How common is it to NOT have ANY symptoms of pregnancy?

I had to go to the E.R. a week ago, because of tonsillitis, I could barely breathe or swallow. After they ran their urine and blood tests, they came back and said I was pregnant. I thought surely they had messed up because I hadn't even had one symptom, and I didn't expect to be pregnant, because I never have had a regular cycle (usually about 3-6 months between periods). With the HCG levels they gave me, I'd be about 6-7 wks now. I went to an OB last week, and they also said I'm pregnant. But I haven't had ANY symptoms. 2 wks ago I was a tadbit moody but I blame that on stress, and my boobs like BARELY hurt, but that's just if I push in on them.

With my daughter, I had EVERY frikkin' symptom in the book, nauseated and breaking out about as soon as I conceived, my boobs turned into boulders 2 wks before I found out, I mean I had EVERYTHING.

Is this normal? Do you think my body just remembers what to do? Is this normal?

  • Both mine were symptom free pretty much. If it wasn't for a missed period I would have known I was pregnant. I did get back aches and heavy breast later on but that's about it.

  • Ask them to do an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy.

  • I have an ultrasound in 2 1/2 wks, but I'm just so anxious for that time to pass. I don't think I'm actually going to BELIEVE I'm pregnant until then :/

  • i guess some can. have you seen i didn't know i was pregnant??

  • The only reason I knew I was pregnant this time was because I was late. I am usually on time every month so it was a dead giveaway. truthfully i just had my first bout of morning sickness this morning.

  • Yeah I've seen a few episodes of I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant, most of them did have symptoms and just didn't realize it lol. I actually thought about that show when I found out.

  • I didn't know until 19 weeks along...I had skipped 3 months before, but, never 4. So, I tested and I was pregnant. I had no more symptoms except finally, my stomach grew and he moved. ALL the way till I had contractions and had symptoms really.
