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.

Felt flu-ish? No. Body cleaned itself out? Oh yes! Before and during labor I used the bathroom very frequently, number 1 and number 2. Lots of pressure while doing it too so I knew it was time.

I just felt "off". More tired than usual, and just not myself. I've heard of other people having flu-like symptoms, though.

Thank you, MommaDucks, for my lovely siggy

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.

didn't have that with either of my other two, but I wouldn't doubt it with this one, my whole digestive system seems to be different with this one...

Nope never. My first 4 were inductions past my due date. The last 3, my water broke on its own. Never had any hint of anything prior

My water broke or started leaking at home with both kids. That's was how I knew it was baby time. After that I did make lots and lots of potty trips before we left for the hospital.

I actually went to DS' preschool Christmas party with my water starting to trickle out. I just wore a pad and crossed my fingers I'd get through the hour party. I did, lol.

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.

I've never went into labour so I'm not sure. I went in for scheduled inductions at 41 weeks with both.
