Did you ever feel sick before you went into labor? I've heard of people feeling like they had the flu a few days before or running to the bathroom as their body "cleaned" itself haha. Just curious what ya'll experienced before the contractions really started!
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.
With DD2 I had contractions for days if not weeks before birth, but never got the runs. I was induced 4 days early so maybe my body never made it to that point? I remember being a little backed up so I had an enema a few hours before.
With my first, I woke up in the middle of the night thinking that I had indigestion from the Indian food I ate the night before... stomach cramps and running back and forth to the bathroom. He was born about 7-8 hours later (at 34w4d). It took a good 2 hours of labor before I realized what it actually was. I thought I just had an upset stomach.
