Nausea, sickness (haven't kept anything down all day), diarrhoea, regular strong(ish) contractions every 8 minutes and I was 3cm dilated when I looked this morning... please, find me another explanation, I'm losing my nerve.

When I went into labor with DS, I called and told my mw I was either in labor or dying of food poisoning - sounds like where you are right now!<br><br>

Hmmmm.....interesting stuff happening there! I really hope you feel better if you are indeed unwell, or that you have a peaceful birthing time and regain your nerve if you are in labor!!

That's what I love most about this board -- brutal honesty!! I mean, I need to KNOW that early labor is going to make me feel like crap!<br><br>
Helen, Happy Happy Birth Vibes to you!

Erm. Nope (this is 7am, Brit time, so I was in bed. Slept through the night as well) Still contracting, more sickness, but I think this baby listened when Steve told him to stay put until the weekend . If this is labour, it's going to be a while getting going. We're going for a long walk today (the small person reading over my shoulder screamed NO and ran away when he read that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br>
The problem is that our wonderful, enlightened NHS trust consider anything before 38 weeks to be premature (anything after 41 weeks is postmature as well, so that's also a no-homebirther), and Steve doesn't want to have to be forceful and insistent. Also, our midwife is on annual leave until Saturday.<br>
Thanks- if anything exciting happens, I'll let you know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
