Fairly new on this, I got a positive test a couple of weeks ago - yippee! But now not feeling v pregnant, chest is no longer tender and not feeling so knackered (and not had any morning sickness). No bleeding but just wondering if could just no longr be preggers - am I over worrying??
Not sure if I just need some reassurance or it is just too early to have lots of symptoms?!

Any comments appreciated

I didn't have any symptoms at all in my 3rd pg apart from getting bigger. I was sure I wasn't pg at my 12 week scan but everything was fine. I didn't get morning sickness with my others until 8 weeks and no symptoms before that.

Hi having had bad morning sickness with both my two sons, I was waiting for it to kick in with this one but it never did, and apart from initial sore boobs had very few symptoms so much so that I took further pregnancy tests just to reassure myself! I am now 14 weeks and had my dating scan and all was well, so I guess it is very much the case that every pregnancy is different! try not to worry, but maybe ask for an early scan to reassure you? Good luck x

My first pregnancy my symptoms disappeared, I only got sickness feeling when brushing my teeth! Try not to worry! Your notice about 10weeks or so you might start getting a bloated tummy or unable to some clothes up as welL!

Congratulations! Try not to worry Rooby, the symptoms lists that are generally given are always 'potentials'.

I never had morning sickness with my pregnancy, no metallic taste in my mouth and my boobs were fine until about 10 weeks when they started getting a bit out of control grin The tiredness only kicked in later too.

If you're feeling well, just look on the bright side and look forward to the rest of your pregnancy. If you're really worried though, just give your midwife a call, I'm sure she'll be able to put your mind at rest. Good luck smile

I have had 3 miscarriages and I have 2 DCs and in every single pregnancy I have never had any symptoms to speak of - no sickness, and not really tored either. Occasionally sore breasts but very random. I suppose what I am trying to say is that regardless of whether I had a good or bad outcome the symptoms (or lack of them) were the same.

Try not to worry - they won't be able to pick up a heartbeat yet but if you are really anxiuos you could speak to your midwife / go to your local walk in centre at around 7 - 8 weeks and see if they might give you an early scan?

ok cheers, good to hear all your experiences, maybe I just need to try and not over think about this - is just so difficult when its your first time! And fingers crossed if is ok I should maybe be glad that not feeling sick..

I didn't have any symptoms at all for seven weeks. Then I was sick as a dog for 2 weeks, then in hospital for 6 weeks with hyperemis (excessive vomiting in pregnancy) on a drip. Once the sickness had gone (at about 14 weeks) I had no symptoms apart from a big tummy. No fatigue, no swollen feet, no heart burn, no nothing. So, don't count your chickens, but maybe no need to worry either!

bikerunski - crikey - thats sounds tough going - hope it kept going (or went) smoother from there on in, I will keep my fingers crossed

am 27 weeks, and not a single symptom yet! At 8 week scan (was IVF so have early scan) i burst into tears as i walked through door convinced that there was nothing there. At 12 weeks I MADE them scan me even though they weren't going to because I still didnt feel or look pregnant. Anyway, it appears not everyone gets symptoms, but all those with morning sickness tell me NOT to wish it upon myself just so I can feel pregnant. Apparently it's horrible!

Hi all

I've just found out I'm pregnant (yay!) with second child putting me at about 5 weeks.

I've had some early symptoms - sore boobs, slight cramping, suddenly feeling very hot, restless nights, weeing a lot and a little more tired that usual but today feel totally fab with none of these symptoms at all hmm.

I'm trying to think back to my first pregnancy and from what I can remember I had some early symptoms and then felt really good for about 4 days and then gradually over a week the sickness and tiredness kicked in and stayed with me until I was about 15 weeks.

It's different for everyone though isn't it? So fingers crossed for all of us who are newly pregnant and a little bit worried!

I've spent the whole day "checking" myself every 5 minutes blush ... how silly is that?

don't worry i had no symptoms at all until 7 weeks and then felt very sick and wished the symptoms would go away! now am 17 and only symptom is feeling fat, don't even have a bump!

I woke up this morning and am convinced my boobs hurt less... I'm 7+3. I can't work out if I have just gotten used to it or the soreness is fading and I'm worried too! Drs on Friday though which will set my mind at rest hopefully. Good luck x

I think this is quite normal. I looked back in my little pregnancy diary and I had written,"6 weeks and no symptoms..." so I think it is fine.

The TTC area (where I spent a lot of time) is full of people going, "Oh I feel really tired this week and my breasts are swollen" I don't know if we all just imagine it.......?

But like everyone says, if you are that worried then ask for an early scan, do another test, whatever?!
