  • I've had 2 kids and I didn't experience a cold either time however with my 2nd child I got diarrhea right before I went into active labor. And again later in labor. With my first child I had the whole "nesting" thing. It's where you have an insane urge to want to prepare everything for baby like cleaning out closets, setting up the crib, washing all of the baby's clothes.

  • SweetLoveofMine- when i had my son i had diarrhea and was nesting but didnt think anything of it. well not until i woke up that morning to get a bowl of lucky charms and my water broke all over my bed...with this one i had my nesting phase like 3 days ago. and now for the past two days i feel like i have a cold. and so irritable hardly anyone wants to be around me.

    MeAndLo- i didnt have one with my first either. i asked my friends mom (a nurse) and she said many women will get something like a cold up to a week before labor to make their body rest. soo lets see. keep me updated please=]
