Further to the thread below, my worry is that I feel absolutely no sick symptoms. It scares me because the general consensus seems to be that the sicker you are, the 'healthier' the pregnancy. Is there anyone out there who doesn't feel sick? I know for all those people who are suffering it must seem I am lucky but it honestly begins to unnerve you when everyone else seems to experience a set of symptoms that you are not. Friends and family seem to be constantly asking me if I feel sick yet and I just don't. I only feel tired.
No sore boobs, just fatigue. My mum was never sick of nauseous with any of her three pregnancies so maybe I am following her pattern. I didn't even feel flicker of sickness at the beginning, and think I have passed any possible sickness stage now. It sounds ridiculous, but I often feel like I have to defend the pregnancy to people who are amazed that I feel no different. I am going to talk to my midwife about it because I feel really nervous. If I woke up feeling nauseous tomorrow I would be pleased!
i didnt feel sick with my second pregnancy with ds but i had really low pregnancy level hormones to the point where i was admitted for an early scan as they thought baby had died. But this was at 17 weeks, but he was fine. Am feeling pretty crap with this pregnancy, but not as bad as my 1st with dd. So i am wondering if the sex has anything to do with it for me, will be interesting if this one is a girl!
I had no sickness at all and now 31 weeks pg and everything fine. I had a mc last time and had never felt sick so obviously I was worried stupid this time round. Midwife said that while many women do feel some mild nausea in early pg the constant vomiting we associate with 'healthy' pg isn't anything like as common as people think. The media has a lot to do with it - think about all the tv shows and films you've seen where you know someone's pg cos they are constantly vomiting first thing in the morning! Midwife said that fatigue is a far more common symptom. I was in bed by 8pm until 16 weeks pg!!
