11 weeks pregnant - How am I supposed to feel

I am 11 weeks 1 day pregnant. I have occasional very mild morning sickness and my boobs only hurt a little when pinched. I have visible veins on my upper thighs, stomach, chest, and arms. I pee a lot especially when I drink water. My stomach has a small pooch in the morning and gets really big and bloated at night. I am 5'2 and weighed 111 when I got pregnant. I have gained four pounds. I had a missed miscarriage in Feb. I had an ultrasound and heard the heartbeat twice last Monday. It was 178 bmp. This is my first pregnancy and I don't know if what I'm feeling/not feeling is normal. I don't want to lose this baby too. Should I be feeling more in my stomach. Sometimes I feel pressure and pulling, but only now and then.

  • This is all normal to a point.
    Every Woman has it differently.
    If you are scared or need medical attention please go to your doctor or medical clinic.

  • Every pregnancy is different. Try to relax. With one baby I had terrible morning sickness, with one hardly any, with another none at all. Early in your pregnancy if you don't have much morning sickness, you may not have any other symptoms. Some people go through the whole pregnancy with very little other than eventually feeling their baby move and their belly growing, others have all kinds of symptoms.

    I understand your fears after your miscarriage, been there, but do your best to relax and just enjoy this pregnancy. Generally what you're feeling.....or not feeling is normal!!

    Best wishes.

  • What you are feeling is pretty normal. Being that this will be your first you won't actually feel baby until you are between 16 - 22 weeks along sometime sooner sometimes later. Wishing you a healthy pregnancy!

  • Every pregnancy is different. But it is completely normal to "not feel pregnant" right now. Regular movements are not expected until around 24-28 weeks.. Until then, your baby is too small to really feel anything.
