7 Weeks Pregnant & No Morning Sickness

hello everyone. i was wondering if its common not to experience morning sickness at 7 weeks, when you know your other pregnancies always started out as morning sickness as first sign of pregncy. I was always nauseous at 5 weeks, and it was pretty bad. Now at 7 weeks, nothing, it kind of worries me. I know i got pregnant, went to doctor & got 5 week ultrasound , now experiencing hunger, tiredness, very sore nipples. i'm going to the doctor in 2 days, but for now just wanted to know if its normal not to have the same symptoms as previous preg??. i have to add that i'm breasfeeding now, that may effect the nausea?? thank you for your response

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

thank you all for your responses. sure enough i'm pregnant and by the end of 8th week i startd to get morning sicknes which got even worse by 10th week. with my first child a barely threw up, but now it happens much more often , almost every day. yes, i realize every pregnancy is different, so i should not expect to feel the same through out these long months. thank you for you replies, it really helped me to get a peace of mind before my doctor's appointment.
Update: Now i'm almost 14 weeks pregnant and i've started having morning sickness from end of 8th week, and actually it is a bit worse then with my daughter, because i throw up most of the time, and almost only abput 3 times in previous pregnancy. and it still continues...

TOTALLY NORMAL not to have morning sickness.

I had a beautiful healthy baby and never even once experienced even a tiny bit of nausea -- never mind throwing up....I didn't get morning sickness at all.... you should be fine!

And they say that each pregnancy is always different from the rest!

Every pregnancy is different. With my first child, I had morning sickness for 4 months. I'm 18 weeks pregnant now, and I had morning sickness for 3 months this time. Be thankful for now that you are not feeling like you want to die. Ugh. Good luck.

This is very normal, with my first child I was sick from conception up until the 4th month. I am now pregnant again and nothing!! I was worried too but I am now in my 4th month and still morning sickness free. Every pregnancy is different from what I was told and we should be grateful to not experience it again..lol I hope this helps ease your mind until your next doctor's appointment.

I have read from several different sources that you can have 4 pregnancies and each one be totally different. Try to enjoy not being sick! The last thing that you need is to bring on stress. I never experienced any sickness at all during my pregnancy, nor did I have any complications at all. Maybe you'll have the same luck this time around! Good luck to you! R.

With my first pregnancy I did not get sick at all until I was 13 weeks, and it lasted through most of the 2nd trimester and was spotty in the third. This pregnancy (I am pregnant now, 29 weeks) I started with morning sickness at 8 weeks, around 13 it went away, and has been very spotty since. Consider yourself lucky as long as you don't have it, and remember everyone's body is different, and every pregnant will be different, so what is normal for you may not be normal for anyone else. I know it's hard to not get caught up in this stuff, it only gets more so the more pregnant you get, wait until you have people asking you if you are eatting enough because you seem too small, or if you are eatting too much because you are so big. Like I said, everyone, every body, it's all different, try to just relax and enjoy, it's a wonderful journey!

I have only had one child, so i can't say whether or not you should have the same symptoms every time, but I can tell you that during my pregnancy I did not have morning sickness ever, I went through the whole pregnancy never throwing up once and everything was fine and normal, so I wouldn't worry about it, just be thankful. I was!

I would say be thankful you don't have the morning sickness. EVERY pregnancy is different. I thankfully never had morning sickness with either of my boys. Other things can also play into factor. If you body is different now than it was with the other pregnancy's, if your eating habbits have changed, many things play a role.
Just be thankful you don't have it now and continue to take care of yourself.

Each pregnancy is different so I wouldn't worry about it if the doctor has confirmed everything is ok. I've had three children and every single pregnancy, recovery, everything was different.

Congratulations!

BTW, do be sure your doctor knows you are nursing because most times they want you to stop I think.

I don't think there is any issue with not having morning sickness. Not everyone does. I didn't for either pregnancy! ALso, this doesn't sound liek something you should be complaining about. ANy doctor will also tell you that every pregnancy is different. Some people get headaches some people gain weight right away some have morning sickness and some are just sick the whole pregnancy.

Every pregnancy is different. One person may have all the regular "symptoms" and another may have nothing and may have the easiest pregnancy there is. Same thing with pregnancies in one person. My cousin had really bad heartburn/naseau the first few months with her first and then was pretty much fine all through her second child. There is no set rule and there are no necessary symptoms. Actually your feeling tired, hungry, and sore nipples are more common then morning sickness. You should go by those guidlines more. But even then, just try to relax. Sometimes stress can do more to you than the pregnancy symptoms. You have gotten an ultrasound, and pregnancy was confirmed. Just take it easy, and get the rest you need. It will be fine! Enjoy being mommy and try not to worry.

