I had a headache yesterday and it subsided as the day when on. This morning it's really bad -- all behind my eyes. Its hard to keep my eyes open.
I feel so nauseated like I could vomit at any given time.. and I keep having the feeling like I have to go to the bathroom, along with period crampish tightenings (not REALLY painful but painful enough).

I haven't had any increase in cm..

What do you think?

*eta - With both of my girls my water broke. With Vae I had no signs of labor before hand and with Sophia I had bloody show on the Friday and then had her on Sunday.. So I really have idea how labor starts, besides the water breaking part *

I felt weird before labor too but it actually a few days before when I had some early labor that stopped. I am sure it's connected but that doesn't mean it's time yet. Hang in there!!!

It doesn't sound like it's the flu. I think it may not be long now. That's so exciting!! How fun would it be to experience your labor starting up with contractions first. Yay!

It could be soon- especially if you do vomit.

Good luck, and labor vibes!!!!

Well Jeremy has officially burst my bubble
He came home from work early because he thinks he has the flu - he did vomit but he said it was because he was coughing so .. there still could be hope

I will keep you posted.. and thanks for the replies!
