this time!

I only ever felt sick when brushing my teeth and never had proper morning sickness with either of my 2 pregnancies

I never had any sickness or nausea when I was expecting DS, I know a few others who haven't had much or any either.
I has a perfectly healthy and easy pregnancy.

My SIL has 5 DCs and only gets sickness from her 3rd to 5th months (so usually between her scans) and she said this is reasonably common.
I also have known people to have sickness and nausea from very early on in the pregnancy.

So really you could be lucky or it could just be too early for you, there isn't really a point at which it starts and ends.

Mine didn't start until about 8 weeks, but it's still going strong at 31!

I didn't experience any sickness or nausea until I was 10 weeks. I was worried like you but many people don't get any sickness.

Congratulations flowers

I didn't have morning sickness at all and have had two babies. Only time I felt a bit sick was when I ate raw onion or chilli that I popped into my mouth while cooking, I could no longer tolerate it.

My sickness always starts at around 7 weeks and goes on to about 18. Enjoy not having it for now!

My mum never had any sickness with me or my dsis or dbro- I think it varies woman to woman xx

I haven't had any morning sickness yet. I'm 35 weeks.

Nectarines Sun 27-Dec-15 17:47:18

33 weeks and have only really felt nauseous if I let myself get too hungry!

ammature Sun 27-Dec-15 17:48:34

No sickness here. 34 weeks now!

I posted the exact same thread about 2 weeks ago when I was 6 weeks, I was worried as well with my lack of ms but have exact same other symptoms you listed there. 8 weeks tomorrow and am feeling it more and more strong now 😞 I wouldn't be worried if I were you. Only 75% of women get it, you could be in the lucky quarter that don't. Although be careful what you wish for!

socktastic Sun 27-Dec-15 18:18:52

Mine started at 7 weeks and it's beginning to ease now at 13.5 weeks. my friend is also pregnant just now at 24 weeks and she hasn't had sickness at all. It may be that it won't happen for you.

firesidechat Sun 27-Dec-15 18:28:37

My mum had 3 children and I had 2 and neither of us had any morning sickness. My daughter had it with one of hers and not the other. Let's hope you're one of the lucky ones op.

LikeADivil Sun 27-Dec-15 18:47:38

I had no morning sickness at all. Have a very healthy child!

It's not a given!

Best of luck with your pregnancy.

Don't be worried, be grateful! !!

Rpj16 Sun 27-Dec-15 18:50:32

I had no morning sickness, but like Necterines mentioned, if I don't have enough to eat/drink I feel nauseous. Actually nearly fainted due to this during 1st trimester. Make sure you eat enough and regularly smile Congrats!

SharyBobbins Sun 27-Dec-15 23:09:26

Thank you for the reassurance! I'll count myself lucky (for now!). Fingers crossed nausea stays away!

Glad im not the only one. Still worried something wrong as apart from when hungry ive had no sickness and im 10 weeks judging by last period. (Have taken 4 tests now to make sure)

FusionChefGeoff Tue 29-Dec-15 20:45:43

Never had it here. 2DCs and both trouble free pregnancy, birth and healthy so far.

Luckygirlcharlie Tue 29-Dec-15 21:55:29

You may not get any. With ds1 it was 7 weeks til about 16 weeks and then came back around 32 weeks. This time felt sick (worse than last time) practically from conception til 15 weeks and it's just come back at 29 weeks. Bluuurgh. It's shit. Enjoy feeling good while you can! X

Thanks ladies, I know I just need to stop worrying and try and reign in the anxiety. The frustrating thing is that if I did have morning sickness that would make me really anxious too.

For the first few weeks my boobs were practically throbbing, had loads of CM and was really tired. Now my boobs don't hurt as much, CM seems to have dried up and I've got a bit more energy (although I don't go back to work until tomorrow so that may explain the latter!). I'm 7+3 today. POAS yesterday and the line appeared straight away and was darker than the test line. Yet I still can't seem to accept that maybe I AM pregnant and I AM one of the lucky ones who hasn't had sickness. We'd had our first fertility appointment two weeks before my BFP (actually conceived on the day of the appointment!) and I'd convinced myself we wouldn't conceive without help so that might explain my anxious outlook!

Hi I am in the same boat! Just over seven weeks and no sickness but extremely anxious about it kicking in, to the point where I don't want to leave the house just in case I feel ill. I'd say I'm emetophobic as I've only been sick twice in over ten years and I have a panic attack if I feel slightly queasy.
But I'm also worrying that my lack of sickness means things aren't developing or progressing like they should be.
I want to be one of those lucky ladies that just don't get MS but that seems too much to ask for!

Morning sickness isn't compulsory smile.
I'm on my third pregnancy - 9 weeks in and this one's twins. I've never had more than the occasional wave of nausea - I was sick once when pregnant with ds, but that was because I smelled something really rank grin.

If you're worried about getting sick down the line, get yourself a good quality b-complex vitamin supplement. There's some evidence that if you take vit B6 before the onset of morning sickness, you're unlikely to get it. Apparently it doesn't necessarily reverse morning sickness if you've already got it, but some people think it can improve things.
