What was normal for you?

I am currently about 11 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I haven't had many symptoms (fatigue mostly, slight nausea every few days, a little breast tenderness), and I am not showing at all yet. I'm probably just paranoid, but is there anyone out there who went through something similar?

I was the exact opposite, showed right away, vomited constantly, very tired and just overall felt horrible. My breasts weren't tender though! I know lots of women who didn't show and had very little symptoms. Consider yourself among the lucky.

I didn't really show with my first until I was 4 months, and fully dressed, it was probably about 5 months. I also had very few symptoms. I was a lot more tired, and my boobs were a bit larger, but that was about it.....until the heartburn hit at 5 months. That sucked. Really, what you are experiencing is perfectly normal - everyone is different.

Thanks for all your comments everyone. I'm sure things are fine, and I am glad that I don't have to worry about being sick all the time and all the other crazy things that can happen when you're pregnant. I have an appointment with my OB next week so hopefully she can reassure me that everything is normal and I can stop being paranoid and enjoy looking forward to this baby.

With all 4 of mine I didn't have that many symptoms, I'd count yourself blessed. It's more worrisome when you do have symptoms but very extreme. No symptoms are never bad news. Unless you're still getting periods, only because bleeding can mean other things.

Im 17 weeks and have only just popped a little. This is my third and if i didnt have have a scan everytime i see my doc id swear i wasn't pregnant. Don't stress, i think its normal. I haven't felt this one move yet either, when i felt the other two at 15 weeks constant. But everything seems to be fine said the doctor. Speak to yours if your stressed. X

I didn't show with my first until I was about 6 months, I'm tall with wide hips and she spent most of the pregnancy lying across so I just looked like I put on a little weight until she turned and then I popped out, I also had no nausea just a bit of heartburn. With my second I had nausea for the first 3 months and was showing at 4 months and now I'm 30 weeks into my last pregnancy and I've had 2 months of nausea, backaches, heartburn and leg cramps. I'm sure most women go through each pregnancy with different symptoms so I wouldn't be worried at all =)

I'm in my second pregnancy at 29 weeks and have had barley any symptoms with either. Just a few more headaches and backache like period pains.
