    Technically I was both.  I was starving and if I didn’t eat constantly I would throw up.  But nothing sounded very good either.

    I also had both.  I was ravenous for the first few weeks, then I was queasy if I waited too long to eat.  I didn’t really have any specific cravings, but there were certain foods (basically cheese & carbs) that I could eat in mass quanitities without feeling sick.  It was very odd to be nauseated & starving at the same time :/

    Neither at the point that was too early to test.  I didnt start to get sick until 6 weeks pregnant which was well after the positive test result days before my first missed period.

    My nausea didn’t start until I was 6 weeks pregnant. Even then it was just mild nausea and ive only thrown up twice so far (knock on wood!). From weeks 6-10, I had zero appetite and nothing sounded good at all. I am now almost 13 weeks and hungry almost all the time.

    I had neither, never had morning sickness nor was I hungry at all. Only way I knew was pregnant was the missing monthly thing.

    5 weeks here and I am experiencing both. Nausea comes in every 2 hours if I don’t eat. I’ll be huge by the end!

    If you haven’t missed your period yet, those aren’t “pregnancy” symptoms, those are progesterone sypmtoms.  They can be stronger or not as intense each month depending on the size of the corpus luteum that is producing progesterone.  If you are too early to test, it is too early to be having pregnancy symptoms.  If you read this page, there is a ton of good info in there.

    I am a little over 5 weeks now and barely have some queasiness, it is definitely worse if I don’t eat all day, though.  On the cycles I SWORE I was pregnant because of early symptoms, I ended up getting my period, and on the cycle I swore I wasn’t pregnant because I did not have any symptoms, I got my positive test.

    @DaneLady:  I was exactly the same way – I didn’t have much actual vomiting but I was starving and would get super nauseous if I didn’t eat quickly enough – so weird.  I also only had a few foods that at all seemed appetizing so it was tough to make myself eat so often.  14.5 weeks and I am just starting to think some of the food aversions are lessening – I hope!

    Ah. I didn’t read carefully the post.  I didn’t get nauseous until 6 weeks but actually the two days before my bfp I was ravenously hungry.  To the point that my husband was freaked out.  And I got my bfp at 10dpo.

    I had some nausea from about 6 – 9 weeks, but otherwise I was definitely very hungry!

    My morning sickness started at ~6weeks, so not for about 2 weeks after my positive test. Before then, my only symptoms were sore boobs and a “feeling” that I was pregnant. The sickness lasted until about 15 weeks.

    @travellingfool:  ME TOO.  It’s disgusting, isn’t it.  Only saving grace is mine didn’t kick in until about 9.5 weeks.
