No symptoms at 6 weeks

Dear Dr Amy,

I am 39 years old and have a 7 year old son. The first day of my last period was September 6, 2005. I have taken 4 home pregnancy tests and all were positive. This puts me at 6 plus weeks pregnant. My problem is that missed periods and tender breasts are my only symptoms. When does the uterus start to grow where I will feel it? About two weeks ago I experienced some light pink watery discharge after sexual intercourse. Could this be a problem?

Thank you so much.

Dear Kathy,

Every pregnancy is different, and the lack of symptoms this time does not necessarily mean anything. At this point, the baby is about 1/4 inch long so it is not surprising that you cannot notice your uterus growing. Some women do not begin to show until after the first trimester. The discharge you had two weeks ago does not sound significant since it went away by itself.
