audrea - May 10

Are you saying that you think you might be pregnant but want to wait to test? Are you asking because you think you might be having morning sickness already but don't know if it is pregnancy related? To answer your question from my experience, I found out I was pregnant around 5 weeks but did not start getting sick until around 7-8 weeks. I thought maybe something was wrong because I was not sick. Well, I wish I had never started getting sick because mine has been excessive. It started one day as a sick feeling like I was going to throw up. When I started throwing up, it never stopped. I ended up in the hospital twice due to dehydration. Once around 8 weeks and the next time around 11 weeks. I am now 18 weeks and thought it was getting better. About a week ago I went 2 days without getting sick and then the next day only got sick once and then went 2 more days without vomitting. Now for the past three days I have been vomitting again, and today it has been about once every hour or half-hour. The only thing that has ever worked for me is Zofran. Believe me when I say I tried everything else. I have also heard other women say that they felt nervous because they did not have any morning sickness, but this was because it was just too early in their pregnancy for the HCG hormone to be at a high enough level in thier blood to actually give them any kind of symptoms. So, in your case, if you are just now suspecting you are pregnant and you are less than 6 weeks, it should really be too early for you to have morning sickness. Although, some do get it earlier on, the majority do not get symptoms until a little later. I hope that helps. Good luck with ttc.
