Could I Be Pregnant and Have Symptoms Already?
Quick question....I had my last period on Feb 2. That was the first day that I had it. My husband & I had alittle OOPS recently and now I am feeling nausea's all the time. I actually threw up yesterday. But, I don't quite understand. Even if I was pregnant, could I really be having symptoms this early on? I have a son, so I do realize the signs with pregnancy. And I am just extremely sensitive to smells recently and even the thought of certain foods. Is this the flu or am I pregnant?? Testing wouldn't even work because my period isn't due until next month! What do you think?
So What Happened?™
Thank you everyone for your responses. I decided to get a blood test done today to find out. I will know by tomorrow. I just couldn't wait! I keep throwing everything up!!

It is possible that you could be pregnant. I have been pregnant 4 times. My 1st pregnancy I started getting sick the day after conception. It took over 2 weeks to get a positive test. Also with my 5 year old I was sick for a few weeks before a positive test. Hang in there. Hopefully it either gets better because it is the flu or you have been blessed with another baby! P.

Some women are more sensitive to the HCG pregnancy hormone than other women and/or than they were with previous pregnancies. You can start to develop pregnancy symptoms within a few days of conception.

There is a new test out now that supposedly can detect the pregnancy hormone very early..like weeks before you are due for your period.....just a thought! Good luck!

I was sick at three weeks into my pregnancy. I also took a pregnancy test BEFORE I missed my period before and it was positive, sure enough I was pregnant, Both my daughter and My lost baby were oops, so it is very possible, what's it going to hurt to buy a cheap test and take it now? nothing. The more you worry and stress the longer you pd could take

I have four kids and none of them happened after one of our OOPS, not to say it can't happen but I have had the same experience of knowing it was a possibility because we were not careful and having pregnancy like symptoms only to find out I was not pregnant it is one of the worst waiting games thou.

You may be able to find out... I was able to find out w/ 2 of my children within 2 wks.... However, the coloring was faint, it was there.... And, if your really not sure, ask your doctor for a blood pregnancy test......

Hello A.. When I was pregnant with my first child I had nausea within the first few weeks. I didn't have any idea that I was pregnant for about a month later. My advice is to live like you are pregnant. Then if you happen to be there are no worries. Best of Luck!

your doctor or local hospital lab could most likely do a serum pregnancy test, which is to test your blood. it can tell no matter how early. the hospital i use for lab work, which is a charity hospital, has the test for 10 dollars, no appointment necessary. check with your local charity hospital. where i go it is referred to as the "retail lab".
