Ok I thought I would ask what you ladies think. For a couple of days now I have been feeling 'off'. On and off spells of nausea, (TMI ALERT) bouts of diarrhea, very tired all the time(like all I want to do is sleep and have NO energy all of a sudden, when I haven't been having that problem) and continued cramping. Last Thursday I was dilated to a 1 and 20% effaced. DH thinks I am in early labor. I am wondering if I am getting sick. What do ya'll think?

Really hard to tell. If the flu bug has been in your area it could be that but I've also heard of sickness before birth too. I would keep loading up on the fluids and vitamins either way. Hope you feel better!

Agree, good advice!

Haven't really heard of anything going around. But that don't mean that there isn't something. Drinking lots of water and juices, and just seeing what happens. I did put my mom on alert that it might be getting close, she is going to go ahead and get all her stuff loaded just in case but not head this way. As much as I don't feel ready for baby to be here and want her to hang on a little while longer, I really hope I'm not getting sick.

It is hard to say. You won't know unless you start to feel better or you start getting regular strong contractions. I have heard of people feeling off and sick right before labor starts but I have also heard that some people feel great right before labor starts. Either way I hope that you start to feel better!

That's how I felt for a week before I went into labor. I didn't want to do ANYTHING but sleep. I got fluish type symptoms like the diarrhea about 2 or 3 days before. Good luck!

I feel the EXACT same! I could have written this. I've had every one of those symptoms in the past week. I don't feel like I'm getting sick per say though. Glad to have someone to relate to, even if it isn't pleasant! Hope you feel better soon! I'd be happy if this meant labor was a week away! I'm really hoping for the 17th, 18th, 19th as it'll work perfect for DHs work schedule (he gets a week off every month).

DH says that I am being stubborn, because I even if I wont admit it I know I'm not getting sick because I do have spells where I feel better and I just don't admit it. After talking to my mom again she seems to think that I am in early labor as well, but thinks I will still have a couple days. Says she felt some of the same right before her labors, she never had much pain just feeling sick.

I just posted something similar...not the same, but I am having cramps like crazy....and when the baby moves it hurts even worse. I'm exhausted and feeling just odd. I don't know...kind of thinking early labor...even if it means a few days...I'd be glad to wait though! As long as she needs! Hope you rest well tonight!

Still feeling off. I'm kinda worried about today. With my luck I will go into labor today. I'm all alone in town today. My mom is 8 hours away, my DH is out on a job that puts him out of cell service for the day, FIL is out of town for the day(not that I would really want my FIL in the room with me). Guess my BIL is around to drive me to the hospital if I have to go, but I do not want him in the room with me, that would just be weird. So with all that I just have to horrid feeling, hopefully I wont go into labor today, but with my luck. . .
