Ok, yesterday and all morning, I have had a bad headache. For the last 4 hours, I've been feeling like needing to puke and it gets worse when I move and I'm having sharp pains in my 'pelvic area.' Along with tightening, probably Braxton Hicks.

Could this be early labor or something to worry about

best bet is call your OB or labor and delivery and see what they say.

I felt this way in both pregnancies around 35 weeks. ESP with my first since she was my first pregnancy. I seemed to feel like crap in the begining, good in the middle, and like crap at the end. I'd call you OB just to be on the safe side. But the sharp pains in your pelvic area could just be the baby moving or moving downward.

How bad is the headache? How's your bp been? Are you seeing spots? Are you drinking plenty of water.

They could be Braxton hicks contractions, but you should still time them. Try going for a walk, laying on your side, or taking a bath. If they do not start to get easier, they may not be Braxton hicks.

You should get your bp checked!

I still feel nauseas today, but I started my weekly checkups today and everything is fine with my baby boy and the headache has gone away. My blood pressure was 130/70 (which he said is good), and he checked all the swelling. He said the nausea could mean labor will be soon, but everything he sees is fine
