  • Yup sounds like it may be soon. The fingertip is what makes me think labor will be soon. Not the rest that sounds like a cold or mild food poisoning

  • Maybe, then again maybe not. Being dilated doesn't tell you anything about when you'll go into labor. Many women do get diarrhea and vomiting before they go into labor or you could just have a virus.

    Drink plenty of water and try and get some rest. A warm bath with some epsom salts may help with the pelvic pain. You could also do some hip rocks, get on your hands and knees and sway your hips back and forth, to help relieve some of the pressure. I'd also go see a chiropractor tomorrow and get an adjustment, that should help a lot with the pelvic pain.

  • hard to day. Drink plenty of fluids and try to rest. Make sure your bag is packed and carseat installed!

  • Nothing really says Labor there. BUT those things *can* be associated with labor, too.
    Dilation isn't really relevant, fatigue-exhaustion and pain are normal, vomiting can happen when we are in labor or are ill~
    Listen to what your body is saying: it needs you to pay better attention, to pamper it, give it rest.

    Best wishes!

  • Yep. Get your bags packed. You're gonna have a baby soon.

  • I would say just get ready. Keep your bags by the door or in the car. Install the car seat. Just be ready to go at any time.
