It's like 2am here at the moment and although I've sent my midwife an email, I'm up looking at Google answers to my questions, which is ALWAYS a bad idea, so I figured I'd just post this question here, try to get some sleep and see what you wonderful MDC mamas have to say about this when I check back tomorrow.
The other day, I was having some really intense tightening, Braxton-Hicks type action. I have no idea what it's supposed to feel like, as this is my first, but my mother told me she thought that's what it was... so okay, I've been feeling those for a few weeks now... no big deal. Well tonight in the grocery store, my left side started cramping really badly, and it actually HURT... I kept thinking it was maybe some round ligament pain, but it was hard to get through the checkout line without wanting to call my mommy... which is weird, because I'm really not usually like that with ANYTHING.
SO, I get home and post some responses here, check my email, feel a little better, eat something and then set up my birth tub and go to bed. So, then I woke up an hour later and barely made it to the bathroom before I vomited EVERYTHING I just ate. Now, I have been VERY lucky this whole pregnancy and did not get sick at all except for an unfortunate disagreement with a small bag of gummy bears around 16 weeks or so... my question is: could this be a sign of impending labor? I read that it is likely, but it sort of freaks me out.
If I go by my LMP, then my due date would actually be August 29th and I'd be 37 weeks and 2 days today, which I think would be okay if I go into labor in a few days, right?... but if I go by what my midwife thinks, calculating cycle dates, etc... then I'm only 35 weeks and 4 days, which makes me worry about pre-term labor. I've otherwise had a VERY healthy pregnancy (super low-blood pressure, good blood sugar, no edema, etc.) and this little guy seems to be measuring pretty big here... today he measured 38 weeks. *shrug* I guess at least I have the birth tub set up, right?
