No morning sickness or anything, well until recently, im 11wks and about a week or 2 ago I started get m/s, no fun. Just be glad your not having any symtoms yet!

    I am about 4 days ahead of you and I just hit some symptoms of being tired, bloated, sore boobs, and peeing alot. With my last pregnancy I feel like I didn't have symptoms till I was around 6 weeks so I think it is normal not to feel different at first.
    Most doctors see their patients for the first time before 8 weeks pregnant. That seems like a pretty long wait for the first visit. My first appointment is exactly at 6 weeks, next monday. I searched the internet like crazy to find an OBGYN who would meet earlier then 8 weeks (cause I had horrible morning sickness starting at 6 weeks last time so I need medicine quick) and do more than one ultrasound. My last doctor only did one routine ultrasound and this one will do at least 3 including the 6 week appointment. You should call around or search the internet to make sure there isn't a better OBGYN in your area.

    I am so glad to hear that it is normal to have minimal symptoms (slightly sore nipples, minimal nausea) this early on, I am 5 weeks 3 Days, and I told my husband that I really dont know if I am still pregnant! I have my u/s Tuesday 1/18 and I am so anxious...

    Lurking...yes, it is perfectly normal. Every pregnancy is different. I did not have any symptoms until I was close to 10 or 11 weeks. Most doctors will not schedule your first appt until you are at least 8 weeks, some do it a little sooner. Enjoy this time and don't rush the preggo symtoms....they will probably be here soon enough! Congrats!

    Yes i would say i didn't have any symptoms when i first took the HPT. I think the signs will come within the next two weeks or so. Congrats!!

    I started having symptoms around five weeks. I am lucky, as I work in Labor and Delivery, and was able to "visit" with my OB much sooner than most!
