I know I'm being silly but - early nausea...

Hi all - I'm a regular poster here but name changing as I'm quite recognisable in rl under my normal name (not in a famous way - just to people who know me!)

Just wondering what the earliest people have ever had morning sickness. Basically had just started the pill about 2 months ago, then 2 weeks ago (the day after my af had finished) we had a condom breakage issue. Didn't worry too much but then realised (too late) that i'd had really bad runs that week and it may well have interferred with the pill working (various reasons mean it was the first time i'd been on the pill in sbout 10 years), so had kinda forgotten about that being an issue.)

Today i've been feeling so nauseous but not actually feeling ill - just that horrible feeling that i could be sick at any time. Other than that, and feeling very tired, i feel healthy. Now i know people get nauseous, and i have tummy troubles often anyway, but this feels different. The last time i felt like this i was pregnant with my ds.

I know I'm being silly. Thing is, we have a year old ds, we're in our mid 30s and although we'd both like another one I suspect it won't happen (i had fertility problems, now resolved, then i was very ill in my pregnancy (this is what puts dh off having another), and financially it would make things difficult). So in that respect i'm a bit worried! But on the other hand, we love being parents, we are so happy and we know in our hearts we'd love another child - but the sensible part of us means we are very wary about deliberately ttc (hence the doubling up of contraception). And time isn't on our sides. This week i've also been very anxious - and that was a symptom of my last pregnancy.

So to try and stop rambling - morning sickness after 2 weeks of a potential conception is very unlikely, isn't it? I'm a loon, right? And my rambling is clearly a sign that actually i kinda want it to be pregnancy, isn't it. Cos I kinda do, even though it's stupid. Damn.

Stranger things have happened. When's AF due?

LouiseD29 Tue 07-May-13 22:47:12

Hmm... don't mean to panic you, but I had a day of feeling really queasy about 2-3 weeks after conception - it was what planted the seed of the idea that I might be pg. Sure enough - BFP. On the plus side - it was the only morning sickness I got! Now 26 weeks...

ThisIsMyNameChange Tue 07-May-13 23:00:13

AF due two weeks today but we dtd the day after the last one finished, two weeks ago.

Worst thing is i'm worried I'm convincing myself it could be, as deep down i think an unplanned one will be the only way we do get another child. We're both just very sensible and careful. Doesn't mean the heart doesn't ache though...

But also feeling crampy (which i did 2 weeks after conception last time - i kept charts of stuff like this, lol, we wrre ttc religiously) and tender gums. So i think i'm setting myself up for a bit of sadness here, even though it'd be for the best, because of course I'm not going to be pregnant. Odds on, anyway... Must be in my head.

ooh, congratulations Louise! I hope the next 14 weeks sail by! Is it your first?

enjolraslove Wed 08-May-13 02:59:26

Completely agree with Louise. I know baby was conceived on 21st dec. first felt sick on 2nd jan! I hope you get a result you are happy with!

nannyl Wed 08-May-13 08:13:45

my baby was also concieved 21st dec, and i first felt sick on 2nd Jan.

by 10th Jan i was really very poorly and a couple of days later signed off for the rest of my pregnancy with HG sad

LouiseD29 Wed 08-May-13 08:44:58

Thanks namechange - yes, it's the first one for me! Very much planned and wanted.

Good luck, and I hope you get the result you want.

RubyrooUK Wed 08-May-13 09:33:54

Ok, so Namechange, this COULD be nothing. It could be a bug. That's most likely.

On the other hand, I am on a train with sleeping eight week old DS2, who was conceived at a random moment last summer when DH and I grabbed a quick "moment". I knew I was pregnant before I missed a period. I felt vaguely nauseous very quickly and bought nine pregnancy tests to take on holiday blush. (Can you tell I was a bit overexcited?)

It took us three years and fertility treatment to have DS1. Miscarriages too. I have no idea why DS2 was such a breeze to conceive.

So it also is possible although I don't want to get your hopes up. (Unless that cheers you up to know it is possible.) When is your period due? Do you have First Responses at the ready?

I often find I feel nauseous in the run up to the end of my cycle, pregnant or not. It is worse if I'm pregnant though!

So, I don't know, is the helpful answer.

Definitely could be morning sickness. I felt horrendous very early, about two weeks after conception (half asleep accident, forgot about it then suddenly remembered and took morning after pill at around 68 hours later). Two weeks later I was retching whenever I attempted to drink cows milk and sure enough I was pregnant. Total shock, financial disaster but now he's here we're so happy.

Any update NameChange? Have been wondering if you are still feeling weird or if the symptoms have worn off...

ThisIsMyNameChange Mon 13-May-13 08:44:10

I've still had the occasional very light feeling of nausea, but nothing especially concrete. What's worrying me now a bit is that I've been very tired (I had two naps yesterday, totalling 3 hours, which is unlike me but I do have a young dc so...) and I've had light cramps, which I got about 10 days before my bfp last time. Now, I do usually get period pains anyway, but normally they're very bad and I only ever get them 2 days before my period. My period is due on Thursday so I shouldn't be cramping yet - plus I had them for three days and now they've stopped. So feeling a bit nervous right now! I'm going to look like such an idiot if I do get my period!

