is this normal?

I'm 37 weeks today and I started having some pretty strong contractions last night for about an hour starting around 11, but I was finally able to fall asleep. When I got up in the middle of the night a few times to go to the bathroom and take care of our son, I felt like I might throw up, I haven't felt like that since the first trinester.
Has anyone else felt like that before going into labor? I also had to pee every hour yesterday, but the baby dropped like 2 weeks ago.

I got that way with two of my pregnancies.  You may be in early labor or dehydrated (can cause nausea and contractions)

I drank a lot of water yesterday throughout the day because it was really hot, I think I had like 5 bottles besides other things I had to drink yesterday.

A full bladder can also cause contractions, so it's a double edge sword lol.  Drink a ton, keep the bladder empty, plus baby on your bladder... isn't pregnancy fun!

Like I said, I was going to the bathroom at least every hour.

It could be labor "signs", but it's pretty normal to feel that way at the end. I usually feel really energetic before labor.
