In brief: You may be pregnant

There are a lot of things that can cause tiredness and nausea besides pregnancy.
Is it possible that you were actually pregnant before your last period? Some women have lighter, shorter "periods" in their first trimester. You should see your health care provider to help you figure out if you are pregnant or something else is going on.
