i have heard from many people that they experienced flu-like symptoms before they went into labor. I have been sick the last couple days but more of a bad cold.. not sure if others experienced this? i am 39 weeks pregnant...
And for those who got the flu-like symptoms, how long was it before you went into labor?

I woke up from a dead sleep at midnight feeling like I had the world's WORST flu ever! I would feel ragingly sick for exactly 30 min and then I would get exactly 1 hour break (the timeable fashion of this "flu" should have been my first clue, lol). After 8 hours on the dot of this my water broke.

I went the the hospital because I was sick on 10/7 they admitted me, I had no clue I was even having contractions. She was born 10/8 and I just went to the hospital cause I was getting sick and could not eat.

I hope you've been seen for the leaking fluid! It's also possible that you just have the flu, not to worry :)
