So, I'm getting a little worried......

I don't feel at all pregnant.  I'm 5+1 today, and it was at 5 weeks with both previous pregnancies that I was feeling incredibly nauseous. It was the nausea with both that made me test! But this time - nothing. I feel nothing at all actually. Not extra tired, no sore breasts. Just, nothing.

I can't have my dating scan for another week, I only just had bloods taken on Thursday just gone. GP said come back in after scan.

Has anyone else not felt the same as previous pregnancies but had a good outcome?

Hi everyone! I’m also joining after getting my BFP a couple of weeks ago. Going by my dates I’m due 7th November. This will be number 3 for me. I have two boys aged 2 and 3 1/2. I also had a miscarriage last year so I’m a bit nervous but definitely have more symptoms this time around. Congratulations to everyone! Hope the next 8ish months go smoothly for us all! :)

so i literally just came on here to talk about how panicked i have been over the last 2 days.
so im now 7 + 2, but i've never had crazy symptoms. i've had sore boobs, burping, nausea, bloating on and off, but nothing sever at all.
the last few days i felt the symptoms lessen even more and now im completely freaking out. literally to the point i struggle to even sleep.
i have my first scan on Tuesday morning, but even that feels so far away! im now stuck in a ruck of just feeling empty :(

has anybody else had this? i know every pregnancy is different, and this is my first so i have no idea. my mum didn't have symptoms at all when pregnant with her kids so maybe we are just lucky??? but i am seriously so stressed and sad. i feel like ive written it off already...

Ohhhhello it sounds somewhat similar to my pregnancy with DD - I had sore boobs, was tired and was more hungry but that was it. I didn't have any nausea, no cravings or food aversions or anything like that. Also my symptoms really dropped off around 9 weeks. I remember completely freaking out in the weeks before my 12 week scan because I was convinced it had all gone wrong. But no, she was perfectly healthy and it was the most textbook pregnancy you could ever ask for!

Contratulations to all the newcomers, it’s great to see our little group grow!
I can totally relate to panicking, I haven’t had any symptoms and its freaking me out slightly. No fatigue, I’m still exercising every day, no tender boobs and no super sense of smell! I’d just like a teeny tiny symptom please so I know everything is going well in there! I had quite bad ms with my first and had to hug the toilet multiple times a day. I know it’s still early days for me at 4+5, but it’s hard not to worry. And I know when MS will hit I will just wish for it to go away again!

Hi and welcome Blujay! I had almost close to zero symptoms with my boys and wondered the same thing. They are now 3 and 5. In contrast my last pregnancy that ended in MC I was actually quite sick. This time around I'm quite sick again... and convinced it's a girl because it's so different from my boys. All the best and fx for you!

Ohhello with my boys I had very little symptoms. My boobs were the tiniest bit sore (not even that, just different) with what felt like pre menstrual cramping (so light but frequent) and even those symptoms disappeared quickly until nothing from about 7-8 weeks.

The dating scan for both i was surprised there was something in there!

So have hope, lack of symptoms can be normal! Fx for your scan Tuesday x

Hi BluJay and ohhhhello. Just wanted to add that I had a very similar experience to Summer81 with both of my boys. Very little symptoms, some mild nausea but that was about it. I was also nervous going for my scans, I thought they might tell me I was crazy and had imagined the whole thing! This time around my nausea is worse so it just goes to show that each pregnancy can be different. Fingers crossed for both of you!

Hi all!

A pregnancy AND forum newbie here - excuse me in advance if I don't know the lingo or abbreviations!!

I took a positive pregnancy test x 2 on Thursday after a missed period and just had my blood test yesterday to confirm. It all feels very surreal and I'm not even saying the P word yet. My periods are longish (31-37 days) and irregular so not sure how far along I am, but my LMP was 8th Feb. According to calculations I'm getting anything from around 4 and a half to 6 weeks.

Symptoms so far are a little bit of tiredness the last day or two (enough to have an arvo nap where I never normally would) and some very occasional passing cramps that feel like light period pains. My sister and mum had very severe nausea and vomiting throughout so I am gearing up for a hellish time pretty soon.

So far, the whole thing is very surreal and I'm feeling cautious, nervous, and the odd bit of excitement. When did it start to 'feel real' for you? I am expecting it will be at least until after the first scan for me.

I'm in the western suburbs of Melbourne and hoping to get on to the caseload program at the Women's - will ask for a referral from my GP when I go back for blood results. Any experience with caseload?

Congrats to all, looking forward to sharing some of the journey with all you wonderful women! xx

Welcome Sophmarg, I know exactly what you mean, I even though this is my second it feels very sureal!
I’m from Melbourne too and had my first baby at the Women’s, I did shared care so don’t think I could’ve gotten into the caseload program too? But, I just wanted to say all the midwives we encountered at the RWH were amazing, I had a male midwife for my birth and I couldn’t have faulted him! I’ve decided to go private this time but only because it’s my second and I’d like those extra few days at the hospital so I can bond with the new baby, otherwise I definitely would’ve gone back to the women’s!

Hope you have an uneventful 8 months ahead of you and morning sickness is holding off for a while!

That is comforting to hear about RWH, RunningRuby! I hear great things, I must say, particularly about the midwives.

Hope it goes well for you too!

When I was pregnant with my son, it didn't start to 'feel real' until the 12 week scan and I saw him looking like a 'real baby'. Hasn't really sunk in this time around yet either...

I have a son and daughter already, and with both I never had any sickness or much symptoms at all. Sore boobs was pretty much it! I remember going in to our 12 week scan with my son and the lady was like “how are you going today?” and I was like “umm, good, I just want to make sure there is actually something in there”. 😂😂😂 With my daughter I had early on spotting, so had scans at around 5.5 and 9 weeks, so I knew she was in there early on, but again, no actual symptoms. I’m the same at the moment too, sore boobs and that’s it! I did have some spotting last week, at about the 5.5 week mark, so I’m half thinking this little bean is another girl.

Try and a stay positive everyone! If there was one thing I learnt having my older two, it’s that not everyone gets sick! I was surprised at how many people said to me that they were never sick. I kind of feel like morning sickness is more publicised and talked about and you just assume you will be sick because of it!
