Its totally normal not to feel pregnant in the early stages.I didnt really start feeling pregnant until I was about 10-11 weeks.

Feeling fatigued definatley is one of the early symptoms tho,as your body is working extra hard to nuture and grow your little one.


Just enjoy being at the early stages and remember even tho you dont feel pregnant your body is doing some very amazing things right now! Very Happy

With my first one, I felt pregnant because I was so tired and sick. With this one, I only felt tired at work but I think it was work related as well. I didn't feel sick and my boobs didn't really hurt. I can completely relate. In a few weeks, though, when your pants become a little tight...you may start to feel more pregnant (or you may just start to feel big like me but each person is different).

Pretty soon, you may be writing to us saying, "I feel so pregnant - my belly is just huge!!" It will all be good and you will be basking in the pregnancy glow!! Also, feeling the baby move is by far the best part of pregnancy. If you don't feel pregnant until that time, it is definitely worth the wait!!

Hey, don't worry about it. I'm 14 weeks and even though I had 4 positive home pregnancy tests, two scans, still don't feel pregnant. I don't think its hit me yet, it will when I feel him/her kick. Very Happy

I too don't feel pregnant.
Hi, i am just guessing i am 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I have also done four pregnancy tests at home. But haven't had any blood test done to confirm it. I feel tired, but I am confused about this feeling of sickness, is it because i did not eat something that i like or something gone wrong in my tummy. I am so glad about these results of me being pregnant that i am also scared, again in a strange kind of way. Wishing you all a lovely pregnancy! Shalini

I have this same question as well. I only found out 5 days ago and im guessing im at most 4 weeks. I took 2 at home tests, both positive. I only thought to take them because i had felt..different, ya know? Aside from fatigue and tenderness etc i was just feeling slight bloating and mild cramps with out any spotting...I just felt off (if that makes any sense). But wthin 2 days after taking the tests i wasnt having that "off" feeling. This is only my first time around so am i worrying over nothing or could that be a bad sign?
