5 weeks pregnant, 12 days after missed period but no symptoms is this normal?

I have a positive HPT but no ms, sore breasts etc. I'm worried something is wrong, I have heardthat if you don't get ms you are more at risk of miscarriage

Perfectly normal at this stage, some have symptoms this early but many don't. Congratulations.

My morning sickness didn't start til 9wks. All I had at 5wks was extreme tiredness and menstrual cramps. Felt like I was due on. Don't worry if u lack symptoms, this does not mean ur at any heightened risk of miscarriage. Id be counting my lucky stars Hehe. Congrats on pregnancy :) x

It's a load of b0ll0cks. When I first joined this forum a year ago, it was full of people claiming lack of symptoms meant a higher risk of miscarriage. I stamped on those theories!

I had no morning sickness, no cravings but did have sore boobs from about 7 weeks.

I did have lightheaded spells before I had a positive pregnancy result - usually only if I stood up suddenly. People tried to say it was impossible to have that so early. Bloody annoys me...

Anyway lol, congratulations and good luck in your pregnancy - hope you are lucky to avoid morning sickness like I was ;)

I had absolutely no hint of morning sickness and had a very healthy pregnancy without a single issue. The only symptom I had was sore boobs but this was only for a few weeks and went completely by week 8. When I told midwife at 8 weeks I was worried about lack of symptoms she thought I was crazy!

Congratulations, enjoy it xx

I had no pregnancy symptoms ( other than getting bigger!) throughout my entire pregnancy and little one is fine.

It's normally I only got morning sickness from 6 weeks and it was very mild, it all depends on how you eat. During my first I had morning sickness really bad but I are differently and was stressed so stay relaxed and look forward to your first scan-

Lack of symptoms does not mean an increase in miscarriage risk. I think it's reassuring for people who are sick as a chip to know its because of the rise in hormones that they feel so rough and is no reflection on those that don't.

Enjoy it though. I've been nauseous and vomited since 6 weeks and although it's much better now and I can actually eat better at 33weeks it's still a daily curse.

Congratulations!

I am 3 weeks late, I was having cramping thinking for sure I'd start, we're in a new month and still thinking maybe I just skipped a month. I'm still waiting, My fiance'e keeps telling me I'm pregnant, but I have to wonder because I have no other symptoms that tell me so. I do get lightheaded sometimes getting up, but other than that nothing. I've taken a pregnancy test it came up negative, but I've read alot of stories where women have taken multipile tests that come out negative, then find out they are pregnant. Could there be something else going on with me?It's kinda nice to hear there are women that don't have symptoms. It's encouraging.
