  • I know with my lil one ( who I had a month ago) Iost my appetite and didn't feel like myself right before I started my labor.... It very well could be... GL mama.... I hope to hear you had your lil one soon!

  • I got nausea about 30 mins before I went into active labour and threw up in the car. Thank God we were around the corner from hospital. It is really common for some women. Their bodies need to purge and I have always been quick to vomit when sick (but not with morning sickness) GL. Look for the mucous show, or water to break and then call hospital

  • There is some speculation that this is a natural reaction resulting from the hormone change (like the rapid increase in months 1-3) which acts like a natural NPO order at the hospital. Full tummy + Labor = Vomit. Very likely you will go into labor soon! Good luck!

  • Yes, I started feeling sick the week I had my baby. We would go out in public and I'd get dizzy and feel nauseated. I never threw up throughout my entire pregnancy so that was not normal for me. I just felt off. I think you will have the baby this week, in my opinion. Congrats!
