why am I feeling this way?

Im 38 weeks along and todays been crap.
I woke up feeling happy and energized, in the mood to clean and get things done and then i started to get bad cramps in my abdoman, without contractions but a shooting pain that felt like electricty shot down my legs. i feel faint and overheated as well.
I havnt eaten ANYTHING because I feel so sick, but I have been drinking water.
Is this feeling normal?
Is it the start of labor?
Im confused.

  • That is how I felt right before I went into labor. I would call the Dr if you are really concerned

  • You probably need to eat relax for a lilttle bit and see how you feel afterwards you might of got too energized I get like that sometimes too and I eat and rest and feel much better afterwards but if you still feel concerned call your DC. Ok take a chill pill mamma to be I'm also 38 weeks good luck.
