OK, I feel really dumb about this, but I'm worried that I'm not sicker! At 7.5 weeks I think I should really be feeling like a dog, but I'm not. I was really queasy over the weekend. Yesterday and this morning are almost OK. I'm not that tired right now either. I only had about 6 hours of sleep last night and I'm fine with it. I'm wondering if I should call the doctor, but I feel really dumb to say "I feel fine, can you see me??" I haven't had any spotting or unusual cramping. I am on a progesterone supplement, so I don't know if that might mask some other symptoms.

Will the pg ever get easier or am I doomed to be a worrywart for the next few months? *sigh* I need to get my tush in gear to get my oldest off to her second day of kindergarten.

It's normal to feel good...not everyone feels bad the first trimester... it's just the ones that feel like crap have more to complain about so you usually hear more about that than the ones who feel great.

I felt fine until 11 weeks... then from week 11-12 I felt like POO! I felt sooo crappy. I was also dead tired at that point. You may just get the first trimester POO feeling later too

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
On August 2, 2012 we lost Sarah at 17 weeks. Her pictures can be viewed at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahdarrohn
There is no known explanation for my losses.

I agree with Bobbie, I felt fine the first trimester, hardly any m/s, just very tired all the time, you might start feeling worse later.

Well I was one of the "lucky ones" and haven't thrown up once this pregnancy. And of course I was worried about that the whole time. I just wanted to puke. lol The things we want after a loss huh? With my first I didn't get sickness until closer to the second trimester like the others have mentioned. There was times when I didn't feel so good, but that didn't last too long. As long as you are getting other symptoms then you should be fine. For instance, the bb's getting more sore, increased cm, tired, hunger or loss of appetite. It seems like the symptoms just keep piling on one at a time. Or one will go away and a different one will appear. I don't think that you need to see the dr. for it, but as I always tell everyone, you know your body best and if you need the reassurance than go see your dr. Just be sure to let us know what you find out.
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.

I am going to share something with you that I think might make you feel better. With, Alex, my #2 pregnancy, I have never been more sick and pukey. Unfortunately, it ended in a mc. With this pregnancy, I didn't throw up once and for the most part - felt pretty good. Now, I am 24 weeks pregnant, so I don't believe in the morning sickness theory so much. And, yes, it does get easier but I still have my panicky moments.

I agree, not everyone feels bad. The only thing that gets me through not having any morning sickness is knowing that my mom had NO morning sickness with either of my brothers and only a bit of nausea with me.
