I'm 6 weeks pregnant, and nearly every post i read says that morning sickness and other pregnancy symptoms start around this point of the pregnancy. This is my first pregnancy, so obviously i am worrying when i read whats suppose to happen and whats actually happening. I do have slightly tender breasts (which i know is one symptom) but thats it.. Is this happening to anyone else? am i just lucky that morning sickness hasn't started yet?

Everybody has different symptoms or none at all so I wouldn't worry, the only symptom I had was tender breasts at first but morning sickness kicked in a few weeks ago and I am 9 weeks tomorrow. Some of my friends had no sickness or any other symptoms at all so try not to be concerned.

Symptoms vary so much. This pregnancy (I'm 20 weeks Fri) has been so very different from last 2. No sickness before but had 2 healthy babies. This time I'm certainly making up for it! I still get sick now around 3 nights a week! Whereas I'd previously had all day nausea from around 7 weeks to 10 weeks.
I think on most info sites/books, they talk about nausea/sickness being a 'sign of a healthy pregnancy ' which leaves non-sick mums in a state of worry. And at 6 weeks it seems such a long stretch until the reassurance of the 12 week scan. The other worry Is when symptoms come and go! You start wishing the sickness would go but when it does you panic, Google it feel kind've ok then it then comes back with a vengeance and you wish for a 'good' day!
I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy x

I've had no morning sickness and just counted myself lucky and my baby being kind to me. Only symptoms I had at beginning was tender nipples,a few nose bleeds, extreme fatigue and sense of smell,they all came and went by the 12 week scan
I'm now 23+4 and everything going great. It's fine barely having any symptoms,it's when they suddenly go before 12 weeks that's it's a thing to worry about xx
