Couldn't find what you looking for?


If you are five weeks pregnant, the chances are that you are a week from the time you took a pregnancy test, and were overjoyed by those two lines. But where are your symptoms? You spent lots of time reading up about the many pregnancy symptoms while you were still trying to conceive. Why are you not feeling sick, tired, or dizzy? Does not having any pregnancy symptoms at five weeks gestation mean that there is some kind of problem? Are you even pregnant at all? It is easy to worry about a lack of symptoms, but if you had a positive pregnancy test, and especially if your pregnancy was confirmed by a doctor, you probably have nothing to worry about at all.

While a miscarriage can sometimes go hand in hand with an instant disappearance of pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness, it is normally indicated by other symptoms like bleeding and cramping. Are you five weeks pregnant and not having any symptoms at all? Enjoy it while you can, I say! The chances are that you will soon be hanging over the toilet, wishing that you still did not have any pregnancy symptoms. It is actually quite common for morning sickness and fatigue, as well as more frequent urination, to kick in around the sixth week of pregnancy.

Some lucky women will never have any unpleasant pregnancy symptoms. While this does not mean that you are not going to have a healthy baby, or that you are at risk of miscarriage, it is never wrong to contact your doctor or midwife if you are worried about your lack of symptoms. Sometimes, your healthcare provider will be able to put your mind at ease after a prenatal appointment. Other times, your intuition might be right, and you might be on the verge of a miscarriage. In either case, you will not regret having called your doctor or midwife.
