Something feels off DaniJean90 2 kids; Salt Lake City, Utah 36 posts

So today I just feel really off compared to normal days...To kind of give you a low down- All last week I was having issues with preterm labor issues (Now only 35 weeks) ordered by Dr to stay down as much as possible with having a 2 yearold, I ended up in the hospital Saturday night with contractions that finally stopped after 12 hours. Was told to go home rest fulids stay down as much as possible and if you need to go into work you may but if anything happens to go straight home and rest...Well went into the Dr yesterday, Since last week I have moved from a 1 to a 2.5 baby is definately head down and yesterday morning my entire mucus plug fell out. I have had dull pain in the pelvic, vaginal, and lower back area but no contranctions since yesterday.

Well here is the weird thing..I have dropped about 5 pounds in the last week, and the last 2 days have had no appetite and today anything that I tried to eat made me sicker than a dog, I have absolutely no energy what so ever, all I have wanted to do is stay in bed all day and sleep for hours on end even with a full 8 hours of sleep. I am normally tired but never Exhausted. I truly feel like I am getting sick but I have no aches or fever.

With my daughter I never had labor symptoms besides my water breaking and my contractions were started for me cause they never started on their own...

Could anyone give an insite on what might be happening...I don't feel right.

If you're having contractions, time them. Drink tons and stay in bed or on the couch if you can. I know that I've felt off for several days also. I'm in that stage where the braxton hicks are annoying me daily but it's not labor. So there's nothing to do but wait. Which I don't mind doing, but it's very tiring.

That was one of the biggest signs i was going in to labor with both my kids. Both times, the day before I just felt off and weird. Hoping thats not the case for you for a few more weeks. Good luck momma!

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one feeling off. I'm hoping that its just the warm up my state is getting and my allergies being stupid that are making me wanna be asleep.

Oh goodness my allergies have been awful for the last few weeks. I know this is just my body warming up for labor. It's always done this with each pregnancy. I think this baby will be born in about two weeks, maybe a bit more. I really really hope he waits til at lest the 17th, because my doctor is going out of town from next week Tuesday til the 16 when he should be back. I'm praying I make it til then....
