    BFP - but not really any symptoms ??

    Hi girls,

    I got my BFP yesterday and again today just to make sure but other than a slight queasy feeling in my belly (but this could be the excitement of the BFP) I don't have any symptoms really. I have squeezed my boobs, and nothing there!
    My temps have dropped a bit today and yesterday, but I am still only 13 DPO... I suppose I am just doign the usual worrying, but surely I should feel something by now, and my temps should stay up?
    I am having an internal ultrasound on Friday to find out the due date, so hopefully they can see a dot in there at least!

    Any insight?!?

    apple all I can say is I had no idea I was PG and had no symptoms until week 7-8 and then m/s hit with a vengence. There are a few other girls here who have experienced similar things where they haven't "felt" PG. HTH!

    I agree with Christy. I only started to feel a little woozy after the 6 week mark. Before that I felt nothing at all. All during this pg I've only had waves of nausea every so often it wasn't bad at all and I didn't even feel tired. Now the nausea has nearly gone (a couple of days ago I felt sick) and I mainly feel tired after work but that's only just started happening now. The one thing I did notice at about 5 weeks were my breasts looked a lot bigger and I had mentioned to my partner that it looked like I had breast implants, but they really weren't that sore at first.

    Every one is different though.

    I didn't feel anything until I was around 7 weeks.

    Then I felt nauseous and dizzy.

    Hope this helps and that you have a great ultrasound

    Also alot of women have no idea they're pregnant before 4 or 5 weeks, as they have no symptoms. This time around I was feeling ill from about 4 weeks and major painful boobs, but last time I didnt realise I was preg until 6 weeks. How ridiculous. Obviously didn't have regular cycle and wasn't looking out for it, but I felt NOTHING unusual at all!! xoox

    First pregnancy I only had a bit of dizziness and put it down to stress as I was about to be in a wedding party. But apart from that I had nothing and didn't know I was pregnant. Then I ended up being 4wks further into my pregnancy than what we actually thought going by the first u/sound. So definitely no major symptoms for me.

    Hi Apple,

    Its quite normal not to have any symptoms this ealy on in your pregnancy.
    I didn't notice any symtoms of nausea until I was almost 8 weeks pregnant. The only things I noticed at about 4-5 weeks was that I was extra tired and headachey, but this was before I found out that I was pg.

    I do have slightly larger boobs though and i dont know about you but i feel like something is going on in my lower region.....other than that nothing.

    I didnt have morning sickness with my first pregnancy. Just ridiculously tired........guess we've got a few weeks yet.

    Whats an internal ultrasound?
    Just a normal ultrasound, but they have to insert the thingy instead of rub it on your belly.... they get a better view that way, as it is so early.

    Hopefully we won't be eating our words and back here complaining about morning sickness soon!

    apple, even though we were TTC as it was our 5th month and i had been having quite a long cycle i didnt find out we were pregnant till 7 weeks. I had been sick once and was feeling nauseous but that had only just begun, so i put it down to stress. DH and mum suggested i test as i actuallly had an appointment coming up to see a specialist for my PCOs so i thought i would do it to rule it out and DA DA!!

    Hey Apple,

    I didn't get any symptoms at all, and to date I still haven't! If it weren't for the missed AF and the positive blood tests, and later on the ultrasounds, I still wouldn't know!!

    Don't let a lack of symptoms worry you - once you see the 'proof of the pudding' in the u/s, you'll feel a lot better, promise!

    Congrats on your BFP and wishing you a H&H pg,

    So people have had BFPs and no sore boobs? That's my biggest worry, is my boobs feel fine... The ultrasound lady said "Oh, you don't have sore boobs" oh dear 8-[

    Hi Apple
    I had m/s and cramping from very early on, but didn't have sore boobs until 5-6 weeks. A friend of mine went through her entire preg with absolutely no symptoms. Everybody is different.

    Hi Apple, I haven't really had any symptoms and I'm now past 9 weeks. Although I did wish for m/s or something so that I really knew I was pg, I am now glad to be spared! I hope you're lucky too!