So, if I haven't come on by Friday then I'll take a test. I know there are earlier tests but as they're much more unreliable I'm going to wait. Have talked to my dh about it - I know he'll be supportive as he's the best bloke ever, but I also know he will really want me to not be pregnant.

ThisIsMyNameChange Mon 13-May-13 08:46:45

Btw, in my previous post from last week I miscalculated the start date of my next period. It's definitely this Thursday.

terilou87 Mon 13-May-13 10:06:18

my last period was 10-4-2013 and was feeling sick around 4th may got my positive result on 6th may (only took it because oh was joking i might be preg), really early positive so i'm presuming i ovulated earlier than usual and i was also taking the mini pill, cerezette, same time everyday without missing any so god knows how i managed to conceive.confused happy surprise though smile

ThisIsMyNameChange Mon 13-May-13 11:08:15

Nausea just came back, and Cerazette was the pill I was taking!

Seeline Mon 13-May-13 11:19:06

It could be the pill that is making you feel sick. I had to change brands once because of that.

ThisIsMyNameChange Mon 13-May-13 11:24:09

That's true... Slight spotting now though. Crap.

Rockchick1984 Mon 13-May-13 12:14:08

It's very unlikely that you ovulated immediately after your period - it's generally about 2 weeks before AF due so around the time you felt nauseous would have been the time you could potentially have conceived. It's vaguely possible to ovulate that early but an incredibly slim chance, sorry.

If you aren't pregnant, maybe speak to your DH - it's clear you want another baby, why not use this situation to prompt the conversation?

ThisIsMyNameChange Mon 13-May-13 13:46:36

I know Rockchick - problem is that my ds was conceived with pretty much the same timescale. He was conceived 3 days after my period ended. Because he was my first I didn't really notice the symptoms and was only 3 days late when I got my bfp. Just looked at my notes from that time and I did spot, cramp and feel nauseous at around the same timescale.

Having said that, you're right. There's definitely an element of me wanting it to be a pregnancy. I am a very sensible person - would never plan to conceive without dh's full support and with a half-decent chance of things not being problematic. It's a definite battle of head over heart - would so dearly love another child but the problems we'd face would be hard. Not impossible, but enough to make me think not having one yet is the better option. I know my dh would like another, but not yet - perhaps when ds starts school. On the other hand I don't want such a big age gap, it would mean my career was compromised for a longer period (hard to plan to strengthen your career when you're looking at extending your part time hours for another 5 years) plus my age. That's my biggest fear. So perhaps I'm looking for symptoms that don't exist so that I can pretend, just for a second...

My dh does have valid reservations, I can't dismiss them, but once this has a definite conclusion I think we will need to talk.

Just an update - due today (Thursday) but nothing. I did take a test on Monday and it was bfn, so am not too worried now, but if my period hasn't started by Saturday I'll take another as the test I took was only 50% odd correct when taken so early. But so far looks likely it's a negative. Not sure how I feel about that, tbh. Mostly, but not solely, relief.

SwanseaMum Fri 17-May-13 08:01:17

I was on cerrazette too, had a bfp on Saturday total shock as I wasn't planning on having any more cause I was so ill with my last one ( have 3 ds) and he is only 6 months old. I felt unwell about 2 weeks b4 I got bfp nausea and my gums bleed when I am pregnant that's how I knew. I did 4 tests 2 were very very weak so I got the 1st response and it was clear as a bell.
I really hope u get the result u want when u test again. Use a 1st response 1 they are really sensitive xx

Rockchick1984 Fri 17-May-13 09:00:06

I hope you get the result you want, whichever way that is smile

Prawnsize Fri 17-May-13 18:03:11

Oh My Goodness, I can't wait to hear the result!

My husband and I decided to try for a baby but changed our minds when his work situation changed - we're going to wait a couple more years. Only thing is, I think I'm pregnant! I'm not looking forward to telling him because it will be stressful (he has to go abroad to work, hopefully on rotation (2 months on, 2 months off) but could be as far as Hong Kong!) but at the same time I know that in these circumstances somehow everything works out just fine because it's a must that it does!

Good luck :-)

ThisIsMyNameChange Sat 18-May-13 23:35:17

Just a bit of a non event update. Am now 2 days late, haven't taken a test though as I've had period pains so thought to myself 'Ok, must be imminent.' But it really should have started now and the period pains have eased up considerably. Plus I've had to be out on antibiotics due to unrelated issues and they have given me a tremendously bad case of the galloping trots so pp could actually be normal stomach ache. Had a few other weird signs (boobs look giant, peed 8 times at work yesterday as opposed to my normal 2-3 times, sleepless nights) but I guess realistically the overwhelming evidence is that I am due on soon. Still, if my period hasn't started by Monday and I haven't got crippling pains then I'm taking the test.

Good at making a bit of drama drag out, eh?

ThisIsMyNameChange Sat 18-May-13 23:36:30

Oooh, and congratulations Swansea and good luck Prawn - do you know either way yet?
