I’m 5 weeks pregnant, but I don’t have sickness or any other symptoms. Is that normal?


The most common symptoms associated with early pregnancy are food aversions, food cravings, nausea with or without vomiting, breast tenderness, fatigue, and feeling like you have to go pee all the time. These are things that women commonly feel, especially in the 1st trimester, but not until at least 5 to 6 weeks gestation, and this is 5 to 6 weeks after your last period. All of these symptoms are caused by rising hormone levels and hormone changes that are happening in your body, and those changes or levels aren't high enough for you to feel their effects until about 5 to 6 weeks. Research has shown that 90% of women are feeling nausea with or without vomiting by about 8 weeks, and so if you're still feeling pretty good around 5 to 6 weeks, then just appreciate that time while it lasts, because chances are, down the road you will start to get sick. If you have specific concerns about your pregnancy, especially if you're cramping or bleeding, call your OB provider. After asking you more specific questions, they'll decide if further investigation is necessary.
