Sign of labor??

Ok, I am 36 weeks. This all nite and morning I have been sick, throwing up - even in the sink when I (tried) to brush my teeth. Sorry, tmi. And also, after being constipated for weeks, I have used the bathroom quite EASY 3 times today. Could this be a sign that labor is coming?
I read this:
Many women experience an upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea in the days leading up to labor. Your body is getting ready for the pushing that will take place by cleaning out your system.

  • I experienced all of these the day before I went into labor.
    But you could also just be coming down with the flu...
