How early on in your pregnancy can you get morning sickness? Is it possible to get it before your first missed period?

I had morning sickness, queasy stomach and was pretty sure I was pregnant before I missed my period. It was less than a week before I was due to start. Not sure how common it is.

The scientific test is the coffee making you ill.

I never had huge problems but it did start early. So did the acid reflux, which is why I knew I was pregnant the second time. I NEVER had acid reflux except when I was pregnant. Hormone surges mess with everything.

Yes, I thought I had a stomach flu, and instead nine months later had a beautiful little boy.

For me it started with heartburn immediately and a "gassy" stomach before I even knew. I didn't get nauseous until I was about 6 weeks myself, but know many who were sick right from the start.

My morning sickness started right at the time my period should have started. That was a reliable indicator of pregnancy for me.

Thanks, we've been TTC so I'm thinking good thoughts. The past few days I've been not horribly nauseous. More of the nervous/anxious nauseous feeling during the day. Not wanting to eat much. Then in the evening I'm starving and can't get enough to eat. We'll see I guess.

I never had morning sickness, but until about 10 weeks I had absolutely no appetite and couldn't eat a thing. I was never nauseous, though.

It seems like it was right away... but only lasted the beginning months.. like the first three.

I had some food aversions (poultry, blech) but no real morning sickness with either pregnancy. however, the only time I've ever had heartburn was when I was pg. with my second pregnancy, I got heartburn about 4 or 5 days before my period was due and I knew I was pg. I tested the next day and got a positive (yes, it was early to test, I did FMU with First response, and ended up with twins, so all stars were aligned. lol).

good luck!

I was nauseated within the first week. That makes for a long pregnancy!! I never actually got sick except one time though. Felt very tired for 3 months.

Honestly, I don't know. I'm one of the lucky few who didn't really have any morning sickness at all, which is why it took us almost 3 mos to figure out we were pregnant. :blush:

How early on in your pregnancy can you get morning sickness? Is it possible to get it before your first missed period?

With my second pregnancy, and before I missed my period, I started getting nauseous from the scent of my shampoo in the morning. The next day all "smells" (deordorant, parfume, etc.) started to bother me and made me want to barf.

I thought I was getting the flu. But then a lightbulb went off and I ran out and got a pregnancy test and sure enough, it was +.

I knew within 3 days. I tried to drink a glass of OJ and it came RIGHT back up. I was sick for the entire nine months. Couldn't eat anything. Definatly made the choice no more for me. (we had already decided that though!) BUt DD made up for the sickness, she slept through the night the 1st day and kept it up.

Good Luck

Yup, me too. And the puking only ended after birth.

I started carrying a big tupperware bowl with me everywhere I went within days of conception of both of my girls. I never thought I'd do it again after the first one, but I thought for sure that was a fluke. I was wrong and have now logged about 18 mos. of daily puking. I don't plan on doing it again, but I have to say it was well worth it.

All of my friends told me that early sickness means girl. I didn't really buy it but I do have 2 girls, so maybe there is something to it.

Good luck to you!!!!!

I started two days after finding out, I had ALL day "morning" sickness, went on for the first 4 months, and sometimes during the night too. When that went away, had 1 feeling good month then the heartburn started and didn't go away until the minute DD was born......I was eating tums during labor.

First baby- sore chest before missed period. Horrible morning sickness from about 3 weeks -5 months.

Second baby- First sign of pregnancy was major diarrhea on the day I should have had my period. Then 4 months of throwing up a minimum of 6 times a day.

Third baby- queasy about 3 days after conception until 5 months.

Good Luck to you!!! My fingers are crossed and sending some magic:wizard:

I thought I had the flu, was sick for a week, was fine for a week and then got sick again. Thats when I took the test. I had morning, noon and night sickness for 16 weeks and actually lost about 15 pounds. Water made me sick. It wasn't pretty. Thats why I have a one and only!

I always knew I was pregnant when I couldn't walk through the meat dept. at the grocery without feeling the need to gag.

I started right around 3 weeks after conception. I find it weird how many people were getting sick within days of conception-- it takes longer than 2-3 days for there to be enough hormone in even your blood to get an accurate blood pregnancy test-- I wonder why that is- if people have symptoms from the next day forward?????

Absolutely! Three days of lingering nausea prompted me to take the test. I knew before I had even missed my period.

Nah, I had hyperemesis both times, and I have a boy and a girl. Made no difference for me.

I think that hormone thing varies a lot from person to person. I have a friend who's pg test came up neg with both of her pregnancies till she was 3 mos. along. I took mine within a week of conceiving and my lines was BLACK! Some people get a lot more hormone action than others. My doc always tried to put a good spin on it and tell me that it was a sign of a strong pregnancy! Younger women are more likely to get sick and less likely to miscarry in general because the younger they are the more hormones you have.

I didn't start feeling ill til I was 8w - my doc said that was when the hormones really started kicking in. but I knew I was pg the day I missed my period because I was constipated and had those stretchy feelings in my stomach.

I would think if you are nauseous from pg, you should be able to test and get a reading. So go test and let us know!

I was nauseous from when I should have started my period with DS#1 and was sick for 19 weeks.

DD#2 I was sick from about 5 weeks until 16 weeks

DD#3 I was sick from when I should have started until about 16 weeks.

I'm 9 weeks pregnant today and I have been nauseous for the past 3 weeks. Yesterday was the first day I lost my breakfast, though. (Sorry, I know, TMI :sick: ).

Good luck!!! I hope you get a positive result. Let us know.

Never had morning sickness with either DS, however my chest felt like it was on fire. That was always my first sign. I knew right away.
