  • oh, sure! I think more than feeling feverish or coughing or whatever, moms-to-be will feel tired and "out of it." It's like that fog you get when you have a cold, there is a space between you & the rest of the world, hard to explain, maybe!
    What are you noticing?

  • Nausea and diarrhea can be signs of the onset of labor too.

  • I didn't have flu like symptoms, but I was very irritable, in a lot of pain, and very very tired. I had been having contractions for at least a month before my son was born, but the last two weeks, they were bad.

  • Oh yeah, I went to the hospital Friday thinking I had a terrible case of the swine flu and that my son was surely being harmed, turned out I was in early labor. They sent me home and told me to come back if my water broke or I had contractions 5-7 minutes apart for 2 hours...4 hours later everything stopped and I felt fine...I'm still waiting to have the baby!
