How do you distinguish being sick from pregnancy and the flu?

Completely different: While people talk about "stomach flu" there is actually no such thing. Influenza is a respiratory illness, with fever, chills, diffuse achiness, sore throat and cough. Pregnancy is morning nausea, and does not have diarrhea in particular, or fever or any of the other things above.
