Uusally if it is morning sickness there will be a BFP. This is because most morning sickness is caused by rising levels of the prengancy hormone that pregnancy tests test for! Uusually if there is enough hormone to cause sickness, there is enough hormone to show up on the test.

So my guess would be no, but there are always exceptions!

@Magdalena:  ditto. This is why most physicians say ms doesn’t start until 6 weeks (mine started at 4). However I did get a positve pregnancy before this started. You would have had to have a surge of hormones to get sick or have a positive test

I would guess stomach bug for now,  but if it goes for more than a couple days it could be… I’d stock up on a digital to test in a couple days!

I’ll echo what the other ladies have said – I would guess it’s the stomach flu since MS is from the rising level of hormones that get you your BFP. For comparision, I got my BFP at 12 DPO (3w5d), had my blood tested at 4w3d I believe and my HCG was 405. (I believe the most sensitive home urine tests detect 12 and above? Please correct me if I’m wrong). I started getting MS at 6 weeks on the nose (just nausea) and the vomiting started at nearly 7 weeks when my HCG was 55,000.

Also, my MS does not feel like a stomach bug to me. I used to get them frequently as a kid, and I remember feeling such relief after throwing up. MS for me is totally different – if I end up throwing up, it gets much worse before it gets better and eating actually HELPS to make the MS go away. Very strange! lol

Wait a few days and test with a digital if you can. If not, the dollar store tests are always a good way to get that need to POAS out of the way without breaking the bank! Good luck and stay hydrated! 🙂
