    I have felt very off n miserable for the last 2 days
    I kinda feel like I am getting the flu.....

    I can't eat normal portions n if i try to I get nausea n want to throw up..
    just sitting makes me feel dizy and then I have shortness of breathe.
    Been having loose stools for a couple days n gas :(
    Terrible headaches , can't sleep if my own life depended on it!! Mostly because I can't breathe at night:growlmad:. This morning I was having dull back pains ... nothing serious but it kept waking me up... my whole body is just soo achy!

    I just feel like im getting sick or something! but i have heard ppl getting flu like symtoms is common before labor

    About 4 days before I went into labour I got a really bad cold with aches and pains and complete fatigue. I was concerned that if I did go into labour I wouldn't be able to do it as I was I'll.

    As soon as my waters went my cold pretty much cleared and wasn't an issue during the birth or after.

    Could be a coincidence but I have also heard of women getting colds / flu just before labour.
