Yes it is very possible to feel nausea before you actually have a positive pregnancy test. It is thought that one of the earliest possible signs of pregnancy is to feel nausea. Nausea is not the same as breast changes in that almost all women have pregnancy breast changes but not all women feel nausea. Nausea normally doesn't start until a few weeks after falling pregnant but most women report that they feel queasy as soon as you become pregnant. It is caused by pregnancy hormonal changes and can actual start as soon as the first week of pregnancy. Of course it is commonly known as morning sickness but can occur at any time of the day. It can be triggered by foods, smells, doing anything or even nothing and occurs in about 70 per cent of pregnancies. Another early sign of pregnancy is to experience distaste for unhealthy items such as coffee or cigarettes and they often make a women feel nausea before she has had a positive pregnancy test. A cause for morning sickness is thought to be the high levels of estrogen, progesterone and hcg in the body. Usually conservative treatment such as eating dry cracker or toast  before getting out of bed is a recommended to prevent morning sickness. Some early symptoms of pregnancy are similar to what you feel before getting your period since the hormone progesterone cans cause these symptoms. However if you have breast changes, extreme tiredness, or nausea and you aren't sure why, you should make an appointment with your doctor. Any of these symptoms, ongoing, can be a sign of pregnancy but they can also be a sign that something else is wrong. If you ever think you're pregnant, it's wise to visit your healthcare provider.

It is possible to experience nausea (morning sickness) prior to missing a period if you are pregnant. Feeling sick to your stomach is the result of elevated hormone levels in your body as a result of the pregnancy. Morning sickness is a common side effect of pregnancy and usually is curbed by the beginning of your second trimester, although many women have differing experiences. There are some home pregnancy tests that you can take up to ten days prior to a missed period that you can purchase at your local grocery or drug store. I hope this information is helpful to you!

Yes! It is very much possible that you feel a bit of nausea before a positive pregnancy test. Many women experience such symptoms. It is purely normal for you.

I missed my period on the 24th of Jan. this year, but a little before that I got REALLY sick with this terrible cold!!! After about a week, I started feeling VERY nauseated and I didn't know what was going on!!! I had cramps in my stomach and I was throwing up, but being pregnant was the last thing on my mind. Finally, I went to the doctor and they told me I was pregnant.. and I found out that I was 7wks at the time. So YEAH you could get that nausea... I think it feels like you're going to start your period or something.. well that is what it felt like for me.. except for the nausea.. and it sucks!! I have ALL DAY LONG morning sickness!!! :-(

The morning I went from the bed to the toilet and threw up, I knew I was pregnant - I wouldn't miss my period for another week!
