Possible Labor?

I haven't had any of the normal signs of labor and since this pregnancy has been so different than the last i'm at a loss here.


while it doesn't hurt, i keep having frequent feelings of pressure, like the baby is trying to get out, but also pushing up into my rib cage.  I'm keeping hydrated and even made myself eat all meals today even though i feel severely nausiated.


I tried to look online if nausia is a symptom of labor but every article that lists it doesn't mention it.


I see the doctor friday should i bring it up then or call her earlier?

If it IS labor, you'll know soon enough. LOL  Things will progress.  If they don't, then it's not.  Vomiting is a sign of labor, but nausea doesn't always come with that vomiting.  It's pretty spontaneous.

i was feeling nausiated and then spantaniously had dry heaving, with some pressure and pains in my tummy thinking i was in labor went to labor and delivery they put some fluids in me and it made the pain go away they said it was because i was dehydrated even though i had been sipping water all morning, after i left i was back 4 hours later pushing out my baby lol so you might just be dehydrated, and if u go in they may give you fluids which really do help with the pain. But If pains get worse i would definantly call labor and delivery, it's okay to call and explain it to them and see what they think.

i'm 36 weeks and 4 days


Earlier i thought it was dehydration and upped my liquids intake. I feel better this morning, but i'm noticing contractions, they're just not timable or anything yet.  I guess only time will tell

I went into labor at 36 weeks but my first sign was the mucus plug and then the water broke two days after. Sounds to me like your having Braxton hicks

i've been having braxton hicks for the past month.  These are just stronger, they're just not timable.  Dr. said unless they're timable just keep drinking water and keep and watch them
