*Note- I am not a dr, the only medical experience I have is of my own experiences, so this is just from personal observations and what I've read in pregnancy books*

Symptoms vary from person to person... I never had a minute of morning sickness and didn't start having tender breasts until the second trimester. My only early symptoms were that my stomach felt bloated, and I was eating everything in sight, and then in my second and third month I got completely exhausted whereas that first month I felt better than I had in months... one of my other friends however, is still able to go out at night and work during the day with only normal sleep at night (not much for college students lol) and a 1-2 hr nap before or after work depending on her schedule, has had killer MS, and has had the tender breasts since the da she got pregnant...
I would assume that at 8 weeks it's perfectly okay to not be having very many symptoms... If you're really concerned then of course bring it up at your OB visit! but for the time being I would say just relax (stress is a big no-no), and make sure you're eating those extra 500 calories a day and taking your vitamins and everything and you should be fine until then... Also, remember that, while exercising in pregnancy is good, there are some things you need to be more careful about... Check out the Fitness & Nutrition page here on iVillage, it's currently mostly about nutrition (the articles change every so often...) but I also posted a link for an article on exercise:

Like I said, probably nothing to worry about since everyone reacts to pregnancy differently but if you are really concerned, then your OB should be able to clear everything up for you... Hope this helps a little...

Yep, I was sort of in the same boat. I had very little m/s at first, and it sounds dumb, but I was feeling kind of left out. I'm just over 13 weeks now, and I still don't feel pregnant. LOL Don't worry, everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. Try not to worry too much! :)
