I am 13 weeks pregnant. Not once have I had morning sickness. Is something wrong or am I just lucky? I had morning sickness early with my other 2 pregnancies.

I didn't have any of the "typical" side effects of pregnancy... so I don't think it's as abnormal as one might think... like the news these days... we always just hear about the bad stuff

You are just lucky! I didn't get sick once when I was pregnant with my son! The doctor said that it is completely fine and healthy not to!

I would call you lucky. I never had morning sickness with my daughter. The only time I was sick was when i had forgotten to take my prenatal and that always happened around 10 at night. Just enjoy the smoother ride :)

Don't worry! Every pregnancy is different. Be thankful you're not puking your gutts out every morning. LOL ! I've worked in radiology for 9 years, have 2 children, researched "normal" gestation symptoms, and have spoken to many OBGYNs and you have nothing to worry about. You know your body and if something feels abnormal just contact your physician. Good luck

I didn't get morning, afternoon, or night sickness the whole time I was pregnant with my baby boy, however I did have food aversions where I would get nauseous at the thought, sight, or smell of certain foods. I did once throw up in my third trimester because he kicked me really really hard and I had eaten a little too much for dinner, lol!

i'd say youre just lucky! but also it may just kick in later on in your pregnancy.some girls NEVER have todeal w/ morning sickness! my sister in law didnt w/ her 1st one but this time around shes sick as a dog! but thats just karma coming around for her laughing at me for having it the full time when i was pregnant.

I really had no morning sickness either. Sometimes when I took my prenatals without eating a banana or something I would feel sick, but other than that, I don't recall any.

You are in the 25% of women who don't get morning sickness. Just be thankful and enjoy it. I had morning sickness my entire pregnancy. Bad enough where I went to the hospital 2 times. I had to be on medication throughout so that I could at least eat and drink.

I guess it is pretty normal because I didn't get morning sickness at all I didn't even feel prego majority of the time, the one thing that I had was that I was hot ALL the time other than that it was perfect.

you are very fortunate to not have morning sickness. I have 2 girls and I had it with both children and they are healthy children and both pregnancies were healthy as well. I heard (but not sure if it's true) that morning sickness is healthy for the baby while pregnant. I also had heartburn during both pregnancies didn't realize what it was until after the first one (both girls had hair at birth). But like they say every pregnacy is different. Enjoy your pregnancy!

dont count your chickens before they hatch... i dont think theres anything wrong, i had three children and very little morning sickness.

[deleted account]

I never had morning sickness either!! I didn't have food cravings, mood swings, or the swelling. The only thing I ever had was heartburn. Consider yourself in the "lucky circle!!"

I never had it either. Well...I did once and it was because I was so tired the night before that I went straight to bed and didn't eat dinner. I woke up so hungry that I was nautious and got sick. Once I ate I was fine though. I think some get it and some don't and just be happy you are one of the lucky ones.. Don't tell that to anybody who gets it bad though...haha

My daughter is 7 months old. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I just prayed to God and just spoke into existance that "I WILL NOT GET MORNING SICKNESS" Dear Lord, please don't have me get any morning sickness. And guess what... i had NO MORNING sickness! Maybe 1 or 2 mornings because I didn't eat for a few hours after I woke up but otherwise... none! It's totally normal! And a compete blessing!

I'm not sure, I didn't have morning sickness I got sick after dinner every night for 2 months. It is different with everyone.

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I threw up once in the morning, and I am convinced it wasnt morning sickness it was just the combination of two very weird cravings....cottage cheese and apple juice. But once I got sick I was fine...and my daughter will be three at the end of November and she is perfectly fine.



My opinion is that you are just lucky this time around

You're just lucky. It varies from person to person/pregnancy to pregnancy. My mom had it for 4 months with me and my brother, but not at all with my other brother. I had it all 9 months with my daughter.

I had none of the "normal" pregnancy symptoms. I had a huge stummach but other than that you could hardly tell I was pregnant. I had a little heartburn towards the end but that was very mild.

Whatever symptoms you have or do not have is just normal for you, and each pregnancy is completely different no matter how many kids you have. I didn't have morning sickness I got sick at night if I wasn't in bed by a certain time. If I was I slept through any sickness that I had. The whole time I was pregnant I only actually vomited 2 or 3 times.



But if you're not getting sick and not having mood swings I would consider yourself just lucky.
