Contractions with a side of nausea

So all day I have been having contractions. I know they are stronger than the ones yesterday since even being active I was feeling em. Tonight I decide to slide my couch over, it's on a wood floor with felt things on bottom so it's not hard at all, and I am feeling super sick to my stomach. I really haven't been timing contractions cuz I have been busy folding laundry and sweeping the floor trying to make some room for the baby swing in the living room. I sat down cuz I needed a break and I wanna barf! Could it just be contractions affecting my stomach? I didn't eat anything funky so I don't think it's due to food. Were you feeling nauseous while having contractions??

I think it could definitely be because you are contractions. Sometimes when your body knows you're going into labor you will eat less because everything is slowing down in your digestion. Congratulations.

Re: Contractions with a side of nausea

I felt sick to my stomach and actually had pretty loose stools for the first 2 hours of my 5 hour labor. By the time I was ready to push there was nothing left in them, which was awesome. Sounds like you're really close! (maybe you have your baby by now!)
