    Hi ladies, since about a week ago i've had frequent Braxton Hicks, the most horrible, painful lingering back pain especially at night, to the point where I have to sit up or even stand sometimes, and cold/hot packs do nothing! I noticed 3 days ago that I had decreased discharge, it went from having to wear a pad to pretty much dry, but have noticed today it is slowly increasing again.

    I woke up today with nausea & flu symptoms, sneezing, sore throat, nasal congestion, and it feels like there are razorblades digging into my chest :/
    I have no energy, feel completely lethargic & dead.
    I am also having hot & cold flushes with a fluctuating temperature, dizziness and a headache.

    I just feel completely miserable & exhausted. I can't remember the last time I had a good solid sleep, pregnancy hasn't been delightful for me. Everyone keeps saying I need to have energy & be hydrated for labour, how can I be if I can't sleep & drinking water gives me the worst heartburn? Ugh.

    Does this sound like my body "clearing out" before labour arrives? Or is this just totally worthless pain?
