do u ever not feel pregnant?

I am about 6 weeks pregnant and lately I havent really been feeling pregnant and I'm scared that this is a symptom for miscarriage. I havent' had bleeding or anything. My sister went for her ultrasound at 8 weeks and her baby measured at 5 weeks. I'm just scared this is going to happen to me. Has anyone felt like this and it was normal or should I be concerned?

  • At six weeks, I think LOTS of women don't feel pregnant! :)

  • Its a weird knowing you are pregnant but not feel it. I did not feel pregnant until I had the belly and could feel the baby. For the first few weeks-- I was on pins and needles wondering if something could have happened.

  • I didn't know I was pregnant at all until seven weeks, so you have a one-up on me already haha =] It's perfectly normal to not feel pregnant all the time. It's still a new thing for you, and your body hasn't made any huge changes yet. You still have a LONG way to go, don't'll start to feel pregnant once morning sickness kicks in and your belly starts to grow :D

  • I didnt feel pregnant ealry in the pregnancy like you...I think it lasted for me until about 12 weeks. When you get to be about 27 weeks like me, you feel pregnant. Just hang in there.

  • Enjoy the early days when you dont "feel" pregnant. I had morning sickness and woke up one day without it. It was back the next day... Enjoy.

  • When I WASN'T throwing up or having awful heart burn, sometimes I'd wake up when I was in the first trimester and feel completely normal and not even pregnant. I'm 32 weeks now and I still have that on occasion where she's not moving and I'm actually feeling decent and kind of feel like I did before I was pregnant. We rented a heart doppler monitor though because I had a miscarriage before this pregnancy and so on days when she was quiet I would just check her real quick and feel good afterwards...I think you have to wait until you are a certain amount of weeks along though before renting one!
