30% of women will have no nausea during pregnancy. Not having nausea during pregnancy is relatively normal. Studies about nausea during pregnancy have not been able to conclusively determine what exactly it is about pregnancy that can cause nausea. Some researchers suggest that the rapidly changing hormone levels in your body, combined with an enhanced sense of smell and excess stomach acids are to blame for nausea during pregnancy. Another theory suggests that the buildup of a specific hormone known as hCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which builds up during early pregnancy but starts to level off after about the 12th week of pregnancy, may be responsible for nausea during pregnancy. This would seem to perhaps be the strongest theory, as nausea during pregnancy levels off for many women after their first trimester. Nausea can be one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. While breast tenderness is often the first noticeable sign of pregnancy, nausea usually starts quickly after that. Nausea can begin as early as the second week of your pregnancy. Most of the time, nausea does not start until between the fourth and sixth weeks of pregnancy. This will typically be between five and seven weeks after the end of the last menstrual period. Nausea during pregnancy typically subsides between the 12th and 14th weeks of pregnancy. If you do not experience nausea during pregnancy, you are in the minority, but still within a normal percentage. Not having nausea during pregnancy should not be a major cause for concern. While some research has linked a lack of nausea to an increased rate of miscarriage, but there have been other studies that suggest the opposite. There is no conclusive research to suggest that a lack of morning sickness indicates any sort of problem with the pregnancy

ANSWEREarly pregnancy is one of those times when the 2 hormones namely Mrs Oestrogen and Mrs Prostegen are at their craziest and levels don't know which way to go. Sleepless nights are indeed a sign of pregnancy in women that suspect that they could be pregnant. Depends on other symptoms that can also be associated with pregnancy ie. nausea, tiredness, mood swings, tender breasts, excessive gas, bloatedness. Either that or it's just a bad case of insomnia.

This can be a sign of pregnancy.. Metallic breath can be an early sign.. Best to do a test to be sure though! good luck!

No. Although many people do feel very tired during early pregnancy (or at other stages during pregnancy) others do not feel this. This is fine, as symptoms vary from person to person and is not a sign that anything is wrong

I believe that's a good sign and hope so cause I too am early in my pregnancy and my urine is very yellow. I think it is a sign of cleaning your system of all toxins? and that's a good thing.

It isn't a bad sign, back pain is a normal symptom of pregnancy. Especially lower back pain, because the extra weight can be hard on the back.

No it looks normal but you should see your OB/GY immediately

A bad headache could be a sign of pregnancy depending on if you have other symptoms along with it. If you think your pregnant, that consult your doctor.

No. They are not bad during pregnancy.

A cramping stomach ache is a sign of pregnancy. But a constant, very bad pain may be something else and should be see by your doctor.

It's a sign of immaturity, lack of self confidence, and or lack of experience with men.

Nothing is certain but I would try not to worry. If you miscarry again you definitely need to get checked out as there may be some little thing preventing you carrying a pregnancy. Good Luck

Migraines are more often associated with menstruation than with pregnancy. However, the hormonal changes during pregnancy can bring about migraines, even to a woman who has never experienced migraines before. (This does not make it a sign of pregnancy, however, because it is very individual. Unless you've had a prior pregnancy where migraines factored in as one of the first signs, it is unwise leap to this conclusion.)

No. The typical signs of pregnancy are: missing a menstrual period; swollen, tender breasts; frequent urination; "morning" sickness, or the daily urge to vomit; and changes in appetite.

it could be, but it could also be a sign of stress or any number of other things, go and see your doctor to get checked out.

You cannot really tell until about two weeks later when you miss your period. Some women report experiencing some pregnancy signs such as tender breasts, nausea & bloating, but these symptoms are not a sure sign of pregnancy as they could be the flu or bad PMS symptoms. There are a couple of preg tests out on the market that can tell you if you are pregnant 7-10 days after you conceive, but most tests require 14 days which is when your period is due.
