Ok so I really tried not to get DH's flu. and I failed and feel about as horrendous as I have felt in years--fever, chills, sore throat, nasty cough that feels like bits of glass, headache-- the works. It sucks more than I can quite describe...and then there is this body ache thing---started with aching joints and low back pain, but now I am getting confused/concerned. I have been having some stronger contractions (albeit fairly irregular but I am sortof not keeping good track). The back pain won't stop-- no real break and it runs down my legs so that I can't lie still or rest. Then the contractions come and go....so how do I tell what is what? Are these the ongoing contractions I have been having for weeks just made more intense by flu pain or is something more going on? I don't want to deliver when DH and I both have the flu.