Hi Y.

I was pregnant while breastfeeding and can tell you that the nipple soreness will be worse around 20 weeks of pregnancy. That definitely did happen, although i breastfed thru the entire pregnancy.

The morning sickness is different with each pregnancy- some moms get more sickness with a girl and none with a boy, and others vice versa, there is really no telling although there are many old wives tales that if it's a girl, you get sick and your face changse, while with a boy, you look beautiful and glow! :)

Hope that helped a bit!

Not every pregnancy is the same. I have 2 kids and both pregnancys were completely different, with my son who is now 11 yrs old,I did not have any moring sickness, heartburn, nothing... I swear it was the most perfect ppregnancy ever and with my daughter now 11 wks old, I was very nausios (I never vomited though) and I was so uncomfortable about half way through the pregnancy. Both of my children are healthy. I think it is safe not to worry. I also think that brest feeding may have alot to do with it. I would still ask the doctor when you go in 2 days anyway. Best of luck

J.

I am 16 weeks pregnant and experienced much the same as you. All I can say is that we should count our blessings. I've had so many friends just be absolutely miserable with morning sickness, we got lucky. Right now, everything looks good for me (knock on wood) and I'm just happy that I made it through these first few months being able to work and commute with out feeling the need to hurl everywhere.

i would ask the doc if you could come in for blood work and ultra sound just to be safe and check on everything...i thought you arent supposed to breast feed while you are pregnant...check with your doc on that one

i didn't have morning sickness with either of my pregnancies. my kids are 2.5 and 9 mo; the second one i didn't even think about being pregnant, i would forget about it all the time. i think it's really normal, you're so much busier and much more active w a toddler you might even be a little nauseous once in a while but who has time to sit around and think about it? my good friend has a 28 mo old and is preegnant and was very sick the first time and has nothing going on this time. good luck and congratulations.

Every pregnancy is different. With my first child, I had morning sickness for 4 months. I'm 18 weeks pregnant now, and I had morning sickness for 3 months this time. Be thankful for now that you are not feeling like you want to die. Ugh. Good luck.

Good for your daughter 21 months and still breastfeeding!
I think it may be horomones...may people say their pregnancies are different with different genders..maybe this time you are having a boy.

Good morning,

Congrats! When I was pregnant with my son, I was never sick (this isn't to brag) only to share that all pregnancies have their own journey. You sound like you've done all the right things. Now that I think about it, a few of my friends who had boys had wonderful pregnancies with no morning sickness...coincidence perhaps...or maybe you're having a boy!

Good luck on your next visit!

I was sick for 11 weeks with my first, and not once with my second. Don't worry! Both are boys, by the way

Listen sister, be greatful for small favors! Every pregnancy is different so don't be worried and enjoy not feeling like you wanna puke!!!!

When I was pregnant with my son (1st chiild) I had no morning sickness at all. I think I felt a little nauseu for 1 week and that was it. With my daughter (2nd child) I had morning sickness for the whole 1st trimester. Each pregnancy is completely different then the last and just because you don't have it, doesn't mean you won't still get it. Or even better, you may not get it at all. Wouldn't that be nice. I've heard that your less likely to have it if you are having a boy (not as high a clash of hormones).

Count your blessings! Every pregnancy is different. Take care.

dont stress yourself about it. i never had morning sickness with my first or third. its one of the reasons with both of them I didnt realize I was pregnant until about the 10/12th week. enjoy not having it....and get ready for all the other stuff that comes along. have a wonderful journey the next 7.5 months

Hi Y.-
My first pregnancy I had morning sickness bad and my second,
I was not sick one day!!!
Every pregnancy is different.
Enjoy yout throw--up free days!!!

No two pregnancies are alike, even in the same woman. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had absolutely no morning sickness, no dizziness, no breast soreness...in fact, I had no idea I was pregnant until I started feeling extremely tired and my friend joked that I might be pregnant when I mentioned it to her. Never having been pregnant before, I didn't know how I was supposed to feel. So I bought a home pregnancy test thinking it was a waste of time and money...imagine the shock when two pink lines came up! I went on to have a healthy, uneventful pregnancy, labor and delivery and a beautiful healthy baby.

I had horrible morning sickness with my 1st born, hardly
noticible nausea with my second and now constant gas and indigestion with my current pregnancy. Every pregnancy is different, as unique as the child you are carrying. Throw a party while it last, for tomorrow you may be sick. Hope
all goes well.

Thank god (or who ever you believe in) every morning...you are one of the lucky ones!!

I don't know if this helps you at all, but I never had any morning sickness when I was pregnant with my son.
I do believe every pregnancy is VERY different.
I wouldn't be worried.
