does no nausea mean low hcg levels?

I'm concerned that i still don't feel nausea. I am 6 and a half weeks pregnant and have felt more tired, hungry, moody and cravings but no sickness or sore boobs! I am just concerned that as sickness is linked to rising hcg levels, whether lack of sickness would mean low levels. I really thought i would be sick with this as i have a very weak stomach generally and faint really easily so thought maybe i would quite sensitive to this.

any advice? x

Hi Jen, my preggie buddie :)
I haven't been sick either, I only occasionally feel a bit yuck on my way home from work some days when I'm tired and need my tea. The rest of the time I feel normal, especially when I wake up in the mornings! I do have sore boobs but I don't think I have any extra tiredness (at least I can't work out if I do as I am a 'tired' person anyway :snigger:).

I'm trying not to worry about not having sickness, we should think of ourselves as lucky as we don't have to go through that ... oh and there is plenty of time for it to start anyway :happy: x

Thanx Melissa.

heyya ros.. how did your scan go? I think im just over analysing everything. My sister was terribly sick with all 3 of her pregnancies so i guess i just kinda expected it. Also, these lack of symptoms make me feel not pregnant ...i keep peein on more sticks just to convince myself which is ridiculous. never thought i'd wish to be sick. lol xx

Oh Jen, you sound just like me! I'm still waiting for the real symptoms to kick in! I have hardly any symptoms and spent ages worrying about it but now I have just accepted that I'm one of the lucky ones! Try not to worry!

Hi Jen, I'd love to be sick too :snigger: I know exactly how you feel about not believing you're pregnant. I have done 7 sticks now but have to stop now. My scan was good thanks - I put all the info in my ICSI diary. They found one sac in the right place and there was at least one embryo in it - sometimes it looked like two so they are not sure. It was v early at 6wks1day so we didnt' hear a heartbeat but we did see it fluttering away - the cons said it probably only started the day before. I have to go back on the 22nd to see the heartbeat properly and to see if it is one or two babies in there! I'm really scared that something bad will have happened as I had a missed m/c around 8wks last time but I'm trying to be chilled out.

Can you ask again for an earlier scan rather than waiting till mid Nov?

Think I may be over analysing everything. I'm a natural worrier as it is and cant help but google everything! Many websites contradict themselves but i always cling onto the more negative comments. I think im looking for problems because i feel like i've queue jumped! DP had a fertility issue so i feel so so lucky to have conceived...i keep thinking to myself i cant be this lucky.

Ros, So so pleased everything went well. I bet you feel chuffed to bits. I took friday off as holiday as i thought i would go to the drs and i had a few other bits and pieces to do but by friday morning I thought, what exactly am i going to say to my dr. I am worried and have no real reason to be worried. I dont think they would do an earlier scan unless i was spotting or cramping or something. So i put it out of my mind on friday but a day later and im back to worrying. Think i might go Monday after work but i have no idea was to say is wrong. I just want morning sickness aghhhhh lol xx

It's so easy to feel negative but hold on to the fact that a lot of ladies don't get morning sickness! You said you were tired and hungry and that's exactly like I was - fingeers crossed for you!

Jen - during my pregnacny I never had morning-sickness - not even once. The only time I threw up during pregnancy was one day brushing my teeth I started to gag. TBH I couldn't brush my back teeth properly from second tri as it made me gag but I never felt nauseous, boob tenderness lasted only a few days and that was the end of that, tiredness I didn't even register as a PG symtom as I was working night duty during first tri and I am chronically tired due to hypothyroidism. Do you think I could believe I was PG?? Noooooooooo!!!!!
And my HCG levels were spot on - 105 at 4 weeks and 215 2 days later.
So no, lack of nausea in itself does not indicate low hcg - the only way to check hcg level is by blood test...

Jen with my 4th child I didnt even know I was pregnant til I was 4 months gone, and didn't feel sick or unwell or any pregnancy symptoms at all! Believe me, it can still kick in later though, so please don't assume that you have low HCG levels cos it's unlikely. Just think yourself super lucky for not feeling sick all the time!

Hi Jen

I didn't have sickness at all right through my pregnancy and my first tri was lacking in most symptoms. Feeling more tired is pretty much all I had - oh and the moodiness. Dh was convinced I was carrying the devil's spawn. Don't worry too much and try and enjoy your sickness free pregnancy.

JUst a note to say that the sickness and/or nausea can sometimes start at about 8 weeks too. wit this pregnancy although I had some nausea early on, it really kicked in at about 8 weeks and has only just left.

That's good to know Mrs Smiff. I am still concerned about not feeling sick yet. I have occasional early evening funny feelings for an hour or so but I wouldn't class it as sickness. Roll on next week so I can hit the 8wk sickness :)

Jen, I hope you're doing well x

Yes, really good to know. Every website i look at has said it should start at 5/6 weeks but in saying that my sister also says she didn't have it until 8 weeks but wasn't sure if she was just tryna make me feel better! I am feeling a little sick today though actually but not sure whether it's just in my head! Goin to the docs 2day. Hopefully he will put my mind at rest.

Ros, nearly 7 weeks! wahoo (roll on 12 weeks) xx

Ros - yay 7 weeks! I'm greedy today though and i want 8 weeks on my ticker ha. I went to the drs and i couldnt help but snigger when he repeated my problem back to me "so you're here because you dont feel sick?!?" HA the shame - He just reassured me that everything was going well. Chances are everything is fine so he has no reason to send me for a scan so i guess i gotta sit it out - 4 and 1/2 weeks to go :S seems like a lifetime! xx

I know what you mean Jen. I don't even feel pregnant other than big boobs! It's so hard to believe there is something going on in there!
I want 8 weeks too! x

Hi Jen,

I never had any sickness with ds 7 yrs ago but am feeling awful this time round.

I think you should enjoy it whilst you can, you could end up with sickness yet! I think mine started at about 8 weeks if I remember rightly.
