<p>Not sure what's going on but I woke up at least 2 hours ago with cramps that could not be ignored and have not gone away. Constant cramping, not rhythmic contractions. But, uh, (sorry, TMI) loose bowels are also happening.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm not due for another two weeks and I assumed as this is my first I would go past my EDD (well, <strong><em>hoping</em></strong> I would, if you've read the Sagittarius v. Capricorn thread), so fingers crossed that this is just a warm up or that I ate something bad yesterday.<span>.. </span> <span><img alt="crap.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/crap.gif"></span></p>

<p>Well it could be either one!  This is how I felt yesterday and so far, quite a bit today as well.  I hope, since you do too, that it's just an upset tummy and you'll be feeling better soon!</p>

I'm interested to hear what happens! I was having some of the same cramping keeping me up last night but now nothing and no plug yet. I was hoping for a cap too but I'm ready to be done!

<p>A few weeks ago I had a ton of contractions and some loose bowels, but nothing came of it.  Let us know how it turns out for you!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>P.S. - I'm due around the same time as you, The Janet, and my husband is not-so-secretly hoping for a Sag, just like him.  :)</p>

<p>Well...looks like it's just a stomach bug. And when I say "just" I mean "really awful and physically debilitating".</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm trying not to vomit, trying to stay hydrated and trying to keep my temperature down. <span><img alt="greensad.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"></span></p>

<p>Oh I'm so sorry.  I had something similar 2 weeks ago.  It was horrible.  :(  For me, it helped to vomit and sort of get it to move on, but staying hydrated was really difficult.  I did start having a lot of strong contractions and had to call my midwife.  She said that it is unusual for a body to go into labor when so ill because it wants to be healthy and well noursished for the process.  So drink as you can, a bath will help a lot too, lots of rest.  I hope you're feeling better soon!</p>

<p>Well, it took me a few days but I got over it. Stupid gastroenteritis. <span><img alt="irked.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>I'm basically due the next couple days and figured things were imminent since the Braxton Hicks were really picking up today.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>I just went to the loo and there's a little bit of spotting, as well.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>I don't know if I'm having a solstice baby but I think this kid might be here before Xmas!!</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>How exciting! How nerve-wracking!</span></p>
