No symptoms at all - can this be a healthy pregnancy?

It's been a while since I visited the forum, so I am very pleased to come back finally with good news- 4 weeks 5 days today. Hurray!!! What's bugging me is that apart from having missed my period and seeing the gestational sac on the ultrasound today, I have ZERO symptoms. None. No tender breasts, no nausea... I am not feeling any change to my mood or to how my body feels at all. Can't help wondering if this is bad..

Have any of you here had a complete lack of feeling anything different and yet continued to have a healthy pregnancy afterwards? Thanks for feedback!

  • Different pregnancies different symptoms. Some people are lucky and have none at all, with a healthy pregnancy. However symptoms don't normally start till 6weeks or so. Enjoy the lack of nausea as you might be getting it soon!

  • Thank you, roxannacar! I'll try to keep cool!!.. Another thing that confuses me is how the weeks are used to describe how the woman might feel. On friday the doc said I was 4w+5days. That means today I should be 4weeks+7days, ergo tomorrow I start week 5? The descriptions I see online about how you feel and how the baby develops, I am not sure whether they are always dated the same: are they talking about the weeks accomplished (5 weeks meaning 5 weeks are over and in the process of the 6th, like with birthdays) or the week that is in progress (in week 5, meaning 4 weeks are accomplished and week 5 is unfolding...)

    In any case I take from it all best not to worry and just bide my time...

  • Hey not to worry it's too early to find the symptoms wait till 6 weeks u will feel all

    Good luck πŸ€πŸ‘

  • Thank you Muchiya, it helps a lot to get your feedback. I'll feast in the next days on healthy delicious foods until my time is up!

  • Everyone experiences pregnancy differently. With my first I was throwing up every morning before I even knew I was pregnant and I found out at 4 weeks. But then with my second and third it didn't hit till 6 to 8 weeks. So yes it's perfectly normal to not have any symptoms yet or not to feel pregnant. The time will come and you'll be wishing the sickness would go away haha x

  • SC94 thank you! So interesting to hear from you how differently this went for you in different pregnancies. And always with a good pregnancy outcome I presume. So I'll trust the same can be true for me. πŸ˜„

  • I'm 9-10 weeks & had no sickness at all, a little nausea, acid reflux, slightly tender breasts but that's it, oh & very very tired, I could sleep for England πŸ˜΄πŸ’€ hope you stay symptom free x

  • Sleeping for England sounds good! I'll take that gladly as a symptom. (sleeping for the whole world, or for peace on earth πŸ˜‹) . It's fascinating to me that you had no symptoms before then. Really takes the pressure of. Thanks!

  • I know, just 12 weeks today & since replying to the post above seemed to get some energy back, still no harsh symptoms just as before, little nausea & acid reflux that appears to be lying low at the minute. Hope your doing fine x

  • I had no symptoms until 6 weeks. I wish it stayed that way!!

    I have been so so poorly since. The nausea is so bad I was admitted to hospital last week.

    I hope your pregnancy continues symptom free :)

  • On no, I am so sorry for you. How many months are you? Wishing you all the best that you start feeling better soon! I wrote this post as I sort of didn't believe I was pregnant at all. A few days later, it feels much more real even if I haven't joined the ranks of those with symptoms. Good luck to you!!!

  • embrace it!!! You might be one of the lucky ones and not get symptoms. I was fine till around 6 weeks when nausea kicked in, no sickness luckily but felt sick and off food from 3pm till I went to sleep!! Then that wore off and extreme exhaustion/tiredness kicked in! I'm 23 weeks now and apart from a growing belly and boobs I feel completely normal! Everyone's different and it doesn't mean anyone's pregnancy is healthier!

  • 23 weeks, wow, I am so eager to find out what that's like!!!! I still feel completely normal, but yes I accept it is not any sign of something sinister. I did have a big fright reading in the forum that we're not supposed to have hot baths - I'd been bathing every second day up to now, some long hot soaks also. There's always something to worry about....

  • Hi! I'm about 8 weeks now, still waiting on my visit to the midwife & my first scan. I'm actually feeling fine. All I have experienced so far are tender, heavy breasts. No sicknesses or extreme tiredness at all. I think all women are very different! Hope this helps! πŸ˜€

  • Hello Claire, good luck with your first scan!!! For sure not having nausea is a bonus we must enjoy while it lasts.... All the best to you!

  • When will you have the first scan? I find it baffling that some women get offered a scan in the first 6 weeks and others have to wait till the first trimester is almost over...

  • Hi! It'll be just after my 12 weeks that I get my scan, so yes that's my first trimester done! I actually don't know why it's taken so long? It took about 3 weeks for my appointments to come through after visiting the doctor. Maybe it just depends on the hospital? Hope all is good with you! Xx

  • Hey I could sort of relate with you I had no idea I was pregnant with my son. to only find out am 13weeks +5days pregnant this was all due to the fact that I had NOOO Symptoms what soo ever from beginning to end which upset me as I wanted to experience what other women complain about. but then after a while I gave up and started to enjoy not having them symptoms. So you might just be the lucky few who don't experience them stuff like me . My son was born healthy and is now 6 Months.

    Congratulations and I wish you a pleasant pregnancy. πŸ˜†πŸ˜† make sure you enjoy it as much as you can.

  • Hello Funnyface19,

    Wow that is amazing finding about your little one only at 13 weeks. Did you then feel quite calm about it all or did you worry "what if I ate something I wasn't supposed to etc."? I am trying to get everything right and yet find so many things to worry about that I might be doing wrong...

    It is bizarre reading about all the symptoms that women have and not getting any of those. Your story helps me to feel normal. Thank you!!!

    Glad your boy is well and healthy! All the best to you borh!

  • I'm 8 weeks today and I felt really tired sore breasts bloating and the constant need to go to the toilet at 5 weeks but now I have nothing and haven't had anything for about a week or 2! I have my first midwife appointment Tuesday and am hoping everything is good. But everyone keeps telling everyone's different my friend said she never had anything apart from huge breasts with her three and another woman said she had bad sickness.

    Congratulation btw

  • Hi, I'm 9 weeks 2 days and have no symptoms but had a 6 week scan (was under a fertility clinic) and everything was fine. Just wondering if you did develop any symptoms at all in the end?
