Hi bees. Have any of you who have recently gotten pregnant or been pregnant before ever experienced nausea as an early sign of pregnancy? I typically read that most woman don’t experience “morning sickness” until they are in their 8th week of pregnancy. I am 8 DPO today and this morning I woke up with this incredible need to get sick. My mouth was watering like made. I wasn’t sure I’d actually make it to the bathroom. Once I did, nothing happened and the urge went away completely within a few minutes.
Such a weird sensation. Definitely never happened to me before. I have been struggling with unrelenting indigestion for the past week as well. Just wondered if anyone has any experience with nausea as an early pg sign…

I was experiencing waves of nausea and indigestion 2-3 days prior to my BFP. I got my BFP via a blood test 11DPO but still had a BFN from a HPT that morning. So yes, it is possible 🙂

It’s possible, but I always caution against believing it — just because I think telling someone, “Yes, it’s morning sickness,” can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. In my 4th cycle trying (I’m in #10 now, if that gives any indicator to what likely happened), I had all of the classic pregnancy symptoms. I felt very nauseous, my chest was very sore and tender, I had cramping on-and-off from about 6 DPO, etc. It was unlike any symptoms I’d had before or since, and I started testing early like a crazy person. I never saw a positive.
Who knows? Maybe I was, and it just never had a chance to register.
But, 8 DPO is probably too early for morning sickness — probably, not necessarily. I do hope, for what it’s worth, that this is it for you and that in a few days, you’re looking at a BFP. Not much longer to go. Good luck!

@Merelton: It was for me (went to the doctor’s thinking I had the stomach flu), but I’m pregnant with twins which can be extra nauseating. I think everyone experiences pregnancy differently.

@Merelton: It was my first symptom and the reason I tested early. I got my BFP at 9 dpo and was nauseous a day or two before that! My mom said the same happened with her 🙂

I didnt have nausea until 7 weeks. I had lots of gas prior to my bfp and normal symptoms that I would usually get during ovulation but didnt go away. Such as my palpitations, they are hormonal and I get them every day now insread of just the week or two before my period. And acid reflux.

I didn’t get full MS until after 8 weeks. After that point I was nauseated at some point every day. I did have 2 days around 6 weeks that I felt nauseated in the AM but every other day before and after I was fine. I’ve occasionally had nausea in the AM if I’m super hungry (and not pregnant-usually after drinking the night before) so I really didn’t think anything unusual about it at the time.
I don’t think MS kicks in until 6 weeks for most people but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen earlier either. Sometimes it doesn’t happen at all though.

So I’m 6w2d and I just had my first bout of morning sickness today. Literally I was on the September mommas board asking yesterday if I needed to be worried because I had so few symptoms.
It could go either way. The only symptom I really had prior to BFP is that a) I had a few hot flashes around implantation (which I had never heard of being symptoms) and b) I had NONE of my normal AF symptoms.
Good luck though!

My friend had MS a week before her missed period…at first, she thought she had a stomach bug, but by day 3 of it she tested and got a BFP. She was the same way during her second pregnancy too. So it’s possible!

@Merelton: My first symptom of pregnancy was nausea. I got my bfp 2-3 days before my period was due and I had nausea the day I tested. I also didn’t have my typical pms boob pain. That came back full force a couple weeks after my bfp, lol.

Thanks for the feedback, ladies! I’m cautious to make any solid conclusions. I mean…I know the best way to really know is to test, but I’m mystified by what happened this morning. I’m holding out until the 19th to test. So we’ll see how things go over the next couple days. What a wild ride! 🙂

Congratulations! Morning Sickness is a healthy sign of pregnancy – it means your body is making an adequate supply of hormones to keep you very pregnant…but sick! Read up on it at Science Daily.com by doing a search 🙂
Both of my pregnancies, being a working woman, I was SICK. as in smells even made me sick…even before I got my diagnosis. If you ever have been on an oral birth control, and had a little nausea in the beginning getting used to it, it just might mean you are a little more sensitive then the average bear (mama 🙂 I am a sensitive one lol so its very possible that you are too…
another very early sign for me was peeing all the time. all the time. it seemed that even my bladder was wondering what that thing was growing next door.. before i even knew..however by my fifth month, it was like i woke up and the nausea, getting sick was all done. I felt great up until the end; then I found it was easier to carry a baby on the outside then in the inside… Hugs to you!!
