Normal: each person's pregnancy symptoms are unique. It sounds like things are normal. you should be able to hear the heartbeat with the Doppler handheld at your next prenatal visit to reassure you

Lucky: Given the number of women who develop severe pregnancy symptoms in the first trimester I would think you should be thankful. You are in the lucky group. You don't need to fall asleep at night worrying about why. It doesn't mean anything bad. Eventually you will face some significant challenges. Get some good sleep while you can & prepare for more to come.
