  • Is this normal for you? I threw up almost everyday until I had my son so that wouldn't have been a warning sign for me. If this isn't normal for you I would go to the hospital. I got really sick when I was in labor before I ever felt a contraction.

  • Keep calling the doc, or call the ER. It's hard to say, maybe a virus, but you should get checked out to be sure. Please update us when you find out?

  • They say when you start to throw up before having a baby that labor is coming soon. Go to the hospital and make sure the baby is ok

  • it doesn't hurt to be checked out by the doctors, it's always better save than sorry.

  • No its not necessarily normal to puke at the end of pregnancy, however I did all 3 times. I dont think its necessary to call your doctor after only puking 3 times. Push the fluids and you'll be fine. Having said that... vomitting can also start contractions and at 39 weeks... I bet that would be GREAT for you!!

  • I'd keep trying to get the doc. They don't get back to you at your hospital's labor and delivery? There are some nasty stomach viruses going around lately. Make sure you get enough fluids.
