Can you be preganat without showing the typical symptoms? The only typical symptom I have is nausea, my breast were tender for a week or so, and they have swollen a little, however I gained 5 pounds, my appetite has increased, and my boyfriend says that I have a baby bump.

The simple answer is yes..My first symptom was increased appetite..I found myself eating an entire 5 pack of bagels and cream cheese every day..Um..yikes..I don't even eat bagels..So I started to suspect..I would take a test..that way you'll know..if its negative..wait a week and test again..My first one was negative and Im currently 7 months pregnant..LOL

Definitely. WIth my first, the only symptom I had in the beginning was the missed period. No morning sickness, bloating, tender breasts, or anything else. I honestly thought the missed periods were do to some other things going on in my life at that time (major diet change, stress, and more).

Have you missed a period yet? Do you keep track of your cycles? If you haven't missed a period, you may want to wait to see if it comes or not, but some women still have their period, so that isn't always a definite that you aren't pregnant. Let us know if you decide to test. Good luck!

I have not missed my period yet, however my last one was spotty. As for tracking my cycle I have tried but I have irregular cycle. I have a strong feeling that I am. So I have to make a doctors.
