No morning sickness at 7.5 weeks

I know this is quite a common topic on here but desperately want some reassurance! Am pregnant again after three miscarriages (no previous children) - I had a good first scan last week and this is the furthest I've ever got, but I'm finding it so hard not to worry about having no real symptoms, and particularly no morning sickness. There are a million newspaper articles etc reporting a study that found that women who didn't have it were much more likely to miscarry - they're all written as if this is amazing news because it'll cheer up the sick women, but they're such gloomy reading if you're not having morning sickness! I know no one can tell me what will happen with this one, but just hoping for some experiences? Is it really that bad a sign?

Not everyone gets it. I did with my first (felt a bit queasy at times) but not at all with my second.

Completely sickness and nausea free with my second.

Sick as a dog with the first.

I also just want to moan that the tone of all these articles is so unhelpful: 'In fact, if you do feel sick, research suggests you're less likely to have a miscarriage (clouds, silver linings, and all that).' - that one comes from good old MN itself. I'm not trying to downplay how awful severe morning sickness must be, but I find the idea that having a miscarriage is somehow a fair trade-off for not getting it so, so insensitive!

I'm 20+2 and have been very lucky not to have any sickness so far! I too read those reports and thought something might be wrong, but in some pregnancies you're just not sick. Best of luck with your pregnancy x

Some people just don’t get morning sickness. I didn’t have any with my DD and had a really straight forward pregnancy. Second time I felt worse, far more sickness - I had a missed miscarriage. Third time I didn’t feel much sickness again, currently 17 weeks!

So sickness isn’t a sign all is well and no sickness isn’t a bad sign either. It’s horrible the first 12 weeks, but just keep going and hopefully all will be ok this time.

I had 0 sickness with my girl throughout my pregnancy. Just terrible spd from 25 weeks 😂 x

I'm at 10 weeks and not had the slightest bit of nausea or sickness and had a scan last week and all was fine. We aren't the norm but there are plenty of successful pregnancies without morning sickness

Try not to worry, I know it's hard though. I very luckily sailed through my first two pregnancies with no sickness at all. In fact, virtually no symptoms at all.
This time round I've been constantly nauseous for the past week and I'm only 6 weeks in and it's taken me by surprise.

I've had nausea but never actually vomited in either of my pregnancies. It's very hard to stay chilled out about it when there's such a huge expectation that early pregnancy will be plagued with random vomiting as a normal sign.

Best of luck with your pregnancy flowers

I had no sickness at all with either of my two DC.

Girlwiththearabstrap Mon 04-Dec-17 18:34:20

No sickness with my daughter and none this time round either. I'm 18 weeks.

BroomstickOfLove Mon 04-Dec-17 18:35:49

I remember with both of mine being very worried about my lack of sickness at 6-7 weeks, and then from week 8 spending the following 2 months vomiting 8 times a day.

LisaSimpsonsbff Mon 04-Dec-17 18:36:03

Thanks so much - this is cheering me up! Just to check, when people say no sickness, do they just mean no vomiting or no nausea either? Because I know lots of women get nausea without vomiting - but I've had neither.

Mine started at 10 weeks so you never know!

GrockleBocs Mon 04-Dec-17 18:39:47

Five pregnancies (not all successful sad ) but no sickness with any of them. Never went off any foods either.

Ninjamilo Mon 04-Dec-17 18:44:51

I know what you mean about the articles - try and avoid them, I drive myself mad in early pregnancy.

20 weeks this week and I haven't felt nauseous or had morning sickness at all. Besides sore boobs around 7 weeks and tiredness, I've had pretty much no Symptoms and could easily not know I was pregnant!

Derekmorganwasinmybed Mon 04-Dec-17 18:48:17

I had no sickness or nausea

Figgygal Mon 04-Dec-17 18:52:24

2 kids no sickness no nausea either time

noodleaddict Mon 04-Dec-17 18:55:31

I'm nearly at end of second pregnancy and had no nausea or vomiting in either of them. Wishing you luck op

Humv Mon 04-Dec-17 19:03:08

Another one here with no nausea or vomiting through my pregnancy and had a healthy happy boy! Congratulations, enjoy your pregnancy smile

I've had two pregnancies and was horrifically sick with both. I sadly lost the first baby at 17 weeks, but the pregnancy symptoms were exactly the same second time round, and I now have a 6 month old baby. Try not to worry. I know it's hard to enjoy the early stages when you have experienced what it's like for the pregnancy not to work out, but you will start to feel pregnant soon I'm sure!

Spam88 Mon 04-Dec-17 19:04:05

No sickness here and my 6 month old is currently sleeping on me smile

First baby I was sick as a dog, aching boobs and SPD from 13 weeks. Second baby only the bump and absence of AF were the symptoms!
