Well you have bloating right? that means everything is starting and in a few weeks you will wish thats all you had lol. Its normal to not really feel pregnant at 5w so try not to worry, I'm sure everything is fine and babe is getting nice n snug in there.



I hate this part of pregnancy lol. Can't wait til he's moving everyday and I KNOW he's okay in there. I'm such a worry wart :P

Quoting Mrs. Sherwood *15Weeks*:

I felt the same way between 4 and 7 weeks, when my symptoms really started. Most people don't really get the major symptoms til a little later in the pregnancy. Mid Happy I'm sure in a few weeks you'll start to feel more, the HCG just hasn't had time to really build up yet. 



It's just so different from last time!

This is my first pregnancy, but I scared myself to death worrying that something was wrong between weeks 4-7, when I had no symptoms. Then when they started at 7 weeks, I was actually happy that I had morning sickness. I'm glad that it's mostly gone now, but it was definitely reassuring when I finally had tangible evidence of the pregnancy, so I totally get it! Try not to worry too much! :)

I'm 30 weeks with my second & the only symptom I've felt it fatigue which started at around 17 weeks or so. Most days I don't even feel pregnant, compared to having HG with my first it's been totally different

I'm with ya on this. I am 5 weeks and the only symptom I've had really is heartburn.  Maybe a little cramping and fatigue. With my daughter though, at this point I couldn't stay awake and I was sick the entire time! Makes me a little nervous.

I remember I started getting morning sickness the moment 6 weeks hit. Before that, I was tired, and sore breasts, and cramping.

I'm still mega early, so I'm not really worried, but I was feeling symptoms mega early with DS. This time, I'm almost 5 weeks and haven't really had much.. I've been nauseous a few times, and that's about it. And I'm bloated AF and have bad gas, but nothing like my first pregnancy. It's weird! So when did you start feeling symptoms and what were they? 


I started vomiting at about 6 weeks... I literally threw up every day... Every. Single. Day. my entire pregnancy.
When I was in labor, I even threw up. 
The fatigue, and heart burn started at 10 weeks.
