last night I started sneezing and felt really congested, as if a cold were coming on. I've been up periodically and have had major chills but my temp isn't that high (99ish). Congestion is mostly gone, now I just have a headache. Feeling slightly crampy but nothing bad. Could this be early labor, or just a cold/flu? Seems like others have had similar symptoms.<br><br>
thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

i had similar stuff yesterday... still no labor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> i guess it could be a sign that it's impending, a hormonal shift or something... but that could also just be wishful thinking on my part, heh.<br><br>
good luck, i hope this is it for you!

My sister had similar symptoms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/fever.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Fever">: (although she threw up:puke ) the eve of her daughter being born. They say that sometimes the body cleanses itself before going into labor. Well I sure hope that you feel better, one way or another. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I had a similar experience about 4 weeks ago. Very scarey stuff. Cold chills followed by fever and severe shakes. I decided that mine was due to the three, yes three sushi rolls I absolutely could not pass up earlier that night. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I know, brilliant, right? Anyway, I was terrified, and took a bath in salt and finally it subsided after a few minutes and I went back to sleep a few hours later after scanning a few books for symptoms and possibilities.<br>
Anyway, do you think it was food related? Ive read that our immune system is very low and can take almost no bacteria.<br><b>Are you feeling better now?</b>

Sorry, I got your name confused. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I thought you were in the 'May 2007' EDD group. Guess its not scarey but would be good to be labor. Good luck.

not feeling much better, and no increase in the cramps. might just be a cold <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/fever.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Fever">: - I've eaten pretty lightly lately but I did have scrambled eggs for dinner. ew - hope it wasn't that. I'm going to try tea, heating pad, maybe a bath, and back to bed.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat">

I've felt like I'm coming down with something since Tuesday... cold (odd for me in pregnancy, usually I'm boiling), achy, headache, crampy... but here I am, and nothing. Oh well.
