Cold Symptoms and Labor???


I feel like i have just gotten hit by a mac truck! Aside from the runny nose, congested nose, and the sore throat (from post-nasal drip due to the runny nose) I feel great. Actually i love being pregnant, even tho im due on Monday! But today i started getting cold-like symptoms. I've been told that it could pre-labor signs. Is that really true? im not sure if it really is a cold, or maybe even allergies, or pre-labor. All i know is that im due in a few days and i just got hit with these symptoms today! Hell, i look down and my nose runs out on me! LOL And it being summer...well i have NEVER been sick in the summer, so i just dont know

I've felt like I've had a cold the last few days too. Runny nose, sore throat, soooo tired and just worn down like a cold makes me feel. Not sure if has anything to do with labor or not. I was just checked yesterday and I'm not even dilated, so I don't think I'm going into labor. But, my mom felt like she had a cold and actually ran a fever right before EVERY labor/birth (she had 4 babies).
Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks sweetie Hope you feel better as well!
Fx'ed for the both of us!
I read that one of the hormones that increases to start labor causes all membranes to be more...mucousy so the hormone that causes CM to increase is also the same hormone that would cause more runny noses and other bottly functions. Dont know if its true or not be you'll have to keep me updated! Your mom sounds very inspiring!

I have no idea about colds as pre labour signs but I always thought increased CM (well creamy CM) is caused by progesterone which drops just before labour starts. This is a similar drop to when af starts so some people apparently get MASSIVE PMS!

Good luck. Xx

Funny you should say that as we are both due on Monday, I feel great although enjoying my not having to get up in the morning and I too have just started to get a slight cold. Bit of a dry throat, runny nose, feeling a little congested.

I have no other signs of labour I am slowly losing bits of my mucus plug but have been for weeks. I get the odd cramping but most of the time its because I need a number 2 (sorry tmi). Apart from that, baby is very active and I'm getting high and low kicks.

Hmmm, this LO is going to take after Daddy and be very late!

You sound exactly like me!!!! I have felt WONDERFUL this entire pregnancy. Hell i dont even mind going over-due i love being pregnant and it suites me very well. Was up until yesterday! UGH! LOL I lost my plug at 37+3, but some little bits are still coming out. Fx'ed for all of us!!!!

This is the first time i have been sick this entire pregnancy...and i NEVER get sick in the dead of summer! IDK. Maybe it is coincidental, but for the sake of baby being due on Monday- im taking it as a sign for now! LOL
