I was right there with you in the 2 T. Besides some pretty bad heartburn, a backache, and tiredness I felt like a million bucks. Zero other symptoms. And darn it I WISH my boobs would have grown, lol! As far as not feeling movement yet I think it's pretty normal for your first not to feel movement until later on. Oh yeah, and I'm 37 weeks now and so far so good :-). HTH!

Try not to worry, although I can understand it 100%. :) Some pg's are fantastic. I'd say you're one of the lucky ones, and you kind of are, but I know how the reassurances of feeling badly help the PAL brain. I don't know of anyone who felt their first move at 13 weeks. I think the ladies who have thought they felt it that early are on 3rd or more children. Each time you feel it sooner. I didn't feel my first until nearly 20 weeks. My bbs did not get that sore even in the 1T, and my Areolas have just gotten darker this week at 33 weeks. ((Hugs)) Try to think of it as a blessing that you're feeling so good. You still have the 3T to feel miserable. :)

It sounds like you're having a normal pg but that darn PAL brain is getting in the way. I still get that way and really don't think I'll feel at ease until the babies are in my armss.

The beginning of my pg was quite easy and I really didn't encounter anything until I was admitted to the hospital. Yes, I was exhausted, had heartburn and threw up a couple times during the 1T, but once I hit the 2T if was smooth sailing. My areolas didn't start darkening until well into the 2T and I honestly don't think my boobs have grown that much overall. Regarding movement, I felt the first kick at 19w2d and even then it wasn't consistent movement until a few weeks later. I think most of the people with early movement have had kids before or are confusing it with gas. ;-)

I think you're doing a fabulous job mama!

With my first baby I didn't have a single darn symptom- I was too young & naive to worry about that then lol. But it's perfectly normal!

And you are awfully early for movement. I'm just starting to feel flutters & this is the earliest ever but it's my 4th. With #3 I didn't feel much at all the entire time because her placenta was in front.. Also normal :)

YAY for hearing the HB- Focus on that, baby is GREAT!

Is this the first pregnancy you've had that progressed this far? If so, try not to worry, it's normal to feel really good in the 2T. I felt that way with my DD - no more m/s and suddenly I had my energy back! It was awesome. I had about 2 months or so where I felt so great and felt so *cute* in all my maternity clothes. No swelling, no fatigue, no m/s, no real symptoms, just my growing baby bump.

Lesley - I've more or less felt like the pregnancy is "too easy" the whole time so far . . . save the week + around 6-7 weeks where I was exhausted and needed midday naps as well as to to go bed really early at night.

I have felt the "lack of symptoms" this time around too. I had absolutely no morning sickness, no nausea, not much really that could be called symptoms. My boobs grew a bit and my belly popped out WAY early, but nothing else. Since then, I have developed killer heartburn and my boobs leak - but those are really the only symptoms still.

My doc said that I just may be one of the lucky ones this time around... hard to wrap my mind around the thought of "me" and "lucky" in the same sentence when referring to pregnancy.
