I have a sort of constant ache in my tummy and it keeps getting tight, but no reall pain. Just a constant dull pain. Is this maybe early labour or no? I keep getting waves of sickness and feel like im about to start shaking and pass out... Im due in 4days. And have been under a huge ammount of stress lately

I'd drink some water and lay down and try and relax... if the tightening and pain were coming in waves not the sickness I'd say it sounds like early labor... this sounds different... at least from what I experienced... but I did get sick a lot more towards the end... and that came a lot when I had braxton-hicks contractions so that might be what's happening

No problem... the best thing you can do is lay down with a big glass of water and try and relax... if the pain/ stomach tightening gets worse/ time-able... it could be early labor... best of luck!

I agree that you should rest and drink some water. If it doesn't easy up or you can start counting the time between pains I would put in a call to your dr just to be on the safe side.
