How early can NVP start?

Question:
Is it possible to have morning sickness as early as 2 weeks into a pregnancy? I had severe morning sickness with my daughter, first child, and some with my son, second child. However, I don't know for sure that I am pregnant and have to wait to take the early pregnancy tests but could be. I have been nauseous and some vomiting and some pain in the pelvic region for the last 4 days and nights. Just wondered how early you could have morning sickness or if it may be another cause. Thanks for the time.

Answer:
Pregnancy is different for everyone. We have had reports of women experiencing nausea from the time of conception. Pelvic pain should be discussed with your doctor.
