  • feel? I am getting nervous because I don't "feel" pregnant. I never have, my HCG has always dropped off so fast. But now I KNOW it's going up and I still don't feel anything. A little tired, but my routine has been off this week, bad gas, that's about it. No nausea, no sore breasts....
    Has anyone else had a pregnancy where they just felt normal the first few weeks, no symptoms...?

  • It's not abnormal to have few or no symptoms. Some pregnancies I feel like I'm going to die right from day 1 and other pregnancies I don't feel anything until way later.

    Right now, I have some fatigue (but not an unruly amount), my nipples are tender (but not my whole breasts), and I have lots of gas. But otherwise, I'm pretty much my normal self.


     
    You just wait, girlfriend...those symptoms will soon appear out of nowhere and catch you by surprise. Not that that's a bad thing......

  • I have weird cramps? flutters? - not sure what they are in my stomach and the boobs were a dead giveaway - they are what made me go POAS in the first place. Do not go near them with a ten foot pole they are SO sensitive.

  • I didn't get any major symptoms until i was past the 6 week mark. Before then i felt great and was just a little tired and had lots of gas! When i hit 6 weeks I had full blown nausea, constipation, tender breasts and some crazy cravings.
    I'm about 10 weeks now and some of the sympyoms are lessening although the nausea is still rearing it's ugly head if i don't eat enough or eat too much at once(lesson there). I'm so looking forward to 2nd trimester when all the bad symptoms go away and I start feeling fun stuff like the baby moving and fluttering. I know there are some crazy things associated in the 2nd trimester but i try not to think of that.
    hang in there!

  • Okay! I am feeling it! LOL Whoa I feel like my boobs might actually fall off at some point....they are SO heavy and my nipples are tender and occasionally tender but not too bad, they can still be touched, just extra sensitive!
    I've been having some cramping/aching feelings in my lower abdomen as well. I hope it's normal stuff.
    Other than that I jsut feel sleepy and kinda achy all over...like I am sick, but that often happens when I'm really tired due to fibromyalgia. So who knows. At least I'm feeling something!
