Asked by Kassandra1995

Q: Should I be worried about the little to no symptoms within my first 5 weeks of pregnancy?

I just found out I was pregnant not too long ago, but I haven't had many symptoms. I've only experienced terrible headaches and occasional nausea. Should I be worried? I don't want me overthinking this to effect my happiness.

Hi, all. congratulation for your pregnancy, it's a wonderful news ever. The first trimester of pregnancy starts without any signs that you're pregnant. It ends with a body that's adjusted to carrying a child. Noticeable symptoms won't start until the fourth week. This is when a woman can expect to miss her period and may experience mild cramping and blood spots. The early symptoms of pregnancy often mimic the symptoms you might experience right before and during menstruation, you may not realize you're pregnant. You may know that is undefined that these symptoms are uncommon. You should know that these symptoms may be caused by other things besides being pregnant. So the fact that you notice some of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. The only way to tell for sure is with a pregnancy test.

Congratulations! I would not worry and be grateful! I had one pregnancy with mild symptoms, one with practically no symptoms, and this one I have been sicker than I could possibly imagine.

Don't worry unless you start to have severe cramping or start bleeding. Otherwise, just enjoy your low-symptom pregnancy! I know how easy it is to worry, but it doesn't do any good.

Again, congratulations!

Congratulations!just sit back and take it all in. every pregnancy is different, you might find that even your next pregnancy would differ from this. No two pregnancies are ever alike. In fact I would say that you just need to enjoy the symptom free period. Honestly, when they do come, it can take some energy out of you. Having said that, i have always felt that being pregnant need not at all be stressful or panicky as some new moms tend to be; it is rather a joyous experience with something different happening ever so frequently you know? That is what you need to focus on and look forward to all the different things you get to experience through this amazing journey. On the other hand you can wait for 6-8 weeks for any symptoms to surface, post that you still need not worry, but maybe consult with your doctor and monitor all your levels and especially HCG constantly. Happy health to you!

Hi and congratulations! I too just found out I am pregnant after 4 years of TTC i just found out yesterday, I decided to test because I was having constant heart burn but I really thought it was just spicy food I ate or something but I just had this voice in my ear telling me to get up early and test, Expected to see a negative but was really surprised to see a strong positive, especially since I was only about 4 days late, which isn't uncommon at all with me, I can honestly say that looking back now I actually was getting chills I thought the a/c was too low but realized I was constantly cold as soon as I would stand up or move around, my boobs are a little sore, and I had nausea that has gone away pretty much, I have been trying not to worry about it too much since it is early on in the pregnancy and I haven't had much symptoms but I've also read that symptoms can come and go due to fluctuations in hormones, Prayers

Hello Kassandra,
Congratulations! Starting with the foremost thing to say, which is, every women has entirely unique exoerience through out her pregnancy duration. No two women are said to have had similar experiences. Every women has different endurance, and more or less different situation within her body, inside. So it will be very unfair to say that it is common. It might be common, but different with every women. Having said that, some women can be slow with showing their symptoms, and growing a big belly bump. Reason being their baby can be under weight. I would advice you to keep your HCG under check, constantly.

I haven't had any symptoms with my pregnancy with my daughter ( 2015) and the same this time around. I wouldn't worry about it since you could be one of few who have little or no symptoms or signs at all. Enjoy the pregnancy!

I don't think so :)

Most symptoms dont show up until 6-8 week of pregnancy. That being said, every women's experience is unqiue. Relax, enjoy it while you are symptom free :)

Personally, I didn't get symptons until 6 weeks.
