The Flu or Pregnant?

Patient

Q: I have been getting sick in the mornings, and then in the afternoons. I have just had a naucious feeling, but not actually vomitting. In the afternoons I have a backahce and a ehadache and all i want is water and pickles. In the mornings I also get the naucious feeling and sometimes a minor headache. This has been going on for three days. Its not a constant feeling that I have. Its only at random points during the day. The WEIRD part is is that I HATE pickles, but lately I crave them and will just sit down and eat some right out of the jar.Also, my breasts are tender. I took a home pregnancy test and it came back negative. Im not sure when my period was last month so im wondering if its possible that i took the test too early? Or maybe this is just a flu of some sort. I guess my question is...does this sound more like a flu bug or pregnancy?
