I'm only 5 weeks, so other that getting tired earlier than normal, I'm not having symptoms. We're not telling anyone yet--we hope to not tell for as long as possible. I'm still having people come up and ask me how the last pregnancy is going. (seriously? I should be more than half way, don't you think I'd look pregnant if that one was going well??) If we lose this one, too, I don't want to have to deal with people asking me about the pregnancy several months later. Not to mention the fact that only one person was supportive at all last time.
So I don't have symptoms. I don't get to squeal about the baby with anyone. Not that I'd want to. Because right now I'm kind of just going with the "I'm not pregnant until I see it on ultrasound" attitude. I guess it's a defense mechanism; if I don't let myself get attached, it won't hurt as much?
And it's really depressing to be in this state of mind. Being pregnant, but not sharing, and not really believing that I'll get a baby out of it. I keep thinking about my first appointment in a month. And rather than think about seeing the baby on ultrasound I'm thinking about what questions to ask my doctor when she has to tell me yet again that the baby has died.

Three 10w losses (11/2010 + 8/2011 + 10/2014)
I am 4w3d and not feling it either... and also have no one to "share" it with. I am just trying to keep busy. Had my first apt today and second beta. I just want to crawl in bed for the next few weeks.

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
My main symptom at that time was just tired and cramps. I had TONS of cramps. Now the cramps have gone away and I get the occassional twinge or stretching of a muscle. I am pretty sure being tired is a good sign too.
Yup... being tired has been my strongest, most consistent symptom. Everything else seems to come and go. Hang in there! I hope that getting that ultrasound will let you start being excited. But I totally understand the detachment...
I only had sore bbs until 51/2 weeks, then the queasiness started. Now I'm 61/2 weeks and and very very nauseous. I've has friends who've sailed through pregnancies with very few symptoms. I know it's hard but try not to worry
I hope that bean is in there growing strong and that you either get lots of symptoms soon or that you've got one that is taking mercy on you for all you've been through. Even though I'm having twins I've had very few symptoms from the beginning. It was extremely unnerving. I hope this is your sticky bean!
