So I am 9 weeks pregnant...after a year of trying.  I am a little concerned because I am having almost no symptoms. I am a little more tired than usual and my breasts are a little tender and swollen. However, I am usually tired from some my anti-anxiety medication that I take and I have fibrocystic breasts so they are usually tender. 

I have no morning sickness, no mood swings, no cravings, etc.  I worry because I do not feel pregnant. I know some women would see this as a blessing. However, I am worry because I feel perfectly normal and I know pregnancy is a time for change.

Maybe I am making a mountain out of a mole hill.  My first prenatal appointment is on Friday and I am hoping she can quiet some of my fears and worries.  I just wanted to get some of this off my chest. My husband is just happy that I am doing so well with my pregnancy and my mom tells me that she doesn't remember this stuff from her pregnancies. My mother in-law doesn't want to discuss this stuff with me, although she is happy for us.  I don't know. Just feeling stressed out and no one to talk to. Oh, well. :)

I never had morning sickness or mood swings or cravings! Everyone experiences pregnancy differently. We've been led to believe that there is a "right" way to be pregnant by TV and movies, but you need to remember that each woman experiences pregnancy individually.

Dont freak out. I was the same way for the first couple months of my pregnancy. I never had morning sickness, my boobs were sore but thats the only symptom i had. No weird cravings, i never got weird craving really....  Ur gonna be worried till ur baby is here, then ur gonna be worried the rest of ur life for their safety. lol It will never end. Congrats on the pregnancy. Good luck at ur appt. But dnt stress urself too much. Just try not to think of the bad.

Honestly, I had so few symptoms that I didn't even know until I was 19 weeks along, then, I only got a little belly and felt him move occasionally. LOL He was born right on time and average sized and perfectly healthy.

Thanks for the reassurance ladies. My appointment is tomorrow. I am hoping and praying that everything goes smoothly and they can find the heartbeat and see the baby. I know that they may not find the heartbeat this early and I am okay with that.
