    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.

    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:

    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.
