    5 weeks pregnant, not a lot of symptoms
    sdadkin posted:
    This is my 3rd pregnancy (I have 2 boys- they are 2 and 4) and I have not been feeling a lot of symptoms. I found out a week ago I was pregnant. I am 5 weeks today. So far, I haven't really had a lot of symptoms. Just a little bit more moody than normal and of course the exhaustion. I know every pregnancy is different, but with both of my others I was already experiencing the nausea (I never actually threw up, but I felt very nauseas all the time). Is it normal not to experience anything yet? Is it just too soon? My first appointment isn't for a few more weeks. Should I be worried?

    Some don't start to experience till 6 weeks and some do not get any symptoms other than a missed period. I would not be worried at this point. Congrats

    I agree with hgreewood7058. With both my pregnancies, my symptoms didn't start until 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. Some women experience every symptom in the book while others have none while most women are somewhere in the middle.
    sdadkin responded:
    Thanks ladies. I guess I should just count my blessings. Sometimes I just feel normal and it would make me feel better if I was nauseas or something to feel like I am really pregnant. Lol. But I guess it is a good thing though since we haven't told many people yet
    hgreenwood7058 replied to sdadkin's response:
    Yes its a blessing for sure This time around I wasn't nearly as sick as I was with my son and it took a bit for me to start getting sick. But now at 14 weeks its not very frequent. Best wishes
