Post subject: I shouldn't moan, but.....
I shouldn't moan, but.... I'm only having very mild pregnancy symptoms and its worrying me a bit that all might not be well. With my first I had really heavy discharge (sorry tmi) and I was hit really severly with hyperemisis at 5 ish weeks. This time it's so different I've just had a few headaches and been really tired, a little nausea but nothing like before. I'm only 5 weeks but was sort of expecting to have my head down the loo by now. It sounds rediculous I know but all the time I was being sick I felt reassured the pregnancy was going the right way. Do I sound crazy! Anyone had similar experiences with pregnancies?

I had no symptoms at all with my first pregnancy, no tiredness, no nausea, no sore boobs absolutely nothing, apart from a missed period and a positive test of course .
I didn't even have a bump at all until after 20 weeks and didn't feel pregnant until I felt my first kick at 21 weeks
I haven't been so 'lucky' with all of them though and have had dizzy spells, low blood pressure, nausea and even IBS kick in from 5-6 weeks and felt sick as a dog with other pregnancies and then last time round I again had no symptoms at all and didn't even know until 13 1/2 weeks
The 2 with no symptoms were the only 2 where I had no early bleeds or spotting as well The one I had most early problems with including leaking waters and several bleeds between 7 and 16 weeks was the one I had the most symptoms with So I don't really think symptoms (or a lack of them ) really relate to how well the pregnancy is going
I just think all pregnancies and your body's reactions to them will be different every time xx

LOL I thought asking about it at 5 weeks was a bit early
With both my pregnancies I started with the nausea and sickness and tiredness about 6 weeks 4 days. First pregnancy it lasted through till 16 weeks, this pregnancy it lasted till 12 weeks and now I only feel a bit sick first thing in the morning and then I am fine the rest of the day
I'm expecting your next post to be along the lines of ' Oh when will this sickness end...' Hope it's not long for you

I also felt a bit silly asking but with my first I was hit with hyperemisis at 5 weeks and it continues until 28 weeks. I was almost hospitalised with it and spent 23 weeks on medication. So was expecting it to hit me the same but it crept up a bit more gradually this time, started at 6 weeks, back on tablets and still throwing up, happy days! My gp said to me 'ill give you a long prescription as I expect you will be like this for a long time again'! Oh well will just have to ride the storm
