I'm 36 weeks and....
I've been having contractions since last night after I woke up and vomited. I started timing them at 8:30am and they've been 6-20 min apart all day. The contractions more or less take my breath away but the pain in my lower back hurts during them. Also having menstrual type cramping in between or during a contraction. I've had no appetite but ate soup, granola bars, & fruit. Been feeling nauseous all day and having hot/cold flashes. Usually I have a hot flash during a contraction.
With my last labor I couldn't tell I was in labor because my contractions weren't consistent until really hard labor.
My midwife suggested magnesium and rest or walking, really whatever makes me feel best. I'm hesitant to try magnesium because I'm not sure how my body will respond. I'm planning a homebirth but don't want to go into labor just yet.
Does it sound like I could be sick or having early signs of labor? Oh and I don't have a fever.
Sorry so long, thanks mamas!
