5 weeks pregnant...but I don't feel it. Normal?

I am 5 weeks pregnant my boobs hurt on and off but other then that I'm not bloated or anything. I do get hungrier more frequent but that's about it. I have one 17 month old daughter and I also had a miscarriage in December and that's all i can think about. Have any of you gone threw a pregnancy not feeling a bit pregnant and everything be okay?

With my first pregnancy I didn't know I was pregnant until 8 weeks. Yes I felt tired but really didn't focus on it. My baby is perfect, no problems!!

Didn't hit me until 6 weeks when hyperemesis made her way into my life. After that I felt ill my whole pregnancy. I think it just hits everyone at different times.

Symptoms don't typically kick in until between 6-8 weeks when hormone levels have gotten high enough.  Completely normal to not feel it at 5 weeks.  Some women don't feel pregnant until much further along.

Thank you this is comforting. I think I am driving my husband nuts by telling him i'm nervous because I don't feel pregnant. I'm just terrified of having another miscarriage.

Totally normal! I'm 18 weeks and I don't feel pregnant a lot of times. I have to remind myself or if I get a sharp sciatic pain I'm reminded. I think once I feel them move it'll be more real!

I had a miscarriage in August.. it was my first pregnancy so like you I was very nervous this time around and thought for sure things were wrong.. I had a breakdown at my 8 week appointment because I had hardly no symptoms just fatigue and off and on boob soreness... I went like a week and half around 6.5 weeks where I felt like nothing at all...  turns out my HCg was 169,169 (so i must have just been good with the hormones?)

At 8 1/2 weeks, i got hit pretty bad... not super bad but i puked daily until 11 weeks and things started to ease up...  I am still puking off and on... Still exhausted but the puking has been 2-3 times a week since then...  Im 14 weeks now..

as for boob pain, this pregnancy it has honestly came and gone sometimes going away for days at a time...  I saw my baby yesterday and things were active as can be.. but i can ensure you i really had almost no symptoms until 8 1/2 weeks and was freaked.

I started having symptoms at 6 weeks.  But don't worry.  I've heard of plenty of women who don't have any symptoms at all throughout their whole pregnancy!  Congratulations and H&H9!

Hey : ) this is my first pregnancy and I'm pretty nervous myself but super excited! I'm in the same place as you are my boobs are a bit sore and feeling fuller but otherwise fine.  I do notice I'm pretty hungry most of the time.  But other than thay I feel completly normal.  From what I've learned its completly normal but of course were still going to be nervous!  I'm trying my best to just take it day by day, and have faith that everything is going to be okay! : ) I guess were kinda lucky it hasn't hit us yet! Let's see what the next few weeks bring! Lol good luck dear! :-D

I did not feel pregnant at all the whole first trimester - no sore boobs, no nausea, just a little increased tiredness starting around 10 wks. I was super worried the whole time because of 3 previous miscarriages, but I am 17 weeks now and everything is going well. I have talked to a couple of other women who also had no symptoms and had totally normal pregnancies. Try not to worry. Good luck!

I just want to say be patient! LOL  Im 8 weeks & at 5 I was thinking the same thing having suffered 3 miscarriages. At 5w5d morning sickness hit me hard & stays with me all day & night. While I love the blessing I pray that 12 weeks will get here quickly & I can feel somewhat normal again. Blessings to all of you!
