Second pregnancy...a little confused.

I took a test a week ago that came out positive.. aside from missing my period and cramping.. I'm not feeling sick,tired, going to the bathroom often. I knw each pregnancy is different, and I need to actually go in and get everything checked out - but again aside from that test saying I am I dont feel it and according to a pregnancy calculator I should be about 3 months and since this is the second I should be showing..again nothing. Is this normal?

  • Each pregnancy is different. I'm almost 3 months and you can't tell either. Congrats! I'm sure when you get your first U/S it will finally sink in mentally. I haven't had many symptoms either. Count your lucky stars your not sick as a dog.

  • Just like you said, every pregnancy and every woman is different! I was exactly like you with my first. No symptoms what so ever. With my second I was sicker than a dog. Count your blessings! Just go get a blood test to confirm your pregnancy and DON'T WORRY!

  • If you are concern then I would make an appointment with your ob or midwife. Good luck

  • everyone told me that the second pregnancy would be able to tell ALOT sooner than the 1st.. I didnt start showing til 6 months (on either pregnancy) and I am still small (8 months) so I am thinking that I will do the same as the 1st pregnancy and blow up the last month.. though this pregnancy has been completely different than the 1st with everything else...

  • I never felt pregnant with either one of my kids. I was very lucky in that department. I want to say I started showing earlier, but I don't remember just how early. I suggest relaxing and being happy that you don't have to suffer this time around :-) Once you get into the doctor, I am sure everything will be fine.
