I'm 6+2 and have sore boobs but not too bad although they are swollen, yesterday and the day before I felt a bit nauseous all afternoon but haven't come close to feeling sick and I'm feeling more tired than usual. Apart from that I feel fine. I'm worried I should have stronger symptoms by now?

I remember having sore boobs but nothing else. My sickness didn't start until about 8/9 weeks.

At six weeks? Uncontrollable vomiting up to fifty times a day.

Tiredness and a little nausea. Your symptoms sound normal. Some people get none like my lucky best friend!

My nausea kicked in at 6 weeks and I felt sick most of the day but especially in the evening. Boobs didn’t get sore until second trimester weirdly but did have sensitive nipples. Felt shattered all of the time and I haven’t stopped peeing constantly from the beginning.

I felt highly nauseous at certain smells I’d barely noticed before. Cleaning products and perfumes I’d used for years made me feel sick. The smell sensitivity is the thing I remember most vividly, but also general tiredness.

My boobs were massive (they've not been that SORE though, just big) and I was nauseous pretty much all day. Oh, and I was beginning to get VERY tired at that point.

Hey,

I’m 16 weeks now. I’ve barely had anything in the way of symptoms....my boobs weren’t even that sore (just bigger). Early on I felt like I had a mild hangover for a few hours here and there, but nothing much. I slept a lot - but I’ve always been a keen napper! I had said to my midwife and she said it’s nothing to worry about if you don’t get any. Quite a few of my friends barely had symptoms too!

I heard the baby’s heartbeat for the first time today and it was nice and strong 🙂

Uncontrollable vomiting ... started at 6 weeks on the dot with dc1 and 5 weeks with dc2, I wasn’t ready for it to start even earlier!! But lots of people are fine at 6 weeks smile

i'm 6 + 1 and having exactly the same symptoms, slightly nauseous now and again, boobs a bit sore and more tiered than normal but if i wasn't looking for symptoms i'd say i'm feeling pretty normal.

At 6 weeks I had tender and larger boobs, and was a bit more tired than usual. At 9 weeks now I still only have the odd wave of nausea.

usernotfound0000 Thu 24-May-18 11:11:39

Really sore boobs and permanently hard nipples, nausea, tiredness, bloating, dizziness. But in my first pregnancy absolutely none.

Poppy2507 Thu 24-May-18 11:16:42

At the time I thought I was 6 weeks I had nausea really bad 24/7, but no vomiting. Nipples that hurt in the shower. Lots of excess saliva. Fainted once. Dizzy. It was actually my worst week. Then i had my scan and turns out it was actually week 7, so my actual week sick was just a few odd waves of nausea. everyones different! good luck with the next few weeks! x

I'm 6 + 3 and my symptoms have been fine so far. Mainly tiredness and occasional nausea but nothing horrendous. I think my boobs are only just starting to get a bit niggly but again, nothing horrendous.

SoyDora Thu 24-May-18 13:42:43

Nothing.
Now at 8.5 weeks I’m exhausted, have constant nausea, sickness and can’t even cook the DC’s dinner without throwing up.

ellsharks Thu 24-May-18 13:47:01

At 6 weeks I just had terribly sore boobs... i felt tired but my sickness didnt start until 7/8 weeks. Then it all went by 10 weeks x

User12879923378 Thu 24-May-18 13:51:55

None apart from breasts sometimes hurting and slight crampy/stretchy pains. Nausea didn't kick in until end of week 7/beginning of week 8.

allthatmalarkey Thu 24-May-18 13:52:42

Only half of us get any nausea at all. I know someone who ran a 10k at 4 months. I, on the other hand, felt like I'd been hit by a truck.

Shufflebumnessie Thu 24-May-18 13:53:14

At 6 weeks with DS I felt mildly nauseous, tender breasts, tired, my face was spotty & my hair was lank but I generally felt ok.

At 6 weeks with DD I'd already been vomiting for much of the day & night for 2 weeks, I couldn't eat or drink anything without being sick, I was so tired I could hardly get out of bed & I had horrendous vertigo. On the plus side my skin was blemish-free & looked fab grin

ActualMermaid Thu 24-May-18 13:56:06

My morning sickness started at 5 weeks but I didn't notice anything other than that, until a few weeks later when I started getting sore nipples and feeling more tired than normal.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Try not to spend your time comparing yourself to others - I got myself so stressed out doing the same thing but everybody is different. smile

OrangeAztec Thu 24-May-18 16:57:11

Thank you all for replying. I have just been asleep on the sofa for two hours so I guess the tiredness is kicking in more than before!

MouseLove Thu 24-May-18 17:05:59

Tiredness. Just very very tired. And the odd wave of food aversion. But touch wood I am now 13+2 and not had much of anything. I think my boobs stopped hurting (and it was pretty mild) at 7/8 weeks and the stretching and niggling aches started. But I'm still tired. 😂 actually, tell a lie. I get very very mild nausea sometimes in the evening. Eating bland food helps.

sweetiehuni Thu 24-May-18 20:10:47

I didn't have any and still don't apart from headaches and I'm nearly 12 weeks x

Rockandrollwithit Thu 24-May-18 20:13:02

Vomiting. All the vomiting. Up to 20 times a day 🤢

BridgeFarmKefir Thu 24-May-18 20:17:55

Evening nausea and complete exhaustion!
