  • I think you should call the doctor, so many people ask questions like this when their questions can be answered by a simple phone call, we aren't your doctor we don't know you or your body. It's better and safer for your baby to consult with a professional.

  • okay justins wife i know you are not my dr i never asked if you were. i was simply asking if an upset stomach is a common pre labor symptom.

  • sometimes when the baby decends farther and farther into the pelvic cavity you will tend to feel the pressure on your back and even your cervix more and more. In order for you to be sure you are in labor, you will have several differnet things happen to you. For instance, loss of your mucus plug, strong contractions that occur regularly, possible rupture of you membranes
