So, I was on my train heading into work yesterday, and I felt fine for the majority of it. Right before I was about to get off, this wave of sickness came over me. I tried to make it to the next stop without actually getting sick, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Luckily, I had my lunch bag that I quietly (though probably not so quiet for the poor girl next to me) got sick. I then immediately felt fine.
We’ve been TTC for a few months now, but I’m only on day 19 of my cycle. Has anyone heard of getting sick that early? I know if I take a test now, it will most likely turn up negative, so I’m just curious to see if anyone else has felt this way this early when they found out they were pregnant?

Me. I thought I had the flu to be honest.
I was about 3-4 days after ovulating and I was like daaaaaaaaaayum this does not feel like typical flu sick (sudden & random).
When I tested I got a big fat positive (BFP!) even though stats would generally give a false neg.
If you don’t want to get your hopes up wait a week or so, and test then.
if you’re not pregasaurus, then I hope you feel better… if you are congrats 🙂

@missmouse29: Thanks! My first thought was that it was the flu too. Everyone in my office has been sick with a stomach bug and my husband’s work has been infected too. But the fact that I was perfectly fine immediately afterwards and since then made me think otherwise!
I of course don’t want to get my hopes up, but if I’m not pregnant, what the heck just happened??

I thought I was getting sick as well really early on before I even suspected being pregnant.
I was about 21 days in and in the middle of a meeting I got super nauseated and excused myself. I didn’t throw up but it was such an odd quesy feeling that came and went.
The following weekend I felt tired and thought I was coming down with something but it never progressed into anything. The weekend after that I was 4 days late and had a positive test.

I didn’t start getting sick until a number of weeks after conception. Could it be that for some reason you had a bought of motion sickness from the train?
If you have been TTC, though, it really could be something else and it honestly never hurts to test to ease your mind. 🙂

not trying to burst your bubble, but this happened to me while i was taking the bus home once. i felt fine, then almost to my stop i suddenly felt very sick. unfortunately i didn’t have a lunch bag, so i got sick into my crocheted hat 🙁 i don’t get motion sickness, so i have no idea what that was, but i felt fine after and it hasn’t happened since. i hope you’re pregnant, but try not to get your hopes up (as hard as that may be) before you know for sure.

Thanks everyone! I’ve been taking the train for the same distance for 8 years, which is why I didn’t think it was motion sickness at all. I love being on the train – so much better than driving in traffic! I’ve also semi-lost my appetite since going off the pill, and after the incident yesterday, I haven’t really been hungry, but eat b/c it’s lunch/dinner time.
@kitzy: I’m trying not to get my hopes up for that reason! I just don’t really have any other explanation for it. When I had first gotten on, I felt a little dizzy, but felt fine after I sat down. Then about 40 minutes later, that’s when I felt sick.
It’s great to hear others’ stories though! I sort of hope that it’s b/c I’m pregnant and isn’t something more serious!!

Well, I don’t have any advice, but am rooting for you in the pregnancy department!!! I feel like it’s certainly possible. When’s the last time you threw up? Personally I haven’t in years so it would be a for sure sign for me. That plus the fact that you felt so much better afterwards and don’t get motion sickness make me think it might be the coveted BFP! Good luck!!
