So I am almost 37 weeks and for the last few days have felt nauseas and have no trouble at all having a BM while I go to the bathroom. A co worker said that they are signs that labor is near? I went to the dr on Tues and I’m not dilated or anything. Anyone else have these symptoms??
ETA: I did not have any morning sickness etc throughout the whole pregnancy.

@r_hink: This is my first pregnancy so I don’t really have any personal experience to offer. I just hate seeing unanswered threads…I feel like they are so well mean.
I would maybe call and ask..or just try to relax he or she will make it here right on time.

I have nothing to add but I gotta tell you… I opened this thread wondering what being nauseous had to do with your bridesmaids! and I laughed a little bit. too much time on the bee.
hope you feel better soon and good luck with your upcoming wee one!

@r_hink: Very well could be! I’m not as sure about the nausea, but when prostaglandins start to get revved up, they can cause loose BMs (prostaglandins also cause cervical dilation and contractions).

@mu_t: LOL I didn’t think about bridesmaids!!
@ames12708: Thanks for your reply 🙂
@cowgirlace: I read that online, and there are a lot of other symptoms of course that they list and I feel like you can go crazy researching and researching.
I was hoping maybe some ladies had some experience but I guess not so only time will tell! Third day straight feeling sick to my stomach so we shall see. I am hoping if I have her early it’s not THIS early.

I never heard that & didn’t experience that with dd.

I didn’t have any nausea but I had looser stools starting a week or so before I went into labor. Hope that helps!

I honestly cannot remember LOL. My brain is fried. Not sure if that is a sign or anything (the bm). Are you having contractions at all?
I was having BH contractions for like 2 weeks or so and it was getting really uncomfortable, some were even a little painful. I had to go in to the hospital to see just to make sure I was not dilating (I’m only 30 wks and some days). If you’re not dilated, then you still have time, but you’re nearing the end so it’s a possibility your body is gearing up for labor.

Is the nausea set off by anything? certain motions, positions, foods?
Not sure about the BMs, but I know the nausea is often due to abdominal compression as the baby gets bigger. As you get closer to your due date, you may feel a “lightening” which is the baby shifting downwards, which will relieve some pressure on your stomach and diaphragm.

@bridalprincess: I’m not having any BH’s or anything. No contractions whatsoever!
@Nferrari: The only thing I can say that is consistent is that I start not feeling well in the early afternoon and it lasts all night until I go to bed.

@r_hink: we’re the lucky ones. I’m just a week or so ahead of you and my OB says that some women just get sick due to the increased hormones- I have days where I’m constantly vomiting. I’m no longer the cute pregnant lady 🙂
I’m sorry to tell you that it could be weeks still (well, not that sorry if you want to keep your babe baking, just sorry you’re not feeling well).
